Review, Swatches | KIKO Blossoming Beauty Romantic Shades of Face & Eyes Palette

Review, Swatches | KIKO Blossoming Beauty Romantic Shades of Face & Eyes Palette

KIKO sure knows how to come out with a pretty collection. The Blossoming Beauty collection has some gorgeous pan designs and I had to have something from this limited edition line. Since I haven’t had the chance to try a KIKO face palette yet, this was the time.

Review, Swatches | Flormar CC Cream Primers in Green and Peach

Review, Swatches | Flormar CC Cream Primers in Green and Peach

Flormar is an Italian makeup brand that has been around for a while but there are not that many reviews on it – at least not in English. And I’ve given in to their 2-for-1 deals way too many times not to contribute to the (currently lacking) online repertoire of European makeup brands reviews.

You could even say that I’m not obsessed with makeup and good deals, I’m just being altruistic. You’d be lying, but you could say it.

Top 7 | Best Coral Blushes (2022)

Top 7 | Best Coral Blushes (2022)

Coral is definitely my favourite colour for blush. It’s probably my favourite makeup item, period. Coral is one of those shades that doesn’t just vary between dark and light, it can also lean more pink or more orange, and if you add different finishes to that, you can end up with quite a lot of variations of blush that are all technically the same colour but are all very different at the same time.

Or so I tell myself.

Brand Review | JUNOCO (Clean 10 Cleansing Balm, Clarifying Cleansing Powder, Cleansing Cookie and 2% Hyaluronic Acid + Peptides Serum)

Brand Review | JUNOCO (Clean 10 Cleansing Balm, Clarifying Cleansing Powder, Cleansing Cookie and 2% Hyaluronic Acid + Peptides Serum)

Junoco is a Californian cosmetics brand that started in 2018 and has made sustainability and simplicity their main missions. They would fall into the spectrum of “clean beauty” brands, and I haven’t been shy about what I think of that term (usually just a marketing expression profiting off of fear mongering) but I have been proven wrong in the past with brands that market themselves as being “clean” while still caring about scientifically proven efficacy and ingredients being beneficial rather than just “natural”.

So when I was contacted by Junoco about trying a few of their products, and did a little research on the brand to learn what they were about and mostly, about their formulas, I got excited.

Review, Swatches | Krash Kosmetics Khamaleon Duochrome Pressed Pigments (Detallito, No More Dates, Saca la Cartera, Ponlo a Su Cuenta)

Review, Swatches | Krash Kosmetics Khamaleon Duochrome Pressed Pigments (Detallito, No More Dates, Saca la Cartera, Ponlo a Su Cuenta)

It’s not usual to see a brand undersell their products. Krash Kosmetics needs to upgrade their marketing: these are not duochromes, these are multichromes. Inexpensive multichromes. It’s the makeup equivalent of finding a forgotten 5$ bill in the pocket of some old jeans.

Review, Swatches | KIKO Ultimate Glow Highlighter in shade 01 Champagne

This is my second KIKO review in a row. There are two more to come. You can tell they are having a sale.

KIKO has recently launched a few new products within their permanent range, and I decided to try the highlighters.

Review, Swatches | KIKO Happy B-Day, Bellezza! Colour Shock Eyeshadows in 02 Energetic Copper and 04 Stylish Taupe

Review, Swatches | KIKO Happy B-Day, Bellezza! Colour Shock Eyeshadows in 02 Energetic Copper and 04 Stylish Taupe

I have yet to make a post about discontinued holy grail makeup products (I haven’t been able yet to overcome my rage when thinking about them), but one that would certainly make the list would be the defunct KIKO Colour Shock Long Lasting eyeshadows. My favourite shade was 03 Golden Earth, the best cream eyeshadow I’ve ever tried.

And now KIKO is re-releasing Colour Shock eyeshadows as part of the limited edition collection that celebrates their 25th birthday, with four new shades. I bought two, I tried them both, and this is the post.

Review, Swatches | Roén Beauty Disco Eye & 75º Warm Eyeshadow Palette

Review, Swatches | Roén Beauty Disco Eye & 75º Warm Eyeshadow Palette

It’s not easy to come up with something no one has done before. I’ve been a makeup fiend for 14 years, I’ve seen just about everything, so finding a new product that’s so different I can’t figure out where to put it in my storage (along with the glitters? eyeshadows? cream bases?) and actually performs well is something to be purchased until I exhaust the entire line celebrated.

Let me introduce you to Roén Beauty and their “glitter for grown-ups”.

Fragrance Review | Clarins Eau Dynamisante

Fragrance Review | Clarins Eau Dynamisante

Clarins calls Eau Dynamisante a “treatment fragrance”. They say it’s invigorating, that it revitalises, hydrates and tones the skin. Suure…

It’s a fragrance. First ingredient alcohol, followed by water, then parfum. It perfumes skin. That’s all it is folks, a fragrance.

But a good one at that.

Review, Swatches | SUQQU 102 Blush Palette & Tone Touch Eyeshadow in 109 Youshizuku

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.
