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).

Review, Swatches | Pat McGrath Celestial Odyssey Holiday 2021 Divine Blush + Glow Trio in Galactic Sun

Review, Swatches | Pat McGrath Celestial Odyssey Holiday 2021 Divine Blush + Glow Trio in Galactic Sun

Surprise surprise, I actually got my Pat McGrath order in time for Christmas! They’re getting better with their shipping times. I order some items from the holiday collection, Celestial Odyssey, a bit before Black Friday and it arrived early December. Thank god. Because obviously, I was in urgent need for blush.

Review, Swatches | Christian Louboutin Blush & Highlighter Trio Palette in So Chick

Review, Swatches | Christian Louboutin Blush & Highlighter Trio Palette in So Chick

Louboutin recently expanded their makeup line by adding eye and face palettes. So since my low-buy turned to sh*t already, I thought, why not? I have a lipstick and two liquid shadows from Louboutin and love all of it, so it felt like it was appropriate for me to try a cheek product of theirs. And “So Chick” it was.

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.

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.

Review, Swatches | By Terry Brightening CC Palette – Sunny Flash

Review, Swatches | By Terry Brightening CC Palette – Sunny Flash

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.

Guerlain Summer 2020 – Brazilian Fizz Météorites and Pearl Highlighter palette (review, swatches)

Guerlain Summer 2020 – Brazilian Fizz Météorites and Pearl Highlighter palette (review, swatches)

I’ve been a fan of Guerlain Météorites for many years, and have considered collecting them in the past – and then I snap back to reality because I’m not that kind of rich (or any kind). Regardless, every once in a while there’s a limited edition of the Météorites that grabs my intention both because of the colour and the packaging, and this was one of those times.

The 19 Makeup Products of 2019

The 19 Makeup Products of 2019

I didn’t do it on purpose, but of all the makeup products that came out in 2019, I got 19. No more, no less. I couldn’t hit that number if I tried. My whole life is a pun.

To be clear, I got 19 makeup products that came out in 2019. I got other products as well, but those have been out of the closet for several years – it’s just that they came into my closet this year.

Shop & Tell: MAC’s 2019 Holiday Collection Face Compacts and Opalescent Powder (with swatches!)

Shop & Tell: MAC’s 2019 Holiday Collection Face Compacts and Opalescent Powder (with swatches!)

It’s been a while since I’ve been so into a holiday collection to want to buy multiple products from it. I actually got these as soon as they came out, in fear they would sell out, but only got around to post about them now. Is this still relevant? Am I still on time?

You have to give me a break people, my kitchen is in shambles. Pre-Christmas construction work. Fun.

Planning a wedding, renovations in our home, on top of the budget closing, objective fulfilling, end-of-the-year season at my job: it’s been stressful. And I’ve been well behaved. Soooo I got myself a few treats. The two face palettes because I couldn’t decide between them and an extra highlighter because it was pretty and shinny.
