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.Continue reading “Day 9 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Powders”
Last year, before the pandemic derailed everything, I started a series called Makeup Log, where I posted my daily makeup looks in order to keep a record of different product combinations, so that I could find the perfect makeup look for my wedding day. Because I would be doing it myself.
With over a year of minimal makeup wear and a wedding date set to May, I should have started practicing around March. At least. But I’m a procrastinator first and a bride second, so two weeks before the date felt like enough time to me. Two days before was when I actually started.Continue reading “My Wedding Makeup”
Do you remember this post? Yeah me neither.
In my defence, this is over 2 months’ worth of purchases. Since I’ve been
pretending trying to cut back on my makeup and skincare purchases, I’ve really gotten into haircare and fragrance. A ridiculous transition, I know, since I was trying to save on beauty spending, but alas, it still happened, and here we are.
I started my Christmas shopping really early this year. Seriously. I was sooo ahead with gifts for myself. Still, I didn’t manage to snatch this up the first time it showed up (it was September! my bikini was still wet!!). I had to wait for a restock.Continue reading “ASOS 24 day Face and Body Advent Calendar 2020”
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.Continue reading “Project 10 Pan – the Powder Purge Update #1”
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…
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 ♥):Continue reading “Plethora of Powder – A collection review”
Collection posts are fun. At least I love to read them. It’s like someone giving a tour of their candy shop. And you go along and think “I want that. And that. And that one. I want that…”.
I’ll give a short description/overview of each product here. If you have questions about a specific one or even would like a more in-depth review, feel free to ask in the comments. The ones marked with a ♥ are my most used favourites.Continue reading “Glow Galore – a highlighter collection review”
I’m not one to visit shopping centers while travelling. Most brands are international, and the products and lines are the same everywhere. However, being my second time around in London, I felt I had enough time to complete the check list of must go-to places and do a little shopping.Continue reading “Shop & Tell: a Harrods makeup haul”
