Review: NYX double sided eye pencil

Hi Beauties,

One of my favourite online makeup brands is NYX. It is amazingly cheap 
and good quality. Browsing through the NYX cometics website I found these pencils in the clearing section and decided to try them out.  This product is discontinued on the NYX website,  but it can be found on cherryculture and joy cosmetics on ebay. (Links will be linked down below).  The Double Sided is an eye Liner & Shadow which makes it easier to create an easy and fast smoky look. The brown eyeshadow side is smooth, glides on and wears well without creasing with a primer.   However, the black has a hard texture but if one rolls it between their hands it will be softer and easy to apply. I use both sides as an eye liner. It stays on the waterline for good 2 hours if set with an eye shadow. I like the brown side more since it gives more of a natural look instead of harsh black. If I were to see them in different colours, I would buy them in a heart beat.

What's in my everyday make up bag?

Hi beauties,

I keep my everyday's essentials in a small Makeup bag on my vanity, since it's much easier to reach in the morning rather than going through loads of products.

E.L.F Mineral Infused Face Primer

This primer is amzing. It helps to keep oil at bay, therefore no retocuhing is needed throughout the day.

Rimmel Match Perfection in shade 040 Soft Beige

I use this concealer under my eyes to conceal my under eye circles.

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I use this primer in order to keep my eyeshadow stay put throughout the day.

Sigma F30 brush

With the sigma F30 (a large powder brush with the powder), works perfectly to set my concealer and mattify my face.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder  

Inglot 330M (Matte)

This eye shadow is a light beige. I use it in the inner corners and brow bone.

Eyelash curler 

Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night mascara

I'd curl my eyelashes first, then put on mascara.

NYX Blush in the shade PB03 Angel 

I apply my blush with a small stipple brush in order to achieve a natural finish.

July Favorites

Hello Beauties :)

Here are my July Favorites. There are a few products that I like; however there are 5 products which have exceeded my expectations. 

The first product is Essence Gel liner in the color Berlin Rocks 03. First and foremost I love the color since it suits my eye color and also I prefer it from straight up Black. The color is a purple color with very tiny shimmers throughout. It has a very creamy consistency and it is highly pigmented. I was also impressed because it stayed on all day and it did not smudge at all. I really like this product and I would recommend it to anyone.

ELF Angled Eyeliner Brush
I apply this Gel Liner with ELF angled eyeliner brush. It is a very precise brush therefore you can apply it as thick or thin as you want. Also the price beats them all, a quality brush for only 3 sterling J. I think that this brush and the gel liner make the perfect pair. 

The next product is Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara. This is one of the best mascaras that I have tried so far. Its formula is perfect for elongating the lashes and building up volume. Also the brush is neither too large and neither too thin therefore it can reach even the smallest of lashes.

Another Maybelline product is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in the color Turquoise Forever. The first thing that caught my eye is the intensity of the color. Personally I love blues and this product’s color is perfect. It has quite a creamy consistency and it applies evenly without tugging your eyelids. It also lasts quite a long period of time and it is perfect as a base for the eye shadow.

The last product is a hair product and it is CHI Silk Infusion. I apply this product at the ends of my hair while it is still damp, before blow drying it. It is a very good heat protecting product and it leaves your hair shiny and silky. I have the smallest bottle of this product and it is not a cheap product however this small bottle has lasted me more than a year, since only a pea size amount goes a long way.
