Cult Beauty Haul (Low Buy Year? Never Met Her)

Cult Beauty Haul (Low Buy Year? Never Met Her)

So, remember when I said I wouldn’t get the Unsung Heroes Beauty Bag? Well, I didn’t. You thought I did, didn’t you? You think I’m that weak, no self control, irresponsible person that gives in to her every beauty urges, don’t you? Well, joke’s on you. I didn’t get it.

My husband got it for me.

Brand Review | U Beauty (The Super Smart Hydrator, Resurfacing Compound)

Brand Review | U Beauty (The Super Smart Hydrator, Resurfacing Compound)

U Beauty’s philosophy revolves around streamlining and reducing the amount of skincare products one has to use day to day. It’s meant to reduce a 12 step routine into a 2 step one, I guess, because they only make 2 products for the face so far, and the price for both of those is enough to purchase a 12 step routine, two times over. At least.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Marchesa Notte

A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Marchesa Notte

It’s been a while since I lasted posted about an outfit. Yes, this used to be a beauty and style blog. But the type of work I do can be done from home, and with the streets closed and the events cancelled, one can never find an occasion to strut their stuff – and I got a lot of new stuff to strut during the quarantine.

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.
