Whats in my makeup bag – September 2018!

September and fall is finally here. I love fall with all the beautiful colors and crisp fresh air. I much prefer this season to summer actually! I am looking forward to fresh mountain bike rides with colorful leaves all over, to ride my horse in the forest, and to sit in a wooden heated sauna and relax. I look forward to the dark fall lipstick shades and the fall makeup looks. What do you like about fall? Anyway, let’s talk makeup bag!

This month I decided to leave my project pan palettes out of the bag. I already hit pan on Colourpop Yes Please and Anastasia Modern Renaissance, and the palettes I have left are Certifeye Tropical Wonders which is not my style for my makeup looks for work (I tend to go quite neutral believe it or not), and Zoeva En Taupe which is too cool-toned for my tan skin right now (You will be hearing more about this soon). So I got a few fun palettes to play with instead.

I choose three palettes. First Urban Decay Naked Heat, because I used it a few times when it was new and then forgot about it. It got way less use than it deserve because it is a beautiful palette. I figured the warm browns and neutrals would be good now for my tan skin (I will keep mentioning this tan until it disappears. Just so you know).

I also picked Tarte Make Belive In Yourself, because these soft colored metallic shades are perfect everyday colors in my opinion. And it’s a bit fun to incorporate some color in your everyday makeup as well. Sadly this is limited edition, but I hope Tarte brings it back. This is one of their better palettes, and for once it actually have some colors!

The third palette is Zoeva Artisto Eyeshadow Palette. Also this one has some colors, but they are quite muted and wearable and should be a good colorful option for everyday wear as well.

The Zoeva Artisto Blush Palette has one very warm matte blush, a similarly colored shimmery blush and a banana powder. This one is new to me but I think the colors will work on me now that I am tanned (yes, I said it again) while in winter they will be too dark.

For my face base I selected this little bunch!

  • History Of Woo Jewel Powder – Still working on this for my project pan. It’s just so huge! But I enjoy the powder and don’t mind at all that I have quite a bit left.
  • Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Play Makeup Foundation (Shell Beige) – I really enjoy the double wear formula and this is a nice color for me now that I’m tan (again). If also has SPF 10, and I always appreciate that in ly face makeup. We can still get a bit of sun in September too after all.
  • Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Flawless Wear Concealer – I think I had this in my makeup bag in July, at least it was recent, but I found it appropriate since I picked the matching foundation.
  • Hourglass Strobe Lighting Powder (Brilliant Strobe Light) – Love this powder and the all over glow it gives. I use it almost like a setting powder only that I focus it on the parts of my face I want highlighted.

And these are the rest of my face powders.

  • Too Faced Chocolate Soileil Bronzing Powder – I hope to hit pan this month. I don’t think I have too much left before I do because I can see the pattern in the tin pan, I Just don’t see any tin. This is a project pan item for those of you wondering.
  • Inglot Jennifer Lopez  Illuminator (Livin’ The Highlight) – Loose highlighters are not my go-to, but for some strange reason I felt I needed this. I don’t know why because I don’t feel very strongly towards either Jennifer Lopez or Inglot, but the combination for some reason intrigued me. Besides I want to glow like J-lo off course. So I bring this in my bag to try it out.
  • Glominerals Globlush (Papaya) – The project pan blush that will never end, or never show any wear actually. This is never ending, but I won’t give up. I still have September, October, November and December to try to get a pan. Wish me luck!
  • MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish (Whisper of Gilt) – This one I’ve tried a bit, and I love it! It’s also perfect for my summer tan (is it getting too much now?) since it’s such a  lovely golden shade.

IMG_20180829_164424_029.jpg

And some essentials too!

  • Revolution Pro Fix Illuminatin Fixing Spray – Or maybe not! This one is actually empty but I refilled this with my Mario Badescu facial spray because that bottle is huge, and this is nice and handy!
  • Aritaum All Day Lasting Primer – To be honest I don’t notice the world of a difference with this. I just use it because it has SPF 44, and I want my skin to be protected against the September sun as well, especially since I am outside most of the day.
  • L’Oreal Paradise Pomade Extatic (Light Blonde) – This is kind of too light for me, but I got it on sale for next to nothing. I may make it work for everyday wear when I don’t want a strong brow.
  • L’Oreal Mega Volume Miss Hippie Mascara – Because I need a mascara and this one works to my satisfaction.
  • H&M Brow Maker Duo (Ash Brown) – Because I need a back up in case the L’Oreal one just does not work. This has a perfect color for me. Besides it has a brow gel which I need.

