Holiday Makeup Haul | MAC, Dior, Tarte, Krash Kosmetics, Pat McGrath, Revolution

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.

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 9 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Powders

Day 9 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Powders

Yes, I have nine favourite powders. I was trying to find the perfect powder for my wedding day and ended up collecting a few favourites that are ideal for multiple different situations. Powder is the last step for complexion makeup, so it’s what makes or breaks how your skin looks, and I guess that’s why I ended up trying so many. Let’s powder up, buttercup.

Day 7 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Blushes

Day 7 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Blushes

Blush is my kryptonite. I own more single blushes than eyeshadow palettes. As you can expect, I can’t reasonably choose just 7 different singular blushes, so I’m bringing you my seven blush formulas that are currently available and not limited edition.

Day 6 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Bronzers

Day 6 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Bronzers

This was the year of the bronzer for me. I got every single one on my wishlist and then some. It truly was a new found love, because bronzer is now part of my routine instead of something I used when I wanted to look more glam. Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s that bronzers are getting better (but I don’t own any bronzer from Maybelline, so it’s definitely not them).

Review, Swatches | Dior The Atelier of Dreams Rouge Blush in 601 (Hologlam)

Review, Swatches | Dior The Atelier of Dreams Rouge Blush in 601 (Hologlam)

Dior’s Hologlam blush is, if I’m not mistaken, part of the US permanent blush line – and it has always been on my wishlist, but it was not available in this part of Europe. Until now. When I saw this item being released here as part of the holiday collection I ran to grab it (ran as in, I gave my index finger a serious workout session clicking on this item when it showed up online on primor.eu).

Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event

Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event

Limitless by Sephora was an online event prepared by Sephora Portugal that was supposed to happen the past 20th of June. You could get access to the event by buying a beauty box filled with goodies for 30€. When the boxes sold out, you could get the ticket for the event alone for 10€. Now, this was the first time something like this was organised by Sephora. Did I mention it was online?

You know what they say, life is what happens when bandwidth allows it.

Makeup Empties – The Good, The Bad and The Tossed

Makeup Empties – The Good, The Bad and The Tossed

I’ve mentioned before I don’t believe in declutters – I have a more medieval approach towards my makeup products: I keep them to serve as penitence for wasted money and to discourage myself from wasting more. So the only way anything leaves my makeup collection is either by getting used up or unmistakably turning bad.

So let’s see what products have managed to leave my Alcatraz of a vanity.

Project 10 Pan – the Powder Purge Update #1

Project 10 Pan – the Powder Purge Update #1

It’s been 9 months since my project pan introduction. Enough time to make a baby – not that that happened. That I know of. What I did make was some very noticeable progress on this project – I actually kept forgetting about the updates, and I’m literally writing this because I want to take the trash out and keep having these empty compacts laying around.

Now let’s move on with a brief description of the progress as I talk about my powders like bad tenants that won’t leave.

Plethora of Powder – A collection review

Plethora of Powder – A collection review

This is like winter: it was coming, but took a damn long time. I took this photo back in October of last year, and I’ve since actually finished some of these powders, so this isn’t my current collection per se, but it’ll still be useful for the mini-review for any of you powder-review-wondering souls.

And due to my current Project 10 Pan, the collection hasn’t grown more than this. Yey me. Yeah…

Well-

Ok, I have gotten one powder foundation since this picture was taken that I justified to myself was ok because it was a foundation, not a powder even though I use it as a powder so it doesn’t count. Technically. Right?

Now for the breakdown (favourites are marked with a ♥):
