False Eyelashes | Ebay | #228 | Review w/ Photos !



HEY DOLLS !
If you've been following my blog, 
you'd know how much I love false eyelashes.
I have another false-lash review today 
They're #228 and I got them from an ebay seller called special-match (LINK HERE)


ABOUT THE PRODUCT

They're so nice and soft, the wand is clear and  is flexible, 
and they're not too dramatic and they're perfect for smokey eyes. 

I cut them in half and used them as half-strips in this look below:





 And used them here as full strips -









BOTTOM LINE
I personally love them,
and I truly do like these lot!

Anyway, that concludes this review , 
I hope you find this helpful and let me know what you think guys!

MUA NEW Matte Perfect Loose Powder | Review w/ Swatches !



HEY DOLLS !
This is another one of the relatively new products from MUA.
It was quite luring considering it claimed it was translucent 
and it controls shine.
But did it deliver?



 

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

It's a loose powder and it comes in huge packaging with a lot of product.
The powder is indeed translucent
but it is not finely milled.
I do not find it sets my makeup at all.
It does not deliver the matte finish it promises and
it barely does anything to my skin.



BOTTOM LINE

I don't like this powder one bit.
It doesn't do anything it promises,
but I wish it did -
it seems like a good product, but it's not.

That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

NIVEA Daily Essentials Fragrance-free Facial Cleansing Wipes | Review!



 HEY DOLLS!
I often just buy baby wipes to remove my face makeup but every now and then I decide to get me some proper wipes to see if they work better.


ABOUT THE PRODUCT

They remove makeup quite effectively - except for waterproof mascaras and liners.
They are quite big as wipes, but they are too dry in my opinion.
My baby wipes do a fine better job at a cheaper price.
They don't have a fragrance to them,
and the quality of the fabric is good.
The formula isn't all that great though.

BOTTOM LINE

Ok-product. But I'm sticking to my baby wipes, cheaper and more effective at removing makeup.   

 That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

50% OFF COASTAL SCENTS | WHAT I GOT [brushes & more!]+ What I strongly recommend you get!



HEY DOLLS!
So this morning I got an email from Coastal scents stating they have launched a 50% off
which always happens round this time off year. 
And yes I'm weak whenever I see a 50% off offer. 
And I caved. 
Here's what I got - 
and why I got them, and below find a product I strongly recommend from their website! 

 

As many of you might know I'm a freelance makeup artist, 
so for me brushes are always a huge investment. 
I had to pause for a short while till I set up my new vanity area, 
and will resume in a month or so (I can't wait!). 
I can understand why people wouldn't buy as many brushes as I do, 
but when you use brushes on clients, NO brush should be repeated. 
I've actually seen makeup artists at public events repeating brushes on their clients, 
which is gross, unsanitary and very unprofessional.
I think I currently have 7-8 brush sets, which allow me to have a total of 8 clients in one day
before I'd have to wash the whole lot. 

Anyway -
I've bought coastal scents brushes before and I was blown away by them.
So of course I'm getting new ones :D
I LOVE blending brushes - 
I use them to blend my concealer, my eyeshadow, 
and obviously to soften any harsh lines with makeup. 
They're so multitasking, so I had to get me a bunch of their blending brushes. 
And because they had many different ones, 
I decided to try them all - 
So I got 2 of their classic blender natural brushes
2 of their classic blender synthetic brushes,
2 of their classic blender crease synthetic brushes,
and 3 of their pro blending fluff brushes.
I also threw in 2 of their classic shadow large synthetic brushes,
a classic buffer small synthetic brush
and a classic large synthetic brush 
(which I'm hoping is identical to the one in the 22 brush set.)
Oh and of course I HAD to get a backup of my 22 brush set -
which is my favourite brush set of all time!
Check out my old video review of it below!




 And onto other products I got.

Most of these products are meant for mixing with other products.
Well you can you them on their own, but I got them for mixing.

Except for the African black soap, of which I got a sample size for $0.40 just to try it out.
I must say that I think it's nice of coastal scents, and it totally encouraged to get products from this
Project Ghana range, through which you'll be able to help women and families in Ghana. Plus you're getting great quality products for your money. It's a win-win situation, really. READ ON HERE

Onto some insight on the products I got.

