This is Mac's paint pot and it's one of my favourite primer that i use for the eyes. It's a highly pigmented eye colour base used under eyeshadows to help the colours more vibrant and longlasting. The formula is cream based and is quite thick, it goes on creamy when applied and then dries to give a hard finish, this help your shadows stay put on the eyelids especially powder shadows as they adhere better. This shade is called Soft Ochre and Mac describes it as a yellow beige, it suits me perfectly and also my clients with yellow undertone. When applied properly, eyeshadows can last anywhere between 6-9 hours, mine last all day without any creasing or fading and i always keep the lid on tight to avoid it drying out.
I usually apply my Urban Decay primer potion most times before i apply this on top (mostly on brides), this helps conceal any redness, vein and oil on the lid. The product is matte, smooth and does'nt have any smell to it, i do advice however that you apply it very fast because it dries out quickly and then it becomes difficult to blend across the lids. I like to apply mine with my finger instead of a brush, this is to warm up the product.
I like the packaging too, it's very simple, sleek and sturdy, it's travel safe as well with minimum space to take (only 5gr), the only fear i have is because it's glass, am often careful not to drop it. Overall i really like the texture and definitely want to pick up some other shades, i highly recommend it because it does what it says and will also last you a long time. The weather has been quite wet and i hope it hasn't affected your shopping especially as this week is set to be the busiest before Christmas, i still have a few things left to buy but i'm been very careful as my wallet is already looking empty and empty and empty. Off to the shop now to place an order for my turkey, i wish you all a stress free week. Toodles, xoxo bynki

Hi guys, today am sharing my thoughts on the Eye Covet Waterproof Eyeliner Set from Anastasia beverly hills brand. It's a mini set pack of eyeliners with seven lovely shades which saves you the stress of having to choose, a holiday season collection, this set saves you alot price wise as one eyeliner alone cost £16 whereas the whole set cost £26, this is one sure covet for Christmas. They measure 0.01oz each and come in both shimmer and matte texture. I wanted to buy the Urban Decay eyeliner holiday set but settled for this to save my wallet and it's probably the best decision i made, they are vibrant colours that i can use on a daily basics to create different looks and i can also keep them in my kit.
They are very easy to use and perfect for travelling as you only need to retract the bottom to apply, that saves you the stress of using a sharpener. They are also smudge proof and tear resistant which is one of the things i look out for when buying eyeliners because i hate messy smudge liner running down my eyes, they last for a very long time especially on the waterline and that's because they are waterproof, they stay put from the minute i apply them, till whenever i decide to take them off. I have noticed that i don't even need primer when i use these liners, they are insanely creamy, highly pigmented and blend effortlessly. Seriously these liners can last well over 9 solid hours without fading and i find myself struggling to take them off even with makeup remover. The packaging is compact and cute with rose gold details against the glossy black finish and they each have their names written on it, it also has a colour shade at the bottom of the pencil to help you easily identify the colours you might need to use. It has 3 matte shades and 4 glittery shades which in my opinion is very pratical, the glitter shades really stands out the most and i believe they will create refreshing looks for any eye. However i realise that the noir shade which is the matte black broke when i tried to use it for the first time, it was very stiff and i found it difficult to use but after a few rub on my palm to create heat, it became soft but was patchy when i used it. That said it's still a quality eyeliner set and i recommend it because it's got great formular and is so worth the price you pay for it. I was actually going to swatch them but i've been so busy running around shopping for Christmas and that has limited my time to blogging (i really apologize for that), hopefully i will do an update on this post with swatches of each eyeliner but this post is to help you decide what gift to get (beauty wise) for that special person in your life. Enjoy and have a great week guys, Toodles. xoxo bynki

