Eye Shadow - Huda Beauty - Neon Obsessions eyeshadow palette - Neon Green

3.0
Created with Sketch.

8 hours ago

There are three palettes in Huda's new LE (?) Neon Obsessions 9-pan eyeshadow palette range; Pink, Orange and Green. I have all three palettes [I was just going to get the Orange & maybe the Pink too, but then the completest in me took the wheel], and to put it simply; the Neon Green is the one that isn't worth rushing out to buy and if you're not keen on the idea of doing …Read more

Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Urban Cover Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Yesterday

I'm usually Porcelain or Ivory in foundation shades (including Maybelline), but the Porcelain and the Ivory shades are both too fair in the Dream Urban Cover line. The shade Classic Ivory look dark at first, but once applied to my skin, it matches me very well. Could the high spf and anti-pollutants be altering the shades?


The big draw for me is that in the UK Dream Urban Cover …

Lipstick - Kat Von D - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - A Go Go

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 days ago

A Go Go Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is a bright orange shade, with a matte finish - and by 'bright', I mean just this side of neon [if you like this shade but want something a bit less in-your-face, the brands Studded Kiss bullet lipstick in the same shade looks a little bit less intense, due to the softer formula]. The brand's Everlasting Liner range carries an A Go Go liner …Read more

Lipstick - FLOWER Beauty - Miracle Matte Liquid Lipstick - Dark And Stormy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

13 days ago

Dark and Stormy is a cool-leaning dusty mauve shade, which comes of as slightly vampy - and it also has a hint of purple in it. A very unique shade, in my opinion.

The formula is the perfect balance between being not-too-wet and not-too-dry, so it applies easily for a liquid lipstick and dries very quickly. It's the best of both worlds when it comes to lip colour: you are getting …

Eye Shadow - Lime Crime - Venus XS - Solid Gold Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

14 days ago

The Venus XS quad in Solid Gold contains the following shades; Gilded (solid gold shimmer), Aureate (golden glow shimmer), Treasure (deep brown matte sparkle) and Trinket (warm brown matte). I'm really into this more compact type of product now, where the shades are focused around a theme; a palette that doesn't waste lots of it's space (and therefore our money) by including …Read more

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Makeup Obsession X Belle Jorden Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

16 days ago

The brand Obsession is an offshoot of Revolution; in the UK Revolution is exclusive to one store (Superdrug), so they started the Obsession brand as an exclusive to another store (Boots). The brand has started selling in international stores [I know it's Target in the US, not sure about other countries], so I thought that this would be the perfect time to look harder at some of their …Read more

Bronzers - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer - Shady Biz

3.0
Created with Sketch.

19 days ago

Shady Biz is the second lightest shade in the brand's range of bronzers and is described for being for light with-warm-undertones skintones. I'm actually fair-and-neutral toned, but the bronzer that is meant to match me [India Sun] barely shows up and has a weird greyish beige undertone on me, whilst Shady Biz is borderline too dark for me - it is orange based and can easily cross the …Read more

There is shimmer in everything except Mykonos, but it is finely milled, weightless and it doesn't outlive the bases to the highlighters - such an …
