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!

*Essano Rosehip Oil VS. Sukin Facial Treatment Oil*

Hey guys! 

We are all curious in the world of facial oils but these days there are so many to pick from it can quickly become overwhelming. Today I thought I would do a comparison between two facial oils I have tried and give you my honest opinion on them. Keep in mind I have oily acne prone skin. Just because you have oily skin that doesn’t mean you can’t use facial oils! If anything it’s more of a reason for you to use an oil because the more oil you put back in to you skin after you wash your face, the less oil your skin will produce so don’t be scared to try it out (I promise you it’s worth while doing so!) 

 

Competitor No. 1 – SUKIN FACIAL TREATMENT OIL 25ML $19.99AU (www.priceline.com.au)

This facial oil is packed full of goodies! It boasts a rich blend of ingredients including Rosehip oil, Maracuja oil, Argan oil and Jojoba oil. Each of these oils play an important role in this treatment oil. Argan oil revitalises your skins complexion and helps prevent signs of ageing. Maracuja oil and Rosehip oil brighten and soften your skin giving you youthful, plump skin and Jojoba oil helps to lock moisture in your skin to keep it supple and smooth. It is recommended to apply this oil morning and night. I personally LOVE this oil, it makes my skin feel moisturised and soft  and I know I’m doing something good for my skin by using this product. I only use this at night as I do have oily skin so I feel it to be too much for my face throughout the day. Although my skin is oily this product does not make it any oiler and it also does not make my skin break out in acne, which is something a lot of people are afraid of with oils. The only thing I dislike about this is that it occasionally makes me get small black heads on my forehead but it’s nothing major and it’s one of those things you can only notice if your really looking for something to pick at!  

 

Competitor No. 2 – ROSEHIP OIL BY ESSANO WITH ACAI BERRY ANTIOXIDANT 20ml $19.99 (www.priceline.com.au)

Rosehip oil is very popular among a lot of skincare enthusiasts and for good reason! Rosehip oil reduces the appearance of fine lines, scare, stretch marks and sun damage. That’s a lot of things for one product to claim to do! A lot of people swear by Rosehip oil, Essano’s being a favourite. It has a very light, non greasy feeling and it is quickly absorbed into the skin. It is recommended to apply this oil morning and night for best results. This oil did not break my skin out or give me black heads but strangly enough it made my skin very dry. I have oily skin and I like to do what I can to reduce the amount of oil on my face but I felt this dried out my skin too much! (I never thought I would say that about my skin!) Rosehip oil is known to be a dryer oil so that obviously has something to do with it. I am still able to use this oil when I mix it with Tarte cosmetics Maracuja oil which helps add a bit of moisture. Everyone’s skin is different thighs and this may react completely different with your skin type. Both of the oils featured today have a dropper for application which is standard with most oils.

  
  

Drum roll please!! The winner is SUKIN facial treatment oil!

This oil is just amazing, It is an essential part of my daily skincare routine. It has the Rosehip oil in it as well as plenty of other good oils – what’s not to love! Anytime my skin is feeling rough or dry I smother my face in this stuff, it feels so nice on your ski. And not greasy at all. For $20 you can’t go wrong. I hope this helped you in your search for an awesome facial oil! 

Let me know if you have used these oils beforeand what your thoughts on them are, or if you use something else let me know what it is below! 
Have a beautiful day!

*REVIEW* Australis AC On Tour Contour Kit

Hey Guys!
Hope your day is going well, today I’m bringing you guys a review of the brand new highly anticipated Australis AC on tour kit!
I have been waiting for this to arrive at Priceline for a little while and it finally turned up! I’m really excited to share this with you.

IMG_0301.JPG
First of all this palette is obviously a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit (but better because it’s a fraction of the price!) at $16.95AU from Priceline this contour kit would be great for anyone just starting out in makeup or want to learn how to contour and highlight but don’t want to spend a fortune on products if you decide you dont want to continue contouring and highlighting after testing it out.

IMG_0292.JPG
Another GREAT feature on this palette is that it has instructions on how to use it on the back, which is great for beginners as it shows step by step how to use it.

The palette contains 6 powders, 3 highlighting colours and 3 contouring colours. The only down side to this palette is that the contouring colour may be to dark for people with fair skin. I have medium toned skin and I feel the colours are almost to dark for me, but if I use them lightly they are fine.

IMG_0298.JPG
(Top row – highlighters, Bottom row – contour)
The powders don’t have specific names they are just called “1,2,3,4,5,6”. The quality of the powders is great! They are beautiful and creamy I didn’t find them to be powdery at all and they applied and blended nicely on my face.

IMG_0296.JPG

So for the highlighting colours – on the left we have a general highlighting colour, great for highlighting areas like your forehead bridge of your nose, chin etc. The middle colour is a yellow toned powder which is perfect for highlighting under your eyes, anything yellow toned is going to brighten your skin and let’s face it that’s what we all need under our eyes! The last colour on the right is a shimmery highlighter perfect for highlighting your cheek bones and your Cupid’s bow. This adds a healthy sheen to your skin so help your skin look dewy, healthy and youthful.

