I still haven’t got my October box, but the November one has arrived without any hiccups, so here it is!
it’s been so long I don’t even know if I can still do this…
so, in the little breaks between rehearsals and running around for dubbing appointments, I still got to buy some new makeup, and most of it was influenced by, of course, influencers.
here’s a long video (of course I had to start with a bang) on some of the new products I’m playing with.
In a world where colour eyeshadows were either too expensive or not pigmented at all, these little 10€ palettes came to save the day. I remember Sam from Pixiwoo doing looks with them non-stop. That’s a trip down memory lane for ya, with 3 looks to get inspiration from!
This one was so raved that, as soon as I test-drived my sample (as I should always do, impulsive buyer me…) I had to make a video on it.
This foundation retails for around 40$, around 40€, or 39£ — for 50ml —, comes in 40 shades with 4 different undertones, it’s not cruelty free and claims highly customisable coverage, a natural finish, and resisting through water and sweat.
It’s widely available in counters worldwide, and I found it online at Selfridges and, of course, Sephora US.
Sometimes I like to look at my beauty stash by brand to see what is my curated selection from it. Clinique is a brand I never noticed I had a strong relationship with, until I realised that some of their products are actually re-re-re-re-purchases. In this day and age of trends and companies coming out with new launches that they shove down your throat, this means A LOT (quite more than stuff I buy once and move on to the next new shiny equivalent from any other brand).
Here’s my curated selection of besties from Clinique (and a new fling I’m into at the moment):
This month’s box is all about Look Fantastic’s 4th anniversary.
Let’s see if the products inside are great presents for their customers.
Also, as always, I’ll let you know what I loved, hated and mehed from last month’s box.
I love the feeling of going through a whole bottle, tube or jar of product. what I don’t like is when the product is so good I want to repurchase it but it’s expense. dang it, why can’t I have it all?!
a new series has arrived… and what a start. just a week after I filmed everything, Urban Decay announced that they’re discontinuing their iconic Naked Palette, which is precisely the first one to be featured on my little Post-Youtube Beauty Hall of Fame.
it’s a piece of makeup History, and has marked countless first steps of millions of people in makeup. it’s no small feat to be the responsible for the complete rethinking of the concept of a makeup palette that is “beginner-friendly” throughout the whole industry. plus, this palette alone launched dozens of talented at-home make up artists into stardom.
featuring a pretty nice assortment of neutral but versatile shades, I dusted it off and tried to see if it still lived up to its cult status — by doing 4 different looks.
here it is, the Look Fantastic selection for this month.
and, as usual, my feelings on last month’s products…
Some people ask me why, of all things overseas, I keep purchasing stuff from Colour Pop.
Well, even with the steep customs, each product comes out at around 8€. and the quality of almost every single item I bought is top notch.
Enter the Lux Lipsticks. I’ve mentioned so many products on my channel, now I’ve decided to make a dedicated video just to my little lip wardrobe. The formula is high-end equivalent, the packaging is not only cute but expensive-feeling. They have so many colours it’s easy to make a curated selection of lipsticks for any occasion.
They can be used sheered out or full-impact with one swipe, mixed for new colours and topped up with some cool glosses for extra shine. Despite my lips being quite dry, these lipsticks — especially the bolder colours — are quite forgiving.
All in all, I haven’t found anything like these within this price range. So let my addiction run free.
