NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette

I would like to thank NARS so much for sending me this beautiful palette
before it even came out!

These shadows are extremely pigmented and are very easy to blend out, not
to mention that the palette is so versatile and dazzling. I love the range
of colours in this palette, they go from warm neutrals to pink and brown
tones. These shadows are so buttery, smooth and the colour pay off of
these shadows are extremely excellent. It makes it easy for you to create
looks when your shadows are pigmented, and a little goes a long way.
Another thing I love about this palette is that you can create both day
and night looks due to the variety of colours. The packing of this palette
is amazing; I love the fact that it comes with a mirror because it makes it more convenient for someone who is always on the go.

This palette will be exclusively previewed on Sephora.ca & Sephora.com on Cyber Monday (November 27th, 2017). Make sure to get this palette as it would be
a nice little treat for yourself because you know you gotta treat yo self
first and on the plus side it would also be a great Christmas gift.

#FauxFilter Foundation by Huda Beauty

EVERYONE was talking about this foundation before it was even released. And me being a makeup JUNKIE, obviously I had tested it out! When I heard it was matte and FULL coverage I was all about it. I had high expectations for this foundation based on Huda’s snaps and Instagram posts leading up to it’s release, and they did live up to expectation. I was beyond SHOOK at the coverage this foundation gave me. I have combination skin so it’s always been difficult for me to find that perfect foundation that gives that smooth skin look that you get from Snapchat filters. This foundation exactly did that for me. Huda mentioned that 1-2 pumps are enough for your entire face to be full coverage, and surprisingly she wasn’t lying!! It usually takes 2-3 pumps for me to get as much coverage as I need for my acne prone skin, but this foundation did it with just 1-2 pumps. Huda suggests just powdering the oily spots. I did just that with my Mac Studio Fix Powder, and I was so impressed at how long it lasted! I thought this foundation would have made me look super cakey because of the coverage and it being matte, but I was wrong! I wore it to work for 8 hours straight without touching up my face, and it still looked amazing for that amount of time. Usually my foundation starts to fall apart and look odd after a long day, but this foundation kept me looking good all throughout the day. Even my friends were asking, “What foundation are you wearing today? Your foundation looks so pretty”. The foundation is so silky, smooth, blends right in and the coverage was just perfect, I was able to hide all my acne scars with just the foundation! There’s a fragrance to this foundation, but it’s nothing too strong. It actually smells really good. The colour match is spot on; my foundation colour is Amaretti 310G. I have worn just about every foundation at Sephora and this one is right up there with my favourites (Fenty Foundation and UD All Nighter), this foundation is my number one favourite right now!!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Holiday 2017

This package was sent to me by ABH, and I am always SO grateful for the opportunity to test out their products.

PRISM:

These shadows are EXTREMELY pigmented. The pigmentation is amazing just like all their shadows, so I wasn’t shocked about that! When I first saw the palette I was like “ahh am I really going to wear these shades?” But when I saw the palette in real life and played with it, I feel in love with the colours.

M a t t e s:

The mattes are really soft, however they do create a bit of fall out, as with the Modern Renaissance and Subculture palette so that’s normal. All the mattes would work perfectly in the crease as a transition shade. The mattes are very buttery and soft. If you feel that there is fall out when you apply the mattes, what I like to do is do my eye shadow first and then do the rest of my face later. You can always clean off any shadow residue with a make up wipe/remover.

S h i m m e r s:

The shimmer shades are perfect for the season! There is a different range between the shimmers making the palette versatile to create that perfect evening look. For example, there is a silver shade, gold, rose gold, navy blue, metallic-y purple, dark green and copper. All these shimmer shades would work perfectly for a night out, an evening event or a wedding reception.

Overall, the colours are very different and way out of my comfort zone but they are trendy and beautiful. Like just imagine how gorgeous, Eden would look in the crease and Throne on the lid…SO NICE (Heart eyes) these shadows blend like a dream and that’s the most important part!

 

BLUSH KITS:

I am so in love with these blushes, especially the Radiant Blush Kit. Tbh, I’ve never really been a huge blush fanatic, it’s not a huge part of my collection. I started off my using my sister’s Nars blush, Orgasm, lmao! If I would have to choose a blush, it would be the ones included in the Jaclyn Hill x Becca Cosmetics palette.

