EBAY FINDS #5: NEW MAKEUP BRUSHES

Hello guys!!


Another eBay finds post after a long time. As you my suggest I love buying things on eBay especially makeup brushes because you can find some really good ones for a very low price. 

Today I'm going to write about four new face brushes that I got a month ago. They were all under 4$. I bought them all from different sellers but they aren't selling them anymore so I can't post links but if you write powder brush or contour brush you will definitely find them because they are quite popular on eBay. 

BIG POWDER BRUSH

 

First of all this brush is beautiful and incredibly soft. I don't think I own any brush as soft as this one. It is very big which makes it perfect for powdering your face or for blending blush / contour. The only downside of this brush is a handle. It does look beautiful but it's made out of very cheap light plastic and it feels like it will break soon. 

SMALL CONTOUR BRUSH



This brush is a knock of of the Real Techniques contour brush but it doesn't say the name of the brand anywhere so it is not a complete copy. But overall I absolutely love this brush. It has a perfect size for contouring. I use it all the time and don't even reach for my other contouring/bronzing brushes any more. It is also very soft and nicely made (doesn't feel cheap at all).  This brush is definitely my favourite from eBay so far. 

TAPERED HIGHLIGHT BRUSH


 

This one is made out of goat hair so it is not the softest brush ever but it's a perfect long tapered brush that applies highlighter right on top of the cheekbones.  It is my second favourite brush that I ever bought on eBay and I use it all the time. 

ANGLED FOUNDATION BRUSH 



Another amazing brush. It is quite small for a foundation brush and it's also angled which I wouldn't normally use to apply foundation. But this brush blend liquid products into the skin so quickly and very nicely (without any lines or hair loss). The angle actually makes it very easy to use under the eyes and around the nose. It is also very well made not cheap at all.

Še na kratko za vse moje slovenske sledilke. Vse čopiče, ki jih lahko vidite zgoraj sem kupila na eBayu za manj kot 3-4€. 

Prvi je zelo velik čopič, ki je najbolj uporaben za nanašanje pudra v prahu po celem obrazu ali za zabrisovanje rdečila ali bronzerja. Je eden najbolj mehkih čopičev kar jih imam. Edino kar me moti je zelo nekvalitetno držalo narejeno iz poceni, lahke plastike. 

Drugi čopič je kot lahko vidite narejen po zgledu Real Techniques contour čopiča. Vendar je kljub temu odličen. Je ravno prave velikosti za contour in ga uporabljma skoraj vsak dan. Na ostale čopiče, ki jih imam ravno tako za contour sem kar malo pozabila. Je zelo mehak in za razliko od prvega čopiča zelo lepo narejen. 

Tretji čopič je najbolj primeren za nanašanje osvetljevalca (highlight) saj je malce daljši in oblikovan v rahlo "špico" zato nanese osvetljevalec direktno na vrh ličnice. Narejenje iz kozje dlake zato ni ravno najbolj mehak čopič na svetu je pa vseeno super in zelo lepo narejen. 

In še zadnji čopič, ki ga uporabljam za nanos tekočega pudra. Je sicer malce manjši od ostalih čopičev za nanost pudra, pa tudi pristrižen je postrani. Ravno zaradi majhnosti in pristriženosti je super za nanost pudra okoli nosu in pod očmi. Je zelo mehek in zabriše puder v prahu zelo hitro in zelo lepo.

CATRICE EYESHADOW / HIGHLIGHTER REVIEW

Hello guys!


Today I'm going to talk about Catrice glam fusion powder to gel eyeshadow in the shade 020 To Be ContiNUDEd. I soon as I swatched it in store I knew it will be a beautiful highlight. Actually I don't use it as an eyeshadow at all. 

It comes in a little bit bigger packaging then eyeshadows usually come in (like Essence or other Catrice eyeshadows) so it's big enough for bigger brushes like highlighting brush that I use. You get 3,3g of products and in Essence eyeshadows you get 2,5g so it really is bigger. 

It says on the packaging it is a powder to gel eyeshadows but I don't see that. It is just a regular eyeshadow for me.  


The shade is beautiful beige/gold with really tiny shimmer and that's why it is great as a highlighter because it is not too glittery and you don't end up with glitter all over your face at the end of the day. 


If you apply a little bit it's going to be a nice settle highlight but if you built it up it is going to be beautiful intense gold highlight. I love the settle and the intense version.  


It costs around 3-4€. 

I really like this eyeshadow / highlighter and I recommend it to all of you. 


That is it for this post. Hope you liked it and thanks for visiting my blog <3

NEW ESSENCE PRODUCTS

Hello!


If you had forgotten about my blog I totally understand you because I haven't posted anything in pretty much ages. Yes I was very bad with posting for the last two months. But I'm back and I'm happy to be writing about my love aka makeup again. 

After a long time of being good and not spending to much money on make up I went back to the drugstore and saw quite a lot of new exciting things especially from Essence. So of course I had to buy at least some of them. 

In this post I'm going to show you three new Essence products that I absolutely adore. 


ESSENCE STAY ALL DAY TRANSLUCENT FIXING POWDER 


When I read on the back of the product that it will keep you matt I almost put it back on the shelf (because I have very dry skin). But since it's so inexpensive I decided to try it and see how it will work for me anyway. I'm so happy that I bought it because it is great. 

This powder is loose and translucent so you can't see it on the skin and it doesn't give any coverage. It is just meant to set cream products. It's so smooth, fine and doesn't dry out my skin at all. It doesn't look cakey either. 


I use it mostly to set concealer but sometimes also all over my face because this powder makes my skin look a lot smoother.  

All in all I really like it. I finally found a drugstore powder that suits my dry skin. Oh.. it is also great for "baking".  


ESSENCE PURE NUDE HIGHLIGHTER


Another amazing product by Essence. This highlighter just like the powder is so smooth and fine. It has a peachy/golden undertone. 


What I love about it is that it doesn't contain glitter or shimmer. It is very natural looking and gives a beautiful healthy glow to the skin.  



ESSENCE  FOR-BIDDEN VOLUME MASCARA


I always been a Maybelline mascaras fan and I never tried any from Essence. But this one really interested me because I love the packaging, the wand and the fact that it's a volumasing mascara so I picked it up.


At first it was a little bit too wet (most mascaras are at first for me) but after a week or so when it dried out a bit I fell in love. It separates my lashes and gives the so much volume and doesn't look too clumpy at all. 


All of these products cost around 3-4€.
