ColourPop Cosmetics x Shayla | Perception Palette | Full Review

Hi Beauties, 

Welcome back to yet another eyeshadow palette review post! Today’s post is going to focus on the Perception palette which was a collaboration between ColourPop Cosmetics and Shayla (aka MakeupShayla). If you want to learn more about the palette, and whether or not I will be keeping it in my collection, then keep on reading. 

About The Palette –

I was instantly drawn to this collection when it was first released back in 2018. I splurged and purchased the entire collection all in one hit, which contained the palette, some creme luxe lipsticks and two loose highlighter shades. Shayla and ColourPop have come together on numerous occasions now and released some pretty amazing stuff! The Perception palette is a large 16 shade palette that contains shades with matte, shimmer and metallic finishes.

The Packaging – 

The palette itself is stunning. The cardboard exterior has a black, purple and gold splatter pattern to it and is quite large in size as it does contain 16 shades of shadows. The size of the pans, however, are smaller in comparison to ColourPop’s single pressed shadows. A major bonus for me in regards to this palette is that it also holds a decent sized mirror. You could very easily do your makeup with it! Another bonus is that the packaging isn’t super thick, so it is super easy to store within your collection.

The Shades – 

Unbothered is a metallic soft, golden beige shade with a very subtle peach shift. 

T.F. is a metallic gold shade. 

Titus is a dark frosted grey taupe shade. 

Stallion is a deep black shade with flecks of blue sparkles. 

Spill The Tea is a metallic medium rosy copper shade.

Diva is a metallic copper with orange undertones. 

I.E. is an olive green shade with a pearly sheen finish.  

14 is a medium blue shade with a pearly sheen finish. 

Strut N Slay is a metallic rosy copper shade. 

Culture is a matte dark orange/peach shade. 

Sassy has a reddish-brown base with green/teal shifting shimmers. 

September is a pink shade with a frosted sheen finish. 

Revenge is a matte dark red/copper shade. 

Thic is a matte rich orange shade. 

Played Out is a matte deep red-brown shade. 

Shade is a plum/burgundy shade with flecks of sparkle.

Final Thoughts

I have really grown to love the formula and pigmentation of ColourPop shadows. They blend out super easily on the eyes, they are intensely pigmented and they have such a wide range of shades within their single pressed shadow collection. The Perception palette definitely reaches these expectations also. While the more metallic shades are definite standouts in this palette, the pigmentation of the matte shades are still something worth noting. 

Will I be keeping the ColourPop Cosmetics x Shayla Perception Palette in my collection? Sadly, I think this one is going to go. While I have found so many positives about this palette, it is just one of those items that I hardly ever reach for. The shades are stunning, but I like a palette to contain more cohesive shades so that I can use it for numerous different looks without having to dip into other palettes. The colour story just leaves me feeling a little uninspired. 

Have you tried the Perception palette? What is your favourite ColourPop Cosmetics eyeshadow palette? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

My Makeup Stash | Highlighters

Hi Beauties,

Coming at you again with another ‘My Makeup Stash’ post! Today we are focusing on the highlighters in my collection. Highlighters are one of my favourite parts of the makeup process, which probably explains why I own so many! If you want to know which ones I do own, keep on reading. 

My Anastasia Beverly Hills That Glow Glow Kit has been such a favourite ever since I got my hands on it back in 2016. Although I only really reach for the two lighter shades (Bubbly and Sunburst), I couldn’t imagine ever wanting to get rid of this palette. Due to the fact that it is no longer available (that I can find anyway), I have really cut back on using it! This highlight palette contains 4 beautiful shades; Sunburst (light yellow gold), Golden Bronze (golden bronze) Bubbly (golden beige) and Dripping In Gold (medium yellow gold).

Similar to the Glow Kit is the incredible Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit. Again, this one is no longer available which really saddens me. I got my hands on this one back in 2017 and I plan on keeping it forever! Well until it is too gross to use anyway. It is more of a glittery highlight which is why I don’t reach for it as much as some of the other highlights in my collection, but I love it either way. This highlight palette contains 6 beautiful shades; Forever Lit (platinum with a lavender reflect), Kitty Kat (pink with a platinum reflect), Forever Young (pink pearl with a silver reflect), Daydream (coral with a white gold reflect), Glo Getter (champagne with rose gold reflect) and 143 (rose gold with a bronze reflect). 

