Peripera Corrector (Korean Makeup)

If there is one area of the makeup world that I was intrigued by but also found mindboggling it was K-Beauty. Korean makeup follows a completely different aesthetic from the one I am used to in my Western oriented world. However, I kept hearing great things about their skincare and makeup products and so I…

Colourpop The Fame eyeshadow palette

If you saw my recent eyeshadow palette declutter than my doing this review may come as a surprise. But I believe that even if I am not a huge fan of a product, I should still review it. The Colourpop The Fame palette is one I have owned for a while now but that I…

Catrice Full Satin lipstick – Review & Lip Swatches

Today’s review is a special one: it is a double whammy! What does that mean? I have combined a video in which I apply these new Catrice Full Satin lipsticks on my lips with close up pictures and a full review here on the blog. So you can watch the video if you would like…

Catrice Poreless Perfection Mousse foundation

Since the new Catrice products have been released I have been trying them out as much as I can. You will have seen me select the new Catrice Poreless Perfection Mousse foundation as part of my Shop My Stash. So I have been using this daily for more than a week to get a good…

Essence Hydrating & Perfecting primer

Currently in my shop my stash: the Essence primer I am reviewing for you today. I generally like Essence and Catrice primers that come in these little bottles. Catrice has been doing them for the longest time and I have liked every single one of them. Now that Essence does one too, I was of…

Catrice Instant Awake concealer

If you have been keeping up with my recent videos, then you will have seen me do another new Catrice video. They finally released their spring/ summer 2020 collection and I have been trying out the products some more. You may have seen me selecting their new Instant Awake concealer as part of my shop…

The Balm Balm Beach blush

In February’s Shop My Stash I selected a blush that I knew I would love but that, due to just having so many blushes in my collection, went a little bit forgotten. I think I have owned this for 2 years. No kidding. And this was my first time truly giving it a good shot….

Zoeva Eye See eyeshadow palette

For this week’s Shadow Saturday we will be having a closer look at one of my favorite eyeshadow brands: Zoeva. They do some stunning palettes and are one of the most underrated brands in the beauty world. They are a German based brand and therefore were ignored by a large part of the beauty community…

Nabla Skin Glazing highlighter

This is the second Nabla review I am posting in a week’s time, but I just so happen to be testing out a few of their products. I put their Skin Glazing highlighter in my Shop My Stash, so it is time to update you how I feel about this highlighter. I have been using…

Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation

The foundation currently in my Shop My Stash? Alongside the It Cosmetics CC cream I decided to finally put the Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation to the test. This is a foundation I have owned for some months, but I knew it would not be great for the summer time. Now that it is the winter…

Nabla Secret eyeshadow palette

Nabla is an Italian indie brand that I have been loving in recent years. Especially their eyeshadows have been some of my favorites. I bought a bunch of their singles to put into my custom Blue/ Green/ Purple palette and loved them. However, their palettes are also great as I already stated in my review…

Glossier Stretch concealer

If you saw my New York vlog and/or haul, you may remember that I visited the Glossier showroom in Soho during my trip. By now I am slowly but surely trying out the products and one of the products I put into this month’s Shop My Stash was the Glossier Stretch concealer. I had used…

ELF Swirl Foundation Brush

Are we not always looking for affordable makeup brushes? I certainly am! Some of my favorite brands to buy brushes from are Zoeva and Sigma, but those can still be on the more expensive side of things. So at times I love looking at brushes by drugstore brands. After my favorite brush for primer by…

Ace Beauté Slice of Paradise eyeshadow palette

Hi there! I was feeling something fun and bright this week. We have had such gloomy weather with lots of stormy weather, rain and just dark dreary days. So what do you do to combat the winter blues? We wear rainbow colors! And what better thing to do than to bust out a rainbow eyeshadow…

Benefit Gold Rush mini blush

My favorite all time blush? Benefit’s Coralista boxed blush. I have had it for years, I have since hit pan, and I reach for it all the time over the summer. The summer mostly as it is a bit too much for my daily makeup. Then I spotted the Gold Rush blush when I was…

Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Moisturizer

One thing I wanted to do was try more high end skincare. For most of my life I have been using affordable skincare, but I felt as if it wasn’t always super effective. That is why I wanted to try some more expensive products in the hopes that you also get more bang for your…

Colourpop Dream Street

Is this my first Colourpop eyeshadow palette review? Yes it is. I have not yet reviewed Colourpop palettes. I have reviewed their eyeshadow singles and supershock shadows (spoiler alert: love them), but never their palettes. Why? Because I was overwhelmed. If there is one brand that churns out releases it is Colourpop and so I…

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Foundation

If you watched my most recent Get Ready With Me then you may know that I was in the midst of trying the Fenty Beauty hydrating foundation. It was a foundation I really wanted to try because a) it’s hydrating, b) it comes in a bunch of shades and c) I wanted to try more…

ELF 16 Hr Camo Concealer

You know I love using this space for reviewing makeup product I have tried and one recent trial is this ELF Camo Concealer. This is a budget cult favorite so when I decided to do a full face of ELF I decided to try it. Unfortunately for me, the first trial wasn’t that great for…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture

The most controversial eyeshadow palette release in recent years? I think still, till this day it has to be ABH’s Subculture. The minute this launched people were falling over themselves to tear it down. Since then, the palette seems to have been reformulated and it also seems to be discontinued as well. That said, since…

JCAT Loose Pigment Mirror on the Wall

Time for something a little different on the blog. I try out a lot of eyeshadow, but mostly those are pressed shadows in premade palette form. What I review less is single shadows, let alone loose pigments! I only own a handful of loose pigment shadows and for good reason: they are messy to use…

Dose of Colors Monochromatic eyeshadow palettes

If you saw Thursday’s video about neutral palettes, you will have seen me feature the Dose of Colors 5 pan monochromatic palettes as some of my favorite picks for a neutral matte palette. These palettes feature small, curated, monochromatic, matte color stories that are cleverly laid out and that is why they are so easy…

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Rose Quartz

My favorite highlighter formula? Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors. I own several and have reviewed them all. Be it the white one in Pearl, the ever popular Champagne Pop, my favorites Vanilla Quartz and Prismatic Amethyst or the golden toned Prosecco Pop: I own several and it comprises every single shade that is good for my…

Revolution Pro New Neutral Lipstick in Stiletto

Ah the day I discovered red lipstick has been etched into my mind. It took some time to find a right one, but my favorite Russian Red by MAC is an oldie but a goodie. I first featured on this blog back in a 1940s inspired makeup look back in 2012!!!, so I am always…

Tarte Blush Natural Beauty

For a while now, Tarte has been making some of my favorite blushes. I bought two of them a few years ago in Seduce and Achiote and I have been loving them ever since. The shade range is not my favorite, but one shade that I had been lusting after for a while is a…

Essence Superlast Brow Pommade pencil

I don’t typically change up my brow products too much. I use them up and move on to the next one. And I have a couple of solid favorites that I go back to every time. One of those favorites? The Essence Make Me Brow brow gel. So since I love that so much why…
