Every autumn season I get super excited to wear make-up and experiment with different colors. It’s the end of the summer and wearing bold lip colors is totally acceptable without being judged. Personally. I’m not really a matte lip kinda gal but lately all I want to wear is matte lips for some reason. For these colors I tried to incorporate as many different textures and price ranges from drugstore to high end. Find out which lip colors you should be rocking this autumn!
I know I’m probably the last person to review this palette but I still wanted to share my thoughts and swatches. Ever since I have gotten this palette, I haven’t stopped using it. Lately I’m really into warm and brown orangy eyeshadow colors so this palette has been perfect for me. I think Urban Decay never disappoints when it comes to the pigmentation of their eyeshadows, including this “Heat” palette.
I recently got my hands on the much anticipated “Everlasting Lip Liners” by Kat von D. I’m a huge fan of KVD make-up, their products never disappoint and I never find them misleading wether it’s by the names of the products or the hype around it. The lip liners collection features 30 shades in total. They range from a wide selection of colors, almost half of the collection features nude shades for different types of complexion. Despite the fact that this collection features many nude shades, I find them very versatile. The darker “nude” shades can be great as a base for medium brown and deep dark complexions. For the lighter & fairer complexions, these can be used as brown, taupe or rosewood liners.
Swatching make-up products is one of my favorite thing to do. When I got the full range of these high pencils last week at the Hung Vanngo masterclass, I couldn’t wait to swatch them! Usually I’m not that big on eye pencils but after trying these colors, I’m excited to start using more eye pencils again.
In case you missed it, Smashbox has released a matte lipstick collection in 20 beautiful shades. In my previous post “New beauty launches I’m excited to try” I featured two lipsticks from this collection. I mentioned that I would do a separate post with swatches of all shades. Below you’ll find hand & lip swatches + my review on the new “Always on liquid lipsticks”.
Dior has recently released the Addict Ultra-Glosses for Spring 2016, the fresh colours and ultra-glossy effect are a great way to create clean and fresh make-up looks during this season. I’ve tried out these six shades and here’s what I think about it…
New lipstick launches are always exciting to me. There’s nothing I love to do more than swatching and playing around with new lipsticks. I’m very excited about this launch in particular; Luxe Lip Color by Bobbi Brown. It has a brand new formula with 30 shades! I love it when brands create a wide range of colours, there’s truly a perfect shade for everyone. Other than the shades, I like the packaging as well. They’re light-weighted, practical and luxurious at the same time.
I’m a huge fan of MAC’s Viva Glam collaborations. The combination of a lipstick + glittery gloss always creates the ultimate lip party. With the latest Viva Glam edition, MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with Ariana Grande for Spring 2016. I was really surprised to see the brand has decided to go for such a bold colour with their Ariana Grande collab. I’ve never really seen her with a lip colour this bold before, so I was curious to find out more about the formula and pigmentation.
The “Mi Vida Loca” eyeshadow palette by Kat von D is a limited edition, especially designed for the Holiday season. The palette features 24 highly pigmented eyeshadows varying from different colours and textures. I personally think this palette is a dream for every make-up artist to work with. There’s a wide variety of colours and their SUPER pigmented! Below you’ll find the swatches of each eyeshadow.
You guys know how much I love to swatch and blog about lipsticks. I recently got some beautiful new lipsticks and I wanted to share them with you.
