It’s that Naked Heat Palette!

Phew, it seems like it has been a minute since I’ve posted something huh? I’ve been literally obsessed with this new Urban Decay Naked Heat Collection! The tones in the palette are seriously my kind of shades and perfect for the Fall season. The lip colors in this Naked Heat Collection are up my alley too.

Although I got this collection sent to me for consideration, I was not expecting to get this PR box at all. I get the smaller collections sent to me and most of the time it’s random and unexpected. Either way, I’m always so grateful when any brand sends me product to try so I can share my thoughts and sometimes share the products with you through a giveaway…

Here is my 1-minute video of how I achieved this makeup look. I’ve listed the products I’ve used further down in this post if you are curious!

Hello Autumn! Inspired Makeup Look



Autumn is officially here y’all!

Autumn, also known as fall, is one of my favorite seasons in the year. I love the colors of the leaves in fall and I love that it’s the transition into my other favorite season, winter! What fall means is that the holiday season is near and it’s all about family and gift-giving!

Here’s a look I did to welcome fall. I also listed the products I used to create this look too. Hope you all have a great start to this new season and be sure to take your vitamin C as allergies are in the air and flu season is upon us too.

Hey Beautiful!

Phew, I haven’t done one of these posts on my blog since 2012… Yes, I know it’s been awhile! If you’re following me on instagram (@brigetteramos) then you have probably seen that I posted this look and I told everyone to check out this blog post for the details. When I post looks on Instagram, I typically don’t like to take the entire comment section to explain what I’m using because it can be time consuming and be annoying for my followers.

I hope you enjoy this look and check below to see what products I’ve used on my face. Have a great day and let me know if you’d like me to post more looks on my blog. ♥

Benefit Rockateur Blush Review, Photos & Swatches


Benefit Rockateur Blush


Today I am reviewing the Benefit Rockateur Blush. This has got to be one of the first blush reviews I’m featuring on my blog. I think it’s time to take a little break from reviewing lip products so I’m bringing this one to you. This particular blush was gifted to me by my employer, Sephora. All of my thoughts and opinions are still my own and is NOT influenced by anyone but myself. See my review policy here for more details. Anywho, let’s get on with the review, photos and swatches shall we?!


WHAT IS IT? The Benefit Rockateur Blush is said to be a provocative rose gold cheek powder. This blush gives a famously provocative flush that turns heads on stage and off. The angled brush gives rich, show-stopping payoff every time. (source)

PRICE: $28.00 USD for 0.17oz/4.8g

AVAILABILITY: Available at Sephora, Ulta and retailers that carry Benefit Cosmetics.

PIGMENTATION: Before I go on about the pigmentation of this blush, I want to mention that I own several blushes from Benefit. With that said, I already expected this blush to be like the rest of the ones I own. This Benefit Rockateur Blush is pigmented just like the other blushes but doesn’t show up well on my skin tone. It’s just a nice flush of color on my cheeks when I wear it. Although it looks absolutely gorgeous on, this blush does show up better on lighter skin tones from my experience with them as a makeup artist.

You’ll see in the upcoming photos that the overspray of the rose gold isn’t consistent throughout the blush. The layer will disappear after a few uses…

TEXTURE: The texture of this blush is normal and is similar to the other Benefit blushes I own. There is also a texturized surface and design on the actual blush which makes this one very unique. If you’re wondering how the blush brush feels, I’m going to say it is as soft as it can be. Brushes that are similar are: the Becca The One Perfecting Brush, the MAC #168 Large Angled Contour Brush and the Sigma Beauty F40 Large Angled Contour Brush . The bristles are super soft and helps with blending the product beautifully on the cheeks.

APPLICATION: The application process is easy. You can wear this blush anyway you’d prefer and apply it with any blush brush. I’ve used the handy brush it comes with and two other blush brushes and they all work the same! I must mention that there is an iridescence to the blush and you can see it better in person than in my photos. I would also like to mention that this blush has a strong rose scent that I’ve noticed during the application process but the scent disappears within seconds. I can tolerate the scent only because it fades instantly but if it were to remain on my face, I wouldn’t be able to handle it. If you’re sensitive to fragrances or scents in your beauty products, I do recommend that you go to a retailer that carries Benefit and smell it for yourself before purchasing it.

PACKAGING: The packaging is so fancy and eye-catching just like all other Benefit blushes. If you’re familiar with Benefit blushes then you already know that all of their blushes are boxed and packaged the same way. Every single blush in the Benefit collection has its own character and sets the mood for any person who owns them. I have a huge fascination of the look of the boxes in my blush collection because they are perfect and you can tell the difference between each blush.

LASTING POWER: I personally don’t have a problem with blushes fading and not lasting on my cheeks so my initial thoughts about the lasting power of this stays neutral… If for some reason this particular blush did fade throughout the hours I’ve used them, I wouldn’t be afraid to mention it.
