NYX Round Lipsticks

IMG_3159I’ve never tried NYX products before because in the UK they are only available online (and in Next stores apparently but I’ve never seen them) but I’ve heard so much about them and their products are so affordable so I decided to go ahead and buy some of their round lipsticks to try out. The swatches on the website weren’t very good so I did some research and watched some youtube swatch videos to try and choose some colours and I ended up with (from left to right) Strawberry Milk, Indian Pink, Spellbound, Haute Melon and Pure Nude.




Review – Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush


So when I heard that Hourglass were releasing an Ambient Lighting Blush I just could not resist getting my hands on one. Combining their ever famous Ambient Lighting Powder with gorgeous pinky hues, who could resist? I sat at my laptop contemplating for ages on which colour to choose as they all looked so beautiful. I ended up going with the colour Dim Infusion as I thought this would be the safest option and would most suit my light complexion. On the skin Dim Infusion is a light coral colour and acts as a blush and highlight in one due to the light reflective particles which the Ambient Lighting Powder is famous for giving the cheeks a radiant glow.
