Highlights of the week


For the last two weeks, I haven't being wearing any blusher but instead wearing highlighter. I didn't think that it would make any difference to my makeup but I have been given a couple of compliments about how nice my makeup is. I think that this is due to my highlight ( as its only product different in my everyday makeup routine) so I thought that I would show you some of my most loved highlights. 

Nars Copacabana


I can not recommend this enough. It has a hint of pink and silver which works well with my peachy pink skin tone. It can be used all over the face , however, I only use it on the tops of my cheeks. I would call it a light highlight but you only need the tiniest amount because it is a liquid and highly pigmented. The price for this is £23 , this is the most expensive out of the three.

Rimmel Good to Glow- 003 Soho

There are three different highlights in the range but I have the shade . It's not as pigmented as the Nars but the formula and the idea that you only need the smallest amount, it's a dupe for it. I would say that my shade is more rose gold which is very different from my other highlights. If you were looking for a highlight for a bronze Makeup look , then this highlight would be perfect. It's a great drugstore alternative. 

Sleek Face Palette 

This is different from the Rimmel and the Nars because it is a powder highlight. It's apart of the palette and works well with the blush which also can be used as a highlight. The highlight has light cream and gold tones running through it. This is very light on the skin but is build able. It's not my favourite but I love it as a universal highlight as it also works well as a eyebrow highlight.

These are my highlight favourites which I have been loving recently. I do have other highlights however I don't really use them as much as these three. 

Let me know if you use highlighters and what ones you have been loving as I am always looking to try new products.

Melon Pop| Review


So when I found out that Clinique were releasing new lipsticks I was more than excited. I have been looking for a new brand to try for lipsticks and this was the perfect chance.

I have the shade Melon Pop 05. I thought I would review it as I know lots of people have been talking about the new release.

First Thoughts


I love the packaging- its simple which I like as it doesn't take away the beautiful colour. Also I love that it is square too as it fits perfectly in my lipstick holder.


I got mine for £16 which I think it ok for what it is. Personally, I was prepared to price a bit extra as I knew it was the right colour I wanted. But MUA ( which can be found in Superdrug) do a lipstick called Peachy Keen for £1 which is similar but is a matte rather than a sheen.


The colour is a peach-y , coral  colour which I have been looking for. Its a sheen but has amazing pigment.

First Impressions

True Colour?

Yes, I would say that its the colour which I thought it would be. I think it a great everyday shade but  its very buildable so can be made into a matte looking lipstick.


Like I have said previously, its a sheen which makes the colour have a shiny to it. I like this as I don't really own a sheer looking lipstick which I could wear everyday. I have been wearing it with day and night makeup so its a multi use lipstick. Oh and it looks great over Rimmel London East end Snob lip liner.

The rest of the range?

The Clinique team (not that I know them!) have done a great job with the colour choice , however, when looking for Melon Pop , I found out that they haven't released all the colours so I would double check if you can which ones are available. But I would be more than happy to buy additional shades after buying this one

Let me know if you want or have any of the colour pop range and what you think of it
