lip balms - dark plum & cherry,
Hey lovelies, summer is here and England has been looking pretty nice with the sunshine here and there. Speaking of looking nice, here I am back with a beauty review, cause who doesn't like to look pretty once in a while right? :)
Born Pretty is an online makeup shop and here are some items they have on offer within the site.
If you've been following me for a while now, you'd know my strong affinity for lip products that if I had to choose one make-up item only it will be a lipstick, guaranteed.
So when given the choice to choose from the wide range of items in the site, I obviously deviated to the lip products first and chose these 2 lip balms in dark plum and cherry colour. I know it's dark and wintery but I kind of dig the idea of dark colours during summer and a dark lippie just gives the right edginess.
The products are lip balms and not lipsticks so the formula is really soft on the lips but stays on like a lipstick without drying your lips and making them chappy.
I also chose an eyeshadow palette cause you can never have enough of pretty colours :) I chose a palette with some shimmer and matte shadows for texture and chose one with more of a pastel theme for subtle summer eye make-up.The colours are pretty, the top row can be used for day and the bottom one more for night or just mix and match. The shadows stay on for hours too, of course with the help of eye primer for longevity.
There's a range of different palettes to choose from in the site as well if you're more into brighter or darker shades.
Finally the last item is the angled foundation brush. I actually wanted this to use for contouring as I wanted an angled one to make hollow cheek effects easier to achieve and this certainly holds up to that. The angle totally helps for contouring but at the same time the thickness lets you blend the make-up in. It's soft and small enough as well to put in your make-up bag.
