LIPSTICK DIARIES #45 | VIVO Thing Called Love + Eye Look #1 feat VIVO Dreamy Palette !

Image
HEY DOLLS !  I have recently made an order off VIVO cosmetics with their 50% OFF + FREE SHIPPING and I got some stuff I've been eying for a while to test out.  I did this eye look with VIVO's colour block eyeshadow palette in Dreamy,  which I got in this same order for just £1.99 (It originally costs £3.99) and I used VIVO's NEW lip crayon stain in Thing Called Love.

VIVO cosmetics Pearl Eyeshadow in Electric Purple | Review w/ Swatches !

Image
HELLO GUYS!
I've been so lazy these past few days but today  I made it a point to sort out some blog reviews.  I can't believe I've finally come round to do it, but I guess I'm starting to discipline myself better.  #you can applaud now :)
Anywho - today's review is going to be about a Vivo eyeshadow.  I have had these eyeshadows for a while but I wanted to thoroughly test them out  before I write anything about them. ABOUT THE PRODUCT Packaging-wise, these eyeshadows are quite sleek-looking  and I have not had any problems with the packaging.  Except for one eyeshadow which was a tad too difficult to open.  Texture-wise these eyeshadow vary A LOT. So one shade varies from the other.  Even when it comes to texture and pigmentation.  This one - ELECTRIC PURPLE - is a beautiful shade in the pan, but is too hard to swatch, and barely transfers when it applies. The shade is all in the name, it's a duochrome purple. 


BOTTOM LINE This one was disappointing to be h…

NYX Glitter Mania in GP04 Pink | Review w/ Swatches !

Image
HEY DOLLS !
I have had these NYX glitter manias for quite a few months and I figured it's about time I review them.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT Holds a huge amount of loose glitter in here,  however it's a bit impractical to use because the opening  of where you get eyeshadow is too small.  Also - there is no sifter, it's not something that really bothers me,  but you'd have more control over the product that goes out.  The texture is quite smooth,  but glitter texture is not consistent throughout all colours. It applies quite nicely, but you'd need to apply this with a glitter fixer. I personally use my duo lash glue to apply this on. This one has quite chunky glitter (which is a good thing)  and has pink and light purple reflexes.

BOTTOM LINE I quite enjoy these lot, and this shade is a beautiful one,  even though I quite rarely opt for pinks on my eyes. 

 That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

MUA Artiste Palette | Review w/ Swatches !

Image
HEY DOLLS!
I hope you're all having a great day ! I had raved about this palette in this tutorial right here but I still feel the need to  do a proper review w/ swatches:





ABOUT THE PRODUCT The palette contains 6 generous marble eyeshadow shades,  and 4 face powders.










The 6 eyeshadow shades are called: Pistachio - a frosty light slightly blue undertoned white shade.  Mocha -  a frosty cream shade Ice - A frosty medium bright blue shade Grape - a frosty gorgeous bright purple Chocolate - A cool toned metallic taupe grey shade Cookie - a warm orange toned brown with slight gold shimmers


All the eyeshadows are creamy, only a tad powdery but very pigmented.  I like to use this eyeshadow palette to create a winged liner look with a purple pop on the lashline. 




The face powders consist on two blush shades, a bronzer and a highlight shade. Pink Sparkle -  A shimmery peachy blush Primrose - A satin rosy blush  Bronzed - A matte golden- toned bronzer Shimmer Kiss - A pink toned shimmer highlight
