Paul & Joe Beaute – Cheek Color & Compact Case

Paul & Joe Beaute – Cheek Color & Compact Case

I do love make-up that looks beautiful in its packaging, and there is no brand more pretty that Paul & Joe Beaute. Their limited edition feline and floral packaging is second to none with many pieces being so beautiful that you just want to admire them and almost don’t want to use them. A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to Cheek Color 10 (Ombrage) and the Spring 2014 Collection Kitten Print Compact Case (number 002). Shade 10 was the most natural of the Cheek Colors that I could find, it is a pressed powder blusher that consists of a large rose-pink section and a thinner tan colour strip. I love the fact that the pressed powder has the Paul & Joe ‘PJ’ logo imprinted into it, I think it makes it looks really classy. You can see the Cheek Color shades really clearly from the close-up image above. The tan strip of colour has a feint shimmer to it, you can see the glittery particles shining. The...

MeMeMe – Cherub’s Blush Cheek & Lip Tint

MeMeMe – Cherub’s Blush Cheek & Lip Tint

This full-size 12ml bottle of Cherub’s Blush Cheek & Lip Tint from Me Me Me Cosmetics came in my October Glossybox. I’m not one to use liquid tints generally, although I have used Benefit’s popular Bene-tint on occasions, but I was wondering if this product could convert me. Cherub’s Blush is a dark red liquid contained within a little bottle – it looks a bit like a nail varnish bottle and it has a brush attached inside the lid just like a nail varnish bottle too. The liquid tint can be used on both lips and cheeks to give a rosy tint, just by applying a dab with the brush and then blending it with the fingers. The swatch image below shows how the tint looks when it is first applied, and then after it has been blended. The first thing I noticed about this product after taking the swatch images is that it REALLY stains the fingers! This put me off Cherub’s Blush a lot – who wants...

Benefit – Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit

Benefit – Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit

I’m a sucker for a make-up kit and I just ADORE Benefit’s make-up box collections. This one is Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit and it’s one of my favourites. It contains five of Benefit’s most popular products: High Beam – enhances the complexion with a luminescent shine Benetint – a ‘sexy flush in a bottle’ for lips and cheeks Sugarbomb powder and brush – creates a natural radiance for cheeks Sugarbomb Ultra Plush – a luxurious and silky lip gloss High Beam is one of Benefit’s bestsellers and it’s easy to see why. This satiny pink liquid highlighter can be used all over the face for a radiant glow, or just as a spot highlighter on cheekbones. See the swatch image below – I haven’t rubbed it in too much so you can clearly see the shimmer. I use this all the time, it’s lovely in Summer, and if you have a great complexion you can just wear a little High Beam on it’s own on your cheeks for a...