IMG_0302.JPG

Here we have the contour colours. As you can see they are all quite dark and similar in colour, with these 3 you could use any of these for contouring your check bones, around your hairline,Malone the sides of your nose and anywhere else you feel the need to creat depth on your face. The one on the left is a warm chocolate toned brown, great for most skin tones. The middle colour is an ash toned brown, to me this is a tricky colour to work with for contouring but it might suit someone else’s skin tone perfectly! The third colour is a warm terracotta brown. This colour would be great for Summer as it is a really rich orange-brown.

Overall I LOVE this palette, it’s so affordable and would be a great present for someone just starting out in makeup or someone that’s building a makeup kit. Australis has been rocking it lately with the products they are bringing out! I am honestly excited to see what comes next.

PRO’S:
-very affordable
-great quality
-has a step by step guide
-animal cruelty free
-variety of shades

CON’S:
– might not be suitable for fair skin toned people as the contour colours are quite dark.

Thanks for reading beauties x

REVIEW! Australis AC/ME Metallic Finish Eyeshadows

Good morning Beauties ❤️
Long time no posts! I have been so busy with work the past few months as I started a new job at Priceline (absolutely love it!) and I haven’t had much time to do some reviews, but I’m here now and today I’m bringing you a quick review on the Australis metallic finish eye shadows! If you guys haven’t picked these up yet…. You need too!

IMG_0279.JPG

These gems are a creamy, foil like eyeshadow. If you love all that glitters you will need these in your life. They are a great cheaper alternative to the stila magnificent metals eye shadows. I picked mine up from Priceline for 7.95 which I thought was a great price for the quality of these eye shadows.

IMG_0280.JPG

The metallic foil finish eye shadows come in 3 different colours. I love the colours they have but it would have been great to see a couple more colours in the range like a metallic red, blue,pink or silver just to mix it up a bit. These colours probably won’t suit everyone but they are so different and it may be something that’s been missing from your eyeshadow collection! They have a beautiful creamy texture which makes them glide perfectly onto your eyelid. I found these extremely easy to work with and they blend perfectly. I set mine with a light dusting of translucent face powder just so they didn’t crease throughout the day and this worked very well.

IMG_0282.JPG
First we have ‘Plum Diddy’ which is a black eye shadow with red glitter specks in it. A very pretty vampy colour, I only wish it had a bit more red in it as when I wear it, it looks completely black. Still, this is a great colour to wear out or to a concert.

IMG_0288.JPG
Next we have ‘Bronzonce’ which as the name suggests is a light bronze colour. This is probably the most normal looking colour out of the 3. Very shiny so if you want an eyeshadow that’s going to catch the light and draw attention to your eyes, this would be the one to do that. This would look great on blue eyes.

IMG_0285.JPG
Last but not least we have my favourite colour from the collection, ‘Jay Zed’. This is a beautiful golden khaki colour. That’s the best way to describe it! It’s so different to anything I own and every time I wear this colour I get so many compliments. I thought this would be the one I liked the least but boy was i wrong. If there was one colour I would suggest to pick up it would be this one.

Overall I think the eye shadows have a great long lasting formula and offer a different variety of colours. The price is amazing for what you get. I highly recommend you guys to try one or two of these eye shadows!

PRO’S:
– different colours
– great price
– long lasting
– nice texture
– easy to work with

CON’S:
– more colours would have been nice

Have you tried these bad boys yet? What’s your favourite colour?
Have a great weekend guys!!

*REVIEW* The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky clean Scrub

Hey guys!!

Hope your having a fab week, Only one day until the weekend YAY!
Today I’m doing my first skincare product review for you, it’s The Body Shop’s Tea Tree squeaky clean scrub!

IMG_0188.JPG

First of all let me tell you what it is. The squeaky clean scrub is a foaming face scrub that leaves your skin super duper clean and unclogs your pores. This scrub is made for people with oily and/or blemished skin. It has small exfoliating beads and also some even smaller little sand like particles too get in and give you a really decent scrub.

IMG_0183.JPG

IMG_0191.JPG

Tea Tree is a natural antibacterial, so it helps to stop pimples from getting worse and it also soothes the skin. The Body Shop source their Community fair trade Tea Tree from Kenya.

So before I used this scrub I was using Pro activ. I had no intentions of swapping my daily face wash, i only stumbled across this because I had run out of my Pro activ and thought I’d grab something to use while I wait to get my next lot of Pro activ. I had used it for years and it was the only thing that kept my skin clear. Finding this Tea Tree scrub was seriously one of the best things that has ever happened to me! It is AMAZING and puts Pro Activ to shame! I used this scrub for a week and my skin cleared up completely and my face has never looked so fresh and smooth. I get compliments all the time on how nice my skin looks (and trust me this is a big deal as I’ve all
Ways had terrible skin). It also has never dried my skin out and I use this daily. It’s recommended to use 2-3 times a week (if you have sensitive skin I do not recommend using it more then 2 times a week). It has a beautiful Tea Tree scent and it also has a cooling sensation on your face while you use it.

IMG_0186.JPG

IMG_0189.JPG

The packaging is simple and nice. I don’t have any complaints about it.

Overall I am extremely surprised and happy with this product! It is defiantly the BEST face scrub I have ever used, such a great cheaper, more effective alternative to Pro activ. I recommend anyone with blemished skin to go pick one of these up or ask the lovely staff at your local Body Shop to give you a sample to try for free.

My Verdict: 10/10

Have a lovely weekend!
