Nothing says “Lethal” like flowers and pearls – Makeup look…

Well, maybe flowers and pearls are not the things that screams “Lethal” the most, but I picked up some eyeshadows from Lethal Cosmetics a little while ago and the blue shade “Ascension” and the matte yellow “Relapse” inspired me to do this look. An edgy brand like this does spark creativity!

IMG_20180629_111124_675.jpg

I also wanted to play more around with my Revolution Pro Supreme Dip Liner because it is actually a good white liquid liner! So the end result is this!

IMG_20180707_174514_283.jpg

  • Lethal Cosmetics Single Pan Eyeshadows – Ascension, Calcination, Relapse, Defiance, Arsenic.
  • Revolution Pro Supreme Dip Liner . White.
  • Kiko Kajal Khôl Pencil – 109 (matte blue).
  • Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil – 04 Turquoise (brows).
  • Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara.
  • House Of Lashes – Iconic Lights.

I am impressed with how these shadows work, and I am always happy to spend my money on smaller indie brands, so if you are like me then I recommend checking out Lethal Cosmetics Home Page and take a look at their eyeshadows.

July 2018 Makeup Favorites…Yes, I am late to the party!

This has been the month of face products. I got so much new fun stuff and I have been testing a lot. I have been very lucky with my purchases lately because so so many of the items have been hits and I can’t wait to share them!

Two lip products really stood out to me this month, and I just kept reaching for these over and over again. Both of them are older items I’ve had for a while and I just decided to put them in my monthly makeup bag, and for the month of July these two were almost the only lippies I used at work. The Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss is so comfy and almost like a balm. It feels really hydrating, the color is super for everyday wear, and it smells good (but not intense). The Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Hepburn Honey is also really good. I do enjoy her lipstick formula. It easily wears for a couple of hours and feels very comfy on the lips. It is also so easy to reapply that I don’t even need a mirror. So really good if you need to to touch-ups on the go like I have to at work.

The eyeshadows are all from Looxie Beauty. The formula of these three are so rich, smooth, pigmented and metallic. Every time I used them I just kept getting surprised by how rich and buttery they are. And the shades are so gorgeous as well. These three shades are Amber, Bohemian and Bubbly. Highly recommend all these shades!

I guess we all tried that Physicians Formula butter bronzer, and so many of us love it, but I got curious about their Butter Blush in “Rosy Pink” and Butter Highlighter in “Pearl”. Well, I guess you know what I feel about then since they are here. The blush is not too pigmented and I have to build it up just a little bit, but the color is so nice and it last incredibly long on my skin! The highlighter is gorgeous too. And both of them smell like a tropical vacation.

The L’Oreal Life’s A Peach Blush in the shade “Peach Addict” is my first L’Oreal blush ever actually, but I heard good things about it and, well, I am weak. That’s a good thing though because this is a gorgeous product. Nice summery color, fool-proof easy to apply and you know, just a good blush!

Makeup Revolution highlighters have been a bit hit or miss for me. But this Revolution Pro Supreme Highlighter Trio in “Metal” is for sure a hit. Metallic intense glow all the way. No glitter, just an intense metallic sheen. I know they have this little palette in a few other shades and I want them all now! And yes, the price is unbeatable too!

NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer “Vanilla” was also a big hit. It just looks flawless underneath the eyes and must be one of the better concealers I’ve tried in a long time.

IMG_20180715_145952_423.jpg

These guys must be the perfect pair for a gorgeous glow or what? They are, really!

The Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lightning Powder in “Brilliant Strobe Light” is my first Hourglass product ever actually. But, to put it one way I got a blush and a bronzer heading my way because this product is stunning and I want to know what else Hourglass can offer. This is like a glowy setting powder, or you can use it as a very subtle highlighter.

The Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter is a weird one. It is kind of a primer or a highlighter in one. It blurs out the skin and gives such a gorgeous natural glow. I really recommend using this alone with just some concealer if you don’t really need much coverage. The blurring effect and the glow makes your skin look perfected and dewy and just flawless. If you do have redness or spots it won’t cover it a bit, but luckily it also works perfectly as a primer or as a base for powder highlighter.

IMG_20180808_093800_420.jpg

Lastly, the Colourpop No filter Setting Powder “Translucent” is my final favorite this month. Who does not like a cheap setting powder that works. The powder is very finely milled and works well for under the eyes as well as an all over setting powder. The jar is tiny and great for travel as well. Out of the no filter line this one is the product that worked best for me!

