Review: BYS Blush Trio

Hey Guys

Sorry for the lack of posts, my house was meant to get the internet set up this week (after a 6 week wait) but they couldn't find the line so someone else has to come in and check it out!! We have been using a pay as you go wifi modem for internet but we try to use it predominately for Uni as it is quite expensive (racked up almost $400 in the past 6 weeks :S).

Anyway on to a review of an awesome blush trio I wanted to share with you! I picked up BYS's Blush Trio in On the Brightside which contains three lovely pink blushes.

I found the packaging to be fairly typical from BYS, cheap quality plastic but you get what you pay for, ultimately the packaging is less important than the product and that's what I found with this blush trio. The colour pay off is fantastic like most of the BYS single blushes, you really need to be careful and apply with a light hand and fluffy brush or you will end up with far too much product on your face... Unless that's the result you want ha.

The colours are absolutely gorgeous and not at all similar when on the face. The first is a pink with shimmer throughout it but only a little shimmer transfers onto the skin. The next is a super bright fuchsia pink which is gorgeous but a bit scary for me to use! The last is a slightly lighter pink colour with no shimmer. All shades have good colour pay off and are very pigmented (particularly the middle colour) and last a good 4-5 hours on my oily skin. I think that this is good for travelling with as you have three different blushes in one palette and the take up little room and are fairly sturdy so unlikely to smash. 

Have you tried any BYS blushes?

Review: Maybelline New York Fit Me Blush

Hey Guys

This was a cheap chemist find, I found this blush from Maybelline New York  for only $4.50!! The blush I purchased is in the shade Deep Coral which I cant find on the Australian Maybelline website which could mean it is discontinued or not typically released here in Australia. I think that this is an absolutely stunning winter shade (I would wear it at any time of the year however), I can see this will quickly become my new daily blush shade.

This compact comes with a small fluffy brush which I don't personally use but it would be great for touch ups or applying this on the go. The blush lasts a good 5-6 hours on my oily skin and the formula is easy to blend in with a fluffy brush. This blush retails for $14.95 AU at Priceline, however they don't have the shade Deep Coral (at least not online). I recommend checking out your local Chemists beauty clearance bin to find some bargains, I found a lot of goodies!

What have you found on sale recently?

Savvy by DB Pocket Rock It Duo

Hey Lovelies

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that a while ago I picked up this $5 Pocket Rock It pack from Savvy by DB from Priceline. These $5 packs were all over Instagram about a month or so ago.

My Priceline finally got them in stock and so I picked up the blush and cheek balm duo in shade Plumage. This shade appealed to me as I don't really have anything similar already, I am more of a coral/peach blush wearer typically. Both of these blushes are a pinky red/reddy pink colour which is absolutely stunning. The blush has a fair amount of shimmer particles in it though unlike the balm which has a more iridescent glow to it. 

Wear time for both is around 4-5 hours on my oily skin, I just have to make sure to fully blend out the balm and set it with a powder. I usually pick a powder over a cream formula however I actually prefer the cheek balm to the powder, mainly because it is just a bit too much with the powder thanks to the insane amount of glitter.

For $5 you really cant go wrong, there are numerous packs which include eye products, lip products and face products. I am interested in the loose pigments and looking online it seems as though they are still available so I might just have to drop into my local Priceline to pick them up!

Love Liz xx
