Hi guys! Blush was a makeup step that I overlooked for years. Until probably about 2 to 3 years ago, I never wore blush. While I switch up the intensity and shade of my blush depending on the look I’m going for, I love a good natural looking blush! Today I thought I would share 3 of my favourites!
Urban Decay | Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Fetish
This is by far one of my favourite blushes ever. You can’t tell by looking at it, but I wear this shade almost every day! If I don’t know which blush I want to wear, this matte beauty is what will end up on my face. It is very pigmented so just a tiny tap of a brush into the product is all you need to get a light dusting of pinky-nude blush! I’ve yet to find a makeup look that this shade doesn’t go with.
Hi guys! This post is a day later than intended, I usually post on Wednesday’s, however due to unforeseen circumstances, I’ve been pre-occupied this week. I’m hoping Friday’s post will go up on-time but we will see how things progress. This is an unusual week.
So, today I thought it would be fun to round-up the liquid lipsticks in my collection. Liquid lipsticks are a very personal choice, everyone seems to have a different opinion on which they like. All of these opinions are based on my personal experience. What works for me, may be different for you.

Colourpop | Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks
The Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks seem to have the most mixed reviews I have ever seen online. I however, love the ones that I have. I do make sure I read reviews before I purchase them though. It seems to make a difference in which colours you purchase when it comes to formula. I own a pretty good variety of shades, you can see them all in my swatches below. I find that they are pigmented and very long-wearing. They can be a bit drying, but I always put lip balm on while I’m doing the rest of my makeup and let it soak in and then I blot off the excess before applying my lipstick. When I do this, I do not notice a drying sensation and if I do, its many hours after I’ve applied it. Continue reading
Hi guys! I have another round-up style post for you today! This time we are going to take a look at the purple lipsticks that I have in my collection. Purple is a colour that, depending on the shade, some people are not comfortable wearing. I happen to love wearing purple lipsticks but this could be rooted in my deep affection for the colour purple.
Hi guys! I’ve got another round-up style post for you today! Today I’m going through my pink lipsticks! Pink is such a fun colour to wear on the lips. There is such a range of different pinks that there is a little something for everyone! The bright & the bold and the light & the subtle!
Hi guys! After my last round-up post I decided to round-up my blushes and swatch those for you as well. I figured I would start with blushes because it’s a relatively small portion of my makeup collection. I love how much a complimentary blush can make a look more complete. I usually go for a little wash of colour on my cheeks, I don’t really wear anything too intense when it comes to blushes. The blushes are less intense than my swatches suggest, I tried to build up the colours so that my camera would pick them up. Continue reading
