The product: The mineral loose powder has SPF15. The powder can be used dry for a lighter coverage or wet for a heavier coverage.

The packaging: The mineral loose powder comes in a round plastic container with a silver screw on lid and the Lust logo across the top. The underneath of the container has your chosen colour and the ingredient list. The container comes with a sifter inside which is very handy and stops spillage. All powder containers should have this!

The review: I really love using Lust for its natural ingredients. I am a full coverage girl so I use this powder over the top of my liquid foundations, both lust and other brands. I really liked this product. The powder was silky smooth and felt very lightweight. I got the powder in a darker shade than usual so it would work nicely with my fake tan or I could use it for bronzing when my foundation is a bit lighter!

Lust Mineral Stick Cream Foundation

lust-mineral-stick

Hi everyone, I hope you are having an amazing new year so far!
Today I’m writing a review about the Australian cosmetics brand ‘Lust Minerals’ Stick Cream Foundation. This product was sent for review.
Firstly, a couple of things about Lust Mineral Cosmetics:

They support cruelty free
– Are completely vegan friendly
-They do not use any animal testing.
– The products do not contain harsh chemicals, fillers, parabens, bismuth oxychloride, carmine FD & C dyes or artificial fragrance.
– Lust Minerals was founded on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

We found each other on social media mid last year. Lust Minerals had asked me to do a couple of makeup tutorials for their brand (linked below) and I learned a lot about the company and got to use most of the product’s in the range during the filming of their online tutorials and product overviews.

This is a mini review of their Stick Cream Foundation with a video tutorial!

Packaging – Lust Mineral stick cream foundation has very simple packaging. It’s a white tube with the brand logo printed on the front and the colour choice underneath. It is great for travel and it is practical.  It is a wind up foundation stick.

First Impression – My first impression was that it was very creamy. This foundation works great when applied with your fingertips or a brush. I then blend it out using my beauty blender (I do this with all foundations). It is very lightweight and left a nice, natural & fresh looking finish. As the product is creamy, on oily skin types I would use a translucent/setting powder over the top to mattify the foundation. It is a great foundation to create a dewier look which I did in the first tutorial. It also works well on mature and drier skin types but is indeed suitable for all skin types.

This foundation is available for purchase on  www.lustminerals.com.au

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault Review

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault

swatchesvaultpic

I’m sorry I’m so late posting this! I had such a crazy busy time over the holiday period. Its also so incredibly hot here at the moment which makes swatching a little hard! Lol.

So many people have asked about this product and what I think of it, so I think it is still worth doing the review.
The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault is available at Priceline in Australia. The last time I checked they still had the vault there so get in quick!
This product is a Christmas LIMITED EDITION.

This vault includes 36 mini’s of every single shade in the soft cream mattes plus FOURTEEN exclusive colours which are:

– BERLIN
– PARIS
– BUDAPEST
– HAVANA
– MADRID
– SAN JUAN
-VANCOUVER
– SEOUL
– MOSCOW
– ROME
-MANILA
– DUBAI
– BANGKOK ( Favourite!)
– LOS ANGELES

Colours


I absolutely love the colour choices in this vault. Some of the colours may seem a little scary but I used that to step outside my comfort zone. I’m loving the look of a matte nude eye and a bright bold lip at the moment! My favourite colour without a doubt is Bangkok. I’ve gotten so many compliments wearing it and just recently did a purple look for Instagram using it (below) and my audience was loving the bright lip!

The stand out colours for me would be Tokyo (limited edition), Stockholm, Havana (limited edition), Moscow (limited edition), Copenhagen, Cairo and Transylvania.

Obsessed!

Formula

I really enjoy the soft matte creams.The formula is very soft and moussey but the colour pay off is still very good with most of the colours. A few were a little patchy but after layering were fine. I did prep my lips a little as I always do using matte lipsticks. My lips had been exfoliated and I have a thin layer of lip balm on. I had little to no transfer with these which surprised me with them being a cream.

Product

These lip creams in the vault are not the full size but the mini’s! I think this is great as it gives you a chance to try colours you wouldn’t normally use, mix and match and figure out what you would repurchase while giving you the limited edition colours as well!

Overview

I’m so excited we have NYX in Priceline Australia as im such a big fan! I loved this vault and the looks that have been created because of it.
Now I just need the NYX Suede lipstick vault!

I hope you enjoyed this review…this product was NOT sent to me for review and all thoughts are my own 🙂
