My Too Face Melted Lipstick Collection

17:00 0
Too Faced is one of my favourite brands because of their fun packaging, quality products and slightly quirky names and ideals (chocolate scented makeup anyone?). The Melted Lipsticks are a recent addition to my collection but I really do love the look they give and range of colors they come in. 

The price above is for the full size 12ml version but the ones reviewed here are minis.

At first, I wasn't a huge fan of the funny sponge applicator or squeezy tube. After a few uses, I found that the spongy applicator helped give a really soft, slightly blurred finish to the lipstick. The squeezy tube means you can also use just the right amount, whether you want a hint of colour or a bold lip.  Pigmentation is good and they are really smooth and easy to apply. They dry to a semi-matte, suede type finish and feel really comfortable to wear.
The only downside I've found is the "long-wear" claim. I think that because these don't dry to a super matte finish, they don't last as long as some other liquid lipsticks. They will definitely stay put longer than an average lipstick but they are far from an all-day deal. Eating and drinking pretty much gets rid of them completely. I personally don't mind all that much because of how pretty they are and how comfortable and pretty they are to wear. I'll usually wear them on days that I know I'll have time to reapply.

BECCA Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

17:00 0
Champagne Pop has long been one of my favourite highlighters so when I saw that Becca was coming out with an entire Jaclyn Hill Face Palette, I pretty much peed my pants with excitement. When the pictures started popping up all over Instagram, my heart palpitations started. Then I found out that it was being release the week before payday, I felt like crying! Thankfully, the wonderfully kind and generous Mel from Loads of Lifestyle, added an extra palette to her order for me. Here's what I think of my new baby.

One palette, two mineral blushes, one luminous blush, two highlighters and one happy beauty blogger! This palette is everything I dreamed of and more. The packaging is heavy and solid, making it look and feel very luxe. The gold detailing is super glam and makes me feel just a little bit fancy when I take it out. 
The actual shades are Amaretto and Pamplemousse (the mineral blushes), Rosé Spritz (the luminous blush) and Champagne and Prosecco Pop (the highlighters). Out of the blushes, Amaretto is my favourite but that's like saying my favourite chocolate is Kit Kat cos I love all chocolate. Pigmentation is on point and a little goes a really long way. The formula and colour of Champagne Pop is a little different to the original Champagne Pop that you can buy alone but it's equally as beautiful and wears just as well. 
The only downside for me is that the shade names aren't printed on the palette, one of my pet hates! They are on the underside on a sticker but I much prefer having them right there. It's a pretty minor thing and doesn't really affect the actual quality and use of the palette at all.
