Review: E.l.f. High Definition Powder

Review: E.l.f. High Definition Powder

The E.l.f. High Definition Powder (£7.50 for 8 g) is a loose powder which is available in three shades; Sheer (the one that I own), Soft Luminance, and Corrective Yellow. They claim that this powder is a makeup artist and costumer favourite.

On their website they state that the powder
is a versatile loose powder that creates a flawless, “soft focus” effect to the skin
masks fine lines and imperfections for a glowing, radiant complexion
is soft and invisible
is ideal for everyday wear, either alone or over foundation

I don’t use powder all over my face I only use it to set my under eyes, smilelines, and sometimes my chin. I only own the sheer one so that is the only one that I can actually review. I think the corrective yellow might be something like the sheer one – just yellow. But I don’t think the soft luminance is like the others as it is luminizing and therefore contains something that makes it luminizing. At first sight, the powder seems very finely milled but when you start to use it you will see on both your face and your brush that there are some larger sized particles of powder in there (they are also visible in the last picture of this review) which really annoys me as they are very visible on the face and you therefore need to remove them which can be a bit of a struggle as I feel you don’t want to work with this powder after you have applied it because it will move your concealer and foundation around. It looks pretty good when you first apply the powder to your skin but though the day I will get creases in my smile lines and under my eyes. I feel the powder does a really good job with keeping foundation and/or concealer in place on imperfections like blemishes. But again, if you get those larger particles of powder on your face and you have to remove them, then your base will move around which will cause the imperfections to peak through yet again. I do think it is soft and invisible as long as you don’t get those larger particles on your face and apply a little amount at the time.

A good tip on how to make sure you don’t get the larger particles on your face is to first check if you got any of them on your brush. If there are, then gently tap the brissels of the brush against the grid in the container. Then gently apply it to the desired areas or how you usually apply the powder.

I really don’t know how I feel about this powder. I think it is that kind of a love/hate relationship. Some days I love it, some days I don’t. I really like how it looked in the beginning when I first started using it, but lately I feel like it disappoints me every time I use it. I think I will award this powder 2 hearts out of 5 possible.

The reason I only give this product two hearts is because I don’t feel like it keeps my makeup in place and it will move my base if I work too much with it. Plus I hate the larger particles! I would not repurchase this product. If I should try another loose powder from E.l.f., then I might want to try the High Definition Undereye Setting Powder.  Have you tried the High Definition Powder from E.l.f.?

Review: BH Cosmetics x Ashley Tisdale Illuminating Shimmer Powder

Review: BH Cosmetics x Ashley Tisdale Illuminating Shimmer Powder

The BH Cosmetics x Ashley Tisdale Illuminating Shimmer Powder (£6 for 9.8 g) is the illuminators Ashley Tisdale created in her collaboration with BH Cosmetics. They are available in two shades; Shimmering Sand (a more cooled tone shade) and Beach Bum (a more warm tone one).

On their website they state that the illuminators
 enhances face and body with a beautiful sheen
is a silky, buildable baked powder
gives an intense yet natural-looking radiance
enhances all skin tones
are highly pigmented

I was a bit sceptical about the illuminators to begin with as they are only available in two shades and I honestly didn’t think any of the shades would match me. I tried the lightest one (Shimmering Sand) and got pleasantly surprised as it actually was light enough for my fair skintone! The illuminators are illuminators and not highlighters! I think it is important to know the difference especially if you are looking for a blinding highlighter and then buy these because what you get here is a very subtle glow. An illuminating glow. I really like the look of the illuminator – it is very subtle and gives you that “glow from within” look which I some days really love! If you want a illuminator for your no-makeup days, then I would definitely recommend looking into these! They are not glittery at all and look very natural! I think the two shades will complement a lot of skintones. Shimmering Sand might mostly be for the fair to light-medium skintones while Beach Bum is more for the medium to dark skintones.

I can’t get over how surprised I got about this product and how I actually fell in love with it when I finally decided to give it a chance! The product lives up to all the statements – maybe not the one about it being intense as I think it is very subtle! I think the compact itself is very flimsy but that is what to expect for the price. I really enjoy this product and will award it 5 out of 5 possible hearts!

