First Fenty Beauty haul

dsc_6660

The Danish Sephora website is having a winter sale these days, and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to finally try out Fenty Beauty. I picked up one of the Killawatt Freestyle highlighters and two of the Mattemoiselle lipsticks.

I decided to go with palest highlighter duo, and it’s in the shades Lightning Dust and Fire Crystal. Both shades are really pigmented, but as you can probably see, Fire Crystal is more intense and glittery compared to Lightning Dust. I’ve only worn each shade once so far, but they’re super pretty and I really like them. I really like the packaging too.

I’ve been wanting to try this particular shade ever since the Mattemoiselle lipsticks launched, and it wasn’t on sale (the other shade was), but I decided that it was finally time to get it. The shade is called Saw-C and it’s such a fun, bright orange. It appears to have more yellow in it than my other orange lipsticks which is why I was drawn to this colour.

I also purchased the shade Spanked which is a more neutral colour, and now that I’m really into wearing colourful eyeshadow at the moment, I thought I would add another neutral lipstick to my collection to go with those colourful looks.

Remembering pink

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. These days, I’m so inspired to do all kinds of different make-up looks and especially colourful ones. This look made me remember how much I love pink eye shadow.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday January 9. I’ve been trying to find the perfect outfit to wear with these 2000s boots, and this was it. I just love the green and fuchsia/cranberry colour combo.

Summer in winter

First impressions: Essence Melted Chrome eyeshadow

dsc_6514

If often check out the make-up section at my local supermarket, and I was very intrigued by these Essence Melted Chrome eyeshadows, so I decided to try them out.

first impressions

They claim to be have a liquid chrome-effect, and they definitely do. I applied the eyeshadow with my finger, which was very easy, and it felt liquid to the touch. As you can see, it has nice pigmentation and it’s very shiny. In the pictures above, I’m wearing the middle shade, which is called 02 iconic, and as you can see, it looks a lot less gold on the eyes. It looks more champagne though it is still a pretty shade. It looked very nice all throughout the day, and it was very easy to remove (I used micellar water). All in all, this is a very nice affordable product that makes it easy to add glitter to an eye look without having a lot of fallout.
