Collective HAUL

Heyy Beauties,

How are you all doing? :)

As promised on our Facebook page, here is a Collective Haul of products I bought online.

First off, I had been contemplating for quite a some time, to buy some false lashes and good lash glue. So, I went searching on e-bay last week and found the Duo Lash glue, that everyone raves about on Youtube and some lashes. I found the glue for 7 euro including shipping, and 10 pairs of lashes for about 3 euro with shipping. Great deal in my opinion.


Last Saturday I was browsing around the ELF Cosmetics site and I noticed that they were offering free shipping during that weekend, therefore I could not pass up that opportunity and bought some ELF products, since it was about 6 months from my last ELF purchase.

My first two choices were two lipsticks, Gypsy and Flirtatious. Love both colors and I have to say I was impressed by their quality; very pigmented, apply smoothly and also have a pleasant smell.

Gypsy and Flirtatious

The following are swatches of these two lipsticks:


Then I chose two blushers and a bronzer because I noticed that I really do not have almost any blushers and bronzers, and the only one I had broke. The first blush is Blushing, then Bronzed and Sun Kissed.

 The following are the swatches, in order mentioned above:

Next, I decided to try out the Makeup Remover Pen, that Dyna at Dyna's Random Blog, raves about, and I must say it really does work. Last but not the least, I picked up and Angled Blush Brush because I needed one for contouring.

Those were all the products that I bought,

Hope you enjoyed this post,

Until Next time,

Take Care,

Jessica :)

Review: NYX Cream Blush

Hello Beauties,

The cream blushes have 3.5g of product which is a fair amount for the price. I have the shades CB 02 Natural and CB08 Hot Pink. 

Natural is a light nude-pink shade hence the name Natural, while Hot flush is a fuchsia colour and really goes bright on the cheek. The cream blush is really creamy, soft and one should use a minimal amount. The blushes add the right flush to the cheeks without looking heavy or obvious that one is wearing blush. After applying a face primer, I use my finger - dotting it to my cheeks for a natural effect, then blending it with a small stipple brush. Afterwards, I set the cream blush with a powder blush or a pressed powder for staying power. Those who have dry skin may leave this step out since it creates a very dewy finish. It lasts all day and is very buildable and natural-looking.

There are a lot of shade to choose from; ranging from natural to reds, which can compliment every skin tone. These blushes do not have any scent. Nyx Cosmetics can be found on , . For our maltese viewers both websites ship to Malta. *yay*.

Take Care,

Essence & Catrice Haul

Hello Beauties,

Two days ago I visited Tony's Pharmacy, for the first time, and bought some Essence and Catrice products to try them out.

I bought 3 eye shadows, 2 from Essence and 1 from Catrice. The first two are '57, In the clouds' and '32, Jazzed up'.

The Catrice eye shadow is '510, in love with hulk' (love the name hehe)

Next, 2 lipsticks, one from Essence and another from Catrice. The Essence one is a very sheer baby pink color called '01, frosted' and the Catrice lipstick is a very bright coral color called '050, Princess Peach'.

I really needed a new blush therefore I picked up Catrice Multi Color Blush in the color '010, Riviera Rose'. I really love this color and it can also be used as a highlight since it has 4 different colors. 

I also wanted to try out Catrice lip glosses therefore I bought Catrice color show in the color '090, No.9 is mine'. 

Last but not the least, I bought Essence Long lasting eye pencil, which is a sheer golden color and its called '04, look at me'.

What are your favourite products from Essence and Catrice?
What do you think about Essence foundations? I want to try them out :)

Looking forward for my next Essence & Catrice purchase,

Take Care
