Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Complex, Unapologetic, Audacious and Shameless

Hello lovelies, the spring is finally here! I think this is my favourite part of the whole year where I just feel so energised - to me, this is when I make my *new year* resolutions and try to make them happen :) *fingers crossed*
I know these are all over the internet at the moment and they look so good that I decided I wanna try one myself as well. Or four :)

Paul & Joe Face Powder S in 001 Secret Garden: Review

Paul & Joe Face Powder S in 001 Secret Garden
Paul & Joe Face Powder S in 001 Secret Garden is a translucent powder with a silky matte finish. There is four different shades of balls: white, blue, yellow and pink. The white and blue ones are just just plain translucent but pink and yellow have got a very fine pieces of shimmer in them. LOVE. The balls are quite hard which is just perfect for applying ideal amount of powder, which is very smooth and applies very easily. And I like the fact that there is not too much shimmer in it, just silky smooth translucent powder that make your face look flawless in seconds. It is probably best suited for fair complexions due to the balls being very pale.

And... the packaging just looks and feel gorgeous! The puff is incredibly soft and all I wanna do it rub it against my face it feels so nice ha! I just love the whole design and I would probably buy it just for the pretty packaging! Oh!... And the smell is sooo addictive - I know some of you ladies do not like it but for me - it is just heaven. Seriously. (...)

Paul & Joe in Poppy is a very sheer shade of muted coral. Or a sheer lipstick with a tiny hint of coral when applied. Poppy is paired with Mint Green Print case.

Paul & Joe in Pony looks like a very bright shade of pink in the bullet but it is basically just a clear balm / lipstick once applied. Pony is paired with Retro case.
Paul & Joe Lipstick CS in 086 Rosebud
Paul & Joe in Rosebud is sheer shade of blue red with tiny pieces of glitter in it. Very pretty shade when applied. It is the most opaque one out of all of them. My favourite out of the three. Rosebud is paired with Horse Print case.

Paul & Joe Colour Powder in 088 Dahlia (below) is a very lovely peachy shade of bright coral with tiny (I mean microscopic!) pieces of shimmer and yellow-ish floral pattern imprinted on top, which disappears completely after the first use. Prettiness in a pan! Perfect for upcoming spring.

 Paul & Joe Colour Powder in 089 Azalea is a bright shade of pink with blue imprints. Pure perfection. This shade is probably most dupable.

 Paul & Joe Colour Powder in 090 Amaryllis is a warm shade of red with cream imprints. Again, gorgeous shade and very wearable.

Mac Apres Chic Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose (2012 edition)


 Mac Apres Chic Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose
Mac Apres Chic Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose
I know you probably cannot buy it anywhere in the UK at the present time (maybe some single mac counters) and I know it is sold out online – it has been so long since I actually got it but there was so many reviews popping up on the net at the time I thought I would just skip it. My mistake. :P

Mac Apres Chic Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose

Stereo Rose is a very sought-after coral blusher with golden shimmer and a hint of pink. It has frosty finish.  This is my first ever Stereo Rose and I must admit I understand why it is so popular. It is just such a wearable shade. I have been wearing it every day since I got it! The ratio of colour to shimmer in Stereo Rose is just right. It gives you a nice hint of colour while highlighting your cheeks at the same time. It is perfect for daytime looks, night-time looks (you can build it up), looks for special occasions… This product is so versatile it is almost perfect.
