The long-awaiting Gigi Hadid x Maybelline makeup collection has finally launched! Well, not fully, but some of it has reached our shores! The collection reveals the story of Hadid’s life as she sees it, one shade at a time from her home base in New York City to her hometown in Los Angeles. Go from City Chic to Cali Vibes with the cool-toned and warm shades!
I’m not going to follow the City Chic nor the Cali Vibes look, but instead, I’m mixing it up according to mood 😉 Oh, and read till the end for a giveaway!
Just 2 weeks ago, the whole world stopped for Rihanna, as @badgalriri launched her very own makeup line dedicated for all skin colors, all undertones, from all countries. With foundation in 40 shades, skinsticks in 30 shades, Fenty Beauty was created and made for every girl in the world.
First things first, disclaimer! Note that this is not a post with sponsored products as I wasn’t provided with any and these two highlighters were solely purchased with my own pocket money. Let’s be honest here. I know that I have been reviewing a lot of products provided by PR companies and the brands themselves but I just want to put it out there that I share my most honest thoughts even if the campaign was paid or products sponsored!
*Back to Fenty Beauty* The two products that caught my attention immediately following the launch were the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife (seriously the world went crazy for this) and the Matchstix Shimmer Skinstick in Confetti. I bought them both with the help of a sweet friend who was at the press launch at Sephora ION.
When it comes to beauty, the Koreans always strike first. If you think applying blush is easy, think again. The Koreans have now reinvented the steps to achieving the perfect flush with the Blush Layering trend – basically working on a combination of sheer colours to achieve natural blush, contouring and highlighting effects.
And yes, if you’ve been following social media, you’ll definitely not be a stranger to the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection that’s all over your feed. The collection, with natural and luminous hues, is designed perfectly for the Blush Layering trend, with two colours in each of the six unique palettes.
I quite like the shade selection in each palette, because each palette is carefully designed for you to achieve a certain look, whether it be a pure and innocent one, a sun-kissed glowy one or even a well-contoured one. The combination of two ideal colours into one palette, coupled with the blendability of the formula, lets you conveniently create a complexion you desire in the shortest amount of time.
Coconuts always bring to mind images of a tropical vacation complete with sunny beaches and a salty ocean breeze. And while we know fresh coconut juice will definitely quench our thirst on a hot, sunny afternoon, what about having coconut in our beauty products? Well, thanks to its hydrating properties and its lush creamy scent, coconuts are widely used in skincare and makeup.
If you’re a lover of all things coconut, you’ll go (coco)nuts over this amazing drop from Marc Jacobs Beauty – Coconut Glow Collection.
Get ready to hydrate your skin and glow to coconut perfection with products in this summer range. Only four products here but they are all you need for that beautifully bronzed and glowy complexion.
One of the latest makeup trend brings you perfectly sculpted and highlighted cheekbones. It’s all about detailed contouring besides just adding a flush of colour to your cheeks! And of course, not to forget, strobing! If contouring is too difficult, let’s just focus on strobing, basically, the act of bringing light to the high points on the face. The best palette for your experiment is none other than the BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette!
And what do you know? It’s now BACK IN STOCK on Sephora Online only!
A collaboration with Jaclyn Hill, an American Professional Makeup Artist and a YouTube personality, this limited edition face palette features five iconic shades for that customised glow you want. The palette comes in a luxurious golden metal case with a white thick sticker plastered on the cover. I really love the simplicity of the design for it embodies the meaning of the palette – champagne glow.
