The Beautylish Gift Card Event has started and will run until Sunday 27th of March, 2022 at 11:59 pm PT, it means that for every $100 USD spent, you will receive a $20 USD gift card for your future purchase.
There are amazing brands on Beautylish, Wayne Goss, Surratt, Natasha Denona, Koh Gen Do, Tom Ford, Rae Morris and so many more! They recently also added Chantecaille and Hindash, this is just so good!
I just wanted to let you know that this event was now ongoing, just in case you had something in your wishlist… I purchased the new collection from Hindash during this event and I will likely add some items and brushes before the event finishes.
I have placed a few orders recently, I have also received some PR items that I am so happy to have incorporated in my daily routine! I will share just a few recommendations today and also share some thoughts about some of the brushes that are currently available on Beautylish, just in case you were thinking about getting some Fude.
I recently bought the Pastel Palette from Denona, what a gorgeous palette!! Pastels with oomph and elegance combined, I gasped everytime I swatched a shadow 🙂 This palette makes me happy, it allows me to wear a pastel look that looks elegant and fresh, and age appropriate.
I know this is a pastel palette but I intend to wear this palette all year round. If you know Suqqu, or other Japanese brands, they often add a pastel shade in their quads (whatever the season of the collection). Looking at this palette I see so many possibilities, pairing these beautiful shades with other neutral or darker shades or just wear a one shadow look with mascara and a little liner.
For me, this is a winner that I can enjoy on a regular basis. I have had other pastel palettes but I always found that such sheer shades didn’t last long or that they didn’t look appropriate on me, I tried these, they stay and they look great on my 50+ lids!
I also purchased the Giraffe Eye Quartet by Chantecaille. Four shades, with a very unexpected shimmery shade in this quartet, quite unlike Chantecaille, with a more chunky glittery feel than what she usually does, it’s different and stunning. Also, the packaging is beautiful, the price not quite, it is very much on the highest scale we can find in this category, but still couldn’t resist. I have purchased it full price with no reductions as I did not want to miss on it. If you were thinking of getting it and have the opportunity to do so during a gift card event, then this may be great!
The Chantecaille Lip Chic in Jasmine that comes in this Giraffe collection is my new go to at the moment, it’s quite a light shade, adds just a little bit of a nude peach color but it tones down the pink on my lips without washing me out and looks fresh and healthy. It’s just what I wanted so I am happy with it. The other shades from this Giraffe collection have a little more of a base color but Jasmine is exactly what I was going for, just a hint of color with shine and comfort.
Beautylish sent me the newest Wayne Goss blushes Sweet Wildflower and Desert Blossom, these are now my favorite blushes for everyday wear! I know they will last me a long time but how I am itching to buy a backup of each!! They are on the lighter side but they have very good color payoff. I really need to do a separate review on them.
The two latest lipsticks Iris and Poppy are also such beautiful elegant shades, they take any make-up look to another level. If you are like me and don’t like to wear a dark lipstick, these shades are dark enough to show that you are wearing a bold lip but they won’t steal the show or make you feel uncomfortable, unlike many bold colors may do. They make a statement without stealing the show, this is the “Wayne” way, I couldn’t imagine shades that better fit his phylosophy. Well done Wayne!
Beautylish just launched the Hindash newest palette “Monochromance“, I bought it as soon as it launched, I don’t have it yet here. I have the first one he released and I am loving it! If you wanted more from Hindash, his new collection is available!
Beautylish carries a lot of Fude (Japanese handmade brushes), including my own 🙂
I am not going to recommend a specific brush but I will just share some information on what brushes it might be good to “invest” in at the moment, just in case you had them on your mind.
If you are a Fude lover, you probably already know that natural brushes are decreasing in availability and increasing in price. This is the way it will continue, there is more demand and the cost of the materials is increasing, not only the bristles but also the ferrules and the wood. I work with several manufacturers and different providers for my own brushes, I see this happening as I develop new brushes and I get the quotes, and also as I restock the current collections, the prices of the materials keep going up and I think this impacts everybody.
Canadian/blue or grey squirrel, these are the most expensive to obtain and we may see some brushes not available anymore in the near future.
Natural longer bristles will be extremely difficult to get and the cost will be so expensive, so I would recommend that you prioritize natural brushes with longer bristles for example, should this be something that is on your wishlist because my very first recommendation is not to get every brush, but to get the brushes that you truly love, and that you will use!
There is quite a great selection of Fude on the Beautylish website at the moment, you have Surratt, Chikuhodo, Koyudo, Wayne Goss, Beautylish Presents, just to mention a few. These brushes are phenomenal -not only these ones but I wanted to gather just a few that I think have a wonderful value (considering the costs), with outstanding performance, and that are currently available.
What will you get? Do you have any Fude purchases planned?
I hope you do and that you get items that you will use and love!!
