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 ❤

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: Pure Paw Paw Ointment

Hey Beauties!

Everyone loves a good lip balm.. have you ever thought of using a Paw Paw Ointment instead? Paw paw Ointment locks in moisture by creating a barrier between your lips and the dry damaging wind! Check it out below..

 

img_1872

As part of my morning/nighttime skincare routine i always use Paw paw ointment to keep my lips hydrated and to prevent cracking – nothing looks worse then lipstick on cracked, dry lips! I really like Pure Paw Paw’s ointment as it comes in super cute packaging that is slim and small so it fits perfect in any bag or your pocket.

img_1872

They also come in a number of scents which includes, Watermelon (pictured above), Strawberry, Grape and Passionfruit. They all smell amazing so i cannot possibly pick a favourite.. i own them all! Overall i really enjoy using this product as part of my daily skincare routine, everyone should own a paw paw ointment as they can be used for many different things, its just handy to have around.

HOT TIP: To get your lips super silky smooth use a sugar lip scrub to remove dead dry skin and then apply Pure Paw Paw ointment before you to go bed, you will wake up with the perfect pout! I personally enjoy using the Lush Cosmetics lip scrubs!

REVIEW: Clearasil Superfruits Toner

Hey guys!

Today i am bringing you a quick review of the Clearasil Superfruits refreshing Toner. Toner’s are an important step in everyones skincare routine that often gets over looked.

Why do i need a Toner?

When you cleanse your face with face wash, your skins PH becomes unbalanced. In order to balance the PH in your skin again you use a toner! It is also great to remove any excess dirt, oil or makeup you may have missed when cleansing your face so it really is an important step.

img_1867

The down-low:

This product is very refreshing on the face just as the product claims it would be! It has a light, fresh fruit smell that makes you think of Summer and i love that! I have acne prone skin so its important that any products i use don’t break me out! The Clearasil brand is well known for its skin clearing products so i was not worried about this but incase your wondering, my skin looks amazing when i add this to my skincare routine! A little product goes a long way so i feel you would get a good 6 months at least out of this 200ml bottle. I really don’t have anything bad at all to say about this product – I love it!

REVIEW: Maybelline Contouring Palette

Hey guys!

Whats up? I feel like i haven’t made a post in a long time and to be honest its just one of those times in life where i can get inspired and motivated to do anything! buuuut I’m back and I’m bringing you a review of Maybelline’s Master Sculpt Contouring Palette!

Just the word ‘contour’ scares a lot of people because they don’t know how to do it, where to put it, what it does and how it will turn out. So i thought i would quickly explain these things to you before i jump into my review. Contouring is used for shaping your face. Pretty much any areas of the face/body you want to draw attention away from is where you want to apply your contour.  Most people use contouring on areas like cheeks, nose, forehead, chin, and neck. For example if you feel like you have a large forehead and wish to make it appear “smaller” then you would contour the sides of your forehead and around your hair line. This will draw attention away from your forehead and draw attention to areas like your eyes and nose. For your cheeks, you can apply contour in the hollows of your cheeks and a great way to figure out where this is on yourself is run your pointer finger down the side of your cheek and where you feel your finger drop in a little is where you should be contouring. This gives the illusion of a slimmer face and defined cheek bones (think Instagram makeup!). Now that you have a better understanding of what contouring is lets dive into the review!

IMG_1677.JPGThis contour kit comes in two colours – light and medium. I use the light shade and its perfect for my skin tone! (for reference i use the shade ‘Vanilla’ in the L’Oreal pro matte foundation). In this kit you get a contouring shade which fills most of the pan and a highlighting shade also. Underneath the pan they also provide you with a small travel size contouring brush and a mirror which is always handy. I don’t use the highlighting shade much as i like something a bit more full on but this whole kit would be great for contouring and highlighting newbies.

IMG_1681.JPG

I struggled to find a contour colour that didn’t make my face look really muddy and dark as all the previous brands i had tried did not provide a colour light enough for me so whenever i attempted to contour it just put me off wanting to keep trying because i couldn’t find a colour that looked half normal on me.. until now! This colour is perfect for me, you don’t need to use a lot of product at all and it applies really smoothly. I use this on most areas of my face including cheek bones, nose, forehead and chin and i don’t look like a pig who’s been rolling in mud which is always a great outcome! To apply this contouring shade i use a flat contour brush. I believe mine is from the brand models prefer.

