Essence Cosmetics Blush Play Review:

I am totally crushing on Essence Cosmetics New Blush Play Sculpting Palette ($5.99) glamour babes. This Palette lets you sculpt, define, and highlight your cheekbones effortlessly with three simple shades, and they all work together perfectly.

I purchased Play It Peach. I did want Play It Pink too, but it was sold out. Apparently girls really do love pink, and not just on Wednesdays either. Lol.

Play it Peach Palette has a beautiful corally pink color scheme.

The packaging is pretty straightforward. It’s a sturdy plastic compact with a clear window with black lettering defining the product (as shown above). I am okay with the design. I think its a good looking palette for $6. I bought it didn’t I? Lol.

The powder formula is lovely. It’s lightweight, buttery smooth, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blends out evenly, highly pigmented, buildable, compliments fair to medium skin tones, and the finishes of the blushes are different from one another.

Highlight is a pearlized finish.

Define is satin finish.

Sculpt is a matte finish.

I really like the individual finishes Essence’s Blush Play Palette offers. It gives cheekbones nice depth, making them look precise and sharp. You can also use the shades separately if you want for a softer, radiant appearance.

The color payoff is outstanding. I didn’t think my freshly colored contoured cheeks would last long, but they did-a full 8 hours. I definitely need to grab Play It Pink. I love this palette for every day wear. These are makeup must haves for me.

I haven’t seen the Blush Play Palettes in stores as of yet (did you?). If I do I will be sure to revise my post. They are available at, and shipping is free when you make a $15 purchase.

What do you think of Essence’s new sculpting and highlighter palettes?

Yay or nay?

Stay beautiful! Xo.


J.Cat Beauty You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter Review:

Guess what glamour babes?! I have more fantabulous highlighters for you to try, and they’re affordable!

Priced at $9 each, J. Cat Beauty’s You Glow Girl Baked Highlighters in White Goddess, Twilight, and Pink Goddess have been nothing but sensational in the glow department, and I am in awe of all three.
The multi dimensional baked formula brings instant glow all day long due to high intense shimmer pigments in each shade. It is designed to compliment all skin tones and skin types. The smooth texture blends effortlessly and gives the perfect luminous finish.

J.Cat couldn’t have described it any better when it comes to their glowing girls, and I have swatches as proof!

White Goddess is a pure white gold.
Twilight is gold toned.Pink Goddess is a rose gold.Whether you’re strobing or highlighting, and need a little assistance as to where you would apply these beautiful highlighters, look no further. Below is a How to Use Tutorial compliments of J.Cat Beauty. Thank you!The formula is lightweight, finely milled, has a velvety texture, making them comfortable to wear, easy to blend, and they are insanely pigmented with a micro fine metallic finish. I gradually build layers when using the You Glow Girl highlighters. I prefer having a more natural ethereal glow as I am getting older, which these can produce (Moi, wearing White Goddess). So, my suggestion to you would be to go with a light hand, and apply gracefully. These gorgeous gals sure know how to shine bright if you let them, wink.

Stay beautiful, xo.
