Sometimes when you first discover a makeup brand, you immediately fall in love.
You want to buy all of their products, go home and just dump it all on your face.
With Benefit I never really had that experience, I always thought they looked fun and such, but not “tickle-my makeup belly-worthy” ← (let’s make that a thing, haha)
However, when I tried Benefit’s “The Porefessional” and the “They’re Real!” mascara my love for Benefit started growing rapidly. My love for them started growing so fast, I felt a little tickle in my makeup belly every time I used one of their products.
I decided to buy the Creaseless Cream Shadow in “My Two Cents” and Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner.. More! →
When it comes to the world of lipsticks, in my opinion, Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks are at the top of the lipstick Mount Everest. Their packing has the appearance of a three billion dollar mansion, their quality is as good as Iron Man’s suit and just their overall feeling makes you feel like a Hollywood star.
When I saw amazing makeup artist Lisa Eldrigde use Y.S.L’s Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick in number 19 I literally gasped for air. Such a stunning, modern pop of color.
I decided to splurge and buy two Rouge Volupté Shines myself! More! →
A couple of days ago on Twitter I saw a tweet about a new INGLOT Lipstick palette filled with the most crazy colors you could ever wish for. At first I thought it was a very late April Fools joke, but oh no, INGLOT wasn’t kidding with this one.
INGLOT came up with ten outrageous colors, all put in one palette for lips, eyes and all other crazy looks you can use this palette with.
Behold, the INGLOT Color Play Lipstick Palette! ..get ready for tons of pictures :) More! →
When O.P.I first launched their Liquid Sand™ polishes in their Mariah Carey collection
I immediately was a huge fan of the new texture trend. Something so new, trendy and edgy. Just in time because the crackle polishes really started to piss me off. With this new texture trend it’s all about making you nails look like gritty, plasterer, stone-ish nails!
Barry M decided to give it a go as well, and I’m a huge, obsessed fan. More! →
Illamasqua recently launched their “I’mperfection” collection, which is all about loving yourself and showing what makes you perfectly imperfect. -I love it when brands do that-
One of the many amazing products that were launched with this collection are the new “speckled” nail polishes. Nail polishes that are meant to look like little speckled-eggs. “Speckled Eggs?!” you say? – Yes, speckled eggs.. More! →
Sigma: The brand that started off their business with brushes. People loved the brushes.
The brand that after that, started releasing makeup palettes. People loved the palettes.
And now Sigma decided to make life even more fun with their new “Eye Shadow Bases“.
..my guess is that people, again, will love these.
9 yummy, deliciously good-looking shades with colors ranging from lovely nudes, to daring darks and something that matches glamours ;) More! →
As if there weren’t enough lip product reviews on here lately, here I am with another one!
(I’m sorry, I just really like making these, haha)
If there’s one brand that has been making my heart pound a little faster lately, it has to be NARS. I don’t own a lot of their products, but the products I do have are mindblowingly amazing, and in general end up being huge favorites.
I recently bought two of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils I had been eyeballing for weeks. And oh my, where have these babies been all my life? More! →
When M.A.C emailed me the press release for their “Year of the Snake” collection
I -no joke- screamed a little, almost burst out of my skin from excitement and begged for collection samples. I imagined writing the most awesome blogpost review on the products I’d receive, and just having a good ol’ time while doing all of it.
But when this pretty package landed in my hands, I actually had the flu.
And the flu, ladies and gentlemen, is a bitchy little thing. It makes anything pretty look 200% prettier. It makes pretty things look like angels sent from above.
(Imagine: Glowy products looking like a “glowing, mind blowing sunset”)
You can imagine that when I opened this pretty package, all the flu told me to do was: “SWATCH ALL OF THIS. You know you want to! *evil face*”
I was weak. I was lacking any type of pretty in my life at that moment.
And so I ended up swatching all the products, meaning I ruined them for review pictures.
But I did accomplish to leave the lipsticks unharmed.. More! →
Estée Lauder:A brand that always looked very intriguing, but never really got me.
The brand that I would completely ignore in makeup stores. The brand that always looked -dare I say it- old to me..
Last week when I went shopping with my mother and brother (the haul for that is here),
I bumped into some of Estée Lauder’s lipsticks and my interest in this brand shot into my heart like a lightning bolt. More! →
