I saw the Terrazzo blushes for sale on the Sephora website and went out to search for swatches and reviews. Can’t seem to find them anywhere. For any shade. So of course, I had a beauty duty to purchase at least one and try and fill this beauty-sphere gap. So here we are.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | Sephora Colorful Terrazzo Blush in Chill in the Air Nº45”
Limitless by Sephora was an online event prepared by Sephora Portugal that was supposed to happen the past 20th of June. You could get access to the event by buying a beauty box filled with goodies for 30€. When the boxes sold out, you could get the ticket for the event alone for 10€. Now, this was the first time something like this was organised by Sephora. Did I mention it was online?
You know what they say, life is what happens when bandwidth allows it.Continue reading “Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event”
A retrospective analysis of skincare products I used up over the past few months: some staples, some discontinued treasures, and a few bad choices. And whether or not I will/can repurchase.Continue reading “Skincare Empties – Tried, tested… but trusted?”
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.Continue reading “Summer Makeup Favourites (2020)”
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.Continue reading “Sephora Favorites – Nude Look: a review”
Bronzer was, for a long time, my least favourite makeup item. I never really understood how to use it because people kept giving contradictory instructions: “apply to the higher points of the face, where the sun naturally hits you”, they say, while demonstrating that you should apply on the temples, under the cheekbone and on the jawline. WTF?
I’m sorry, but my temples are not a high point of the face. That would be the forehead, bridge and tip of the nose, and cheekbone. That’s what gets sunburned.
Words aside, the temple-cheekbone-jawline thing is actually the way to go, I find. Once I made amends with the technique and managed to get myself flatteringly tanned, the collection grew. And here we are.
Like in the last collection post, the ones marked with a ♥ are my most used favourites.Continue reading “Bronzer Bonanza – 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”
