Beautiful Brows Kit Before and After

Beautiful Brows Kit review

Beautiful Brows is a cosmetic company with the right ideals, knowing eyebrows to be ‘one of your most important assets’. A statement I agree with wholeheartedly.

The are dedicated to giving their customers the perfect eyebrow shape, definition and colour, manufacturing high quality and exclusive products for eyebrow maintenance and care. Something I believe to be essential to do as to frame the face and feel great!

The Beautiful Brows Kit* is their most popular product, an essential kit for any woman that contains the following items:

Beautiful Brows Kit Exterior

So, what did I think of the BEAUTIFUL BROWS KIT?

  • Eyebrow powder – The powder is highly pigmented and does not crumble with use, giving a lovely rich colour with every use.
  • Three eyebrow shapes – The shapes are sleek, natural and bold reusable stencils to create your desired look, I opted for bold as I have quite naturally large eyebrows and wanted to maintain my own shape. These stencils give you the option to vary your look as you see fit and are each noticeably different in size.
  • Duo applicator brush – This labelled brush has a small and firm angled end and a soft rounded to create definition. I used the angled end first and the rounded afterwards to ensure even coverage across my brow.
  • Eyebrow highlighter – The highlighter is a soft and neutral shade to make your eyebrows stand out.
  • Highlighter brush – This labelled brush is soft, sweeping the highlighter under the brow to highlight the shape of the brows.
  • Soft grip tweezers – These tweezers are angled and made from stainless steel with a rubber casing to ensure precision when plucking your eyebrows into shape.
  • Magnifying mirror – The mirror is just perfect for doing your eyebrows on the go and contained within the kit.

All the above can be bought separately online and the kit is refillable so you can always keep the compact handy or take items out as you need them during the day! The compact is very sturdy so perfect for those always on the move.

The Beautiful Brows Kit is also offered in a variety of shades to match your eyebrows to your hair perfectly:

Beautiful Brows Kits Pigmented Colours

(Slate – blonde to fair, Light Brown – fair to medium, Dark Brown – medium to dark, Chocolate – dark and Black – black)

I opted for the Dark Brown as a person with auburn and brown hair and believed it to much perfectly, giving enough pigment to make my eyebrows really stand out. It was a good match, and as long as you follow the guide you should easily find your perfect shade for you.

Overall, I find this kit essential, it beats my eyebrow pencil any day and the powder is both long-lasting and wonderfully pigmented!

Max Factor Colour Adapt

A Max Factor Colour Adapt in Natural Sand review

Every girl has their favourite go-to high street foundation and mine is, and always will be Max Factor Colour Adapt in Natural Sand!

Not only is it a wonderful quality and lasting, it is also good for those on a budget! A flawless coverage without the extortionate price tag!

I often opt for a shade slightly darker than my own, I am fair so like to try and create a bit of a healthier glow. With that in mind, I always reach for Max Factor Colour Adapt in Natural Sand*.

I got this little gem from 123 Hair and Beauty, a website that offers an affordable selection of hair and beauty products (even cheaper than the high street!) to keep even the busiest girl satisfied and beautiful. Order before 2pm on a weekday and they will even ship out your order on that day!

So, what do I think of Max Factor Colour Adapt in Natural Sand

The Max Factor Colour Adapt Foundation works by adapting to your skin tone, offering a ‘flawless look that’s perfectly beautiful and perfectly you’. As our skin is not always the same tone it works by reflecting pigmentations to blend away any of your imperfections and leave you glowing.

It dispenses as a liquid but has a mouse like feel on application, leaving my skin feeling soft and fully covered. Although I have quite clear skin, it can sometimes get a little dry in the winter months or when I have been lacking a proper facial moisturisation routine.

This is why I opt for liquid foundation and Max Factor in particular, it is fabulous for all skin types! Be it oily, dry or combination so it really suits everyone!

Now all you have to do for flawless skin is grab your desired colour!

What is your favourite foundation? Have you tried Max Factor Colour Adapt?

Soap & Glory Fabulipstick

Soap & Glory Fabulipstick in Perfect Day review

I have always adored Soap and Glory products and have used them for numerous years, stocking up madly at Christmas time on all their gorgeous limited edition boxes.

When I discovered that Soap and Glory had really worked on their cosmetic range I was desperate to try some of their new products. I chose the collagen boosting, super-colour Fabulipstick in Perfect Day*.

The packaging a mix of pretty pink and cheeky black, a 1950’s British pin up boldly clutching onto her oversized prize (Fabulipstick of course!). The casing is black with pink print, the body gold as you remove the lid, a very glamorous looking item. What I noticed instantly was the delicious smell, probably down to the addition of shea and monoi butter.

