Fabulous Go-To Makeup

A few months ago I was sent some makeup to try by British brand, POPBeauty.  It’s from their summer line, but it’s taking me seamlessly into fall.

See the variation of purple eyeshadow in the top right corner?  That’s what I’m taking about.  You want to get a foxy, on-trend smokey eye this fall?  Use purple.  Pinkie promise it’s the best thing since sliced bread.  The kit is only $25 and includes everything you see: blush, bronzer, eyeshadow, and a full palette of lip-gloss.  Pretty great.

I was also introduced to this bad boy, tinted moisturizer.  I don’t know how I’ve never tried it before now, but the stuff is magic.  It’s SPF 30 which I love, and it adds just the most subtle hint of shimmer {subtle, I swear it} and coverage.

Here, I’ll show you:

See how it’s just a teensy bit shimmery, but it blends in seamlessly?  It’s really light, covers up the imperfections, and deflects the not-awesomeness.  I’m sold.

I love products that pack a one-two punch and this stuff gets the job done.  It’s more of a one-two-three punch because it’s a moisturizer, sunscreen, AND it covers up your imperfections.


It’s a little spendy at $24 but I take it with me everywhere.

Are you a make-up kit gal or do you mix and match?  Truth be told, I’m a bit of both.

    Talk about a steal of a deal. Too bad they are out of stock. :( I went to order a kit and well…I’m sad. I’m so checking back later though! Oh and I hope that you do call your girl and schedule that hair cut. It’s funny…I brought a copy of her hair to my last appt a week ago. I LOVE it.

    • Petit Elefant :

      Oh no! I’m checking on it for you.

      I AM going to call and schedule that haircut, I’m convinced!

    I am a mix and match person. But in all honesty, I don’t wear much makeup. Mostly just eyeliner and mascara. I don’t like the way most makeup feels on my skin.

    that being said, I still love to find good make-up. Those colors are great!

    I used to use a tinted moisturiser and LOVED it. I’m thinking, seeming as how my daily moisturiser is almost empty, I should look into the tinted kind again. =)

      Tinted moisturizer is the staff of life Shari.