What is your favorites for this month? Do we have any favorites in common? Or maybe something that worked really well for me does not for you? Leave a comment and let us know!

By the way, I always love reading these favorites post so please don’t be shy and drop a link in the comment if you made a post yourself. I would love to read it!

Colourpop Perception Palette – Review & Swatches!

Perception was a palette I was drawn to immediately. Just a well composed palette with plenty of both neutrals and colors. Something you can do anything with. I don’t know who Shayla is (Should I? Have I’ve been living under a rock?). But usually I find the Colourpop collabs to be quite good, so I jumped into it.

The design of the palette is beautiful with black, purple and gold pattern. It is a bigger sized palette with 16 shades, but the shades are the same size as their regular 12-pan palettes. The palette also hold a mirror of decent size, you could easily do your makeup with it, so it has a bit of weight to it. Packaging is still slim and easy to store, but the slightly bigger size makes it a bit less practical to throw in your travel makeup bag compared to the smaller 12-pans which are a perfect size for traveling in my opinion. Does not really matter to me, I don’t travel that much and when I do I have plenty of palettes to choose from.

When you open the palette the obvious reason why I had to pick this palette up appears. The shades range is so beautiful! And there are colors! Not only a neutral palette with a pop of color, but there is a nice selection of both neutrals and colorful options.

There is a nice selection of nice gold, taupe and copper metallic shades that all work very well for more neutral looks. But, don’t be fool. they are intense metallics and can for sure add quite some drama if you want. If you feel like being more daring in your color choices you got metallic green. blue, pink and even a brown-teal duochrome. The selection has such a nice variety of colors that you really get a lot of choices and a bunch of possible looks. One of the best things about this palette is that you got so many different color choices.

20180526675024809.jpg

But the most important thing, how is the quality? As always the metallics are impeccable. Colourpop really know how to make rich, pigmented and smooth as butter metallic shades. With 9 out of 16 shades being this formula you already know this is a good quality palette. The Colourpop mattes are also very good, and they are no exception in this palette. There are 4 mattes in total. Personally I would love to see at least one more. I think if this palette lacks one thing it is a medium or dark cool-toned or neutral black to pair with the green, blue and duochrome because in my opinion those very warm mattes dont go that well with those shades.

IMG_20180525_113105_052.jpg

Then the two last shades are in my least favorite formula. The matte base with glitter. Stallion is a dark navy matte blue with flecks of blue glitter, and Shade is a plum matte with pink glitter. Even though I have to admit I was pleased with how Stallion looked on the eyes, I am still not a fan of this formula and would prefer them to be mattes or metallics instead. I guess that only 2 out of 16 shades were not complete hits for me overall is not bad.

Would I recommend it? Absolutely! My favorite thing about this palette is still that there are so many different colors in it. Also, the fact that there is a lot of shades in that beautiful metallic formula does not hurt either. So once again Colourpop released a hit!

Do you have this palette? What are your opinions?

Makeup Hauls of July 2018 – What Did I get?

I got a lot! Much of it was ordered in the month of June, it just takes forever in shipping to get here. But I haven’t been completely innocent in July either, so I have drawer full of goodies I need to test out and review for you. And I am so excited because I really believe I picked up a few gems here and there. So let’s get to it!

IMG_20180707_174207_602.jpg

First some skincare items from The Ordinary. I become more and more a fan of this brand the more I try it. Good quality skincare for a wallet friendly price. I picked up the Lactic Acid 10% + HA because I already tried this, enjoyed it, and needed a repurchase because I am almost out. I am also always in need of a good skin moisturizer and decided Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA cream would be suitable to test out. I also picked up two of the Caffeine Solution 5 % + EGCG eye serum. One to keep in my bathroom for my bedtime routine, and one to keep at work for my morning routine (I run to work every morning and get ready there). Finally I also got the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + BA as a hydrating booster. Always feels good to stock up on some skincare!

IMG_20180707_174246_707.jpg

All these goodies are from BeautyBay. You probably know by now that I collect the Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palettes and I would like to keep them all one day. I am slowly working my way to my goal and I usually pick up one palette each month lately. This month I got the Saharan, and looks how pretty it is! I picked up the two shades from the Jeffree Star Summer collection that tempted me the most namely “Cherry Wet” and “Coral Fixation”. The MakeupGeek single shadows are “Cocoa Bear” and “Flamethrower”. I love MakeupGeek shadows and like to pick up a shade here and there-

IMG_20180707_174408_092.jpg

These Milani Rose Powder Blushes has been around forever, and have probably been on my wish list for just as long. Finally I got around to it. This is the shade “Coral Cove”.

