The Perfect Glow

Hello Beautiful People!

Yes, I do love makeup!  Yes, I do enjoy making people look and feel beautiful. I am a MAC Cosmetics Pro Member, this is an absolutely high end cosmetics brand; however,  recently I have been browsing around and purchasing some drugstore cosmetics for my makeup bag.

I will be doing a few beauty posts on my recent drugstore hauls, starting with two CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighters named sunkissed  04 and sundown 05.

The CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighters have a smooth, silky doughy consistency. The two highlighters  I’ve purchased are sunkissed  04 and sundown 05; they are both gorgeous on dark skinned tones.  The sunkissed 04 highlighter is a peachie/bronze colour, which gives an attractive warm glow to the face; sundown 05, is  darker, it is a metallic/rose colour, which gives your face an amazing shimmer.  I used my MAC 191 foundation brush to apply the highlighters after my foundation was set, I placed the products on my cheek bones, my nose bridge, my forehead and my chin.

I  am pleased with the results and would likely use these highlighters again! I would definitely recommend these highlighters, it will give you a “beat face” and an illuminating fresh glow.

Naked Palette 3 – Product Review

Urban Decay – NAKED PALETTE 3

Naked Palette 3!

Naked Palette 3!


So, I’ve gone naked again! Another Urban Decay Naked Palette has been added to my makeup kit. I’ve got Naked 1 & 2 in my kit already and they are the bronze and taupe hued respectively.

I love the packaging of the rose and gold colour tin, very tastefully done.  As with the Naked 1 & 2 palettes, #3 has twelve shades, this palette has hues of mauve, pink, and browns.  The palette comes with a dual ended synthetic brush –  a flat shader brush and a blending brush. This dual brush is usable with great results, I have one from a previous Naked palette that I use all the time.

Are you ready? Let’s start with the first colour on top.

#1- Strange:   is a matte-satin pink highlight shade, the texture is powdery and very soft.

#2 – Dust:  is an intense shimmery light pink shade.  Dust has a significant amount of fallout, however, you can damp your shader brush before application to minimize the fallout. 

#3  – Burnout:  is satin in texture and is a pink/peach colour.

#4 – Limit:  is a matte tan/mauve colour.  I use this as a transition colour in the crease of my eyes (when doing a smokey eye), and the pigmentation is good.

#5 – Buzz:  is a satin mauve/copper colour, with lots of silver micro-glitter.  The texture is very soft and smooth.

#6 – Trick:  is a brilliant coppery/pinky shade, with  metallic silver glitter.  This is an excellent warm colour with a soft and smooth texture.

#7 – Nooner:   is another matte colour in brown with a hint of pink.  This colour is great for the crease and also for blending out harsh lines.

#8 – Liar:  I love this metallic taupe satin shade with its pink overtone. 

#9 – Factory:  this is another colour I love working with. It is deep brown, with a reddish  tone, that is great in the eye crease.  The pigmentation is rich and you’ll love the results!

#10 – Mugshot:  is a deep taupe with a shimmery metallic finish. 

#11 – Darkside:  is a gorgeous dark purple, deep taupe, with a muddy grey overtone. The pigmentation is rich, the finish is pearl and the texture is soft.

#12 – Blackheart:  is a very dark copper matte brown.

Over all impression:

The palette has a high-quality range of colours that blends very well. The pigmentation is great; however, I am more biased toward the last six colours in the palette.  I absolutely love Blackheart, it is my favourite because it blends well with most colours in the palette.  Dust is my least favourite, because of the fallout I experience while working.

I have been using the Naked Palettes for bridal makeup application, pageants and everyday makeup.  I love the clean, crisp, fresh, natural results the colours in the palette gives, and this is the true essence of what makeup is about. Well there you have it beautiful people! Have a great 2014 and beyond!
