thaBalm Hot Mama Blush/Shadow

Price: 27.95$ from Adore beauty, David jones, and bellabox website.

thaBalm Hot Mama blush has cute card board packing which closed tightly.




Hot mama blush is a kind of golden peach.  Its colour is very close to NARS orgasm (I do not own NARS blush but bloggers mark it as NARS dupe).The blush is highly pigmented, finely milled, creamy and easy to apply. It is not sheer and gives medium to full coverage. You do not need to rub brush on it, only light touch to the product can give you desire amount. The blush applied evenly on my checks and blends beautifully. It gives me peachy colour to my  checks and its shimmer works as highlighter on my check bones. I also used it as an eye shadow and it also look beautiful  as eye shadow.

This blush works really very well with my dry skin, it does not highlight or cling to my dry patches. It last for the whole day on my checks and i do not need to reapply it.

The only con of this blush is its shimmer which can highlight open pores or acne scares. All blushes with shimmer have this issue.

I really like this products, it work great with my warm skin tone. I highly recommend this blush for every one. This is fragrance free and ideal for sensitive skin.

Collective Haul

After a long I purchase some beauty products. I spend around 25$ for all these lovely goodies.




Big W has 4$ off sale on Face of Australia product. I have red very good review about their liquid eyeliner and it cost me around 4$ which is very cheap. FOA blush and highlight kit is also on sale and cost me around 6$. Covergirl lip gloss was on clearance at Coles and it was only 5$


Last but not the least, models prefer eye shadow kit, I bought it for 10$. After reading a lovely beauty blogger Basmah's post about this palette, I can not resist buying it. It has strong tin packing and colour selection is also great.

I hope you like my haul, if you are a fan of FOA, you should visit big W, there are so many lovely product with amazing price tag.

thaBalm Voyage palette review

Price: 49.95$ from David Jones

I bought theBalm Voyage palette on boxing day as it was on special and down to 34.50$ from 49.94$. I am using this palette for last few months and really found it a great. 


According to the balm website

" It is a travel-friendly palette that contains 16 jet-setting shadows paired with 3 lip and cheek creams that stow away conveniently in your carry on"









Swatches from left to right A4, B4,C4,D4
A3,B3,C3,D3


A2,B2,C2,D2
A1,B1,C1,D1


Second Officer, First Officer,Captain 

thaBalm Voyage Palette has cute cardboard packing with mirror inside, there are two different flap tops for eye shadows and check creams. The palette is very light weight and can be easily carried in my bag. The eye shadows can be used as wet or dry.  I have not used them with wet brush, as I do not like to use water on my make up products, it is more hygienic to use them with dry brushes. All these swatches are with dry brushes.

The quality of these eye shadows is really very good, they are creamy, silky, highly pigmented, easily applied and blended with very little fall out. They do not smudge or faded after hours. They last for long time even with out using primer. The check colours are also very pigmented and creamy. They last for long time on my checks, but they feel bit dry on my lips,still they last there for hours.

I like this palette, its versatile and you can create different looks with variety of colours. It contains  different kinds of shades like matte, shimmers and metallic.

The only down side of this palette is, its colour selection, I found that the shade selection is more suitable for fair skin beauties as some shades are not wearable for all skin tones. Some colours are very light and looks almost invisible and chalky on my olive skin tone. You can see in swatches that B1,C1,D3,A3 are not flattering for light/medium or dark skin tones.

I highly recommend it for fair skin beauties and for those who are looking for palette with variety of different shades.This palette contain shades which can create nude, classic, glamorous, or natural look.

Models Prefer CC Cream review

Price: 16.99$ from Priceline

Models Prefer unbelievable Colour Corecting CC cream  comes in a cute small tube. It is available in three shades, Light, Light/medium and Medium. Before trying this CC cream I have used Almay CC cream and I was happy with that one. I found that CC creams are more useful than BB cream, as they give medium coverage and even out skin tone while BB creams are very sheer and do not cover imperfections.






Swatch after blending on right side- you can see it covers red and uneven skin

Light/ medium shade shade looks perfect for my skin tone, It is very neutral shade not pinkish or orange. CC cream has pleasant smell which disappeared after application. I apply it after using my normal moisturiser (because I have dry skin). It has silky creamy texture which apply smoothly on my face. It is very easy to blend and I need only few seconds to apply it on my entire face. It instantly evens out my skin tone and gives me fresh flawless skin. It covers light acne marks, red patches and light brown spots on my face. It gives me matte fresh look, it is not  illuminating or shiny. Also I feel that it also help to hide my pores and gives smooth skin. It has very good staying power and last on my face for up to 8 hours. I used it regularly for a month and it did not broke me out or cause any negative reaction.

 I really happy to explore this wonderful product. I found that this CC cream is more suitable for those who have normal or oily skin while those who have dry skin can use it over their normal moisturiser. I highly recommend it for every one who is looking for affordable CC cream.
