Making You Feel Better During That Time Of The Month: Betty Box Review

Recently, Betty Box got in touch with me asking if I’d like to review their monthly subscription box which is centred around your period and designed especially for teen girls (although I can imagine that people who aren’t teenagers would love this too, it is just full of great bits and bobs that really help you feel that bit more normal during that time of the month!), and of course I jumped at the chance and said yes!  This box is filled with loads of treats to make your period less of a pain, and because you design it when you subscribe, it comes with the sanitary products you love and know work for you – all for £6.99 for your first box, then £10.50 every month after.  For the price, what you get is such a bargain!

So, how exactly does Betty Box work? I wondered the exact same, because of course, everyone’s periods are different, they fall at different times of the month and need all sorts of products.  Betty box has such a unique and personalised subscription service, so the box you receive every month is perfectly tailored to you and your body!

  • The box contains everything you’ll need to get you through the month, in a handy little pouch labelled ‘for now’, you receive liners and pads, in a box labelled ‘for later’, you receive your choice of sanitary products for the daytime, and in a box labelled ‘for night’, you receive your choice of products for the nighttime!  It’s so customisable, as Betty Box have loads of brands to choose from, and you can get a selection of all pads, all tampons, or a mixed selection!  I chose to have a mixed selection of products, in order to truly test out everything.  Betty Box have all sorts of brands, including Always, Body Form, Tampax, Lil Lets and Kotex – you’re sure to find something that you use or that works for you and your body with their huge selection!
  • Once you’ve made your box by going online and choosing all the sanitary products you want in there, you then pick a delivery date.  At first, this is where I thought how can a box like this work if there is only one date it is delivered on.  Of course, there isn’t just one date – there are three!  This way you choose either the 10th, 20th or 28th of the month to have your box sent to you, so it comes in time for your period!

Betty Box is a teen version of the popular subscription box for periods called ‘Pink Parcel’, and they also have a website, Betty.Me, where they write about everything and anything you could want to read about: style, lifestyle, body and people.  It’s like an online magazine!

Anyway, I’m sure you’re all here to see what is inside the box – so let’s get on to it!

IMG_4023

So, in the box you get a huge variety of things: I was so excited whilst unpacking this!  In the box labelled ‘for night’, I got four longer length nighttime pads, in the box labelled ‘for later’ I got three pads and fourteen tampons, and in that gorgeous striped pouch I got six liners and three pads.  So far, I would say that you’ve got a huge bargain for what you’re paying, as you have enough to last you through your period (just about, I know I would need a little more than this but for the average light-medium period, this is perfect!).  Also, can we just talk about the packaging on this: it’s so bright and happy, so it’ll really help to brighten your mood when you might be feeling a bit down in the dumps!

IMG_4027

The pouch full of liners and pads is so great. I love this addition as not only does it add some variety to the box and break up the flow of boxes within a box, but it’s super useful!  I know that I’ll be taking this in my bag with me now, and it’s nice and compact but still manages to fit enough into it for what you’ll need.  Plus, the hot pink and blue stripes are so vibrant and summery!

IMG_4031

These two boxes of supplies I really loved, not only for the fun packaging but I really like the way they open.  It makes the products so accessible and you can just have these in your cupboard and it’s easy to grab what you need!

Now, onto the bit of the box I was most excited about: ‘For You’. This box is filled with lovely bits and bobs to make you feel nice and special, and it did not disappoint! Plus, you get decently sized items and not very tiny samples, which is always a plus!

IMG_4034

So, this is everything you get in the box.  A total of eight things, that are amazing quality, alongside a little magazine which gives loads of information on all the products, what’s not to like? My personal favourite so far has been the Candy Kittens, but I might be a bit biased because I love anything that is sweets and cats related, so put the two together and you’ve got my attention!  Plus, they tasted like blueberry and weren’t overly sour, which is just what I like!

IMG_4040

Another one of my favourites from the box, and something I have been wearing all the time since receiving it, has been this Lisa Angel bracelet.  I love dainty jewellery, it looks so understated yet still so gorgeous, and this is no exception! I can see me wearing this with so many things, and I am loving the combination of rose gold and silver together, which is something I might not have gone for had I have seen it in shops.

IMG_4049

I also really loved these hair ties, which I have always been so dubious about, but I’m so glad I got the chance to try them!  You know the ones, the scary plastic springy loops that claim to be ‘snag free’ and that they’ll ‘leave your hair without marks after wear’ – well they’re not lying!  These really are so comfy to wear and my hair doesn’t get damaged by them, which proves that even the thinnest of hair works with these guys!  Plus, the gorgeous neon coral colour is perfect for summer, and these not only look great in your hair but when you’ve got them around your wrist they’re the perfect addition to any outfit!

