KOREAN BEAUTY 3CE – Stylenanda Duo Cover Crayon

KOREAN BEAUTY 3CE – Stylenanda Duo Cover Crayon

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about Vely Vely Lipstick in Red Rouge. This is the Stylenanda Duo Cover Crayon* from 3CE, this one is shade #04 which has been created to highlight and contour. I have to admit I find something comforting and satisfying about a crayon I think it’s because they’re chunkier than a pencil and feel sturdy in the hand. This crayon is dual-purpose and has a product at either end. One is a dark beige concealer ideal for covering small blemishes or the under-eye area, or for contouring small areas, as you can apply it straight...

KOREAN BEAUTY Too Cool For School – Artclass by Rodin

KOREAN BEAUTY Too Cool For School – Artclass by Rodin

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. This is the second month that I have taken part, a couple of the previous items that I reviewed in July were Too Cool For School Hot Girl Lash and May Coop Raw Sauce. Today I am talking about the fabulous Artclass By Rodin* contouring powder compact from Too Cool For School. This is the second product that I’ve tried from this brand and it’s fast becoming one of my favourite Korean beauty brands. Rodin was a French sculptor who lived between 1840 and 1917. I’m not too sure what he’d have thought about having his name put to a make-up product, but I can see why...

Zuzka Natural Beauty – Skincare Selection

Zuzka Natural Beauty – Skincare Selection

The name “Zuzka”  is slovakian for Susan, and Zuzka Natural Beauty was named by owner Susan Kohutova inspired by her Slovakian husband. Medical research shows that significant amounts of cosmetic ingredients (including some carcinogenic substances) penetrate the skin & end up in the blood stream – with this in mind, only certified organic herbs, plants & flowers free from pesticides & chemicals are used in Zuzka cosmetics. They are also free from harsh detergents, sodium lauryl sulphate, synthetic ingredients, parabens, animal ingredients or artificial fragrance. I was sent three Zuzka skincare products to try – Organic Precious Oil, Coconut Cream Cleanser and Cool Blue Contour Day Cream.     Organic Precious Oil Created for oily/problematic skin Organic Precious Oil contains calendula, soya & jojoba oils blended with organic essential oils including lavender, tea tree & lemongrass. The citrusy scent of the lemongrass really comes through, it smells divine and warming. I have combination skin with an oily chin and nose and I regularly suffer with spots and blemishes. I’ve been applying...

Sleek – Face Form Contour Palette

Sleek – Face Form Contour Palette

Contouring is big news at the moment in the make-up world and I love looking at ‘before and after’ pictures on Pinterest and Instagram. If you’re new to contouring then you might be interested in the Face Form palette from Sleek. I was actually looking to buy Sleek’s Face Contour Kit palette which is similar to this but doesn’t include a blush, so I went for this Face Form instead. I really love Sleek make-up and have recently reviewed their iDivine Palette in Storm and Blush by 3 in Pink Lemonade, both of which I can highly recommend. The Face Form palette contains 3 pressed powders of equal sizes, a dark contour powder, a pale highlighting contour powder and a blush. The dark contour powder is really nice, it’s a subtle matt bronze colour with no hint of shimmer and it works really well when blended under the cheekbones or around the contour of the forehead. Unfortunately I find the pale highlighting shade too shimmery and it leaves the...
