L.A. Colors 3d blush contour kit – Bargain!! 

So, I have to confess to having a little bit of an obsession with contour kits. I seem to have gathered quite a few over the past couple of months.

The latest addition to my collection is this little kit by L.A. Colors priced at a crazy low price of £3. I purchased mine from Beauty Crowd.

I have to say I am really pleased with my purchase, and have been reaching for this over other contour blush kits that I own.

 

L.A Colors 3d contour blushAs you can see the kit contains a contour and highlight shade and a blusher. As a nice touch each is embossed with it’s function if you needed an extra guidance. It is available in twelve different shades. The shade I have is Hottie.

I’ve swatched the kit for you below, it really is very pretty. The contour shade is very unique, it has an almost red brick type quality.

As these are very pigmented a gentle hand is need with application, fortunately though they blend out nicely with a good blusher brush.

These little kits really are worth a look,  they are such a handy all in one kit, ideal for travel. At £3 I wouldn’t be stressing about it getting lost or damaged.

Have you tried anything from L.A Colors? I have my eye on glazed lip paints Here.

Good bye E.L.F UK! What were my favourites?

A few days ago, whilst looking for a link for another blog post, I discovered that the E.L.F UK franchise is closing it’s business. Distribeauty who where an exclusive distributer of E.L.F products have decided to go in a different direction. 

With that in mind, I have placed a wee order, before products become difficult to get hold of. I may share that here when that arrives. In the mean time though I thought it would be fun to share my favourite product discoveries from the E.L.F brand. 

 

 

1. High Definition Undereye Setting Powder.  This stuff is just great, it sets my undereye concealer brilliantly, whilst illuminating at the same time. A perfect pick me up for when I’ve had too many late nights.

 

2. Liquid Eyeliner – black. I consider this to be a very good dupe for Benefits Magic Ink, it’s so easy to use and glides on easily. Pigmentation is good for the price and as long as I don’t rub my eyes it stays put.

 

3. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer. This is such a good eyeprimer and is so cheap.  I will miss this, boo!  

4. Compressed Powder Eyeshadow duo in Berry. As you can see this has been well used, this used to be my go to for work. It’s a little bit chalky but blends out well and lasts a workday with the use of primer. Not sure why it was called berry though as to me that is not a berry shade. 

  

5. Mineral Eyeshadows. These mineral pigments are just fab, as you can see I’ve collected quite a few. My recent order will contain more shades that I haven’t got yet oooops! 

  

So there you go, these are my favourite E.L.F products. I will miss having easy access, good job I’m off to the US in October, I can stock up then. 

Distribeauty are taking their business in a different direction, they promise some exciting international products, and I’m excited to see what they will have to offer us beauty junkies.

Will you miss E.L.F? I love to hear what are you favourite products. 

Bye for now, Katy 🙂
