Review, Swatches | Victoria Beckham Smoky Eye Brick in Tweed

Review, Swatches | Victoria Beckham Smoky Eye Brick in Tweed

Victoria Beckham’s makeup line is one of the few influencer/celebrity brands (those seem to be sprouting all the time now) that I was intrigued enough to try out. Look and selection wise, it’s a very grown-up, polished and sophisticated line. You can take the Spice out of the Girl, but you can’t take the Posh.

Review, Swatches | Clarins Bronzing Compact Frozen Summer 2021 Collection

Review, Swatches | Clarins Bronzing Compact Frozen Summer 2021 Collection

Every year, Clarins comes out with a limited edition bronzing compact for their summer collection. I haven’t tried any before, which is actually surprising because I’m a fan of Clarins face powders. 2021 was the year, I guess (and yes, we are all ignoring this was supposed to be a low buy year).

The Maskerade Ball | 5 Quick Reviews of… Sheet Masks!

The Maskerade Ball | 5 Quick Reviews of… Sheet Masks!

Being a beauty box subscriber and a GWP enthusiast, I end up with a lot of masks. Mini masks, full size masks, sample masks, sheet masks. And sometimes I struggle to find enough to say to dedicate a full post to a singular mask. So it makes sense to me to group 5 masks of the same type for a quick round of short reviews.

The theme today are hydrating, calming face sheet masks, from 5 different brands.

Review, Swatches | RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer

Review, Swatches | RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer

I had a Sephora birthday gift card that I could use on only one product worth 30€ or less, so I went online to check what was available for 29,90€. RMS is new to Portuguese Sephora stores and the Buriti bronzer caught my eye. It’s not a new product by any means, but for some reason it’s getting some attention lately from the beauty community. Perfect for my gift card. Only thing is I wouldn’t get free shipping because I didn’t reach the 50€ minimum purchase.

Two bronzers and a foundation later, an order was placed. And here’s the review for the Buriti Bronzer.

Battle of The Stick Foundations – Which one is the Best?

Battle of The Stick Foundations – Which one is the Best?

I’ve always been a loyal purchaser of stick foundations. They save me time in rushed mornings. Which are all of them. Because I wake up with just enough time to arrive only 5 minutes late. So a foundation that doesn’t require me to use an extra tool to apply (like a brush or sponge) goes at the top of the list of makeup I reach for in the 3 minutes I allocate to do my makeup.

Top 7 | Favourite Cream and Liquid Eyeshadows (2021)

Top 7 | Favourite Cream and Liquid Eyeshadows (2021)

Are you lazy? I know I am. It’s a sign of intelligence, according to some article in some magazine that was based on some study by I don’t know who and that I didn’t bother to check the veracity or validity of. I’m good with just getting my news from a headline when it serves me. Part of my laziness.

All of this elaborate paragraph just to make an intro to this post about cream eyeshadows, because they’re perfect if you’re in a hurry or are just, and here’s the connection, lazy. These cream shadows don’t require a tool to be applied (other than your finger for some of them), last all day and they’re all it takes for you to achieve a nice, polished eyeshadow look.

Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event

Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event

Limitless by Sephora was an online event prepared by Sephora Portugal that was supposed to happen the past 20th of June. You could get access to the event by buying a beauty box filled with goodies for 30€. When the boxes sold out, you could get the ticket for the event alone for 10€. Now, this was the first time something like this was organised by Sephora. Did I mention it was online?

You know what they say, life is what happens when bandwidth allows it.