I think it is a beautiful illuminator and I actually don’t think they need more shades as I think they hit a lot of skintones with these two shades. Have you tried the BH Cosmetics x Ashley Tisdale Illuminating Shimmer Powder? If you have, then let me know your opinion in the comments!

Items for your fall wardrobe!

Items for your fall wardrobe!


//1 Double Breasted Coat (Boohoo) – //2 Red Ankle Boots (Public Desire)
//3 Nude Turtleneck (Boohoo) – //4 Faux Fur Coat (Boohoo)
//5 Black Ankle Boots (NA-KD) – //6 Knitted Jumper Dress (Boohoo)
//7 Black Thigh High Boots (Public Desire)

In Denmark the fall came hard this year! I feel like it have been raining every day since we hit the first of September. I need to update my wardrobe for fall which I will do with clothing items from Boohoo and boots from shops like NA-KD.

I have been on the lookout for a nice coat the last two years now but haven’t found any that really was what I am dreaming about. A coat I find really stylish is the brown double breasted coat from Boohoo. I really like the collar of it but would have loved if it was more of a trench coat style with a belt to enhance your figure as that is more what I am looking after.

For fall I love to wear a lot of knitwear, sweaters, and turtlenecks. One I think I need to add to my fall wardrobe is this nude turtleneck from boohoo. I really love turtlenecks and they are so easy to style and wear. A turtleneck like this you could wear with whatever shade of jeans – cowboy, black, khaki, even leather pants could look so cool with this one! Maybe I need a pair of leather pants as well? I think I just inspired myself hahahah 😉

Another thing I have been wanting for fall for ages now is a faux fur coat. I found this one from the collage from Boohoo and totally fell in love! I think a faux fur coat like this one would look stunning and super stylish with a pair of ankle boots, both neutrals and some more colourful ones. One of my favourite black ankle boots I own are these from NA-KD which I also included in the collage. They look so stylish and are so comfortable to wear! A pair of more colourful ankle boots I have been having my eyes on for a long period of time is these red ones from Public Desire. They are available in other colours as well but I just really have fallen for the red shade and thought they would be a fun pop of colour.

A big hit last fall was thigh high boots and a cute dress like this knitted one from Boohoo. I think this is going to be a big trend again this year and as I finally got around buying a pair of thigh high boots, I will definitely get a lot wear out of my shorter dresses for this fall and winter. I think the knitted dress from the collage above would look stunning with a pair of thigh high boots and maybe a faux leather belt to complete the look!

What are your must-have fall item and what trend are you looking the most forward for? Tell me all about it in the comments! Also let me know whats your favourite item from the collage above!

Review: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

Review: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

The Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation (£9 for 30 mL) is a full-coverage foundation which states it will give you better skin in just three weeks. This is interesting because as we all know, makeup can clog your pores and give you a horrible skin if you are not removing your makeup properly (read about my morning skincare routine and night time skincare routine here to know how I clean my skin.)

On their website they state that the foundation
 reduces the appearance of dull, blotchy and uneven skin, leaving you with flawless, hydrated, even and glowing skin
got a flawless all-day coverage
got a formula that helps skin look more radiant, fresher and even, with all-day wear
 blend seamlessly onto the skin for buildable coverage
 is suitable for sensitive skin

A foundation that makes your skin look better? Sign me up for that! I fell in love with all the statements I read about the foundation when I first wanted to buy it. So I bought it to test out if it really made my skin look better. I have been wearing it for the past month for my makeup days – I do have days where I don’t want to wear makeup and want to let my skin breathe. I already think I got pretty good skin as I don’t have any major breakouts. I also don’t think have dull or uneven skin but I do have kind of blotchy skin as my cheeks and my nose often are a bit red. I honestly think my skin looked better – with this I mean less red – over the time when I tested out the foundation. I think the foundation blend so easily into the skin and really looks good when it is on. You can build up the formula to a medium-full coverage. It got an amazing wear time! I have been a lot in the rain with this foundation and it really didn’t move at all! I was so impressed! Like my face was so wet and it still looked good!

