True Romance with Kat Von D Angeles, Deborah Milano & Nyx

So I cannot express the True Romance that I share with Kat Von D Eyeshadows. Every single time I reach for one of these palettes in my collection, I fall in love with it all over again. They are a bit dusty so I'm always sure to tap off my brush, but oh my god they're pigmented, smooth and rich and the shades themselves are divine. This Angeles palette is even harder to come by as a Sephora exclusive but it is absolutely stunning

Today's Deborah Milano Blusher in Rosa Pesca is one that the lovely MissMai27 from YouTube sent me from Paris in a recent swap. It is one of those beautiful blushes that imparts such a lovely colour and a gorgeous highlight at the same time. I applied my Lorac today before the blusher, forgetting that it is not needed with this blush! Loving it Sanni- feels so youthful, thank you!

Also, I've really been loving my lavender Nyx Full Coverage Concealer that I picked up at IMATS in New York in April. I really feel like this does for my undereyes what no peach or salmon concealer can do- brightening!! Here I've been thinking I need to correct the darkness thinking of it as blue, when I think what I really need is the brightening from a purple. LOVE!

Furthermore, I am finally happy with my undereyes again in terms of creasing throughout the day. I thought the daily creasing I have been experiencing was due to a new eye cream or part of my skin care/ prep routine, but I think the brushes I've been using (traditional concealer / foundation paddle-style brushes) have been letting me down. Instead, I've been using a sponge from Kit Cosmetics that looks like a double-ended Beauty Blender but is something so completely different and I'm loving it (ABSOLUTELY loving it!) for concealer both for under my eyes and all over my face.

What do you like to use to apply your concealer?

Wishing you a beautiful day,

  1. where did you buy the kat von d makeup? its almost impossible to get it in australia!

    1. I got mine from Sephora in the states- my sister sent it over for me. There are a few listings on ebay, but Kat Von D is always one of those brands (along with Tarte, Hard Candy, Tarina Tarantino, Urban Decay, Lorac, Wet n Wild etc...) that I always recommend people go check out if they're visiting the states. So many brands that are great that are hard to come by in this country!!

  2. I really wished that sephora shipped to Aus! or opened a store here

  3. It's wonderful beauty collection.I really like it and i have seen great beauty products with high quality of uses.You can visit and may be get something great ideas about it.
