R E V I E W: NYX LINGERIE LIQUID LIPSTICK

Hello Beauties!

Liquid lipsticks are everywhere now, all the big beauty brands sell them and if  your looking to buy one..or two or three it can be hard to know where to start! Hopefully this is where i can help you by reviewing the NYX Lingerie liquid lipsticks! If you want to know all about these lipsticks then keep reading!

IMG_1957

P R I C E:

I purchased my liquid lipsticks from Priceline for $14.95AU, i feel like this is a reasonable price and a nice medium between high end and low end lipsticks. Although if you plan on buying the whole collection this could end up being a small fortune! You get 4ml’s of product in each tube.

P A C K A G I N G:

The lingerie liquid lipsticks come in simple packaging, not too bulky – perfect to fit into a small clutch or bag if need be. It has a wand applicator with a long, flat tip. Im not particularly a fan of the applicator as i have small undefined lips and without a point on the wand and it being so large i find it difficult to get the perfect lip with this, i end up going back with concealer to create a nice even “lip line”.

R A N G E:

This range is all about the more subtle, nude shades hense the name of the line! There are 24 shades all up ranging from pinky nudes, to peachy nudes to deep browns. There is definitely a nude for everyone in this range. I feel as though there is quite a good selection to pick from because they have those “in-between” colours that a lot of other brands don’t have! so i didn’t find my self having the usual dilemma of ‘oh i like that one but i wish it was bit lighter or a tad more peachy’.

W E A R:

I am pretty impressed with how these wear over the day! compared to some other brands of liquid lipsticks these are very lightweight on the lips and you only need one thin layer to get full colour payoff. If you do more then one layer it does tend to cake up and dry out so try not to layer it up if possible, also if you can’t stand the ‘dry’ feeling of matte liquid lipsticks i find patting on a light layer of lip balm before applying the lipstick   works really well to avoid that feeling without compromising the matte finish.

 

Top to Bottom: Lace Detail, Push Up, Bedtime Flirt, Embellishment, Exotic

O V E R A L L:

Overall i think these lipsticks are a great buy! The quality for the price is really good, you get a decent amount of product – they last a really long time and the colour range is great… 24 shades!? Its hard to resist buying every colour! There is definitely a shade for everyone in this range.

Thanks for reading lovelies ❤

Colour Pop Cosmetics Pressed Eyeshadow Review

Good morning Beauties!

I have been purchasing a lot of makeup recently and one of the things i bought a few months ago was the colour pop new pressed eyeshadows. I already had the super shock eyeshadows and loved them so i was excited to try out the pressed eyeshadows.

img_1961

PRICE:

Guys, these eyeshadows are so cheap. One thing colour pop does right is their prices! Colour pop products are perfect for anyone starting out in makeup and doesn’t want to spend a fortune, or just for those people who love a good quality product for a low price! The pressed eyeshadows retail for $5US on the Colour Pop website – so. cheap. I can never help my self when browsing through the website, i end up with 20 eyeshadows because well, why not!

APPLICATION:

These eyeshadows are so smooth and silky, you can’t even feel the product on your skin! I typically use a soft fluffy brush to apply these eyeshadows to the crease and then a flat stiff brush for the lid, or my finger – whatever I’m feelin that day. Since the product is so soft it really makes application a breeze as it goes on so perfect that its hard to make any mistakes really. I haven’t tried any of the lighter shades so i couldn’t tell you if they come off chalky at all but the darker shades i have purchased are lovely.

img_1962

Colours Top to Bottom: Made to last, I owe you, wait for it, Making moves, Stay Golden.

PACKAGING:

The pressed shadows simply come in a metal pan that you will need to put into your own palette, i use a z palette to hold mine. So if you don’t have one of these it could be a bother as you will either need to purchase one or, leave the pan in the plastic sleeve it comes in so you don’t risk dropping it and cracking the shadow, or losing it.

OVERALL:

I absolutely LOVE these eyeshadows! since buying these i have used them on a daily basis and i can’t put them down. I will definitely be purchasing more of these and for the price i might just buy every colour available! I do hope they extend the line and bring out more colours in the pressed eyeshadow range.