The box also contained the coconut and coffee scrub by Scrub Love: I’ve always been so interested in coffee based scrubs, but never actually gotten round to trying them.  Let me tell you, I tried this tonight and its so good! Seriously, my skin hasn’t felt as soft in a long time!  The smell of coffee is very strong, and the mixture of coconut is really quite unique, I imagine it is quite an acquired scent – if you don’t like the strong smell of coffee then you might not like this.  However, I love a good coffee smell, and I found this one particularly revitalising!  The scent does linger on your skin for a while afterwards, which is great, but I would probably mask it with a body lotion if I was going to be around people because I think it smells a little strong and you might not at first identify it as coffee.  However, this super gentle scrub makes my skin feel luxuriously soft and I really love it!

IMG_4051

This Anatomicals hair mask was also included, which I know I’m going to love.  I always get on really well with anatomicals products and I’m sure this will be no exception; plus, the packaging is always really fun which makes for a nice product usually!

IMG_4052

These were the final three items, and I am so excited to try them out.  The nail polish is a gorgeous pale mint shade and is from L’oreal, and the Korres bath milk smells of bergamot and pear – I think it will be lovely and summery and I am really excited to try it out.  Having used the face wash by Balanceme, I can assure you that it is great!  It felt super natural and the scent wasn’t overpowering, and it left my face feeling soft and clean!

So, that’s the end of this post!  I was so happy with this Betty Box, its great value for money and something I’d really recommend to everyone!

Also, thank you for 400 followers!  That is so insane – comment a way you think I should celebrate!

The Miracle For Your Brushes: The Technic Brush Cleanser

If you’re anything like me, you don’t wash your makeup brushes anywhere near enough. This is because it’s such a chore to do, it can take up to an hour for me to wash my brushes, and the usual lazy persons shampoo method takes ages to truly get them clean. Makeup experts say you should clean your brushes after every use, but for us thats generally just too much effort!  However, I have managed to find my makeup brushes new saviour; Technic’s Brush Cleanser.  This amazing product makes it insanely easy to clean your brushes.  Now, you can wash your brushes as often as you want because this really makes it so easy!

IMG_3987

The cleanser is a solid, almost balm like consistency.  It is quite clear coloured in the tub, but it isn’t at all liquid or gel like, which is more what I had expected, so this was quite a surprise.  It smells very lightly of cucumber which is nicely refreshing, but let’s get onto what it actually does.

Firstly, you wet the brush you want to clean.  It doesn’t have to be super wet, but quite wet is good.  Then, swirl it into the cleanser; don’t worry about getting any of the pigment from the brush onto the soap, as it simply washes away with a splash of water leaving it looking as good as new.  Then, you swirl it around in your hand and you’ll see literally all the makeup from the brush just vanish!! It’s kind of insane how well this works!  Anyway, you then just need to wash away the excess soap from the brush pretty thoroughly, as sometimes there can be some excess left over in the base of the brush.  I then dry it by swirling my brush on a towel, and I find they actually dry kind of quicker when I use this too.  Also, this leaves the brush super super soft, which I love.  It has improved the quality of my brushes, and I’m super happy with it!

IMG_3986

It retails for £6.51 on amazon, and for the amount of product you get, this is amazing.  It’s going to last you for a long long time, and so it’s really affordable, especially for such a great product.

Have you ever tried a brush cleaner like this?  Tell me in the comments.

Gobsmacked Lipsticks Review

Recently, the lovely Sophie from Gobsmacked Lipsticks sent me one of her lipsticks to try, and boy am I impressed!  Gobsmacked is a new brand, launching in August 2017 and they are all about making vegan lipsticks that don’t contain any nasty and potentially dangerous chemicals.  I used to think that eco-friendly lipsticks/cosmetics meant that the final product would suffer in quality, but this lipstick has proved me so wrong; if anything, it has more staying power than lipsticks I usually use such as Rimmel London ones or Collection ones!

img_4147

As you can see, the packaging looks very luxurious, and the gold band compliments the bamboo tube really nicely.  The lid fits onto the base of the lipstick really nicely, and pulls off really smoothly which is always something I look for in a lipstick; quality packaging is so important!  The tube feels really sturdy and nice to hold.