African black soap - this is supposed to be a very nice cleansing soap and effective for removing makeup, so I decided to get a sample size. I often get bored with skincare products, so I didn't want to get the whole thing. If I like it, I'll definitely order more in the future.

Virgin Coconut Oil - Coconut is famous for it's benefits both for skincare and for hair,
and I've been researching information to make my own diy stuff such as moisturisers and hair products and what not, and I will definitely be doing videos about those in the near future.

 Shea Oil - Like Shea butter and even more than shea butter,
 it's famous for its benefits for the skin and such, so definitely something I will be using for my diys.

Sweet Almond Oil - Great for hair and skin, so I threw this in too.

Black Colour Corrector - I got this because on the websites it says you can use it to darken foundations. And the NYX foundation (my HG foundation) doesn't come in many dark shades,
so I decided to get this to try out, so I'll have something for my darker clients.

And last but not least a fragrance oil - in cotton candy, again for my hair / skincare product mixtures.
I like sweet scents so I hope this one fits my bill.

In case you're wondering, The total order cost me some 81 euros which is a little over $105
including shipping costs which were $47. The order was $65 so as you can see, shipping kind of almost doubled the price. However, because there's a 50% going on at the moment, it's like getting
free shipping plus a little something extra knocked off the total price, which is very good,
and I've tried coastal scents before so my mind is rest assured that the products are of great quality.
The only issue would be customs now.
And that's bound to happen, even though last time I ordered I don't recall paying custom fees.


Again, I strongly recommend that 22 brush set, it's the best brush set you can get for that price,
plus you can get it with a 50% off till 2nd December.
Plus it's of amazing quality!

ESSENCE TE Cherry Blossom Girl Review w/ Swatches!


HEY DOLLS!
I have had this blush for quite a while,
and I've been meaning to review it,
but I kind of postponed it because I have so many things to review. 







ABOUT THE PRODUCT

It's a duo blush type of thing. To be honest I wish there was mor eof the brighter shade than the lighter shade. The lighter shade blends quite nice as a highlighter, but it's a tad too pigmented for a typical highlight. I like to mix the two shades together, or even use the darker shade on its own. Both shades have a slight sheen to them. It lasts all day on my dry to normal skin, and applies like a dream.


 

 

BOTTOM LINE

I definitely like this blush, I don't reach for it everyday - and I wouldn't say it's a favourite of mine, but it's nice to have and applies beautifully.

That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

ELF Essentials Eyeliner in Copper | Review w/ Swatches !



HEY DOLLS!
Even though I am not the biggest fan of ELF's essentials line
(I much prefer their studio line)
every now and then I like to try out products from this line because 
the prices are dirt cheap and sometimes the products turn out to be great.


ABOUT THE PRODUCT

So this is a glitter eyeliner. The glitter is not fine, but not gritty on the eyes either. 
The formula is a tad watery, 
but sticky enough to make the glitter stay. 
The shade is a beautiful copper- gold colour. 
The wand is quite easy to use and picks up just the right amount of product.




BOTTOM LINE

I definitely like this glitter eyeliner
and I do recommend it !

I've had this lipstick for ages and it's been quite neglected in my collection. 
Such a shame, because the pigmentation and shade are amazing!

MY MUA WISHLIST !



HEY DOLLS!
I have been loving sharing my wishlists with you all - 
I always tend to wait for great promotional offers, 
like at least a 20% off or free shipping or something of the sort. 
I'm waiting for a 50% OFF from MUA to be honest, 
They've already had 20% off - and I have a feeling they'll have a 50% off soon, 
which is why I won't make my order now. 
Because if I order with a 20% off, and they launch a 50% off a couple days later, 
I'll freak out. 


Let's start with the lip stuff I want.



MUA fashionista lipstick in buff, baby doll pink £3

I don't quite like the packaging, at least from what I've seen. 
But I've seen some swatches and these two shades seem too gorgeous not to get.
I don't know if MUA is keeping the fashionista line, it seems like they haven't restocked items that went out of stock ages ago. 
I also want to try one of their fashionista foundations and a primer of theirs, if they're still going to stock this line. 

