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.

Review, Swatches | Guerlain Gold Pearls Météorites (Holiday 2021)

Review, Swatches | Guerlain Gold Pearls Météorites (Holiday 2021)

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.

Top 5 | Luxury Makeup Products Worth the Splurge

Top 5 | Luxury Makeup Products Worth the Splurge

Here I am with another Top Tuesday, coming for your wallets. This time around it’s about splurging. One of the most useful top 5 posts I’ve made, I believe, because if we are talking about luxury, it better be a well curated selection. So I chose the top luxury makeup products I own that perform amazingly and won’t leave you crying over spilled money.

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.

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.

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.

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 ♥):

Sephora Favorites – Nude Look: a review

Sephora Favorites – Nude Look: a review

So Sephora speaks American English. Even in European stores. I’m gonna shut up before saying anything too politically incorrect over the lack of an “u” in the product name and show you what you came here for.

This won’t be an in-depth review as I haven’t tested these products fully, but more of an insight of what you get with this set, and if it’s worth it. The regular price is 32,60 euros but I purchased it with 20% off.
