Review, Swatches, Comparisons | Pat McGrath Sublime Skin Highlighter in Lunar Nude (Holiday 2021)

Review, Swatches, Comparisons | Pat McGrath Sublime Skin Highlighter in Lunar Nude (Holiday 2021)

I promise this is the last post I’m making about the Celestial Odyssey collection. Yes, holiday season as come and gone, but Pat McGrath’s collections tend to stick around for a while, and products once sold out come back in stock, so I think this post might still be relevant. Fingers crossed.

Review, Swatches | MAC Petallic Metallic Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Review, Swatches | MAC Petallic Metallic Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Petallic Metallic is going to be released with MAC’s future Spring collection, with new and beautiful packaging, but it has been released before with a MAC Mother’s Day kit. And I’m the girl who, even though she makes no money off of this blog and stopped having any room for new makeup 10 highlighters ago, bought this just to be one of the first ones to publish a review.

Review, Swatches | Hermès Permabrass Highlighter and Silky Powder Blush in Rose Blush

Review, Swatches | Hermès Permabrass Highlighter and Silky Powder Blush in Rose Blush

This past year Hermès expanded their beauty line and released blushes and a single highlighter, Poudre D’Orfèvre Permabrass, that is a neutral toned gold with a stunning Hermès logo embossing and a jaw dropping 98€ price tag. 98 euros for a powder that’s not white and sniffable? The audacity. I had to give it a whirl.

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 4 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Highlighters

Time to shine. Highlighters’ popularity keeps going strong, doesn’t it? They’re not my kryptonite, and yet I find myself with quite a sizeable amount to choose from. Here I selected the four that give me the biggest joy to use.

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 | Tarte Best of Blush Amazonian Clay Cheek Set (shades Fantasy, Captivating, Charmed, Exposed & Delight)

Review, Swatches | Tarte Best of Blush Amazonian Clay Cheek Set (shades Fantasy, Captivating, Charmed, Exposed & Delight)

I’m on a cheek roll, aren’t I? With the Dior blush, and the Sephora little experiment looking one, and the Louboutin palette… After getting all of those during Black Friday sales, it just made sense not to get just one more blush, but a set of 5. Well, 4. One is a highlighter.

I’m insane.

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.

Review, Swatches | MAC 2021 Hypnotizing Holiday Collection – Fortune Teller/ Blizzard Wizard Hyper Real Glow Duo, Right Before Your Eyes Shadeshifter Eyeshadow

Review, Swatches | MAC 2021 Hypnotizing Holiday Collection – Fortune Teller/ Blizzard Wizard Hyper Real Glow Duo, Right Before Your Eyes Shadeshifter Eyeshadow

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.

Review, Swatches | Kiko Precious Rituals Collection: Long Lasting Vegan Bronzer in 01 Honey and Highlighter in 02 Golden Meditation

Review, Swatches | Kiko Precious Rituals Collection: Long Lasting Vegan Bronzer in 01 Honey and Highlighter in 02 Golden Meditation

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.
