I’m not a huge fan of the packaging,but the flashy gold is not so bad..imageInside the compact there’s a mirror which is very convenient if you ever needed to touch-up while out.imageIts has a plastic cover that acts as a shield to protect the product,which I love because highlighters can be messy sometimes. imageimageimageLucy is a rosy copper shade that is truly stunning. Its pigmented and provides the perfect subtle rosy glow all over the cheeks. imageimageYou can also use it as a blush topper to add luminosity to your face and it will look absolutely stunning…It’s truly a gorgeous shade and am tempted to get Marilyn also..I love it.

L.A GIRL PRO CONCEAL HD CONCEALER – ORANGE

HEY GUYS!!

So L.A Girl recently released six new shades of their Pro Conceal HD Concealer,and the corrector shades in Yellow, Green and Orange,quickly got my attention.So I got the Orange shade and oh my,L.A Girl didn’t disappoint at all with this new shades.

imageimageL.A Girl Pro HD Concealer is a well-loved product and definitely one of my favourite concealer.I actually only discovered the wonders of Colour Correcting in the past few months and since then I haven’t done my makeup without Colour Correcting first.You can read all about Colour Correction HERE.

imageimageThe consistency is great,creamy,easy to blend (much like the LA Girl concealers), super pigmented and a little goes a long way.The corrector does a great job at hiding dark circles, I simply tap on a little of the corrector to the areas that need correcting and blend until the dark circles disappear.

imageIt spreads so easily,does not move after it sets,and lasts all day. It covers everything I need covered seamlessly.You just have to be careful not to apply too much else it creases. Trust me, I know as it happened to me the first time I used it.

I must say this tho,before trying L.A Girl Orange Concealer, have been using:

Mac Prep + Prime Peach Lustre

The Orange Concealer from Mac Correct and Conceal Palette and

The Orange from Anastasia Contour Palette in dark.

Mac Prep + Prime Peach Lustre is what I use the most,which at this point am satisfied with,because my dark circles are mild and it does a good job at covering them up.

imageFor my skin tone Mac nw43  (check HERE for more on my foundation shades) and the fact that my dark circles are mild, I feel LA Girl Orange Concealer is too much for me.I was actually looking for a corrector more pigmented than the Mac Peach Lustre,and L.A Girl Orange Concealer is way more pigmented.But after using it,I decided it was too pigmented for me.so I will stick to my Mac Prep + Prime Peach Lustre..

With that said,I love this product and am very impressed with the quality of this corrector.If you are looking for a good and inexpensive corrector,to cover dark circles,because trust me it does a good job at doing that.I would recommend this product.(please and please a little goes a long way).And if you find it too pigmented,you can just mix little of the corrector and a concealer that is your shade to reduce the intensity, and apply where needed.Its worth giving a try,and for the price($2.50 equivalent to 1500Naira or so)it’s a good deal.

MAC GIAMBATTISTA VALLI COLLECTION(LIMITED EDITION)

Hello Beauties!!

imageimageimageimageimageMac Giambattista Villa Collection.

The Mac Giambattista Villa Collection features five lipsticks,(Bianca,Tats,Charlotte,Margherita and Eugenie )and a shimmery potted gloss , but it’s the packaging that is sure to have each one sold out in minutes. Each Lipstick comes in a coloured packaging reflective of the shade inside,a detail that we haven’t seen from Mac before and one that lends a beautiful touch to any makeup vanity.Each shade has a Matte texture, with gorgeous pigmentation and long-lasting wear. If you’re already a matte lip lover then this lipstick should have your attention.So I got four shades from this collection.TATS,MARGHERITA,CHARLOTTE AND EUGENIE.

imageimageimageimageTats – A bright hot pink,with a matte finish.Am not a fan of bright pink,but this hot pink is gorgeous..

imageimageimageimageMargherita – An orange-y peach,with a matte finish.I was thinking this would be my least favourite ,but surprisingly I love this shade.It applies smoothly and also very pigmented.

imageimageimageimageCharlotte – A warm red,also with a matte finish.This is absolutely my favourite from the collection.Its too gorgeous.

imageimageimageimageEugenie – A deep burgundy,with a matte finish.I love dark lipsticks and this is a beautiful deep shade.

Most of the shades are extremely wearable, except for Bianca B(not pictured here), which would most likely only suit the palest skin tones .. The rest are quite universally flattering and they are also very pigmented. The outer colour of the lipstick tube matches the inner colour but has the same shape and feel as a regular tube of Mac Lipstick.

Leave your comment below and let me know what you guys think of this collection.And TGIF.Have fun and be safe.

URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION – EDEN

Hey Guys!!

imageimageUrban Decay Primer Potion in Eden.This eyeshadow primer is bomb.

If you own  Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original you will understand how difficult it is to blend it in order not to have patches or lets say white particles,which can be frustrating and difficult to blend your eyeshadow smoothly.So I was on the internet the other day when this cute one popped up and got my attention,I immediately ordered and after using it for the first time,I got hooked…

imageimageimageI think Urban Decay Primer Potion Eden in this packaging,is exclusive to Sephora,am not sure,but its permanent in a different tube.Eden is yellow-toned,it covers any discolouration on the lid and blends beautifully,there is no white particles whatsoever,its matte and increases the colour vibrancy of eyeshadows…Its will keep your eyeshadow intact without creasing all day long.imageimageimageIt comes with a wand which I love so much and makes it easy to control the amount of the product you need,which is very little.

I love it.I hear a lot of people including myself complain about the particles Urban decay Original leaves behind,this post is for you guys.Its worth trying.

Have a lovely day Beauties..