Thanks so much for reading guys! Check out my Instagram for more beauty and makeup lovin!

Tarte Cosmetics Shape Tape Concealer Review

Hey guys!

Everybody loves a good concealer and has particular things they always consider before purchasing one, it hopes it will be the perfect pick! The Shape Tape Concealer from Tarte is everywhere on the internet at the moment, you can’t miss it! So i thought a review of this concealer will help a lot of people decide if they want to fork out the money to buy it, or not!img_1953

PRICE:

Firstly the price is definitely on the more high end side retailing for $37US on the Tarte website. This may seem a little too much for some people for a concealer but i do feel you get a lot of product out of this as a little goes a long way!

PACKAGING:

The packaging is a simple plastic tube with a twist off lid and a doe foot applicator. Let me tell you, the doe foot applicator is HUGE! It does make it easy to get as much product as you need in one swipe for time poor gals, although i feel like i always end up with wayy too much product on mine and i constantly need to wipe the tip on the edge of the bottle other wise i end up wasting product because i have too much on my face and no amount of blending is going to camouflage that! Another thing that frustrates me about this packaging is that because too much product comes out and i wipe the excess on the tip of the bottle, i end up with concealer all over the twist section of the cap and to me that is such a waste of product. The packaging could be improved.img_1954img_1956

APPLICATION:

This concealer honestly applies like a dream! it is so creamy yet light on your skin, it does not look cakey what so ever yet still gives you full coverage. One thing i struggle with is creasing. Every concealer i use always creases within seconds and i can’t even get in quick enough with a setting powder before the creasing starts, but with the Shape Tape i honestly did not have this problem at all! I was really shocked at how well it sat on the skin without being set with a powder. This concealer also has a light floral scent which is really nice and refreshing while still not being over powering. I picked up the colour Light-Neutral and i found this perfect for my fair skin tone. I use a darker foundation when i fake tan and this still matched perfectly to my darker foundation as well.

WEAR:

I wear this every single day and let me tell you, this baby holds up SO well… its amazing, on my skin it does not crease,slide off, fade, nothing! it just stays perfect how it should be all day. I also applied some of this on my eyelids as i have prominent veins on my eyelids and then eyeshadow over the top of that and it did not effect my eyeshadows wear either which is great. When it comes to the wear of this i honestly have no complaints what so ever.

OVERALL:

If your looking for a full coverage, build able, long wearing, non creasing concealer that you can also use for highlighting AND contouring, then i highly recommend picking this one up! Its totally worth the money and you get a lot of product. I have definitely found my new holy grail concealer! Tate have totally stepped up their game lately with their products and i can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

Have a beautiful day!

Review: Sleek Highlighting Palettes

Morning Beauties!

Today I’m doing a review of the cream and powder highlighting palettes from Sleek Cosmetics. I have seen and heard a lot about both of these and i am excited to share my opinions with you!img_1900

Packaging:

The packaging is super sleek and stylish, the powder compact has a reflective gold case with 4 shades inside while the cream compact has a gun metal coloured case and also has 4 shades. Each case comes with an applicator brush to use which is convenient for any one using these palettes on the go or while travelling. There is also a large mirror on the inside of the lid. The exterior is a sturdy case which i feel is good for protecting the product inside  while its in your handbag or makeup case and again for those travelling with the palette.

Product:

Cream – I am not a huge fan of cream anything really as i feel powder is easier to work with, Although these cream highlighters do have a nice colour pay off and seem to be quite long lasting – they dont budge during my 12 hour days which is great! One of the shades in this palette is a powder which is great if you didn’t want to buy the two palettes. There is a nice variety of shades in here including a frosty cream, a pinkish gold, a pale gold and a darker bronze colour. I feel there is a nice range of colours for all skin types to pick from this palette, this would be a great one to add to a makeup artists kit.img_1902

