Today I wanted to post my first update for my current project pan! I have finished a few products and I’m seeing some good progress on others! I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you and my plan for this project pan in the coming months! I hope that you enjoy!
I’m sure that you’ve seen this challenge everywhere because it’s really been done to death BUT it is also super fun and if you want to give it a go, don’t let over production stop you! This challenge started after Mariya on posted a video using only highlighters and it became a meme on Instagram! Since then, YouTubers and bloggers have been attempting to recreate it with their own highlighters! It’s super fun and it was a great way for me to use some highlighters that I haven’t used in a little bit! I hope that you enjoy!
I’ve always had a sort of fondness for Essence. They are a cruelty free brand with something for anyone on any budget. They have such cheap products and you’d be surprised by how many awesome things they have. Most Australians know Essence for their great nail polish range, I think that in Europe their displays are much bigger than Australia’s.
One of my favourite things about Essence is that they do little collections each month with cool products and their latest collection in Priceline is the Bloom Me Up! collection. Apparently there is another collection on at the same time but this is the one I’ve seen in the Pricelines I visit. Bloom Me Up is full of pastel colours and the collection is a perfect way for us in the Southern Hemisphere to celebrate the first month of Spring!
Here is the shimmer powder:
It is quite pinky toned, which I love. I wear pink blushes and I’m not really someone who wears a lot of bronzer so this is really perfect! However, I do think that this would suit a lot of people and a lot of different makeup looks. It doesn’t show up very pink when swatched.
I tried my best to get a good shot of the shine on my hand but NOOOOO. Hopefully these next pictures of me wearing it will give you some idea of the shimma shimma.
I used it on both my cheekbone and my brow bone. I think you can see it best on the brow bone. I really love the effect it gives.
In this photo you can see it (with great difficulty) down the centre of my nose.
I plan on using this every day and in most looks that I will do in the future, I’m sure I’ll be wearing this. So, if you see some awesome highlight happening, you’ll know what it is!
I would definitely recommend this. If you’re unsure about it, your Priceline or Target may have one tester open, although I know that Essence aren’t well known for having testers for their limited edition collections. Its only $5.75AUD, how could you go wrong?
I’ve been waiting for this day for about a month! How perfect is it that its International Chocolate Day the same day that the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was born! Its also Don Bluth’s birthday today, I’ll be posting about that tomorrow 🙂
Here is what I did for Chocolate Day!
I just started using a powder highlighter and I was trying to take some photos of it. I might review it later on in the week because I’ve really been enjoying it! I was also planning on wearing brown contacts but my new brown contacts were deformed and I couldn’t use them so I used a pair I haven’t worn! The inner corner of my eye was highlighted with a white gold but you can’t tell grrrr.
