I recently picked up a few of the Rimmel Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to Shadows in a 3 for 2 deal and I’ve really been enjoying using them.  These products can be used just as their name states; apply them as a liquid eyeliner or blend them out on to the lid for a sparkly eyeshadow look.

I think this product is a great way to experiment with your look, whether you choose to wear it as a bold, metallic liner along your lashline or if you like to smudge it out for a soft, gentle sparkle on the lid.  The wide choice in shades (16 on the Rimmel site) also means you can mix it up however you choose.

Glimmer and Shimmer With MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows

 

MAC Shiny Pretty Things Eyeshadows

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAC has released a new formulation of eyeshadow – Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow – as part of their Holiday 2018 ‘Shiny Pretty Things’ collection.  I bought one eyeshadow (Make a Wish) to try and ended up going back for two more as they are stunning!

If you are looking for a product which is ultra shiny, sparkly and pigmented, then I highly recommend trying the Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows! These eyeshadows impart a opaque coat of glitz on the lids with just a simple patting on with a finger or a brush.  I’ve not used a glittery eyeshadow before where been able to get a high impact, opaque finish so quickly and easily!

Kiko Radiant Baked Blush in 02 About A Coral

I recently picked up Kiko Radiant Baked Blush in 02 About A Coral and have been enjoying wearing it so much.  This blusher gives such a radiant, natural flush to the cheeks and the lighter swirls add a subtle burst of luminosity. 

I think this blusher is so pretty for everyday and one that works well with a range of looks, from neutral, colourful and super smokey. 

I also think the Kiko Radiant Baked Blush is a great dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushers, as there are some similarities in terms of finish, glow and the overall look both products give to the cheeks.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

If you dislike the feel or look of liquid foundations on your skin, then I highly recommend trying out the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup.  I’ve found myself reaching for this foundation on a regular basis, as I just love the consistency, feel, look and finish on my skin.  I generally prefer to wear face powder or powder foundations on a daily basis, so to find a liquid foundation that I actually like wearing shows me that this product is something special!

The formula is so comfortable, lightweight and natural looking that it is hard to believe I am wearing a liquid foundation.  Add to that the fresh, radiant and healthy look it gives to my skin and I think Urban Decay are on to a real winner with this product!

I have an article on the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer on the site which you can find here. I’m planning on updating the post as I wrote it back in 2016, so keep an eye out for the updated version soon!

I have been looking for ideas for new posts and found this make-up tag on a UK beauty and lifestyle blog I came across recently (lablogbeaute.co.uk).  I really enjoy reading this type of posts on other sites and I thought it might be a nice way for you all to get to know me better.  I’ve reduced the number of questions to 12 so my post isn’t too long.  Hope you enjoy reading the post!

Urban Decay Thunderbird Eyeshadow: Quick Smokey Eyes in a Flash

Urban Decay Thunderbird eyeshadow is one of my favourite shades from the brand and was added to Urban Decay’s line-up of permanent single eyeshadows in 2017.

The tone of this shade makes it a go-to for me whenever I want to create a quick, smokey look.  I enjoy combining various colours but sometimes it is just nice to use one or two singles for a look with minimal fuss.

I haven’t seen folk talking about this eyeshadow, so I thought I would put a post together for those of you who love smokey eyes and want an easy way to get them with minimal fuss!

There are so many products on the market for undereye concealers and so I thought it would be useful to write a post on my favourite products in this area.  This particular post accompanies my recent article on tips for undereye concealer, which you can see here.

I’m a huge fan of the Too Faced Peaches and Cream products and am absolutely loving their new Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Long Wear Lipsticks.  I first purchased the shade ‘Breakfast Club’ and was so impressed that I ended up picking up two more shades – Got Peach? and Peach Beach.

I love the vibrancy, opacity, smoothness and comfortable feel of these lipsticks.  They smell delicious too, due to their refreshing peachy, vanilla-esque scent.

If you are on the look out for a new matte lipstick with incredible pigment, opacity and comfort, then I highly recommend the Too Faced Peach Kiss range!

Too Faced Sugar Peach Wet And Dry Face & Eye Palette

Last week, I was browsing in Debenhams and picked up the Too Faced Sugar Peach Wet and Dry Face & Eye Palette.  The palette didn’t really stand out to me online but in person, it looked so beautiful! I’ve been playing around with it and think it is amazing!

I love the versatility, scent and glowy, wide-awake look that this palette gives to the eyes, cheeks and face.  The palette also looks – and feels – so luxurious, special and classy, making it a real treat to use.

I think that the Too Faced Sugar Sweet Palette is definitely worth a look if you want a daily palette to make your whole face quickly appear brighter, glowy and healthy!

Some time ago, I posted a sneak peek of the NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Hooked on Glow’ (you can see the post here).  The palette really caught my eye due to the beautiful mix of peach, gold and brown shades in various finishes and tones.

I’ve been using the palette for quite a while now and think it is amazing! The range of colours, finishes and tones makes the palette extremely versatile, whether you want to create easy daily looks or more complex combinations. The eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented, smooth and last well on the lids.  Win-win for me!
