NARS Haul

The irresistible packaging of a NARS product is your first lead into the brand and then you get sucked into the performance and pigmentation. I picked up these two gorgeous bits form their Spring Collection and re-stocked an old fave. Here are my thoughts:  Continue reading NARS Haul

Adele ‘Hello’ Makeup Tutorial

If I say I haven’t heard Adele’s Hello on repeat for the last 2 days, I’d be lying.

A self-proclaimed Adele lover for a while now, I’ve adored her sound, her story and her soulfulness. She is an inspiration, flaunting her size matter-of-factly and singing with all that she’s got. I’d highly recommend reading her biography by Marc Shapiro and you’d know why this girl is an absolute idol. Continue reading Adele ‘Hello’ Makeup Tutorial

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Review

DSCF1481

First Impressions: Holy Cow, this is fantastic!

I’m so in love with this palette, it has become an absolute staple in my daily routine and I cannot live without ALL of them. The colors include (from right to left) Dim Light, Incandescent Light and Radiant Light. The powders are finely milled providing a realistic glow that is not over the top and registers natural on the skin.

The pros of the palette is that it can be used as an all-over glow powder to add a little something as a finishing touch or as a stunning highlighter on the tops of the cheeks (and anywhere you desire!). I’ve used it to set my concealer as well as add a sheen to my skin. The powders blend seamlessly and don’t cling to dry patches or bring them to notice. I’d say the first two shades are amazing at setting the skin and the last one is quite a sheer highlighter. All in all this is a luxe product absolutely worth buying!

Tell me: What Hourglass products are you a fan of?

DiorSkin Nude BB Cream – Review

For year now, I’ve seen Vivianna Does Makeup talk about the beaut that is the DiorSkin Nude BB Cream. Obviously, I fell prey to her spot-on, faff-free descriptions and the promises of good skin in tube jargon. Two weeks ago, whilst sprinting the mall with 3 of my girlfriends, I stepped on the Dior side. Now, I can’t seem to find my way back and for good reason!  Continue reading DiorSkin Nude BB Cream – Review
