Magicosmetix Makeup Haul!

Check out my review on the various products below! Brushes & Tools 1. Magic Tips I saw so many MUA’s use this on social media and was so excited to try it out.

Makeup brushes are one of the best beauty investments one can have. Sedona Lace’s 13-piece makeup brush set: The Vortex Collection is exclusively designed by Renelyn Monteloyola of Makeup by Ren Ren for Sedona Lace.

Too Faced launches New Melted Matte Lipsticks!

  Too Faced have really outdone themselves with their new Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick for Spring 2016. The matte lipstick ensures that your lip colour always looks rich and never dry, shrivelled, or cracked, which for a matte lipstick is one of the hardest things to do! The formula keeps to its word of promising long-lasting effects, which is true as mine stayed on flawlessly for roughly 7-8 hours before I had to retouch it. The lipsticks are infused with Volulip for a no-sting plumping effect, making your lips look fuller. It also has antioxidant-rich avocado oil and vitamin E to moisturise your...