Powder: One thing i love about this highlighting palette is that it is so different to everything else on the market! The colours are not your ordinary gold, pale gold and bronze, Sleek have mixed it up with this one adding a frosty pinkish lavender shade and a coral orange shade – perfect for anyone who doesn’t like to follow mainstream trends and is a unique individual. The colour pay off is great the only thing i don’t really enjoy is there is a lot of glitter in these colours, i prefer a soft shimmer to give a subtle glow. I also feel like the colours are really light once applied so people with tanned or dark skin may find these shades hard to work with as they will give off a frosty colour. This palette again has one cream shade for variety.img_1903img_1906

Overall:

These palettes are super cute and stylish, have plenty of shades for variety so a lot of people can use these and they are really affordable! You can’t really go wrong with it! These palettes would be great for anyone starting out their makeup collection or kit. Have you used these highlighting palettes before? If so, whats your Favourite shade?

Thanks for reading, have a lovely day!

F O U N D A T I O N F I X: Kat Von D Lock It Foundation

Good morning Beauties!

My second #foundationfix feature is the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation! This foundation is very popular in the makeup lover world so i feel its one worth reviewing.img_1925

Lets kick it off with what the Company claims this foundation will do for you: ‘This foundation has 21% pigment (wow), has a blend of siliconic elastomers and esters which bind the formula so your foundation is fade free.’

There really wasn’t too much on the website about this product other then what i just showed you which is weird, although this foundation is really hyped about its full coverage which explains why it boasts about 21% pigment.

THE PACKAGING:

This foundation comes in a plastic cylinder and has an airless chamber to avoid  contamination and helps to maintain the foundations consistency. I think the packaging is very nice, i believe Kat Von D designs all her own patterns in her makeup line which is pretty cool, and it adds a nice touch to her line. The bottle also comes with a little plastic lid which i recommend keeping as it prevents you from accidently pushing out product while its in your bag or suitcase etc.img_1935

HOW IT APPLIES/WEARS:

This foundation is extremely thick, in saying that i believe you only need a small amount of product as the pigmentation is so full on that you wouldn’t want to go overboard and end up looking cake. I use about a pea size amount and only one layer is necessary to get full coverage with a beauty blender. If you prefer a sheer, natural or skin like foundation this one is not for you! It sets matte and does tend to look a little un-natural. I mainly reach for this if i am looking for flawless coverage for a special event, this foundation is not one  would wear on a daily basis personally. The foundation wears really well throughout the day, staying matte and does not fade or slide off so it is great when you are really relying on your foundation to last all day and night! I really like matte finishes so i do find this foundation to be flattering on my oily skin but only when used in a small amount, its easy to go overboard with this one!  See below for photos of the foundation on my skin and also with and without flash on my wrist.screenshot_20170130-142313

Without Flash

With Flash

OVERALL:

I believe this foundation would be great for makeup artists to have in their kit for photo shoot makeup, or for anyone who loves a good matte, full coverage foundation. You get a great amount of product for the price considering how little you need to use. This product is also vegan. The only issue i have with this is it makes my skin break out like crazy! I am assuming it has something to do with the pigmentation as i normally don’t break out or if i do its no where near as bad as what it is with this foundation. I would recommend using this for special events or for occasions where you need your foundation to hold up through a long, hot day. I probably wouldn’t personally re purchase this as i just don’t use it enough! Have you tried this foundation? Whats your thoughts on it?

I hope you guys enjoyed my review, have a beautiful day!

REVIEW: L’Oreal Paris False Lash Wings Mascara

Good morning Beauties!

I swear every time i find my new favourite mascara the next one i try is even better! At the moment i am loving the L’Oreal Paris false lash wing mascara, it gives me the perfect lash length and volume every time! Before i used this i was a die hard fan of Maybelline Mascara’s (Maybelline is actually owned by L’Oreal so its pretty much L’Oreal’s cheaper sister brand!) I actually received a free goodie box at a Priceline conference i attended last year that had this mascara in it so i thought why not give it a go – it was free after all.

IMG_1641.JPG

This mascara claims to lift and fan out your eyelashes and it does a great job of it! I believe its the brush that makes this mascara amazing. It has very small hard plastic bristles which separate your lashes and coats them evenly, making application a breeze. If you happen to get some on your eyelid it is extremely easy to remove unlike some other mascaras i have tried, simply get a cotton tip and twist it on top of the mascara and it should come right off!

