Kaja Beauty Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush Review + Swatches

 

Kaja Beauty Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blushes

 

Hello! Remember when I reviewed the Kaja beauty goodies I tested a few months ago? If you have not read it yet, please check it out HERE. As you can see and remember, I really enjoyed and was totally impressed by the Kaja products I’ve tried. Their packaging looks fun, and their products are also very fun to use. But the fun doesn’t stop there. The quality of their products is also very good and high-performing.ย 

 

Kaja Beauty Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush review

 

So, for this review, I’ll be showing you some of the shades of their Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush (0.17 oz: 24 USD). This blush and its eye-catching design of the packaging is probably the cutest, most different, and most unique blusher I’ve ever tried. It comes in two parts: The upper part contains the heart-shaped applicator and the bottom part contains the saturated sponge of a certain color. You have to twist the upper part to reveal the heart applicator and pop open the bottom compact in order to dip/press the heart applicator to the sponge. Then stamp the applicator to your cheeks and blend. It has the same concept as most cushion foundations.

This cushiony blush formula feels creamy and light. The shades can be easily blended from being sheer (stamp once) to more drama (stamp twice or more). The overall effect is very natural on the face, and it can be blended by just using the fingers. It also doesn’t move any foundation/makeup, and it lasts the whole day. I also love the amazing scent that the blush has because it’s really delightful. Also, it’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

If you’re looking for beautiful, good quality blushes that are quick and easy to use, and with amazing lasting power, then I highly recommend these.

 

*Lots of thanks to Kaja Beauty (Sephora) for sending me the Coy and Bossy shades.

FabFitFun Winter 2019 Box

Vera Mona Color Switch Solo

 

One of the things I look forward to during the Winter is to receive my FabFitFun Winter Box. This season, there are several items that are really interesting and are really useful for me and for you guys as well. Also, this season’s box is really pretty and as always very well-designed. So let’s take a look at what I got this time.

 

R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo+Conditioner review

 

R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo+Conditioner (64 USD) – This haircare is really good and it smells nice. The scent and quality overall reminded me of Alterna haircare. This is my first time trying this brand and it’s really good so far. I love that this shampoo lathers easily and you don’t need to use a lot. This duo softens my hair, and it adds shine and volume without weighing it down.

 

Ban.do Bluetooth Shower Speaker

 

Ban.do Bluetooth Shower Speaker (30 USD) – This is probably the most fun item in this season’s FFF box. This speaker looks so cute, it’s water-resistant, and it has a nice sound quality. Its suction holds well and it’s very easy to pair with your device. It makes showering really fun.

 

Paper Source 12 Month Rose Floral Planner (27.95 USD) – I love this planner because it’s really light, and it has monthly and weekend views, plus it has ample space for me to write. On top of that, it doesn’t look very cluttered, unlike some planners.

 

Makeup Eraser in Original Pink (20 USD) – I was skeptical about this at first, but this super soft towel really works to remove all sorts of makeup. It saves cotton pads, so it’s overall very economical to use, and also very easy to clean.

 

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler

 

Vera Mona Color Switch Solo (16.99 USD) – I’ve always wanted to have a product like this so I could clean my brush instantly, and be able to switch from one makeup shade to another without rinsing or wiping my brush with a wet cloth or wipes. This really saves me time and so far, it hasn’t pulled any strand out of my brushes.

 

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler (23 USD) – This bottle looks so pretty and it truly detangles the hair easily, making it more manageable to brush. This also protects the hair from heat styling for up to 450 ยฐ F. The only beef I have with this is that the scent can be too strong.

 

Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops

 

Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops (55 USD) – This is another one of my faves from this season’s box. I love the gorgeous bottle of this and its very pretty pinkish glow. This smells really nice (fruity) and it gives a subtle glow on the face. This can be used as a primer or can be mixed with your favorite foundation. This also reminds me of those Farsรกli products.

 

Inc. Redible NailsInc Thirsty Hand Mask Duo

 

Inc. Redible NailsInc Thirsty Hand Mask Duo (16 USD) – This hand mask feels really incredible on the hands since it’s very softening. It smells like pine and something else that awaken the senses. This has the same scent as the Sephora Mud Mask which I love. To use: you just have to put this on like gloves, and you can still do other things while using this, like doing chores, type on your phone, etc.

 

Overall, this Winter’s FFF box is definitely one of my faves so far. I love all the products I got.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Quad Ghost Palette Review + Swatch

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Quad Ghost Palette review

 

Just when I thought my blush collection was complete, enter the holiday-released Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Quad Ghost Palette (58 USD) and my heart started racing to 200 bpm, lol. Yes, that’s how excited I was the very first time I saw this gorgeous palette.

 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Quad Ghost

 

Hourglass Cosmetics released their Ghost Collection last holiday (2019), which included the new Ambient Lighting Edit Ghost Face Palette (80 USD) and this new Blush Quad Ghost. Of the two palettes, I was more drawn to this beautiful quad of blushes because each of the shades looks pretty not only upon first glance but also upon swatching them on my arms. The Ghost Full-Face Palette didn’t appeal to me much because I already have and still use the previous Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3 (reviewed HERE) which I adore. I try not to use it as much because it’s so pretty. Also, the nice thing about Hourglass products is that they’re really well-pigmented that you don’t need to use up as much color on the face, and even if you’ve used them several times, they still look good as new. Additionally, the packaging of their palettes is so luxurious and so elegant. The Ghost palettes are in a silver mirror-like compact with a translucent plastic packaging.

The shades of this quad blush are what Hourglass calls “hybrid” because they’re a mix of a highlighter shade and a vivid shade that seem to create a customized, unique, multidimensional, and soft-focus tone on the skin, in order to naturally enhance the curves of our cheekbones.

 

Three of the shades in this quad are new.

1 – Surreal Effect (new, light pink blush)

2 – Brilliant Nude (more like a highlighter)

3 – Lucid Glow (new, medium coral blush)

4 – Infinite Flush (new, medium-pink/somewhat plum blush)

 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Quad Ghost Palette

I really love the radiant finish of each shade in this Hourglass Ambient Lighting Ghost Blush Quad. They don’t look flat because they’re hybrid shades which really add depth and dimension to the cheeks. I also love that they’re all buildable and that they’re made of clean ingredients. Also, the whole product is cruelty-free. Just a few things that I seem to notice is how minimalist and sleek the compact looks, but it tends to attract fingerprints and lint. Also, the bottom of the compact is translucent yet it feels quite plasticky, which I’m not used to since most Hourglass palettes/compacts are metallic, shiny, and super luxe. However, the quality of each blush shade remains superior.

 

ย Do you have this in your collection? What are your favorite Hourglass products?