Today am reviewing one of my favourite lip balm, the Evolution Of Smooth lip balm. I have always wanted to try these little lip butter ever since i saw them with Kim Kardashian and a few other Hollywood Celebs. It's a lip moisturizer that smooths and softens the lip whilst also treating it at the same time. The pack of these balms are the cutest lip balm i have ever seen, it's an egg shape rubber ball that you can twist to open the cap and apply directly onto your lips saving you the stress of using your finger and it's also safe, hygiene wise. They are 100% natural and do not feel sticky or waxy on my lips when i use them, my lips were soft and did not dry out, it gives a semi matte finish on the lips and is completely sheer. They smell delicious too and are my new found lip primers.
The ingredients are purely shea butter, jojoba oil and Vitamin E which are keys healing factors to soft and chapped free lips. They come in different favours but i got only three favours as they are quite hard to find here in the UK, i got the Honeysuckle Honeydew, Strawberry Sorbet and Summer Fruits Favours. I usually just pick which ever is within my reach and apply, however i did notice that summer fruits seems to hydrate my lips more than the others. The strawberry sorbet has a yummy strawberry flavour that i can even taste it in my mouth, my least favourite was the honeysucker as i didn't really like the flavour. I really recommend them as they left my lips nourished and succulent, they are great and will pass as a great stocking fillers for loved ones this Christmas. Have a lovely weekend and Toodles. xoxo bynki

Hello everyone, what's up? hope you all are fine. I did a little Christmas shopping today to give myself a treat and i got a few of the items on my wishlist. It's fun to shop during Holidays as you get loads and loads of offers and discounts and one is always spoilt for choices. Most of the items i got where on 10% discounts from debenhams, 3 for 2 from boots, half price from beautybay and full price of course from Mac (discount only if you are a pro member). I got the oil free Too faced primer as i like the formula because it's silicone based and well suited to oily skin, i also got the Sleek face kit in medium and dark for my kit, this is a fantastic contour kit and suit virtually every skin colour, also got their lip4 palatte in showgirl. Next on the list is Nars sheer glow foundation, i have always wanted to try this and i wore it today, it looked amazing and was very natural with a medium finish, this is not the foundation for you if you like full coverage as it doesn't cover much but i do like it. I also got the Pro hygiene makeup brush cleaner for my kit, it's antibacterial and has a spray nozzle which makes it easier to use. Then i got the Chanel soleil tan de bronze, ooh i love this product, it gives the most natural bronzed effect ever and i like the brown orangey colour it reflects on the face and i must say it has cherished it's way into my most prized makeup collection existence.
Next is my favourite (i saved the best for last), the Mac brushes, i got the 109 and 159, These brushes have been on my wish list for a long time and i summoned the courage to finally buy them because as we all know Mac brushes are expensive but can last you for ages, so far i am loving them and really enjoy using them as you can see from the pictures that they are a little dirty (pardon me for that), i really want to invest in getting more Mac brushes but am going to take it one step at a time because a full brush kit set from Mac can set you back over £1,000 (that is alot of money, i mean a whole lot). I will be doing a full review on every single one of these products so please stay tuned for that. Enough of me already, how are you guys preping for Christmas? done with your shoppings? I am yet to finish mine (certainly not makeup, hehehe) as i keep changing my mind on what to get and also looking out for the right discount to suit my wallet but i have set up the Christmas tree and addressed my cards. For the makeup/ beauty addict, i hope my gift guide reviews help you decide what to get, i will be reviewing a few more products from Brand's holiday collection and i hope it will inspire you on what to buy. Enjoy the rest of your week and Toddles. xoxo bynki

