Guest Post: smooth Solstice combination – rough condition evaluation

Today we have something different on the blog – a guest publish by Joyce of regional woman foreign Land! Her blog is mostly about travel, with smattering of lifestyle and snack membership boxes. Back in July, we got chatting about the possibility of doing a cross-over type of post, whereby she examined a makeup product on my blog, as well as I publish about a travel destination on her blog. as well as right here we are! Here’s Joyce, in her own words:

Sleek Solstice combination – rough condition Review

The colours are gorgeous as well as beam like there is no tomorrow. All 4 are metallic highlighters.

Ecliptic – champagne (cream), brow bone & cupid’s bow friendly, finger application is the very best friend, simple to blend

Hemisphere – purple/lilac (baked powder), extremely pigmented, difficult core mirror-like metallic surface & not simple to blend, utilize with caution, animal hair clean recommended

Subsolar – yellow (feels like pressed powder), fine however bright metallic finish

Equinox – orange (baked powder), a extremely lovely soft highlighter *Sleek suggested this for cupid’s bow. If you do utilize this for cupid’s bow, re-apply is needed after drinks / food.

From a NC25 perspective, the most ‘daily’ comprise friendly colour is Ecliptic as well as Equinox. Hemisphere is method as well bright. It is gorgeous for instagram or picture shoot, however for routine daily it is as well much? Subsolar has a a lot more powdery surface than the other 2 powders. It is still creamy, however feels a lot more dry than the other 2. I hope that makes sense.

Below is a buddy who kindly modeled for the publish On her cheek was Hemisphere… This was WITHOUT flash as well as WITHOUT any type of special lighting.

This is not me!! I have severe freckles. I believed it would be much better to demo the colour on a younger deal with than me haha.

Secure metallic closure with a satisfying sound.

Golden plastic that attracts finger prints.

Fully mirrored lid

Rubbish complementary clean ==> directly to the trash is recommended
