Billion Dollar Brows – First Impressions & Review

Billion Dollar Brows are a company I’ve only just recently heard of.  They have recently started selling their products in Boots. When I saw their brow kits I wanted to try them out as I have been trying to find brow products to create the perfect brow.

Both of these kits are handy and have all the products and tools you need to help create the perfect brow!

Eyebrows are one of the most important features of our faces – and yet they are often the most neglected.
We believe that beautiful brows are a right, not a privilege. Our products are priced fairly so that you don’t have to break the bank to have Billion Dollar Brows.

Billion Dollar Brows – Best Seller Kit

The first brow kit contains all 5 brow products which help you create the perfect brow!

1) Universal Brow Pencil: Formulated to work beautifully with most skin tones and hair colors, this amazing eyebrow pencil goes on smooth and natural. It never needs sharpening and comes complete with a spoolie brush for effortless blending and a perfect finish.

This brow duo is so easy to use and because its both on one applicator it makes it easier to switch from the pencil to the spoolie. The brow pencil matches my brows perfectly and helps you create the perfect brow and also helps you to create a thicker brow.

2) Brow Duo Pencil: Highlights your brow bone to add gorgeous definition and warmth while providing instant visual lift. The highlighter works with every skin tone. On the opposite end, is a universal consealer for on-the-go touchups.

This brow duo pencil helps to highlight your brow bone and also the concealer is perfect to use under your eyes or to conceal around your eyebrows.

3) Brow Gel: Our clear brow gel locks in your look, giving your eyebrows a long-lasting, radiant glow while keeping them perfectly in place all day.

I am not the biggest fan of Brow Gels and I have not used one in years, but when I tried this product out it helped hold my brows into place all day and did not make my eyebrows look wet or make my brows go hard.

4) Smudge Brush: This flat, synthetic brush is the ideal mate for applying creamy cosmetics like our Brow Duo Pencil.

This smudge brush works perfect with the Duo Brow Pencil. It helps to blend everything into place. The brush is soft and not harsh on your skin.

All together this kit was easy to use and all the products helped to pull together the perfect brow in little time and effort.

I think this kit is perfect high end kit if you love doing your eyebrows and like Gels and Pencils, It would also make a great gift to someone who is starting out in makeup!

This set costs £49.50 and you can find it online here.

The vegan friendly Taupe formula is made for most light and dark brunettes. For a quick touchup, dab the powder and glide along your brow line with our angled brush and blend with spoolie brush for beautiful brows.

How To use:
For a quick touchup, dab the powder and glide along your brow line with our angled brush and blend with spoolie brush for beautiful brows

This Kit is so quick and easy to use!
I brush my brows out with the spoolie brush and then go in with the powder and the angled brow brush to fill in my brows. I then use the spoolie again to brush out my brows and to make sure everything is blended.

The brush is my favourite as you have the two applicators you need in one! The brush is the right size to help you fill in your brows and its so gentle on your skin.

The eyebrow powder is the perfect colour, at first I thought the powder would be too dark for me but it blends in with my hair colour and makes my brows look natural!

I have been using this every day for the past week and it has given me natural looking eyebrows that take less then 2 minutes to create! What I’ve loved the most is my friends and others complimenting my brows!
I think this kit would also make a good present for someone.

This fantastic Kit is £24.00 and you can find it online here.

These are my brows filled in with the Taupe eyebrow powder, as you can see it helps to fill them it to make them appear thicker while still looking natural. I also set them with the Brow Gel.

I have had compliments off my friends on my brows and how natural they look. I have been using these products on rotation for around 1 week now and they have found a place in my every day makeup back. I was quite pleased with the quality with these products and how well they work.

For more information about these products and this brand visit their website www.billiondollarbrows.com to also see their other eyebrow products click this link . I have my eye on their Brow Boost as I have heard so many amazing reviews on them!

Out of the two, my favourite is the 60 seconds to beautiful brows. It is the perfect little kit for your eyebrows without any fuss. It’s worth the price and all the products are high quality.

Have you tried any of these products out? What is your favourite?

Maybelline Master Ink & Brow Satin |Review

Maybelline Master Ink & Brow Satin | Review

IMG_2681

I purchased these two products in Superdrug two weeks ago. In those two weeks since purchasing I have tried and tested these two products and they have found a place into my makeup bag.
I wanted to try out a new eyebrow product and came across the Maybelline eyebrow product range.
I then also decided to try out their liquid eyeliner and picked up the Master Ink.

Maybelline Brow Satin

‘Get natural looking full brows, with our new brow duo.’

I decided to get the Brow Satin because it has a pencil at one end and a powder at the other.
So you get two products in one that work well together.

First I use the pencil side to lightly fill in any sparse areas of my brow. Then I go in with the powder to help blend the products together to give a more natural look to my eyebrows. I love the colour range of this product as the shade I chose ‘Medium Brown’ blends in with my natural brow colour perfectly. It also lasts throughout the day and does not fade.

The pencil is not hard or harsh on the brows and you can easily blend or wipe it away without any fuss. The powder applicator is the right size for filling in the brows. You can slowly build up however much product you want, so you can have a natural brow look or a more defined look.

Do I think this is worth the money? Definitely.

It might not be everyone’s go to Eyebrow product, But I like it a lot and think its worth the money.

This product is £5.99 and you can find it here.

