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.

Gloss Bomb by Fenty Beauty

For starters I am not a lip-gloss kind of person, yes I do have lip-glosses but I never reach for them or ever say “I’m going to wear lip gloss today.” However, I really wanted to try the entire Fenty Line so I got the lip glosses too!

G L O S S B O M B – This lip product pretty much changed my mood for lip-glosses! The consistency of this lip-gloss is amazing. It is non sticky and glides on the lips, so comfortably. The gloss is rich with a hint of color; the applicator is actually very nice and helps with a smooth even layer on my lips. Its just so beautiful, makes my lips look fuller, prettier, without much effort at all.  I have no idea what Rihanna put into this gloss but it’s super shiny, super smooth, and makes your lips feel and look amazing so I’m all for it!

Sold at Sephora for $23.00 CAD

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

F E N T Y B E A U T Y

  

 

In the word of Fenty Beauty by Rihanna “Finally—the ultimate photo filter in foundation form. Born in 40 boundary-breaking shades, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation gives skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish that easily builds to medium to full coverage. The oil-free formula is made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity, and won’t clog pores so that wherever you are, it’s going to work on your skin. Best of all, this longwearing, light-as-air texture is undetectable on skin—so you always look like you.”

 This foundation comes in a 1.08 oz/ 32 mL glass bottle (making it look every chic).

FENTY BEAUTY is finally here! To be honest I wasn’t really going to try out the primer or foundation, until I walked into Sephora and saw one of the employees wearing both the primer and foundation together. Her face looked FLAWLESS.

I fell in love with this primer on the first use. Unlike most pore smoothing primers, this one is very lightweight and does not slide around over time. It’s the best product I’ve tried. My main concern is minimizing the appearance of pores and uneven tone. It did the job without making my skin greasier over time. It blurs pores and fine lines,
keeps skin hydrated, and keeps my makeup in tact. Def exceeded my
expectations!

Like I said before, I was a little sceptical at first about this foundation only because it’s so hard for me to choose foundations especially due to my skin being so oily. I walked into Sephora and saw one of the staff wearing it and I fell in love with the way her face looked. I had her colour-match me and I loved the way it felt on my skin. I bought the foundation in the colour 250 (I do recommend going into a store to get colour matched because I bought one online and I bought it in the shade 340. That was way too dark for me). I went home tried it on, took a nap, woke up and let me tell you – my face still looked flawless. I’ve been wearing my foundation all weekend I’m seriously obsessed with the colour, the way it feels on my skin & the fact that it looks so natural and it covers all my horrible acne scars. The pigmentation is outrageously well done and the finish is matte, but natural. I am crazy for this foundation; I did NOT think that Rihanna (the amazing music artist that she is) would come out with one of the best foundations I have ever purchased in my life! It is a serious game changer!

  Rihanna really knows what she’s doing so cheers to her and her new brand!

Available in 40 shades, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation retails at $42.00 CAD

Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipsticks

Anastasia Beverly Hills recently launched one of the biggest and massive lipstick collections ever. I must say, they truly have outdone themselves with this collection.

These lipsticks are perfection. The colours are not only beyond beautiful, but there are is a wide range of selection. They don’t feel dry or look cracked on your lips. All the lipsticks are very pigmented and last on your lips for a very long time. They are very matte,but also are so comfortable to wear for how matte they are. They are not as creamy as other lipsticks, and I think it was definitely noticeable while swatching that they do have a pull. I lovee these & I think these lipsticks might just be my go to everyday!
