Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Review, Swatches, and Comparisons

The Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Kit ($42 US/$54 CAD) for Holiday 2015 is one of the season's gifting must haves. If you missed out on last year's Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box o' Blushes then you will want to get your hands on this set before it sells out. I'm not sure if they are more prepared for the demand this year, since last year's kit sold out so quickly, but better safe than sorry. The packaging is so fun this year. Bright green and pink with a polka dot party theme. The palette is a very sturdy tin and

Complexion Perfection with the New Burberry Cashmere Foundation and Contouring & Highlighting Pens

The new Burberry Cashmere Fluid Foundation ($54 US/$60 CAD) is very aptly named. This liquid foundation offers medium to full coverage with a cashmere soft matte effect. It's a beautiful satin matte finish with a natural radiance. The formula is touted as being weather proof. Performing through, and protecting from, rain, humidity and pollution. I haven't had the opportunity to test out these claims as the humidity here I think is finally abolished for fall. I do find this foundation lasts the day for me with minimal fading.

Oh my goodness I am in TROUBLE. I have developed an all consuming obsession with Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics. I have been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury for years.