The formula is amazing, it’s very smooth and doesn’t drag on your lips – it glides really nicely.  It smells divine, and is very moisturising all the while having a demi-matte type finish.  It’s very pigmented and has an amazing hold, it lasts me a whole day at school easily.

img_4149

The shade is so nice.  It looks very mauvey purple, but it’s a very wearable dark nude which I’m really enjoying wearing whilst we’re on the run up to spring, although it does seem like we are in summer today; it’s been 27 degrees in my garden (i’m just a little burnt!).

You should definitely check out these lipsticks when they’re all up and running in August – I’m positive everyone will love these because there really is a shade for everyone!

P.S – Thank you so much for 300 followers going on for 310!  What should I do to celebrate, make sure to leave me a comment xx!

Beauty UK Review

The lovely team over at Beauty UK have sent me some products to try and review for you guys, and I’ve really loved all of them!  Some of the colours are quite out there, and not necessairly what I’d choose but it’s always really fun to experiment.  It included lots of pink shades, which are perfect for spring but as I’m more of a neutral shades sort of girl, it’s helped to push me out of my comfort zone and try new things (like the hot pink nail polish which I’m absolutely loving!).  Sorry for the constant reviews at the moment guys – I will be getting some more varied posts up soon but for now I’ve been really excited to review all these gorgeous products.

IMG_3826

Starting off with the product I was most excited to receive: the Ultimate Pro Contour Palette.  I’m not good at contouring at all, but I’m very excited to start practising!  This palette has a really wide range of colours, which are both contouring and highlighting ones.  The undertones are quite cool for the contour shades though the very far one has got a slight orange base, which could easily be used to bronze the face.  The shades are highly pigmented and as it is a cream formula they blend really nicely and have flawless application.  I’m sure that after I’ve used this a little more I’ll be able to contour like a very bad pro – the infographic on the back of the packaging is really helpful to let you know where to contour, bronze and highlight and provides useful information on the product.  The packaging is matte black, meaning it could be a magnet for makeup covered finger prints though it can be wiped down easily and it looks very luxury.

IMG_3854

IMG_3860IMG_3859

Next up is another cream product.  I’ve never really ventured into the world of cream face makeup, but I’m really glad I’ve now got some products which are of that nature as they are really versatile and lovely. I was sent a cream blush to review, the Sweet Cheeks cream blush in the shade peachy cream.  This cream blush is easy to blend and has great pigmentation, the colour is perfect for spring and suits a range of skin tones. I’m really pale and it gives me a nice, healthy glow and I imagine it would look lovely in summer with a nice tan (a girl can dream!)

IMG_3845IMG_3835

I was also sent a matte lip cream, which as we all know, are huge in the beauty world and I too have latched onto the trend and purchased a few too many.  My favourite brand is NYX for matte lip creams, though the ones by Beauty UK are quite comparable.  I was sent the Lips Matter matte lip cream in the shade Mauve Your Body, and it really is great.  It dries matte almost instantly and has great pigmentation.  One thing I find with liquid lipstick/matte lip creams is that they can be sticky when dry, but this isn’t, which is always a major plus.  However, I wouldn’t say this is true to shade.  It definitely is not a mauve shade, but more of a hot pink, and I would definitely compare the shade to NYX’s soft matte lip cream in Milan (review here). Whilst it’s still a nice shade and will be lovely for summer when you really want a bold, vibrant pop of pink, it most definitely is not a mauve. The packaging is lovely and really professional looking, I especially love the white banding and writing; it’s very modern.  The applicator is a doe foot style so it fits to the natural shape of your lips nicely allowing even application.

IMG_3848IMG_3830

I was sent a lipgloss, which was a real surprise to receive as I haven’t used one in a long time!  I was never a huge lipgloss lover, I often found them sticky and annoying as my hair would get blown into it and stuck there.  However, when I opened this I was excited to try it out and maybe find a new love for lipgloss?  The lipgloss I was sent was the Glacier Gloss in Peach For The Sky.  This is not a super pigmented shade, but it does give a nice peachy gloss to the lips and is perfect for an everyday wear.  It is very moisturising and isn’t super sticky but still quite sticky and not all smooth on the lips.  The application is nice though and it glides on quite effortlessly.  I adore the packaging – the glossy black lid with the clear top to it is very luxurious and the design process seems to have been very thorough for the lipgloss and all these other products!