Hi guys, today's review is on the Anastasia Lavish Set, it's from the famous and raved about Anastasiabeverlyhills lady who is very famous for her brow wiz products
and it's a definitely a delight to review her product. The palette kit is very compact, with a very unique packaging (jungle effect print), a cute cardborad box (like a gift box) with deep depth and removable sleeve top underneath.
This Lavish set includes ten eyeshadows, eyebrow pencil, black eyeliner pencil, a dual ended brush and a full size tweezers. It also comes with a booklet displaying different looks with step by step guide that one can easily recreate and a full on size mirror, it is perfect for travelling to keep you in style.
The eyeshadows are super pretty with the right amount of frost and shimmer (not too over powering). They applied smooth and blended easily, the set has a mixture of matte and shimmer although the matte shades have a bit of powder finish to them, they still deliver because they are nicely pigmented and are also very soft without a single fall out during application. The lasting power is great as well, without primer 5-6 hrs and with primer, it lasted the whole day on me until i took it off. I love almost all the shades as they give a very flawless natural effect to the eyes, my camera didn't pick the names of the shade properly so i'll just name them below-
Inside the palette is another set of tool to complete any look
A Full Size Tweezer
A Mini Brow Pencil
A Blending Brush
A Covet Eyeliner Pencil
I absolutely adore this kit, it has everything a makeup addict would need with neutrals and bold colours for a day to night routine. It's value for money too as you get the whole kit for £26, a fraction of the value price of $118 as the tweezers alone cost $38. i also got the Covet Eye Kit and i haven't tested them out yet hence no review on them but as soon as i try them out, i'll do a review soonest. I'm really happy i have this palette and strongly recommend it, it really is a Lavish kit/set for Christmas. Toodles, xoxo bynki

My Glossy box arrived last week but i've been so busy, i have'nt had time to really review them yet. This is just a quick run down of what's inside this month and i can tell you that i am loving every single one of the items. As usual it comes in a beautifully packed box with black tissue wrap and pink ribbon (Ooh how i love the way it's packed, so feminine and chic), the glossy magazine and product detail card.
Inside the box this month is the following products
A Three pack Idealia Life Serum skincare samples from Vichy
Yves Rocher France cacao and pistachio hand cream
Emite Micronized Eyeshadow in dams
Jelly Pong Pong lip blush in cool red/berry colour
Elegant Touch rapid dry for nails.
This month's box is more like it, better than the Oct box and everything inside looks promising to me as i will be using and testing them all because they are winter essentials to keep skin hydrated and soft in this cold weather. I did use the eyeshadow the same day and i was really impressed, never heard of the Emite brand before but i sure will be checking out more of their products. I also used the handcream because i love my handcreams (i can never have too many) especially at this time of the year, this one smells great too like nuts(i will be doing a review specially for this one). I like the fact that the selections for the box are everygirl's everyday products that one can actually use. I hear the Dec box is in collaboration with Maybelline so am really looking forward to that, hope it impresses me. The total box value is £36.09 and i think GB looks promising so i'll still be subscribing. Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by, Toodles. xoxo bynki
Hi guys, today's review is on another holiday collection from Mac, it's a mineralize skinfinish powder from their 2013 Divine Night Collection and it's called Perfectly Poised. Other colours in the mineralize skinfinsh range are Centre of attention (a pastel pink with pink shimmer) and Scene to be seen (a mauve pink sheen with brick rose gold)
It's a beautiful frosty powder with two colours in one that you can mix together or apply individually, i love this particular powder so much because it's so milled and smooth. Personally this is most pigmented of the whole collection skinfinish as the other colours are quite flacky and chalky.
A lovely bronzed coral colour with golden tones glitters, and a creamy beige with pinkish purple sheen, it feels very warm on my skintone and blends beautifully well too with just a hit of drama, this shade is so pretty and the texture is so refined to highlight imperfections. It did last me the whole day when i used it probably because i had a matte foundation on but it typically last for around 6-7 hrs before it starts to fade, it comes in the regular mac packaging.
Other frostiness in the Divine Night Collection include Mineralize Blush, Mineralise Eyeshadows, Cremesheen Glasses, Lipsticks and Fluidlines. They will make a perfect christmas gift for yourself or to friends and family. How's your Christmas shopping going?? Enjoy your sunday, xoxo bynki

