Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray Review

Hey baes! You all love when I do makeup reviews, so here’s another one for you! I am reviewing the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, which I had my dad pick up for me in Sephora!

So far I love it, because it does exactly what it says on the bottle. It’s almost liquid gold in a bottle! My makeup literally does not move after I’ve sprayed it, making it great for going out or making sure your face lasts all day long.

Urban Decay Setting Spray KESSLEYNICOLE

Last weekend, I used it when I was doing my makeup for my dance summer show, and this is a prime example of how amazing this setting spray is. In the morning, at about 11 or 12, I put it on after doing my show makeup. Show makeup generally includes foundation, concealer, contour, highlight, blush, eyeshadow (with a wing and fake lashes) and lastly red lipstick. If I hadn’t put the Urban Decay setting spray on, I probably would have had to reapply most of my makeup, but because I used the Urban Decay setting spray, it lasted all the way from lunchtime to around 8:30 almost 9:00 in the evening even with all of the sweating and perspiration that comes along with dancing in a show.

My only criticism would be the smell of the product. It might just be me, but I find that the spray reeks of the chemicals in it. I know it’s not an ‘all natural’ product and I don’t expect it to be, but it does just smell a little when used. The scent isn’t too noticeable, but it is still present.

Other than that, I would definetly rate the product about a 4.5 (out of 5) and recommend to a friend. It’s definetly one that I’ll keep using, and I will probably replace it when it runs out! What’s your favorite setting spray? Have you tried the Urban Decay setting spray? Let me know down in the comments!

Hope you enjoyed my review!

Love ya,

Sephora Haul in Less Than $100! Here’s What I Got!

Hey everyone! As you can see, I have gone wild in Sephora again, except this time, I decided to do a haul for you all! In total, I got 5 items, all of which I am so excited to share with you! So here’s what I got!

untitled-design-211.png

  • Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack:
    Untitled design-19 As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I love Too Cool For School face masks! They’re just great quality and do wonders for my skin! This one is an enzyme peel, but it’s mainly for acne. I love it because it is much easier than other types of masks. With this one, I can just throw some on (to exfoliated skin) and hop it bed instead of having to go through the process of say clay masks where it has to be washed off after 15 minutes. Not to mention it smells amazing! untitled-design-18.png
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder: Honestly,
    Untitled design-15I didn’t know how to use this product when I put it in my Sephora basket. A friend of mine (who happens to be a MUA) loves it and so I decided that since I needed setting powder, that I might as well purchase this one. Also, I was looking for a good quality setting powder that comes in darker shades, because if I was to buy a setting powder in a lighter shade, it would easily show up in photos. But in terms of the product itself, it works really well and when I use it to bake, my concealer lasts all day. Untitled design-16
  • untitled-design-9.pngMake Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder: So I haven’t really used this product much! Partly because it is so tiny, and the other part because it is not my color for setting powder. I am really glad that I ended up getting a sample size, because generally, I would say that I prefer the Laura Mercier setting powder. You can get it in other colors, but still I prefer the Laura Mercier powder.

Untitled design-10

  • Too Faced Melted Latex Liquid Lipstick: Okay so I am in love
    untitled-design-13.png with this liquid lipstick and coming from someone who tends to stay away from liquid lipsticks (I find them messy and they make my lips feel dry) , that’s a lot. I bought this one for two reasons, one being because it was on sale and two because it was this bright red which is perfect for dance. It was one of the best Sephora purchases I have ever made! The consistency is a bit sticky, but on the other hand, it stays on for ages! We had our summer show this past weekend, and all I needed was one or two applications to last the whole day. How amazing is that? untitled-design-11.png
  • Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb: Untitled design-8Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with Fenty Beauty,
    so naturally, the Gloss Bomb came next. I will point out that I received a mini Gloss Bomb in a set that I received for my birthday and I LOVE IT! So I had no choice but to buy the full size and quickly, because my mini is running out from all the use! Definetly well worth the price 🙂 Untitled design-6

So! Was the $93.60 worth it? Yes. Would I order again? Yes! I hope you enjoyed my Sephora Haul!

Love ya!

Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio Review

Hi all! You all asked for another beauty review and you got it! Now I’m actually on spring break and so I’ve decided to write you lot a few more posts (and maybe some more reviews) so stay tuned over the next two weeks!