Next up I have four different shades of the ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock Cheek Highlighters in the shades Flexitarian (medium beige), Honeymoon (light lavender), Perilune (light green) and Over The Moon (light lavender). I have had all of these highlighters since 2016 (is that too long, yikes!) and they are still in perfect working order. The texture of these highlighters is more of a creamy one which is why you would think they would dry up after all this time. But alas, I can still use them which makes me so happy! 

Next, I have some beautiful Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors. Like most of the powder products in my collection, these have been around for quite some time. Due to the fact they are powder products, I still find them ok to use as they do not smell and do not have a weird texture to them! I have two shades; Pearl (light white) and Moonstone (light gold). Pearl is the most perfect shade for light skin tones as it is such a light shade, but it doesn’t leave a weird cast on the skin either. 

Similar to the Super Shock Cheek formula, we have the Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter. I have this in the shade Transcendence (light pinky lavender). I don’t reach for this shade all that often and it is very similar to the Over The Moon shade from ColourPop, but it is just too beautiful to get rid of. I love using this highlighter as an inner corner highlight on my eyes as well as on my cheeks for a little something special.  

Next up is the cult favourite Mary Lou-Manizer (warm-toned light gold) from The Balm. I feel like every person that is obsessed with makeup has either tried this or has it in their collection currently. It is such a strong and bold highlight, so it isn’t hard to understand why it is so popular. I am unsure as to how long I have actually had this in my collection, but I know it’s been a heck of a long time so it may be time to repurchase sometime soon. 

One of the newer highlighters in my collection is the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Duo. This duo has the shades Lightning Dust (soft pearlescent sheen) and Fire Crystal (supercharged pearlescent shimmer). I have to admit that I tend to only reach for the more shimmery shade in this duo, but god I love it so much!

Last, but certainly not least, we have the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Frost highlighters. I have two beautiful shades; Frostbite (icy white with reflects of white pearl) and Frozen Peach (icy pink). As you can tell by the name, these are a liquid form of highlight. Liquid highlights aren’t my favourite and I don’t reach for these shades a lot. I still think they are stunning enough to keep for now though. 

Do you own any of these highlighters? What is your favourite highlighter from your own collection? Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!

My Makeup Stash | Face Palettes

Hi Beauties,

Welcome back to another post! Sorry about the inconsistency lately, I am just trying to get back into the groove of working full time, having a personal life and maintaining my presence on social media and this blog. But hey, it will all sort itself out soon I’m sure. 

As you guessed by the title of today’s blog, this post is going to give you an in-depth look into my face palette collection. This part of my collection isn’t massive compared to other areas of my collection, but I definitely have way more face palettes than the average person needs as I have been collecting makeup for many years now. Anyway, let’s jump straight into it, shall we?

The Nars Virtual Domination palette was a Sephora released exclusive palette that came out way back in 2014. I got my hands on mine in 2016, so she’s an oldie in my collection. I haven’t reached for this palette too much over the years, however, recently I decided to add this to my project pan simply because I have had it in my collection for a long period of time. This palette comes with a bronzer, and highlight shade as well as 3 beautiful blushes. 

The Tarte Cosmetics Blush & Glow palette is a stunning addition to my collection. This one is in the style ‘Peachy Glow’. I don’t always reach for this one, but when I do, boy am I not disappointed! Tarte makes really good face products (in my opinion anyway). The blush is beautiful and buildable and the highlight is subtle but striking. 

My first ever Hourglass product was the beautiful limited edition Ambient Lighting Palette they made in collaboration with Mecca. This is another product that is no longer available, however, the other Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palettes are very similar! I go through phases of using this because I do love it, but sometimes I need to give some other products a go. 

My Sleek Face Form Contouring Palette has been in my collection for far too long! But I just can’t seem to give it up. It has the most perfect mix of shades that suit my skin tone perfectly. These palettes are so affordable also which makes them even better! I will sadly be giving this one up at some point this year just because it is so old. 

I picked up the Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist PRO Glow To Go Palette from Sephora over a year ago. You know how Sephora stores have those little samples and goodies right as you are walking to the register? Yeah, well, they bloody got me didn’t they. Anyway, I am actually so glad I picked this one up. It is the most perfect little contouring and highlight palette to take travelling. My favourite thing in this palette, however, is the stunning and blinding highlight shade. Want to be seen from space? Pick up this palette!

