The 15N Morphe palette:
Starting off with the mattes;
The matte shades were pigmented and easy to blend. However both the matte shades “Selfie” and “Goals” are really similar when blended on the lid, so in my opinion it would have been better if one of these shades was a darker brown than “Hello”.
The shimmers, are quite the opposite. They were flaky. It was really hard to apply those shimmery shades on the lid, I tried a dry brush, wet brush and even my fingers and the pay off was really poor. I love me a good shimmery lid, and these shimmers did not deliver. (Swipe left to see a picture of my eyes, I have the three shimmer shades “Unique”, “Talent” and “Creativity”. You can see that there’s barely any shimmer on my lid)
On the other hand, I appreciate the colour scheme, instead of it being fully browns and nudes or plums, its a mixture of both. So you can only come up with so many looks.
I posted pictures of the palette both with flash and natural lighting.

I also put up a picture of all the makeup products I have used alongside this palette.
Trying out @lorealskin Hydra Genuis Aloe Water today! It’s in a glass bottle which I think is really lovely! I picked this up from @superdrug for £6.65 reduced from £10! The GOOD NEWS is they are still this price. This one is for dry and sensitive skin and it is recommended to be used every morning and evening, alone or after using your serum. Only using one pump to the face and be neck. This can be be replaced by your usual daily moisturiser.
I’m using this as a moisturiser under my foundation, it smells amazing! It glides really easily on the skin, however, I used two pumps to cover my face as I am quite generous with products. Can’t wait to use this over the next few weeks!
@kikomilanorussia , определенно та фирма, продукты которой уже пару лет неизменно присутствуют в моём ежедневном макияже. Хочу сегодня поделиться моими самыми любимыми из них:
• мой абсолютный фаворит из всех продуктов от @kikomilanorussia - это фиксирующая рассыпчатая пудра INVISIBLE TOUCH. Уже год пользуюсь этой пудрой и души в ней не чаю. Каждый день входу
•хайлайтер RADIANT TOUCH(оттенок 100) и контур SCULPTING TOUCH(оттенок 200) в стиках тоже заслуживают отдельного упоминания. Очень мягкие и хорошо тушуются 🙏
• Однушка теней WATER EYESHADOW в оттенке 200 Champagne. Очень красиво смотрится на веке, особенно при нанесении влажной кистью. #makeuproutine#makeup#makeupreview#kikomilano#kikomilanocosmetics#kikomilanorussia
Today let’s compare @narsissist liquid blush Orgasm with @danielsandlermakeup watercolour liquid blush in So Pretty!
Color wise, i really think they’re so so so similar! And both has fine sparkles in it too. If i have to examine them really2 closely, I would say the sparkles in #narsorgasm is more gold tone (i dont think you can even catch it in photo, but trust me in real life #nars one is slightly warmer).
Review for consistency, kindly check my previous post :)
You know whats my problem with luxury products? Its that they are expensive so I expect great performance from it. I expect this to feel luxurious and work like a proper mascara.
Sadly I was so disappointed
What it claims: “Creates instant volume with the simple power of a squeeze. By pumping the soft tube, you generously coat the brush and soften the creamy, rich mascara formula inside for a perfect, fresh application, every time. The special bounce-effect brush features ultra-supple bristles that load lashes in a single sweep, creating daring, pumped-up volume without clumping. This is lash volume pushed to the extreme. “
The @diormakeup Pump N’ Volume mascara was a recent purchase to change up from my usual favorite Givenchy mascara.
What a waste of money tbh. I have alot of regrets.
The idea of this mascara is that you can squeeze it to get as much product you need on the wand.
Used it like that and I hated it, used it like a regular mascara and I hate it.
With the first coat of mascara, I was impressed. It lengthened and gave me volume. After two coats it was a bit clumpy but I decided to manage this and brush through my eyelashes.
Throughout the day you can FEEL your lashes feeling like plastic and it starts flaking like crazy.
My sister tried it (desperate to see if this is only bad on me) and she told me how she could feel like she can literally peel the mascara off her lashes.
This mascara can’t be applied for more than two coats, it clumps up like crazy.You can’t use this on the bottom lashes since it transfers.Also the packaging just felt so underwhelming.
I was SO sad over this purchase and its mostly because when I tried it in store it looked amazing.
You can get the @lorealmakeup Lash Paradise or @samoacosmetics Oh La Lash mascara for half the price.
If you are looking for something more luxurious try the @givenchyofficial Noir Couture.
I want to say you can get this from Feel22 and use my code but seriously don’t buy it😂
Want to spoil your skin and be in a constant state of summer all year round? ☀️ look no further, @thebodyshop has brought out a fantastic range that leaves your skin glowing, radiant and silky smooth 😍.
If you have normal skin, you can get away as using this as a moisturizer but if you have dry skin like me you will definitely need to moisturizer it first. .
This product has a silk like/silicone texture and has a beautiful citrus fragrance 🍊 and works best as a serum and primer.
I use this mostly as a primer and I don’t think I’ll ever buy a normal primer again as this serum has so many added benefits and great properties why would you not want to spoil your skin?.
It only requires one pump per use (a little goes a long way) so even though it’s around R250 retail price, it lasts really long (I’ve had mine for 2 months and it’s not even half way through)
It really smoothes my complexion and allows for a really easy application of foundation 🎖. And my skin feels as soft as a baby’s bum! 🍑.
I found its perfect use is in the morning after cleansing and moisturizing and before make-up or after a long day out and about (possibly sun exposed) and your skin just needs a little pick-me-up.
This little guy is an all round winner winner chicken dinner and I’m looking forward to trying the vitamin C peel.. Has anyone tried it and what are your thoughts? Let me know below!📝🧡
Tried @maccosmetics #falselashesmascara
The black so intense, just like it says and gives a really nice volume.
I probably put on 4-5 coats and no lash curlers used so you can see what it really does. I wouldn't mind a wee bit more length if I'm honest but as you can see my naked lashes are really pathetic, short, light and pointing in the wrong direction (waawaa poor me) so it's done a good job really.
Desde @youzzspain me hicieron llegar este pack para rutina capilar y lo he estado probando estos días!
- Mascarilla Color Vive
- Aceite Extraordinario
ADORO el aceite, ya lo conocía y lo he usado desde hace muchos años, no engrasa, deja el pelo suave, sellado y muy brillante, el mejor que he probado!
La mascarilla es genial para gente que como yo tiene el cabello teñido, lo deja bien suave, hace que tu pelo brille mucho más y el color perdure 👌🏻
¿Los habéis probado?

