ModelCo Highlighting Trio review

Guys, it's September. We're edging away from the nice, happy, sunny days and into the doom and gloom of Autumn and Winter. However, we don't need to let rain get us down and to make us lose our summer glow.

The ModelCo Highlighting Trio is a face palette that contains a combination of luminous shades to help us keep that healthy glow all year round.

It has three different shades in the pan, a darker, bronzing shade (Bronze), a pink blush shade (Peach Bellini) and a light pink highlight shade (Champagne). They all contain a bit of shimmer, but I'll go into this a bit more in a moment.

They come packaged in a small, black, circular pan with a flip cap lid that has a transparent lid to see the product inside.

This arrived in my September Birchbox (the other ModelCo item available is the Creme Rouge lip and cheek tint which I highly recommend checking out), so if you're interested in checking it out it may be worth also checking out this months Birchbox!

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter review

Every now and then there are certain products that you see cropping up everywhere with everybody raving about them. Sometimes they’re products that you’ve tried and you’re probably one of those raving, but others you probably haven’t and you begin to question what all of the hoo-hah is about.

theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer is one of these products. If you are one of those who love to scroll through the #bbloggers hashtag on Instagram, the chances are that you have definitely seen this highlighter in more than one, two or three photos! Therefore, needing a new highlighter anyway and being a fan of all other theBalm products that I have given a go, I had to give it a try. With that said, I've now owned this for quite a while yet I just hadn't gotten around to reviewing it, until now (better late than never, huh?).

Mary-Lou Manizer is a powder highlighter that claims to add a subtle yet healthy glow to the skin. It's a champagne shade that is suitable for an entire range of skin tones, but will probably work best for those with yellow undertones.

It comes packaged in a silver compact that has a mirror inside. The lid contains the retro style that theBalm use in their packaging (similar to Soap & Glory and Benefit if you've never seen theBalm style packaging before).

Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm review

I love the Clinique Chubby Sticks. Who doesn't love the Clinique Chubby Sticks? They're so simple to use and they work great. This is why I've been wanting to get my hands on today's product for a while, but as usual, hadn't gotten around to it yet (there's too many things on the list, that's why!). But now I have. Woohoo!

The Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm is a cream blush in the traditional Chubby Stick packaging. Clinique claim that it is an oil-free, creamy, mistake-proof blush that creates a healthy looking glow on the skin. 

It comes in a range of four shades, but the one that I have to show you today is 03 Roly Posy Rosy which is described as a tawny/coral colour.

It comes packaged in the same type of packaging as the rest of the Chubby Stick range; a chubby pen type of packaging that is made of plastic the same colour as the product inside. It has a twisty bottom to push the product up when you need more and it also has a plastic cap to cover it.

Puriskin Core Performance Therapy Resurfacing Formula for Face and Body review

If you're a regular reader of the blog, then I am sure that you are well aware of my love for versatile beauty products. Especially ones like the one featured in today's review.

The Puriskin Core Performance Therapy Resurfacing Formula for Face and Body is a natural cream that is designed to help with a range of skin issues, including acne scars, blemishes, bruises, dermatitis, burns, cracks, surgical scars, stretch marks, razor bumps, age spots and more.

The cream includes Vitamin E and cucumber as well as cocoa butter, comfrey and tigergrass. In addition, it also contains a selection of essential oils, including jojoba, coconut, borage, evening primrose and chamomile as well as allantoin, known for its healing abilities.

On top of all of that, it is also lanolin and paraben free.

The full size comes packaged in a squeezy tube that holds 50ml of product, but the one that I have is the small tin version that arrived in a previous Birchbox.

The cream itself is white in colour and doesn't really have any kind of scent to it. There is just a hint of a "emollient" like scent, which will probably make more sense if you've tried those types of products before.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil review

Eyebrows and Benefit are two words that are a match made in heaven. Benefit know brows. They are good with brows. You know that you could walk up to a Benefit counter, sit down, not say a word and know that you will leave with the best brows on road (see my Benefit Brow Bar experience post). So when they released a new range of eyebrow products, beauty fans got excited. Understandably.

Today I have one of the new releases to show you all: the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. There are so many options from the new Brow Collection range for different types of eyebrows, whether you have sparse brows, shapeless brows, unruly brows, whatever. The Goof Proof Brow Pencil is described as being the best option for patchy brows.

It has a simple to use, non-sharpen tip that comes in a sort of diamond-ish shape (more on that in a minute) and has a creamy, glide-on, waterproof formula for quick and easy eyebrow filling and shaping that also lasts for up to 12 hours. It comes in a range of six shades from the lightest, platinum blonde shades down to the deepest black (the one featured in this post is shade 5). Sounds good, right?

It comes packaged in a super pretty silver, double-ended pencil with the actual product on one end and a spoolie brush on the other, both covered with funky, geometric caps.

Now let's get into how this bad boy actually works.
