Obviously, there’s some beauty products that everyone constantly raves about (for example: Maybelline The Falsies Mascara, NYX Butter Lipglosses, Urban Decay 24\7 eyeliners, Naked Palettes, etc..) and there’s some underdog products that need some love and encouragement, they’ve always been rarely talked about! which is weird because they’re worth the rave. (well, not the rave, but a little attention).
Let’s start with the eyes, Shall we?
First thing is the Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadows, they’re just like MAC, and i actually like the quality of them, they’re quite smooth and easy to apply, and the shimmery shade is really beautiful!
sorry, i don’t know the shades’s numbers.
NYX probably a brand that needs a little more love in the world, but i guess since it’s hard to find, it’s hard to get the rave that it deserves. This is the NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Dance The Tides, probably one of my favorite warm brown matte shadows, it has got a good color payoff and the color selection is brilliant!
NYX Eye pencils & Slide on Pencils (as you can see, i love NYX!) i love these eye pencils because they are easily blendable, the only downside is that they don’t last much time, but they work amazing as an eyeshadow base, i use the white pearl in my inner corner and then apply some shimmery shadow on top, and it works amazing even alone, i use the white in my waterline, but it doesn’t last a long time unfortunately.
moving on to the Slide on pencil, i use it in Jet Black for tightlining, and it works well, last a good amount of time, creamier than the eyepencils (from the name you probably guessed it!) but i like these pencils, i am afraid of using it on my lash line, because it’s too creamy so, i only use it on my tight line.
Topshop Makeup specifically, Lipsticks and cream blushes. the lipsticks are great quality, wide variety of colors, and for the blush, it’s absolutely gorgeous, it has a velvety texture and the color is amazing! i totally love them!
I know that no one will pay that much for a lipgloss, but i like the idea of this one, there’s a button to press, and the applicator will pop right up! (that doesn’t sound great doesn’t it?) and the applicator is quite cool, it’s designed to hug the curves of the lip while applying the lipgloss. and the color is beautiful too. This is Lâncome Gloss In Love in the color Peach Show 146.
I love The Body Shop makeup, it’s definitely a good quality make up, this lipgloss is good, it’s great for everyday, quite moisturizing and non-sticky. but i remember when i first got it, it was kind of sticky! but all i know is now it’s working great with. i got it in the raspberry flavor, (unfortunately, it doesn’t taste like raspberry, they let me down, but at least it smells like raspberry!) it’s not opaque, that’s why it’s good for everyday use, but it has a hint of color, which is good enough!
Again! some people might feel like it doesn’t really worth paying that much money on a Benefit lipgloss! but, it is such a good lipgloss, i got it in a set with Cha Cha tint, Coralista blush, and the Coralista lipgloss, so it’s a minor version of the original gloss, but i like that it’s opaque, gloss-y but it doesn’t have shimmer or glitter, sparkle, or whatever so it’s smooth on the lips, and it’s non-sticky at all, it’s really nice, and i feel like it’s worth a little more spotlight in the makeup world.
Back in the day, when i was a kid; i used to see my mom have a bunch of these lipsticks, obviously it was one of her favorites!
but now, i know why! the formula is great, the color payoff is awesome, and it’s long lasting, but non-drying, and it’s affordable! which is great!! i got two colors of them; Pink Blush, which is a light, blue based pink; Guest List, which is a shimmery dark peach, with a hint of pink to it..
This is the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks, Best formula ever!! I was impressed with this formula the first time i tried this lipstick! smooth, easy to apply, moisturizing, and pigmented af!! i got it in the color Vintage Pink, which is a mauve-y pink shade. and i got it because i heard it’s a dupe for MAC Syrup lipstick, which is awesome because it means paying less money on a lipstick! and who doesn’t want that??!!!
the only downside for this lipstick is that it doesn’t smell that nice! actually, it stinks! i don’t like the smell of it at all!! but what do you do when the lipstick is so good.. you turn the other cheek!
i highly rate these lipsticks, if you can handle the smell..
Wet ‘n’ Wild lipsticks, great long lasting formula, smells good (kind of cinnamon-y a little bit!!) but they are so drying, but not like in an annoying way, but they are quite drying, i got 2 colors; Just Peachy, a well-known color in the makeup community from this range; and Cinnamon Spice, which is a dark, red plummy shade with a hint of brown. overall great all-day wear lipstick, but quite drying. worth the try..!
Finally, the last products of this post are not makeup; but lip and beauty related!! the Labello Soft Rosé lip balm and the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula.
first i’m going to talk about the Labello one, awesome MATTE lipbalm, a light pink hint of color, beautiful scent,good for before makeup (because again! it’s matte!), definitely check it out!!
The Palmer’s one, Great for everyday, tastes so good, smells yummy, glossy finish, awesome moisturizing properties (contains Vitamin E).
That was it for today’s post! hope you liked it, Thanks so much for reading, and i’ll talk to you very soon!!
(Guys! it’s Eid now so, i come home late at night and i’m exhausted af! so, sorry for being away, or if my words aren’t going right together, Thank you for understanding!)
Love, Shahad ..
