Make Up New In & House Of Stars

Revolution highlighter palette

Do you know the feeling when you find a well hidden gem, a place that has everything you have had your eyes on for a long time? Well it happened to me today.

On a casual stroll around the city I stumbled upon this store called House of Stars. They had the Kardashian Beauty logo on their window so I thought why not give it a try. Huge was my surprise when I noticed that they stock all the massive beauty brands that I have been obsessing over online.

Anastasia Beverly Hills, Bare Minerals, Sleek, NYX, Korres, Nip + Fab, Morphe, The Balm and more fantastic brands that I have been wanting to try but never got my hands on. I had to really control myself for the sake of my bank account, but I know I will be a regular customer already.

The prices for products are kept relatively low. The products are a bit more expensive than you would see on the official sites, but that’s understandable because of the shipping rates etc. I am just super glad that I can try the products out before buying them since it would be impossible when shopping online.

I left the heavenly place with 3 gorgeous items – the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade, Makeup Revolution blush palette and a Morphe blending brush.

I must add that this is not a sponsored post, I just loved the place so much that I had to let you guys know about this gem. Read more and shop online on their website here.

Oh my how much I love this place. ?

Makeup Revolution & Morphe


I am a huge fan of anything shimmer when it comes to make-up and when I saw this Makeup Revolution Blush palette, I couldn’t not get it. It is the Golden Sugar one and has the most amazing collection of merged blushers, baked bronzer and baked highlighters.

I have already fallen in love with the more purple like blush, which comes off beautifully when applied and gives your cheeks that pretty glow and a little of colour.

The matt nude colour is perfect for contouring and looks great on fair skin like mine. This palette is everything for me right now and don’t see myself using anything else for now. A must have!

Another thing I purchased was the Morphe E17 blending brush and oh boy it is amazing. I am really lacking eyeshadow brushes in my collection so this for me is a brilliant item and it blends eyeshadow just as great as it feels because of the softness of the bristles.

I can’t wait to go back to the store and get more of Morphe brushes. I have found my ideal make-up tools. Yay!

Anastasia Dipbrow pomade review

Anastasia Beverly Hills


Probably one of the most popular brow products out there – the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade. I got mine in dark brown as the sales assistant suggested would be best for my hair colour. There are so many different colours for these pomades so I highly recommend trying them out first before the purchase.

I have been really excited to try this product and get my brow game on point. Up till now I have been using powders for my eyebrows – the Elf one in particular and I have been loving it, but I am hoping that this pomade will give me a more natural look and proper shape.

Remember about the brush when getting the browdip! Anastasia recommends using their Brush #12 for perfect finish. Mine is on its way since I already ordered it online, but I believe that if you don’t feel like spending extra on the brush, any eyebrow angled brush will work.
