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,

What's in my everyday make up bag?

Hi beauties,

I keep my everyday's essentials in a small Makeup bag on my vanity, since it's much easier to reach in the morning rather than going through loads of products.

E.L.F Mineral Infused Face Primer

This primer is amzing. It helps to keep oil at bay, therefore no retocuhing is needed throughout the day.

Rimmel Match Perfection in shade 040 Soft Beige

I use this concealer under my eyes to conceal my under eye circles.

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I use this primer in order to keep my eyeshadow stay put throughout the day.

Sigma F30 brush

With the sigma F30 (a large powder brush with the powder), works perfectly to set my concealer and mattify my face.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder  

Inglot 330M (Matte)

This eye shadow is a light beige. I use it in the inner corners and brow bone.

Eyelash curler 

Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night mascara

I'd curl my eyelashes first, then put on mascara.

NYX Blush in the shade PB03 Angel 

I apply my blush with a small stipple brush in order to achieve a natural finish.
Stipple brush

What's in your everyday bag?

Take care,

My Favourite Lip Combination

Hello Beauties :)

These past few weeks I have been wearing bold lips every time I go out, I think they brighten up every outfit and makeup look. In my opinion I think the perfect bold lip is MAC Magenta lip liner together with MAC Rebel lipstick. They make up the perfect pair :)

This is how I apply it:

Step 1:- Before applying the lip liner, always apply your favorite lip balm first so as to moisturize your lips and to have a smoother application and in the end a better color outcome. This step should be done for every type of bold lip that you decide to wear. It makes a big difference.

Step 2:- Apply the Lip liner around the perimeter of your lips and also fill in the entire lip. This will help to make the lipstick color more defined and prevent the lipstick from feathering throughout the day. In this case I applied MAC Magenta Lip liner. The reason why I apply the lip liner all over the lip is because when the lip stick fades the lip liner leaves a tint so you do not need to keep re touching your lip stick all the time.

Step 3:- Apply the bold lipstick of your choice to your lip. I prefer to apply straight from the tube because I find that the color payoff is better this way when compared to applying the lipstick with a lip brush. If I do any mistakes I arrange them by applying some concealer around the lip. In this case I applied MAC Rebel lipstick. You could also choose to apply some clear lip gloss to have a shinier finish, but in this case I prefer a somewhat matte finish, I think that the lip gloss is too much.

I hope you like this Post, if there are any suggestions for future post please leave them in the comments section.

Take Care
