5 Cult Beauty Products Worth the Hype

26857126_10156020027888493_521196340_n‘Cult Beauty Products’ are always used as buzzwords by makeup journalists to get your attention. It basically just means the products that you’ve been seeing a lot of in videos, on celebrities, on Instagram and in blog posts. Usually, the fact that so many people use it is a testament to it’s worth, but the hype could also just be chalked up to good marketing, and the actual products fall short in reality. Here are my top 5 cult beauty (makeup) products that are actually worth all the hype, ranging from luxury, to drug store….

Best Concealers for Under-Eye Circles

As you may very well know from reading around here, I have chronic undereye circles thanks to my wonderful Mediterranean heritage! While I have lots of love for my Mediterranean roots, I have less love for their gift of undereye circles. Learning how to not look like I’m constantly sleep deprived was a struggle – eye creams seem to have a minimal affect, and colour correcting seems to fade away almost instantly. After years of playing around, I thought I would do a roundup of my favourite concealers! This one’s  for covering my undereye circles for the rest of my brothers and sisters who live their lives looking chronically fatigued (whether you are or not is an entire other thing)….

MAC Prep, Prime + Fix | Review

p coverThis review is the last in a set of MAC’s favourite face products reviews where I looked at MAC’s Face + Body Foundation, and MAC’s Select Cover Up. Face products’ performance always comes down to what primer you’re using, which makes it one of the most important products in your makeup bag! People love MAC’s Prep, Prime + Fix Primer because it can prep your face and make makeup last longer, and it can be sprayed onto individual brushes to make face + eyeshadow colours appear more pigmented. Multi-faceted products like this are my favvvv because you get 2 for 1 cost, and they’re great for when you’re travelling! YES. …

MAC Select Cover Up | Review

cover c

Mac’s Select Cover Up concealer is another one of my favourite Mac products, and my absolute favourite high-coverage concealer. On MAC’s website it’s rated at 4.5/5 and after using it religiously for a few months, I can totally see why. Last week I talked about Mac’s Face and Body Foundation – both of which I bought because I saw how incredible they worked on Perrie Edwards’ Makeup Tutorial, and I haven’t been disappointed in either! I’ve been using this concealer pretty much every time I’ve worn makeup since Christmas, so I’ve tried applying it a few different ways and I’m finally ready to post a thorough review! If you’re looking for a high coverage concealer to cover redness or under eye circles, look no further. …

MAC's Face + Body Foundation | Review

f 1I first fell in love with MAC’s Face and Body foundation because it’s packaging looked so cool and professional, and I wanted to be the kind of person who owned and used that kind of makeup (guilty!). I’m not going to lie, the first time I saw it was on Perrie Edward’s Makeup Tutorial, and I commented asking what she used because (obv) she looked like a dream. A lovely fellow viewer cued me in on the Face + Body foundation (and the select cover up, there’s a review coming for that too!) and ever since it’s been on my wishlist. I’ve been using it for months now, and I think it’s about time I posted an in depth review. …
