The new way to get Fuller lips without injections thanks to Benefit Cosmetics!

FullSizeRender

With the launch of Benefit Cosmetic’s new extension to the ‘They’re Real’ line, with the latest addition to tackle all bases of the lips!

So to start off, the packaging of this new lippie is super cute, and I love that this is the same shiny, titanium-like packaging that matches the They’re Real Liner and Mascaras! What I love about Benefit isn’t just their amazing philosophy and they’re fun nature towards life, but also howΒ innovative their products are made.

The lipstick bullet is retractable just like all the other ones in the market. The unique thing about this lipstick though, is that it has TWO colours in each bullet! This makes an amazing subtle ombre look on the lips in just one simple swipe! Now you’ll never have to buy two shades of lipstick to create an ombre effect. Who else has the problem of not knowing what two shades match to create that look too? I think this lipstick solves those problems for you too.

Another unique point about this lipstick is that it has a ‘custom teardrop tip’ which is easy to use, and I definitely found that it was easy to apply and the formula of the lipstick was creamy and pigmented, finishing off to a demi-matte, subtle shine finish. I love the finish off this lipstick too, as it helps for anyone wanting to achieve that ‘full lip’ look, since it’ll help to reflect the light and create the illusion of fuller lips!

With the product stating on the packaging that it contains a ‘lipstick and liner’ in one, I personally feel it does deliver on that since the longwear and staying power of this formula is incredible! Even these swatches I did for this blogpost were difficult to get rid of with micellar water!

It’s so funny because anyone who knows me, knows I’m more of a pink or red lip kinda girl (lets just say, pretty standard basic colours) and so I hardly ever experiment with wearing oranges or bright cool undertone corals and reds. On applying the shade in this blogpostΒ (Flame Game) I am so impressed! I really love the colour and I definitely feel like this shade is a lot more everyday wear than first anticipated.

Final thoughts on this new range of lipsticks is that it get’s my approval! If you’re after something fast and easy, and want to naturally enhance your lips definitely try the Double the Lip Lippies from Benefit Cosmetics!

3 star products from Marc Jacobs Beauty

For anyone who’s unfamiliar with the Marc Jacobs, (I highly doubt there’s many of you) he’s a fashion designer, has an incredible line of fragrances and also does amazing beauty products!

Those who’d like to find some new favourites or even just beginning their journey with Marc Jacobs beauty, here’s the top 3 buys from his endlessly sleek collection of beauty products.

Le Marc Lip Creme Lipsticks

With an incredible non-drying formula, this lipstick is a must have in any makeup lover’s bag! There’s so many shades to choose from so everyone will be happy with their perfect shade and undertone. These lippies last all day, with minimal touch up and because they’re such low maintenance, they’re perfect for on-the-go application. With a magnetic closure cap, you’ll be happy to open your bag and not be surprised by an unpleasant lipstick open inside! My favourite shade would definitely have to be ‘Infamous’ number 228.

#Instamarc Might filtering Contour Powder

Now if you’re a fan of contouring and sculpting the face, but hate the fact that those usual contouring palettes have so many confusing shades, you’ll love this little beauty. With only 2 shades, one for highlighting and one for contouring, you’ll get no wastage of shades that you won’t use, and the powders are in such a slim and low profile compact that it’ll fit in even the fullest makeup drawers. This product comes in 3 different levels of tones, but my favourite for anyone who has a warm, light-medium skin-tone is the number ’40’, it’s got the perfect banana toned highlight and a natural cool-tones contour shade. Another winner about this palette is that it’s got a super large mirror to do an entire makeup routine and see your entire face for all the details!

Fineliner Ultra Skinny Gel Eye Crayon

Who loves wearing eyeliner but hates when it ends up on the bottom of your eye almost making you look like you haven’t slept in 10 years!? This handy little liner will stay on all night through sweaty dancefloors, or just through a stressful summer’s day at work! The fine-line point on this gel cream eyeliner is super helpful to get a precise wing or line on the lids, or even the waterline. This formula allows you to achieve a smudged look if you smudge within 5 seconds of applying and once the 5 seconds is over, you’re set for the day (or night!). The packaging element is awesome as it’s a retractable pen and you won’t be caught short without a sharpener.
