I haven’t talked about blushes in the last three posts. That’s too long for me. So long that I needed to comeback with a blush palette, not just a single blush.
Seriously, I don’t have a problem.
This isn’t a cry for help.
Oh, and there is an eyeshadow in this review too. Came in the same kit as the palette.

Byredo is a luxury fragrance brand that came out with a makeup line not too long ago. And unlike their generic perfume bottles, the makeup packaging does feel worthy of carrying that “luxury” tag. Their 5 pan eyeshadow palettes look like they are encased inside a golden oyster. That alone made me want to try them.
I love it when a brand gives me an excuse to spend money.

I’m a bit late to this party, I know. This highlighter was released earlier in the year, and is part of the collection made in collaboration with the popular Netflix show, Bridgerton. Just so you know, I didn’t bought it because of the show (watched 1 or 2 episodes – not for me). I’m not that superficial.
I bought it because it was pretty.

After La Mer, La Prairie, and other nicely smelling and heavily user-experience focused brands, there is a new type of luxury skincare in town: the one created by doctors. But the question remains: are they more effective? Scientific? Justified in being more expensive?… and are they made by doctors at all?

I had this post thought out and lined up to go for about 3 months. My idea was to post it before winter ended. Then this blog got neglected for a little while (pregnancy, covid, yadda yadda) and I’m rushing to post this while it’s still technically spring. So enjoy this list of pastel pink blushes to sport on your cheeks for the next two weeks before we get inundated by all the bronze and coral summer blush shades.

There are a lot of hits and misses with Avon products in general, but damn, they can nail down a scent. I’ve mentioned before that Avon used to make my favourite scent of all time, Sweet Honesty, and finding a dupe for that has been quite an (unsuccessful) enterprise. In the meanwhile, I’ve found something different, but very good, and very unique in the realm of modern scents.

Not a lot of makeup releases have excited me lately. I’m not sure if it’s me or if it’s just the beauty industry that is going through a lull. So when I found myself looking for something to get me giddy about this hobby again, I defaulted to my long time favourite thing: blushes.

By the end of last year I was able to come up with a pretty consistent posting schedule. Then it all came to a halt. What happened?
I got pregnant.

Chanel Spring-Summer makeup collection came out and it’s been a while that I’ve been this excited about a blush. By “a while” I mean three weeks and by “excited” I mean I’ve stopped battling my conscience and just decided to buy the damn thing as soon as I saw it.

If you know about Avant, you’re probably a subscriber of a monthly beauty box. I don’t know anyone who has purchased directly from Avant, mainly due to the absurd price, but in case you’re considering getting a beauty box with an Avant product in it and you’re wondering if t’s any good, this post is for you. Avant: the luxury skincare brand that nobody ever paid full price for.
