Whenever I see a Kardashian-related make-up product (which is, like, each 5 seconds, amiright?), I remember that krazy dream I had a few months ago where Kim and I got into a kat fight about jewelry. HA HA HA! Yes, it was nuts. I consider that dream each time I put on the #BECCABFFs collection.
The #BECCABFFs assortment is new, LE and out there now with two powder palettes, a free highlighter and 4 lipsticks. It’s a collab between Khloe Kardashian and her bestie Malika Haqq, and though I’ve feeeeeeeelings in regards to the Kardashians…I suppose if there have been any of them I may remotely relate to, it might most likely be Khloe, as a result of she does have that biting humorousness. And I do know this as a result of I marathoned the primary two seasons of KUWTK whereas Connor was a new child and I used to be up in any respect hours feeding her.
BECCA’s vibe is usually seaside-babe-meets-Victoria’s-Secret-runway-mannequin, and they’re constant about it. They shamelessly embrace heat, bronzed, highlighted pores and skin and glowing lids and lips, and I like that sort of make-up, so it doesn’t get tedious for me, however I can see how they may seem to be a one-trick pony if it’s not your factor.
At first blush, #BECCABFF’s colours may appear similar to the colours from earlier collections like BECCA X Chrissy (THE BEST), however they are surely completely different. The 4 heat shades within the Made With Love By Malika Palette ($44), as an example, are deeper and darker variations of BECCA’s common basic bronze look, and the Made With Love By Khloe Palette (additionally $44), whereas nonetheless heat, has a surprisingly impartial matte bronzer in it that’s uncommon for a BECCA launch.
So, yeah, the variations are delicate, however they’re there.
The packaging’s a bit of clunky…however the powders themselves carry out like Olympic gymnasts. They’re typical BECCA multitaskers, too, so you possibly can put on them in your cheeks, eyes or, heck, throughout your face if you wish to!
See the marbling? Kinda appears just like the Hourglass Ambient blushes and bronzers, proper? You get that very same lighter-than-air high quality with these powders, the place you possibly can’t even see the grains in your pores and skin, however they differ when it comes to shimmer. The Ambients are identified for his or her subtlety, and delicate these aren’t. The #BECCABFFS flip up the pearl, so that you gotta lean into the glow if you wish to go there.
I’m cool with it as a result of the pearl particles are high quality, so my pores are like “Coo’, coo’… We can work with this.”
Of the four $24 lipsticks, I’ve solely worn the neutrals up to now (huge shock).
Few fast issues:
- They style and odor like brown sugar (it’s not in your face or sugary candy, although).
- On the components spectrum, they’re on the thick and dry facet, so the lippies tug a bit of once you apply them, however I feel that extends the wear and tear time. I get between three and 4 hours.
- I don’t have any points with them settling into lip traces, yay!
Last factor: The loose highlighter ($18) has off-the-charts shiny pearl and bronzed gold shimmer, and it’s not my factor, however should you like excessive-voltage highlights, look no additional.
If you’re so inclined, you’ll find the gathering now at Ulta and wherever BECCA merchandise are offered.
Rowing, rowing, rowing…
So…the fitness center I’m going to for HIIT lessons a pair nights every week simply bought these actually cool rowing machines which can be, properly, actually cool to me as a result of you possibly can transfer them round and retailer them upright, in order that they hardly take up any house, which I’m fascinated by for some cause…
Anyway, in my thoughts, I see myself as a competitive rower, however after I really get on a rowing machine, I’m all kinds of awkward.
Yeah…I don’t look something like these Olympic rowers after I do it.
Limbs are flying in every single place, and my butt is all the time *this shut* to falling off… I feel I’m doing a little issues proper, however I’m fairly certain I’m additionally doing a little issues mistaken, LOL. My HITT trainer advised us final evening that rowing is about 60% decrease physique energy and 40% higher physique, and the secret’s to remain upright, push exhausting together with your legs and pull exhausting together with your arms.
I attempted to do these issues final evening, however between making an attempt to focus on my method, and the strain of the 2-minute sprints we have been doing, it was only a sizzling mess. There have been a number of moments after I may’ve used a harness, as a result of I nearly fell off the seat!
Needless to say, should you row, or should you’ve rowed up to now and have any ideas for me, please cross them alongside, as a result of I may actually use your assist.
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