IMG_20180707_174312_828.jpg

This Becca Gradient Sunlit Bronzer in the shade “Sunrise Wave” I’ve heard so many good things about. And I do love a glowy bronzer so I decided to give this a go. Besides I want to try more Becca products after falling in love with their Apres Skis Face Palette. So I am happy to add this to my collection!

IMG_20180801_202108_457.jpg

For the first time ever I decided to dive into Violet Voss eyeshadows with the Hashtag palette. So many pretty colors, so I can’t wait!

IMG_20180707_163641_026.jpg

I am also a big fan of Zoeva and I think the brand is so under rated. I promised myself to pick up more of their face trios because the two I already have are very good. So this small pencil brush and the Sweet Glamour Blush Palette are now a part of my collection.

IMG_20180707_163502_004.jpg

Speaking of Jeffree Star, I also got the Blood Sugar Palette (finally!). Look at all the pretty reds! And the packaging is so retro cool!

IMG_20180707_163617_754.jpg

And since I was already on the Zoeva website it didn’t hurt to pick up the Artisto Eyeshadow Palette and Artisto Blush Palette. I think these look so stunning, and the Zoeva palettes are so slim and handy to collect!

IMG_20180710_181433_154.jpg

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick have been my favorite liquid lipstick formula for lipstick that dry down completely ever since I picked up my first one around a year ago. I wanted to pick up some of his classic nude shades for everyday wear and got “Celebrity Skin” and “Androgyny”.

IMG_20180712_193016_112.jpg

I also added some more Smashbox items to my collection. This brand is really growing on me. From having just a few products from the brand a while ago I have now tried quite a few different things that I really like. I had to get one of the rose highlighters from the Smashbox X Vlada collection. I had my eye on the gold one by this was the only one I could find in store where I live. So the “Prismatic Petal” it is! Very beautiful looking indeed!

I also love love love the Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipsticks. They are a serious competitor to the JS ones! So I picked up another shade called “Bawse”. A beautiful red!

The Smashbox Cali Contour was also too pretty to pass on. It looks really good for my skin tone because I think I will get use out of every shade in this palette. And I quite like face palettes now (I didn’t use to before) but I don’t have too many so it actually feels good to get some more face palette options.

IMG_20180712_193155_126.jpg

God some essential items too!

The BOMB Cosmetics Strawberry Fields Body Polish I picked up because I had a body scrub from them in another scent that I really really enjoyed! So I was tempted to pick up some more products from them and ended up with this. Would you like to read a review about them?

The Dove Go Fresh Deodorant and Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical are just standard items. We all need deodorants and dry shampoo right?

IMG_20180712_193234_881.jpg

One of my favorites things I picked up this month! The Jeffree Star Thirsty palette. Did not have any time to play with this yet, but I did some swathes and those shades in the middle row swatch incredible. Can’t wait to wear them! Also, does not this palette just scream summer?

IMG_20180801_201002_600.jpg

I didn’t need any more blushes, especially since I am working and working on hitting pan on one that is never ending. But Tarte had free international shipping and I am weak. Still very happy to add “Blush Bliss Blush Palette” to my collection. Love Tarte blushes anyways!

IMG_20180801_201736_338.jpg

As usual I added the Liveglam Kiss Me Liquid Lipsticks for July t my collection. I already have a review out if you want to have a read.

IMG_20180801_201919_799.jpg

No month without a Colourpop order right? But who doesn’t love cheap and good. I got the Sol and Mar eyeshadow palettes from their summer collection, together with all the three Ultra Blotted Lips “Vitamin C”, “Soda Pop” and “Ocean Ave”. The blotted lipstick formula is one of my favorites from Colourpop! They looks so flattering and very wearable.

IMG_20180801_202012_898.jpg

Also the MorpheMe Brush Subscription arrived, but I exchanged one of the brushed for an eye brush. They send out waaaaay to many contour brushes, and I never use those, but luckily you can exchange them.

I also got the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in “Whisper of Gilt” and  MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in “Nuanced”. To me MAC will always be this classic iconic brand and I am always happy to collect more of their pieces.

IMG_20180801_201844_937.jpg

I did not get all these MAC eyeshadows, but I finally got around to pick up the extra empty palettes and inserts to start organizing and build up my collection a bit. I used to just keep them in two full palettes without inserts but now they are more sorted and looks more tidy. I am thinking about just picking up a new shade here and there and in the end have 60 single pan shades. A bit to go still.

