When preparing for this post, two things surprised me: there are more indie makeup brands than I thought and I have quite a lot of stuff from them; even indie brands discontinue products way too fast.Continue reading “Top 5 | Favourite Indie Makeup Products (2021)”
If I had to give this summer a signature lipstick colour, I would say a bright orange red. Summer makeup collections are typically filled with juicy corals and watermelon reds, but this year in particular a strong orange undertone seems to be dominating the lip scene. I’m all for it.Continue reading “Top 5 | Best Lipsticks for Summer 2021”
Are you lazy? I know I am. It’s a sign of intelligence, according to some article in some magazine that was based on some study by I don’t know who and that I didn’t bother to check the veracity or validity of. I’m good with just getting my news from a headline when it serves me. Part of my laziness.
All of this elaborate paragraph just to make an intro to this post about cream eyeshadows, because they’re perfect if you’re in a hurry or are just, and here’s the connection, lazy. These cream shadows don’t require a tool to be applied (other than your finger for some of them), last all day and they’re all it takes for you to achieve a nice, polished eyeshadow look.Continue reading “Top 7 | Favourite Cream and Liquid Eyeshadows (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.Continue reading “Top Favourite Lilac and Purple Blushes (2021)”
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.Continue reading “Top 5 | Luxury Makeup Products Worth the Splurge”
Spring is coming. The days are longer, the sun is out. Pastels and light, soft colours are of the hour. And I want a peach of that.
Gimme them peach blushes. I want to have resting peach face.Continue reading “Top 5 | Best Peach Blushes (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?).Continue reading “Top 5 | Best Products from KIKO (2021)”
Urban Decay was one of my first makeup loves. Our relationship was solid for almost 10 years, but the last few have been rocky. I felt betrayed by the discontinuation of the Naked palette, my favourite thing about Urban Decay, and the new additions to the permanent line were no longer characteristic of the brand I fell in love with.
That said, I feel like there is some urgency in talking about their good products because everything that’s good is being discontinued and the new launches have been terrible. So before they get rid of everything good (like they did with the loose powder, the highlighters, the blushes), here are the top 5 products currently available that are true winners:Continue reading “Top 5 | Best Products from Urban Decay (2021)”
You know that feeling when you just found something so inconspicuous to be so amazing? Like randomly choosing a wine at the supermarket and finding out it’s the best red you’ve ever had. Like, Emma Stone could never.
This is what these five products are – better than Emma Stone. Surprisingly so.Continue reading “Top 5 Surprisingly Amazing Makeup Products”
