Billion Dollar Brows Universal Pencil Review

BeFunky Collage

 

I have recently tried out a new brow product which I am really impressed with, so I thought that I would share it with you in hopes that you love it as much as I do.

Throughout the past few years I have tried and tested many brow products, some great and some not so great. One of the main issues I have when finding a brow product is that it seems to be hard to find the perfect shade.

With that in mind, I was excited to try out the Universal Pencil by Billion Dollar Brows, as it states that it is a brow pencil suitable for all hair colours and skin tones.

 

 

The pencil features a spoolie brush on the end which is amazing as it helps you blend the product beautifully. I was so impressed with how easy the product was to apply, with a few light brush like strokes I was able to create the perfect look.

The product is very buildable, which is helpful in creating the right shade and tone to match your hair colour. I also like the fact that the pencil does not need sharpening as it uses a retractable tip pencil.

This is my end result after the using the product. I was pleased to find that the colour did not fade or smudge, leaving me with a natural brows for hours.

If you’re looking to try out a new brow pencil then I would definitely recommend you give this product a try. It can be purchased from the brands site at http://www.billiondollarbrows-uk.com

Kat Von D ‘Bow N Arrow’ Gift Set Review

thumbnail_image1.jpg

After hearing great things about Kat Von D‘s Ink Liner and the Ever Lasting Liquid Lipsticks, I couldn’t wait to try them out for myself. On a recent trip to Barcelona I managed to find a Sephora and stock up on some goods. I was so excited to find that they were selling the Bow N Arrow gift set as it featured miniature versions of both of these products.

Ink Liner – Trooper

I fell in love with the Ink Liner straight away. The thin tip on this liner allows application to be painless and easy. I also found that unlike many other liners I have tried, this product does not smudge, which is great when you’re using this product in a rush.

As advertised, this product lasts all day and does not transfer. The colour of the liner doesn’t fade at all, which leaves your makeup in tact for hours. If you’re looking to try out a new liner I would recommend you try this product. I will definitely be purchasing the full size product when this one runs out.

Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick – Bow N Arrow

I am so impressed with this liquid lipstick. Unlike many other products I have tried, this liquid lipstick does not dry out your lips. The colour of this product is the perfect nude, suitable for both day and night. I also love how this product stays put after eating and drinking.

The size of this product is so handy as I can pop in every handbag. By purchasing this gift set, it has definitely made me want to try out other shades in this range.

If you’re looking to try out Kat Von D products, I recommend you purchase this set. The price is very reasonable and it gives you a chance to try out two products without having to commit to a full size product. I purchased my set from Sephora, but they are also selling these online at Debenhams for anybody in the UK.

Have you tried out any products from this brand? It would be great to hear some your opinions.

Flawless Foundations

thumbnail_IMG_0354.jpg

If there’s one beauty product you need to get right, it’s definitely investing in a good foundation. Foundation is the base of your makeup look and I feel that by having a flawless foundation, it is easier to create a sleek and perfected look.

Over the years I have tried and tested so many great, and unfortunately not so great foundations. I decided to write a post of my four favourite foundations. These are all high end make up brands, but for the quality of the product I definitely think that they are worth every  penny.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet – 20 Beige

This foundation is very light on the skin, leaving you with a fresh, matte full coverage finish. I love to use this foundation in the summer as it allows you to have full coverage, but will still leave your skin feeling fresh and breathable.

Too Faced Born This Way – Warm Nude

This is a new favourite of mine. After reading mixed reviews of the product I was keen to try it out for myself. I was pleased to find that this foundation leaves you with a glowing full coverage complexion. I tend to apply this foundation with a beauty blender as it leaves your with an airbrushed look.

Giorgio Armarni Luminous Silk Foundation – Shade 4

I love to use this foundation when I am in need of a long lasting look. This foundation is very buildable which allows you to create a texture suited to your choice. I love how dewy this foundation leaves my skin, giving off the perfect glow suitable for both day and night.

Urban Decay All Nighter – Shade 4.0

As the name states, this foundation is great if you’re looking for something that will last all night. This product definitely provides you with full coverage. The only thing I would say is that the texture of this product is very thick, which can leave your skin feeling  heavy.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of these flawless foundations.
It would be great to hear which foundations you love!

Lipstick Loving

BeFunky Collage.jpg

Hey guys, this month I have purchased a few lip products which I adore, so I decided to do a quick review of them.

The products I have chosen are all individually unique and beautiful.
This post features both liquid and regular lipsticks, as well as an amazing lip palette.
I hope you enjoy! 

thumbnail_img_0146
Maybelline New York Vivid Matte Liquid – 50 Nude Thing.

