BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING → Makeup Revolution, Stila

14. december 2015

So I did som damage during Black Friday. Haven’t gotten most of it yet, but I do have some things to show you guys! As many of you may know, I really like Makeup Revolution. Very (VERY) cheap makeup – but their products are good quality. Fun fact: one of my all time favorite lipstick is from them and it was only $2! I didn’treally have high hopes at all, the first time I bought something from them. I often find myself thinking “if it’s too cheap, the makeup is probably not the best” – shame on me! They really had me fooled. I have yet to receive something bad from them.

Which leads me to this gorgeous set. I saw this on their website and it had a big discount. I was going to buy the blush palette anyway, so why not just buy the whole set and get the other things too? It was around $1 and you get 8 blushes, 8 highlighters and 2 brushes. That is freaking insane. I already had one of their brushes and I love that one, so I wanted to try the ones in this set, so you know it was faith and I had to purchase it.

Again I had low expectations. Shame on me. Again. I don’t even know where to start, I’m so high on this. The blushes are all very pigmented and you can never go wong with those colors. The highlighters I’ve only swatched a bit, but so far they look good. Well I wouldn’t say they beat my ABH highlighter or Mary Lou, but they’re awesome and very good for that price.

Then there’s the brushes .. They’re one of the softest brushes I own. One of them (the biggest one) is a blusher brush and the angled one is a highligher brush (could be used for contour as well).

Don’t even get me started on the design .. They actually look expensive which I really like. I’m a sucker for pretty brushes. All in all, I’m 100% pleased. Can’t wait to play with it all!

The next thing I got was a liquid lipstick from Stila. Maybe you’ve heard of it, since it’s one of the most talked about on YouTube. I got the color Bellissima and it’s sooo pretty. This is how it’s described: “Enriched with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil, Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick hydrates and softens lips. Featuring a weightless texture which delivers superb comfort to lips, Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick has a colour-rich formula which will not bleed or transfer.”

And I agree 100%. I swatched it on my hand and 2 days after, I can still see some of the swatch. That’s what I call a long lasting lipstick! It’s feels nice to have on the lips, which means a lot to me, because I hate wearing liquid lipstick that feels horrible. I now get why they are so popular.  Five stars from me!

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS SELF-MADE PALETTE

12. december 2015

I finally got it. I know, I’m late! Again I wanted to wait buying it, but for some reason I didn’t catch the fact that it’s limited edition, so I panicked and ordered it. I understand if some of you think this is a lame post since it’s been out for so long, but I’m really excited and happy and wanted to share this with you! I’m surprised it wasn’t that expensive (not that I complain!). And as any ABH product: it’s perfect. YEP not much of a review here – I LOVE it. The colors are outstandingly beautiful, buttery and pigmented. I never buy a palette if there’s too many shades I know I won’t use – and this one is just so on point. I needed these colors in my life!

NEW CAMERA & A BETTER BLOG

9. december 2015

Hi guys! OMG. I finally got my new camera and I am in love. No more crappy pictures, I promise! I actually feel bad for posting bad pictures, but you know, getting a new camera is expensive and I wanted to make sure that I got the right one.

So I found this one because everyone and their mother talks about it on YouTube. Every beauty guru literally have this camera and now I get it. It’s truly one of the best. Especially if you’re into makeup. It’s the Sony Alpha A5100.

What is so special about it is the fact that it catches details. One of the things I hate the most, is spending a really long time on my makeup and then I want to take a picture and it doesn’t show up. It’s horrible! This camera is basically made for that and that’s how I knew it was the right one for me.

So when I got it, I expected it to be good … But wow it blew my mind. I’m still speechless, it’s seriously so amazing at taking pictures, I can’t even describe it.

So look forward to a whole new blog – a better blog! Can’t wait to show you guys how good it is 🙂download

KYLIE JENNER LIP KIT // DUPES

8. december 2015

So everyone knows about the Kylie lip kit that basically sold out in 30 seconds. I know, because I was on the site just as she posted and I was fast – got all 3 and when I was about to buy, it was sold out. Now you can get it on Ebay .. They’re just 100 times more expensive. So if you don’t feel like spending all of your money on it, I found some dupes.

Colourpop is insanely popular and cheap. A rumor actually started to surface soon after the lip kits all sold out. Beauty bloggers noticed similarities in the swatches and accused Kylie for some things. No one really knows if it’s true or not – let’s just focus on the beautiful makeup, shall we? The 3 similar shades from Colourpop are ‘Clueless,’ ‘Beeper,’ and ‘Limbo.'”

Keep in mind that the lighting, skin tone, and filters are all different.

Pretty close, huh? So you can either wait for Kylie to restock or buy something similar. All in all it’s very pretty shades and I really like them. I do think it will be super hard to actually get the Lip kit when she restocks because they’re so popular. Best of luck!

A CRUSH ON MARC JACOBS

5. december 2015

So a while back, Marc Jacob’s came out with a new primer. It’s the Undercover Perfecting Coconut Face Primer. It quickly became popular and I kinda have a crush on it. It even smells like coconut – which is my favorit! It’s so sleek and expensive looking and I really like the design. I’ve only heard good things about it, and I’m kinda debating if I should buy it or not. And yes this is in the high end of makeup, so if you feel like splurging on something, this is an option. For some reason I’m just really fascinated by it.

This is what it says on their website:

“Marc Jacobs Undercover Perfecting Coconut Face Primer uses deconstructed young coconut in a nutrient-rich, perfecting face primer that instantly extends makeup wear, while creating a smooth and improved skin surface. The formula is enriched with five forms of coconut for an invisible canvas that keeps makeup wearing longer and skin looking younger. ”

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m tempted! It costs $44.00, which is expensive for a primer, but again, for those of you who’s looking for something to splurge on – here you have it. You can buy it HERE.
