Continuing my love affair with theBalm products, I've recently been trying out their line of lipsticks, and they are LOVELY. This is my favourite shade, it's a gorgeous pinky coral with a touch of gold, and super wearable. The two things that impressed me most with this is how good it felt on (really moisturising, and tingly thanks to the peppermint essential oil), and how long lasting it was. They're nice and creamy, and have an almost matte-but-not-quite finish, aka no feathering! As with all products from theBalm, they're cruelty-free- YAY! High five to these.
This palette is a babe. Look at it. It's a BABE! I love Sleek products, because apart from having nice, um, sleek packaging, they're completely affordable, and are of really high quality. Oh So Special has an awesome range of matte and shimmer shadows, in the prettiest colours...I can't even count how many looks you could create with this. The pigmentation is high, but I would suggest using a primer/base with it just to keep it all in place. I'm going to use this today- I need to.
If you're like me and obsessed with multi-purpose beauty items, you really need this in your life. It can be used in a number of ways- as a highlighter for use in contouring, as an eye shadow, or as a blush. It is THE prettiest shade of pinky peach and universally flattering. The pigmentation is ridiculously high, so a compact of this will last you for absolute ages. It's definitely my favourite out of the Lou Manizer collection (although I do love the others)- I use it most on the tops of my cheekbones and it makes my skin look all glowy. LOVE it.
I LOVE discovering brands I haven't tried before- and what makes it even better is when it's a New Zealand brand! Sorbet produces a wide range of body products, all in solid bar form. I'm going to talk more about them in a full review soon, but i HAD to share my favourite so far. This is basically x3 bottles of body lotion in a block, and smells so good it should be illegal. It has organic coconut oil, organic cocoa butter, & Tahitian Vanilla- and it makes your skin feel and smell incredible! It's completely natural & cruelty free, and just all round gorgeous. Please get some immediately from their online store listed below.
Another lovely multi-purpose product? Why not/ and given it's from ARTDECO, an awesome, affordable, easy to find brand (Farmers stores)- I'm in. Cream Rouge for Cheeks & Lips comes in 6 different shades, I have it in #22 (pictured) which is a pinky brown perfect for every day use. It's creamy and so easy to blend, and doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky like some cream-based products can. It's perfect to pop in your handbag when you're going out, because you can easily pat some onto your lips or cheeks. The texture makes it easy to build, and I love the simple black shiny packaging. I need more!
