Look who is super late to the party? Yep, that would be me. After hearing so many people rave about this concealer I finally decided to bite the bullet. Well, not really. This is the third time that I have tried this concealer. Three times! That’s perseverance. And you know what they say: three time’s a charm. So how did I fare with the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer after trying it so much?
You know I have to try it when Essence releases a new foundation. So when I spotted the #Insta Perfect foundation, I knew I wanted to give it a go. Because whenever a budget friendly foundation comes along that has potential, I am all game for trying it. And there is another reason why this foundation is unique in Essence’s range: it is their first foundation that comes in more than 3 shades.

The flying saucer highlighters by Becca are not only iconic for their packaging, but also for their insane glow. The shade selection isn’t my favorite, which is why so far I only owned Pearl. I know everyone loves Moonstone for fair skins, but it is too yellow for me. Luckily Becca continues to expand their shade range and I was excited when I saw Prismatic Amethyst.

I haven’t had much luck trying super affordable eyeshadow primers. I have used some, one even by Catrice, and none of them did the trick for me. The most successful eyeshadow primer I’ve tried at the most affordable price point is the Milani eyeshadow primer. But now there is a new contender. Catrice have released a new eyeshadow primer for their fall/ winter 2018 collection. Is it any good?

Purple eyeshadow is EVERYWHERE at the moment. If there is a new trending color in the land of makeup it is purple. From high end to budget brands: they are all putting out purple palettes. And I am not mad about that. In fact, I love it as I love a good purple eyeshadow. So much so, that I am giving away a purple palette to celebrate 8 years of blogging and reaching 1000 subs on Youtube. And it is not just any purple palette I am giving away: it is the I Heart Revolution Violet eyeshadow palette.

When I did my video giving you an overview of what is new from Catrice for fall 2018, quite a few people seemed interested in one of the new primers. For fall 2018, Catrice have come out with several new primers and one of them is a hydrating primer. So far, hydrating primers are my favorite with the Too Faced Hangover RX primer being the best I have tried up to now. How does Catrice’s Fresh It Up Aqua Fresh Hydro primer live up to that standard?

Of all the new Catrice products that were released for fall/ winter 2018, the item I was most curious after besides the foundation were the new 3D Glow powder highlighters. That is why I got 2 of the three shades. One of the shades I knew would be too dark for me but the lighter two? I was totally on board with those. Meet Pinch of Rose and Icy Glaze.
