Bronzed babe

So is it just me or it is finding the right bronzer for your skin tone almost as hard as finding the right foundation?
But never fear I’m here to show you my two favourite bronzers . One expensive and one superduper cheap!
And I gotta tell you I’m kinda loving the cheaper one better!

  1. CATRICE sun glow matt bronzing powder (medium skin)
    So this is my favourite out of the two.
    I think this is really good for cheap bronzer.
    There no real orange undertones in it. Its lovely and soft.
    Lasts a long time, good colour payoff! Most importantly when it only costs €5 (bonus points) I think there’s no reason why you can’t give this a go! 8/10

The next one is the more expensive out of the two. Its the BENEFIT ‘hoola’ bronzer.
This is definitely for someone who is willing to invest a lot of money into finding the right bronzer.
Its basic BENEFIT goodness!
Its a good colour, no orange undertone ( can i get an amen!)
It lasts quite long
Basically it’s just great, the only downside is the price €34!
Its pretty steep so it looses points for that 7/10

viva glam slam

So for a long time i have looked for the “ULTIMATE” nude lip colour for me. I had tried and tested every nude from drugstore brands but none worked with my skin tone.

So after hearing great reviews for “viva glam v ” i decided to try it.

IMG_4321-0.JPG

I was less then impressed. My lips are naturally quite red but the sales assistant assured me that this would work. Lets just say it didn’t. My lip colour shined through even with 3-4 layers on!

PACKAGING: its nothing special,same bascic mac container with a red strip.6/10

IMG_4324-0.JPG

SMELL: ( I always check cause im weird like that) its really nice quite sweet.
8/10

COVERAGE: really not what i was expecting from mac this dissapointed me a lot. Viva Glam V did not live up to its reputation in my opinion.4/10

IMG_4323.JPG

CONSISTENCY: I liked it its very creamy and light so i really liked this part of it .8/10

Overall this lipstick for me didn’t live up to its reputation so i give mac a very disappointing 5/10 for this lipstick.
