This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing our Favorite Highlighters! I could have made this post humungous but I opted to instead focus on the few highlighters I reach for probably 80% of the time. I certainly have more in my stash that I adore, but these are my true go to's. All of my favorite highlighters are powder formulas as these are the kinds of products I tend to prefer. I have some absolutely stunning liquid and cream highlighters in my collection, but powders are what I typically reach for as I just find them quicker and

So I never did get around to writing a review, but I did get swallowed up in the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop hype. I thought it looked absolutely beautiful, from what I was seeing online, but I thought "well, it's probably a bit too warm and dark for me so I don't need it". It isn't very often I find myself in a Sephora (the nearest on is 1.5 hours away) but about a month ago popped in one when I was in the city for a media event and right at the entrance was Champagne Pop on display. It was stunning! Of course I had to swatch it.
Today I am excited to share with you my Khaki Eyeshadow Collection. I was tempted to do bronze, and still will at a later date, but opted instead for one of my favourite fall colours; Khaki. Khaki is described as a dull brownish-yellow but it is much more beautiful than it's description. Shades range from khaki browns, to khaki greens, and even khaki greys. I love the shades because they are a great twist on a neutral, looks great with every eye colour, and you can create such beautiful and interesting smoky eye looks with them.
This week the Makeup Wars members are sharing our favourite illuminating products. This is probably one of my favourite cosmetics categories for two reasons. Firstly I have very dry, dull skin and I need a lot of assistance in the glow department. Secondly I am very picky when it comes to products in this category so finding the right product is always a struggle for me. I guess I kind of enjoy the challenge and the subsequent joy and satisfaction of finding a product that meets my expectations. Why am I so picky? Well when it
BECCA came out with their new Ultimate Eye Colour Quads ($40 US) quite some time ago but I had not gotten around to trying them out. I have Eclipsed to share with you today and I can tell you it was well worth the wait. The quads come in round rubberized compacts with metal embellishment just like their cheek and face compacts. I love this compact and sturdy packaging. There is no wasted space with teeny brushes or sponge tipped applicators. Unfortunately my palette arrived with one of the shades broken. I pressed most
First off I must apologize for how ridiculously pic heavy this post is. I love showing different lighting and angles to show how different something can look and I just couldn't seem to narrow this post down enough so I gave up. Pics away!Now that I've finished reviewing all of the items I ordered from the BECCA Balearic Love Collection I can post the second look I did using all the products. The links to all the individual reviews can be found in the product listing below. I was much happier with how it turned out by omitting the
I'm really pleased with the Line & Define Eye Pencil released with BECCA's Balearic Love collection. A gorgeous shimmering bronze on one end and a deep violet on the other. It's really one of the standout items from this collection.A combination liner and brightener in one, this convenient dual-ended pencil has a soft, smooth texture that glides on easily to line, define and brighten the eyes, while blending easily. The dark side of BECCA’s Line & Define Pencil lavishly lines while the light side helps brighten and awaken tired
I think the Romanticism Eye Tint from BECCA's Balearic Love collection may have been the item I was most excited to try. I've always wanted to try BECCA's Lip and Cheek Tints as well as the Eye Tints. When I read Mauve Bronze as the shade description it went immediately into my Zuneta cart! An ingenious eye crème with a unique formulation that glides on as a crème and sets to a powder. This long-lasting, water-resistant, crease-resistant tint is easy to apply, offering adjustable levels of sheer to high pigment colour.Now being
BECCA Balearic Love Palette The BECCA Balearic Love Palette from their Winter 2011 Balearic Love Collection contains 3 powder eye shadows designed to give you the perfect smoky eye. The description from the BECCA Australia site is as follows: Create richly shaded, sensuous eyes in jewelled tones of bronzed plum and violet with this limited edition eye palette. A combination of velvet matte and soft shimmer textures, shades Atlas, Romal and Marcella blend effortlessly for an on-trend festive look. When I read that
OK so I barely leave the house so I haven't much occasion to rock a smoky eye but the Winter 2011 Collection from BECCA that just became available on Zuneta grabbed my attention as soon as I saw the info in my inbox. I began reading the product descriptions and my heart started racing. I NEEDED this collection in my life. I have been trying very hard to refrain from purchasing new cosmetics until my employment situation is resolved but I could not resist Balearic Love. In my excitement I may have also caved on some additional
Last night I washed and set up to dry all 14 of my regular use makeup brushes in 13 MINUTES. Yup! I don't know about you, but to me that seemed pretty darn impressive! My new secret weapon was the BECCA Professional Makeup Brush Soap.Image Courtesy of BeccaCosmetics.comI must thank Modesty Brown for introducing this brush cleaner to me when she raved about it and included it in one of her giveaways. I decided to include it with my most recent Zuneta order and I'm so pleased I did.From the Becca Cosmetics website:Key
I'm loving purple and plum tones lately. This is a new discovery for me in the last couple years so it's always fun to add to my collection. I recently ordered Le Metier de Beaute Amethyst eyes shadow and Uma Paro Sheer Brilliance lipgloss and they are LOVE! I think maybe I should try their Fig eye shadow next ;-)Products used:Face:Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in BR10Le Metier de Beaute Visage de Soie Finishing powderMakeup For Ever HD Concealer in 305 set with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening PowderDior Diorskin Nude Healthy Glow
