This week we’re loving three new beauty buys which have become staples in our morning makeup regime: an eye illuminating duo pencil, the most amazing cheapie mascara and a better-than-Botox lip plumper!
Face of Australia Impact Curl Mascara, RRP $11.95.
I can never resist a new cheapie mascara, especially one that promises curl and volume! Face of Australia have come up with such an amazing product, it’s replaced by favourite expensive brand as my go-to mascara of choice!
It’s all in the rubber brush, which pulls the lashes out and coats them in a super-rich pigment. Lashes never clump and the curl stays all day. I can’t remember the last time I used my eyelash curler!
Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Eye-Illuminating Duo, RRP $35.50
It’s no secret I am obsessed with Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. I used their makeup at my wedding and have been raving to friends about how amazing the quality of their cosmetics are. So just imagine how excited I was to hear about their latest product, the Eye-Illuminating Duo.
I’ve tried eye brightening pencils before but most just leave me looking even more haggard, with chunky pieces of white glitter around my eyes. Not so with this multi-purpose pencil: one side is matte, which when used on the waterline makes you look instantly refreshed (and even erases evidence of a hangover). The shimmer side is the perfect champagne-nude shade, which I love to dot on the inner eye and under the brow: trust me, this is every makeup artists’ best-kept secret. It’s amazing how much it completes your whole makeup! The formula contains mango seed oil and macadamia nut oil so the pencil never tugs on the delicate eye area, plus like all Youngblood products it’s paraben-free which we love!
Napoleon Love Bite Lip Plump, RRP $28.00.
Oh Napoleon, how do I love thee. You just keep creating all these amazing products, and Love Bite Lip Plump is one of my favourites. This super smooth lip plumper goes on clear with a lovely gloss and right before your eyes, pumps up the volume in your lips. The cinnamon and capsicum pepper stimulate your lips and leave you with a natural, plumped effect. Seriously, who needs Botox?
