ELF NEW regular essential lipsticks lip and hand SWATCHES !! ALL shades!!


I am sooooooo excited to share these swatches with you.  ELF cosmetics UK sent these to me for review purposes..  they just got them in stock..  and .. actually there are also 6 other "old" shades,  of which I have "seductive"..  and I have been waiting for these shades since forever to get here..  because the shades really appealed to me :D 
so I thought I'd share with you the swatches :D:D and initial impressions!!

About the Product The GOOD: Super Creamy, Glossy, nicely pigmented, moisturising, hydrating, lovely smell and taste
The BAD: The packaging. It looks cheap and the lipsticks are prone to breaking due to the stiff texture. But I'm definitely sucking it up because the shades are just plain AMAZING and unique



A bright fuschia with reddish undertones  packed with silver shimmer.  Ok, I have to admit.  This is the ONLY one I didn't really like.  I personally hate shimmer / frost / glitter in my lipsticks..  but it's not an ugly …

100% pure purity cosmetics lip glaze in peach [review w/ swatches]!!

I'm so tired with my assignments and all that lately,
I haven't had that much time to post some blog posts :(
So sorry about that..
Hopefully I'll make it up to you during the Christmas Holidays xx

Anyway.. this is my review:

PACKAGING It's really nice to look at,  but as you twist it up and down, it definitely feels rather clumsy..  nothing you can't handle,  but it could be sturdier. And keeping in mind that the price is rather expensive,  I wouldn't have expected any issues with the packaging.  Again, it's not a big deal..  and it won't affect the product.  I just wished it was sturdier

TEXTURE Really smoothe..  It applies creamy but in the lightest layer ..

SMELL When I first opened it, this had quite a strong "fruit pigmented" smell.  Something like raspberries, or strawberries or something like that Eventually, this faded off.  If you hatefragranced lipsticks,  I would not consider the smell an issue

SHADE A corally red shade, with an orange un…

100% pure purity cosmetics fruit pigmented powdered blush in mimosa [review w/ swatches!!]

HELLO GUYS!!! I'm being so naughty today.. I'm during a lecture..  and I'm going to post a review,  because I'm such a rebel  haha :P
So I'll be talking about the cruelty free vegan product from 100% pure.. mimosa powdered blush  [I LOVE saying mimosa] - anyway. 

PACKAGING  Pretty nice, has a sleek mirror inside,  and opens and closes really nicely.. It's pink, cute and environmental friendly. 
TEXTURE Ugh. crumbly blush...  powdery powdery crumbly crumbly.  Yeah, I'm not going to lie.  I feel that the texture is not very nice  As soon as you touch this with a brush,  it crumbles up. 

SHADE A really nice pinky coral shade with shimmer.  too bad it doesn't show up.  It only adds a tint to your face. LASTING POWER Well, it basically lasts all day..  given that the shade hardly shows up in the first place

PIGMENTATION Ok, how am I going to say this in a nice way. the pigmentation sucks I mean I have a medium skintone,.. and even on the lightest area on my hand this was sooo hard to show…

100% pure fruit pigmented pot rouge in peachy [review w/ swatches!!]

I don't know if you read it but I wrote an overview about this product earlier on..  but this is the in detail full review..

anyway..  I'm going to get to the point and start the actual review. 

PACKAGING I quite like the packaging, simple.. sleek. I don't like tins that much, but I don't mind it in this case.  While it may seem that you have very little product.. trust me..  a little goes a long long way with this product.

TEXTURE I admit, this feels rather dry.. but surprisingly it warms up against your finger and applies like a dream,  without any chalkiness or anything like that.

PIGMENTATION Very nicely pigmented..

BLENDABILITY Highly blendable.  if you have the NYX cream blushes ..  this is even more blendable. 

BUILDABILITY Buildable, and can be sheered out  according to your personal liking. 

A. Cream blush I used this both on the cheek as a cream blush..  and as a lip stain.  I personally am not a huge fan of cream blushes.  In fact, I use the nyx cream blushes on t…

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette PRIDE [review, swatches and make up looks!!]

As many of you know Wet n Wild is not a worldwide company.. it's based in the US and barely anyone sells it online.  I did find it on ebay though so I got it off there. 
I'm a huge fan of Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colors, and single eyeshadows so I decided to try these out too. 
and here's what I think:

PACKAGING Ok I have got to admit I am not the biggest fan for the packaging.  I hate that it opens upwards not sideways.. I even hate notebooks that open like that.  Clear lid so you can see the packagings.  Comes with two ridiculously stupid brushes.. But the eyeshadows are so awesome I'm not even bothered about anything I just said.  It closes securely. and is very sturdy

TEXTURE Nice and smooth.. not gritty at all and applies silky smooth. 

PIGMENTATION It varies according to shades.  I find that the matte shades, and the bottom shimmer shade are very very pigmented. The other two are not very pigmented. 

Pride: Mattes: A matte creamy white A bright sea green shade A da…
