Top Favourite Lilac and Purple Blushes (2021)

Top Favourite Lilac and Purple Blushes (2021)

Makeup trends come and go, I know. But with such a saturated industry it was to be expected that here and there a few unique shades of blush would make it to the permanent line of a handful of cosmetic brands, right?! And I think there was a moment when this was true. Newly launched blush lines would have their purple, orange or bright red pop of colour. And it’s 2021 and nearly all have been discontinued.

I could rant about it until I get purple in the face, but instead I’m going to show you some (still available!) options for you to get purple in your face.

Top 5 | Best Products from KIKO (2021)

Top 5 | Best Products from KIKO (2021)

As of today, my most viewed post is a review of Kiko’s Sunshine Tuscan Blushes. I guess I understand why, since Kiko is one of those brands that has a huge line and frequently comes out with limited edition collections, yet there aren’t that many reviews out there.

They also have really good sales and are known for some high end dupes. But they tend to discontinue a lot of their core products, and I have tried more than one dud. So here are my recommendations for Kiko permanent collection products if you want to try the brand, (or just want to enlarge your collection and are checking what else to get to reach the free shipping value, like I usually do. Can’t be having those makeup drawers with any extra room, right?).

No one talks about… Wet n Wild Mega Jelly Eyeshadow in Dirty Martini (review, swatches)

No one talks about… Wet n Wild Mega Jelly Eyeshadow in Dirty Martini (review, swatches)

This was purchased when I needed to add something more to my cart to get a gift with purchase on some random online order I was doing. How is it not more popular? This should be in top 10 and yearly makeup favorites lists, yet, you can barely find any reviews. Go grab your peanut butter, this jelly is amazing.

No one talks about…” is a series of makeup reviews of products that have very few to no reviews online. This is so that if you’re searching for a bit more information before biting the bullet, you’ll at least have these swatches, photos, and my humble opinion :).

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 7 – The Blush Tag

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 7 – The Blush Tag

This is the final post on this series, and it had to be dedicated to my favourite makeup thing: blush. I love blush. This is an old tag, but very fun to answer nonetheless. Any excuse to stare and swatch my blushes really, I’m happy with.

Makeup Tag Week is a series of posts of my answers to popular makeup tags spanning one week, one tag a day. Why? ‘Cause whenever I see someone else do tags I end up wasting waaaaay too much time trying to answer them for myself, and I thought I would give a better end use to my procrastination excuse.

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 5 – All About My Palettes Tag

For this post I considered a palette something with 5 or more shades, to make my life easier. So quads don’t count. And it was enough trouble as is was to chose some of these answers, so commend me for my effort, I deserve it.

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 3 – Drugstore Makeup Tag

After two tags in a row dedicated to wallet torturing products, it’s time for the drugstore tag. I have seen it before in Youtube videos, but it was The Book and the Beauty‘s take on it that reminded me of including in it this week.

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 1 – If I Had 1000$ to Spend at Sephora

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 1 – If I Had 1000$ to Spend at Sephora

If I had 1000$ to spend on whatever I wanted, I would probably buy shoes – but Sephora doesn’t sell those, so makeup it is. I’ll limit myself to the portuguese Sephora website, and I’ll also stick with the 1000$, that is about 841 euros.

You’ll be surprised at the amount of stuff I would get.

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.
