Eye Shadow - ColourPop - Jelly Much Shadow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

12 days ago

I literally do not know why people do not talk about Jelly Much Shadow - this stuff is amazing!

I like a good cream shadow, same as I like those glittery liners by Urban Decay or Stila's liquid glitters. This is, however, something else. Imagine gel and mousse having a baby? Well this is pretty much what the texture feels like. You have your metallics, you have your fine-glittery …

Highlighters - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Body Lava Body Luminizer

5.0

12 days ago

This stuff smells insanely good, it looks insanely good too (as long as you use it sparingly).

There are people who hate on Body Lava, saying it stained their clothes or made their skin feel sticky. Well, ladies and gentleman, you only need one pump. If you are using too much product, this is when you are going to feel like you've slathered honey all over your body. Little goes a …

Lotions/ Creams - Sol de Janeiro - Glowmotions Glow Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

12 days ago

In case you want your skin to glow, but without any stickiness or extra glitter, Glowmotions is exactly what you should be trying this summer (or any time of the year really).

These give me that subtle sheen, nothing too sparkly or greasy. That "glaze" which perfects the way your body looks. Wear it on your arms, legs, decolletage or even face (although I have yet to try the …

Blush - Buxom - Wanderlust Primer Infused Blush

4.0

12 days ago

Although they do not look that exciting in the pan, these must be one of the prettiest and most wearable blushes that are currently sold at Sephora.

Let's be clear - I do not like their somewhat uber sweet tropical scent, but they do look flawless on the skin. I love that they are made without a plethora of nasty ingredients, that can be often found in other blushes. The price is …

New hot lipstick alert! (this one is for all the classic lipstick lovers out there)

Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick is gorgeous. This collection offers 30 shades split into five colour categories: nudes, pinks, reds, corals and mauves. The finish here is natural-satin with some shades having a subtle sheen. They glide on like a dream, feel comfortable on the lips (lightweight and …

Eye Shadow - ColourPop - Pressed Eyeshadows

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I love a good high-end eyeshadow palette, but as someone, who also loves to experiment with various colours (without a desire to break the bank) I must say - I enjoy Colourpop as well.

Now, these shadows might not be your PMG or Charlotte Tilbury. However, they are just as good (if not better) than a lot of luxury or even mid-range brands that we all know and love. I prefer Colourpop …

Lipstick - Bite Beauty - Outburst Longwear Lip Stain

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

For a person, who despises lip stains, I must confess these caught me by surprise!

Outburst Longwear Lip Stain is a newer launch for Bite Beauty; so far you only get three bright summer shades, but hey - that is pretty much all you need. They feel like a lipbalm, appear like a bold natural-satin lipstick and fade gracefully leaving a bright berry stain on the lips (in my experience all …

Brows - NUDESTIX - Eyebrow Stylus Pencil & Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Forget the pencil - this brow gel is amazing!

I have naturally bushy, long brows and no gel can keep them in place. There is nothing that saddens me more than seeing sad, unruly brows that just poke in every direction. This Nudestix brow gel is clear and oh-so-potent! It keeps my brow hairs up and in place all day long. Feels a touch crispy, but who cares? It works and will stay put …

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Caviar Chrome Veil Liquid Eye Shadow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Unlike the previous reviewer, I actually had a very nice experience with these new Chrome Liquid Eye Shadows.

The key is to understand that this is not Stila type of a liquid eye shadow product (one where you get a lot of glitter on top of a colour base). These Laura Mercier shadows run sheer and have more of a sophisticated, minimalistic vibe to them. They work best on top of the …

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - On The Run Mini Palettes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

The only thing I don't get is why no one talks about these stunning mini On The Run Palettes?!

I know Born To Run was a huge hit in the makeup community, but these little guys are equally amazing. You pay less money but get six colour-coordinated shadows of the same size. As much as I like big palettes, often times I won't use even half of what's in there - whereas these …