A thing that confused me was that this comes in different packaging. On the maybelline.com website it looks square with a light blue cap, while it on the maybelline.co.uk website looks like the one I have which is round and got a darker blue cap. I don’t know why brands make different packaging… But I think there is two kinds. The one I have only comes in 8 shades… 8 SHADES?! I got the lightest shade 10 Ivory but it is nowhere near ivory! I can only use it know when I am tan which is such a bummer as I really like the foundation. On the maybelline.com website it is available in 16 shades where the lightest is 10 Porcelain. Why they don’t have the same shades all over the world and the same packaging is a mystery for me. I also think that their shade line sucks. The lightest is not light enough and it does not look like they got any dark shades at all.

Even though I really like this foundation I will only award it 4 out of 5 possible hearts.

I will give the foundation the 4 hearts because I really like the foundation and actually felt like it made my skin look better and less red. I will not give it the last heart as I don’t understand why there’s only 8 shades available in europe. It’s 2017, step it up Maybelline!

Review: Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette

Review: Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette

The Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette (£8 for 15 g) contains three highlighters; a yellow golden shade, a frosty pink shade, and a light purple shade – at least on my fair skintone.

On their website they state that the highlighters
… Well they don’t really state anything other than they’re vivid.

So are they vivid? I will say that you get a pretty blinding highlight for your buck. You can customise them to your desired intensity – if you like a more subtle highlight then only dip your brush in once or twice. If you – like me – like to glow like the Gods then you can build up the glow as you wish by adding more product. I think this palette will work the best for fair to medium complexions as I think they might get too light for deeper complexions. I really enjoy all the shades on my fair complexion. The pinky and lilac shade might look like they will be too much or too funky but they don’t look that pinky or purple on the face and I think they are both very wearable. They wear an incredible amount of time on the face! I really couldn’t believe they lasted all day on my cheekbones even after being in the rain. Their intensity might fade a bit but they still look good if you don’t retouch them! I really enjoy all of the shades but my favourite is definitely the pinky one!

All in all, I really think these highlighters are incredible and I really want to try out some more from the brand! I don’t have any negative things to say about the highlighters and I would definitely repurchase the palette! I will award this Highlighter Palette from Makeup Revolution 5 out of 5 hearts!

Whats better than a good, affordable product? Maybe free food? Hahahahah. If you are on a budget – or maybe just want some cool highlighters – then I would definitely recommend this one!

How to look bomb on a budget with tunic tups online!

How to look bomb on a budget with tunic tups online!

//1 Black Tea Length Dress (dresslily) – //2 Black Leather Crop Top (New Look)
//3 Gold Earrings (TopShop) – //4 Lace Blouse (Boohoo) – //5 Fur Vest (New Look)
//6 Grey Tunic Top (dresslily) – //7 Silver Earrings (TopShop) – //8 Snake Booties (Ego)

It really isn’t that hard looking bomb AF on a budget! Here I show you 8 items, like tunic tops online and tea length dresses online, which could pump up your wardrobe and upgrade your outfits so know one would ever guess you were on a budget!

A black dress is a stable item in every woman’s wardrobe. If you are looking for a perfect black dress that would match every possible event (from datenight, meetings, lunch with your in laws, or even a walk in the park) then a black tea length dress is the way to go!

For the more “wild” outfits I love the black leather crop top which would look sooooo stunning paired with a leather skirt! To turn up the outfit even more I would pair it with some black heels and definitely a diamond choker to get allllll the attention! Accessories and jewellery are perfect for taking an outfit up a notch. Earrings are always a big hit here and I especially love the gold ones and the silver ones which I have shown in the collage above.

If you don’t feel like wearing any eye-catching jewellery then I would go for a stunning lace blouse. The one in the collage is an all lace blouse so it is see-trough! If you are not into all that see-trough stuff – like me – then I would wear a tight top underneath which will be matching whatever colour you are wearing on you bottoms or black to match the lace blouse. I think everthing would look perfect with the lace blouse – everything from jeans to skirts!

If you are heading towards fall and winter like I am and have no clue about what kind of warm jacket you should get this year. Then I would suggest looking into a fur vest (the one shown is faux fur). You can throw this over so many items and it will only take your outfit to the next level! If you don’t think you can keep warm in a fur vest then I would suggest pairing it with a leather jacket!

