One of my new favourite make up brands is Technic. I reviewed a few of their products last year here and I am now trying some more of their range.
The get gorgeous highlighting powder is such a beautiful gold shade that shimmers in the light. I have swatched this on my hand for you to see how the shade comes out:
I really love this highlighting shade and I think it will be great for that bronzed, sun kissed look in the summer!
The colour correcting setting powder is a really great finishing powder to set your make up in place. It is easy to use and you only need a small amount on your brush 🙂
The brow pen is easy to use, the shade I picked it dark brown:
It is easy to use as it is a felt tip nib, you can have it as thick or as thin as needed.
The megalash mascara in black, left my lashes looking longer and thicker and I was really impressed!
Another new brand that I had not tried before is Lisa Blur. I got my hands on two of her Xtreme lipsticks.
Top to bottom:
Left to right:
Both lipsticks were so creamy to apply and they are highly pigmented so you only need a small amount for full coverage. The staying power is insane as well. What more could you ask for from a lipstick?!
Not shy is a beautiful pinky plum shade and Bar crawl is more of an aubergine purple. This particular range has 13 different shades to choose from and they are priced really reasonably at £15 each.
Sometimes lipsticks make my lips feel dry but these felt really nice on my lips, It didn’t even feel like I had anything on them.
I am hoping to try some other products from this brand as I really an impressed so far.
I love trying new make up from brands I haven’t tried before. I had seen a few reviews online for a brand called Know cosmetics and saw you can buy them in Superdrug.
No dark shadows is an under eye concealer that can also be used to highlight your face. It is available in two shades – Wow (rosy tone) and Pizazz (yellow tone). I love the fact it is waterproof too so it is great to wear in the summer when your face may get a little more oily. I often struggle in the warmer months and before you know it, your make up is sliding and creasing all over the place!
Top shade : Pizazz
Bottom shade : Wow
The formula is slightly creamy, they are easy to apply and it blends in well. You can customise the perfect shade by mixing the two if needed. I found Wow was the perfect shade for me!
At £15 I think this is a pretty good price for high-quality concealer and is pretty much on par with the top cruelty free options you can find today. I think it is always worth paying a bit more for something if it works better than cheaper alternatives.
This isn’t something I thought I needed until I saw someone post about it online and I thought ooooh yeh I better get on of those!
A lot of us carry round expensive make up with us, but one drop and that’s it your whole palette could be ruined, eyeshadows broken, mirror broken etc.
The wonderful Keeping Elegance have created a handy carry case, perfect to keep your Urban Decay naked palettes safe in!
You can buy them online here and I think it is such a great concept. You buy a case for your phone, iPad etc but you don’t think about protecting your make up you have just spent a lot of money on?!
I managed to get my hands on a few Lord & Berry products to try. I have always been a fan of their lip crayons and lip liners but never tried anything else from the range before.
The eyeshadows(from left to right) are in shades Denim, Frost Jewel and Oasis.
I was very surprised at how pigmented they are, This was only one layer, you can always layer pigments on top of each other if some are a bit lighter.
The lip oil potion is a treatment to hydrate and protect your lips. It also can make your lips look smoother and plumper.
Metallic eyeliner is definitely one of those statement products. you could have barely any make up on and have a metallic eye and it would stand out and look so great!
Eye of horus have created a range of liquid metal eye liners that I am in love with. I have been trying out the silver. It is so easy to use with the brush tip and it is cruelty free (I know a lot of people that will only use cruelty free make up!).
As well as using it as an eyeliner you can also coat your lashes with it after mascara and it looks so cool 🙂