Another really good travel palette is the Tarte Cosmetics Hampton’s Weekender Contour Palette. I am pretty sure I picked up this palette in one of those amazing sales that Tarte does where you basically build a makeup bag using their products and get them all at a discounted price. I wouldn’t say I use this one as much as the Glow To Go palette, but this is still a favourite in my collection. 

I was lucky enough to be sent the Ulta3 Face The Day Baked Contour & Highlight Palette at the end of 2019. Firstly, the smell of this palette is amazing but I can’t put my finger on exactly what it smells like. But trust me, it’s good. Secondly, for a palette that costs under $15, this is amazing! I was so surprised when I first tested it out for my blog last year and I have been reaching for it ever since.  

Which ones are your favourites from your collection? Are there any of these you would like to see a full review on? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

Makeup Inventory Template 

Hi Beauties,

I have a quick, short little post for you all today! If you have been following my Instagram for a while, then you may have seen me mention my Makeup Inventory on my stories. If you haven’t, well let me show you!

First things first, what is a makeup inventory? I first saw my loves kimkroft and beauty_withlauren share their makeup inventories on their stories (I think Lauren may also have a whole highlights reel dedicated to hers so make sure you check it out). I was really intrigued about it. What they explained was that you can use a makeup inventory to hold lots of different types of information about your makeup collection. From the price of products, size, whether it is cruelty-free or not and even ingredients. Now, everyone’s makeup inventory will be different. I know mine is pretty basic compared to Kims (as she literally does data for work and well, I can’t match them skills babes), but it works for me. 

I use my personal inventory to monitor purchases, decluttered items and empties, as well as my collection as a whole (obviously). I am not going to share the link to my own makeup inventory, as I base mine around the money I have spent on each product, and well that’s for me to know and for you to not worry about! However, I will share some screenshots of my own inventory, and I have created a google docs template for you to use and it will be linked at the bottom of this post!  

Screen Shot 2020-02-01 at 4.47.43 pm

Firstly in my makeup inventory, I have my Overview page. This page literally just lists all my products by categories (foundation, concealer, mascara, etc.). I am able to then put the total number of each product next to the corresponding category. I update this every 4 months and this way I am able to see how much I have added or gotten rid of from my collection. 

Screen Shot 2020-02-01 at 4.49.41 pm

The next page I use is the Inventory page. This is where I have almost all of these categories (I have separate pages for liquid lipsticks and eyeshadows). Here I list the name of the product, brand, whether it is cruelty-free, shade name, price, size, when I purchased it and when it expires. I love having all my makeup in a spreadsheet-like this as it lets me see what products I typically buy the most, and whether they are value for money or not. 

Screen Shot 2020-02-01 at 4.51.12 pm

Next up I have my Eyeshadow Pans page and my Liquid Lipstick page. Now, I own a fair few liquid lipstick and eyeshadow palettes so they need their own separate space. I have each shade in each eyeshadow palette laid out for me, this way I can monitor what I use, what I like or don’t like and eventually, I want to have the dupes written in my little notes section. 

Screen Shot 2020-02-01 at 4.51.56 pm

My New In, Empties and Declutter pages are all very similar. These ones are pretty straight forward too! For the New In page, I list any new products I receive or buy, and note how much they cost and when I got them. For the Empties page, I list the name, the price and whether I want to repurchase in the future or not. For my Declutter page, I note what the product is and why I am decluttering it. 

Screen Shot 2020-02-01 at 4.52.52 pm

Last, I have my Skincare Inventory page. Again, I have this separated into different skincare categories such as face masks, serums, face oils and moisturizers. I love keeping an eye on my skincare also cause I know I don’t go sticking to a skincare routine, so this way I can keep notes on what I like and don’t like and I can also check what I already own so I don’t purchase any unnecessary skincare products.   

Want to start your own Makeup Inventory but don’t know where to start? Use this link to access a little template I have made just for you! Enjoy!

Do you like the idea of having a Makeup Inventory? Do you think you would get some use out of one or do you think it is a waste of time? Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!

New Release | Ulta3 | Ultimate Gifting Collection

Hi Beauties!

They say it is the most wonderful time of the year, but it is also the most stressful time to shop for all those family/friends Christmas presents. Ulta3 decided to help to take the guesswork out of gifting this Christmas and release a complete range of premium quality cosmetic gift sets (without the premium price tag!) 

