Glo Up

HOW EXCITING! This week I announced a new type of highlighter that will be on Phee’s Makeup Shop in October. Luxe Highlighters are even more pigmented, with an even more intense reflect for a wet look highlight. Glo Up is the first Luxe Highlighter to be revealed and is a bright pinky purple highlight.

The reflect disappears almost completely until it catches the light. Brb just going to bathe in it …

Autumnal

I don’t know if I like this or not but here goes anyway. It probably could’ve done with a darker lip colour. Messing around with warm, autumn shades for a monochrome-ish look.

After swatching this lipstick for my Kat Von D Beauty haul, I had to create a look with it the same day. I only had daylight to play with, which I’m not used to at all, so some of these photos came out best on my phone.

This is a classic glam – red lip and winged liner – that can be worn on so many occasions, or even if you just want to sit around your house feeling like a badass (like I did). The blue toned red lip will also make your teeth look whiter.

A Kat Von D Beauty Haul

Kat Von D Beauty recently launched on Debenhams here in the UK and of course, we lost our minds a bit. No more paying stupid shipping and customs costs, or waiting until you or one of your family members goes on holiday to the US to give them a shopping list. It’s here and you can get it click and collect to pick up the next day.

So here’s what I bought and a quick first impression of it all.

img_6132

Before anything else, huge thank you to Debenhams customer service who rang me up to let me know the product codes were mixed up online, and that they shipped me the correct lipstick and that I could keep the one that was the wrong shade. Definitely won me over there!

My original order was for the Tattoo Liner in Trooper and Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in Outlaw and Beloved. I was sent LUV by mistake with my first order. You also get a mini Tattoo Liner in the sample box.

Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks – £16 each

I was really surprised by how reasonable the prices were for all the products – especially these liquid lipsticks. There is a good range of colours on the site, although some haven’t come over with the UK launch yet. I’d also recommend looking up reviews and swatches of the ones you’re interested in to get a good idea of the colour.

The packaging is so lovely and detailed. I believe that the designs are actually done by Kat herself too? Either way, they’re a really nice touch. The wand took some getting used to as it’s reaaaaally long, but the doe foot and the formula allow you to create a really precise lip line without the need for a liner.

These liquid lipsticks don’t bleed, they layer really well without bunching or crumbling off and the way they fade is pretty even too so you can go a few hours without needing to touch up. The also dry down completely matte without any stickiness and when they’re dry, they feel light on your lips and don’t transfer at all. Definitely worth the £16!

Tattoo Liner in Trooper – £16

The last time I used a liner like this it ended in disaster. I was worried this would be the same with the swatch I’ve got of it, but luckily that was just because I was impatient and didn’t let the liner saturate the brush fully.

So this liner has a proper brush tip rather than a felt tip, so you can get a really precise, fine line with it. It’s super black so it doesn’t need to be layered. If you like a matte liner, this one might not be for you, as it does have a shiny finish.

Once it’s on and dry, it lasts all day without cracking or dropping down.

New On Phee’s Makeup Shop: 37mm Compacts!

I’ve been waiting to bring these 37mm compacts out for so long, but to buy them in the quantities I needed I’ve have to get saving. You see the thing is, Phee’s Makeup Shop is completely my thing – I want to build it with my own money.

A lot is going into product development and I’m excited to for you see what’s coming!

So these new compacts fit the 37mm pans in them. So far I’ve put in the most popular highlighter shades – that are some of my favourites too – and the original Neutral Trio of eyeshadows. Each compact has a mirror inside and is really sturdy so it’ll withstand some travelling or if you want to pop it in your bag to take out with you.

The Neutral Eyeshadow Trio – £25

It’s back! Now I’ve got the compacts some product trios will be making a comeback. I still love these shadows as much as the day I first pressed them.

Peppered is a beautiful taupe that you can brush over the lid for a subtle shimmer or press on for an intense foiled finish. Sphinx has a matte base, but still has a lot of shimmer to it so you get a vibrant copper that’s easy to blend out, and finally there’s Polilla. This shade is the a great dupe for MAC Blue Brown and Illamasqua Fervent loose pigments.

Highlighter trio – £25

These three highlighters are my favourites to use alone or use them all at once. You guys love them too, so I put this trio together.

The Original is the first highlighter shade I ever made and is a champagne shimmer. Luna is a white gold that is beautiful on loads of skin tones because it’s more neutral and Bellini is a peachy highlight with a gold reflect.

Mini Rainbow Highlighter – £11.50

Of course this one had to come in compact form! I also can’t stress enough this is a MINIATURE version of the 59mm Rainbow Highlighter. It’s mini, it’s 37mm, it’s small.
