Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation 120 review

I’ve been waiting to get my hands on my perfect shade of the Fenty foundation for months now. Every time I’ve gone in store to request a sample, they’ve always had 100 or 130 (the first being too light, and the later being too warm-toned). Sephora’s online foundation matcher listed me as 120, so I took a chance and purchased the shade online (something usually very risky for us fair girls!) Here are my thoughts on the Fenty Pro Filt’r Foundation.

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.

Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in Toffee

Toffee is my fifth Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss, thanks to the Sephora 50% off sale. This is one of the more neutral shades in the collection, and would suit most skin tones – including us fair girls!

Mecca Beauty Loop: Winter 2018

This quarter’s Beauty Loop boxes from Mecca were specially curated from their recent Beauty Election winners, staff picks and products from their “hall of fame”. While I’m always grateful for free samples, I will admit this Level 2 box didn’t ‘wow’ me.

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.

What do you think of this shade? Do you prefer coloured lip glosses that can be worn on their own, or lip topper shades such as Moon Jelly? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
