First Impressions - Kylie Jenner Cosmetics



I've got to admit that I am surprised with the quality of Kylie Jenner Cosmetics, I know I am only going off a small array of products but I just love them!

It took me a long time to jump on the hype, it was purely down to the shipping costs and then the extra payments once it reached the post office that put me off, I cannot justify spending that amount of money for one products. But I guess if you buy in bulk or are just beauty obsessed then it is kinda worth it.

I literally have no bad word to say whatsoever and this hardly ever happens (ok, ok, there is one and that is the products look far too pretty to use). 

Let's just start with discussing the packaging; it is extremely simple, sleek and eye catching plus it is very girly - these are the products you want to have on show.

The lip products are all creamy and nourishing when applying, they do apply a little tacky especially the matte lipstick, however, they do soak into the lips well. I've got the matte lipstick in shade High Maintenance, it is the most gorgeous pink shade you ever did see. I did get a little worried when I first applied it because it was a cool blue tone but the shade switched to the gorgeous pink.

I am equally surprised with the quality of the lip pencils, sometimes they can be quite hard and you feel like you are dragging your lip which is one of the worst feelings. But these are lovely and creamy they blend beautifully and last all day which is what you want for the price you pay.

Finally, lets discuss the blusher. Oh my, this is absolutely stunning, it has to be my favourite beauty product in a long, long time. Being very fair skinned I don't suit anything too bright or drastic so a nice subtle pale pink blush is perfect for my skin tone but if you are going for that tanned look it also looks gorgeous being swept across the apples of your cheeks. 

Have you tried any Kylie Jenner Cosmetics before?

Summer Base Favourites



For the past few weeks as the weather has been absolutely glorious, I have switched up my make up products particularly the beauty products I use on my base. 

Obviously I have had to cave in and start the tanning process (fake tan I should add) seen as it is dress weather and nobody wants another Casper the Friendly Ghost walking around. Along with tanning, I have also switched up my foundation and have been reaching for the darker shades, my favourite thing to do is to mix L'Oreal Infallible 24h Foundation and the L'Oreal Infallible 24h Matte Foundation in shade 20 sand. and together to try to get the perfect match. 

For some reason, with the nicer weather and applying fake tan my skin has cleared up drastically which means I don't have to cake on the concealer which is always a bonus. For the darker and pigmented skin, I have been using the darker shade in the Make Up Revolution Pro HD Camouflage Concealer Palette and then the Collection Perfection Concealer in shade 1 to brighten up my under eye. 

To set it all, I have been loving my Laura Mercier Sheer Perfecting Powder in shade..., I gently sweep it over my face to set the foundation and concealer before going over with my Benefit Hoola Bronzer to add that sunkissed look - because you can never have enough bronzer. 

All of these products work so well together and blend lovely over my tan to create a flawless base ready for the blush and highlight. The two blushers I have been reaching for recently has been either the Kylie Jenner blusher in Barely Legal or the Benefit Blusher in Rockateur on the apples of my cheeks before going in with the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle.

I have really loved using all of these products and creating this particular look recently, giving me the the look that I have just stepped off the plane but really I have a 9-5 office job. (I think I know which I would prefer) 

For anyone wondering what tan I have been using, it is the St Moritz mousse in medium. 

What products have you been loving recently?