I am so excited about my new Zuca Artist Backpack, it's being on my wishlist for awhile now and u can imagine how happy i am to own it now. I got the backpack one because it's alot cheaper and i can toss it on my back and am set to go. The zuca collection also has another bag called the Zuca Pro Artist Traincase, which is bigger and more expensive than this backpack one, it has a bigger organisation and luggage wheel for easy travel and you can even sit on top. This bag helps me carry all my products and tools and keeps everything super organised, It comes with three clear utility pouches, i like this pouches so much because of the clear top and the label which allows me to see what i have inside.
The bag is sturdy and very light at the same time, it has plenty of side pockets space inside and outsidewith zipper which i mainly use to keep my tools, brushes, bottles, spray, wipes etc. The shoulder straps are so padded, i don't feel any pain when i carry it even for a long period of time. I don't worry about liquid and cream products spilling because the bag is so sturdy and well made, everything inside is safe. I did save to get this bag because the price is a bit hefty at £132, but it's definitely worth it as it is one of my best purchases i have made so far regarding kit and organisation, it looks and feels professional and you can be rest assured that it will last you for a very long time. Zuca.com says it's a bag for hairstylists but i think it serves makeup artist as well. Everyone pro makeup artist i know and look up to owns this backpack and they all say it's worth it and i say same too! Have a great day guys, Toodles. xoxo bynki

I finally got my hands on another talked about brush in makeup world, A four piece kabuki brush set from RC-Comestics, it's a supposed dupe for the popular Sigma kabuki brush set. Almost every review i have seen about this brush says it's even better than the sigma set and the most interesting part is the price, it's $38.95 for the set but currently on sale for $19.95 from the royal care website. The price was too good to be true, i had to jump on the band wagon and i ordered the four piece kabuki set and the four piece eye set in gold details, (it has the set in black detail too), i ordered the brush holder case as well. I have started using them and can now do my own review on them especially because the rave for this brush is mainly centered amongst the American market than here in the UK
Let me start by saying OMG, these brushes are amazing! The face set has four brushes
Pointed kabuki foundation brush
Small kabuki round dome brush
Angled kabubki brush
Flat top kabuki brush
The flat top kabuki brush is the most popular as it has been compared by many to the sigma F80 brush, in my opinion, this one beats sigma hands down. I used it for my liquid foundation and it gave me a flawless finish with very little product, i was abit skeptical but these brushes performed excellently well. They are super soft and very dense, i still can't believe the price for this very quality brush. They look and feel sturdy and the details are intact, i have washed them twice already and no shedding, i was expecting some kind of shedding since i knew there weren't high end brush but they proved me wrong and i can very well say that i am overly impressed and shout out to RC COMESTICS for providing us with high quality brush without the hefty price attached to quality brushes from high end brand. These brushes are perfect because i put them to test for different use just to see if they can serve other purpose other than their suppose use and they delivered.
I also got this leather case brush holder to store the brushes, they look very well made and not cheap at all, you can open them in two to store your brushes at home or pin them together to hold and store your brushes for when you are travelling, they can hold up to 10 brushes. Honestly this case is more than what i expected and i am very happy with it.
In conclusion these brushes are very good, they are really soft and have the same look and quality as sigma, they are feel perfect to the skin, blend very well and are inexpensive. The brand also carry other professional makeup products for the eyes, lips, cheek and face, totally great quality brushes from my personal experience and i will be purchasing more of their products because you really do get good quality for a low price! Toodles. xoxo bynki

