This image shows the full swatch and review on colourpop ultra matte lip in kae

In case you didn't know, I've been going on a Colourpop Ultra Matte lips rampage. I've been testing out their shades to see if they were a hit or miss. And I gotta say, they're working out pretty dandy! To enable you further, you can read on my previous review on the shade 'Instigator'. This time, I've decided to whip out the newly collaborated limited edition with Karrueche.

Kae is a true chocolate, now who wouldn't resist?

The $8 waterproof mascara | Catrice Glam & Doll Volume

This image shows the full review on catrice glam and doll volume waterproof mascara

If given a choice to give up either a mascara or eyeliner, I would pick the latter. Having voluptuous lashes without falsies is a priority to me. Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara gets the job done but after discovering Catrice Glam & Doll Volume Waterproof mascara, I might need to sign the divorce papers with Too Faced....

What better way to kick-start my 2 weeks of absence by announcing my very first Youtube video? Yes, you read that right, I finally did it! *cues in confetti* After much procrastination and a little push from peers here and there, I finally caved in and created a Youtube channel.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip - Instigator | Is It Worth The Hype?

This image shows the full review and swatch of colour pop ultra matte lip in instigator

I came, I saw, I bought it all. Well, not really.

Liquid lipsticks are taking over the beauty world by storm. Their invasion has landed brands their own cult favourite "signature" shades. There's Lolita from Kat Von D, Patina from Stila, Cork from Dose of Colours, Victoria from Anastasia Beverly Hills, and the list goes on....

But when it came to affordable liquid lipsticks with a huge range of shades and various finishes, Colourpop is at the top of the list. They have mattes and the newly released satin finishes. And lord behold, I purchased 6 shades (2 were collabs from beauty gurus, 1 was given by a friend). If you know me, you know that I HAD to try the peachy-nudey shades so it was obvious Instigator became my first victim.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

This image shows a full review of the Becca backlight priming filter

When you're new to the Becca bandwagon, everything and I mean EVERYTHING looks perfect and you just want to buy every damn product. Just take my money already!! My first purchase was their shimmering skin perfector collaboration with Jaclyn Hill - Champagne Pop. Despite it being overhyped, I caved in, bought it and I absolutely LOVED it. 

While the first was filled with no regrets, I decided to try out Becca Backlight Priming Filter. Not gonna lie, the word filter intrigued me into buying and after reading reviews online, I had to try it myself!
