Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Review time!!! I just received the entire Kylie Cosmetics Grinch Collection in the mail this week & I want to break down each product and tell you what I loved and didn’t love. Palette: I’m not one that reaches for tons of colour usually but all the greens in this palette are gorgeous! There’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades, and as usual, the shadows blend like a dream! The good thing about this palette is that there are still some neutral shades rather than just greens. I definitely appreciate the mixture of shades. Shadow Sticks: The Kylie shadow sticks are probably one of my favourite products they have ever released. They are so extremely pigmented, and so easy to apply. They’re basically fool proof, and they set as a shadow. If you haven’t tried them out, I highly suggest you do! In this collection we have a super pretty light shimmery green, light gold, and two rosy toned shadow sticks. Shimmer Eye Glazes: This product is insane. They are a super intensely pigmented eyeshadow that leaves the lids looking wet & dripping in glitter! One swipe of these on the lid is literally all you need for that intense shimmer. If you’re someone who loves super shimmery eyeshadow, I recommend giving the Kylie Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Glazes a try. This collection came with 2 shades: a minty turquoise green and a gold - & I’m obsessed and so happy to be adding these to my collection!! Olive Kyliner: My go to liquid liner is the black Kyliner, so i wasn’t surprised when i loved the easy application and long wearing quality of this olive Kyliner! The liner applies a lighter olive green and dries down to a deeper olive shade. It’s definitely not something I’d reach for everyday, although it’s definitely cute for the holidays or even for a pop of colour to a neutral eye! Blush: I am a huge fan of the Kylie Cosmetics Blushes as opposed to the other blushes I’ve tried from the brand this one had some shimmer in it! It’s quite similar to the NARS “orgasm” blush but with a stronger pink hue. I love the shimmer in it, it adds a pretty glow to the cheeks, perfect for the holidays.. or any day really :P Highlight: Def on theme, but probably my least favourite product in of the collection :( Don’t get me wrong, it’s super blinding and glowy. Although, once I applied to my face it showed off as very green. Personally I don’t want a green glow on my face! But hey, if that’s your vibe that’s cool! Definitely not a highlight I’d reach for everyday. Lip Kit: Obsessed. This red is EVERYTHING! This Lip Kit is one of the best reds I have ever tried. It has a matte finish and is extremely long wearing. I know it’s sold out but a similar shade would be “BOSS” by Kylie. Lipsticks: These shades are gorg for the holidays and I love the shade range! Long wearing & comfortable on the lips. High Glosses: Kylies high glosses are high shine, but very sticky! So if you’re not a fan of sticky glosses you won’t love these. These shades are perf for the holidays and everyday!

baddie lashes made me that bxtch
if you follow my instagram, you may have seen that every day for the last few months i’ve worn the lashes bxtch from baddie lash and i have no regrets. i don’t think i can make a pros and cons list for these because there aren’t any cons, all i can think of is the fact that they aren’t restocked often enough for me to buy another pair!! they’re fluffy and extra as hell but they don’t look plastic and fake. perfect volume without being heavy on the eyes. the band isn’t thick and blends in nicely on the lash line. super affordable (i got mine for about $14 on sale?) supports a local NZ brand run by women! i’ve tried a couple of their other lash styles and they’re all fine and dandy but nothing has compared to the beautiful bxtch. wholeheartedly recommend if you can catch them when they’re restocked #baddielash - Bxtch - Lashes[products]#[FiveStars]
My Pixi Beauty Summer Makeup Look
I created this light and summery look using almost all Pixi Beauty products! (Kindly gifted) pixi - Summer Glow Palette I used a bronzer, blush, and two highlighters from this palette. One highlighter was used as an eyeshadow base. Over all the palette is nice however the powders are quite powdery- I have to blue excess product off my brushes multiple times or I would be left with a mess. Otherwise they’re pigmented and lay smoothly on the skin pixi - Endless Shade Stick Really like this eyeshadow stick. Creamy color that goes on sheer but is buildable pixi - Liplift Max This is such a pretty peachy color with a little bit of sparkle to it. Non sticky it’s nice and smooth! pixi - Large Lash Mascara Kind of mist coats the lashes and darkens them but didn’t notice any lengthening or volume which is what I always look for in a mascara I hope you enjoyed this summer look from Pixi!

Too expensive for the basic result
stila - Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow I’m using the shade carefree. I want to preface this review by saying I don’t think this is a bad product at all! However, I just think it’s too expensive for the amount of product and for a result I can get with a powder shadow. The Stila Shimmer & Glows retail for 24 USD. I think they are very beautiful and application is very easy and smooth! I typically use a small lip brush to apply it to get more precise placement. Here I’m using the SIGMA - L05 Lip Brush to smooth this out all over the lid and blending it a bit into the crease. I enjoy these because they are somewhat two dimensional so they make a great one eyeshadow look! However, I wish the shimmer and glows had more... shimmer. When you get this on the lid it’s more of a subtle sheen than a shimmer. I usually top it with a glittery shade to make it more punchy. I also think the value you get for your money is very poor with this product. If I’m using it every day, I can go through one of these in about 2 months. That’s a bad value for an liquid eyeshadow that looks similar to all my other powder shadows that were much cheaper per use. Overall, I wouldn’t buy these again and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone. I’m sure there are cheaper alternatives from the drugstore than give a similar effect. #cheriepartner

LUNA by Luna Cosmetics ❤️
I created this light summer glow look with two of my most loved products from Ipsy glam. Let’s Talk Eyes 👀 LUNA by LUNA - Juliet Eyeshadow I absolutely love this light shimmery eyeshadow! It’s almost like a pink highlighter for your eyelids. And it’s pretty versatile I kind of stuck with like the light pink hue with this look but you could add this to like some golds for a rose gold look, or even purples. 💲15..... a little pricey for only one color but I feel it’s worth it! Now For Cheeks! 🤗 LUNA by LUNA - LUNA by LUNA Highlighter This is my absolute FAV! You can layer it with blush and other highlighters! It’s sooo shimmery and gives a wonderful pink glow on my cheeks!!!! So sweet and subtle you just can’t miss if your a pale one like me! 💲23....also not exactly cheap...not the most expensive. But still a must have addition!!! I love these products. They make you feel like a goddess which they do claim on their site 😂 but it’s true! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
LUNA by LUNA-Juliet Eyeshadow
So I got the My Glamour Squad from Wet N Wild. I compared that and the ABH Soft Glam.... let’s just say I won’t be spending that kinda money again since I found the WNW one. There’s literally no difference.