IMG_1680.JPGOVERALL SCORE: 9/10

I LOVE this contour palette, its light enough for people with fair skin that still want to achieve pro makeup looks, its in a great travel size pan, its very affordable retailing at $19.95 at Priceline in AUS and it blends on the skin perfectly and lasts all day. If your new to contouring i highly recommend this over any other contouring product on the drugstore market – its hard to make a mistake with this product!

Thank you so so much for reading my short review, i hope i was able to give you some helpful tips and hints about contouring and a good over view of this product. Let me know your thoughts of this product below! Be sure to follow my Instagram account for new makeup looks and reviews daily.. thats all from me! Have an amazing day.

REVIEW: Maybelline Sensational lash Mascara

  
If your on Instagram you would have seen this mascara 100 times in your feed and for good reason.

Today I’m giving you a quick review of this mascara and an overall rating out of 10. So let’s gets started!! 

First of all how cute is the packaging!? I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and I’m the type of person who would buy something just because it looks nice on the shelf.  So the bottle gets a tick from me!

Next the formula, I think this mascara is great! It makes your lashes super long but not clumpy and fake looking, it lasts all day without smudging or anything like that. I feel it takes a long time to use up this product a little goes a long way. 

  
The brush is very unique, it offers a small bristle side that separates your lashes and evenly coats them and then the long bristled side is to lengthen your lashes. This method of applying the mascara is very effective and I feel each side of the brush does what Maybelline claims it does. The brush is also curved offering a perfect fit for your eyelid.
Overall I am extremely happy with this mascara. I’m usually quite picky and I have my favourites but this one is definitely up there in my top 3. It retails for $19.95AU At Priceline in Australis which is the average price for mascara in Aus so no complaints there. I’m so happy I found this one and I recommend it to everyone.

I give this mascara 8/10

Thanks for reading I hope you have an amazing day

My top 5 ‘must haves’ for people just starting out their makeup collection

  

Starting your makeup collection can be an overwhelming experience. When you suddenly decide you want and need everything that exists in the world of makeup but you can’t afford it all at once or you can’t afford it full stop. I’m here to show you a few items I think are great for beginners in makeup, that you can get a lot of use out of. A good way to start is to buy one product each pay. This way you have something to look forward each pay day and you can slowly build your collection with items you actually like and will get use out of.
1. MAC lipstick in ‘Angel’

  
It seems when people first start their passion for makeup they always look to MAC cosmetics for things to buy. If you were to pick up one thing from MAC i would suggest getting a lipstick, they have many different colours and finishes. A great colour to begin with is Angel which is a nude baby pink. This colour suits everyone and can be worn with pretty much any makeup look, it can be dressed up and down for any occasion and is a cult favourite in the makeup world. 
2. Gerard Cosmetics colour your smile gloss in ‘Nude’

  
This lipgloss has great colour pigment and can be used with ANY lipstick colour or on its own. You can use this to change a lipstick colour to a lighter colour or change the colour completely and make your own. It’s so versatile and everyone can wear it. Once again this can be dressed up or down and paired with any make up look. There are many other beautiful and crazy colours in this range and they are great quality. Gerard cosmetics often has deals on their website where you can buy them in a bunch of 2,3 or 4 and it works out to be quite cheap so it’s best to buy them while these deals are on.

3.  Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation

  
If your going to invest in one good high end foundation, this is the one to get. Double wear is a very popular foundation and for good reason. It is medium to full coverage, long lasting and has an almost perfect finish. Most people use this everyday but some, like myself save it for special occasions as it gives a flawless look and I find it can be a bit too much for everyday, but each to their own. A little goes a long way with this baby so it will last you forever!

4. Models Prefer highlighting and contouring palette

  
Contouring and highlighting is all the rage right now so of course this is a great thing to have in your collection so you can practice and play with it to try and master the art of contouring! (It’s not as hard as it seems trust me!) this palette is a more affordable version of the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour palette. The quality is great and the powders are soft and buttery, there are different colours for different shades of skin. This palette can also be used as eye shadows too so it’s definitely great value for money.

5. Urban Decay Naked Palettes

  
Lastly we have the Urban Decay naked palettes. Here I have the naked 3 palette but really any of the naked palettes would be great to have while your starting out your makeup collection. They offer a great variety of everyday/evening eyeshadow colours and you can make endless eye looks with these palettes. The naked palettes have matte and shimmery shades. If you purchase one of these you won’t find the need to buy hundreds of individual eyeshadow colours so you do get your money’s worth here, they are also great for travel in this compact metal case. 
Well that’s my top 5 picks for starting your makeup collection. If you have these along with basic things like eyeliner. Mascara and blush then you will be set for a while until you can save up and buy more exciting things! Have fun makeup shopping!!
