So my parent recently came back from a month long trip to the UK and FRANCE. And they went crazy with the presents and completely spoilt me! I am so increbibly thankful for everything they got me and I can’t wait to try it all out. As soon as I got this package in the mail I’ve been working hard to get this post up for you guys as quickly as I could 🙂
Too Faced X NikkieTutorials – The Power of Makeup kit
I am So excited to try this out! I’ve heard mixed reviews but from the swatches I did earlier I’m really happy with the pigmentation besides a couple of shades.
Here’s swatches of the mascara, sketch marker liquid liner and the loose glitter. This photo does not do the glitter justice. I’m obsessed with it already and already know I’ll be using this glitter as the star of my eye look on Christmas Day 💕
I love the face powders you get in this palette. I love the blush ‘I will always love you’ so having one in this palette is super handy for travel. I already own the chocolate Soleil bronzer and love it but have found in this palette it was really hard to pick up any kind of pigmentation for the swatch above. It might just be a film over the top of the bronzer but it didn’t have that buttery smooth texture that I’m so used to with this bronzer. I’ll keep you posted on it, if it gets any better.
These are my types of shades! Frosted yum is already a favourite just from swatching it. So buttery and smooth. I had to work on the shades mmakeup and chill’ and ‘wanted’ to build up the pigment for these swatches. But I don’t mind shades like that being less pigmented as it gives me the chance to slowly build up my look.
Urban Decay – Moondust eyeshadow palette
I don’t know about you but I am in love with Urban Decay moon dust eyeshadows, so when they announced this palette it went straight to my wish list and it certainly didn’t disappoint!
These all have great colour pay off. I did a few extra swipes of Vega to get the same pay off as the rest but they rest were very consistent. My favourites from the swatches are Element, Lithium and Galaxy if I had to choose a top three but honestly I love all of these shades and will use all of them.
Huda Beauty Liquid Matte – Cheerleader
Another product that’s been on my Wishlist for quite awhile now and it’s beautiful. It’s a liquid matte lipstick that when you apply it smells like Malibu Rum and it’s a very thin, pigmented formula. Not streaky at all and soooo comfortable on the lips. I’ve worn it for a few hours now and it hasn’t worn away or crack at all. Not drying either. I need to get more shades now I’m in love. This red is absolutely stunning.
LUSH Oxford street soap and bath melts
Les Merveilleuses powder cheek colour in 04
MAC Star Trek – Trip the Light Fantastic Powder in Luna Luster
Another item on my wish list that my parents didn’t even know it was a product I was dying to get my hands on. It’s almost too pretty to touch but I had to search it for you all and damn it’s stunning
MAC cremesheen lipstick – Prepare for Pleasure
I finally have my first ever MAC lipstick!
I also got a heap of samples from sephora and a heap of stuff not Beauty related but I think this post is long enough haha. Well I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any of these products I would love to know your thought on them.
