Kiko recently launched their Holiday 2017 Collection, titled ‘Arctic Holiday’ and includes three baked blushes.  I couldn’t resist picking up two of the blushes as they were soooo pretty.  The products themselves, the packaging and the outer box are so beautifully presented and look lovely.  I think these blushes would make wonderful gifts for any make-up lover or as a special treat for yourself.

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in ‘Sparkling Bellini’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in July 2016, I wrote a post featuring the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer (click here to read the post).  I really loved this product (and still do!) and it made me curious about the other Sweethearts products.  My cousin’s wife mentioned to me that she had purchased the Sweethearts blush in ‘Peach Beach’ and so I thought it would be fun to check out the range.  

After swatching (and re-swatching) each of the blushes, I settled on ‘Sparkling Bellini’.  This particular blush has now become one of my favourites whenever I want to add a peachy-pink glow to my cheeks.  The blush is made up of three complementary shades (more on that below), meaning you can get four different blush effects on your cheeks.  Versatile, glowy and peachy-pink cheeks – I love it!

My Holiday Make-up Bag

When I’m on holiday, I like my make-up to be effortless and easy.  I like to look polished and nicely presented but I don’t want to have to spend much time getting ready.  When I’m visiting warmer climates, I also like my make-up to be very light and fresh; I prefer not to have much on my face at all.  Over the years, I’ve managed to whittle down my holiday make-up bag to those products that I know I will use.

I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring those products, as I know how hard it can be to leave products behind when you are a make-up lover! This post features my favourite face, eye and lip products for taking on holiday.

I’ve been reading a lot about Charlotte Tilbury products recently and really fancied trying them out.  They are very pricey, though, and so I’ve held off buying any of the individual products.  The ‘Instant Look in a Palette’, though, really caught my interest as it contains smaller versions of some of Charlotte Tilbury’s most popular products – all in one handy travel-sized palette.

The palette is intended to give you just as it says in the name – an ‘Instant Look in a Palette: 5 Minute Face on the Go’.  This product is designed for women who just want a quick and easy way to look polished and naturally beautiful.  So an ‘Instant Look’ and a range of Charlotte Tilbury’s products in one palette – sounds good to me!

I recently purchased the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in Sweet Tea and I absolutely love it.  Functional, glowy and also stylishly presented – what’s not to love?! This product is fantastic if you want something which gives you a sun-kissed finish and also looks wonderful on your dressing table.  It is also wonderful as a gift, in that it comes beautifully presented in the outer box and the inner packaging.

Today, I’m going to introduce you to one of my favourite multi-tasking highlighting products: The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer.  I am slightly obsessed with highlighting products (I just love the effect that they give) and just had to get it.  Mary-Lou Manizer is a pale champagne-gold powder highlighter which can be used to add radiance to the face, cheeks and eyes.  It is perfectly suited to obtaining the strobing effect which is so popular right now.

Benefit Rockateur Blusher

 

Today, I am going to introduce you to one of my new favourite blushers: Benefit Rockateur Blusher.  Rockateur is described as a ‘rose-gold’ and I find that the blusher fits this description well.  The blusher comes in a box which includes a small brush and a mirror, which means you can easily pop it in your bag for touch-ups when you are out and about.