When I first saw them, the colours looked really intense in the pan, so I was afraid to use it! The pigmentation is to die for, with this product, a little goes a long way. When applied, they look beautiful and flawless on the skin. If you apply too much (like i did , lol!), the product is very blendable. When using this product, you need a small amount of the product and a light hand to do the trick. All four colours in the Radiant Blush Kit are lovely on their own, and can even be stacked on each other to create your very own custom, intense presence (if that’s what you want).

I like the fact that they came out with two kits! One for lighter skin tones and one for darker skin tones! I did try the Gradient Blushes, but they did not work well for me, it looked like I had mud on my skin, the colours did not suit my skin tone at all!

 

 

MINI LIPSTICKS:

Finally MINI lipsticks by ABH! If you guys didn’t know by now, my favorite liquid lipsticks are by ABH. So the fact that they came out 3 mini liquid lipsticks made me oh so happy! Hopefully they come out with more! The reasons why I love mini lipsticks are because they are so much easier to put in your bag when you’re on the go, I don’t have to put the full liquid lipstick in my side bag’s that can only fit one credit card and a phone, get what I mean?

The colours in this set are Dazed, Bittersweet & Hudson. The lipsticks are super pigmented and go on smoothly just like her other ones; the formula is consistent! The shades are amazing, your stand out unique red shade, a brown and a nude. This set is perfect for a holiday gift!

 

 

GLOW KIT:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits are my absolute obsession; if you don’t believe me you should check out my Instagram page and see all the pictures I’ve posted. This highlighter palette features 4 staple highlighter shades that everyone can use. If you’re one of those people who loves their glow to be poppin, then you will love this palette. The formulas of these highlighters are amazing, just like their other ones! They’re incredibly soft, creamy and blend like a dream. In terms of pigmentation, these highlighters are intensely pigmented in one swipe. You can use any setting spray, to further intensify the highlight if that is what you are going for! In my opinion, they don’t need it; they are pretty intense on their own. These highlighters can be used for more than just cheekbone highlight. I use them for eyeshadows, inner corner highlight and brow bone highlight.

 

NEW LIPSTICKS:

Anastasia Beverly Hills released 3 new liquid lipsticks shades that are so perfect for fall! In the colours, Starfish, Trouble and Rock Sand.

The liquid lipsticks have a creamy consistency which allows them to glide onto the lips so smoothly with a complete matte finish to top it off. All shades are extremely pigmented with the first application. I usually put 1 – 2 layers to avoid any tackiness and I am good to go. The lipsticks are comfortable to wear, but they are matte lipsticks so I always like to prep my lips with an exfoliator and a lip balm before application! These lipsticks are very long lasting! Not to mention that I love the formula and how long wearing they are and I’m crazy obsessed with the new shades!

 

Like I always say ABH kills it no doubt.

HUDA BEAUTY Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette

The minute I saw this palette on Huda Beauty’s instagram, I knew that I needed this palette because the shade range was right up my alley.

I am absolutely in love with this palette. I can see myself reaching for this palette every time I’m going out. The shades blend effortlessly and are very pigmented! Worth the hype and the price. It comes with a lot of colors with a good shade range, and I feel like it goes well with all skin types and you can create so many looks with it.  The mattes are creamy and blend beautifully. The foils are super pigmented they feel like butter and I can use any of my brushes without having to use a spray first! I was able to use the shimmery shades with a packing brush without a problem but if you want a better colour pay off I would say to use your finger!

It is on the pricier side, but I’m really glad I bought it, as I know I will get a lot of use out of it. If you are someone who loves eye shadow palettes and use them often, I know you would love this one!

Price: $85.00 CAD

Tarte Shape Tape

FullSizeRender (1).jpg

My new holy grail…I haven’t touched my Nars concealer since I got this one and if anyone knows me or seen my previous pictures, know that I was a ride or die for that concealer. I have no idea why I didn’t try this concealer before. This concealer is so so good. Gives a very bright natural look to the under eyes. High coverage but still natural looking. It is creamy but not too thick and very easy to apply. Blends perfectly with a sponge or even your fingers, and feels light enough that you forget you’re wearing it but the coverage is full! Perfect for when you don’t feel like wearing foundation and just want to cover up your bags and blemishes.  I’m so happy I bought this product because it is literally amazing, definitely a repurchase for me. | @tartecosmetics |
