That won’t go to waste.
I’ve tried filming a makeup tutorial in which I used a few new products I’ve received.
I set up two cameras, one of which looked great and sharp, but the other one had a broken lens and I didn’t realise it – it wasn’t able to focus on what I was doing – resulting in unusable footage.
I’ve thought about saving the video, using the clips from my steady camera, even if a bit far away from my face, but after editing the whole thing, I figured just doing a blog post – since I wasn’t completely happy with it – would be a better option.
So here I am, talking about some makeup I’ve tested out!
About a month ago I was sent these palettes by a company called Bad Habit.
The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous packaging, but soon enough I started using the eyeshadow palettes, especially the Inferno one.
The colours make complete sense with the name, as they are all deep reds and flaming shades. I love it! Look at the metallics, they are so intense.
I haven’t yet tested out the highlighting palettes, but wanted to show them as they look so pretty.
The colours are very pigmented, and they are all shades I usually go for anyway, since I’ve dyed my hair pink – so I’m very happy to be owning these palettes!
Another product I’ve been loving is the Bisou Bisou Lip & Cheeck Stick – a collaboration between Make Beauty and my friend LaMadelynn.
If you haven’t seen her short movie introducing it, definitely take a look!
It’s a beautiful brown shade with a slight tint of red in it, so it’s the perfect colour to double up as blush and lipstick.
It’s very easy to blend, and you can build it up for more intense looks.
I personally love dotting this across my lips and using my finger to work it in.
The next product I’m showing up is another stick, this time from Hourglass.
You may recognise the packaging format, as I’ve talked about their foundation (which comes in identical packaging, just brown) and how much I love it.
They sent me all the shades, but my personal favourite is this golden one.
It looks blinding, but you will be surprised at how easily and beautifully it blends into your skin.
Final makeup product to cover is this EX1 Delete Fluide concealer.
This little thing doesn’t play around: the consistency is thicker than what I generally go for, but it has such a high coverage that you really need the smallest amount, so it makes up for the fact that comes in a small tube, and even the thicker consistency doesn’t feel too much on your skin, as long as you blend it properly.
I would not recommend this for an everyday use, but if you are looking to cover some intense redness, spots, or overall need a flawless look for a certain occasion, this may be what you wanna reach for.
Finally, I was sent a bunch of sunglasses by this brand called Topfoxx.