Maybelline Master Ink

‘Introducing Master Ink Liquid Eyeliner. Our first liquid liner with a Smart Tip brush for easy to draw, no mess lines with black carbon pigments for deep black intensity. Smudgeproof, Longwear formula. Available in 3 shades; Matte, Satin & Glitter’

This eyeliner has become my favourite daily eyeliner.

I am a big fan of this eyeliner tip. So when I opened it in the shop I knew I wanted to buy it.
This long thin tip makes it SO easy to apply eyeliner to your lid. You can make your eyeliner as thick or thin as you want.

This product is also perfect if you like doing a winged eyeliner look. In the morning I can quickly do my eyeliner without no hassle and quickly get out the door without having to keep wiping my mistakes away and reapplying.  This eyeliner also does not crease or spilt throughout the day. It stays on until you want it to come off.

I don’t have much to say about this product apart from that I really like it and I highly recommend it.

Do I think it’s worth the money? Yes!
I think its such a good, hassle free eyeliner that anyone can use.

This product is £4.99 and you can find it here.

There’s currently a ‘Buy one get the second half price’ On these two Maybelline products In Boots.

Have you tried these products? What’s your opinion on them?

H&M Beauty | First Impressions & Review

H&M Beauty | First Impressions & Review

IMG_2634

If you know me, you know I’m a HUGE fan of H&M and whenever I buy clothes 90% are from this shop.
So when I found out they had brought out a Beauty range I grabbed my laptop and made an order.

If I’m honest I am quite surprised with the range of beauty items they have brought out. I was expecting just some nail polish and lipsticks but they literally have EVERYTHING you will need for a full face of make up, pamper items and shower/bath essentials. They also have make-up brushes, perfume and make-up bags!
What more could you ask for.

On the site they even have little videos to show you how to apply the makeup and what makeup looks you can create. I liked this as if your new to make-up or not as confident wearing/applying it, it helps you step by step on how to apply it and a few tips and tricks.

IMG_2630

I didn’t buy a lot as my nearest store is in Liverpool which is a long train ride away and I didn’t have the time to go and test them out. So I bought some bits on the online site I knew I would like.

I have had this package for a week now and wanted to make sure I tested these products out before putting up this review so it was 100% honest.

Nail Polish | Russet Spice

I love the packaging of the Nail polishes and the colour range! There are so colours and shades to choose from, I ended up getting this Coppery Orange colour as we are getting closer to winter and I thought it would be a nice winter colour.

The colour is so pigmented and looks lovely in every light! It has a slight glittery shimmer to it which makes it look even nicer in the sun.

It stayed on my nails for around 6 days before chipping and that was without a top coat! I was impressed.

The only thing I don’t like about this Nail Polish is the brush. The brush is quite big and the brush bristles aren’t all together. But I can’t really complain as it’s cheaper than a lot of nail polishes.

The Nail Polishes range from £3.99 – £4.99

Eyebrow Kit | Caramel

I’ve been looking for a powder eyebrow kit for a while now but haven’t found one I really liked. I purchased a shade lighter by accident but it still blends in with my eyebrows and looks a lot more natural.

This kit is compact and easy to carry around with you, It also comes with two eyebrow colours (A light one and a darker one) and a wax to set your brows into place. The powder isn’t very pigmented but blends into your brows naturally.

The only downside to this Eyebrow kit is it does not come with a brush to apply the powder with. Luckily I have eyebrow brushes, But if you don’t just make sure when you buy this product you also buy an eyebrow brush.

This kit costs £5.99

Lipstick Pencil |  Bonne Vivante

I have been wearing a lot more lipsticks lately so I had a look at the ones H&M did and two caught my eye.

This first was this Lipstick Pencil in the shade Bonne Vivante which is this beautiful your lips but nicer colour! It looks great with pale skin and it also is a perfect shade for day and night!

This Lipstick is defiantly not a pencil it is more of a pigmented chubby stick, it’s very moisturising and pigmented.

I’ve been wearing this for the past few days and its very moisturising on the lips, it’s also very pigmented so you can either build it up or down.

If you are eating and drinking it can rub off your lips quite fast but if you’re not it stays on your lips for a long time without you having to re apply it constantly throughout the day.

The only thing I didn’t like about this product and I would change is that once you’ve used all the lipstick pencil up you can’t twist the bottom to get more. So you only have a certain amount of lip pencil to use before you need to go and repurchase it again.

I was so pleased with this Lipstick Pencil I’m defiantly going to repurchase it and try out their other shades!

This Lipstick Pencil is £4.99

Clinique Haul | My First Clinique Products 2015

IMG_1961

Around two months ago I went to the Clinique in Boots,
I decided to try out some of their products as heard a lot of good things about their skin care range.

IMG_1962

Clinique – Instant Lift for Brows

My first purchase was the ‘Instant Lift for Brows’. My eyebrows are very sparse and I wanted an eyebrow product that would help make them appear thicker and also add a little bit of definition to them.

The lovely lady at the Clinique counter did a free demonstration with the product for me and filled in my eyebrows and showed me how to apply the product and how to set the eyebrows in place. As I hardly ever touch my eyebrows I found this very helpful and she also helped choose out the right shade for me. I don’t use the highlighter on the other end of this product as I prefer the look without it.

What I love about this is that you can either use a lot of product to make your eyebrows thicker and darker or a little to just fill them in.

If you are looking for a good eyebrow product and you don’t like eyebrow powders I would highly recommend this product.

This product is £16 and you can find it here.