IMG_20180829_164449_634.jpg

And lastly, all the fun lippies! I know I should be working on my project pan lippie, but I only got one of those left, and I feel that the color is not very suitable on me right now because you know….tan. So I will pick up working on it later this year. I think I just got a few weeks left of usage in it so I should be fine. In the mean time I get to play around with a bunch of new ones!

  • Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip ( Vitamin Sea) – I love the blotted lip formule for work appropriate looks. I just thinkt they are so flattering, and kind of unique. The lips look super super matte, like you had powder on top of them, and blotted at the same time. Love the look! This shade is a part of the summer collection that I didn’t try so I am exited.
  • Colourpop ultra Blotted Lip ( Soda Pop) – Exactly the same as above.
  • KissMe Liquid Lipstick (Hakuna Moscato) – A nice nude pink liquid lisptick.
  • KissMe Lipgloss (Yatchie) – A clear gloss with a pink/blue shift that is not too over the top. Really pretty.
  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick ( Celebrity Skin) – Superior dry-down formula in a nice nude.
  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick (Androgyny) – Same as above, just a bit darker.
  • Dose Of Colors (Stone) – One of my favorites in August, but I want to continue using it.
  • H&M Creme Lipstick (Cream Chestnut) – Underrated affordable but great formula in a nice nude.

That’s all I think! As usual I am excited to start a new month with new contend in my makeup bag, It’s fun to switch things up , and also to be able to focus on a limited amount of products. I do off course play around with makeup that I need to do reviews of and do looks with, but these are the items I use for my everyday work makeup.

Do you have a monthly makeup bag or basket to help you focus on some products? Or are you just winging it?

Remember to give me a follow on Bloglovin or Instagram if you haven’t already!

Makeup and Beauty Hauls – August 2018!

I went into this month fairly confident that I would not pick up too much. After all I still had untouched stuff in my drawers waiting to be reviewed and tested. I promise you, trying out your new stuff takes so much more time when your intention is to finally put out a review of it. I mean, you can’t just put something on your face twice, say “OK, I like this” and then produce a review. Or at least I can’t. I like to take my time. Things need a full wear test, all colors needs to be tested, can I eat with this lipstick and how does this foundation look after 12 hours. You get the point….there is only so much time, and I was quite generous to myself in June and things piled up.

Besides I have been building a roof recently, and spending a lot of my time in the mountains, which means I had my share of bare faced days (which I love too!).

Even though I thought I would not get that much, I kind of did. So some of these are things I picked up in July (or even June, things can easily take 4+ weeks in shipping to Norway), but I still got a decent amount of stuff. Besides I know about everything that’s on it’s way in the mail too.

But before we dive into it, this is just a friendly reminder that if you would like to see a review of something please shout it out it the comments. Things are guaranteed to be reviewed faster if I know there is something that is particularly interesting for you. So don’t be shy, because I want to know what you want to read! Enough rambling, let’s look at all the new stuff!

IMG_20180824_151734_969.jpg

Some necessaries first! I am running out of the brow pencil I used for work so I picked up two brow products on sale. The L’Oreal Paradise Pomade in Light Blonde. It’s the only shade they had and not at all my preferred one, but for a very natural and soft look it could work.  It was on sale so it was mostly to try the formula, since it was basically free I didn’t have much to loose. If the color is awful I still get to try the formula to decide if it’s wort picking up my correct shade. The other brow product is a H&M Brow Maker Duo in the shade Ash Brown, and this shade is perfect for everyday wear. It has a pencil in one end and brow gel in the other. So smart!

I also picked up the Ardell Flawless Lashes in 804 because they look beautiful, and the L’Oreal Mega Volume Miss Hippie Mascara.

IMG_20180824_180708_542.jpg

The September Rose brand is very new to me, and I haven’t tried anything from them before. But when I saw the Slush Eyeshadow Palette I could not resist. It’s big and beautiful with a lot of fun colors. Besides I love testing out indie brands!

