Liquid highlighter, no scratch that, liquid anything if it’s a color product is not my favorite. So when I find one that I like, of course I need to rave about it. Meet Essence’s #Insta Perfect liquid highlighter. This is the liquid highlighter that beats all liquid highlighters. I have to admit, I haven’t tried that many, but as far as liquid highlighters go this is a very easy to use, beginner friendly, foolproof liquid highlighter.Read more
Summer time is THE time in the year to bust out your liquid and cream products. I certainly loved using the Catrice Bouncy Bronzer last month and every year I reach for liquid highlighters too. Layered under foundation, over foundation or on bare skin: a liquid highlighter can add the dimension and glow you need for a hot summer day. Today we are looking at one of my longstanding favorites but that I hadn’t gotten round to reviewing yet. Meet the L’Oreal True Match liquid highlighter.Read more
One of my favorite liquid lipstick formulas? Ofra Cosmetics. I already wrote about a first round of lipsticks I tried in 2017. After I did my declutter and passed on the one shade I never wore, I knew I wanted to buy another to replace it. The one thing truly missing from my makeup collection? A classic red liquid lipstick. For some reason I had the hardest time trying to find such a thing. Will the addition of Ofra’s Atlantic City fill the gap in my makeup collection?Read more
For fall 2018, Essence has of course also released some new lip products. They have revamped their entire line of velvet matte lipsticks and introduced some new liquid lipsticks too. Where I wasn’t a huge fan of the new Catrice lip products as they are not my cup of tea, I am much more excited about showing you these new Essence lip products. So let’s get to it.

Blue lipstick is not everyone’s cup of tea, but as you know, I like trying some weird shades. I have a history of reviewing lipstick lines by trying a nude, bright, red and a ‘weird’ color if the brand does them. And lately that has led me to wearing some blue lipsticks in my recent videos. I have been trying blue lipsticks for a while, but had not yet found quite the right one. Will these blue liquid lipsticks by NYX be the perfect blue lip?

I am not a huge fan of liquid eyeshadow. Creams I can get down with as they give you a bit of play time. A liquid eyeshadow however, can be difficult to apply as it usually sets and then just won’t budge. Especially, if it’s a super colorful or smokey shade, it is quite difficult to create a pretty diffused look. However, Essence came out with these metal shock liquid eyeshadows some time ago and they make for some of the prettiest affordable glitter eyeshadows I have ever seen.

You all know about my love for unusual lip colors right? So what about a straight up taupe? Named OG Ghoulist, this is a liquid lipstick cult classic by LA Splash. And the name couldn’t be more apt: this greyish toned brown is definitely not for the faint of heart.
