Top 5 | Best Products from KIKO (2021)

As of today, my most viewed post is a review of Kiko’s Sunshine Tuscan Blushes. I guess I understand why, since Kiko is one of those brands that has a huge line and frequently comes out with limited edition collections, yet there aren’t that many reviews out there.

They also have really good sales and are known for some high end dupes. But they tend to discontinue a lot of their core products, and I have tried more than one dud. So here are my recommendations for Kiko permanent collection products if you want to try the brand, (or just want to enlarge your collection and are checking what else to get to reach the free shipping value, like I usually do. Can’t be having those makeup drawers with any extra room, right?).

Review, Swatches | Guerlain Pink Pearl Météorites (Spring 2021)

Review, Swatches | Guerlain Pink Pearl Météorites (Spring 2021)

After getting everything and anything that has ever been on my beauty wish list the past year, this year I’ve been trying to curb my spending, specially when it comes to makeup. I’ve been pretty successful thus far. This is the first makeup item I got in 2021, so you know it has to be something special.

It combines two of my favourite things: Guerlain’s Météorites and blush.

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.

Top 5 Surprisingly Amazing Makeup Products

You know that feeling when you just found something so inconspicuous to be so amazing? Like randomly choosing a wine at the supermarket and finding out it’s the best red you’ve ever had. Like, Emma Stone could never.

This is what these five products are – better than Emma Stone. Surprisingly so.

Selfridges Beauty Sales Haul – Ltd. edition MAC, Huda Beauty, It Cosmetics

I saw Selfridges’ sales being announced somewhere about a month ago and decided to take a peek. Just a peek. Multiple orders later, I give you this (surprisingly unsponsored) post.

Summer Makeup Favourites (2020)

Summer Makeup Favourites (2020)

Well, I’m still working from home, and I can’t really go anywhere without constantly giving my nose, mouth and chin a mini-sauna, courtesy of a surgical mask, so I’ve become less and less interested in outfits and clothes, and more and more into makeup. I can still look cute in my Zoom meetings, full glam on the face and pyjamas on my legs.

Bobbi Brown Summer Glow Collection 2020 – Bronzing Powder Duo (review, swatches)

Bobbi Brown Summer Glow Collection 2020 – Bronzing Powder Duo (review, swatches)

I went ham on this year’s summer makeup collections. I actually rarely buy from Bobbi Brown, but the logical, impulse-controlling side of my brain decided to go on vacation this quarantine period and I couldn’t reach it for the life of me. So I ended up with more new makeup than I ever planned.

Kiko Tuscan Sunshine Blushes: 01 Florence Dreams and 02 Tuscan Iris (review, swatches)

Kiko Tuscan Sunshine Blushes: 01 Florence Dreams and 02 Tuscan Iris (review, swatches)

Kiko is currently having a sale on their website and these blushes are 50% off. Plus, even if they get out of stock sometimes they come back – I bought the Tuscan Iris shade two months ago when the collection released and Florence Dreams (the lightest one) was sold out, and now it’s back in stock and for half price.

By Terry Brightening CC Palette – Sunny Flash (review, swatches)

By Terry Brightening CC Palette – Sunny Flash (review, swatches)

Is it just me or does every summer makeup collection this year has had this metallic, rose gold/millennial pink packaging? Not a complaint, just an observation. The By Terry packaging knocks it out of the park and I confess that was the main reason I felt compelled to get this palette.
