KYLIE COSMETICS HIGH GLOSS // REVIEW

Image
Kylie Cosmetics makes some of my all-time favorite lip products, so I was very excited to try out the new High Glosses. The High Glosses retail for $16 each and come in 14 shades on the website. I have 3 of the shades, "My Moon and Stars", "Lost Angel" and "Oh You Fancy?".

(Left to right) "Oh You Fancy?" is described as a sheer silver with champagne pearl - "Lost Angel" is a baby pink with pink and gold shimmer - "My Moon and Stars" is a warm pink with multidimensional glitter.
On the Kylie Cosmetics website, it seems that each shade has a distinct color difference, but in person they look nearly identical on the lips. They are marketed as sheer glosses, but the photos on her website can be a little bit deceptive. I bought 3 shades thinking that they would look different on the lips, but the only major difference between them is the shade of glitter in them. There is no base pigment, so they are all essentially clear glosses wi…

FLOWER BEAUTY SUGAR RUSH PALETTE REVIEW

Image
Flower Beauty recently released two new palettes, "Sugar Rush" and "Sun's Blazing", both of which have the perfect shades for spring and summer. I was instantly drawn to the "Sugar Rush" palette when I saw it at Ulta a few months ago. It's full of gorgeous pink and berry-toned shadows that are so unique to my eyeshadow collection. Flower Beauty is one of my favorite brands of all time and I've loved every product I've tried from them so far. This is the first time I tried an eyeshadow palette from them, so I was very excited to test out the formula.


This palette retails for $16.99 at Ulta in the U.S. and on Flower Beauty's website (the brand just launched in a few other countries, so check out their website and social media for more info!). The palette also includes a very high quality blending brush, valued at $6.

I'm going to go shade by shade and share my thoughts on the quality of each - since there's no names to refer to, I …

MET GALA 2019: BEST DRESSED

Image
This year's theme for the Met Gala is "Camp: Notes on Fashion". "The essence of Camp is it's love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration," wrote Susan Sontag in her 1964 essay that inspired the theme of this year's event, "The hallmark of Camp is the sprit of extravagance. Camp is a woman walking around in a dress made of three million feathers." 
This Met Gala theme was definitely my favorite from recent years because it turned the otherwise uptight event into something so much more interesting and out-of-the-ordinary from what we're used to seeing all of these people wearing normally. There were definitely a lot of iconic fashion moments this year, so in today's post I'm going to share my favorites and what made them stand out amongst the rest.

The most notable moment of the night was definitely Lady Gaga. Her entrance was over 15 minutes long, accompanied with 4 dramatic wardrobe changes, 5 dancers, choreograph…

FLOWER BEAUTY BLUSH BOMB REVIEW

Image
In today's post I'm going to be sharing a review on one of my new favorite products, Flower Beauty's Blush Bomb! Enjoy!

Flower Beauty has been one of my all-time favorite makeup brands for a long time and I was so excited when they released this product a few months ago. I love cream and liquid highlighters, but I've never used a liquid blush like this before, so it did take some time for me to figure out how it works best for me. 

This product is very pigmented, so a little bit goes a long way. I typically don't use much more than a pea sized amount. I often end up applying too much of it, so if this happens to you, I recommend putting few dots of your concealer or foundation over top of it to tone down the color. Even though it has intense color payoff, this product wont stain your skin and washes off easily at the end of the day. This product would be perfect for both oily and dry skin, because it is long-lasting, but also doesn't accentuate any dryness.

2019 WINTER BEAUTY FAVORITES

Image
In today's post I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite and most-used makeup products of the past few months - Enjoy!
"Glitz" // Kylie Cosmetics Super Glitter Gloss // $15

Kylie Cosmetics makes some of my favorite liquid lipsticks, so I was excited to finally try one of their lip glosses. I have the shade "Glitz" which is a beautiful peach with gold glitter. I've tried a lot of glitter-based glosses and this is one of the best formulas I've used (my all time favorite is the Flower Beauty Galaxy Glaze). The glitter doesn't feel gritty when applied on the lips and the pigment applies evenly. "Glitz" looks so pretty on it's own but if you're looking for a more toned down look, I also love to mix it in with other glosses or apply it on top of lipstick. 

Now that Kylie Cosmetics is sold at Ulta, I definitely want to try out more products from the brand so leave me some recommendations in the comment section below! "Sailor"…