Once again, I was lucky enough to be contacted by a member of the Ulta3 Beauty team and asked if I wanted to try out some of their 2019 Gifting Collection. After trying out the last goodies I received, and being super impressed by them, I knew I wanted to do some more testing on this range. Today’s post is going to be all about the wonderful Ulta3 2019 Gifting Collection. 

IMG_0133

Firstly we have the beautiful Trend Hunter Nail Gift Set. This pack of four full-sized beautiful nail polishes only costs $9.95 AUD! The bold and bright shades will give you the pop of colour you need to brighten any look. These polishes are so stunning and I can definitely see myself being unable to pick which one I want to use first. 

Next up we have the Go Getter Eyeshadow Palette which retails for only $19.95 AUD. This palette is designed to be totally wearable but also allow you to make a statement. It has nine super pigmented and blendable eyeshadow shades which are the perfect mix of natural tones and ‘pop’ shades. You can definitely create a beautiful natural day look, then turn it into a dramatic night look with just this one palette. I have been playing around with this one over the past few weeks and I am really impressed! This would be a great present for a young beauty who is just getting into makeup as the shades are not too pigmented that they are hard to work with which means you can slowly work your way up to a beautiful look. I have also found that these eyeshadows are super blendable and buttery! 

How beautiful is this The Cheek Of It Baked Blush Palette?! It only costs $14.95 AUD and contains eight stunning baked blush powders. It has a beautiful range of shades, tones and finishes so that anyone will be able to find the right blush for them. I also tested this one out over the past few days and I think I have found my new favourite blush palette! All the shades are stunning and buttery, they also aren’t overly pigmented which means you won’t end up looking like a clown. The smell of this palette is to die for, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is exactly, but whatever it is smells amazing. 

The second to last product is the stunning Face The Day Baked Contour and Highlight Palette. This beauty will set you back only $14.95 AUD! This palette contains everything that you need to brighten and bronze-like a pro. The palette is travel-friendly and contains eight beautiful bronzer and highlight shades that can be used on any skin tone (it also smells really nice). I tested this one out for the first time the other day and was super impressed! I loved the different bronzer shades and how they blended so seamlessly onto the skin. They didn’t go muddy when I added extra colour and the shades blended so nicely into each other. 

Last, but certainly not least, we have the Colour Countdown Calendar. This new take on the traditional chocolate advent calendar will only cost you $24.95 AUD. This fun advent calendar features 12 beautiful travel sized Ulta3 nail polishes which are each hidden behind their own individual door. They can be used to brighten up each day in the lead up to the special day. If you are impatient like me, then jump over to my Instagram to see the beautiful polishes in this advent calendar. I also did some swatches of these nail polishes, and the nail polishes from the Trend Hunter Nail Gift Set on there too! Check them out here.  

This range is vegan and cruelty-free and is available to purchase now at selected pharmacies and online

*Disclaimer – all these products have been generously gifted to me, but all opinions are my own*

Have you tried any of the Gifting Collection from Ulta3? What product is your favourite? Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

Certifeye | The Tropical Wonders Palette | Palette Review

Hi Beauties,

If you follow me on Instagram (Makeupby.EmmaKate, you know, if you want to) then you would know that I have been very into the colourful, fun and bright makeup looks lately. When trying to find myself an amazing, yet affordable, colourful makeup palette, I did what any beauty lover would do… I searched the depths of Instagram to find out what colourful palette all the amazing “beauty guru’s” had been using. Lo and behold, I came across the Certifeye Tropical Wonders Palette.

At this point, weeks had gone by, and I had really wanted to pick this palette up. Then one day, again while I was clicking my way through the stories on Instagram, I found a post which led me back to the Certifeye Insta page. To my shock, there it was. The Tropical Wonders Palette – 40% off! I picked it up then and there and never looked back!

Certifeye is a UK based brand who is well known for their amazing glitters, lashes and eyeshadow palettes. The Tropical Wonders Palette went viral not long after it’s release and I am sure just by looking at the palette, you can understand why. The palette goes for £30 (approx. $54 AUD), so after the 40% off, it was such a bargain! The palette itself consists of 18 matte shadows with a colour story that reaches from one side of the rainbow to the other. It is also vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. (FYI: I ordered the palette on the 23rd of January and received it just over a week later).

Let’s get into some swatches!

