R E V I E W: FENTY BEAUTY FOUNDATION + PRIMER

Hey Beauties,

I have a very exciting review for you today on the FENTY BEAUTY foundation and primer by Rihanna.. eeek! lets jump straight into it!IMG_2001

IMG_2004

 

PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH PRIMER

What the product claims to be: The Sephora website states that this is ‘A shine stopping, pore diffusing primer that smooths the way for a better foundation application and longer wear.’

Price: I purchased this primer on the Sephora website for $46AU, which is pretty pricey but you do get 32ml of product which is a little more then your average primer.

Packaging: It comes in a luxurious frosted glass bottle with a dusty pink lid and feels verrryy fancy, which you would expect for the price! IMG_2019

Application: This primer literally looks and feels like a hydrating, thick moisturiser. It is a soft pale pink colour, but this does not transfer to your face when applied. Although it is thick and creamy, it does not feel heavy on your skin which is good cause no body wants to feel like they are wearing a mask before they even get foundation on! I have large pores and i did notice this defused my pores, almost ‘blurred’ them and made for a nice smooth base for the foundation.IMG_2005IMG_2006

PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE LONGWEAR FOUNDATION:

What this product claims to be: ‘A soft matte longer foundation with build able medium-to-full coverage, in a range of 40 shades.’ – Sephora website

Price: This retails for $50AU just $3 more then the Primer, again you get 32ml of product so just a bit more then your average foundation.

Packaging: The Foundation comes in a glass frosted bottle with a white shiny plastic cap, matching the primer’s packaging. I prefer the pink primer packaging though as the colour is so pretty! Both the primer and foundation have a pump which is great for easy dispensing!IMG_2009

Application: Now this foundation range has a HUGE 40 shades to pick from so it was really hard to pick a shade! There is pretty much a Neutral, Pink and Yellow undertone for every single shade making this range very diverse. Women of any colour can wear this foundation! I picked up the colour 190. After watching a few reviews of this foundation on Youtube i knew that this Foundation would oxidise so this made my decision a little easier between 200 and 190. Lucky for me this was a perfect match once oxidised (Thank god!) This foundation is very thin and watery like in consistency meaning you need to work fast once its on your face. I found that one pump covered my whole face with a Kabuki flat top brush. It applies medium coverage with one pump of product but easily built up into full coverage with another pump of product. It applies really beautifully on the skin, smoothes over any flaws like blemishes, large pores and makes a lovely base for the rest of your makeup. The coverage is a really great medium coverage and buildable to full coverage.IMG_2013

Wear: OKAY so, this foundation seriously feels amazing on the skin! It is very light and weightless which is so good for my oily skin gals! On me personally it kept oil at bay for a good 6 hours or so before i felt the need to re touch (i usually retouch every 3 hours or so as my skin is extremely oily) so for me this was GREAT! It minimised the appearance of my pores and created a super smooth base. I did not notice any separating throughout the day and it did not sink into my pores. It covered all of my blemishes, scarring and veins with two pumps of product, a little definitely goes a long way with this foundation. It dries to a matte finish so there isn’t really a need to set it if you prefer not to use a powder. I did notice it transfers just a little tiny bit, but not enough to deter me from wearing this foundation. Although it is matte, i definitely get what they mean by a soft matte finish, it still looks ‘skin like’. Its not like most matte foundations, looking dry settling in lines and pores, instead this makes your skin look soft and smooth (even if you have texture) while still giving you a matte finish but not paint like.20170919_084850

OVERALL: I am actually very surprised with these products! I was very skeptical at first thinking ‘oh this is just another gimmicky celebrity makeup line its not going to be good’ but after seeing a tone of reviews online nearly everyone had positive feedback so i thought id give it a go and its absolutely beautiful! So far i have no complaints at all, being an oily skin gal i am loving the matte finishes in both the primer and foundation, its long lasting, it has buildable coverage so you have a choice of what kind of finish you can have and theres 40 SHADES – that is absolutely amazing! so you are not limited for choice. The price is reasonable for the quality and amount of product you get. All i can say is if your a foundation enthusiast, you NEED this is your life – Go get it now!!

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: Alpha-H Liquid Gold

Good morning!

You have most likely heard of Liquid Gold before, it is a cult product in the beauty world and a must have item. Alpha-H have a whole line of products in the liquid gold range ranging from serums to masks. Today i am reviewing the Original Liquid gold, lets go!

What is Liquid Gold?

As quoted from the Alpha-H website “Liquid Gold is a resurfacing treatment that effectively diminishes wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. It works like an overnight facial to brighten and revitalise tired, ageing skin and improved the overall appearance of the skin.” – Piece taken from http://www.alpha-h.com in the Liquid Gold product description.

How do you use Liquid Gold?

You simply take a cotton pad and dab a small amount of the product on there, then swipe upwards and outwards all over the face, thats it! There is no need to apply any other moisturisers or serums as the product works best on its own. If you wish to use other products with the Liquid Gold then you surely can, it may not be as effective though. Its recommended to use this product every second day as it does contain Glycolic Acid.

Why should i choose a Glycol Acid Product?

Glycolic acid helps with many things, a few of these include:

Hydration- Glycolic acid will help raise your hydration levels in your skin

Skin Firming – Glycol acid helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and over time firms the skin.