So, what did I think of the Soap & Glory Fabulipstick in Perfect Day?

It has a creamy matte texture yet applies like a dream, with a luxuriously rich dark beige colour and a warm rosy pink finish. It is one of those shades that works day and night, utterly versatile and extremely wearable, with enough oomph to make a bold impact in the evening. I think the shade would compliment any skin tone and managed to look good on someone with one as pale as mine.

I found the lipstick really did make my lips look plumper. However, I am not entirely sure if it was down to the collagen boosting ingredients or the amazing colour!
I can only put the moisturisation and long-lasting nature of the colour down to the vitamin E in the Fabulipstick. After a few days of wear my lips continued to feel in a great condition with a lovely softness.
The colour of the lipstick is just perfect, a staple shade for any lipstick lover. It is long lasting, offering colour for hours and a subtle shine. The Fabulipstick is also available in the shades Naked Beige and Red My Lips, here is to hoping they bring out more!

Soap and Glory products are only available from Boots online or retail stores and the Fabulipstick costs only £9! Get your hands on one now, your pout will love you for it!

MyMix Foundation in Fair01

MyFace Cosmetics MyMix Foundation in Fair01 review

I find foundation to be the most basic and important product in any beauty regime, it can really make or break a look.

First step is to find the right colour for you. This is something I often struggle with, it would genuinely shock you the amount of money I have wasted with my naivety when on the hunt for the perfect foundation. The next step is deciding the type of foundation you want, be it liquid, powder of mouse. I opt for liquid, finding it to working better on my normal/dry skin.
I decided to try out MyFace Cosmetics MyMix Foundation in Fair01*. MyFace Cosmetics work via a simple and effective system when it comes to their products, placing them into one of three categories: fair, medium and medium/dark. With this in mind, they use well-known celebrities to give you an understanding of what tiers (labeled from 1 to 3, the latter being the darkest) you fall into within the category. I found this extremely helpful, matching my skin tone (Fair01) to the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Emma Watson in seconds.
I found the contents to be quite fluid and this was rather frustrating. This in mind, I applied the foundation using my finger tips and my well-loved ‘dot’ method (I shall show this one day!) and the coverage was lovely. It felt like a second skin with its matt finish and clean smell. After a day of wear it was still firmly on, and my skin looked bright and felt wonderfully smooth. I was amazed that it had not dried it out and left my face feeling hydrated.

So, did MyFace Cosmetics MyMix Foundation in Fair01 offer the healthy glow they promised?

My answer is yes!This is the perfect foundation for normal/dry/combination skin tones (I find liquid foundations on oily skin tend to wear off quickly but it may work with a primer). However, the ‘colour-correcting formula’ can only go so far. I believe the product to sufficiently reduce redness but am doubtful as to whether it would work as an entire cover up on acne prone skin.

I also adored the colour match method, it is as flawless as the foundation and guarantees a perfect match every time! The packaging is also a bonus, the tube is sleek, making it easy to slip into the smallest of bags. With impressive coverage and delightful texture, there is no need to worry about top ups!
You will feel the fairest of them all! If you are as pale as me that is…

they are real benefit mascara

A They’re Real! Mascara by Benefit review

They’re Real! Mascara by Benefit is a miracle worker. Benefit is famous for its flawless array of cosmetics. I myself probably own about a 1/4 of this season’s collection!

They’re Real! mascara however, goes way beyond my original expectations. I suffer from ridiculously short lashes, but with the introduction of this little beauty, the worry is no more. Just take a peek at the pictures within this post (hey I know my lashes are a tad clumpy but I am a writer, not a makeup expert!), I find the results rather amazing!

The mascara is jet black, aiding the brush for a dramatic finish as it lengthens and lifts the lashes. The brush itself is designed with a rounded and larger tip, enabling you to also use it vertically on the individual lashes, adding volume as you go.

So, what did I think of the They’re Real! Mascara by Benefit?

The strong and spaced bristles separate the lashes as you sweep up to your desired look.Horizontally, the brush is to be used in a zig-zag motion to aid the final look. I myself find the less traditional vertical method works wonders.

Beware however, that this makeup miracle is not entirely waterproof and definitely not something to wear if you plan on seeing a sad movie with the boyfriend.

On the plus If you buy this today from Benefits official website, your They’re Real! purchase will be accompanied by a free travel sized version for only £20.50! Although pricier than the average mascara you get guaranteed quality every time. Making They’re Real! a must for any makeup enthusiast who desires luscious lashes.

What do you think of the They’re Real Mascara by Benefit? Do you already own it?