IMG_3852IMG_3847

The very last thing I was sent was a nail polish.  Now, I am not a nail guru in any way shape or form and my nails are not nice; they’re usually never painted and are never one length.  If I do wear nail polish I chip it within a day or smudge it; I’m really not very dainty.  However, getting this through the post has inspired me to paint my nails and while I didnt use this exact colour, I used a blue/turquoise/green from Avon, I’m really loving it and so far there’s no damage!  Anyway, onto the nail polish I was sent in the shade Pink Pop.  This is a really bold shade and could make a real statement to an outfit, which I’m all for.  The colour is highly pigmented after a couple of coats on the nail it is fully opaque.  The formula edges a little towards the gloopy side but if you give a good shake to the bottle before you use it, you should be fine.  I look forward to using this colour more and more as we edge into the spring and summer months and I think it’ll be really nice to make an outfit that bit more exciting; nail polish can really finish off a look.

IMG_3850IMG_3844

Finally, here are some swatches of the blush, matte lip and gloss in order!  As you can see, the peachy blush is very soft and delicate (on the very top) and so is the gloss (on the very bottom) but I wouldn’t say that the middle shade is very mauve, as it was described to be.  Nonetheless it is lovely and I will be wearing it lots!

Technic Makeup Review

Technic is a brand I love and have worked with before in this post, so when they offered to send me out some more of their amazing products to try I was really excited to say yes! I’m really excited to review all the products for you, and if you’d like to see these used in a makeup tutorial on my blog soon then make sure to leave a comment so I know you’ll want to see that. I’ve really loved using this makeup over the past few days and I hope you’ll all enjoy hearing about them.

img_3997

Starting with my absolute favourite; Mega Lash Mascara!  I first saw this mascara and thought, oh my god, the packaging.  It’s matte black and has silver, bold writing.  It sticks out in my makeup collection and looks so pretty.  The brush is so amazing, it’s really thick and chunky but has lots and lots of tiny bristles all over it which hook your eyelashes and ensure every single one is coated jet black. It gives length to the lashes, all the while creating a beautiful, glamorous, voluminous look.  I think this has become a definite staple in my collection when I want voluminous eyelashes without compromising on the quality of a product; this doesn’t go clumpy, doesn’t make my eyelashes stick together and it never makes them feel heavy, which I feel can sometimes be a bit of a downside to these sorts of mascaras.  Mega Lash ticks all the right boxes!

img_4009-3

Up next  is something I was really intrigued about, the Brow Pen.  This is in the shade medium brown, which is actually quite dark, my eyebrows are dark brown and this matched pretty well.  it’s confusing, as it’s a felt pen sort of a nib, so replicates an eyeliner, except the actual tip isn’t flexible and has quite a flat shape to it.  It’s very fluid though, and does an excellent job at defining my eyebrows and giving them structure – it’s easy to create precise hair lines making this ideal for filling in sparse brows.  It does seem to last a long time, the formula actually reminds me of a lip stain or something of a similar longevity.  I really love how thin it is as it’s really comfortable to hold and the packaging is very aesthetically pleasing.  My only downside is that this smells quite alcohol like and therefore could be irritating to some people.

img_4003-1

Next up is something I’ve been sent by Technic before, but it was received with open arms! I adore this Get Gorgeous Highlighter and since I have a duplicate of it now I shall be giving it to my Mum as she also really likes it and often pinches mine!  It’s a gorgeous bronze shade, which is very out there for a highlighter in my view – I’m not yet fully confident with wearing such bold highlight!  However, it will look gorgeous in summer and give a lovely bronzed glow to the cheekbones, and could easily be used as an eyeshadow as this has insane pigmentation (swatches to follow!).  The product in the pan is very luxurious, arranged in varying swirls, it looks really impressive!

img_4006-3

The next product that Technic sent was their eyeshadow primer which is specially formulated for use with shimmer eyeshadows.  This is really good, and I honestly didn’t expect it to be.  I was thinking along the lines of creasing and not working, or just sitting on the lid awkwardly like a weird liquid eyeshadow but it actually creates a really nice, tacky base for applying eyeshadow to.  Plus, it’s pearly pink shade looks really nice underneath lighter shaded eyeshadows, and you can’t even notice it under darker ones.  It definitely helps eyeshadow to stay on longer.  The packaging is again very attractive – well done Technic on the packaging front, it’s gorgeous!  Again, my only downside would be the slight alcoholic scent to this which isn’t ideal considering it’s going around the eyes.

