Technic Cosmetics Review

Technic Cosmetics Review.

After reading many reviews of this brand, I was excited to try out the products for myself.
Technic Cosmetics has an amazing range of cosmetics at very affordable prices.  The packing of their products is very sleek and light weight, which is very appealing and helpful if you travel a lot.

After trying a few products out for myself, I was amazed at the quality of the products, especially as they were all priced under £5.

I decided to write a review of the products I tried out – I hope you enjoy!

Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder – Pink Sparkle £3.00

I am so happy that I had the chance to try out this highlighter as it is truly beautiful. This highlighter is extremely pigmented and unlike many other budget highlighters, this one leaves a glowing finish, without looking like you have tons of glitter on your face.

I have used this highlighter in both the day and night and it is extremely long lasting. If you’re looking to try out a budget highlighter I would definitely recommend you try this one out.

Face Powder Brush – £4.75

I used this Face Powder Brush which is also from Technic Cosmetics to apply my highlighter. Not only is the colour of this brush amazing, but it’s so soft and fluffy which I adore.

Juicy Stick Lipstick – Bare Necessities £2.99

I tried the Juicy Stick Lipstick in the shade Bare Necessities. The shade has a Nude/Caramel tone which I love. This product is long lasting and doesn’t dry out your lips which is great.

Eyeshadow Primer – Shimmer £1.99

This Eyeshadow Primer has an amazing highlighting base, which can be used on it’s own or under eyeshadow. I found this product really helps to stop eyeshadow from creasing and it also allowed my eyeshadow to stay in place all night.

Mega Lash – £4.00 

Mega Lash is described as a ‘mega volumising mascara’ and it does exactly that. I was surprised at how amazing it made my lashes look and it wasn’t clumpy at all. The brush on this mascara makes it really easy to ensure that every eyelash is covered and not squashed together.

Here is my finished look using the products.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of Technic Cosmetics and I would love to hear if you have tried out any of their products!

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!

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 August Lip Product Round Up!

This month I have been totally obsessed with trying out new lip products.
Although I usually tend to stick to traditional lipsticks, I decided to try out some alternatives and I absolutely love them.

I decided to choose my favourite four and show you why I will definitely be keeping them in my makeup bag for September!

Too Faced Melted Metal – Melted Metallic Macaron  £18.00

This liquified metalic lipstick is the perfect texture and colour for a summers day. The texture of this product does not leave your lips feeling sticky, which is always a bonus when looking for lipsticks and glosses.

This lipstick also lasts several hours and you are able to build up a bolder colour if needed. I tend to only use a small amount of the product to gain a light pink shade but if a lot of the product is applied you can gain a bright pigmented pink colour.

 

 

MAC Lusture – See Sheer    £15.50

This lipstick is one of MAC’s classics. I love the coral tones of this product and also how it lasts throughout the whole day. Although the price is higher than some drugstore brands, you will be sure to find that the texture and tone of this product is totally worth it.

 

 

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer – Tranquility    £3.00

Not only is the price of this product amazing, but this matte lipgloss is the perfect dupe for the Kylie Matte Lip Kits. I love the texture of this lip lacquer, along with the fact that it sure to stay on throughout the day. With this product only costing £3.00 it would be rude not to try it out!

 

 

NYX Lingerie – Exotic £6.50

This matte lip gloss is similar to the MUA Luxe product previously mentioned, but I feel that the quality is much better as it does not leave your lips feeling dry and cracked. This product still has the same lasting effect as other high street matte lip glosses, but I feel that the texture and application of this product allows it to the be the best budget matte lip gloss.

The colour is a little darker than the other products I have chose this month, but it is my go-to lip gloss when I am going out of a meal or cocktails in the evening.

 

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed reading this review.
It would be great to hear which products you are loving this month!

My top ten party essentials!

As the Christmas period is coming to an end, I thought that it would be helpful for me to post my top ten party essentials to help get you ready for the new year. After careful consideration, I have chosen my favourite ten products, all of which I will be using whilst I get ready for my NYE night out! I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do!

  1. The Scrub of Your Life – Soap & Glory  £7.00
    This is all my time favourite body scrub! It’s perfect for prepping your skin before tanning or just to get your skin feeling silky smooth.
  2. KIKO Cleansing Milk & Tone £5.90
    I have only recently started using this product but it’s the best cleanser I have tried in a long time! The price is very reasonable and it works wonders on my face.
  3. Dove Summer Glow Gradual Tan £5.25
    This product has recently been re-packaged, but it still works as wonderful as ever. I’m not a huge fan of fake tan but this gradual tan gives a very natural glow to my skin and is really easy to use.
  4. Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion £3.39
    Even after using a gradual tan body lotion, I love to make sure my skin is well hydrated and this product definitely does the job! 
  5. YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer  £29.00
    I have mentioned this product a little too often on my blog but it’s only because I adore it! It honestly is the best primer a girl could wish for.
  6. Benefit High Beam  £19.50
    After trying out many highlighters, I have chosen to stick with High Beam as my ultimate go to highlighter. Even the smallest amount of this product wakes my skin up and leaves me glowing all day.
  7. Clinique High Impact Colour Lip Colour -Sassy Spice £18.00
    I always tend to go for a red lip colour when I go on a night out and this is definitely one of my favourites! It’s not too bright and lasts all night – I will definitely be using this for NYE this year.
  8. John Freda Miraculous Recovery Serum   £6.29
    Before I leave the house I always make sure that I have applied plenty of this serum to my hair to make sure that I don’t leave the house looking like a frizz ball. I don’t like using hairspray much but this product keeps my hair neat and tidy ready for the night!
  9. Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray De-Slick  £21.00
    After applying my makeup I like to use this setting spray in order to keep my makeup in place and ensure that my skin stays under control. It is perfect at ensuring that my face doesn’t get oily throughout the evening and that I don’t have to worry about reapplying my makeup.
  10. Jimmy Choo Exotic Perfume  £34.99
    Last but not least is my favourite perfume. This is a limited edition Jimmy Choo scent which was released in the summer but I absolutely love it. If you happen to come across it I would definitely recommend you buying it!

 

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my favourite beauty products and I would love to hear what products you use before a night out!
Have a happy new year and a wonderful night xoxo