IMG_0199

Not only are the shadows extremely bright in the pan, but as you can see, they are super pigmented when swatched as well. If you saw my previous post (6 Looks, 1 Palette) then you would see the different ways in which I have used this palette within the short amount of time that I have had it in my collection. And you would also see that the colours really blend super nicely on the eyes. They are also super build-able, which means you can intensify the look, or leave them a little lighter if you want more of a pastel bright eyeshadow look. I would say however, some of the shades are a little more “chalky” feeling than others, but the majority are definitely super buttery to the touch.

I love that even though this is a super bright palette, you can still create some stunning, more toned down looks. There are a few shades in the palette that can be used as subtle transition shades (such as Dusk or Shrimp) and I love the inclusion of pure white (Waterfall) and deep black (Bonobo) shades. My favourites would have to be Honeycreeper, Coast and Starling, they are just so pigmented and bright.

Final thoughts: I am SO happy that I picked up this eyeshadow palette and I really am in love with the product. I would say that the Tropical Wonders Palette is both great for advances makeup skills, but also really beginner friendly also. There isn’t a single shade in the palette that lets it down, so it really is great value for money. My only con; It’s currently sold out :(! If you can get your hands on it, you won’t be disappointed!

Have you tried the Tropical Wonders Palette? What other Certifeye products should I pick up? Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

Makeup Storage 2019

Hi Beauties,

I guess it doesn’t come as much of a shock to you when I say I love makeup. I love playing with it, I love looking at it, I like everything about it. But if there is one thing I love more than makeup, its organisation. I love knowing EXACTLY where everything is, and if I can’t find something, whatever it is gets reorganised once again (yes, I am constantly refolding and reorganising my clothes, even if just one thing is out of place). So having my makeup organised and looking pretty makes me SUPER happy.

Today’s post is going to be about my makeup organisation. Like all typical makeup hoarders, I have two of the Alex 5 Drawer unit from IKEA to store all my makeup in. All the drawer inserts are from an amazing Australian brand called Vanity Collections (not sponsored I just genuinely love them). I got hooked onto them a few years ago now and I have been slowly purchasing more and more dividers and holders from them so that my whole beauty set up looks on point at all times!

Let’s get into it!

 

First up we have my foundation, concealer, primer and liquid highlight drawer. I am using the Vanity Collections set 4 dividers for these products. As you can see I have removed one of the long inserts so that I could have a place to lay down my concealers and larger primer products. I love that these inserts are made perfectly for the Alex Drawer units, as they are harder drawers to fit stuff into.

 

Next up we have the face palette and eyeshadow palette drawers. I am combining these two as they both use the same Vanity Collections set 2 dividers. Each of these sets comes with 15-row dividers, some of which I have removed so that I can fit bigger/bulky palettes. Again, these dividers fit perfectly into my Alex drawers, but you can also get different sizes to fit into existing drawers you already have.

 

 

Now we are into my single eye product drawers. For this, I am using the Vanity Collections set 1 dividers. These dividers have 4 columns with 60 individual slots for all your smaller potted products. I love the acrylic design of these dividers as they are quite solid and are clear so that you can still see exactly what each product is when you go to use it.

 

Our second last drawer holds all my bronzers, blushers and single highlighter products. This one is the Vanity Collections set 3 dividers. This is similar to the previous dividers, except that it has 3 larger columns with 45 individual storage slots. Sadly, some of my dividers did not make it through the big moves I have done this year so unfortunately, these slots do not go all the way to the back of the drawer. But instead, I have placed my bigger products at the back so that they can lay down flat. If you have any of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frosts, they fit PERFECTLY in these dividers!

 

Last, but certainly not least, we have the amazing lip drawer. This huge Vanity Collections lip divider is great for all your lip glosses AND lipsticks as it contains 11 higher rows and 7 shorter rows and it can hold a total of 180 products! As you all should know from my previous blog posts, I am a collector of Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks, so it was super important for me to have a drawer insert that doesn’t waste space and that fits all my products. I had previously used the smaller lipstick holders, but as my collection grew, I know I needed something that could hold WAAAAAY more products.

 

Vanity Collections not only does drawer inserts, but they also have a wide range of desktop storage too. Some other goodies I have picked up from them include the brush holder and the large marble makeup bag. I love the brush holder and use it for lipliner/lippie stix storage as well as to hold a few setting sprays and brushes. The makeup bag is a newer product for me. But I am excited to finally have something big enough and sturdy enough to hold a heck of a lot of makeup.

