I had never tried any mineral powder makeup before so I was delighted to be gifted this 7 Piece Loose Minerals Starter Kit* from Thin Lizzy to try out. I was already a massive fan of their concealer crème so I was dying to give these products a go as soon as they arrived.
I’m a huge fan of L’Oreal products. They’re on the higher end of the affordable brand spectrum with high quality foundations, eye shadows and lipsticks. They’ve actually had some great offers on recently so I managed to pick up a few that have been on my list to try including the Infalible foundation that I reviewed this week and these L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks.
These lipsticks were brought out in celebration of their 30 years on the market. There’s a wide range of colours and a couple of different finishes which I think is a great thing to have in a lipstick collection. I got a matte finish in shade 640 and a cream finish in shade 335.
As you’ve probably guessed by now I am completely obsessed with lipsticks. I don’t think I’ll ever have too many. My favourite affordable brand for lipstick has to be Maybelline. I’ve so many of Maybelline in my collection and most of these are the Color Sensational so today I’m going to tell you why and swatch some of my faves.
Before Christmas I discovered that Elf Cosmetics is now available in Australia!! I never got the chance to try any of their products because it was never available in Ireland or Australia so I was excited with my discovery. Elf is known to be a brand with affordable products that really work so of course I wanted to put on to the test.
I chose the Tone Adjusting Face Primer in the lavender shade. The reason I chose a primer was simple, I ran out of my trusty Smashbox. The reason I chose the lavender shade is because I wanted something that was brightening and something that would even skin tone.
This Christmas I was completely spoiled with the amount of palettes I got as presents. I got so many that have been on my wishlist for ages and I’m still feeling like a very lucky girl with the friends I’ve made here in Australia. One of the amazing palettes I got was an Hourglass Modernist eyshadow palettes and the I got the shade ‘Exposure’. This palette is absolutely stunning for many reasons so keep reading for review, swatches and eyeshodow looks I’ve created!
Today I’ve a review and some say he’s of the the Revlon Colorburst lipsticks. These lipsticks have a huge colour selection and the even have different finishes. I love matte lipsticks so I naturally gravitated towards these. Here’s what I thought.
As soon as this product came out I was dying to get my hands on both this and the matte tan. They weren’t out in Australia and I don’t believe they are yet still but you can order then from Cloud 10 beauty which is exactly what I did. Today I’m just going to talk about the shimmer because this is the one I’ve tried out the most! Keep reading for more info and pictures.
Since getting The Balms Mary Lou Manizer I’ve been dying to try more of their products because that highlight certainly lived up to all the hype! The next The Balm product I bought was Meet Matt(e) Hughes and I was delighted to get the shade commuted especially since it’s always selling out. I’m Obsessed with liquid lipsticks and this one didn’t disappoint.
I’ve said in the past that I had terrible acne in my teens that has gone but I still get a bad breakout every now and again. What woman doesn’t?! I know how having these skin problems can really get you down and today I’m writing about some products that have made a difference to my skin during my breakouts and I think these products will make all the difference to you too.
