Morphe palettes have been on my radar for a long time but I’ve never thought to give one a go. I get slightly overwhelmed by large palettes, even my Zoeva 15 pan Nude Spectrum palette scares me sometimes, you guys know I’m into duos and quads. BUT, my sister came round last week with the Morphe 35OM Matte Nature Glow Palette for me to borrow for a couple days and let’s just say I’m slightly converted. Let me tell you why. View Post
Back in March my sister headed over to the US and travelled around, during her travels she very kindly picked me up some American beauty bits to try out. Now she did the same thing a few years back and I loved everything she got me, so I was really excited to see what she picked up this time. We only just managed to exchange everything so all of these are very much first impressions. If you want any individual reviews do let me know as always!
So I’ve shown you my nail polishes on display, my lipsticks on display and my eyeshadow palette collection (parts 1, 2 and 3) and I asked on Instagram what everyone wanted next and blushers seemed like a popular choice. Now I think this might be quite a long series, potentially with five parts eek as I have quite a large blush collection! For years blush was always my thing. I didn’t really wear lipstick on a daily basis and I just had a small selection of eyeshadow palettes. Nowadays, I don’t buy as many as I used to but they still get a lot of love! I rarely skip out on blush. I tried to divide my collection into colour ways for this series, and I’m starting off with the peachy pinks!
I’ve always been so fussy about mascara due to my ultra-straight lashes, but since having an LVL lash lift I’ve found I can be way less fussy. It didn’t take me long to start rummaging through my collection as I have a ton of unopened mascaras – whoops. I decided to try out the Rimmel Wonder’full Mascara as I liked the sound of it being enriched with argan oil after all the chemicals that have been on my lashes. I’ve been using it for a couple weeks now so I thought I’d report back.
No matter how many tests I do, I can never figure out whether I’m warm or cool toned. I like silver and gold jewellery, my veins are a greeny-blue and I both tan and burn, so I’m coming to the conclusion that I’m that mysterious neutral toned. Because of this constant confusion, I’m always switching up between cool and warm toned makeup, generally, my foundations are warm but eye makeup, lips, blush and bronzers I really swap between. This month I’m going more extreme than ever, I’m all about warm tones. This is perfect timing with summer starting so expect lots of bronzey tones in my makeup bag. So original for summer right?!
