Tarte Fairy Flush Blush Review

It’s no secret that Tarte blushes are some of my favourites thanks to their Amazonian clay 12-hour formula. So when Tarte released a blush with some very pretty packaging, I knew it was something I wanted for my collection.

Too Faced Passport to Bronze Set Review and Swatches

I picked up the Too Faced Passport to Bronze Set a little while ago, and after having a play around with the different bronzers included in the set, I thought I’d share my thoughts on this cute travel-sized collection.

The compacts in this set are made of cheap plastic, and are very light weight. Inside you get 2.5 grams of product, and no mirror. The pan size is considerably bigger than a single eyeshadow pan, or about the size of a fifty cent Australian coin.

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil

I own the full size of this bronzer, and it’s my all time favourite/most used bronzer. I recommend this for those with fair or light skin, as it isn’t very dark, and can be built up on the skin.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil

This is described as being a medium/deep matte bronzer, and while I was concerned it would be too dark for my skintone, I found it worked well with a light hand. I’ll use this in summer since it is a little deeper than what I’d usually go for.

Too Faced Sun Bunny

This bronzer reminds of Sweet Tea from Too Faced with it’s half-half design. This bronzer is shimmery, and can come across a little orange-y if built up too much. I still prefer my Sweet Tea bronzer over this one, but it’s a great size for travelling.

Price break-down

The set retails for $35 AUD on the Catch website, and you receive three compacts with 2.5 grams of bronzer in each, as well as a mini flatbuki brush. A Too Faced bronzer costs $44 AUD, and contains 10 grams of product. When factoring the cost of the bronzers alone, you are paying $4.60 per gram in the set, and $4.40 per gram when buying a full sized bronzer. So while you are paying slightly more for the bronzers in a set, you are getting three different types, as well as a bonus brush.

With all of the above being considered, I think this is a great set to pick up if you want to try a few different bronzers from Too Faced, and the quality is the same as their full sized bronzers.

Becca Light Chaser Highlights

Becca’s Rose Quartz is my all-time favourite highlight, so when Sephora had the Light Chaser range on sale, I couldn’t resist testing out these duo-chrome compacts!

Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss: Moon Jelly

Just as I had suspected, after hearing the Anastasia Beverly Hills glosses would no longer be sold in Sephora Australia stores, a bunch of shades where part of the Sephora 50% off mid year sales. As these lip glosses have my favourite formula, adding a few more shades to my collection at half price was too good to pass up. Here are my thoughts on the first shade, Moon Jelly. You can also read my review of the formula here.

Moon Jelly is an iridescent, semi-opaque shade with pink, blue and purple shimmer reflects. Like the other high-shine glosses I own from the range, the shimmer/glitter particles don’t have any grit to them.

Moon Jelly isn’t as pigmented as the other shades I own, however this is to do with its colour, rather than a difference in formulation. You wouldn’t really want an opaque white shimmer lip gloss anyway (or at least I wouldn’t)!

While I enjoy wearing the shade on its own, I feel this would look even better as a lip topper, and is worn best when paired with any cool-toned lipstick, particularly pinks.

Becca Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss in Topaz x Gilt

The 50% off sales not only had lots of Anastasia Beverly Hills products, but also Becca Light Chasing items, including the Liquid Crystal Lip Topper Glow Glosses. Since I bought a couple of Anastasia glosses from the sales, I just purchased one from Becca which looked unique and totally different to all the other glosses I currently own.

The lip gloss comes in holographic gold cardboard packaging, which is different to Becca’s standard brown matte packaging.

The gloss itself comes in a test-tube looking plastic packaging, with a rounded base, meaning you can’t stand the product up on its own. The lid has a miniature version of the Becca silver compact with a frosted brown cap.

The applicator is a slanted doe-foot, and picks up a generous amount of product with each dip inside.

The shade Topaz x Gilt is a warm brown shade with a blue-to-purple glitter shift. Despite its unique colour, the floss is still very wearable alone or as a topper.

It has a slight artifical french vanilla scent which doesn’t linger long, however I prefer the vanilla scent of the Anastasia glosses if I had to choose between brands. I also didn’t like the taste of the gloss, so I’m glad I didn’t purchase more than one from the range!

Like the Anastasia gloss formula, this Becca gloss was very comfortable on the lips with only the faintest amount of grit from the glitter particles. While I still prefer the formula of my other lip glosses, I’m glad I picked up this Becca gloss for the colour.

When the Moonchild Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills went on sale at Sephora, I felt like I needed to grab the sister palette to complete my collection (which was also on sale).