IMG_20180801_202205_545.jpg

I liked the first Milani Powder Blush so much that I picked up another shade. This time  in “Blossomtime Rose”. They are just soo pretty!

And Nabla Cosmetics is a band I really really like., so when they came out with cream highlighter and blush in a stick form I had to pick them up. Perfect for summer! The shades are “Surreal” and “Maybe Baby”.

IMG_20180801_202229_922.jpg

The Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipsticks are in the shade “Stone” and “Talk is Chic”. I only had one of their lipsticks form before “Berry Me 2” but I wanted to test out the formula properly.

The Makeupgeek eyeshadows are “Jester” and “Wistera”. Again, I am always happy to add some more single pans form Makeupgeek to my collection because they are still some of my favorites!

IMG_20180801_202032_540.jpg

The only thing I have ever tried form Inglot is their single pan shadows, but the packaging and colors of the Inglot X Jennifer Lopez collection sucked me in. So two lipstick shades in the colors “Hibiscus” and “Besame”, and the Illuminator Face Eyes Body in “Livin The Highlight” (Yes, I got a loose powder highlight!)

DSC_1048.JPG

Then I walked by a L’Oreal sale and this happened! I never intended to pick up the Cherry My Cheri palette, but the discount was very favorable. the Back To Bronze I’ve heard so many good things about, and I swatched the La Vie En Glow highlighter palette and found that the first shade was unique enough to my collection to pick it up. Also I always need a mascara and picked the “Volume Million Lashes”, unfortunately I came home only to discover that it was brown, and you are not allowed to return opened makeup here so I guess I am stuck with eyelashes aka 90’s style for a while. Well, at least I have been there before! It was all at a good discount so I got a lot for my money anyway.

DSC_0986.JPG

It was not the only things I picked up from L’Oreal. I snagged thid Life’s A Peach Highlighter and I have been loving it! I also got the Glow Mon Amour Liquid Highlighter. The Lipstick is from H&M own makeup line in the shade “Cream Chestnut”. These lipsticks are so underrated!

IMG_20180715_145952_423.jpg

My final purchases made was these splurge items! The hourglass Strobe Lighting Powder in “Brilliant Strobe Light”, and Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter. I better be glowing after this (and I am, they are both tested and loved!).

As you can tell my test out drawer is now filled up, and I have so so much to test, try, play with and review. Luckily I will have plenty of time to do so in August, and I am excited to share some looks and reviews of these things sometime soon!

Did you pick up anything fun in July? Any purchase plant for August?

XOXO

Perception Shayla X Colourpop – 7 Makeup Looks!

If you know me a bit you would already know that I threw myself over the Shayla X Colourpop as soon as it was released. I am not joking. 5 minutes after it was live on the website I had already finished my order. I think I am still frightened from a year back when newly released palettes used to sell out in less than half an hour so when I really want something I tend to rush it.

No reason to anymore though. I mean, the palette did sell out, but I could have been breathing between the release and the order without any problem.

Anyway, weeks later (no joke, that’s how slow shipping is here) I finally got it. So I started playing with all those delicious fun shades!

I am sorry the pictures are not as clear. I destroyed my phone that I usually use to take pictures with, and had to use a replacement for these photos.

My Holy Grail Body Lotion – Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butters!

If you have been reading my blog a bit you have definitely seen these little jars of body butter pop up here and there. Especially in my empties post. I tend to go through these like crazy. I figured they deserved their very own post.

I discovered this brand back in 2011 i think. I don#t remember how I found them, but I had a thing for indie skincare and soaps and all that stuff, and Haus of Gloi intrigued me and I picked up a few of their product like their bubbly scrub, skin emulsion and pumpkin butters.

IMG_20180710_182103_431.jpg

I remember one of the scents I picked out on my first order was “Satyr” a rich, sweet blood orange and vanilla scent. That scent has stayed with me all these years ever since. I don’t use it every day, but I make sure to ALWAYS have one Satyr standing ready in my bathroom shelve. Right now it stands there together with around 20 other scents.

As you probably know by now, the Pumpkin Butters are a big big hit. And for good reason! The scent put a side for a while, the product itself is just as wonderful as the fragrances. It is something between a thick body butter and a lotion. Not as dense as say The Body Shop body butters, but much richer than your average lotion. It gives plenty of moisture that I feel lasts for a long time. Some thinner lotions I feel almost disappear into my skin, but these Pumpkin butters leave my skin feeling moisturized! They also sink into the skin without feeling tacking or leaving any kind of residue on the skin. It feels like a luxury product but the prize is only 10$.

