Review, Swatches | KVD Edge of Reality Eyeshadow Palette

Review, Swatches | KVD Edge of Reality Eyeshadow Palette

I got this as a Christmas gift from Sir Fiancé. I think it was part of their holiday releases, but it’s still available for sale. He got me this, and I quote, “because since Kat Von D is no longer part of it, it’s ok to review things from this brand again. And this packaging is 100% recyclable”. I’m in shock at how much attention he pays. Actually, it’s worse: he researches.

I don’t think I’m that attentive. Do I need do step up my game? Do I have to start learning about cars?? I’m not ready to care about motors (and I’m an engineer by training!).

Review | Sisley Super Soin Tinted Sun Care SPF 30 (shade 1-Natural)

Review | Sisley Super Soin Tinted Sun Care SPF 30 (shade 1-Natural)

Is it a sunscreen? Is it a foundation? Most importantly, is it worth it?

I first heard about this product from Michele Wang, when she mentioned in a video that this was great as a foundation because the coverage was pretty good. She has dry skin and loves this, but she mentioned another beauty reviewer with oilier skin also loved it, so it seems to be a product that adapts well to multiple skin types. This sparked my curiosity and stayed in the back of my mind, because my wallet wouldn’t allow it to go to the back of my drawer.

The beauty tool you never knew you needed… the Sponge Case

The beauty tool you never knew you needed… the Sponge Case

I never heard anyone talk about this, so much so that I only found out about these things whilst randomly browsing a beauty website. Am I the last person to find out about this?

Am I the only one who thinks this is useful?

Am I an idiot?

ASOS 24 day Face and Body Advent Calendar 2020

ASOS 24 day Face and Body Advent Calendar 2020

I started my Christmas shopping really early this year. Seriously. I was sooo ahead with gifts for myself. Still, I didn’t manage to snatch this up the first time it showed up (it was September! my bikini was still wet!!). I had to wait for a restock.

LookFantastic 2020 Beauty Chest – better than any beauty advent calendar

LookFantastic 2020 Beauty Chest – better than any beauty advent calendar

I don’t need excuses to buy beauty products, but it’s nice to have them. I’m new to the beauty advent calendar mania (I know, it’s surprising, but they didn’t use to come by easily in Portugal), so this year I’ve been paying more attention. I was already down for the LookFantastic Advent Calendar when this thing dropped – 11 full size products for 85 pounds. Yes, want, mine.

No one talks about… Wet n Wild Mega Jelly Eyeshadow in Dirty Martini (review, swatches)

No one talks about… Wet n Wild Mega Jelly Eyeshadow in Dirty Martini (review, swatches)

This was purchased when I needed to add something more to my cart to get a gift with purchase on some random online order I was doing. How is it not more popular? This should be in top 10 and yearly makeup favorites lists, yet, you can barely find any reviews. Go grab your peanut butter, this jelly is amazing.

No one talks about…” is a series of makeup reviews of products that have very few to no reviews online. This is so that if you’re searching for a bit more information before biting the bullet, you’ll at least have these swatches, photos, and my humble opinion :).

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 7 – The Blush Tag

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 7 – The Blush Tag

This is the final post on this series, and it had to be dedicated to my favourite makeup thing: blush. I love blush. This is an old tag, but very fun to answer nonetheless. Any excuse to stare and swatch my blushes really, I’m happy with.

Makeup Tag Week is a series of posts of my answers to popular makeup tags spanning one week, one tag a day. Why? ‘Cause whenever I see someone else do tags I end up wasting waaaaay too much time trying to answer them for myself, and I thought I would give a better end use to my procrastination excuse.

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 6 – The Limited Edition Makeup Tag

Ahh, how much money do you think the makeup industry was made by tickling our FOMO brain cells? I get excited about a good LE collection – more so than a permanent product launch. I’m certainly part of the problem.
