Just a few days ago the beauty community got taken aback by the surprise sneak peek of the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, the fifth in the Naked palette family, characterized by gorgeous and very trendy warm toned shades. I was totally prey of this surprise sneak peek and the moment I saw the promotional image, I wanted it right away. Warm colors are my jam, just take a look at my Instagram feed. Reviews and swatches started coming out by bloggers and youtubers I trust and I started being less enthusiastic about this new Naked Heat palette, so here is a product-specific antihaul, as well my Urban Decay Naked Heat dupes.
Single pan pressed eyeshadows are my weakness, I collect them, I love them. Now that I’ve said that, you won’t be surprised that I’m coming to you with a review and swatches of the new Colourpop pressed shadows. Colourpop launched over 30 new pressed eyeshadows in January promoting it as their biggest launch yet. I picked up quite a few in the meantime and have been using them non stop, so here I thought it was about time to talk to you about them.
Woohoo we made it to the third and last post on the Makeup Geek lipsticks. If you missed them, part 1 on the Makeup Geek Iconic lipsticks is here, and part 2 on the Plush Cremes is here. This time we’re talking of their matte liquid lipsticks: take a look at these Makeup Geek Plush Matte swatches.
Here we go with part 2 of the swatches of the Makeup Geek lip products I own. In part one (here) we looked at the Iconic lipsticks, and today I am showing you one of their two liquid lipstick formulas. So let’s take a look at the Makeup Geek Plush Creme swatches.
Welcome back to the blog! I am running behind on my accompanying blog posts for the videos that are going up twice a week on my Youtube channel, but here is the first of a trio. In my latest video I swatched and reviewed all 15 lipsticks that Makeup Geek so kindly sent me but since there are three different types of lipsticks, I will be going through them in three different posts. Today we are taking a look at some Makeup Geek Iconic Lipstick swatches.
Ah the day of love, pinkness and hearts. Valentine’s Day has never been a particularly important day for me but somehow every year the first two weeks of February are all about the pink makeup. I naturally tend towards plummy shades and this year I want to share a Kylie inspired Valentine’s Day makeup tutorial.
First twelfth of the year is over and here we are again for the January beauty favorites. I must say January has been great so far from the blog side of things and I’ve been feeling very motivated to write and film and put out more content. I am still figuring out a good schedule for videos and blog posts as well as understanding how I should go about posting videos on the blog or not. But blabbing aside, let’s get into these beauty favorites!
Here we are for Part 2 of my 2016 makeup favorites. In Part 1 I told you all about my favorite products for the base and the face so now let’s take a look to eyes and lips. As I mentioned before, on the Youtube channel I split my favorites between Italian and other makeup, but on the blog I divided it by product type. So lets take a look at my favorite eye and lip makeup.
I am not one to dwell on the past, but going through my stash to find my 2016 makeup favorites is another matter. I have discovered a lot of amazing new makeup this year, some of which has become my go-to, holy grail, marry me-status makeup so I can’t wait to share them with you. This is a long post!
After months of resistance convincing myself that I didn’t need it, I caved and bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette with the sale at Ulta. I have used it for a bit now and though I am blown away by the quality of it, I decided to go through my Makeup Geek eyeshadow collection (read more here) because I had a feeling I already owned similar shades. So here is my review of the palette and some Makeup Geek Modern Renaissance dupes.
