Review, Swatches | MAC 2021 Hypnotizing Holiday Collection – Shadeshifter Duochrome Eyeshadows in Ho Ho Hocus, Prrrplexing, Calling Your Bluff

I told I wasn’t done with this collection. After falling in love with the Shadeshifter eyeshadow in Right Before Your Eyes, I was looking for an excuse to get the remaining shadows that piqued my interest, and the Black Friday sale was the perfect opportunity.

Review, Swatches | Pat McGrath Mega Mothership Celestial Odyssey Palette (Holiday 2021)

Review, Swatches | Pat McGrath Mega Mothership Celestial Odyssey Palette (Holiday 2021)

Mother of god, the Mega Mothership palettes are the mother-lode of eyeshadows. It’s a great value for 18 Pat McGrath eyeshadows, and it’s something I’m becoming excited to see every year for holiday season. This year’s palette is currently on sale. It’s no secret I love Celestial Odyssey, since I’ve included it in my 2021 favourites, but read on if you want to see the full review (or just need some more convincing).

Holiday Makeup Haul | MAC, Dior, Tarte, Krash Kosmetics, Pat McGrath, Revolution

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, boxing day, and generally because I’ve been a very good girl – to myself, mostly – these are the reasons I have a decently sized holiday makeup haul to share.

Review, Swatches | Hermès Permabrass Highlighter and Silky Powder Blush in Rose Blush

Review, Swatches | Hermès Permabrass Highlighter and Silky Powder Blush in Rose Blush

This past year Hermès expanded their beauty line and released blushes and a single highlighter, Poudre D’Orfèvre Permabrass, that is a neutral toned gold with a stunning Hermès logo embossing and a jaw dropping 98€ price tag. 98 euros for a powder that’s not white and sniffable? The audacity. I had to give it a whirl.

Day 12 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Products From 2021

Day 12 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Products From 2021

Here we are, Christmas Eve, and the 12 Days of Christmas finale!! I have to confess, this was a daunting task. A post everyday for 12 days in a row talking about so many favourites was really tiring. I wrote the words “smooth”, “pigmented” and “long lasting” so many times that they’ve lost all meaning. But I’ve pushed through and this project is now fully birthed. Just in time for the most famous birthday of them all.

This post will contain the best makeup products that I’ve tried and have come out in 2021 (limited edition or not).

Day 11 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Lip Products

Day 11 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Lip Products

We’re getting close to the finish line, people. This post is all about lips, in all its categories: lipstick, lip liner and lipgloss. Again, I’m mentioning formulas as favourites, not specific colours, because that would be too difficult and I don’t need the stress.

Day 10 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Cream & Liquid Eyeshadows

Day 10 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Cream & Liquid Eyeshadows

Now here’s a category I’ve been exploring a lot this year. I remember a time when if a cream eyeshadow came out that wouldn’t crease, it would be instantly hyped because it was such a rare event. Now we have them in all colours, finishes and formats. This post will be about 10 different formulas, and not specific shades, because I couldn’t be bothered to just select a colour for each.

Day 9 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Powders

Day 9 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Powders

Yes, I have nine favourite powders. I was trying to find the perfect powder for my wedding day and ended up collecting a few favourites that are ideal for multiple different situations. Powder is the last step for complexion makeup, so it’s what makes or breaks how your skin looks, and I guess that’s why I ended up trying so many. Let’s powder up, buttercup.

Day 8 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Palettes

Day 8 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Palettes

When it comes to makeup, eyeshadow palettes is where the fun is at. Multichromes, foiled metallics, pastel mattes, glitters – the variety is endless. Where else, apart from my eyes, would I be able to wear radioactive green? I have a bit of everything in my top favourites, and I didn’t even do it on purpose.

Day 7 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Blushes

Day 7 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Blushes

Blush is my kryptonite. I own more single blushes than eyeshadow palettes. As you can expect, I can’t reasonably choose just 7 different singular blushes, so I’m bringing you my seven blush formulas that are currently available and not limited edition.
