Small Haul:- Make Up Store

Hello Beauties,

Today I teamed up with Martina from All Things Fabulous Beauty Blog to visit the new out at The Point the "Make Up Store". This make up brand is already established in various countries for example USA, Australia, Denmark and many others. We both wanted to try out their products, and since Martina already visited the outlet during its launch, we decided to team up and go together.

I only purchased two things, but I'm definitely planning to purchase more of their products in the future. The first product that I picked up is a lipstick. I had been eying this lipstick from the very first day that they set up their  Facebook Page back in November. It is a light berry purple color. I was impressed but its pigmentation and also it is very smooth and moisturizing. The price of this lipstick was 13.29 euro.

I am always searching for unique and unusual colors therefore the product immediately caught my eye is a bold aquamarine color, which I must say, I have never seen an eyeshadow color quite like it. The color that I purchased is called "Aquarius". The price for this eyeshadow was also 13.29 euro which in my opinion is a reasonable price for the amount of product that one gets since the size of this eyeshadow is double the size when compared to a MAC eyeshadow which costs more.

Hope you liked this haul,

Until next time,

Take Care,

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.

My Favourite Lip Combination

Hello Beauties :)

These past few weeks I have been wearing bold lips every time I go out, I think they brighten up every outfit and makeup look. In my opinion I think the perfect bold lip is MAC Magenta lip liner together with MAC Rebel lipstick. They make up the perfect pair :)

This is how I apply it:

Step 1:- Before applying the lip liner, always apply your favorite lip balm first so as to moisturize your lips and to have a smoother application and in the end a better color outcome. This step should be done for every type of bold lip that you decide to wear. It makes a big difference.

Step 2:- Apply the Lip liner around the perimeter of your lips and also fill in the entire lip. This will help to make the lipstick color more defined and prevent the lipstick from feathering throughout the day. In this case I applied MAC Magenta Lip liner. The reason why I apply the lip liner all over the lip is because when the lip stick fades the lip liner leaves a tint so you do not need to keep re touching your lip stick all the time.

Step 3:- Apply the bold lipstick of your choice to your lip. I prefer to apply straight from the tube because I find that the color payoff is better this way when compared to applying the lipstick with a lip brush. If I do any mistakes I arrange them by applying some concealer around the lip. In this case I applied MAC Rebel lipstick. You could also choose to apply some clear lip gloss to have a shinier finish, but in this case I prefer a somewhat matte finish, I think that the lip gloss is too much.

I hope you like this Post, if there are any suggestions for future post please leave them in the comments section.
