There’s no better feeling than coming home to a parcel you weren’t expecting for a while! That’s exactly what happened on Wednesday after a long day at college. A few weeks ago I was contacted by Born Pretty who asked if I would like to try a couple of products, and obviously I jumped at the chance. Their site is a treasure trove of affordable makeup and has literally everything you could want all in one place. I’m tempted to order some of their nail stamping plates, nail wraps and transfers because I just can’t do my nails nicely at the moment!
If you have been reading MissCosmeticBlogger for a while you will know my love, (and sometimes hate,) when it comes to winged liner. I am always on the hunt for a new eyeliner, one that is darker, lasts longer and makes applying easier than ever. I was so happy to see that Born Pretty had a Lomeou Extremely Thin Eyeliner Pen*, a brand which I have not heard anything about before. The packaging is extremely cute; pastel pink, and about the size of a thin pen, so easily held whilst applying I imagine. The product itself is jet black in colour, the nib is extremely fine and produces the thinnest line which I think would be great for graphic eyeliner, cobwebs for Halloween anyone? Also it will not break the bank at only $4.07 (so around £2.69) definitely a budget buy.
Apologies for the lack of lip swatches, dry skin problems and all that jazz! The second thing I got to choose was the YAZINE Pure Color Lubric Lip Gloss*, I chose shade 4 which I thought was a darker red than it turned out to be. It’s actually a gorgeous hot pink, and a lip balm not a gloss, well it’s kind of both. The pigmentation is phenomenal, one swipe and bam there it is. It also feels really moisturising on the lips which is a bonus for those of us, like myself, get really dry lips. As for the packaging, it’s cute again, little flowers all around the tube. What’s even better is that it’s another affordable product: $3.99 (£2.64) for a lip balm with so much colour it’s great!
All in all for the price these are good products, no complaints really on my part, other than do your research on the colours; they might not be exactly as they look on the website!