A tunic top is such a cute piece of clothing. I really enjoy the grey tunic top I have showed you above and would pair it with a pair of black slim jeans and shoes fitting the weather. You can chose to pair it with some cute heels or even the grey snake booties from the collage! I have totally fallen in love with the snake booties and really need them in my wardrobe for the upcoming fall and winter!

If you are on a budget, then how are you managing to look bomb AF? Tell me in the comments and also let me know which item in the collage is your favourite! Mine is a 100% the snake booties!

Review: Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Review: Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (£8.99 for 9.5 mL) is one of the most popular mascaras from the brand Maybelline. The Lash Sensational Mascara is available in both black and brown and is also available in two other forms; Waterproof and Luscious.

On their website they state that the mascara
– comes with an exclusive fanning brush with ten layers of bristles reveals layers of lashes for a sensational full-fan effect
– is great for layering because of the liquid formula

I will start out by saying that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the brush when I started using the mascara. But as time went by I slowly became more use to it and learned how to use it the best. The brush contains a lot of different sized bristles which I think is great for coating all lashes as they also state. The mascara does really give my lashes the full-fan effect and they keep looking the same for hours!

Before I really started using the mascara on its own I have always been applying it after I have used my Lancôme Definicils Mascara which I think is a great combo! A thing I noticed is that my skin under my eyebrows gets black during the day which is because my lashes touch my skin there when I look straight ahead. Many mascaras does this to me – even some high end ones – so I don’t really bother about it as I am used to it and have made it a routine to remove it. I think the mascara takes an effort to remove. It does not come straight of the lashes and it takes a bit longer time to remove than other mascaras.

I really enjoy this mascara and I love how it makes my lashes look and keeps looking beautiful through the entire day! I will award the mascara 5 out of 5 hearts!

I think this mascara have become one of my favourite mascaras after I have managed to control the wand! I also think it is amazing that they offer it in both waterproof and luscious (which should have another wand and contain contains a lot of oils for a softer, denser lash multiplying effect). Have you tried the Lash Sensational Mascara from Maybelline? If you have, then let me know your opinion in the comments!

Review: Rosegal.com Knitted Dress and Rhinestone Choker

Review: Rosegal.com Knitted Dress and Rhinestone Choker

I have received two items from rosegal.com which is a long sweater dress in black grey and a silver emboss floral rhinestone choker. I have never ordered anything from the shop before so I didn’t know what to expect. I have been looking on the site before though and have always thought it reminded me a bit of eBay, not that there are different sellers but because the images of the items isn’t staged the same way like other webshops would do.

The item of the two I was looking the most forward to was the rhinestone choker! It looks exactly like the photos on the website which really pleases me! I don’t think you should order this choker if you got a larger neck as I closed mine in the outer part of of the chain where I with other chokers normally close them in the inner part. But it looks so good on – I love it so much! When I was putting it on for the second time one of the big stones which makes the flowers fell off. Luckily I was at home and found it again and could glue it right back on. If you want to make sure that none of the stones fall off when you are out and about then I would recommend that you try to wiggle them a bit to see if any are loose and then take them off and glue them on with superglue.

Now on to the knitted dress! My first thought when I got it out of the packaging was that it smelled wired. I don’t know how I should describe the smell but it smelled kind of old. Another thing I noticed straight away was that the dress looks a bit darker in real life than on the pictures on their website. I don’t know if that has anything to do with the lightning at the studio or what, but it is a bit more black in real life. I immediately tried it on and noticed it didn’t sit as tight to my body as I imagined it would from looking at the pictures on their webshop. I still think the dress looks cute and I will definitely get wear out of it after I have washed it. I am not the biggest fan of loose fitted dresses – I like my figure 😉 – so I think I would style it with a wide waist belt like this one from boohoo (I will definitely upload an outfit post as soon as I can style the dress as I desire!). The last thing I have to say about the dress is that it is itchy and if there is one thing I simply can’t stand… It is itchy clothing. I have been reading some tips and tricks on how to make it stop being itchy and will definitely keep you posted if I find a method that works!

I think you are able to find some really cute pieces on rosegal.com if you are on a budget. I would definitely recommend checking the size measurements and maybe reconsider if you will fit a one-size because even though my measurements would fit the one-sized jumper dress, it was still too big. Have you tried anything from rosegal.com? If you have, then let me know your opinion in the comments!
