Benefit’s newest powder, Hervana will be officially launched towards the end of January in the UK. There as a flash sale in the US (on Sephora) earlier this week and possibly one in the UK (will keep you informed!). I am really looking forward to this one because the colours are purpley-pink-berries, so different from the other box powders. Also, Benefit now has their own range of lashes – I didn’t realise this!…
One of my birthday presents from Mr C was Nars’ limited edition blush palette, named Danmari. I used to collect Nars make up, these days less so but as soon as I saw this palette I knew I had to have it. It comes in a lovely gift box (as a side note the Nars website sends products extremely well packaged, in cardboard boxes that have foam stuck to them on the inside). The […]
Cosmagic is a rather quirky little brand from Japan. Without realising, I have actually tried quite a few of their products, like their measurable mascara, glitter eyeliner and eyebrow pencil! My latest haul is their Sweet Deco Cheek Blusher which comes in 2 variations; Strawberry Pink and Peach Pink. I chose Peach Pink: This cute blusher comes with lots of bits and pieces, so to speak!
Did I ever tell you I collect Nars Multiples? Check out the tags to see my other swatches! And here is my home made Nars Multiple palette! Nars multiples are not without problems; they can be a bit oily, they used to give me spots, and they are pretty expensive at £29 each. I recently hauled G-Spot (that name!) from the counter, purely because it felt like a while since Nars released a decent multiple […]
One of my current brand crushes is Innisfree, a eco-friendly Korean brand from..well, where do you think?! They have some really interesting products, a lot of food inspired items which reminds me of Skinfood. However the Innisfree products try to be as natural as possible. I spotted this Mineral Multi Colour Blush and had to buy it – how cute?! This comes in 4 shades and I bought pink and brown, but the seller couldn’t […]
To be honest I haven’t bought anything from Illamasqua for a while. Maybe its because it’s quite dark and brooding and I’ve been in the mood for princessy and light packaging lately! However – I was sent three products from the Illamasqua ‘Theatre of the Nameless’ collection to try. I hadn’t seen the collection so I didn’t have a clue what to expect. Nail Polish in Kink £13.50, Blusher in Ambition £16.50 and Precision Ink […]
For some reason if there’s one item of make up I forget to put on it’s blusher. I think it’s because I spend the longest time on my eyeshadow, I always use some kind of concealer or foundation – and by the time I’ve done that I don’t have much time left for anything else! These Tony Moly blushers look kinda plastic but are rather nice soft subtle shades. I bought 03 Pleasure Peach and […]
To continue with the Mary Quant theme today, here is the face palette that I put together whilst I was at the shop. I picked one very pretty pressed face powder, the Face Final and two blushers in a brown and pink which fit into a Large palette (L). The face powder was about £19.50, the blushers are £14.50 and the palette was £10.50. Mary Quant also stocks loose face powder and a selection of […]
