M.A.C Mini Haul from Italy

Hello beauties,

Yes I am finally back, my life has become so busy in the last few months that I barely have time to myself, imagine writing on this blog. But recently I started to miss it and I wish to start posting again. Being that I have quite a hectic lifestyle with a full time job, singing rehearsals, and spending time with my loving new bf, little time is spent for blogging. I am still the same girl, obsessed with anything beauty and make-up and I wish to show you my latest buys.

In the December I went to Italy for a week with my besties, we stayed in Treviso and visited some of the most beautiful cities, Venice, Mestre, Padova and Verona. When we went to Verona the city of Romeo and Juliet, love was definitely in the air as I encountered a small M.A.C store. Being that I was on a tight budget I bought what I have been craving to have for a long time, MORE LIPSTICKS :D.

So I got another Creme Cup because the one I have has been used quite a lot, not only for myself but even my clients. It is a beautiful light pink shade which is perfect for a Wedding look and even when you have smokey eyes.  Have a look at the review about this gorgeous lipstick.

Another beautiful lipstick which caught my eye immediately is All fired up from the Retro Matte range, a beautiful pink toned red shade that stays on forever. The pigmentation is divine and the colour is the die for. It is very similar to the ruby woo, when it comes to longevity and pigmentation. It just varies in colour. Review for Ruby woo.

The third lipstick I got is the beautiful Violetta, from the Amplified Creme range. Violetta is a beautiful bold violet lipstick with a creamy texture. Like all the other creamy lipsticks they glide easily on the lips, doesn’t dry the lips or cause lips to chap. I am very happy I got this gorgeous lipstick.

Last but not least, being that I love bold colours i got myself a Rebel. A lovely plum colour with purple undertones, also from the Amplified Creme range. This is such a daring yet sexy colour which looks good on anyone with pouty big lips. It definitely deserved a Selfie :P.

ALL FIRED UP. VIOLETTA, REBEL, CREMECUP

 

Apart from these gorgeous lipsticks, I thought I’d buy myself a new shade of blusher. Being that I already have the DollyMix and Breezy, which are on the pink and red tones, I thought of choosing something different. So I got the Sheertone Blush, Breath of Plum, very suitable for winter and for anyone with a light skintone. It applies very naturally to the skin, and it has a very light and soft formula. I do highly recommend it,and any of their blushers as they are long lasting, I bought my first blusher about 2 or 3 years ago and it’s still pretty full. Good value for money, that’s for sure.

Well I hope you liked my Mini M.A.C haul, I shall start posting new short reviews about product I got recently and hopefully some new Make-up looks.

Much love

Purple Breeze – Make-Up look

Hey guys,

Sorry for not posting much this week, but it was one of the busiest weeks ever. I am part of the ZHN Symphonik Choir and this weekend we had two successful concerts. This week was full of events and rehearsals, that is why I didn’t post much. But here I am with a new look for you guys :).

1

For this look I used a mixture of vibrant colours that fall under the colour purple gradient. I called this look purple breeze because it’s like that lovely feeling you get when there is breeze in the midst of this hot summer. The colours themselves look vibrant and refreshing like a breeze.

  • For the inner corner of the eyes I used a vibrant yellow colour, then blended it with light purple pinkish eye-shadow on the middle of the lid.  (e.l.f marble palette)
  • Further on I applied a blueish purple and a navy blue colour on the crease.
  • The eye look is definitely not complete without a black eyeliner and mascara.
  • As for the lips I used the Nicky Minajr Viva glam and for the cheeks the e.l.f bronzer and M.A.C Sheertone blusher breezy.

Well guys I hope you like this look, if you do I would appreciate a like or comment down below :). Next week I promise to be more active and post more interesting posts for you guys, keep posted

Orange Infusion- Make-up Look

Hey guys,

So here is a new make up look for you guys. It is very similar to a previous look I have done before, but with a new  summery twist. I used a mixture of orange and golden colours that look great in this Sunny weather.

Orange2

Orange1

Here are the step by step instructions and products I used for this look:

  1. The first thing I applied was a nice beige/white eye-shadow under the brows from the MUA naked palette.
  2. I used a range of colours for this make up look using the e.l.f palette, starting with an orangy pink in the inner corner of the eyelid and then using a vibrant orange further on.
  3. On the middle of the lid I blended the orange colour with a bit of gold and then faded the gold with a black colour on the crease.
  4. I also applied some orange coulour on top of the crease and under the lower lashes.
  5. For the cheeks I used the e.l.f baked bronzer and the M.A.C sheertone blusher called breezy.
  6. As for the lips I used chloe by NYX.

Well guys I do hope you like this look, I will try to be more active on my blog as much as I can with more reviews and make-up looks. Thank you for following guys

M.A.C Sheertone Shimmer Blush – Breezy

Hey guys,

My Mac reviews are soon coming to an end as I only have the last 2 to review. I will defiantly try to buy some other products from MAC so I can really try their full range of make up. So now I will review the fabulous Sheer tone Shimmer Blush in Breezy. I usually do the pros and cons of every product but there aren’t any cons for me to say about this product.

DSC00803 I wanted a nice blusher which is in between pink and red, and the breezy colour was the right choice. It is a perfect color to wear in winter however can also look nice in summer if you use it as a contouring blusher. It is really soft, blend-able and pigmented. The blusher isn’t that shimmery and it has more like a glow to it.  The staying power is very good of this blusher and it looks just lovely when swatched. What I like is that is when I apply it with my brush not a lot of product comes of like some other cheap blushers I have, but enough to apply.  Also the packaging is very nice simple and sleek with a transparent lid, so you can see the color of the blush.

DSC00809I think I covered all the important facts of this product. I love this blusher and I will definitely purchase again and maybe some other colors of the mac collection. I do recommend this blusher to anyone as if looks good on fair skin and even on dark skin, as I have seen from other reviews.

That is all for now, keep posted for more and thank you for following
