benefit the porefessinal !

Posted by Lipstick and Blush at 8:05 AM 0 comments

We all know the "porefessional" and how it claims to make your skin silky and remove the appearance of pores ,but the question is are these claims true ?!!
well,to be honest i was very very excited to try the porefessional because i have pores and i want my foundation to last longer ,lets' start off by the texture its' like a balm and  its' beige but when you blend it on your skin it goes on clear  and it leaves your skin feeling silky and soft ,so when i tried itit didn't erase  my pores but it blurred them a little  , and i noticed it did make my foundation stay a little longer than usual and reduced my oiliness as well,what i like about it is that it is not like the other primer out there and that its' not sticky or liquidy ,i  don't know if i'm going to repurchse because its' quite pricey but i think its' a really good primer.


mac soft and gentle highlighter !

Posted by Lipstick and Blush at 6:00 AM 0 comments
 mac soft and gentle highlighter  is a really shimmery highlighter as you can see from the swatch  and thats' only one swipe ,its' a champagne color for me i like silvery highlighters more than champagne highlighter but this gives a healthy glow as they say ^_^ especially if you have yellow undertones in your skin it will complement your skin
 i love the color pay off and the pigmentation is great with jut one swipe and its' really subtle and really pretty
Heres' a closer look with the lid open as you can see its' very shimmery so it will highlight pretty well..
and thats' my review i like to write my reviews not too long not too short so you won't get bored  and i don't like long reviews myself,so hope you found that helpful and tell me about your favourite highlighters drugstore and high end as well...and thank you for taking the time to read my review.


mac blush in dainty review ..

Posted by Lipstick and Blush at 4:48 AM 0 comments
 mac blush in dainty is a really good blush for every day makeup looks or even for evening makeup looks it suits every time because its' such a really gorgeous subtle color as you can see from the swatch
 .here i built up the color but the pigmentation for one swipe is really good so you will end up with a subtle pinky coral flush on your cheeks which is really pretty...
heres' a close up with the lid open as you can see it's really subtle and pretty ,i think they should have named it pretty in pink because its' pretty and its' pink haha  but its' name (dainty) really does describe the subtlety of the color ...
so thats' my review hope its' helpful  ,what about you do you like mac blushes ?

Posted by Lipstick and Blush at 4:53 PM 3 comments
Sephora is launching a new makeup collection "Divergent collection" apparently based on the upcoming Divergent movie (which i'm not really excited about lol) anyway the collection seems pretty nice and i really really like them , they come in 3 sets

7- piece nail art kit (i really like the nail polishes colors) $ 27.50

multi-piece collector's pallet $ 32.50

and finally this amazingly huge multi-piece collector's kit  $ 59.50

all the kits are exclusive limited edition at sephora



some beauty picks !!!

Posted by Lipstick and Blush at 8:11 AM 0 comments

 These beauty picks  are maybelline color whisper ,mac 239,ciate nail polish,the body shop rainforest radiance detangling spray.

Let's start by maybelline  color whisper lipstick in petal rebel it's a sheer lipstick but you can build it up it kinda has a gel texture and it's so light on the lips  ,the color petal rebel looks very natural on the lips but it can be built up .
The mac 239 brush is really good for picking up eyeshadow and it's so soft too.
ciate nail polish in pillow fight and cutie pie ,cutie pie is really light  you will need 2 coats to get the color to be  opaque ,pillow fight you can put one coat and it will look very subtle ,the only downside with this nail polish is the brush its so thin so when i finish painting my nail it can look a little bit streaky.
The body shop rainforest detangling spray it's really good for detangled hair as it softens it and makes it easier to comb .
so that's it for my beauty picks,hope you like it.

mac haul

Posted by Lipstick and Blush at 7:53 AM 0 comments

A while ago i went to mac to buy some eyeshadow refills for my z palette but i walked out from the store carrying all of  this....yeah !! crazy right? ,i don't know it's just when i'm at the store all the products start to sparkle like gems ,so i got the refills which are : moons' reflection,phloof,shroom and gleam they are all gorgeous subtle shades which i prefer rather than bold shades.

second item i got was mineralize skinfinish  in soft and gentle,the first time i heard about it  was from tati (glamlifeguru) she featured it in her mac haul so i swatched it in the store and i loved it reminds me of The balm mary loumanizer ..
i also got mineralize skinfinish natural  in light plus  ,haven't tried it yet  but  when i swatched it it was very smooth
,i got mineralize blush in dainty which is a peachy pink blush ,really subtle and gorgeous color,also i got false lashes mascara it looks very sleek as you can see in the picture above and the formula is really great it doesn't make my lashes look or feel flaky at all like other mascaras do,also got 239 brush  which is really soft it doesn't blind eyeshadow it just put it on your lid but if you want a blending brush then get the 217
and the last item i got was satin lipstick in snob which is a mauve pink it's very subtle great for everyday but not to be worn alone with a lip gloss maybe so you don't look washed out ..
And thats' all for my haul  hope you like it ... and what do you think of these products ?