IMG_20180710_182237_489.jpg

They also come in two different sizes. One 2 Oz container if you want to test out a fragrance, or a 6 Oz one if you want the full size. The small size will last me around 5 full applications, so it is a nice size to test out. They come in a small plastic jar. Nothing fancy about the jar. The printed labels used to be very detailed and beautiful with a pattern that would match the scent description but for some reason the design has changed. I am a bit bummed about that because the new design, although clean and simple looking, makes them less unique and more cheap looking. I wish the old labels with designs good as art would come back.

Their selection of fragrance is also a whole other level. First, their scents are so unique that you won’t find anything like that in this price class. They smell like they are a well composed selection of proper fragrance and not just those synthetic cheap scents you often find. Those cheap synthetic scents can also be good, but you know, this is just next level. Not only do they feel luxurious, they smell expensive as well!

Off Course every scent is not for every one but their selection is so large I am absolutely sure you can find something to suit your taste. And if you are not into scents they do have a scent free version as well.

IMG_20180710_182133_365.jpg

They do have a fun way of releasing scents. All year round you can order from their general catalogue which holds a nice selection of scents avaliable all year round, like my beloved Satyr scent! They also do release seasonal scents which is so much fun. Over the years I have learned what scents to expect in their different releases so it has become something to look forward to. To get excited about ordering “Insalata Nocturna” and “Zazz” in summer, and look forward to smell “Apple Milk” and “Ghost Puffs” again in fall. The only sad thing is that their seasonal scents seem to sell out so so quickly and I can’t always get a hold of the scents I want. And then there is a whole year of waiting. Luckily they have a lot of delicious smelling stuff in their general catalogue, and they always have some exciting seasonal releases as well.

They do smell fairly strong and the scent lingers on your skin for hours and hours. That means they can be hard to wear together with your regular perfumes, but no need to worry, they have perfume oils and hair oils matching the pumpkin butter scents if you need to wear perfume in addition.

If you are looking for another body lotion to try you should have a look at the Haus Of Gloi website to see if you find a scent you may like, because I am absolutely sure you will love these!

Throwback Thursday Makeup Look – MAC Single Shadows!

I figured it was time to pull out those old MAC palettes again with my collection of single shadows.

I remember how big MAC eyeshadows used to be. Back in 2009 when I first started looking at makeup videos on YouTube, Mac eyeshadows were featured in every single makeup tutorial. People didn’t have a bunch of palettes, and there were no such thing as PR for YouTubers so people sat there with their well loved and much used MAC eyeshadows. Having a big MAC eyeshadow collection was the big eyeshadow dream. There were tons of videos with them as well “Top 10 Mac Shadows”, “The best colorful MAC shadows”, “My MAC eyeshadow collection” and so on. They were so much in focus and MAC single pans were the big thing to collect. Funny thing is, then they cost twice as much as they do today! The price was bumped down when MAC got some serious competition, mainly from MakeupGeek to begin with but a lot of brands popped up and made cheaper single pan shadows of good quality, so MAC just could not keep the 12$ price-tag on them.

IMG_20180709_222222_078.jpg

They were just so iconic, and I still remember how excited I was when I got my first MAC shadow (It was Embark). My collection has grown since then, but I rarely use my MAC shadows, which is such a shame because I have both colors and neutrals suitable for so many different things. As I always say in these posts, I need to use them more!

Today I went for something colorful. Are you surprised?

  • MAC Eyeshadows – Brulé, Kid, Shroom, Electric Eel, Lucky Green, Tilt, Goldenrod, Three Ring Yellow, DF7, Nocturnal, Nehru.
  • Chanel Le Kôhl Crayon – Blanc.
  • Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade – Medium Brown.

  • Zoeva Brow Spectrum – Bro30, Bro70.

MAC eyeshadows really are nice to work with. Not as highly pigmented as we have seen much of in later years, and far more hard pressed than what’s been popular lately, but the quality is good. I feel inspired to tidy up my MAC palettes now, buy those extra inserts I have postponed for years, adding some fun shades to my collection and making the palettes a bit more streamlined. Well, wish me luck!

Do you collect MAC eyeshadows? What are your staples that you thing I should pick up? Let me know in the comments!
