Acid Green Devil (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really fancied trying out Vestment (a deep metallic blackened teal) with Exodus (a light matte acid green) together and came up with this eyeshadow combination.  I added in Devil (a matte orange) into the crease to add some warmth and a punchy twist to the look.

To complement the look, I used Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lolita II’ (a medium warm terracotta-chestnut) on the lips and The Balm ‘Balm Springs’ blusher (a matte medium dusty, earthy rose) on the cheeks.  You can read more, see photos and view swatches of Lolita II here.

Golden Relic (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Kat Von D ‘Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette’ launched in October at Debenhams, it took me a wee while to decide whether or not to purchase it.  Not because of the shade selection or the quality (it’s amazing on both counts!) but due to the £52 price tag.  The palette costs more than I would usually spend on an eyeshadow palette and so I really wanted to make sure it would be a good investment for me before forking out for it.  Now that I have it, I am soooooo glad that I got it!!!!

Here is some new make-up news for this week:

Benefit is launching a new boxed powder blush! The newest offering in the range will be Galifornia, which is described as a ‘sunny golden pink blusher’.  The idea behind the shade is that it captures the glow of the ‘Californian sunshine in a box’.  Benefit’s boxed blushers usually feature different scents and this one is no different.  Galifornia is said to feature notes of pink grapefruit and vanilla.  According to the official Benefit UK pages, Galifornia will be released on 11 February.  Can’t wait to check this one out as I have a weakness for pink blushers with gold hues! You can read more on the official Benefit UK pages here.

Jerrod Blandino recently posted a sneak peek of Too Faced’s new Love Light Highlighters on his Instagram page.  The highlighters follow Too Faced’s classic heart shaped design for cheek products but this time, come in metallic looking compacts.  I love highlighters, so I can’t wait to check these out! The launch date is advertised as March 2017 so I imagine these will follow in the UK later in the year.  You can see the sneak peek photo here.

Urban Decay has just released a new line called Vice Liquid Lipsticks.  There are 30 shades available across two different finishes: Metallized and Comfort Matte.  The liquid lipsticks are currently available in the USA (click here to see more on the official UD site).  I don’t currently have information on when these will be available in the UK but I will update this post when I find out.  

If you are a fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s cult lip liner Pillow Talk, you might be excited to hear she has released a Matte Revolution lipstick in the same shade.  Exciting if you are a lover of this nude-pink liner and want to colour your pout with a matching lip colour! You can find Pillow Talk lipstick here.

Charlotte Tilbury has also released another new lipstick shade, with the name suggested by social media followers: K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in ‘Valentine’.  Valentine is described as a ‘petal-rose’ pink which gives you a soft, full and kissable looking pout on application.  You can find Valentine lipstick here.

MAC is coming out with a number of colourful lip and lash product offerings for Spring 2017.  The ‘In Extra Dimension Mascara’ launch includes vibrant and colourful mascara colours, ranging from yellow, orange, red, blue and green.  You can read more, see photos and see swatches on ChicProfile.com here.  The ‘ColourRocker’ launch contains 28 vibrant matte lipsticks, ranging from yellows, pinks, greens, teals, greys and blacks.  You can read more on Temptalia here.
