So sorry for not uploading a Blogmas post yesterday. However, I had an exam today. I am writing this post on Sunday so by the time I upload this I would have finished my exam!!
Ahhh so nervous. This week included lots of studying and stress!
Anyways, today’s blogmas is all about my Top 5 Favourite nail polishes at the moment and I want to share them with you all. Please also let me know what your favourite Nail Polishes are, I would love to know! Simply comment down below!
My Favourite Nail Polishes –
#5 Catrice Brown Collection Nail Polish in Shade 02 Sophisticated Vogue
I love this nail polish shade, it really reminds me of the autumn months and the leaves that change colour! I love pairing this with a dark red nail polish too!
#4 Rimmel London Rita Ora Collection in Shade 812 Pedal to the Metal
This is a pigmented and metallic grey and I just love the effect it gives to my short nails. Makes them look better than they actually are!! My nan loves this shade also hehe!
#3 Studio London Nail Polish (No Shade Number Sorry!)
This is a lovely mauve purple shade with specs of glitter. I love this on it’s own or else pairing it with a pastel pink but I would do that not during these cold months!
#2 Studio London Nail Polish ( No Shade Number Sorry!)
This is a cute glittery light brown with a bit of pink … I don’t know how to describe it but it is perfect for the Christmas time in my opinion.
#1 Rimmel London Super Gel Nail Polish in Shade 45 Flamenco Beach
I of course had to include a red here because it is Christmas time and I guess it is a must plus this is a Blogmas Post so why the heck not! But I love this red shade – perfect for the holidays!
And those were my favourite nail polishes. Don’t forget to leave your favourites in the comments down below!
How are you all doing? It’s another Friday, so time for a new Blog post! Next week I should be posting 2 blog posts I hope!! So Stay Tuned!!
Today’s blog post is all about some NEW products from Catrice Cosmetics from their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection. Unfortunately, I missed the launch party of these products but Pharma MT were so kind enough to keep me a goodie bag – so I would like to thank them and Catrice Malta!!
If you would like to stay up to date with Catrice cosmetics then like the Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/CATRICE.Malta/ and also if you live in Malta, you can find a number of Catrice stands at your local pharmacy. The one I have used the most was the one at the HealthShop at the University of Malta, if you are wondering.
Let us move on to the products!!
You can watch my video right here of testing out the products –
Ever since I filmed this video I have used them some more. So here are more of my thoughts on the products.
Brown Collection Nail Polish –
The Catrice Nail Polishes have one of the best formulas of nail polish. I only need to apply one layer and the colour would be perfect. I love these two that I got in Shade 2 –Sophisticated Vogue and Shade 4 – Unmistakable Style.
I used them together and I think they are two perfect shades for Autumn. They also lasted a week before chipping away.
Re-touch Brightening Concealer –
This is a Colour correcting concealer in lanvender. It balances yellow skin patches and brightens dull skin. I use it for under my eyes and it gives me a more of a brightened look.
Do not apply too much as the more you apply the more it creases. But it settles nicely once you apply some powder. This also states that it should give you a moisturising effect that lasts for 18 hours however I am a bit skeptical about this.
Re-touch Anti-Dark Circle Concealer –
Again this states that is an 18hr moisturising product and again I do not quite agree with this. This anti-dark circle concealer comes in a yellow shade and it neutralises your dark panda looking eyes.
Again it works well and remember that you do not need to apply too much. What I can add is the packaging of both these concealers is the one were you twist the pen so the product comes out. I generally don’t like using products with this packaging, I prefer the ones that come with a sponge applicator.
Brow Palette Matt & Glow – Powder & Wax – Shade 10 – Now flASH Lights –
I love this brow products. Both the wax and powder worked great together. What I like doing is applying the wax first and then go over the empty pieces with the powder – and I found that the powder really filled in my brows well.
But what I like most about this product is that they have a glow shade with speckles of glitter to make your brows glow!! And the glitters really do transfer on your brows! Love!!
Glam & Doll Super black Eyeliner –
I always have mixed feelings about eyeliner pens but this one I have been reaching every time I need to apply eyeliner. I find that the pen makes for an easy application and the tip of it helps create a good lined look.
It is also very pigmented and it dries down so quickly!! And this is also waterproof.
Glam & Doll False lashes Mascara –
I love using this mascara to separate my lashes and lengthen them. But then I like going over my lashes with a volumising mascara to give my lashes more of a pop feeling!
Again this is waterproof and it doesn’t clump my lashes. The wand is perfect for separating them!
Professional Makeup techniques Face Palette –
I LOVE this face palette. If you are just starting to build up your makeup collection I really recommend you getting this palette!! You have a contour shade, a bronzer shade, 2 blushes – one matt and one shimmery, you also get one cream highlight and one powder and then you get a matt cream and matt powder.
All of these products work out great. I especially love the highlights, and if you use them together they give you such a gorgeous glow!! I highly recommend this!!
Volumising Lip Balm – Shade 10 Beauty-full lips
I love the packaging of this product. it is so pink and cute. It also comes in a mint scent and it just moisturises my lips nicely.
Metal Matt Liquid Lip Powder – Shade 30 Jenny From the Bronze
Pair this product up with a matte liquid lipstick and apply it in the centre and you are good to go! I love this so much and you can use it on its own or else as I said on top of a matte lipstick. It really plumps your lips and gives you an additional glow!
Ultimate Matt Lipstick Shade 40 Dramatic Lilatic!
This is such a gorgeous shade for the autumn/winter!! I love pairing this with the metal matt liquid lip powder, I think the two go great together!! It is a lovely matt shade on its own too and it lasts long.
Matt Lip Artist – 6hr shade 40 HibisKiss Proof
I love this colour, would not technically call it an autumn/winter shade but I still like it! You can pair this up with a natural look and wear this and your makeup would pop!!