Hi guys my review today is on one of the most wanted holiday palettes, it's from Urban Decay and it's called Vice2, it recently launched and i am pleased to have one as i have wanted a bright colour palette for a while now. The packaging for this palette first sold me out, it's a simple purple plastic case with a sleek crystal UD details embossed in the middle, it's very sturdy and the inside has a very large mirror when you open it, also inside is a two sided blending brush, i really like the design, it's uber chic. It has the most beautiful bright shades and will cater to mostly smokey eye looks and to people who like their makeup really loud, when i swatched this shades at the ud counter, they were so smooth and velvety i knew i was getting myself a great product.
The palette contains 20 lovely eyeshadows, all new shades from urban decay, i tell u this shadows are brilliant, they blend effortlessly and have great pigmentation, to me urban decay are simply the best when it comes to eyeshadows. Most of the shades have shimmer and satin texture with only two matte colours inside the palette. My only issue with this palette is the amount of fall outs you get when you apply the shadows and also you will need another palette to get a complete look but overall, it's a really lovely palette to have. The quality is so good, i can't even front, they apply like butter and are smooth and creamy at the same time, i don't have a favourite shade at all because i love every single one of them. The colours are bold and can cause quite a scare for people who like neutrals but trust me when i say the colours become cool toned once on your lid, i do recommend this palette as you will not be dissappointed. The quality and price is amazing, Please keep checking back for more holiday gift guides and reviews. Have a happy weekend, xoxo bynki

This is Nars Killing Me Softly cheek palette from their 2013 hoilday collection, it's a beautiful palette filled with Nars most popular shades. Nars is one of my favourite makeup brands and their products are always top notch although quite pricey, they are well worth it, This holiday collection also features a second palette called Adult Content which i think is more suitable to cooler skintones.
It contains four colours with three blushes and one highlight, Gilda, Albatross, Orgasm and Outlaw. All shades are very pigmented and are also permanent in their regular line. I love to use these blushes as they give a beautiful glow and are not too shimmery, they blend very well and be rest assured you are getting the best.
This is a limited edition palette and as it features their best selling shades, it will fly off the shelves so if you are a Nars fan, hurry up and get yours as this palette is very practical and will suit your every need. I hope my Holiday guide so far is helping you prepare your Christmas shopping list for yourself, friends and family. I also want to advise that you get these beauty holiday collections fast because they are limited edition and will sell out quickly especially as their prices are reasonable. There are so many wonderful collections out there but the ones that i am reviewing are the ones that i like and know that the quality is perfect and the price suits my wallet, so feel free to choose what suits you best. You can get this palette at Nars counter or online, have a wonderful day. xoxo bynki

I received these two samples above from Mac, they are the new Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara and the Prep+Prime Skin Base Visage. I used both of them and i am very impressed, especially with the macara, Mac mascara are usually rubbish in my opinion but this has changed my mind, just one coat with very light stroke lifted my lashes and seperated them, the colour too was very black, very intense, it added volume and it's waterproof so no fear of smudging. The skin visage is a face primer to create a smooth base for foundation, it has tiny micro shimmer in it and is white in texture, it made my skin smooth and did make my foundation last longer. Am kind of on the fence with this product because of the shimmer in it, i have oily skin and don't want anything with shine or shimmer as a base before makeup, that said, it's still a great product and i really recommend it to dry and combination skin. I totally approve both products and see myself purchasing them in full size. What is your favourite mascara and primer? Toodles, xoxo bynki

This is the awesome Mac lustre drops and am i glad to have it! I used this drop all through summer and still using it this winter as well although it's more pratical to use during summer, but Hey i just love the glow it gives and can't limit myself to using it only in summer. It's a liquid shimmering sun highlighter and can be used for many things, i use them on brides as well because there are so dope and make me look so radiant!
It's slightly thick in rich golden texture but sheers out once applied, it's a very easy product to work with and i like to mix it with moisturizer or foundation to give an instant glow and glamourous look or use it to highlight my cheekbone / other areas to create a luminous finish, this product has many multipurpose use. It comes in a small petite bottle with a tiny nozzle to dot the drops, a little goes a long way and it can last you a long time. It comes in three shades Sun Rush, Pink Rebel and LE Barbados Girl, i love this product so much ,i even use it during winter. How are you guys preparing for Christmas? Shopping list sorted? well my beauty gift goodies are still coming and i will be posting details to help you find the perfect gift. Have a wonderful week, xoxo bynki

