Star buys from the new releases from Wet n Wild

A few weeks ago I was sent a number of products to try out from the Wet n Wild new releases. Long time readers of the blog will know that I am a big Wet n Wild fan and many of their products are in my regular makeup rotation. Like with any makeup brand, there will be products that suit you and some that don’t. For today’s post I have picked out my star buys from the new releases that not only hold their own with other affordable brands, but in some cases rival that of their higher end counterparts. Megaliner Liquid eyeliner When it comes to eyeliner, I am pretty…

New Autumn releases from Mac

The Autumn is by far my favourite time of the year. As a teacher, I see September as the start of a new year, rather than January. For me, September is all about fresh starts, new clothes and of course the Autumn beauty releases. At this time of year I am ready to leave behind the pink lips and barely there makeup and instead I am ready to embrace bold plum toned lips and a slightly more intense makeup look. This September Mac have really ramped up their new collection releases with both permanent and Limited Edition releases. As Mac collections have a tendency to fly off the shelves quickly,…

Too Faced Warm Glow Candlelight glow highlighting powder duo

If you’re all about a highlight that you can see from space, then this is not the review for you. However, if you’re into more of a subtle glow, that won’t leave you shimmering like a disco ball, then you are right where you need to be. The highlighter comes in a really cute compact that contains quite a decent size amount of product and a good size mirror. The packaging itself is plastic, so doesn’t scream luxury, but it is very pretty looking, so that can be forgiven. In fact it almost feels like a shame to use it, as there is a lovely fancy chandelier embossed on the…

Seventeen Skin Wow 3 way highlighter glow and prime

Don’t you just love when a product takes you by surprise and worms it’s way into your heart? Well that is exactly what has happened with the Seventeen Skin Wow 3 way highlighter. As the name suggests the Seventeen Skin Wow 3 way highlighter is a multi tasking product. First off it can be used as a primer to help keep your foundation in place. I found that it did a decent job as a primer, but what I really liked about it was when it was used in this way was the beautiful glow it gave to your skin underneath your foundation. As you can see from the swatch above…

My top 3 powder highlighters

Lets face it, when it comes to highlighters the more glow I can get the better. Lately I am an absolute fiend for highlighters and I am constantly on the hunt for a new, better product. I have to partly blame Jaclyn Hill for my highlighter obsession, as that girl always has the most unbelievable glow. In fact on July 2nd she is releasing her own highlighter with Becca Cosmetics, in the shade Champagne Pop. I mean just look at it.!!! I have already set a reminder in my phone to buy it the day it comes out, as this baby will sell out fast! To help you track down…

We need to talk about Mary Lou (manizer)

For a long time I wouldn’t give into the hype surrounding The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer. Far too many people were raving about it, that I thought it might be too good to be true and I felt I had enough highlighters that I didn’t need to check if the hype was true or not. That was until a few weeks, when I was at  a bloggers event, Dee from Viva Adnois took out her Mary Lou Manizer and I swatched it. Holy Mary mother of God!! I now get what all the hype was about and more! The Mary Lou Manizer is a smooth, buttery and extremely pigmented highlighter.…

Mac Prep + Prime Highlighter pen

Mac Prep + Prime Oh sweet baby Jesus in the manger, I may have found a new holy grail cream highlighter. Each time I  twist this little baby, I can hear the angles in heaven singing a song of praise for it’s complete and utter beauty. Mac prep + prime highlighting pen really is a thing of beauty. I am a huge fan of cream products for contouring as I feel it gives a much more natural finish. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my powders and I have a feeling at the moment that I won’t be able to live my life much longer without Nars Laguna bronzer, but…
