I don’t get it. When the promotion pictures for this collection came out, “boring”, “not Christmas like”, “looks outdated” were some of the most common comments. Maybe I’ve gone mad, but I think this collection is f*cking adorable.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | MAC 2021 Hypnotizing Holiday Collection – Fortune Teller/ Blizzard Wizard Hyper Real Glow Duo, Right Before Your Eyes Shadeshifter Eyeshadow”
Kiko has been coming out with some aesthetically pleasing products. I’m admitting it – the only reason I indulged in the Precious Rituals collection was because the packaging reminded me of those beautiful Guerlain bronzers that come in a wooden compact. I had no expectations for these two, they really only had to be pretty for me to be satisfied, but guess what, the hot stuff is very nice too.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | Kiko Precious Rituals Collection: Long Lasting Vegan Bronzer in 01 Honey and Highlighter in 02 Golden Meditation”
Guerlain Météorites is the “Home Alone” of makeup – you can always count on seeing it during Christmas. And Guerlain has been launching limited edition versions of their Météorites powder for probably as long as that movie is out. Not all of them catch my attention, because with so many iterations there’s obviously going to be some overlap, and honestly, this year kind of started out that way.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | Guerlain Gold Pearls Météorites (Holiday 2021)”
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.Continue reading “Cult Beauty Haul (Low Buy Year? Never Met Her)”

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.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | Victoria Beckham Smoky Eye Brick in Tweed”
When preparing for this post, two things surprised me: there are more indie makeup brands than I thought and I have quite a lot of stuff from them; even indie brands discontinue products way too fast.Continue reading “Top 5 | Favourite Indie Makeup Products (2021)”
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).Continue reading “Review, Swatches | Clarins Bronzing Compact Frozen Summer 2021 Collection”
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.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer”
If I had to give this summer a signature lipstick colour, I would say a bright orange red. Summer makeup collections are typically filled with juicy corals and watermelon reds, but this year in particular a strong orange undertone seems to be dominating the lip scene. I’m all for it.Continue reading “Top 5 | Best Lipsticks for Summer 2021”
