Makeup Madness with Maybelline – Blushed Nudes, Brow Precise, Push Up Angel and more…

It’s been weeks since I received this generous press drop from Maybelline and I’ve thoroughly put it to the test. There have been hits and misses and products just down right amazing. Keep on reading if you’d like to find out which ones are worth the spend. Maybelline Master Strobing Stick – R160 This is an affordable formula dupe for the renowned Benefit Watts Up highlighter.

MAC Shadescents Range – Velvet Teddy Perfume & Lipstick

Happy Monday bellas, I hope you had an amazing weekend. Sorry for the lack of blog posts recently. I’m trying to introduce some new features into my blog posts that will benefit you very much. Just been struggling a bit to get it to work properly so this might be a slightly quieter week as well. However, before I completely desert you, I wanted to share my first fragrance post here on Belle Blushh. It’s no secret that I’ve hit the big 3-0.
