The powder puff lippie is a new product by NYX, which I recently received from the brand, and I started using it as soon as possible. I received mine in the shade “Best Buds” which is a nice pink/peachy nude. You can see me wearing it in the exact previous post. It’s a creamy lip color, which has an almost matte finish, and leaves a powdery feel on your lips. It’s super strange, nothing like I’ve ever tried before, but at the same time I absolutely loved it. It’s super easy to apply, thanks to the sponge it has on the top of the tube, it has a nice fruity scent, it’s creamy at first, and then turns to powder. It looks matte, but feels creamy and powdery at the same time, and it doesn’t dry my lips. I’ve been using it non-stop this month, and I love both its feel and its color. The only disadvantages I can find to it, and I honestly don’t care much about it, is that it’s transferable, and doesn’t last that long on my lips. And the fact that you will probably need a lip liner before using any of its darker shades. But these are ok by me. I definitely suggest you get one yourself, and try it out! You won’t regret it!
One of my favorite products of 2017, was definitely this highlighter by Becca Cosmetics, in collaboration with Jaclyn Hill. I’ve only had it in my hands for 2-3 months for the end of 2017, but it definitely won a place in the top 17. The shade is called C-Pop or Champagne pop as some people are calling it, and it’s a perfect rose-gold shimmery shade. I’ve been using it almost non-stop since the day I got it, and you can say it was love at first sight for me. Some people say that its glow is very intense, but I think it’s buildable. You can use it from day to night, and make it as intense as you like. It comes in a really nice round container, with a nice big mirror, which makes it perfect for travelling. Of course I took it with me to Athens last month; I simply couldn’t leave it behind. If you’re looking for a nice highlighter you should definitely check out this one!
It’s been such a long time since I received and tried out this lip product, yet I realized, I haven’t written a review here on the blog. Mine is no. 207, Wuthering Purple, and it’s a really nice, bold and bright purple lip color. It’s very easy to apply by using its own applicator. You just need to add a few layers for it to look completely okay, but the color is amazing. However, I wouldn’t say that it’s matte, since it never completely dries, and stays quite creamy, but not exactly glossy. It doesn’t stay put for many hours, and since it’s not matte, it is unfortunately transferable, but that’s okay by me. It’s a color I used a lot during spring/summer and I love how it looks on me. There are some other shades available, so if you like it, check them out!
It’s been a few weeks since I wrote my last beauty review here on the blog, so I’m back with another one. And I can’t believe I haven’t already written a review about this makeup product. I was certain that I already had, but I checked, and no…I haven’t! Let’s correct that then! I’ve been using NYX’s HD Studio Photogenic foundation for a couple of months non-stop now and I have to tell you, I absolutely love it. It has a very nice consistency, medium to high coverage, and it’s not absolutely matte, something that goes perfectly well with my skin type which is more on the dry side, especially during the winter months. The shade “vanilla” is a little bit darker than my skin tone, but it blends so well that you can’t really tell. I love the finish it leaves on the skin, and the coverage. It’s very light weight and easy to apply, it doesn’t makes you look cakey, on the contrary, and looks great in photos or videos. I love it so much, that I’m definitely going to purchase it after this tube is over. It’s my go-to foundation for the past couple of months.
Promised you I’ll be back with new reviews, and here’s another one. I’ve been using Wycon Cosmetics’ Lift Effect Foundation for a few months now and it’s time to share my opinion about it. It’s a really nice foundation, not too matte, not too dewy, that has SPF15 and it looks very natural on the skin. I went with shade 02 (Beige) which turned out to be darker than I’d like it to be, so that made it difficult for me to wear everyday, but I did wear it plenty of times. It has a nice consistency, not too thick not too thin, which makes it easy to apply it either with a brush or a makeup sponge and it stays put for hours. If I had chosen the proper shade for me I would have worn it much more, so I’m sad that I didn’t. Compared to all the other foundations I’ve tried so far I’d give it an 8/10 because I do like it, but I don’t love it. So my search for the best foundation for my skin continues.