img_4010-3

Finally, I was sent the colour correcting loose powder.  Now, the first thing I do whenever I get a loose powder is I smell it – weird, I know, but you’ll see why.  I hate it when they smell like flowers and old ladies, it really puts me off.  Guess what? This one doesn’t!  Plus, it’s actually so amazing!  It’s not too full coverage but because it has a yellowy tone to it, it really helps to calm and cover some of my mild redness, and it’s really good at absorbing oils and keeping you matte all day. It’s super finely milled so it creates an airbrushed, flawless finish to the face when it’s on.  I really love this, and while it wont ever take over my beloved Rimmel Stay Matte, it’s a close competitor!

img_4004-2

And finally, for the swatches.  From top to bottom we have the eyeshadow primer, the brow pen and then the get gorgeous highlighter.  Let’s applaud my artistic skills in drawing that abysmal love heart!

img_4005-3

You can find Technic’s products over on Love Thy Makeup, but they also sell on amazon!

Have you ever tried any makeup from Technic?  What did you make of it?

Lypsyl Valentines Day Lip Balms

img_3850

With Valentines day coming up, what better time than to grab an amazing lip balm which not only smells divine but does an amazing job! Lypsyl have very kindly sent me their new valentines releases – two beautiful lip balms perfect for Valentines day!  The first, ‘Uplifting strawberry and pomegranate’ is the one I’m going to talk about now, and I’ll do the next one later in the post.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Strawberry and pomegranate is the most amazing scent combination which is fruity and fun and always remains smelling great, even whilst it’s on your lips!  As soon as you pull off the lid you get a sniff of this scent, which I personally love however I imagine some who are not into very strong scents don’t.  It does remind me a lot of spring and summer, which makes me very excited for the upcoming seasons.  The packaging is a pretty reddish pink colour, again perfect for Valentines day.

“Who needs Cupid when you have Lypsyl’s luxurious lip balms? Pucker up with Lypsyl’s uplifting Strawberry and Pomegranate, your smooth and soft lips will be the perfect gift for your Valentine’s date.”

This lip balm also contains SPF15, which is very important all year round as our lips can get burnt and using a nice, protective lip balm can obviously help that not happen!  It is made with aloe vera, vitamin E and avocado oil which does all sorts of wonderful for your lips.  This lip balm is intensely moisturising, which of course is perfect for February as it is very cold – I’ve been putting lip balms to the test recently and cannot wait to fully try these out and battle them against the elements.  The packaging is also really sturdy and compact, which is perfect to grab and throw in your handbag before you leave the house.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The cherry and almond lip balm has a slightly more subtle fragrance but nonetheless still smells wonderful.  It is a much more natural scent for anyone who doesn’t like super fruity scented things, and personally I much prefer the darker red colouring of this lip balm and think it is much more suited to Valentines day.

“Roses are red, violets are blue, Lypsyl Cherry and Almond will revitalise you! The delicately scented SPF lip balm will gently hydrate and soothe your lips for an ultra-kissable pout.”

As with the other lip balm, this is too made with SPF15 and contains aloe vera, vitamin E and avocado oil.  I do find this one slightly more moisturising, and whether or not that is down to the almond part of it I do not know, however it does seem a lot more moisturising.  Again, the packaging is really nice and sturdy whilst still being small enough to put anywhere for maximum convenience.  I think this is a great lip balm and they’ve totally convinced me to rekindle the love I had for Lypsyl’s products way back in primary school; does anyone remember the lip balm they had that was raspberry scented or something and was a purple colour and used to smell (and taste!) divine?  Everyone had one of these I seem to remember!

Neither of these lip balms are tinted, so they sit on the lips really nicely and lightly, you hardly notice they’re there.  They also don’t have the nasty tingling sensation that some others do.

You can buy Strawberry And Pomegranate from here , for only £1.89 along with Cherry And Almond here.  I’d really recommend picking one of these up if you’re looking for an affordable, super moisturising and great smelling lip balm to make your lips ultra soft for Valentines day!

Bee Good Review

Recently I was sent some amazing products by Bee Good, a company which is against animal testing, and as the name suggests, helps British bees, using British honey, propolis and beeswax in all their products.  Their products are super natural, really well priced and suitable for many skin types – they have lots of ranges for both sensitive and normal skin.

