NYX Week – NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette Review & Swatches

Oh wee *rubbing hands excitedly*, do I have a pretty poppy to show you today. As I mentioned in my NYX liquid lipstick comparison post here yesterday, I picked up the NYX Lingerie in Exotic from fellow beauty blogger Azraa from Prettifulblog. Along with it I picked up this beauty. The NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette. You know I usually like to have my highlight so popping it’s visible from space but not anymore. I don’t know what changed or when but recently I’ve been toning things down a bit. Instead of the ‘BAM in your face’/’cheekbones for days’ look,…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer Lip Gloss Set Review & Swatches

Hiya bellas, Hope you had a lovely and fruitful weekend. Since Spring hit I’ve been suffering miserably with hayfever and sinuses but also glad the winter cold is behind us. I’m all for sunny days and my dream vacay is lazing on a warm, sandy beach with lots of food and drink. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer Lip Gloss Set reminds me exactly of that. With 6 travel-sized glosses, this set is perfect for any handbag or weekend away. I’ve never been much of a lip gloss girl. Fully opaque, non-sticky lips has always been my preference. But with the newer formulas…

Bigger & Bolder Brows with the NEW Benefit Brow Collection

I’m sure by now you’ve seen hundreds, if not thousands of blog posts and videos featuring the NEW Benefit Brow collection. While the collection includes 45 products, some of them have been repackaged and introduced new shades but there are actually only 13 new products. That’s still a lot of items just for eyebrows and it caters for everybody, from sparse brows to dark skin. The Benefit Brow Collection was launched exclusively online at Red Square on the 1st of this month. I usually try to swatch/test items before I purchase but I just could not wait for today. Instead I…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Gleam

Hiya bellas, I cannot believe a whole week has passed since I last published my May Favourites here on my blog. To be honest, it feels like forever and I really missed it. I’ve been so sick this entire week with the flu, with my days mostly consisting of sleeping. I’m ashamed to say I’ve gone so far as neglecting my skincare routine and while a cotton round seeped with micellar water seems quick and easy, the neglect of my face is really starting to show. Hopefully I’ll be in better spirits soon and I can kick start my derriere…
