I recently purchased MAC Strobe Cream in Gold Lite after seeing the product used as part of a MAC Masterclass event (you can read more about the event here).  I thought it looked – and sounded like – an extremely versatile product when I saw it being showcased at the event.   I’ve read so much about this product being amazing in magazines and online, so I thought it would be fun to try it out myself.

I’m so pleased I decided to try it out as I have been enjoying using it so much! This product gives my face a subtle ‘lit from within’, glow, making it look incredibly healthy and naturally glowy.

The cream adds in a little extra moisture to my skin and absorbs quickly to leave a non-greasy, smooth, glowy finish. I think it is a great option for anyone who wants to add some extra radiance and moisture to their face without having any tackiness or too much dewiness.

There are five shades of Strobe Cream available, as well as a mini version of one shade (Pink Lite). The range of shades means you can choose whichever one you prefer or one which works well with your skin tone.

Golden Pink Grapefruit (Using Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been enjoying playing around with the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette recently and came up with this orange, gold and magenta eyeshadow look.

Tip: If you want to add extra drama to this look, you could add in some eyeliner along the upper lashline.  Black would add extra definition and sharpness to the eyes, whilst a coloured eyeliner (like purple) would give a sultry, ‘pop’ to the look.

B and M Discount Store Bargain: NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I recently found and purchased the NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette from B&M for only £5.99, with a usual RRP of £17.99.  I’ve always looked at this particular powder blusher palette in Boots and so it was fantastic being able to get it at a fraction of the price! The palette contains a wide range of shades, so it’s a fantastic choice for anyone looking to try out a range of different colours, for travelling or if you are just starting out in make-up.

Stay tuned for a post on the NYX Plush Gel Lipsticks! I found a triple pack of Plush Gel Lipsticks for only £6.99 in Watt Brothers, which is the usual RRP price for just one lipstick!

Spotlight on MAC: Vivid Coral and Purple (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this look, I used peachy-coral, copper and plum MAC eyeshadows on the lid, followed by a slick of NYX Vivid Brights Coloured Liquid Liner in Vivid Violet along the upper lashline (you can read more on this product here).  I really love how the purple liner contrasts and ‘pops out’ against the peach and copper tones on the lid.

To complement the look: I used  Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in Sweet Tea (click here to read more about this product), Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Sparkling Bellini (click here to read more about this product) and Loreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in 464 Color Hype.

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).  As part of the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection, there are powder highlighters which are also available in the permanent Kiko range.  I already have the Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne, which was included in the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection.  This highlighter gives such a beautiful, natural glow to the face that I think it is well worth a post!

Sparkling Silvery Taupe (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immaculate in the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette is a really interesting shade and one I couldn’t wait to try out in a look.  At first glance, it looks like a light, bright silver but on application, it has taupe and tan inflections to it, depending on how it catches the light.  For this look, I used Immaculate on the lid to give a pop of brightness, along with olive green and chocolate elsewhere to give some depth to the eyes.  

To complement the look, I used MAC Metallic Lipstick in Forbidden Romance on the lips (a metallic warm brownish-coppery rose), Too Faced Love Flush Blusher in Love Hangover (satin peachy-pink) on the cheeks and Anastasia Glow Powder in Starburst (pale metallic pearly-pink) to highlight.  If you want something with a little more impact, MAC Chili lipstick (matte orangey-brown) works really well with this look too.