I recently tried out the Maybelline New York Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks and I absolutely love them! Unlike many other matte liquid lipsticks, this product doesn’t leave your lips feeling dried out. The texture of this product is very velvety and the colour lasts longer than I was expecting, although I would recommend taking the product with you to top up throughout the day as it does transfer after eating.

The shade of this product looks dark in the above swatch, but it has a orange tone to it which works beautifully for both day and night.

MAC Kabuki Magic Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour – Sweet Thing.

This range from MAC is one of my favourites at the moment. The texture itself is very matte and the product is extremely long lasting. This is my new go-to product if I know I will be spending the night out and want something that will definitely last. 

The shade of this lipstick is incredible. It’s a mixture of both a dark nude and pinky tone, which suits many different looks. If you’re looking to invest in a long lasting liquid lipstick, then I would definitely recommend you give this product a go.

Maybelline New York Colour Drama Lip Contour Pallette – Blushed Bombshell.

I recently tried out this contour lip palette after hearing so many great things about it. The palette consists of a range of pink and red tones, along with a lip primer and highlighter. By using both the lip liner and lip colour, you are able to create a contoured lip look.

I decided to use the lighter shades for the above look as I was only popping to the shops, but the dark shades are also incredible. Although I don’t usually like lip palettes as they’re always harder to carry around, this palette is very small and will easily fit in my handbag.

MAC Matte Velvet Teddy.

This product is an all time favourite of mine. The nude tone is perfect for any occasion and it is always a product I have to hand. I feel that MAC lipsticks last longer than other brands, so if you’re looking to try out one of their shades, I would definitely give Velvet Teddy a go.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review on my latest lipstick favourites.
It would be great to hear what lip products you are loving at the moment!

My Favourite Face Masks

befunky-collage

Every week I dedicate time to pamper myself with a face mask. I feel that it’s the perfect way to relax, whilst keeping my skin clear and hydrated.
As winter is still upon us, I decided to write a post to let you guys know which face masks I use to protect my skin from the cold weather.

thumbnail_img_3083

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask £11.00

I first tried this product a few months back and I can honestly say it’s still the best face mask I have ever used. This mask is perfect for problematic skin as it leaves your skin feeling cleansed and silky smooth.

It’s a lifesaver when you need to get rid of blemishes fast and it has saved my life many times. The product has strong Tea Tree aroma to it, which leaves your skin tingly, which I love. Unlike many other Tea Tree masks, this one doesn’t leave your skin feeling dried out as it leaves a natural glow to your skin and soothes any redness you may have.

thumbnail_img_2919

Timeless Truth – Herbal Rejuvenation Immortelle Mask £4.90 per mask

This sheet mask is perfect for anybody having problems with dry or aging skin. The mask itself does look very weird when it’s applied, but I guarantee it works wonders.

After just one use, the mask softens your skin and leaves it feeling naturally moisturised. This mask is perfect for a pamper night or if you just need to refresh your skin after being out in the cold.

thumbnail_img_3065

Garnier – Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask £1.99

This tissue mask has been advertised a lot lately and I feel that it is a cheap and easy way to bring your skin back to life. For £1.99 you can’t go wrong.

The tissue mask does also look very strange when applied, but when it’s removed you instantly feel hydrated. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and ready to go. The mask states that it leaves your skin feeling moisturised for a week, in my opinion the moisture definitely lasts a few days, but I would still continue to hydrate my skin with creams etc. throughout the week.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review and I would love to hear which face masks you love!

Lush Snow Fairy Collection

thumbnail_img_2813

It’s that time of year again, which only means one thing – Lush has their Christmas stock out on the shelves!

Every Christmas I purchase at least one product from the Snow Fairy collection. I was beyond excited to find that my boyfriend had purchased both the Snow Fairy Shower Gel and Fairy Dust Dusting Powder for me this weekend. If you haven’t tried these products out, I would definitely recommend you give them a go, the scent is incredible!

thumbnail_IMG_2815.jpg
Snow Fairy – £7.95 250g

I can honestly say that Snow Fairy is the best shower gel I have ever used. The Bubblegum and Candyfloss scent leaves your skin smelling and feeling beautiful all day long.
It brightens up any day and is perfect for a relaxing bath.

thumbnail_IMG_2814.jpg
Fairy Dust – £7.50 70g

Fairy Dust Dusting Powder matches perfectly with Snow Fairy Shower Gel, or is great on it’s own for a toned down scent. The glittery shade of the powder makes the product great as a highlighter and is perfect for dusting your whole body if you want to leave your body smelling gorgeous all day.

Another tip for this product is to dust it on your bed sheets as it leaves the scent on your sheets until you next clean them. If you’re as obsessed with the scent as I am, it’s definitely worth trying out.

I love both of these products and recommend that everybody tried them out – the only bad thing I can say about them is that I wish they were sold all year round!
