Loreal True Match Blush in True Rose

Hey Dolls!

Meet my latest blush obsession: Loreal True Match blush in True Rose.

You can also see my swatches and review of the Loreal True Match blush in Pink Marshmallow HERE!

The packaging is a tiny two storeyed comoact plastic case which isnt as sturdy as the lower portion of my blush has already broken away! It comes with a tiny flat brush which can come in handy sometimes but not the best blush brush.

True Rose is a lovely pink-peachy color! Its neither too pink nor too peachy, perfectly somewhere in between. It has a matte finish with shimmer particles in it which are hardly noticeable on the cheeks but manage to give out a bit of a glowy sheen. It is an absolutely natural looking shade and nothing too over the top which is why I have been obsessing over this a lot lately. This blush goes with my everyday natural no makeup looks and can also be layered on for smokey eyed looks. Just love it!
This one blends beautifully and stays put on my cheeks for about 3-4 hours and so a touch up later in the day is needed.

MAC Lipstick | Candy Yum Yum

Hey Dolls!

Do you know that feeling when all the new lipsticks you're eyeing on looks more or less similar to the ones you already own? I go through this feeling a lot lately! However while casually browsing at the MAC counter I happened to see this lipstick in the shade Candy Yum Yum and my first thought was "Too Bold for me". But since I love swatching products randomly at makeup counters I swatched it on and boy it was something new! Something that, for once, didnt look like any lipstick shade I already owned ^_^

Candy Yum Yum is a shade from their permanent line. It is an extremely vibrant neonish pink color with blue-purple undertones. It IS a very bold shade but you can totally tone it down by applying very little of it or by blotting it away. But I personally prefer wearing it just the way it is- boldly :)
It comes in a matte finish but the formula is actually really creamy and kind on the lips unlike most of other matte Mac lipsticks. However the finish looks quite matte and not glossy. 
Candy Yum Yum stays put for more than 3-4 hours on me and it leaves behind a strong stain on my lips which is also hard to get off with my makeup remover! Thats something unique about this lipstick compared to other Mac lippies. The only con factor would be that despite its cool blueish undertones, it tends to make my teeth look quite yellow! I wonder why? But other than that this is definitely one of my top 5 Mac lipsticks so far ^_^

Real Techniques Starter Set Review! Eye Collection

Hey Dolls!

Here's a complete detailed brush by brush review of the Real Techniques Starter Kit Eye brush collection. The set comes with 5 different eye brushes along with a travel friendly signature RT pouch. These brushes come with a purple color coding and are made of ultra-plush taklon bristles held together by an aluminium casing.

1. Deluxe Crease Brush:

This brush in unusually huge and not really fluffy for a crease brush but since I have a pretty wide eyelid it works just fine on my crease. It has a very dense domed rounded top and is extremely soft which makes it a great brush for blending out harsh edges. However it may be too big for those with smaller eyes. This brush also works like a pro at blending under eye concealers as well as setting it with powder. One of the best brushes in the set I must say.

2. Base Shadow Brush:

This is a slightly flat brush with a tapered top and is also dense and longer than normal eyeshadow brushes. It does a good job in applying eyeshadow primers but I normally prefer using my fingers for the same. This brush can be used for applying all over lid colors. I really like this brush for patting on eyeshadows or pigments onto my lids whenever I want to build up the intensity. It picks up product very nicely.

3. Brow Brush:

This is the biggest angled brow brush I've come across and is a bit on the thicker side as well. I've never been a fan of tiny thin angled brushes for shaping up my brows and so this came off as a big surprise. I actually use this brush every single day to shape and fill in my brows. Ever since I got hold of this I have only been using powder products for my brows. This brush, owing to its bigger size makes my eyebrow routine super quick and easy. Plus I get straight lines under my eyebrows with this everytime! Couldnt ask more from a brow brush :) This can also be used for giving you that edgy cat eyeliner look.

4. Accent Brush:

You wont believe what all this lil guy here can do! A very very useful brush indeed. I use it to highlight my inner corners, right under my brows, tightline my upper and lower waterline as well as to smudge out the eyeliner for a smoked out effect, and to conceal any break outs or blemishes. This is a great multi-tasking brush indeed.

5. Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush:

This brush is long and slightly thick compared to regular liner brushes. It does a fine job in creating thick liner looks as I find it very difficult to make even lines with this while creating thin close-to-the-lashes liner look. I also find it almost impossible to make a pointy cat eye flick with this brush which could be because of its rounded head and also the fact that its not quite stiff as I would have preferred my eyeliner brushes to be. This is not a brush that would give you crisp/sharp lines which is why this is my least used out of all the brushes from the set.

All in all this set retails for $18 which is super affordable. It has a few amazing brushes but I wouldnt say this a must have set especially for beginners as I feel most of the brushes in this set is not an absolute essential to own in one's stash and can be done without. Nevertheless, if you are a makeup brush hoarder then this set here might be an affordable yet good quality set to own :)