Every year Brands creates limited edition collections for the holidays and this year is no exception, So many to choose from, am going crazy! This is a lip gloss set from Laura Mercier that i've had my eyes on for a while now, they are lip glosses tube that you can keep for yourself or share out individually as gift to friends at Christmas. They come in mini tubes with convenient applicator.
There are five portable glosses and each has a unique touch as the colours are gorgeous and very pretty packed with pigment. When i applied them to my lips, they went on smooth and the shine was just the perfect amount. The perfomance was great as well as they lasted between 4-5 hours on me, they smell so lovely and my lips were plumped all through the day, they were non sticky and did not dry out too.
They contain healthy ingredients that boost antioxidant and i am really happy with them as i love every single one of them, the colour shade for this set include Rose, Violet, After hours, Bare beige and Sparkling (shimmering peach, pale pink and dusty mauve for a subtle, more demure look). They are limited edition christmas gift and come in two sets, the Soft Nude colour set and the Rich Berry colour set
If you like lip gloss, you will be pleased with this laura mercier set and i also suggest you hunt them fast enough as these things always sell out because they are such a good deal and the quality is great value at £31. I hope this post will help some of you with your Christmas shopping list, Toodles. xoxo bynki

The Holiday season is here and almost every makeup brands are coming out with their Christmas holiday gift set which i am so excited about. I got my hands on quite a few and this is one of them, Mac Mineralize Brush Set from their stroke of midnight collection.
It contains four Mac fiber brushes for the face/eye and a carry purse to store the brushes when travelling, this set is one of the several new brush set they realeased amongst other set. The colour combination is very pretty and very me as i like black and white cordinated colours, the brushes have both colours featured on them with a gold circle accent between the black and white handle, the brush bag has pretty much the same colour theme and it's nice enough to carry as a night out bag if you want to. Now unto the brushes, there are four mini duo fiber brushes in the set
187 duo fiber face brush
159 duo fiber blush brush
286 duo fiber tapered blending brush for eye
287 duo fiber eyeshadow brush
The duo fiber brushes from Mac are one of the most popular from their range and they are very good because they pick up very little products and they also blend effortlessly
They are very light weight too and feel super soft which is a good thing, i don't own many Mac brushes simply because of the price, i feel like they are too expensive although i know they are the best and can last you well over 12 years if you care for them properly so you can imagine my excitement when i saw this set from their holiday gift, i knew i had to get one especially because the price was so affordable.
They look and feel sturdy enough just like the full sized ones and feel firm to the hands, the only thing am not too sure about is the size. Yes i know there are mini brushes but i wasn't expecting it this small maybe because this is my first time buying their gift set brushes, although they feel firm like i said, they are just too small for my hand and for me to work with but i guess for the price, it's quite a massive bargain so no complain.
So far, they haven't shed one bit and i do think it is a fanstatic set especially for those that like duo fiber brushes. It's a must have for makeup artist for themselves or a makeup lover or even as a gift to friends/family as you get four brushes for a mere £42 compared to their permanent collection which starts from £27 per brush. Overall i am very happy and do recommend it to those (like me) trying to get their hands on Mac brushes without paying the expensive price. I love Mac brushes and hopefully with time, i will build up my entire work kit with their brushes. This set and other set from their Christmas collection is available now at Mac counters and online, if you want one, buy them now before they sell out and Yes they will sell out because they are limited editions. Have a great week everyone and Thanks for stopping by. xoxo bynki