MUA matte lipsticks in pouty pink, peachy keen and scarlet red. £1.50

These matte lispticks are fairly new, and from reviews I've seen so far, these three shades seem to be just my shades. 

MUA luxe velvet lipsticks £3

Talk about limecrime-like velvetines!
I fancy all the shades - if I'm not mistaken there are 5 shades. 
And duh - I want them all. 
The shade names are criminal, funk, kooky, reckless and atomic. 


Onto more items I want. 

MUA pro base prime and conceal £1.50

I really want to give this one a go. Even though I have very low expectations because 
I don't think highly of MUA concealers already, but sure why not. 

MUA fashionista concealer in light £6

It's not really £6 - it's been discounted to £1.50 for  while.
The packaging lures me and I would love to give this a go. 

MUA undress your skin highlighting powder £3

I've seen swatches - it looks great..
I've been wanting this ever since it came out. 
But it was out of stock for a long time
so I haven't had any luck. 

MUA blusher and contouring brush F6

I love trying out new brushes. 
I have a couple from MUA and this was out of stock when I last placed my order. 
It seems like it could potentially be a good contouring brush, 
so I'll definitely try to get my hands on it. 

MUA blending brush E3

This brush I've wanted for the longest time. I actually managed to order two of these
but they never made it to my package. 
My heart is broken, but I'll live, and I shall get my hands on it!

MUA eyebrow pencil in blonde £1.50

I'm dumb, I'm stupid and why the heck didn't I get a back up of this in my last order. 
I'll have to order like 10 of these. Either the MUA or the VIVO one because I'm running out. 

MUA nail polishes in amaretto crush, deepest purple, frozen yogurt £1 each

Honestly, had they not changed the packaging I would have never tried another MUA polish. 
but these seem so cool and Essie like, they derserve a shot.

 MUA luxe power brow in light

Another new product from MUA.
I love their regular blonde brow pencil so I desperately want to give this one a shot. 

MUA smokin palette

I heard great things about this, so I would love to try it out for myself. I actually won't be getting the matte one. I've seen a review on the Sunday Girl, and she hated it. And if she hates it, I know I will too. 

MUA undress me too palette

Basically it's meant to be a Naked 2 Urban Decay palette dupe. And since 
I'm such a cheapskate and won't buy the real deal (I'm not that lured, honestly)
I'd like to try this baby out instead. 


 That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

WJCON Gitter Eye Liner in Gold | Review w/ Swatches !



HEY DOLLS!
A few months back I was invited to a WJCON meet up thing - and I got some products from their brand. In case you've never heard of it - WJCON is an Italian brand available in Italy and Malta for the time being. The price range I'd say is quite wide but still very much affordable. The brand provides great quality products that deliver. 




 

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

This gold glitter eyeliner was in my goody bag. I was quite pleased about it because I normally love gold glitter eyeliners. But did this one deliver or what? Depends the way you see it. If you're looking for a gold chunky glittered eyeliner, this will probably not fit your bill. But if you're looking for a gold shimmery eyeliner, you'd probably love this. I love using both shimmery and glittery eyeliners and I found this to be very pigmented, non watery, and beautiful when applied on the inner lashline.


 



I used it in the following look and I have a couple of tutorials in which I featured it too!

 

 

 

 

BOTTOM LINE

A great liquid gold eyeliner, I was hoping it had chunky glitter, but it's a nice change for me,  and the shimmer is not sparse or watery, so it's perfect. It lasts for a long time too. Highly recommended!

That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

MUA Intense Glitter Eyeliner in Gold Nugget | Review w/ Swatches !




HEY DOLLS!

I have recently reviewed another MUA intense glitter liner
- the one in silver sparkle -
and today I will be reviewing another shade called Gold Nugget.


 

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

These eyeliners need to be sharpened - and they come with a built-in sharpener,
which can be a good thing and a bad thing.
It's definitely handy.. but it can dry out your eyeliner quicker
because air flows through the sharpener cap.
I like that the packaging reflects the shade,
and the shade is actually a gorgeous peachy-goldeny shade with gold shimmers,
perfect for a base for other eyeshadows.
Such a gorgeous colour.



BOTTOM LINE

I do not like the other one - silver sparkle - but I definitely like this one.
It's a gorgeous shade as a base and I totally love it!



That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!
