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...

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...

Benefit – Girl Meets Pearl

Benefit – Girl Meets Pearl

Benefit decsribes Girl Meets Pearl as ‘liquid pearl for the face’, it’s basically a liquid highlighter that can be used on cheeks or all over the face for a dewy glow. I love Benefit products, their packaging and product names are really quirky and they develop such innovative products, not to mention their amazing handbag-sized boxed collections of their best-sellers. Girl Meets Pearl can be worn on its own to give a delicate luminous pearlessence, or it can be worn over make-up for a subtle dewy glow. To dispense the product just remove the lid then twist the end of the tube and the product comes up through the little holes at the end of tube – then pat it gently onto your skin with your fingers. You should only dispense a little at a time as less is most definitely more with this product – you don’t want to end up with a face like a shiny oil slick! I like to wear Girl Meets Pearl over my...