Hi guys, today am reviewing skincare and Clarins is one of my favourite skincare product out there, the strenght of this brand is broad and amazing with very effective results. They cover every aspects of skincare and makeup, the only problem i have about them are their prices, they are in my opinion over priced because not all the products are beneficial. I tryed out all the products above well over two week and i am confident in giving this honest review about them, so let's go
Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel - This is a very gentle cleanser in gel texture, it helps remove impurities from skin and left my skin feeling soft and fresh, i also used it to remove my makeup at night, a little goes a long way, as soon as i apply it and rub, it turns to foam allowing me to wash my face without normal soap. It smells great too, very fresh.
Multi Active Night - This was a bit hard for me to use as i usually don't have the time to pamper my face at night and more so, this cream is for normal to dry skin . I still went ahead to try it, it's a very smooth cream and is suppose to give a youthful appearance to the skin, i did'nt notice much about it thou, maybe because i wasn't keen on rubbing my face at night, i prefer instead to let my skin feel natural at night and just breathe. The full price for this cream is £42.00 which i think is too pricey, so i advice you pls try out a tester first before you commit to a full size especially because of the high price tag.
Daily Energizer Wake-up Booster - I actually used this one very well because it contained vitamin C (we all know what vitamin C does for the body). It really does what it say, it brightened my face instantly and was so cooling. it was like a liquid moisturizer to me, i used it with cotton pad to gently wipe my face and allowed my skin to drink up the liquid, after 2-3 mins, my skin was fresh and brighter, it also smells AMAZING!.
Daily Energizer Cream - This is suppose to be for all skin type to gain hydration and glow, and should be used after the cleansing gel and wakeup booster. It didn't do that for me, it was too drying for my liking, it made my face look dull like chalk and overly too dry, it also smells kind of like orange zest (funny).
Toning Lotion - This is by far the best of all the rest, it's a lovely soft and gentle toner lotion in liquid to help prep your skin for anything. I like the hydration this toner gave my face, it just made my skin soft, soft, soft. Once applied, it felt like gel when i rubbed it with my fingers and it does'nt contain alcohol which i love, i don't like anything with alcohol because it feels too harsh for the skin. This toner is perfect and made me feel relaxed, it contains marshmallow and sweet almond, both to soften and comfort the skin so you can imagine the smell.....AMAZING TOO!
So my final thought is that they are all good individually, i would'nt suggest using every single one of the them because to me, that's just too many products for one face. Choose one that works with your skin, and if you want it to solve a particular skin acne, buy the product you think will work best for u and always try to get sample first just because of the price, it would'nt make sense to spend all that money on a product and it turns out not working for you. I personally think the wakeup booster and toning lotion worked the best for me, they both lifted my face and brightened at the same time, i will be repurchasing both of them to add to my skincare routine. All the product mentioned are gifts with purchase that i made but they can all be bought in full size versions, Have a blessed day everyone. xoxo bynki

Hi guys, today am reviewing this tint from MeMeMe Comestics, it's their liquid blush called Cherub's Blush and it's a tint for both the cheek and the lips. I wasn't very sure about it at first sight but i still went ahead to give it a try for a whole week to get my verdict on it. This is a tint, sort of like a liquid to help stain your cheek to give colour especially for people who don't really like makeup, i applied it to my cheek with the brush inside and then use my finger to rub and blend into my skin. At first, it was quite tricky because it dried up immediately before i could even blend it out and i didn't know what to make of it, but i gave it another try, only this time i blended it faster and added about five more drops from the bottle, i got a decent amount of the tint to cover my cheek and could see the stain on my cheek and it looked beautiful, very simple.

It actually gave me a beautiful cheek and the colour is gorgeous, it can also pass as a dupe for Benefit's Benetint, i do like it and also think it's something you can just rub on your cheek in the morning to give you a flush of colour when you do your school runs, instead of having a bare face without makeup. It comes in a bottle ( like a nail polish bottle) with the exact same style of polish brush applicator inside, the liquid colour looks deep red and thick but it is very light, I always shake the bottle before use to get an even consistency. The smell seems okay to me and it's not sticky but be careful so you don't stain your clothes and other things around you. I haven't tried it on my lips yet but i do think it's a reasonable tint for those who don't generally like makeup or have the time to apply blush, this is a quick alternative to give your face a pop of colour without makeup. Also it long lasting all day too, i was quite impressed with that and for a retail price of £5.50, it's a steal and that's the best part because everyone loves a bargain. Have you tried a liquid blush before? MeMeMe Comestics are really coming on the beauty scene, have you tried any of their other products? Have a great week and Toodlers. xoxo bynki