IMG_20180824_175817_316.jpg

This guy has been on my wish list for so long. I have been waiting for it to come back in stock on Beautylish but it just never happened. I got a bit worried this was disappearing since it’s a limited edition palette, and I had to pick it up from Sephora instead. Natasha Denona has my favorite eyeshadow formula, so even though it’s pricey (to say the least!) to me they are worth it. The Tropic Eyeshadow Palette is therefore a much welcome part in my collection.

IMG_20180824_151758_798.jpg

This loose setting powder Guerlain Les Voilettes Translucent Loose Powder Mattifying Veil was something I was lucky enough to get second hand for next to nothing. I love getting makeup second hand because so many people have stuff just laying around that they don’t use, and it’s such a good idea to re-home them. Do you ever buy makeup second hand?

This one is in prime condition and has lots of product left.

IMG_20180824_151826_903.jpg

I also got the Guerlain Terracotta Sun in The City Golden Glimmer Powder second hand, and as you can see this is in supreme condition. So much fun to find collection pieces like this, and I am not complaining to get a solid knock-off of the high Guerlain price tag either.

IMG_20180826_112943_108.jpg

I’ve been wanting this since it came out, and I finally got around to it and picked up the Anastasia Dream Glowkit.I didn’t realize it had that much glitter in it. Good thing I like to collect because I am not sure how much use I will get out of this. Oh well, shame on me for not swatching it in store, and I have to try it on my face before giving it a final verdict too.

IMG_20180826_112622_376.jpg

A small parcel from Zoeava arrived with the Zoeva Cafè Eyeshadow Palette and the Zoeava Bamboo Crease Brush. If you haven’t tried Zoeva brushes or eyeshadows you are missing out! This palette looks so gorgeous and I am particularly drawn to the green in the middle of the top row. So pretty!

IMG_20180826_113632_766.jpg

Even though festival season is over, and maybe also the colors are more for spring and summer (Who am I kidding? I use any shade whenever I want, it’s makeup, you can do whatever you want!) I just had to have this in the end. I have been debating it for so long. I had 4 BH Cosmetics palette in the past, and I decluttered 3 because the quality was not exactly what I wanted, but this one has been raved so much about and I eventually gave in. I did swatch it a bit right after I got it, and I am not sad about it though. I can tell just from swatching that this is waaaaay better than those I decluttered.

IMG_20180826_110936_310.jpg

As you may know I am constantly working on building up my Juvia’s Place palette collection, and I am adding piece by piece. This month I picked up the Saharan II palette. It’s so much more beautiful than what I’d imagined. I know all Juvia’s Place palettes are good though, for me they just work really well.

IMG_20180821_135154_430.jpg

I always make a separate post about my lip bundle form the Liveglam KissMe Liquid Lipstick Subscription, so you can read ll about these shades and how they performed here.

IMG_20180829_164540_633.jpg

And off course I picked up the Colourpop X Kathleen Lights Zodiac Collection. Every single piece of it actually. I think everything looks so pretty and I bet I will get a lot of use out of them. Despite not being a fan of the super shock shadow, I actually really light the highlighter version. I am under the impression that they don’t dry out that quick.

IMG_20180902_132958_219.jpg

I also picked up three new Morphe brushes through my MorpheMe subscription. A powder brush, a blending brush and a pencil brush. I am currently working on building my brush collection. I always use clean brushes when I do eye makeup, and when I get creative I run through my brushes quickly. So I am trying to build up the collection, and particularly detail eye brushes are something I really fancy.

IMG_20180902_132907_683.jpg

Lastly I didn’t plan on buying this at all, but when BeautyBay had a sale The Lunar Beauty Life’s A Drag became a new addition to my palette collection. I kind of with the outside was as pretty as the inside to be honest, and the reason why I didn’t want it in the first place was the cover design. I could not resist a good discount though and the inside (which is always what counts, for both palettes and humans).

I am looking forward to getting to know these products more. Did you get anything exciting in August?

XOXO

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?

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.

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.

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.
  • Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24 H – Black.
  • Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara.
  • Zoeva Brow Spectrum – Bro30, Bro70.
  • House Of Lashes – Noir Fairy Light.

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!
