Hello World! Easter Monday is the best Monday and its time to break out a Monday must have post. This time featuring favourite drugstore brand and owner of the infamous”Maybe shes’s born with it , maybe its Maybelinne” tagline.
I received The Burgundy Bar from a very kind friend and thought I would practise my cut crease.
This palette is the perfect Autumn palette. With 12 shades which ranges from ultra matte to champaigne metallic shades. I found the shades pigmented with little fallout. I like to use my setting spray with metallic shades to create a more intense and pigmented look and once again it didn’t let me down.When applying the product it went on smooth and I found it blendable.
While doing the cut crease the lightest shade in the palette set the concealer I used, perfectly. I was super impressed by this as I have tried other lighter shades in other palettes before and did not get the result I wanted.
What I have found is that I need to cut my crease much higher as I have hooded eyes.
I recommend this product if you are looking for a palette that’s easy to work with. When it comes to pricing it’s not the cheapest palette for a drug store brand, retailing at R260.00 \21 USD\ 15 GPB but the colours & quality more than make up for it.
Happy Easter Monday all. Let me know if this is a yay or nay for you. With all my love.
Hello World! It’s my favorite time of the week, Monday and time to Break out a Monday Must Have post.
Earlier this year I attended the Beauty Swop or Sale Beauty Expo & picked up my first Colourpop purchase. I’ve heard so many amazing things about this brand , besides being affordable the make-up quality is top-notch & I was quite excited to try it out.
I picked up the Super shocked cheek highlighter in Wisp and the Ultra metallic lip in the shade Maneater.
I picked out these colours because I wanted a golden glow for an upcoming holiday,I was not disappointed. These items were purchased at sale prices from Samika Store , a vendor at the beauty expo. Samika Store is an online retailer who stocks authentic international brands. The highlighter was purchased for R 180/9.6GBP/ 12.66 USD and the lipstick was R175/9.4GBP/12.03USD.
What are your favourite Colour Pop purchases beauties, please share them below as I think this might become one of my favourite brands. As always thank you for reading , with all my love F xx
Hello World. Its Monday and I’m back with another must have item. Who doesn’t love big lashes or a great drugstore brand. Well this product ticks both of those boxes. I have purchased most of the mascara’s from the Essence brand but nothing impressed me as much as the “Big Lashes” range. I’m not a fan of falsies (only because I struggle applying it) but do love a good extension, with this mascara I feel I don’t need either .
Description taken from Essence Website: “The fibers of the football-like mega brush even reach the tiniest lashes and cover each individual lash without causing them to stick or feel heavy. the easy application ensures a breathtaking look in an instant! opthalmologically tested.”
I recently just ran out of eyeliner & found this together with an angled brush, to be a good substitute to create my winged liner. A two in one product, I couldn’t ask for more.
As always thank you for reading. Let me know what you think about this mascara beauties xx
