1st: MY GOODNESS IT'S HOT!
2nd: here's the swatches from the lovely, new, Benefit Cosmetics, #summer releases! I promise this time there are photos of Hoola Lite (dunno why it didn't attach before)! Dandelion Twinkle was made to go with #bronzers. It's the perfect #highlighter to get a natural, sun-kissed, #chiselled look or used alone for the new #nontouring craze!
If you look at it in the sunlight you can see the pearly, champagne tones really pop. Away from the light, you can see more of the pinky-white tones.
It's quite a bit like their cream stick highlighter Watts Up, but with much more of a #shimmer & #glitter.
If you keep swiping then you'll see I swatched #DandelionTwinkle over the top of the Hoola stick & it was like a clever enhanced - they blend together elegantly.
Quickie Contour Stick makes #contouring easy! It fits perfectly under cheekbones, along with the edges of the face & down the sides of the nose. It blends really well & actually dries surprisingly fast.
I was worried the #contourstick wouldn't last long on the skin because it was so soft & slightly melted on arrival. However, this stuff didn't budge! Even removing the swatches took washing my arm three times: twice with shower gel & once with hand wash (coz it was there & shower gel wasn't working!). So, you'll definitely need water soluble makeup remover for this.
#HoolaLite is the perfect #Hoola addition - I'm glad #BenefitCosmetics finally realised that not everyone can wear as dark a shade! It always. It always bothered me that they swore blind the #originalHoola would suit all skin shades. Finally, us pale peps can enjoy Hoola (lite!) It has more yellowy-beige undertones, which is nicer than it sounds & is closer to a lot of naturally paler skin tones. Especially those who've neutral or yellow undertones.
Finally got my hands on these two..one was a premeditated and the other one was an impulse purchase . So lets start with Nars Orgasm liquid blush. Some reviews said that its the perfect bridal flush and I have to agree. Such a gorgeous angelic soft pink. The tiny gold shimmers dont get in the way for the pink to show and instead creates this glowing effect. And I only need a small amount for it to show on my medium tan skin . Now the Charlotte Gainsbourg hydrating glow tint. It definitely has an added chic factor, the concept and packaging are just on point.
Besides the emotional value, I do love the product. It is an easy everyday no hassle product. I adore the mousse -y texture.
It is very very light, even lighter than Mac Face and Body, just right for those wanting a subtle filter on their face ( you will need concealing for skin imperfections). Its definitely gonna be my quick fix for my 5 minutes make up.
Verdict: very happy with my purchase.
