MAKE UP FOR EVER Water Blend Face & Body Foundation 'Y215', 'R240' - Review, Swatches, Before & After

MAKE UP FOR EVER has been killing the makeup game lately.  The Aqua XL liners (review HERE), and the Artist Rouge lipsticks (Reviews HERE and HERE) were big hits in my book.

My New Post-Colouring Hair Routine, ft. John Frieda Sheer Blonde Hi-Impact Collection - Review

It's no secret that this gal is a bottle blonde.  My hair has been almost every colour under the sun, but blonde is definitely my favourite, as well as the colour that I've been most committed to.

Cover FX Perfect Light Highlighting Powder 'Sunlight', 'Candlelight', 'Moonlight' - Review and Swatches

I love the highlighting trend - I hope it never goes away.  My highlighter collection keeps growing, and with so many formulas, I want to try them all.  They come in cream form, they come in liquid form with a dropper, but my all-time fave is definitely powder form.  I love being able to wiggle my big dramatic fan brush into the product and dust the glam all over my face.  Powder form is always easiest to blend (for me) and it sits so comfortably on my skin.

Soon you'll be seeing Cover FX's powder highlighters.  That's right - you can take three of the colours from the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops on the go, because they are in a travel-friendly compact.

I wish I had the chance to wear this lipstick more.  It's bright, it's fun, and I think the bright fuchsia lip is coming back, thanks to the latest MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande lipstick.
