Do you love to have bronzed skin, but your hard-earned summer tan disappeared? Don't worry about that, because a well-chosen cheek palette will help you to return your beloved sun-kissed skin. Today I'm going to talk about Becca Sunchaser Palette: a beautiful trio of beach-inspired blush, highlighter and bronzer that will help you to recreate a healthy glow. This palette were nicely sent to me by Glam Express - one of my favorite platform for beauty enthusiasts. I have become a Spotlight Member of September and Glam Express community gave me this palette as a gift. So without further ado, let's proceed to the review.

The Sunchaser Palette features three gorgeous colors for your cheeks: 'Ipanema Sunset' -  a medium brown bronzer, 'Apricot Blossom' - peachy pink mineral blush and 'Opal' shimmering metallic pressed highlighter. The middle shade Apricot Blossom is marvelously decorated with Becca logo. I want to mention that all these three colors remind me very much of famous Naked Flushed contouring palette by Urban Decay. Even the weight of each shade from the palette is approximately the same. The fill weight of Naked Flushed Palette is 0,49 oz ( 14g) and the fill weight of Sunchaser Palette is 0,42 oz (12g).

All pigments are finely grounded and feel smooth and silky on the skin. They beautifully blend and give a desirable sun-kissed effect. Some people were complaining about bronzer, claiming that it was too harsh and dark. I have a very light complexion and can't complain about 'Ipanema Sunset', I just wish the shade was a little bit colder. 'Apricot Blossom' is absolutely gorgeous color and to be honest I'm tempted to try it out on my eyes, together with 'Opal'. The surface of the skin so polished after you finish to contour your cheeks.

How to use the Becca Cosmetics Sunchaser Palette? After you are done with your regular foundation routing and set it with translucent powder you can start to contour your cheeks. I prefer to start with 'Ipanema Sunset' and apply it under the cheekbones, gently blending it with a medium angled brush. Then I apply blush directly above the contouring and highlight the cheekbones to give my face a natural dimension.

Overall, I loved the Sunchaser Palette by Becca, the colors are pigmented and versatile. The design of the palette is amazing, you can take this trio with you on vacation or use it on a daily basis. At the moment Becca Sunchaser Palette retails at $58.00, but speaking frankly I don't think the price is justified. Of course the product is great and I liked it very much, but you can find a very similar and cheaper dupe. Until the next time ♥

Lots of love,

Naked Flushed Palette Top To Bottom - blush, highlighter and bronzer
As a big fan of dry contouring I was so excited to try out Naked Flushed Palette by Urban Decay and even more excited to talk about it to you my sweeties. There are tons of positive reviews about it on internet so I knew that I have to test it myself and I was sure that I will love it. The original Naked Flushed Palette was released in Spring 2013, but it is still gains popularity over makeup junkies and new fans in beauty community. By the way, this product is an Allure Best of Beauty winner and now I understand why! 

The famous Naked Flushed Palette includes a three essential products for counting - a bronzer, blush and a highlighter - all in one compact and travel friendly palette with a magnetic closure and a nice mirror inside. All three colors has a medium pigmentation, it is not very intense, so it is perfect for people with a lighter skin tones. But at the same time the pigmentation is good enough to create a dramatic contouring and highlighting. The bronzer is absolutely matte, it has a soft yellow undertone and gives a beautiful sun-kissed glow to the skin. Blusher has a bit of fine shimmer to the color, it is a bit more pigmented than a bronzer and I would describe the shade as a coral red. And my favorite product from this magic trio is highlighter - a soft champagne shade with beautiful frosty finish. All the colors are very easy to work with, the application is simple and the blending process in smooth, the colors stay on for hours.

