Beauty // Review: NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Fill & Fluff

by , in
Hey lovelies,

Better late than never for a new post, right? well, I'm back with a whole heap of new beauty recommendations. 
NYX - Fill & Fluff Eyebrow Pomade Pencil. RRP: £10.00

I've been on the hunt for the few past years for the perfect eyebrow product. Boy Brow by Glossier is also one of my all time faves but having to continuously order a new bottle every time, just wasn't convenient for me.

Whilst browsing in Boots a few weeks ago, I came across this product in the NYX aisle. It's available in 8 different shades in Ash Brown, Auburn, Black, Blonde, Brunette, Chocolate, Espresso and Taupe. It's actually quite refreshing to find a product that's darkest shade is actually black. I personally think my face better suits dark eyebrows rather than a dark brown. It's actually quite rare to find a high street brand that's eyebrow products shade range goes up to black.

It's dual ended, with a pomade pencil on one side and a brush for blending on the flip side. I'm already on my second one, which shows just how much I love it! I think it's super easy to use and leaves your eyebrows looking professionally done.

Pros:
  • Easy to use to create immaculate looking brows
  • A variety of shades
  • Great formula
Cons:
  • Product runs out quite fast
  • Can smudge a bit
Overall score: 5/5
What's your favourite eyebrow product?

Beauty // Review: Primark Beauty Lipsticks Review

by , in
Hey lovelies,
   
I guess I'm a blogger again? hello and welcome to my blog. I'm Vanese a 24 Londoner and I've been blogging on and off since 2012. I kind of fell out of love with blogging and got busy trying to figure out proper adult life after uni. However, the past few weeks I just couldn't help but notice that there was such a lack on platforms giving suggestions to WOC on beauty products. 

I have always been a beauty lover and I seem to accumulate so many beauty products every year, so I really wanted to create my little space on the internet that could potentially help other women looking for great beauty recommendations. 
PS... Vintage Rose £1.50
PS... Naked Flame £1.50

I am literally such a fan girl for anything and EVERYTHING Primark. I've had a few of their beauty products over the years but I'd say the last year or so Primark's PS... beauty section has really come thruuu. The prices and the quality of the products I've tried have truly been amazing.

I picked up these two shades whilst picking up some last minute holiday essentials. I'm actually quite surprised at just how much I've used these. As you can see, I've used Vintage Rose a heck of a lot and Naked Flame only once, I just find that Vintage Rose went a lot more better with my makeup looks, which is usually a bold pink look. It's weird to me because when I was around 16-18 I enjoyed spending my weekly college money on makeup, I'd always try to save for brands like MAC because I thought the higher the price, the better quality. Ha, I remember when I got my first job in my first year of uni and spent £26 on a Chanel lipstick that was so overpriced and just not that great. However, nowadays I live for Primark, Revolution, NYX and Fenty Beauty... just to name a few. I've realised it's not about the price but the actual formula itself.

These were such a steal for £1.50 and I also got two lip liners to go with my shades too. The lip liners are so creamy and just glide on so beautifully. I can feel that big things are coming for Primark! So, my overall thoughts? I would rate these 9/10. My reasoning is because they feel just as great as high end brands I've tried. I wasn't really sure what to expect when I picked them up but they've given me the urge to do an ultimate PS... splurge. The only criticism I could give is that they are meant to be matte but the formula isn't that matte. I usually test this theory by kissing my boyfriend when we part ways to work (l o l) on the occasions I've worn one of these shades, my boyfriend ends up with a fade of rosy lips.

Have you tried any products from the PS... range?