Today I’m gonna talk about the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio (following on from my Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation/primer review-read here.)

So far, I am quite fond of the brand and one of my favourite parts of the collection is the packaging. The millennial pink is just gorgeous and I love it. Also, the Match Stix are magnetic, so they all stick together. That’s great for me, because (A) I love playing with them and (B) they all stick together in my makeup bag and because I use them in order (conceal, contour then highlight) it works out really well that I am not fishing through my bag for individual pieces.

The formula of the conceal and the contour sticks is quite thick (which is expected with a cream product), and the shape of the actual sticks makes them easy to use. That’s especially great when you’re a beginner. When I actually got the sticks I didn’t quite know how to use them, but I watched this YouTube tutorial which explained it for me. The product doesn’t smudge easily and depending on the method you use to blend them it might be difficult, but they blend just fine with a wet (or should I say “damp”) blending sponge.

Screenshot 2018-04-02 17.58.33

As to the highlight stick- it is so pigmented! There is so much packed into one little stick and it’s amazing. I have the highlight “Rum”, and it’s a rose gold/coppery color which is perfect for my skin tone.

I bought mine in a trio set, which costed a bit more than $58 in Sephora. To me-all most high-end makeup is overpriced, so I won’t comment on the price tag. But I will say that individually the sticks cost about $25 each. So to get three for $58 is almost like getting one for about $8.

In relation to purchasing them in a set, I’m not sure how I feel. The issue with buying them in a set of three is that you may or may not be able to pick which ones go in your set. It worked out really well for me, that was because all of the colors worked for me. But if you’re not sure, I would probably recommend buying the ones you want individually.

All in all, I would definetly recommend the Match Stix to you. I am quite pleased with all three of the Fenty Match Stix that I have! I hope you enjoyed this post!

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation Review

Hey lovelies! Welcome back to Kessley Nicole! Today I will be reviewing the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Yes, I know it’s a bit late, but I’ve been eyeing this product for a while, and finally got color matched and bought one at a Sephora in France. So I’ve decided to review it!

 

For starters I love the packaging! I love the packaging of the whole line so far! (I should probably note that I also have a few other pieces from the collection: the primer, three of the Match Stix (Conceal, Contour and a Highlight),  the Stunna Lip Paint, the Gloss Bomb Lip Gloss and a mini Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter-If you all want me to, I’m happy to do a review on the collection as a whole). One thing I will mention however is that the bottle is made from frosted glass (or very hard plastic-I’m not sure) and it makes the color appear lighter than it actually is.

I started by applying the primer to the whole of my face and neck area. The primer has a bit of a sticky or tacky consistency, which I didn’t mind. I love the smell and the color. It has this blush pink color which is throughout the packaging and themes of the collection. So far I quite like the primer.

As for the foundation itself, I started by putting a bit of it on my hand. The consistency of the product is slightly liquidy, which made it difficult to apply as it also dried quickly. I found it easier to blend with my blending sponge than with a brush, which is fine, but it did take me a minute or so to realize this.

The color however did catch me off guard. When I first was color matched in Sephora, I wasn’t really sure if the color was correct, and there were a lot of colors missing (tester bottles). So while I couldn’t see a clear difference between the color that I bought and my natural skin tone in the actual store, when I got home and put a bit on my hand-it looked like I had tanned in a matter of seconds. It’s not a noticeable color difference though-it’s just something to watch out for when buying makeup generally (especially foundations).

I do quite like the finish of my skin when the foundation is on. Depending on how many layers you apply, it can either be medium or heavy coverage. I did try again to apply the foundation, but instead I put a few droplets of the foundation onto my foundation brush and then applied it to my face. This method worked much better and I got so much more even coverage. The color is still off, but it isn’t necessarily noticeable and it can always be lightened with either a bit of moisturizer or a lot of powder.

So on the whole, I do like this product! I would recommend that you do buy the correct color (there are so many to choose from, which is just frankly amazing) and I would definetly buy again (which I do plan to do: just in the correct color)

What do you think? Have you purchased any of the Fenty Collection yet?

Kessley Nicole 2018 Relaunch: Lipstick 101 with Kess

As someone who doesn’t wear lipsticks a lot, I own way more than I should! On the other hand, when I do find a good lipstick that I like, I am way too quick to purchase it (even if I go home and find out that it is too bold to wear on a daily basis). So here’s a peek into my lipstick collection! All products mentioned are linked down below.

