Hi my loves! If you’re a beauty fanatic like me, from Europe and you are absolutely heart broken that you can’t get your hands on all of the amazing hyped up brands that you see constantly on YouTube – fear no more! I have found my new favorite website, from the UK and they have a TON of the most popular brands that I have been dying to try for so many years. They’re called London Loves Beauty
Just to mention a few of the brands they sell: Colourpop, TATCHA, Natasha Denona, Milk Makeup, Pat McGrath, Tarte and the list goes on! I really encourage you guys to check out their website: https://londonlovesbeauty.com/
They were so kind to send 2 products – Colourpop x Kathleen Lights Dream St palette & TATCHA The Silk Canvas Protective Primer. Two crazy hyped up products. I know the palette isn’t the newest collab from Kathleen, but I have wanted it for sooo long. Sorry not sorry!TATCHA The Silk Canvas Protective Primer £70.00: A velvety priming balm of pressed silk that smooths and makes makeup last longer while keeping it out of skin, helping to prevent clogged pores and breakouts. Now this has blown up everywhere. People are literally going crazy over it. And yes it is super expensive, but TATCHA is a very luxurious brand.
This multitasking skin-protecting, makeup-perfecting primer is for face, eyes, and lips. Silk extracts feel nourishing on skin and diminish the look of pores, fines lines, and imperfections for the perfect canvas before makeup. Silk powder makes makeup glide on more evenly and last longer, minimizing excess shine with a soft focus finish.
Now normally I stay away from these types of products, because they always just make me super matte and since I have dry skin, that’s the last thing I want. But I’ve seen a lot of reviews from people with dry skin and they are all loving it. So I decided to just go for it. And they were right. It does mattify a little, but it doesn’t dry out my skin or remove the glow I have from my other primer, which is so nice. The description of this product is spot on. My face looked photoshopped. There’s something about this product, it’s SO different and it really does work – which is why I can justify the price tag. I have no problem repurchasing this once I run out. My foundation glides on so much easier, it makes my makeup last longer and it just creates the perfect canvas. It IS worth the hype!
The packaging is stunning, it’s heavy and feels luxurious. Colourpop x Kathleen Lights Dream St Palette £30.00: Super versatile warm toned nudes with rich pops of colour can take your look from heavenly to out of this world in only a few swipes. Mattes, metallics, satins – every shadow is buttery soft and so easy to blend.
I assume everyone has heard of this palette by now. Colourpop is so affordable, keep in mind the price will be a bit more than usual because it’s a UK website. It’s still quite affordable. If you live in the EU, all items include all import tax, duties & courier clearance fee charges, unlike if you ordered off a US company which can really mount up when ordering from outside of the EU trade zone.
Anyway! This palette is amazing. Surprise, surprise. This is my first time trying Colourpop eyeshadows and I am so impressed. The formula is great, the shadows are buttery and the colors are stunning, easy to blend and it’s a good go-to palette. The only thing is, Star Dust and Twinkle are so similar, it would’ve been nice with a different shade, because on the lid they end up looking the same. Other than that, I’m really happy with the palette! All in all, I’m blown away. By the products and by the website. I know where I’ll be shopping from now on. I’m so glad I can finally get my hands on brands that I’ve been dying to try for years. London Loves Beauty are also really quick to get newest launches, so you won’t be waiting for ages. I hope this helped you guys that are in the same situation as me.
