I haven’t yet played around with Rosary from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette and was keen to try it out. For this look, I used it alongside Sacred Heart (a peachy-coral shade) and Exodus (a light acid green) to create a soft, colourful effect on the eyes. I really like how Exodus (the lime green shade) pops out in the inner part of the lid.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post). I picked up one of the new blushers from the limited edition ‘Metal Fusion’ collection in the shade 05 Outrageous Tangerine. I am glad I got this blusher as it looks so beautiful and glowy on the cheeks!

I recently popped into the Kiko Milano store as it has been a while since I have been in there. It was so much browsing and looking at the new limited edition collections, as well as their permanent make-up range. I ended up picking up four products: two from their new limited edition collections and two from their regular make-up line.
I’m going to put up posts on each of these products over the coming weeks, so check back for updates! Click here to read about 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette from the new limited edition ‘Green Me’ collection.

Metallic make-up is big this season and lips are no exception. MAC recently released limited edition Metallic finish lipsticks as part of their lipstick range. I chose three shades – Forbidden Romance, Disobedient and Coral Optix – as I found them flattering and totally different from anything else that I have in my make-up collection.

I used the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (click here to read more about this product) to create this quick and easy golden peach combination. I wanted to create something which looked fresh and bright on the eyes, compared to the smokey, sultry blue combination featured in my first Saint and Sinner look post here. I used only one brush (the MAC 239) to create this look as well, keeping things nice and simple.

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.
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!
When I was starting to wear make-up in my teens, Rimmel was my go-to brand as it was affordable and reasonably priced. However, I started to veer away from Rimmel as I got older and began trying out other make-up brands. The other day, though, I saw a YouTube collaboration video featuring Karima Kimmie and Michelle Crossan showcasing looks using the relatively new Rimmel ‘The Only 1’ Lipstick in the matte formulation, and that brought the brand back to my attention.
The lipstick that Michelle used – 120 – really caught my eye as it was such a beautiful, coral-red shade. What also really appealed to me was that they found the matte texture to be incredibly comfortable, moisturising and smooth to wear on the lips. I don’t tend to wear matte lipsticks much as I can find them very drying on the lips. So when I heard that these lipsticks felt so smooth on the lips and I saw this incredible colour, well, I just had to try them out! Boots also had a ‘2 for £10’ across the Rimmel make-up range, so I picked up another of ‘The Only 1’ lipsticks to try out, this time in their traditional (satin-like) formulation.
For this look, I used coral eyeshadow in the crease of the eye to add some subtle warmth to a bluish-violet combination. Adding a little blackberry eyeshadow in the outer lid helped tie the coral and blue-violet eyeshadows together and added some extra dimension to the look.
