Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm (BB Cream) Review!

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be reviewing the Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm!

The packaging is awesome, it is a hot pink, glittery plastic casing. The writing is white and silver holographic. The pump is silver and easy to pump but not so easy that you don’t have control of how much comes out! I find that one pump is enough, depending on how much. Coverage you’d like – today I used one and a half.

image

The BB Cream (Beblesh Balm) is a grey colour which is perfect no matter what skin undertone you have! I find it applies looking a little odd but by the time you walk out the door it has settled to a my skin but better colour! I think it just smells like any other BB Cream!

image

I might just mention that I don’t have any major skin problems, I don’t have pimples, acne, extremely oily or dry skin, I don’t have redness. My problem is dark circles, but that has nothing to do with this product! I find that my skin looks a little “dull” and all I look for in a face product is something that will make my skin appear more bright while still showing my freckles and that is EXACTLY what this product does!

image

If you are after a full coverage product, this isn’t for you although it may work as a base for something else!

image

I love this BB Cream and I have been using it for months now, I recently purchased another! I find the best place to buy this is eBay and it costs anywhere from $8 – $15. If you’re unsure of this product you can also buy little samples or travel sizes, that’s what I started with!xx Amanda

Benefit SUGARBOMB! Review & Swatches!

Hey everyone! I got Sugarbomb by Benefit last month and I have been using it like crazy! Benefit says this Box o’ Powder “is your sugar rush flush” which is adorable! This blush has four different colours – peach, pink, plum & rose – and is described as “sweet sugary peach pink” which is pretty spot on!

image
image

I have been wearing this blush with Rockateur almost every day! I first apply Sugarbomb all over my cheek and where I would usually use a cheek highlight, I next add a layer of Rockateur and I apply this just above my contour!

image

My favourite thing about this blush combination is how beautiful and glowing it looks! I have been quite tan lately and this is just stunning, it gives a glowing, healthy sunkissed look

image

One thing that I really don’t understand about Sugarbomb is that on the product (the bottom half of the box) the image is chocolate, it’s shaved chocolate with chocolate pieces! I really don’t get it haha, it doesn’t smell like chocolate… It doesn’t look like chocolate…

image

This blush is definitely going into my favourites! I can’t imagine this blush not looking good on anyone! I would definitely repurchase this blush – if I ever get through it!

Orange Lips Alert! Innoxa Matte Lipstick in Tangerine & Invisible Lip Liner!

Hey everyone! If you already have Instagram you will already know how many competitions are held on there! So I entered an Innoxa competition, all you have to do is repost a picture to have a chance of winning, and I won!

image

For anyone who doesn’t know, Innoxa was created in France in 1920. The brand prides itself by being hypo-allergenic and good for your face! The products are also paraben free & not tested on animals, yay! Innoxa is stocked in Myer, Priceline and various pharmacies in Australia and also in New Zealand.

So today my little package arrived with a letter stating what I have won and some pretty, colorful pictures, so many pretty colours… Back to what I was saying…

image
image

The first product I have here is the Invisible Lip Shaper. According to the Innoxa website the Invisible Lip Shaper softens and contours the lips and can also be used as a lip primer. I’m super happy about this product because I don’t own a lip primer! I also like that this can be worn under any shade I like! The Invisible Lip Shaper has a baby pink pearlescent tube, the packaging is really pretty!

image

The Invisible Lip Primer makes the lips appear matte, the texture is like a combination of soft wax and a balm! I really like the way it makes my lips look! I can’t really capture that in a photo since it is invisible, of course.

image

And now for the best bit, new lipstick! I’m a serious lipstick hoarder and this lipstick is the reason I entered the competition! So here I have the Summer Matte Lipstick in the shade Tangerine! Innoxa Summer Matte Lipsticks contain Jojoba oil and vitamins C & E which will be great for my lips!

image
image
image

The colour is no joke, it is seriously Tangerine, it’s like an explosion of orange and it makes my teeth look awesomely white! This is definitely not a “grandma orange” (unless you have a really awesome grandma)! The lipstick is housed in a square silver tube with Innoxa printed on the lid. There is a colour window at the bottom that shows the colour of the lipstick inside!

If you live in Australia or New Zealand, I recommend checking out Innoxa! Both of these products retail for $14.95. The lipstick formula is so creamy and moisturizing! If you are from elsewhere in the world then I guess you’re just going to have to go without… Or wait for my awesome giveaway hint hint!

NARS Riviera Multiple Review & Swatches!

image

Hey everyone! Last month for my birthday I got a new NARS Multiple. I would say that The Multiple by NARS is one of my favourite beauty products of all time! Riviera is the third (and definitely not my last) Multiple that I now own.

image
image

NARS describes Riviera as a true pink. The colour definitely leans a little peach but it is a gorgeous shade. The best thing about Riviera is that it is the most natural looking cheek product that I have ever used. When I asked my boyfriend how it looked he asked “how does what look?” He really couldn’t tell I was wearing Riviera!

image

NARS Multiples are a huge 14g size. They contain 2g more than an original Benefit Boxed Powder which most will know is a pretty generous amount.

image
(Excuse my pale face!)

I found that Riviera has a totally different texture to Puerto Vallarta and Angelika, the texture is lighter and thinner. When I apply Angelika it is an extremely pigmented and feels almost like a mousse, Puerto Vallarta the same! Riviera is definitely more shimmery, I would describe it as a frosted finish.

Riviera is a beautiful addition to my collection and I love using it on the days when I wear less makeup, it makes me even more excited to try more Multiples!

Full Coverage Foundation Routine!

Hey everyone!

I was actually super excited because I filmed a foundation routine video and when I went to edit it there was nothing there… like my computer ate it! Soooo Annoying! Aaaaanyway, I took some photos of the products I use when I wear a more full coverage foundation.

image

image

At the moment I am loving the Maybelline Age Rewind Primer, I apply this with my fingers. I have tried the Porefessional by Benefit and I actually prefer this! Not only is this product inexpensive but it makes your skin feel amazing. If I am having a no makeup day I like to just smooth this over my T zone.

image

For foundation I mix Maybelline Super Stay Foundation & Skin 79 Super BB Cream. I mix them because I don’t like the feeling of a super thick foundation but I do like the coverage. Mixing the two also give me a perfect colour match! I mix equal parts on the back of my hand and mix with the back end of a brush, once it’s all mixed I buff it in with a rounded synthetic brush!

image

I find that the foundation gives me enough coverage so I only use concealer to highlight. I first use the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in a triangle under my eyes and blend it in. Next I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer on my dark circles and then everywhere else I want to highlight which is down my nose, between my brows & my cupids bow. I find that I get the best finish using a precision brush! It’s just like the foundation brush I use but baby sized aww!

image
image

I also use two different pressed powders to set my foundation! I use Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder on the areas that I highlighted, I use a small setting brush to apply. I use Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder everywhere else and I just pat the powder on with a dense powder brush.

image

Last of all I use Hoola by Benefit to contour. I actually use any matte bronzer to contour! I like using the MAC 168 for a softer, daytime contour and the NARS Ita brush for a more precise contour. The NARS brush makes contouring your nose foolproof!

And there we are! xx Amanda
