What I Use For My Brows/ REVIEW: Cosmopolitan Eyebrow Styling Kit

I got this little Cosmopolitan brow palette from feelunique.com a while ago. I really had love-hate relationship with it. First I didn’t like it – the stencils didn’t work for my brow shape/face, I hated the quality of the brush – soooooooo cheap looking. Also the eyeshadows looked too shimmery and not pigmented at all. However, after a while I decided to give it another try. I must say it’s okay if you use a better brush. What I like, when you do your brows the shimmer disappears and everything looks matte. I usually use the darker color for the ‘inner’ parts of my brows, and then for the ‘brow tail’ I apply a nice matte chocolate brown from my Sephora palette.
To sum it up, it’s an okay brow palette for around $10, but you’ll need to buy a proper brush. Also if you have darker hair/brows, this stuff is not for you – the colors are not too pigmented. But if you are blond, this palette will probably match your eyebrow shade.

Hello ladies,

Speaking about Spring 2013 makeup trends, you can definitely notice how fresh and nice the skin of models on the catwalk is. And it’s very achievable too! Just pick your favourite natural finish foundation ( I am really liking Maybelline’s 24h foundation at the moment), and don’t forget about blush! Corals and pinks are huuuuuuuugeee this season. You can find a beautiful coral/peach blush at MAC (‘Peaches’ is lovely) and obviously ‘Coralista’ by Benefit. As for pinks, lovely satin finish pink, I recommend MAC’s ‘Well Dressed’, or a more affordable version by Rimmel in 020 ‘Pink Rose’.

Another spring trend, both makeup and fashion-wise, is bright colors. In Makeup, you can choose between lovely bright lipsticks, or add a little bit of bold color to your eye makeup.

I love these eye makeup looks! They are bold but still very subtle. Also I like simple smokey eye on the lid with a bit of sparkly green/blue eyeshadow on the lower lash line.

For bright spring lipsticks definitely try out Rimmel’s Kate Spring Collection. The colors are vibrant and the product is amazing.

Also, if you are looking for a dupe for YSL lip stains, try these babies

Hohestly, Rimmel makeup is very good quality for a very affordable price.

And finally, lashes and brows. Make them fuller and bigger this spring. Try to pull off the famous ‘cara delevigne’ brows and thick flirty lashes.

Hope you guys enjoyed

Hello ladies,

Just a quick post on 3 makeup items I got on Friday. Super excited about these!!!

First of all, I got a new concealer. It’s from Garnier and it works amazingly for the under eye area. I feel like most concelers are perfect for hiding blemishes and other skin imperfections, but are not that good for eye circles, but the Garnier one is perfect for delicate skin and is a great moisturiser too! It’s around $10 in Watson’s, or check out any other drugstore.

The other 2 items I purchased from feelunique.comĀ  and they are amazing!

Have you guys heard that Cosmopolitan came up with this lovely brow kit? It’s not too big, like some other brow kits, includes tweezers, little brush (which is not very good quality and I don’t use it), highlighting pencil, 2 eyeshadows for defining your brows, brow wax, little mirror and 3 brow stencils. It was $14 and I think it’s a lovely product for the price.

And finally, a new blush from Rimmel. This is sooooooo cute! Honestly, Rimmel products are so good for a ridiculously affordable price. The blush was only $7 btw

Okay, so it’s a lovely peachy pink color. It’s not exactly matte, it has a very subtle shimmer to it, which I love. It’s in color ‘Pink Rose’.
