Spring lipsticks

Spring lipsticks

This week I thought I would do an extra beauty blog post for you. I thought we could talk about some of my favorite lipsticks to wear in the summer time. Think pink, coral and just all the bright goodness anyone could wish for. I have selected 6 lipsticks: 3 high end and 3 more affordable options that I absolutely adore for the spring time.  spring lipsticks

H&M Beauty blush

H&M Beauty blush

Shame on me! I’ve been a bad beauty blogger. Why? Because this review is so long overdue. I have had these products for close to four years and I just never got around to writing this up. And that even though one of these blushes is one of my all time favorites. What’s wrong with me? So even though I should have definitely made this blog post a long time ago, let’s not ramble and get down to business and on to the review.  H&M beauty blush review swatch cantaloupe tawny peach

Beauty Blender vs Real Techniques makeup sponge

Beauty Blender vs Real Techniques makeup sponge

Let’s talk cult beauty products for a minute okay? In the world of makeup there are these products that quickly and consistently have a cult status. In terms of makeup application tools, the makeup sponge, once shunned as a useless, made a huge comeback when Beauty Blender launched their revolutionary new sponge. And as with everything that becomes an overnight sensation, other brands started copying it. I already reviewed the Primark one, which I love. However, the original copy of the Beauty Blender is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.  beauty blender real techniques makeup sponge review

L’Oreal True Match concealer

L’Oreal True Match concealer

Some people love foundation, but when it comes to base products, I’m a concealer kind of girl. I’m not sure why, but I just LOVE trying concealers. It all started with the OG blogger favorite: Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and I haven’t looked back. Even back when I didn’t wear any foundation, I was already wearing concealer. So yeah, concealer is my jam. When L’Oreal released a True Match concealer to go with their True Match foundation which I love, I knew I had to try it.

5 new Essence lipsticks

5 new Essence lipsticks

In their new collection for spring/ summer 2018, Essence naturally came out with a bunch of new lipsticks and lipglosses. I decided to try a few! By now I have been able to put these on my lips to see how they feel, look and wear. For this review, I have grouped all 5 lipsticks together as I felt the individual lipsticks didn’t warrant their individual reviews. Since we have quite a few things to talk about, let’s dive straight in.  new 2018 essence lipsticks review swatch Essence Colourboost Vinylicious liquid lipstick Barbie’s Favorite Essence Colour Up Shine On 06 Strawberry Popsicle & 14 Leather Vamp Essence This is Me Nude Lipstick Retro Macaron Essence Holo Wow Dewy Lip Shine Butterfly Flap

The Body Shop Skin Essence

After trying the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Skin Essence, I knew I wanted to try some alternatives. It was the first skin essence I tried and it was a product I had never used before. So what is a skin essence? It is a step in your skincare routine that you apply after cleansing but before moisturizing. The product helps to have your skincare sink into the skin much better. If you have dry skin like me, it’s an absolute life save. So how did I fare with this The Body Shop version?the body shop skin essence vitamin e aqua boost essence lotion review skincare swatch
