Best Highlighting Palette Ever?!

Hello!

It’s Lau. And recently, I bought the Sleek Soltice Highlighting Palette, it is apparently an amazing highlighting palette so today I want to test it.

I want to test the pigments, wear time and is it waterproof?

Without further or do, let’s test it out.

When I first opened this palette, my first impression was that is very beautiful. You can really see the glowy-ness of the highlighters in the pan.

They look so glowy and looks like it has a potential to be brilliant. So I did some swatches, and I had mixed views.

The golden shade looks the most disappointing, it hasn’t got much pigment and has no real glow factor to it, however the others are beautiful.

The purple one is my favourite, following closely behind with the champagne colour. There’s three powder highlights and one cream. The cream isn’t bad, it’s a little too dark for my skin colour but it’s still beautiful.

They wipe off a little too easily but they are beautiful on the face. From far away it is really great, and up close is just as good.

Now to put it to the waterproof test.

A few moments later.. it did well. It didn’t smudge or wear off.

And lastly, I wanted to see the wear time. So I approximately wore it for 6 hours, it did wear off but stayed on fairly well.

And that’s the end of the review. Thank you so much for reading.

And I will see you all soon.

Soph x Revolution Palette Review

Hello!

It’s Lau, and it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I do have an explanation for this, I haven’t had any internet since last Tuesday. I’m really sorry about that between this time, I have collected a few makeup products which I am excited about..one of them being the Soph x Revolution Palette.

The Soph x Revolution palette was created by a Youtuber called SophDoesNails and I have been watching her for a while, before she came out with this palette. She is part of the Revolution team, making frequent videos for the Makeup Revolution Youtube Channel.

And now onto the review;

I picked up this palette at Superdrug for £10, the colour selection is well put together.

And onto the quality of the shadows, the metallic shadows are very pigmented that you wouldn’t even need to use anything to make it more pigmented. The mattes are easy to blend and are also very pigmented, it is very fair to say this is my new favourite palette.

The mirror is big and very clear to see any imperfections which is a pro and con.

But overall, I love this palette and will be using it again.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed.

And I will see you all soon.

Blogger Interview #3: Honestly Lau

Check out this interview I did with Megan!

Megan Elizabeth.

This weekend’s blogger interview is taking a slightly different shape. I’ll be telling you a little bit of information about Honestly Lau, followed by a few quickfire questions answered by Lau.

So, Honestly Lau started in March 2018. Mostly a beauty blog with a touch of lifestyle, the blog gives Lau the chance to express her passions and challenge herself. I think these are 2 key aspects of blogging. In the case of Lau, the passion is beauty.

From applying fake lashes, to colourful eye looks, Lau’s makeup course at college is certainly worth it. I never know how to apply fake lashes, and I am too nervous to use them, but these clear steps make the process less scary!

Some of my favourite non-beauty posts on Honestly Lau include Photography Challenge and Reality of Blogging. Photography Challenge is all about how you can find great…

Reality Of Blogging

Hello!

It’s Lau. And today I want to just sit and talk about blogging. There are a lot of stereotypes of blogging, people say we only do it for free things however that’s only a perk of being a blogger but it’s not easy.

Being a blogger takes patience, committment and effort. There’s really no such thing as going viral with blogging, people discover you and they stick around. And we appriciate every person who does.

I have been blogging for almost 5 months and it’s not been easy. It’s taken a lot of effort to just come to wear I am now, and I don’t plan on giving up anytime soon.

We do this because we love it, those followers aren’t just numbers, they’re people and we know those people and we love those people. We support and care for eachother, it’s one of the nicest places to be. This community is one of the best places to be, it’s the best place to start.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed.

And I will see you soon.

Blogging Chat – WingedMamaHood

Hello!

It’s Lau. And today is another Blogging Chat, it is a series where me and another blogger talk about anything and everything and post it here.

Today’s guest is WingedMamaHood. She is a really cool blogger who blogs about her life as a mum and occasionally blogs about really helpful posts. Her links are at the bottom of the post.

Without further or do, let’s begin.

Me: How long have you been blogging for?

Joanne: Urm it’s coming up to 6 months now!

Me: So you started at the start of the year. Was it like a resolution?

Joanne: I guess so! I always wanted to start a blog but I never actually gave myself that last push to pluck up the courage. Well.. I did eventually because here I am!

Me: Which now you’re doing so well with your blog. And especially because you have two children to look after, it takes up a lot of time.

Joanne:Yes! I’ve started making money already which I am beyond grateful for. It’s extremely hard work trying to cram everything into what seems like a 3 hour long day but I’m making it happen💪🏼

Me: Are you on a website or do your own your website? I’m on WordPress I applied for WordAds (Where you get paid for blogging) And I still haven’t got accepted. It’s been months.

Joanne:I started on WordPress! I have recently moved to my own domain. I myself haven’t looked into WordAds but that may be something I’ll have a research about!

Me: I kind of think that WordAds isn’t really worth the waiting. How did you get started on your own domain?

Joanne: I went through the WordPress app itself! I think it’s siteground which I’m with now if I remember correctly.

Me: I’ll look into it. It’s very difficult to start earning money.

Joanne: I couldn’t agree more! The only paid work I’ve done so far is with brands. I’ve managed to earn myself over £100 in the last 2 day compared to £0 in the first 6 months. I guess it’s all hit and miss when it comes to blogging

Me: It is, brands want popular blogs with 1000’s followers that has DA of 40+. I haven’t got paid work with a brand yet.

Joanne: Yes you’re right indeed they do! Personally I don’t have the biggest social media following and I average at around 3k monthly views. Brands are still willing to work with you if you work out a plan between yourself and them.

Me: I’d be very up for that if a brand emailed me back. I apply for many opportunities everyday, i never really get a response back.
I have this one email saying if i want free traffic.

Joanne: Don’t give up! You could find that In a months time 15 opportunity’s come your way in a single week.

Me: That’s the dream, I’m going to keep doing what I do. It’s all so confusing the brand thing.

Joanne: It most definitely is.

Me: I think I will end this post here. Thank you so much.

Joanne:💗💗💗💗

Thank you so much to Joanne for doing this post, check out her links.
