INSIDE MY LUST HAVE IT

Something I can always rely on to brighten up my month is receiving a goodie bag full of amazing new products to try from Lust Have It. 


I'm going to be running you through the products that were included in this months bag and my opinion. We have a few familiar brands and a few exciting new ones so let's get into it.

COASTAL SCENTS CREATIVE ME 1 PALETTE REVIEW

Before we get into this, let's just stop and take a moment to appreciate how drop dead gorgeous the colours in this palette are. Immediately I'm thinking electric purple coloured liner or a mermaid blue eye look.

Anyone who is in love with colourful eye looks needs to stop what they are doing right now and go order this Coastal Scents palette online because these intensely vibrant colours are not to miss.

MADAM GLAM REVIEW

A pigmented Lip Gloss the perfect middle ground between a liquid lipstick and your average gloss. The kind of product that you can slap on and have it look like a decent lip colour without using a lipstick. 


So these hit a sweet spot in my collection that isn't too overcrowded. I am all about those Australis Velour Lips and MAC Cremesheen glasses but these are sort of like a mixture of both. In this post I'm going to talk about the formulation, colour selection, pricing and availability.

DIOR DUPE - DRUGSTORE ALTERNATIVES FOR THE DIOR FLUID STICK

I am more than likely to spend $50 on a foundation but when it comes to lipgloss I find it hard to justify spending so much. 


The Dior Fluid Stick is a beautiful product and one of my favourite formulations of lip gloss but it does come with the hefty price tag of $.

I have recently seen drugstore dupes emerging on the market that are a lot more affordable but have definitely been modeled after the Dior one. So I am putting two of these dupes to the test and comparing them against the authentic Dior Fluid Stick to reach a verdict on which gloss is most worth purchasing.

MUST HAVE FAKE TANNING EXTRAS

This time last week discussed the products to actually fake tan but a lot goes along with the process. In this post we are going to be discussing the extras such as tan enhancers, making sure your face matches your body, adding some shimmer over the top and much more. 


I have packed this post full of eight products I think assist your fake tan to look the best it ever will. Think of it as fake tanning taken to the next level for professional results.

Planning for my 21st - What do I need to do first?


This November I become 21. A 21st birthday is a pretty big deal and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a great opportunity to throw a party and the chance to celebrate with all my friends is something to get excited about it. So I’m already looking at how I can make it truly special.

Of course, it’s still a while away yet, but there are some things to think about now if it is going to be as fun as I hope it will be. I’m a long way off details but I’ve had a few ideas to help make it all go smoothly.



THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO NUDE LIP PRODUCTS



Nude lips are a fine art to master and hard look to pull off at times. I’m sure we have all seen concealer lip mishaps that turn us right off the lighter lip colour. 


It can be done really well if you find the right colour for your skintone and product to suit you. This post is all about discussing different shades of nude and formulation options to help you find the perfect nude product for you. I have broken this feature up into the sections; liquids, lipsticks and pencils so let's get into it.

MAYBELLINE COLOR BLUR LIPS // REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Yet another killer lip line from Maybelline. They better stop doing this to me or my lip product drawer is going to be even more out of control than it already is. 


The idea behind this dual ended product is to create a blurred effect. You can apply the product in the centre of your lips then use the rubbery end to then feather out the product. This gradient finish gives a "just been eating berries" look which was really popular a few years ago and is now making a comeback.

Before we continue, note that this is a very photo heavy post. I love this because I think that the products speak for themselves in terms of concept and colour.

HIGHLIGHT LIKE A VICTORIA'S SECRET MODEL

I have recently become obsessed with highlighter, adding it to even my most basic everyday look. What I love most is the dewy and youthful finish that it gives your skin so in this post I’m discussing products I have discovered that give you the coveted Victoria’s Secret glow. 


These are products that I find provide a stunning glowy finish and make you look like a bronzed goddess. I have a lot of variety in colour and consistency so that there is something for every skin tone and type.

DUPE FOR URBAN DECAY NAKED SKIN CONCEALER

The Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer caused waves throughout the online beauty community for being such a lightweight yet full coverage formulation but is it possible that there is a drugstore dupe?


I was using the Urban Decay Naked Concealer thinking there was nothing possibly better but I needed a lighter shade for undereye highlighting. I told myself I would go out and purchase a lighter colour asap but in the meantime to just use up some other light concealer lying around. That's when I first tried the Maybelline FIT Me concealer that had been sitting in my draw of products to try for too long. I was shocked at how lightweight and watery the formulation was but how creamy and high coverage it also was. It reminded me so much of the Urban Decay Naked Skin that I knew I had to trial and test them both to see if they were dupes.