[ product review! 🧐 ]
wearability: 4-5 hours
ideal use: everyday
do i recommend? 50/50 ⚖️
— 📦 —
i’m a fan of anything that claims to be long-wearing, and when maybelline came it with this foundation not long ago, i jumped right aboard! the packaging is nice and sleek (however don’t touch the white lid with dirty fingers- foundation stains easily on it!) and there’s a fairly large colour range. however, i found my shade () dull and unflattering, which doesn’t usually happen to me with this brand.. 🤔
— 🚨 —
the wear is fairly nice and the coverage is medium, which i like for everyday wear. it applies well and ticks most boxes, but unfortunately, the shade i picked up is dull and doesn’t complement my skin well.
— 💓 —
the lesson here is to pick your shade more carefully than i did! what has been your experience with this foundation?
(🇹🇭 in first comment) It’s so nice to see Thai brands making a mark in the skincare world! I’ve come across a lot of brands that boast the same quality as international brands - I’ll make sure to keep them in my posting rotation, so you guys can check them out!
The @amira_thailand Organic Argan Oil 100%* contains cold-pressed Moroccan argan oil that is rich in vitamin E, omega 6 and omega 9. It helps hydrate and balance the skin, fight off free radicals and help replenish the skin for a smoother, brighter complexion. It also helps with oil control by tricking the skin into thinking its already got excess oil in order to stop oil production, which makes it suitable for all skin types including oily skin! .
I use the Organic Argan Oil 100% to substitute for my night cream by warming it on the palm of my hands and applying it on my face after my serums. The oil is super versatile, so you can also use it on the ends of your hair to repair split ends, and also on dry patches on your body.
I’m really enjoying this product, particularly when I’m using active ingredients that can be drying like retinol. The oil takes a while to fully absorb, but the hydration really holds! I have dry skin and a slightly oily t-zone, and I think this oil has done a great job with balancing my overall complexion so that the dry zones are hydrated and the oily zones are less oily.
I’ve also used it on the ends of my hair before I dry it, and its really done a good job at keeping my strands hydrated.
Overall, the product is great! The oil doesn’t feel too heavy on my face, and its really hydrating. Its also super versatile, so its perfect if you travel a lot and want a product that you can use on your face, body and hair!
Overall rating: 4/5
Value for money: 4/5
Suitable skin type: all skin types

Hoy os traigo una breve demo de un producto que he adquirido recientemente.
Es la sombra en crema waterproof de la línea hipoalergénica de @maquillajebell en color negro. La compré porque se me ocurrió que podía funcionar como eyeliner.
En el vídeo que os dejo (perdón por la calidad, hoy no tengo buena luz). He mojado la sombra con un pulverizador de agua y he gritado fuerte. Ha costado que se mueva, la verdad. Aún no he probado en ojo...os iré contando, pero de momento no tiene muy mala pinta.
🌸Review: Glossier Cloud Paint (Haze)🌸
It takes months of research before I settled and brought this blush. First because I didn't think that any liquidy blush will stay on my oil spill skin. Second, it seems tiny for the price. Then I look at the weight,it looks tiny but for the price it contains lots of products.
At first,I didn't think that I will love this blush a lot. Everything change when I apply it for the first time. Use a tiny teeny bit and build it as you like don't go hard and then regret it. I like how it give the effect of a watercolor paint, natural yet buildable. It gives the perfect "this is not a blush,I'm just blushing look". How I use it is apply it by finger and dab the sponge to make it even more skin like.
The longevity is no question even for oil spill cheeks like me.It stays a good 8 hours, the longer I wear it the more natural it looks on my skin. Have you try Glossier Cloud Paint? Which one is your favorite?
Benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick review
I really wanted to love this product when I got it but It just didn't work for me. I like the idea and the stick itself the packaging is gorgeous but, the color just doesn't work for me. The color ends up looking orange and muddy on my skin, although I do have pale skin so maybe it would look nice on someone with a deeper skin tone. I did like the formula though, it was soft and rather easy to blend out.
I don't suggest buing this product if you're pale skinned, if you're deeper skin toned though this product might look good and the product is nice and easy to use if you like cream contour.
[MERCEDES] tried out the fenty primer today with the fenty foundation and my skin actually looks amazing, my pores are a lot less noticeable except on my nose but my nose pores are the size of mars so not surprised. I’ve had it on for 8hrs now and it’s not breaking apart anywhere and I’m only looking a little oily. V happy :)
