BEAUTY PIE. DECO MIAMI.

December 16th, 2016

Two brands I’ve just discovered.

It’s the holidays, and companies are sending me a ton of stuff. Honestly, I’m loving it, cause many are new to me and some products are just amazing.

I was not asked to share anything about these – brands just send out free stuff to internet people all the time – but I was playing around with two specific ones yesterday and was very impressed with their products, so I figured I would write about them!

(Also cause I haven’t been too active in here lately, and wanted to stop by).Β

These are the two packages I’ve received, one from Beauty Pie, and the other from a nail brand called Deco Miami.

I believe the first one offers a subscription service, and when the postman came with the parcel, he looked at me confused cause it was sent to “CutiePie” and he couldn’t understand how that could be my name – haha.

I picked out the products I was most interested in testing out, and I’m glad they came with a little book to read through so I could learn how to apply them. Most are your regular makeup items, but one in particular – that small jar – is a super creamy highlighter (which I didn’t figure out at first).

And so I created the makeup look you can see at the beginning of this post, left untouched so you would see coverage, shimmer, pigmentation and so on.

Just in case you are wondering, on my eyebrows I used the Archery Brow Kit by Soap&Glory; for eyeliner, the Supercat by Soap&Glory; and for eyeshadow, the Peach Palette by TooFaced.

Here are my notes, about each product I used:

  • Foundation: loved it! Somehow it matched my skin tone perfectly, and it feels light on the skin, but gave me pretty good coverage. I had some spots and redness, but I didn’t even use concealer as I felt like I was covering everything up pretty well already. Blends super easily.
  • Cream highlighter: this is intense! I picked up the product with my middle finger, and applied it to my cheekbones, and let me tell you – it made a difference!
  • Powder: this is a curious one. It’s white, with a bit of shimmer. It’s very solid, which is something I never noticed in compact powders before. I first applied it to my face with a brush, and couldn’t even tell if I was picking up product. There was no fallouts, no dust going around. So I touched it with my fingers and I realised I was picking it up, but as I said, it’s just very solid. I guess it’s a good thing, considering it felt like nothing on my face, whilst mattifying it, and will probably last longer cause there is no waste.
  • Compact highlight: unusual, cause it’s both light and brown together. I was sceptic, but decided to apply it on top of the creamy one and the effect was incredible. If you like a dewy look, this is for you!
  • Mascara: this is the only item I tried I didn’t really like. It took me a bunch of coats before I could notice a difference. It’s very natural, and the good thing is that it doesn’t clamp up, but it doesn’t really build up too much, so unless you really want something super natural, I wouldn’t recommend it.
  • Lipliner: I didn’t have any, or at least, none of the colours I actually wear, so getting a true red – now that I’ve properly started to wear it – is great, so that I don’t have to worry about the colour bleeding. It made the lipstick application super easy, and stayed on all night.
  • Lipstick: another great product. I love the true red colour, and it felt creamy whilst staying put all day and night.

Final notes: I applied this makeup in the early afternoon, and removed it at midnight. the foundation held up well, although it did crease on my smile lines and got a bit oily halfway through. It was an easy fix, as I just powdered it again after dinner, and I was set! The lipstick felt great on my lips, and not once it moved from where I placed it. I was dining with friends, and the only touch op I had to do was after, as it faded a bit, but overall, it left me very impressed.

To complete my look, I applied two nail polishes, a dark burgundy, and the top coat (which I also used as a base coat).

I can tell you that the application was pretty easy, especially because I was sent a little sharp tool which I’ve used to clean up the excess nail polish from my skin, if I made a mistake.

Really liking the colour, it’s looking very nice although last night I’ve been crafting – so that’s good! But I must say… what truly made me like these polishes, is the amazing packaging. πŸ˜‰

 

So this is all. Did I introduce you to something new, or where you already familiar with these brands?

Marzia.

    Wow! I’m definitely going to check out Beauty Pie. I’ve actually been looking into trying out new brands lately. Have you heard of Beauty Bakerie? They are a cruelty free brand that has AMAZING lip & eye products. And their packaging is adorable & dessert themed. πŸ™‚ I hope you have a wonderful day, Marzia!

    I love when you post here Marzia! Please keep it up because it’s really lovely that we can connect with you so much ❀ I really want to try out that foundation you mentioned. My skin is so red all year round and the fact that you didn't even need concealer sounds perfect! Also did you hear that the Sweet Peach palette is back on Too Faced's site? They have other cool peach products now too! ❀️
    Thank you again for posting here it always makes my day ✨
    Love Mew xx

    Thanks for the post! I want to try beauty pie now. In the future I would be interested in more posts about your art with Felix (your inspirations/style/how you choose ideas and colors). Another post I would be so interested in is about your dogs and how/where you got them where they got their names and pretty much anything else about them. Sorry if you’ve addressed this already somewhere else I just always wonder because they are so cute and I love reading about them and seeing them in your videos. I love all of your posts and videos though!

    Hi Marzia,

    I’d love to try out both of these brands, as what you’ve said about them makes them sounds amazing. Just one question, do you know if they are cruelty-free or not. I’m not hugely worried about vegan products, but I prefer to shop cruelty-free.

    Thank you,
    Ellie πŸ™‚

    Good afternoon, Marzia!

    I knew about Deco, but not Beauty Pie, though I think it’s a cute coincidence that their name is a bit similar to your old nickname :3 ! ( I do like Marzia better, it’s your name, your identity πŸ˜‰ )

    Thanks for posting ever now and then! Can I suggest a post / video idea? I’ve noticed that Maya has these cute outfits (i seen some when you made a looks video with her) but wouldn’t it be cute if you made a “looks” video just about her with her little cute outfits? I’d die of cuteness xD !! She’s so cuddly!!!!!

    Kisses from Portugal!

    Am I the only person that recognize Beauty Pie from tv series called Suits?? πŸ˜€ It appeared in one episode, the owner of this brand was complaining that she is not treated as serious as other clients of this huge law firm that this show is about πŸ˜€

    Castle Ravenloft can be a fun game for players that like cooperative games or desire to immerse themselves in a very high-fantasy adventure.
    The digital versions of games can also be generally cheaper
    as opposed to disc version. Cyberpowerpc wiki If this occurs, tell him that he
    needs to locate a place to avoid wasting, then shut the sport down and redirect him to another

    However, if you happen to be playing the game
