Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

image1-26.JPGimage1-27.JPG

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I last posted on here, as I’ve been focusing more on Instagram, but I promise I’m going to get back into blogging! Anyway, the other day I finally picked up the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation and I’ve been testing it out, so I thought I’d give you my thoughts and opinions on it. So lets get on with the review :)…

Firstly, I have to say it is very full coverage. If you’re looking for a natural foundation, then this isn’t for you, but personally I love a full glam look. Although it’s full coverage, it feels lightweight on the skin, and it doesn’t look cakey. It covers all my blemishes and redness, and it can be built up in areas that need a tiny bit more coverage. It has a demi-matte finish and it’s oil-free, so it’s perfect for my oily skin, and it lasts all day without getting greasy.

The packaging is beautiful. It comes in a frosted glass bottle with gold detailing, and it just looks so pretty and expensive. It also comes with a pump!!! (which I’m very happy about, if you couldn’t tell). You get 30ml of product, which is a decent amount, so it should last you a long time, seeing as it’s so full coverage.

I got the shade Porcelain, which is described as ‘very fair with neutral to pink undertones’, and I have to say it matches perfectly. It comes in 18 shades, so I think that there’s a shade to suit every skin tone!

It’s easy to blend, and just becomes one with the skin. I usually apply it with my beauty blender, but it applies equally well with a brush. It also photographs beautifully, it makes your skin look smooth, poreless and flawless!

I’d say that the only downside is the price. It retails for £29, which is quite pricey, but I guess it’s kinda reasonable for a high-end foundation, plus it will probably last you a while (as I said before :P). You can purchase it from Debenhams HERE.

Soooo, if you can’t already tell, I’m obsessed. I think that this has become one of my new holy grail foundations! As I said before, this is for those of you who love a full coverage. It is not a ‘natural’, ‘everyday’ foundation, but it would be great if you have problems with blemishes, dark spots or redness. It is great for photography, lasts all day, and there is a decent shade range available. I really recommend you give it a try!

I hope this helped! If you’ve been thinking about picking this up, I think you should!

Have you guys tried this foundation? If so, what did you think?

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks – First Impressions/Review/Swatches

img_5177

Hey guys! So today I did a little shopping in Harrods and I finally got to visit the Huda Beauty stand. I was so excited because I’ve wanted to try her matte liquid lipsticks for a while but I wanted to wait until I could actually swatch them and see the shades in person. I picked up three colours; Flirt, Spice Girl and Vixen. I tried them out for the first time as soon as I got home and I thought I’d share my first impressions with you and show you some swatches so you can see what the colours look like on the lips….

Anyway, today I was really in the mood to write a new blog post, and I created this glittery, warm Christmas party makeup look, so I thought I’d share with you how I did it! I hope you enjoy 🙂

How To: Glitter Lips

image1-15

IMG_1099

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a really easy way to achieve a glittery, sparkly, crazy lip look. I literally used about 4 products in total and I thought it turned out pretty cool. So here’s how to do it:

  1. Apply concealer all over the lips and set with a translucent face powder. This cancels out the natural colour of your lips and creates a clear, blank canvas and also ensures that the liquid lipstick you apply on top applies true to colour and comes out more vibrant.
  2. Apply any dark, cool toned, matte liquid lipstick. I used the NYX Liquid Suede in Stone Fox which is a cool toned grey.
  3. Carve out the lip line with concealer to ensure that they look neat and that the lines are sharp and crisp. Whenever I apply liquid lipstick it goes all over the place so this is the best trick to correct any mistakes.
  4. Apply either a glitter primer or eyelash glue on to the lips with a flat brush and immediately apply the glitter on top with the same brush. I find that it’s easier to work in sections, applying the primer/glue to a small section of the lips followed by the glitter, as this ensures that the glue doesn’t dry before you are able to apply the glitter. I used the DUO Clear Lash Adhesive and the NYX Glitter Brilliants in 06.
  5. Add a rhinestone in the centre of your bottom lip for extra effect 😉 I got them from Claire’s and it looks like I have a piercing! (you don’t have to do this)

And that’s it! I don’t know if I made any sense at all, I felt like I was just rambling, but hopefully you learned something?!

Hey guys, welcome back!

Sorry I haven’t posted in so long, I’m rubbish I know 😦

Anyway, I’m back with another what’s on my face today. Basically I’ve decided to do the 100 Days of makeup challenge on Instagram, which is where you post a different makeup look every day for 100 consecutive days. I feel like it’s really going to challenge me, help my makeup skills improve and enable me to be really creative. So I’m currently on day 4 (follow my Instagram to see the makeup looks I come up with each day) and I decided to create this dramatic, dark, chocolate smokey eye. So if you want to find out how I did it (although I’m not very good at explaining) and to see which products I used, then just keep reading 😉

Kiko Eyeshadows – First Impression/Review

image1-6.JPG

Hey guys! So today I popped into Kiko (just for a quick look), and I came out with 7 new eyeshadows (as usual). Their displays are too tempting; there are so many many products, so many beautiful colours, so many formulas, and everything is so affordable, so how could I not pick something up?

I’ve never really tried Kiko eyeshadows before, so I thought I would give them a go as they are only £5.90. AND GUESS WHAT? Online they are doing a special offer at the moment, and each Inifinity eyshadow is £2.80, can you believe it??? Anyway, I picked up six Infinity Eyeshadows and one Water / Long-Lasting Wet & Dry Eyeshadow. As they were so affordable, I didn’t really know what to expect, and whether they would be good quality or not, so obviously when I got home I had to test them out. So here’s what I thought; my first impressions/review + swatches + colour descriptions.

Hey guys!

So you’ve probably seen the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits ALL OVER Instagram, YouTube and the beauty blogging community. The launch of the two kits, That Glow and Gleam, created such excitement in the makeup world, following the release of Anastasia’s amazing illuminators, which left everyone wanting more. And the thought of getting four highlighters in one kit… isn’t that just heaven?? Anastasia is the queen of brows, and is now also the queen of highlighters. So after all the hype, and after falling in love with the ABH So Hollywood Illuminator, I was sososo excited to get my hands on my very own glow kit. So… are they worth the hype?
