A closer look at... the new-and-limited Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Duo [Sand Castle/Mint'd Mojito] by Fenty Beauty...

 Fenty Beauty have just dropped three new duo-highlighter compacts as part of their limited-edition summer line, which they describe as "weightless, long-wear cream-powder hybrid highlighter duos with a hyper-metallic finish" ones, which double up as eyeshadows.

I've never been interested in Fenty Beauty as a whole; I bought their Christmas 2017 eyeshadow palette and didn't like it [I didn't blog it as it sold out before I'd used it enough times for a informed review], and I've only bothered using the stick highlight and Killawatt highlight that I recieved as Christmas presents a few times, so haven't bothered to review them either - they're neither good or bad, so they just bored me too much to be able to form a decent opinion on them. Their foundation, primer and cream sticks aren't suitable for drier skin types and their regular highlighters are a basic shade range, so I've not paid too much attention to what they've been up to.

Could that be about to change? Their new 'Beach Please' summer range is much more interesting shade range-wise, so I've decided to forget my previous experiences and give the brand a fresh try...

Are they dupes? PS... Love Noir, versus Lancome La vie est belle.



I tried Love Noir from PS... [Primark's own brand] as I really enjoy Lancome's La vie est belle, but the speed with which I went through two bottles meant that it was time to look for a cheaper 'everyday' version, so that my third bottle can be used more sparingly. 

The reviews on Fragrantica pointed me in the direction of Love Noir as being a dupe for La Vie est Belle, so lets find out if it's as good as they said it is...

A closer look at... the Kiss Of Fire highlight & Eyeshadow Palette [by Revolution Beauty]...


I decided to take advantage of the recent "free postage with every order" promotion Revolution Beauty had on their site to pick up the new eye/cheek palette that I'd just seen on Instagram.

The Kiss Of Fire palette is a collaboration with YouTube-based MUA Carmi MUA. I'd never heard of Carmi before finding this palette, so the attached name will have zero bearing over my thoughts on the product.

Isn't she a peach? Reviewing the Royal Peach eyeshadow palette by Kylie Cosmetics...

I recently discovered that the permanent eyeshadow palettes from Kylie Cosmetics are a higher quality compared to the limited edition ones, so when they had one of their "40% off selected items" flash sales at the start of the year I decided to pick up one to try - and this time I decided to go for the first palette from the brand that I had been interested in, but never got because of the numerous bad reviews regarding the bad aroma it had

Yep. I going for the Royal Peach eyeshadow palette today, so lets take a deep breath and jump into the details, swatches and demos...

Happy 10th Anniversary KvD Beauty, let's celebrate with a review for the 10th Anniversary highlighter...

The 10th Anniversary collection arrived to Debenhams about a fortnight ago and the third and final thing from the 6-piece collection that I jumped on was the highlighter [my heart wants the brush set too, but my head and credit card both say no].

As the UK only gets a small portion of KvD's limited edition items to put on sale, I'm not going to blather on and just jump straight into the interesting stuff...

Happy 10th Anniversary KvD Beauty, let's celebrate with a review for the 10th Anniversary lipstick...

The 10th Anniversary collection arrived to Debenhams a few weeks ago, so I jumped straight on the lipstick [as well as the previously reviewed eyeshadow palette] and started wearing it almost daily, gathering my thoughts for a review - it looked stunning paired with the emerald green eyeshadow 😀 

As the UK only gets a small portion of KvD's limited edition items to put on sale, I'm not going to blather on and just jump straight into the interesting stuff...
