Lately, Kat Von D has become quite the controversial brand as her personal opinions have sparked quite the reactions in the beauty community. However, aeons before all that mess happened, I purchased the Shade & Light Contour palette. Not to be confused with the Shade & Light eyeshadow palette, this is the face version of that palette. Of course, contouring and face palettes have had their moment in the beauty community as well it seems, but I like this enough still to talk to you about this in a review.

Blush, bronzer, highlight: without it a makeup look just isn’t complete. And I may be a little late to the bandwagon with this blush, but since it is summer time, I cannot pass up showing you this Too Faced Love Flush Blush. That’s a mouthful, but it is a seriously great blush to have. I have two of them and today I am showing you the brightest of the two, as I love wearing shades like this in the summer time.

How Deep Is Your Love
I am a lazy makeup wearer when it comes to touching up. I have a tendency to do my makeup in the morning and then just let it me. Most days I even forget to reapply my lipstick. However, I do like to have a few things on hand as you just never know how your day might go. My favorite item for carrying on the go? The Soap & Glory Kick Ass concealer.

I am not going to lie: I am not a massive fan of colour correctors. They just seem like an extra step that doesn’t do anything a regular concealer can’t do either. However, I have been big on using my Bobbi Brown corrector, but that is of course quite expensive. Since that is running low, I want to see if I can find a more affordable alternative. Then I saw that Catrice do some too and so I decided to try two of their colour correctors.

In the summer time, I love a shimmery cheek. My favorite blushes for the summer time have shimmer, but what I love even more is an all-in-one cheek product that warms up my complexion, shines like a highlight but has enough pink to work as a blush on me. One such product that just screams summer to me is the Terracotta powder by Flormar.

A good facial SPF is a product I have struggling to find. I last reviewed one that was recommended to me by a friend back in 2015. While that worked fine in terms of SPF, it sadly didn’t work well on my skin in combination with other skincare or under makeup. It was too rich and after giving it a consistent try, I found it pilled off. This meant I was back on the look out for a good face SPF that would not only protect my face from the sun, but also looks good under makeup and preferably works as part of my skincare routine. You can imagine how great I thought this TBS Skin Defence SPF might work for me as it promises to deliver just that.

It has finally arrived in The Netherlands: the Urban Decay Backtalk palette. Quite possibly one of the most dividing eyeshadow palettes of 2018. Because for as many people who liked this, there was another person who didn’t. I thought the palette looked good enough to give it a try. This is my kind of color scheme and that is why this palette was high on my wishlist. It just took forever to make its way across the pond.
