Makeup dressed up as food? Beauty Bakerie clearly understand me. I’ll admit it. I have a slight weakness for quirky, gimmicky beauty, although it’s coupled with a good dose of cynicism after many purchases that were all looks and no substance. Beauty Bakerie, whose entire line of products centre around food based puns and packaging, had me on two counts – one for having a range of delectable sounding highlighters which are one of my beauty weaknesses and two – for dressing it up like a tub of ice cream. Oh and the brand are vegan and cruelty free for bonus points.
I think at this stage, most of us have tried the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer or at least heard a lot about it. If you haven’t, it’s a pretty great little buy and continues to be one of the best selling concealers out there, so a new concealer release from NARS was always going to be big news. And here it is – the new NARS Soft Matte Concealer. There was a blast of fanfare when this came out initially but it seemed to die down a little quickly which I feel may be down to the fact that the word ‘matte’ may have potentially stopped more girls jumping in with both feet than with the original. So if you’ve been intrigued by either but not sure which, if any, to plump for, maybe this post can nudge you in the right direction.