Screenshot 2018-02-15 23.10.20

So the first one is actually from Avon. It is their Ultra Colour Rich Mousse Lipstick in the colour D052. It’s a really nice consistency and the colour is a nice pale nude, that works wonderfully on my skin tone. It’s a bit glossy, but it’s perfect for everyday wear.

My second lipstick is the Kiko Milano Metal Lipstick in #9. I love red lipsticks-they’re so bold and this one is a perfect example of that. I normally wear this one for dance, as there are small bits of glitter in the formula, making wearing it a bit uncomfortable and removing it quite difficult. I do love how pigmented it is and the price. I paid a little over £3 (maybe £4) for this lipstick.

Next up is another Kiko Milano lipstick. This one is the Smart Fusion Lipstick in #431. The Smart Fusion Lipstick is one of my favourites off this list because the formula is just perfect. It is so soft and slightly glossy and easy to remove. I love this colour, because it’s a bit dark but still light enough that I can wear it when I’m out with my family. Again, I love the price, I paid a little less than £4 for this one and yet it’s still one of my favourites!

I’ve actually decided to include two of my favourite liquid lipsticks (because they’re still lipsticks).

So for the first of the liquid lipsticks, I have this one from smashbox. This is the Always On Liquid Lipstick. I know it’s a tester size, and because I love it so much I’ve decided to include it in my order to Sephora. I love this lipstick because it doesn’t dry out your lips and lasts all day. The colour I have is Driver’s Seat. While the colour isn’t ideal on my skin tone, it may work for others, and the formula is still one of my favourites!

Lastly and probably my favourite lipstick in my collection is the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Colour. There is only one colour in which the Stunna Lip Paint is available in and that is Uncensored, which is a universal red colour. First of all, I love this liquid lipstick because it is so pigmented and the colour is just perfect. One swipe and you’re good to go. The wand of it is a bit different to the usual wand shape for a liquid lipstick but it works really well considering the liquidy consistency of the product. When I wear it, I find that it does not go everywhere or make that big of a mess so that is also a plus.

What are your favourite lipsticks/liquid lipsticks? Any brands that you rely on for those types of products? Let me know down in the comments!

Love ya,

Kess

Kessley Nicole 2018 Relaunch: My Pamper Night Essentials

Hi guys! What do you think of the relaunch so far?

School has been stressful lately (you know GCSE’s and all), and I’ve recently found myself needing to relax more frequently! My favorite time for a pamper night is on Friday nights when I get home from dance or on Sunday evenings before I go to bed, What are your favorite pamper night products? Let me know in the comments! Here are my pamper night essentials!

  1. Too Cool for School Face Masks: I love paper masks! And so for Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a set of Too Cool for School Face Masks! Each mask has its own specific use, so it depends on the day for which one I’ll use. But generally, they’re great for all my skin needs, especially at my age!

  2. Atlanta Bath Co. Foaming Sugar Scrub (Pumpkin Spice/Blueberry Lemonade): My mom turned me onto Atlanta Bath Co. when she bought me their Cotton Candy Bath Truffles, and I love them. My mom also bought two of their foaming sugar scrubs, which I use all the time. They smell amazing and they leave your skin feeling super soft.                                my pamper night essentials final photos 2
  3. A Lush Bath Bomb: No pamper night is complete without a bath bomb! My favorite one so far is the Snow Fairy! Unfortunately, it is only available at Christmas so and I was lucky enough to receive one for Christmas so I’ve saved it to use on my birthday!my pamper night essentials final photos 8
  4. Stress Relief Candle: I think I have already raved about my love of the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy collection, but this candle is amazing! I don’t ever actually burn the candle-I’m not allowed to, but I do love to smell it every once in a while-LOL. my pamper night essentials final photos 9
  5. Atlanta Bath Co. Cupcake Lip Scrub: In actuality, it’s my moms, but I still love it! It smells so good and leaves my lips so soft! It’s very similar to the foaming sugar scrub, except it’s for your lips! my pamper night essentials final photos 7
  6. Sephora Lip Masks I love Sephora masks period. My favorite lip mask is the rose one, and it goes perfectly with their rose paper mask. Definitely one of my favorites! Screenshot 2018-01-20 22.29.44
