YSL Rouge Volupte - Rose Caresse/Pink Caresse 9

Another Duty Free splurge. I wouldn't normally spend so much money on a lipstick, but i did have spare currency and i've always been curious to see if the actual product was as luxurious as the pretty YSL packaging.
Yes it is!

The colour itself is a berry pink which gives a creamy full coverage that lasts.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush - Exposed

A beige blush with a flattering mix of pink. One step up from a bronzer, but much more flattering and natural than using a bronzer as blush.
Love it, Nuff said.

HourGlass Ambient Lighting Powder - Diffused Light

Ambient Lighting Powder

The power of ambient—or surrounding—light makes a true difference to our appearance. Think about how the complexion appears in soft candlelight compared to harsh fluorescent light.
This idea is at the heart of Hourglass new Ambient Lighting Powder, as each powder delivers a soft focus effect that emulates a different flattering light source.

Key Benefits:
  • Captures, diffuses and softens the way light reflects on your skin
  • Utilizes cutting-edge photo-luminescent technology—transparent micron-size, color correcting particles—to alter and refine the appearance of the complexion
  • Delivers a multi-dimensional luminescence to every skin tone, making it appear younger, unlike traditional powders, which simply sit on the skin to cover imperfections
  • Free of parabens, talc, fragrance, nano-particles and gluten
  • Quote taken from the SpaceNK website.

  • Subtle yellow undertone

    Very hard to see the swatch in the picture above because the powder gives such a natural un-obvious effect. It can be used light or layered and it is so fine that i haven't been able to cake my makeup at all using this. It is pricey, but if you are after a product such as this i recommend you purchase it.
    The compact feels luxurious and i'm certain the product shall last a long time looking at how much is in the pan.

    BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick- Live Large

    BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lipstick in Live Large is a stunning plum pink. It glides on to give complete colour in two swipes.
    It lasts ages without fading, not taking into account eating drinking and pouting.
    I'd compare the formula to the premium quaility of Chanel's Rouge Allure. I am going into town this afternoon to choose another shade from this range using my Boots Points as i love it so much.

    Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Palettes - Walking on Eggshells & Comfort Zone

    A small part of my mental wish list of makeup to look for whilst on holiday in America was some Wet N Wild eyeshadows.  Undoubtably i came out with these two gems when i visited Target.

    Walking on Eggshells, a nude trio palette and Comfort Zone, eight shadow palette of light to dark neutrals.

    I hate to use the word but they are so 'buttery'. The best eyeshadow formula i've ever used. If you are a dunce at blending eyeshadows like me, these eyeshadows seem to make it much easier.

    They are indeed very soft. So much so that when i was swatching the powder i pressed alittle bit too hard in the green and it crumbled (see below). I was so careful packaging these in my suitcase traveling home and this happens to me when i blimmin' swatch them *sob*.

    Apart from how delicate these eyeshadows are, i do dislike the packaging. 
    You can tell that all costs are put into the product which is a plus point but i would love to see a premium line in this brand for makeup packaging snobs like me. Ohh and for Wet N Wild to come to the UK. Please!!!!

    Almay Liquid LipBalm

    Almay's new Liquid LipBalms really are blimmin' stunning. Not only are the colours amazing but they smell and taste like vanilla.
    They are indeed a lip balm, they feel non greasy but super smooth on the lips and they soothed my pucker excellently when i had a spot of sun burn on my lips during my trip to Florida.
    The colours can be applied so that there is a sheer hint of colour, or layers for a more pigmented look.

    The colours below in order are -
    Lilac Love, Rosy Lipped & Apricot Pucker.

    More shades can be seen HERE priced at $4.99 (which converts as approx. £3.20)