I was sent two wonderful products from Bee Good.  The honey & propolis cleanser, which you can purchase here, and the raspberry and white chocolate lip balm, which you can purchase here.  I’ve been using both these products for almost a week now and thought it was the right time for me to do a review on them having seen the (wonderful) effect they’ve had on my skin.

img_3680

Starting with the Raspberry & White Chocolate Lip Balm, I have really enjoyed using this product! I’ve had a horrible cold this week, and I’ve been in desperate need of a intensely moisturising lipbalm – this really hit the spot! The smell of this, as you can imagine from reading the name, is amazing.  It smells so yummy and if it weren’t a lipbalm I’d have already eaten it all – whoops!  It’s a super strong smell which is great because I’ve been able to smell it through a blocked nose, yet when it goes on your lips it doesn’t smell too strong.  Personally I really like this as it doesn’t seem as sickly, however if you wanted a strong scent on the lips you might not love this product.  It always makes my lips super soft, and whilst it’s on, it gives a glossy look which is always a huge plus.  It isn’t a sticky lip balm as well which is great, because the wind, long hair and lip balms never mix well!

Another thing I adore about this product is the packaging. Not only is the design subtle yet very pretty and fresh, but the fact that it is a squeezy tube of lip balm makes it perfect to go in your school bag or handbag.  Also, tub lip balms are such a pain because it always ends up all over your fingers, and you have nowhere to put it!  This tube ensures you haven’t got this issue.

img_3703

Next up I was sent the 2-in-1 Honey & Propolis Cream Cleanser.  This came with a muslin cloth, which I thought was a really nice touch.  I was really intrigued about this product – I’d never tried a cream cleanser prior to this, and I’m really glad I got the chance to test one out.  Basically, you apply this to dry skin and it claims to remove all your makeup and cleanse your skin at the same time.  Whilst I’ve never done this whilst using it, and always removed my makeup first, I really do think it would remove all your makeup.  It is extremely powerful and still remains natural and gentle enough for the most sensitive of skin.  It has always left my skin feeling extremely clean and removed any remaining traces of makeup.  This smells amazing whilst still managing to be filled with skin loving natural ingredients.  My skin can get quite dry and sensitive during January as the temperatures get even colder, and this had managed to keep it super moisturised and not irritate it, which is such a godsend! The muslin cloth it comes with is slightly scratchy, and I found it increases redness and irritates my skin a little, but i’m sure on normal skin this would be fine.  Using this with just a regular flannel will work just fine.

I haven’t found that this cleanser really clears up my skin much, as my spots are still quite prevalent, however it does increase the moisture in my skin and stops it from feeling so dry.  However, I may stand corrected after using this for longer than a week or so!   It’ super natural though, so I doubt it will create any further spots – my skin seems to have reacted well to this, which is always great!

img_3684

Thank you so much to Bee Good for sending me out these products to test out – I’ve really enjoyed using them.  I urge you all to go check them out, they have some amazing and affordable skincare especially for those of you who have more sensitive and dry skin as these are all really gentle and natural.

Technic Makeup Review

Hi Guys,

Today I have a really exciting post for you all, the makeup brand Technic have sent me some of their products to review, which is really exciting!  I’ve been sent five products, all of which I’m going to review for you in this post.

Technic flat lay.jpg

 

The first thing Technic sent me was the Contour Stix, which are cream contour sticks in a light shade which is a brightening type shade, a brown shade which is the contour shade and a shimmery pink shade which is a gorgeous highlight.  The shades are all very pigmented which you can see in the swatches below.  They blend really easily, and the formula is very creamy.

 

 

Next up was the Strobe Kit, which reminds me a lot of the sleek solstice palette.  Theres two cream highlighters and two powder ones, in pinky shades and more yellowy-gold shades.  The cream shades are very easy to blend, and they have great pigmentation. The powder shades are also very easy to blend, and the pinkier one has great pigmentation, though the slightly yellower one has less pigmentation however they are both very well pigmented.

 

Next up is the Primer Spray.  I haven’t yet tested out this, however I love the idea of primer in a spray and I think it would be very conveinent.  It’s also quite tacky as a finish so I imagine it would hold on your makeup well.

img_2885-1

Next up is the Get Gorgeous bronze highlighting powder.  Oh my god, do I love this product. The colour is so pigmented and I love how the product is moulded into that waved sort of a pattern.  It honestly has the nicest shimmer and looks so luxurious.

 

Last up is the Mega Nudes 4 eyeshadow palette.  This is so gorgeous and has all and every shade you would ever need to create any look.  It’s such a good makeup palette and the shades are all so pigmented.  The shimmer shades are especially pigmented, while the matte ones are slightly less pigmented.  All the shades are so easy to blend and they’re really creamy.


That was it for my blog post today guys!  Again, massive thanks to technic for sending me these products for review, it’s been amazing working with them and the team was so helpful.  All their products are so amazing.