 

IMG_1642.JPG

I find this mascara lasts all day and well into the night without flaking or smudging and it also comes in a water proof option for people with watery eyes etc. The false lash wing mascara retails for $25.95AU at Priceline but keep an eye out for a good bargain as L’Oreal is always having massive sales!

PRO’S

  • easily accesible
  • gives lashes length and volume
  • fans lashes out to give the effect of falsh eyelashes
  • affordable
  • brush makes application easy

CON’S

  • I seem to run out of product quite quickly

 

Well thats it guys, thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have an amazing day ❤

** TOP 5 HIGHLIGHTERS/ILLUMINATORS**

Hello Beauties! 

It has been a while! I do apologise for not posting anything for a good few months, to be honest I have been quite lazy after work but now I’m back and trying to get on top of things. So today I’m showing you something I am very excited about, my top 5 highlighters! Everyone loves a good highlight whether you have dry skin, oily skin or normal skin there’s a highlighter out there for you, you just need to find the right one for your skin. Highlighters come in all different textures and colours, there are soo many available on the market and hopefully showing you my top 5 can narrow it down a bit for you if your looking to start using a highlighter or you want to try a new one. Let’s get into it!

  
 
Let’s start off with Gerard Cosmetics BB Plus Illumination Creme ($36 US)

This Illuminator is a deep gold colour, it would suit most skin types especially medium to dark skin tones. It can be used in many different ways.. It can be used as a primer, a cream highlighter or on its own. You can also mix this with your foundation to give your foundation a dewy finish. What I love about this is that it’s not cakey on top of your foundation as a highlight on your cheek bones and where ever else you use it. It lasts all day and it feels light on your skin.  It has abut of glitter in it so if you really want to shine this is the one for you! Also, Gerard Cosmetics always have cheap bundle sales so keep an eye out for those because you can find this much cheaper in the bundles. I baught mine on the Gerard Cosmetics website.
  
Next we have Becca Cosmetics Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal ($60 AU)

I got this one off the Becca Cosmetics Website and I have to say it’s definitely worth purchasing this one. I was hesistant for a while to buy it because of the price because let’s face it – the average person doesn’t have $60 to blow on a highlighter on a regular basis, but I caved in and baught it and boy am I glad I did! A little goes a long way with this guy! You will send beams into space with this highlighter! It’s very intense but at the same time for a powder highlighter it blends seamlessly and doesn’t look powdery at all. It’s such a beautiful colour – light enough to highlights the areas it is applied to but dark enough to give you a golden glow and not wash you out. This ones great when your going out and want all eyes on you.

  
This one is the Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Illuminator ($14.95 AU)

Now let me just say this product will last you your whole entire life! It is the biggest tube of Illuminator I have ever seen and for $14.95 you can’t really go wrong with it! This Illuminator is great for anyone trying highlighting for the first time. It is affordable and very easy to work with, you just dab a few drops on your cheekbones, nose and cupidity bow and your good to go! This colour is ‘Angel Mist’ the range has 4 colours to choose from for all skin tones, I picked mine up from Priceline.

 
Next we have The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer ($34.95 AU) 

I baught mine of MYQT.com.au. This highlighter has been a favourite among beauty enthusiasts for a long time! It’s a beautiful champagne colour and it has a lot of shine. This one looks beautiful on mid tone skin colours. I always seem to reach back for this one every now and then it’s a staple in my collection.

  
Lastly we have Becca Cosmetics Liquid Shimmering Skin Perfector ($66AU)

This is probably my favourite one of them all! It looks so beautiful and natural on everyone. It truely looks like your glowing from within. There is no glitter chunks in this so if you don’t like the overly glittery highlighters then this one is for you. It makes your skin look soft and dewy all day long. I have oily skin and I don’t find this product to make my skin look like a greasy pan although I only apply it to certain areas of my face. 
Well that’s my top 5 highlighters I hope you seen something you liked and want to try out they are all totally worth the money and I recommend them to everyone!

Have a beautiful day!