You can easily contour, highlight and add some pop of color to your makeup look using just one palette. It is a must have for everyone who likes to have all essential products they need at hand. Urban Decay promises that Naked Flushed Palette is free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol, and mineral oil and I think that it is amazing. For those who think that the bronzer is a bit too yelowish for their skin tone Urban Decay released three more contouring palettes - Streak, Native and Strip. These palettes have slightly different shades and undertones, some of the shades are more intense and highlighting powder is lighter. It is always nice to have an options to choose ;)

Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette retails for $32.00 at Sephora and I think it is one of the best palettes to invest in. All shades are full size, so this palette will last for a very long time. I love it and I think you will love it as well, thanks for reading!

Have you tried Naked Flushed Palette by Urban Decay?

Hi pretty angels! How are you? I hope you all feeling great :) Today I want to introduce you another bronzer - Beauty UK Striped Bronzer*. I thought it would complete perfectly any summer makeup look so I decided to do a full review and talk about it's advantages in details. Hope you'll enjoy!

The Beauty UK Striped Bronzer comes in a simple round packaging with a clear tight cover. I love this simple and at the same time very classy designs. Product contains 5 colors in the pot - champagne shade, natural beige, peachy, bronze and dark chocolate. You can use them all separately, or mix the shades to receive one universal color, which looks almost the same as Beauty UK Baked Bronzer. I prefer to use champagne color as a highlighter and darker colors for contouring.

The texture of Beauty UK Bronzer is smooth and it also blends very well on the skin and gives a natural frosty finish. Striped bronzer will definitely fit girls with fair to medium skin tones, because it is not super pigmented. And don't worry it will never look orange on the skin :)

The Beauty UK Striped Bronzer retails for £3.29 and you can buy it on Beauty UK official website. I think this product definitely worth your attention. Don't forget to check out Beauty UK's new collection of gorgeous lip glosses. See you all soon, bye bye!

Lots of love,

Hi my beauties! The first summer month is officially gone and if you haven't been on a vacation yet I have an alternative remedy to give your skin a sun kissed look. This remedy is a Beauty UK Baked Bronzer* from their baked box collection and it was creating for a hot summer days. So let's take a detailed look!

The Beauty UK Baked Bronzer comes in a large paper box with a tight magnetic closure. It has a huge clear mirror inside, which makes the application of the bronzer super comfortable. When i first opened baked bronzer I was surprised with the beauty of this product. It reminds me of some beautiful undiscovered planet in the space.

Shade i own called `#4 goddess`, and I would describe it as antique bronze color with a shimmery frost finish. I like the fact that there is no dirty orange undertones in it and the finishing result looks very natural. Product also has a very light and pleasant scent and I'm such a fan of  nice smelling cosmetics! `Goddess` is well - pigmented, but the color is not too dark, which makes this product suitable for a fair skin tones. But if you are a fan of more dramatic contouring you can try to use this bronzer wet to get more intense color.

The Beauty UK Baked Bronzer is a very affordable product, retailing at just for £3.99 on the Beauty UK official website. But i'm sure that the whole baked box collection is worth checking out. It consists of two baked blushes, bronzer and highlighter - everything you need to create a summer looking , healthy glowing makeup.

Lots of love,

Sun Club Shimmer Bronzing Powder by Essence | Review

Happy Wednesday, dear ladies! Today I want to introduce you Bronzing Powder Sun Club by Essence, which is simply amazing. I used it for some time already, so today I can make an honest review of this product.

Bronzing powder by Essence is available in two shades - for blondes (lighter skin) and brunettes (darker skin). I bought shade 10 - sunkissed, for blondes, because I have a very light skin, even though I`m brunette. There is a very cute relief on a powder - girl in the waves or in the dessert with sand. Looks very beautiful, I even didn't want to touch it with my brush to don`t ruin the structure . Bronzer has a very silky formula, which includes lots of shimmer. Face skin looks luminous after I put this bronzer on my cheekbones. Essence bronzing powder has a very light vanilla scent.

The weak side of Sun Club bronzing powder is its pigmentation. It is not intense, almost transparent. So for girls with darker skin, or with skin which is easy tans, it will not work good. But, sure, depends what effect you want to achieve. I even think it is possible to use as a blush :) 

Lots of love,
Liz
