I haven’t shared any new additions to my make up bag for a while, so here we go with a new beauty post of the products I’m loving at the moment. Burgundy is the perfect wintery shade and whilst we normally reserve it for December, I’m putting this handful of products to work well into the New Year too.
Billion Dollar Brows
First up I wanna talk about this dark blonde brow product from Billion Dollar Brow. I hadn’t heard of the product before they kindly got in touch, but I’m impressed. It has an easy to use applicator brush and it’s not too dark for my very light blonde brows, thank god.
I’m such a fangirl over NYX lip products. The consistency, the variety of colours and the many collections just have me at hello. This lip gloss is from the Butter Gloss collection and oh my word, it does what it says on the tin. Easy to wear and long-lasting, this gloss is in a brown-nude shade and I love to layer it over a nudey-pink lipstick. It’s been kicking around my make up bag for a while but it’s a firm fave.
Sleek Cosmetics are a known brand around these parts and one I share often. You can’t go wrong with the price and the variety of products on offer, to rival your more expensive brands is incredible.
I wanted to share two products from the brand today – one of the matte lip glosses which are actually insane and a liquid eyeshadow product in plum. Both are super long-lasting, easy to apply and don’t feel heavy on the skin either which is a major plus point!
Apply the liquid eyeshadow with a slightly damp brush and blend and it gives the wow factor. The deep plum shade teamed with lashings of mascara is my fave. I haven’t tried wearing it at the same time as the lip gloss yet but I think that might have to happen soon!
