Review, Swatches | KIKO Dolce Diva Powder Foundation SPF 50 in 03 Light Beige

Review, Swatches | KIKO Dolce Diva Powder Foundation SPF 50 in 03 Light Beige

It’s been a while since I last tried KIKO’s base makeup. I’m not big on second chances, and my previous experience was not amazing, but KIKO seems to have matured in that department, so why not? I decided to let it show me if it truly changed, and so I set up a date with their Dolce Diva Powder Foundation in the shade Light Beige.

Review, Swatches, Comparisons | Pat McGrath Sublime Skin Highlighter in Lunar Nude (Holiday 2021)

Review, Swatches, Comparisons | Pat McGrath Sublime Skin Highlighter in Lunar Nude (Holiday 2021)

I promise this is the last post I’m making about the Celestial Odyssey collection. Yes, holiday season as come and gone, but Pat McGrath’s collections tend to stick around for a while, and products once sold out come back in stock, so I think this post might still be relevant. Fingers crossed.

Review, Swatches | MAC Viva Glam Keith Haring Collection (Canal Blue, Red Haring, St. Marks Yellow)

Review, Swatches | MAC Viva Glam Keith Haring Collection (Canal Blue, Red Haring, St. Marks Yellow)

As I’ve mentioned in my 2021 favourites, I got the entire new Viva Glam lipstick collection from MAC. I had every reason to: it is in collaboration with an iconic artist, the design and colour story is unique and collectible, and I’m a master at delegating my problem with lack of makeup storage for future me.

Review, Swatches | MAC Petallic Metallic Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Review, Swatches | MAC Petallic Metallic Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Petallic Metallic is going to be released with MAC’s future Spring collection, with new and beautiful packaging, but it has been released before with a MAC Mother’s Day kit. And I’m the girl who, even though she makes no money off of this blog and stopped having any room for new makeup 10 highlighters ago, bought this just to be one of the first ones to publish a review.

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

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

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.
