Illamasqua Sculpting Palette Honest Review

I am so excited for this! Illamasqua recently launched a few products, one of them being a Sculpting Palette. I just had to get my hands on it and try it out and let me tell you at first i thought
However when i tried it a few more times, I honestly can not be without it! 

 In the palette, you get 6 shades. A highlight (shimmery) Cream highlight, 4 contour/sculpting shades
L to R
Rush Cirrus Heroine Nimbus Steal Create

Personally i use, Heroine Nimbus & Steal to sculpt and the shade Create as a blush

This retails at £44, yes pricey is what I thought!
Is it worth the price? To be totally honest with you, i have seen other sculpting palettes and i have never reached for them ( buy them) I've always been a bit hesitant, so considering I don't own a sculpting palette, i took the dive and bought this! 


The shades are not very pigmented, apart from the shimmer highlight. I love that it is not so pigmented, I know I can create a soft look & if I want to go heavier, I can build up on it!

I hope this has helped anyone who is considering to buy it :)

Want to see how I use it? Watch the video now :)

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick Review

Okay okay okay, let me start with saying, these lipsticks are AMAZING!

These lipsticks are affordable, long lasting, and there are different shades to choose from. I have two shades:
(L) Matte Tease
( R ) Matte Bare

Both these shades are the perfect "nudes " for warm skin tones & perfect if you wear a darker lipliner underneath! Love them!

They are matte, but do not worry, they're not the drying type of matte, it's the moisturising type of matte, okay okay not that moisturising but trust me, try them and you will know what i mean.

Here are the swatches:

( L ) Matte Tease
( R ) Matte Bare

Now you're probably wondering, where can I buy these from?
If you're from the states, i'm guessing all over! I bought these from Walgreens
If you're from the UK, here is the link:

If you have tried them, let me know what you think of them!

Hide dark circles & shadows with Illamasqua Cream Pigment - Emerge

Dark circles and shadows are a pain! Dark circles can be caused by many things, lack of water, lack of iron, lack of sleep. To hide them can be a pain too, its all about knowing how to hide them, and what to do.
My personal favourite corrector to hide dark shadows is Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Emerge 
This is a salmon coloured cream pigment & is amazing to apply on the area to hide the dark shadows.

Now this will work if you have tanned skin , brown, olive toned skin, if you are lighter this might just look at bit pink! So do test it out at the store before buying!

Here is how to apply the cream pigment :

Start off by applying the cream pigment, make sure you do not apply too much, because it can crease, so apply small amounts then build up on it, when you can see the shadow is no longer showing, you're done! Don't get carried away though, i know how easy that is!

Apply your foundation on top or concealer, either 1 will be fine, apply it as usual but make sure you do not rub over the area too much, you do not want to move the cream pigment :)

That is it! you are done! Apply your powder and everything else and ta-da! Dark shadows gone!

Must have everyday makeup products || Winter Makeup

I am a lover of makeup, makeup and i go back so many years, so to use just a few products has always hard. However lately i have managed to pull out a few items & have them as my to go to winter products.

I know this isn't clear, but don't you worry! All products will be listed and the reason WHY i love these!

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - Stromboli
I am in love with this foundation, now let me tell you a little bit about my skin! I have sensitive skin, now when i sensitive, i mean sensitive, i react to a lot of products and it can get really bad!
This foundation like i said i love, because it sits really nice on my skin, i do not break out in zits nor do i get a rash! It also has turmeric in it, so that is a bonus! When its cold or hot, this stays put and i look fresh as anything!

Illamasqua Cream Pigment - Emerge
This is brilliant to apply on any dark shadows, under eyes / shadows around the mouth or acne scars. Once you apply your foundation on top of it, along with your concealer, all the darkness will be gone! Its magic!

Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer - Ginger & Custard
Now now now! These concealers are amazing, they cover everything up nicely! It has really nice coverage, blends really good & the best part is i don't see a lot of creases!
Ginger is more a warm tone and Custard is a shade lighter, so i use that as my highlight! Either 1 is amazing!

Makeup Revolution - Radiance Powder Breathe
This is a recent buy, at first i thought it might be a tad bit light for my skin, however i was wrong! This give a beautiful glow, without looking so bright! It is not a highlighter, it gives a nice radiance glow to the skin! I would love to try the golden shade Glow! Oh it is also so affordable!

Milani Brow Kit - Medium
This i bought on my honeymoon to Las Vegas! It is really nice if you want a natural looking brow! The shadows you can use as an eyeshadow too, so if you feel like an all over brown use it! Im not too sure if this is available in the UK.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder - Warm Beige
This i LOVE! It is the best powder i have ever used, it keep my foundation on longer and the amazing part is.. I do not break a sweat in it! Perfect!! So affordable too!

You can see in the image there is a blusher and mascara, i alternate with other mascaras and blusher, so I felt as though i do not need to rave about them, not saying they're not good! The products i have mentioned are my MUST haves and i think you should try them too if you haven't done already!

Thank you for stopping by!
