Product Review: BH Cosmetics Nude Rose Highlighter Palette

I love highlighter. I can never get enough of it. You all know I want to glow all the way to space. Recently I received the BH Cosmetics Nude Rose highlighter palette. I was impressed by 3 of the shades. The pink shade is a little chalky and it has a subtle sheen to it. So if you’re not into the dramatic glow then this shade is for you. Here are the swatches:

 

The rest of the shades are pretty pigmented. For the price (US$10.50) I think it’s worth it because you get 4 different shades. I have been using the two gold-ish shades the most. I find it the most flattering on my skin and I’m very surprised at how pigmented it is. Below I’ve included a photo of me using the highlighter palette. How blinging is that? 🙂 You can get yours at bhcosmetics.nygmarosebeauty.com.

Makeup Forever x Jessie J Artist Acrylip First Impression


Makeup forever released a new product in collaboration with Jessie J called the Artist Acrylip. It comes in 10 shades. I saw makeup forever posted it on instagram and I stumble upon Jessie J’s music video where she was wearing this lipstick. Look pretty cool to me. So over the weekend I make my way to Sephora Ion to look for makeup case. Sadly I didn’t see any makeup case around. I was approached by the salesperson at the makeup forever booth and she was asking me if I wanted to try the lipstick. Sure enough I did. I was so used to matte liquid lipstick and just regular MAC lipstick, this makeup forever lipstick consistency was pretty glossy. It wasn’t drying.

Do I like it? Yes. It is very pigmented. However when I apply the first layer it was pretty streaky. Could be because I didn’t use it straight from the tube where it comes with a cushion type of applicator. Due to hygiene reason the salesperson gave me a new lip applicator to use. I had to go over a couple of times for it to really look even. I tried on the shade 501 eggplant. It is a deep purple colour. I absolutely love this shade. It is not transfer proof. I had the lipstick on for about 3 hours and it is pretty lasting. When I got home I remove it. Don’t sleep with your makeup on! According to the salesperson you can make it matte by applying their HD powder or any loose powder after you apply the lipstick. Each tube cost SGD$33. I would rate it 7/10.

Right now Makeup Forever Singapore is having a contest on Instagram. You stand a chance to win the full set of Artist Acrylip (worth SGD$330). They have 3 sets to giveaway. All you have to do is drop by Sephora ION or Ngee Ann City and look for the makeup forever booth where you can try on the lipstick and have your picture taken using Polaroid. Then you can post it up on your instagram and tag makeup forever’s instagram page with the hashtag #IAMANARTIST #PAINTYOURLIPS. This contest end on the 20 January 2017. Till next time beauties.

Peace & Love,

Where to buy makeup brands that you can’t find at Sephora Singapore

Calling all my Singaporean makeup junkie! This post is specially for you. If you’re like me, you love to try on new makeup products. You follow brands on instagram and you’re just dying to get your hands on them. The problem is.. They can’t be found in Singapore. Sephora Singapore don’t carry most brands. Sure you can order it from their website but the shipping price can be expensive. Some cost more than the actual makeup itself! Another thing is you hate waiting for shipping. Some orders take me 3 weeks to arrive from US to Singapore! It’s insane. So I’m gonna fill you in on where you can buy all the makeup from Singapore based online shop. Shipping will be faster and no need for exchange rate. YASSSSS!

1.) Shopping District. 

I have shop here a couple of times and I never encounter any problem with my package. They carry brands like colourpop, NYX, Anastasia Beverly Hills and many more. They sometimes carry out lucky draw that you can participate so like them on facebook. You can head over to shopping-district.net to shop.

2.) Makeupbudget.com

I shop here once where I buy my Sacha Buttercup Setting powder. I love this product so much and I am so thankful that they sell it on their website because to buy from Sacha website is very very expensive for shipping. They carry brands like Hudabeauty and Morphe. At the time of this post their website is currently under maintenance. Their facebook page update that they are on a break until Jan 2017. You can check out their facebook page here.

3.) Smoochiezz

I come across Smoochiezz when I was walking around Great World City and they have a sale going on there. It’s one of those booth set up at shopping mall. So I took their name card and realise they have an online shop. I bought my L.A girl cosmetics products from them. You can check them out smoochiezz.com. Like their facebook page.

4.) Coma Makeup

I’m pretty sure you have stumble upon them before but if you haven’t, now you have. They carry brands like Coloured Raine, Juvia’s place, wet n wild and many more.

5.) Cosmetique World

If you haven’t check them out, you should. Like right now. I stumble upon them and I was spoilt for choice on their selection of liquid lipsticks! Obsessed! I want everything! Some products are in stock and some you have to pre-order. They were featured on Suria & I believe I heard about them on RIA 89.7fm radio station. They will held a pop up store on the 21 January 2017. You can head down and shop for all your makeup need! Or you can head over to their website cosmetiqueworld.net and shop now.

Peach Perfect

The beauty community are raving over the peachy eye makeup! Too Faced cosmetics will have exclusive events worldwide to celebrate the global launch of their Sweet Peach collection on the 7 January 2017. Who else is excited?! Looking at the palette I would say the colours are stunning. Definitely a staple and wearable for daily use. They did drop this eyeshadow palette in March and it was selling like hot cake! Fret not people, they are back and you can get your hand on the
m at Sephora or Too Faced website.

You know which cosmetic brand will be releasing a new eyeshadow palette too? Kylie Cosmetics. Yup. Another one to look out for. Kylie has been teasing us with this palette and we can’t wait to get them! It comes with 12 shades. This one is different from her other palette because… This time round she include a mirror and a brush! It’s retailing at $45. The palette will go on sale on the 12 January 2017, 3pm pst. So mark your calendar because you do not want to miss this one. You know how crazy it can be trying to buy makeup online!

Harley Quinn inspired

IG: @nygmarose

 

Recently I uploaded this Harley Quinn inspired look on my facebook page and instagram. I got a lot of love and I’m so excited to create more looks like this. I focus more on beauty makeup but once in a while I wanna switch things up a little bit. The challenge with creating that look was all the little detailing. You really need a very good eyeliner. I use a little bit of Kat Von D tattoo liner and also LA girl gel liner.

Now that eyebrow. I do not have any liquid/pomade type of consistency to use it for my brow. Thank goodness I have the inglot duraline. That stuff is magic. I mix the inglot duraline to H&M eyeshadow Kobai Azalea. So that’s what I use to do my brow. You should totally invest on the inglot Duraline. If you have a dried up gel liner/eyebrow pomade or even to get pigmentation on an eyeshadow you can use this stuff.

I use Hudabeauty palette for the shadow on my eyes. Using shades Maneater + Henna &  Black Truffle. Finish off the look with eyeliner and get the lipstick in red & black.

I’m looking forward to creating more looks. Do you have any suggestion to what other look you would like to see? Leave a comment. Till next time.
