Product Empties: April

Hello beauties,

Another month, another round of empties. This month’s a bit different as I started off by clearing out some old and unloved items from my beauty collection. Below is a stack of lip products that I’ve decided to throw away as I don’t use them. Not a negative, some are really good but I just don’t use them.

Wella SP Colour Save Conditioner

I’ve repurchased this conditioner multiple times, not because I think its amazing but because my hairdresser recommended it. Don’t think its anything special and will try something new.

Sephora Argan Hand Mask*

The packaging of the hand mask is amazing! No leakage and easy to use. I found that it did hydrate my hands but at the same time wasn’t anything special. Might try again before my wedding…

Estee Lauder DayWear BB Cream

One of the best BB Creams I’ve ever tried but its a tad light so its time to bin it. Really good coverage and lasts well on oily skin. I got my girlfriend hooked on it and she swears by it as her every day foundation.

Makeup of the Day: Highend Work Makeup

Hello beauties,

Last week I bought to you a drugstore work makeup look, and today it’s all about highend makeup! It’s also a bit of a first impressions as I tried out a lot of new products in this makeup look.

1. IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination- Rich 

For this look I didn’t apply a primer first, however I typically use Benefit Porefessional. To apply the CC Cream I use a damp beauty blender to push the product in. Full review coming at the end of the week.

2. Cover FX Cover Click-N30*

I didn’t expect much from this, but OMG I’m in love with it. I used this as a concealer under my eyes to highlight and cover dark circles. I found the concealer to be surprisingly creamy but still set nicely.

3. Benefit Brow Zing- Medium

4. NARS Bronzer- Casino

5. Hourglass Ambient Blush-Radiant Magenta 

6. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish- Soft and Gentle

7. IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials*

For the eyes, I started off by applying the shade Passion all over the lid. In the crease I applied Intrigue and brought it down to the lash line in a V motion. I also used the remaining product on my lower lash line and smoked it out quite a bit. For some added definition I applied the shade Allure to my top last line using an angled brush. Allure is an interesting shade, it’s a dark matte navy blue however looks almost black on the eyes.

To finish off the eyes I applied the IT Cosmetics Super Hero* mascara, which was surprisingly good. The tip with this mascara is to make sure to apply most of it at the roots of the lashes.

Brows Brows Brows

Hello beauties,

I think it’s fair to say Cara Delevingne brought back the bold brows! Today I bring to you my brow collection, what works and what doesn’t work… Disclaimer alert, I’ve been blessed with naturally bushy brows so I don’t need to do much with my brows.

Benefit Brow Zing- Dark

My first dabble into brow products and it’s still going strong (about 4 years later). The great thing about the Benefit Brow Zing is, it comes with a waxy side and brow powder. You would start by applying the wax as a base so that the powder can stick onto it. By using a brow powder you can easily build up your brows from natural to fierce.
