NYX Bare With Me Hydrating Cheek Tint (Review and Swatches)

NYX Bare With Me Hydrating Cheek Tint (Review and Swatches)


The NYX Bare With Me Hydrating Cheek Tints are limited edition and available in 3 shades. If you like cream blushes these are a great affordable option at the drugstore. These cheek tints are lightweight, hydrating and last all day. I always worry about cream blushes not blending well or being too pigmented, you don't have to worry with these. They also don't mess up your foundation underneath. They're quite natural looking on the skin, glide on easily and blend effortlessly. 

Makeup Geek Peach Bellini Eyeshadow palette (Review and Swatches)

Makeup Geek Peach Bellini Eyeshadow palette (Review and Swatches)

Makeup Geek is a brand that I want to explore a bit more when I was first started watching Youtube the brand was pretty big but I've always preferred palettes over single shadows and for that reason I didn't really purchase much from them. Recently, Makeup Geek can be found in some Target stores and they've released more palette versions. This particular palette is the Peach Bellini, a very warm palette. For those who prefer cooler toned palettes, you can check out the Champagne and Roses palette. This is currently 19$ on the Makeup Geek site.

"An Ultra Gentle 3-in-1 cleaning balm that melts away makeup, deeply cleans away impurities and leaves the skin fully supply and hydrated." 

-Physicians Formula

The Physicians Formula Melting Cleansing Balm is a new addition to the drugstore. I always double cleanse and a balm is my preferred method to use for makeup remover. I purchased this myself and couldn't wait to see how it performed. The balm is packed with antioxidants, enriched with Matcha Green Tea, Bamboo Shoot, and Lotus Extract. It is also free from mineral oils but does contain fragrance.

I'm pretty new to powder foundations and I was excited to give this one a try when it was sent from Make Up Forever. This powder foundation claims to be a full coverage blurring foundation with a matte velvet skin finish. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to apply with the sponge. The sponge has two sides; the black side will give you fuller coverage while the white side will provide
a lighter coverage. It comes in a refillable compact that closes very well for portability. 

Missha Perfect Cover B.B Cream Review

Missha Perfect Cover B.B Cream Review

Fast Facts

-UV Protection SPF 42 PA+++
-Hydrating Dewy Coverage
-Naturally Flawless Finish
-Available in 7 Shades

The Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream has been raved about and I really wanted to give it a try. Many of the claims of this product are what I look for in a face product, and while this is a Korean beauty product it's not hard to order from the various retailers online. The UV protection is great for every day, especially in the summer months which really drew me in. It has medium buildable coverage and responds well to brushes, sponges and air puffs. 

Alamar Cosmetics: Colorete Blush Trio Fair/Light Review and Swatches

Alamar Cosmetics: Colorete Blush Trio Fair/Light Review

Alamar Cosmetics is a smaller Indie brand founded by Gabriela Trujillo, you may have seen her on the Boxy Charm social media before she left to pursue Alamar Cosmetics. She is also a friend of Kathleen Lights and worked as a makeup artist for her. Before living in Miami, Gabby lived in a housing project in Cuba called Alamar. Alamar actually means "stay close to the sea" which to Gabby meant staying closing to your culture. It's clear that her culture shines through in her brand. The brand launched in 2018 and currently has a range of eye shadow palettes, blush palettes, lip gloss and blush trios. This blush trio was in a recent Boxycharm and I was really excited to try the brand.

Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette (Review and Swatches)

Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette (Review and Swatches)

"Inspired by the warm glow of a morning sunrise, this impeccable palette contains Shades of warm sunny yellows, crimson corals, earthy browns and powerful pinks and fuchsias, all made to melt together in perfect harmony." This colour story really caught my attention when I saw sneak peaks and while the Natasha Denona Sunset palette has been on my wishlist since it launched in 2017, I'm glad I waited because this Sunrise palette is warmer and more versatile. The Sunset palette is much more neutral.

Boxycharm Luxe Box Unboxing  (Boxyluxe June 2019) (Tarte, PYT, Touch in Sol, Living Proof, Dominique Cosmetics and more)

My Boxycharm box arrived and I always feel like a kid receiving a surprise bag. June offered an upgrade luxe box and I decided to opt in. As a Canadian subscriber, I really do feel like this is a great way to try products for a great price. I paid about 80$ for the entire box, shipping included and the total value is worth much more. I will break it down as I explain what I received. This month Boxycharm sent out a form that you can customize a few details to add on your wishlist, I remember asking for the Tarte Blush palette over the eyeshadow palette but I don't remember what other customization were offered. It was sent out at the beginning of May.  I did see some spoilers around social media, but you never know exactly what's in your box until you open it, since there's a lot of variations to the box.

Let's get into the box:
