Haul And Product Review!!

Hello My Loves!

The items that I have brought are things that I been wanting for a while now but I was always was in doubt if its worth the hype or not as these items are famous on Instagram, YouTube and have many reviews on blogs. So without any further delay, lets see my review and opinions on the following Items:

Glow Kit By Anastasia Beverly Hills:

Well this item in particular has been out for a while now and personally I think it has changed the game of highlighters without a doubt, I feel like only after Anastasia Beverly Hills released her highlighters collection other companies have tried to mimic the same quality.

Product & Shades: This highlighter palette has four colours which are the following; ‘Bronzed’ (warm amber with a copper-bronze hint), ‘Tourmaline’ (warm taupe with a rose gold finish), ‘Moonstone’ (radiant quartz with a pearl finish) and ‘Summer’ (luminous sand with a white gold shimmer)- 10/10.

Texture & How to Apply: The four shades are velvety-textured powder highlighter which can be used by a makeup brush, beauty blender/sponge or just your fingers- 10/10.

Suitability: I personally think these shades are suitable for all skin colours but it will look beautiful on even more medium, tan and dark skin tones and especially to take on holiday as you use the highlighter shades as eye shadows as well- 10/10.

Packaging: It has a very simple packaging and its pretty simple to use but I wished it had a mirror- 08/10.

Pricing: £39, quite expensive but you get four shades and its a good investment if you like changing your highlighter shades- 9/10.

Overall as a product: It does what it is meant to do- 9/10.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks in Gossip Gurl and Trophy Wife:

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks claims to be kiss-resistant veil of vibrant colour that won’t smudge, flake or transfer. So I put it to the test as usually any form of lipsticks don’t tend to stay on my lips for long some odd reasons.

Product & Shades: There are quite few shades which is good so there is something for everyone to play around with. The product itself has a very strong scent to it, Usually I don’t really mind some of my makeup products having a nice hint of a fragrance but personally I found the scent to be quite offensive like some horrible medicine- 6/10.

Texture & How to Apply: The lipstick it self comes with a sponge applicator, which is good and simple to use if you are blending shades. The product it self to be quite runny and also quick drying- 8/10.

Suitability : I personally think these shades are suitable for all skin colours but there are some shades that are quite pale of off looking for deeper or tan skin tones but a quick fix for that is to use a good lip liner and create a good ombre effect- 8/10.

Packaging: It has a very simple and chic packaging- 10/10.

Pricing: £18, I personally think its a bit overpriced but I would buy the product again its a dream lipstick shade that contains 5ml- 7/10.

Overall as a product: It does what it is meant to do, for a girl who some how eats her lipstick and re-applies 100 times throughout the day. This was good I had to reapply only once and that was after eating food- 9/10.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick has been one of those lipsticks I have been wanting for years as so many YouTube guru’s rave about the product’s staying power.

Product & Shades: This product has a nice hint of a fragrance but personally I found quite pleasant and there is a range of shades for the liquid lipstick line which is great because there is something for everyone to play around with and the plus point is that the product is highly pigmented and are joy to play around with- 9/10.