Acne scarring/ pigmentation – Glycolic Acid will help even out your skin tone by softening the appearance of acne scarring or uneven skin tones in the skin

My personal experience with Liquid Gold

At first i was skeptical as per usual but the very first night i used this i woke up the next day and wondered why my skin looked so fresh and smooth ( i suffer from acne scarring and pigmentation) i then remembered i had tried the liquid gold and after that – i was hooked! I also noticed my oil levels in my skin dropped and the oil was controllable when using this. I didn’t feel the need to check my face 20 times a day to make sure i wasn’t gleaming to the gods, Holla my oily skinned gals! Overall i really enjoy this product and did notice a difference in the texture, colour and firmness of my skin. This product is definitely worth re purchasing. If you haven’t tried it and you suffer from any of the above mentioned problems then i highly suggest checking out the Alpha-H website and reading up on their products.

REVIEW: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Hey Beauties!

Lipstick is one of my favourite parts of makeup, it has the power to change the mood and feel of your whole look with one quick swipe of your hand! Today I’m reviewing the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. Lets go!

img_1861

Packaging:

Firstly the packaging of this product is beauutiful! The lid is covered in a cute silver rose pattern with a vine style print continuing down onto the container. Then at the bottom is Kat’s signature brand label. The bottle is slim, slimmer then most other liquid lipsticks i own which is nice as its easier to fit into small bags or clutches when your heading out.

Colour & Consistency:

This liquid lipstick is extremely light weight, it almost feels like you have nothing at all on your lips. This is a  nice change as most liquid lipsticks have a heavy drying feeling which can be unpleasant for some people. The colour pay off is amazing! you only need one layer to achieve the colour displayed in the tube so you don’t waste any product.

How does it wear?:

I find this product stays on for most of the day but i do find after eating i will need to re-apply. Although it does fade off after eating i can say it fades evenly and softly so you don’t have an obvious horrible streak between the lipstick and your natural lip colour so your in no rush to duck to the nearest mirror to re-apply.

 

img_1864

TOP: ‘Melancholia’ BOTTOM: ‘Mother’

Overall:

Overall i give this product an 8/10. The only thing letting this lipstick down is the wear time compared to other brands. Apart from that it is worth adding to your collection if you are a makeup addict like myself, the colour range is great and a little product goes a long way.

Thanks for reading, have a fab day!

F O U N D A T I O N   F I X: Chi Chi Cosmetics Fabulous & Flawless Foundation review

Hey everyone! 

I am super excited to start doing a new series of posts for you guys which will focus only on foundation reviews! The new #foundationfix posts will give you in depth reviews of foundations that i try out which will include information like: the finish, the wear, the price, the colours etc etc. I cant wait to start this journey with you all and i hope you enjoy! Dont forget to give this post a like if you enjoy this sort of thing so i can keep bringing you content that you love! 

Lets get into it then!


So for our first #foundationfix feature i am reviewing the Chi Chi Cosmetics ‘Fabulous & Flawless Foundation’ you can purchase this foundation straight from chichicosmetics.com or they also sell it at Target and Myers. It retails for $29.95AU and they have 16 colours to choose from ranging from Ivory to Tanned. 

The website claims this foundation is “ultra light weight with medium coverage, long wearing and smudge proof while being super moisturising and hydrating.” 

I picked up the colour No. 2 ‘Fair’. One thing i did notice straight away was that i had to pick up a much lighter colour then i would normally reach for, i normally fall into the nude-neutral category, not fair! So the colours are quite dark and i feel like our pale beauties would struggle to find a shade to suit their skintone as the Fair shade would match my normal foundation tone. The foundation has a pump bottle which is great to keep your foundation clean and free from germs. I do find the pump a little tricky to use at times as it is not your standard pump. The product is in a frosted glass looking bottle which adds a little elegance to the appearance. 

I applied this over the top of smashbox photo finish primer and it applied quite smoothly, it is definitely a moustirising foundation you can feel it hydrating your skin as you apply it. This foundation also has a light floral scent which is not too overpowering but if you dont like scents thats one thing to look out for. I found with this foundation i got a medium coverage, which could also be worked up to a high-medium coverage. I still had some freckles/scarring showing through but nothing dramatic. See below for my before and afters. 

Before applying Fabulous & Flawless:


And After applying one thin layer of Fabulous and Flawless followed by touching up with the product where i felt i needed too. 

I found this product applied best with a flat top Kabuki brush. I did also apply one side with a beauty blender but it didnt give enough coverage and i felt like i wasted product doing it this way so brush is best! 

The foundation sat really nicely on my skin (i have large pores and oily skin with the occasional break outs) it did not make my pores look bigger or sink into them which is a must for any foundation i use. I would say this foundation has a satin type finish, i notoced a dewy glow to my skin while wesring this one. It did feel a little heavier on my skin then what i like due to the moisturising components and my skin also got oiler a lot quicker throughout the day but apart from that the coverage and the product held up for a full 10hrs. It did not become patchy even though my skin is more oily with this product which is good – nothing worse then patchy foundation! 

One big highlight for this product is that it looks super flattering in photos, my skin looked absolutely flawless in a photo i uploaded on Instagram featuring this foundation. It also does not have any flashback which is another plus.

 Check out the below photos for swatches of the Fair shade!

With Flash:


Overall im pretty impressed with this foundation, it gives great coverage and lives up to its word by hydrating the skin as well as giving medium coverage. It wont be one i reach for on a daily basis only because my skin is far too oily to wear something like this everyday but for the occasional day where i feel like having a nice glowing look, it will work perfectly! I am not the biggest fan of the pump they have used on the foundation and i also feel like the colour range could be improved but apart from those few things, for $30 its worth giving it a go! 

Thanks so much for reading guys, let me know if you enjoyed the first #foundationfix post and dont forget to check out my instagram page! Have a beautiful day!
