And Champagne and Treasured Twinkles (R61.95)
I bought a lipstick, the highlighter and blush and two nail polishes.
I think the best lipstick of the bunch is Caviar and Champagne a soft coral shade. It’s not too bright, but just bright enough to bring some colour to your face. It isn’t extremely long lasting or pigmented, and you definitely need two coats to get good colour payoff, but it feels really light and comfortable on the lips which is a huge must in winter. The swatch below is two coats of the lipstick.
Next up is the Golden Powder in Golden Grace which is a shimmery soft champagne powder. You can see from the swatch below how pigmented this highlighter is. I love that the powder is finely milled and not chunky at all. The shimmer of this highlighter is similiar to the Becca Shimmering Pressed Skin Perfectors. Would anyone like to see a dupe test?
The last swatch below is the Powder Blush in Caviar and Champagne, how pigmented is it? It is even more pigmented than the lipstick, who knew that was possible? If you are only getting one product from the collection, let it be the blush. It is universally flattering, easily blendable and the colour payoff is amazing! It has a slight shimmer, but nothing to be afraid of as it doesn’t emphasise pores. Remember to use a light hand when applying this since it is really pigmented. I find a small fluffy brush works best to apply the product, and then a big fluffy powder brush to blend it in.
I also bought two of the four nail polish shades, the other two shades were too pearly for me. The dark red shade is called Treasured Twinkles and it is a one-coater. It applies so well with no streaking and a minimal pearl effect. It isn’t a very unique shade, but if you don’t have anything similiar then this is definitely a good add to your collection, it is perfect for winter for both fingers and toes. The second shade I bought is Caviar and Champagne, which is a soft coral with a light pearl effect. It is a bit streaky on the first coat, but evens out well on the second. It is bordering being too pearly for my liking, but the soft coral shade trumps the pearl finish. It is a unique shade, and I am happy to add this to my collection.
