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.

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!

July favourites ❤️

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post today to share with you my monthly favourites for July, I’m super excited to share these with you!!

Let’s get started….
 
First off is the new Maybelline master sculpt contouring and highlighting palette. Guys, this is AMAZING! If you are someone who struggles to find a contour shade that doesn’t look too orange or too muddy on you then you NEED to try this in the colour ‘light/medium’ it’s the perfect colour for light skin tones and even some medium skin tones. It’s great for every day wear without looking too full on and I’m in love! 
Number 2 is the Australis cosmetics Blemish Buster primer. This has become something I use every day. It’s extremely lightweight and I honestly do believe it helps to keep my skin clear and it doesn’t make it worse like some primers do. This primer is great and Australis does not test on animals so you can feel good about purchasing this one.

Next is MAC cosmetics lipstick in ‘girl about town’. I LOVE this bright pink lipstick, it’s one that just looks good on its own with a basic winged eyeliner. It brightens up my mood and my look for the day and everyone looks good wearing it. A cheaper dupe for this lipstick is the Rimmel lipstick in No. 20. They are pretty much identical, Girl about town just lasts a little bit longer.

Last but not least the one I’m most excited about is the new L’Oreal infallible 24hr matte foundation. There has been so much talk about this foundation and for good reason too! It has a flawless finish and I find a small 5 cent piece size amount is enough to do your whole face which is great for those who like to make their product last. I am not normally a huge fan of matte foundations as it can look cakey really quickly but this is just something on a whole new level. If you haven’t tried it I definitely recommend giving it a go but if you do be sure to buy the primer as well as I have heard its a lot better with the primer (I have only used it with the primer).

Everything I have mentioned here I baught from Priceline (except for the MAC Lipstick which I purchased off the MAC website). 

I hope you enjoyed reading this, comment below what you have been loving this month and why, I would love to know!