I have included some videos that I took back when I moved and had to reorganise my makeup, if you want to check them out!

Beauty Bay Haul | Bragging Rights Sale

Hi Beauties!

It’s been a hot minute since I made an order on Beauty Bay, but when I saw that they were having a ‘Bragging Rights’ sale, with up to 30% off, I thought I would pick myself up a bargain or two. I love shopping on Beauty Bay because even though it is a UK run site, they ship to so many places all over the world, AND they have all their prices converted to whatever currency you need. So there are no nasty surprises when the conversion rates get taken out from your bank account. Another added bonus is that they have free shipping once you spend over a certain amount. Who doesn’t love that?!

Let’s get into looking at some bargains!

IMG_0119

Firstly, I had been wanting to try out the highly talked about Revolution Makeup London Concealer for quite some time now. So, when I saw it on Beauty Bay for only $5 AUD I took advantage and picked up a few shades. I find it hard to know exactly what colour I will need for my skin tone, but I figured that if I grabbed a SUPER pale shade and two fair to light shades then surely something will match me with either my natural skin or fake tanned skin.

IMG_0116

Similarly, I had been wanting to try out the Revolution Makeup London Foundation for a while now also. It was on Beauty Bay for only $11 AUD (which is cheaper than some of the foundations found at our versions of drugstores)! Again, I picked up two different shades, one lighter and one darker. Fingers crossed that I can get a match to my skin tone.

IMG_0117

Yet another foundation that I had been wanting to try was the Milani Cosmetics Conceal and Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation. I have heard mixed reviews about this product, but when I saw it on the site for only $14 AUD, I knew it was too good of a deal to pass up. I only picked up one shade in this foundation so fingers crossed I can make it work.

IMG_0118

The last foundation that I picked up was the L.A. Girl Pro.Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Liquid Foundation (longest name in the world or what?). The packaging of this product looks so much like the Makeup Forever HD Foundation, and it was only $13 AUD! which is another product I hope to try out one day. I haven’t heard much about this product but I am excited to give it a go.

IMG_0121

As many of you may know, I am a devoted collector of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks. There were a few early shades that I wasn’t able to get my hands on when they were first released. So I took advantage of the sale and grabbed two shades of the Liquid Lipsticks for only $20 AUD each. I grabbed the shades Allegedly and Skin Tight. They are both stunning nude shades so I am sure I will love them.

IMG_0120

Last, but certainly not least, I picked up another Anastasia Beverly Hills no.12 Large Synthetic Duo Brow Brush. I already own one of these brushes and I use it every single time I do my makeup. However, I wanted another one so I can have two separate brushes for my brow pomade and my brow powder.

Did you pick up anything from the Beauty Bay Bragging Rights Sale? What product from this post would you most like to try? Leave me a comment and let me know! 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!

It was on Beauty Bay for only $11 AUD (which is cheaper than some of the foundations found at our versions of drugstores)! Again, I picked up two different shades, one lighter and one darker. Fingers crossed that I can get a match to my skin tone.

Yet another foundation that I had been wanting to try was the Milani Cosmetics Conceal and Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation. I have heard mixed reviews about this product, but when I saw it on the site for only $14 AUD, I knew it was too good of a deal to pass up. I only picked up one shade in this foundation so fingers crossed I can make it work.

The last foundation that I picked up was the L.A. Girl Pro.Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Liquid Foundation (longest name in the world or what?). The packaging of this product looks so much like the Makeup Forever HD Foundation, and it was only $13 AUD! which is another product I hope to try out one day. I haven’t heard much about this product but I am excited to give it a go.

As many of you may know, I am a devoted collector of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks. There were a few early shades that I wasn’t able to get my hands on when they were first released. So I took advantage of the sale and grabbed two shades of the Liquid Lipsticks for only $20 AUD each. I grabbed the shades Allegedly and Skin Tight. They are both stunning nudey shades so I am sure I will love them.

Last, but certainly not least, I picked up another Anastasia Beverly Hills no.12 Large Synthetic Duo Brow Brush. I already own one of these brushes and I use it every single time I do my makeup. However, I wanted another one so I can have two seperate brushes for my brow pomade and my brow powder.

Did you pick up anything from the Beauty Bay Bragging Rights Sale? What product from this post would you most like to try? Leave me a comment and let me know! 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!
