Shimmery Makeup Tutorial ft. Born Pretty Store

Hi everyone,

Today’s blog post is all about a Shimmery Makeup Look I created thanks to some products from Born Pretty Store.

Born Pretty Store is a website that sells a variety of products, from makeup to nail items and mobile accessories etc. I have made previous videos & blog posts about their website and you can check them out right here –

I also have a 10% DISCOUNT CODE that you could use at checkout and on non sale items – KEZZH10

I would like to thank Born Pretty Store for giving me yet another opportunity to collaborate with them!

The products I reviewed this time from their website were – 

2 Piece Face Brush Set

These retail for $2.59. I found that these brushes are a little small to apply any foundation or powder. I tried blending out my concealer which I liked how they blended it for me. And I also tried applying bronzer and highlight with them.

However, I didn’t get the finished effect I usually get with my other products. The highlight applied better than the bronzer but I think that these brushes look really cute on your vanity with their rhinestone packaging.

6 Piece Gradient Rainbow Unicorn Colorful Handle Eye Makeup Eyeshadow Brushes Set

This retails for $3.99. I think these brushes are so cutely decorated with that perfect unicorn print. You get a brush for your brows, eyeliner, 2 flat brushes, a crease brush and a pointed brush perfect for the inner corner. 

I loved these brushes more than the other face brushes of before. I found that the brow brush and eyeliner one applied the products well. There is no proper blending brush in this set however the flat brushes are great to work with. Overall I think you can get good use out of them and they are so cute too!

1Pc Glow Shimmer Liquid Highlighter

This retails for $2.59. I applied this not as a highlight but as my base colour on my eye look. So I applied it using the flat brush from the unicorn brush set.

I felt that this product was a little patchy when applied and took a little long to dry. However, I loved the finished effect and how it made my eye look pop even more!

1 Pair Handmade False Eyelash Black Long Thick Curly Artificial Eyelash

These retail for $2.99. I found that these lashes were so easy to work with. The packaging they came in was really practical too.

I love how these applied and that they had a natural effect to them. They lasted long and when I applied mascara on them so to blend my real lashes with them, they stayed on really well. These are my favourite eye lashes that I have tried from born pretty store for sure!

Missy Young Fashion Matte Liquid Lipstick in Shade 5

This retails for $2.59. I loved the colour of this lipstick, it’s such a lovely deep pink shade. I love how it applied, it wasn’t patchy or flakey and it dried down to a complete matte finish.

I tried the kiss proof test, and the lipstick didn’t transfer. For only $2.59 I think these lipsticks are such a bargain!

The final look –

Stellar Cosmetics – Review

Hi everyone, 

Today’s blog post is all about a new makeup line called – Stellar Cosmetics.

Stellar Cosmetics sells vegan and cruelty free pressed glitter pigments; and it is based in Malta. This I found to be pretty cool as it is a Maltese line!

They have a variety of glitters from pinks to purples to golds. I would like to thank them so much for sending me these 4 beautiful shades.

So far I have only tried one out but I wanted to go ahead and write up a blog post about them.

The shades I received were:

Princess – a rose gold shade

Gold Digga – A gold shade

They were packaged well and when opened weren’t damaged whatsoever!

Today I tried one and created a makeup look –

For this look, I used the Gold Digga Shade and used it alongside the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. I applied the glitter onto my eyelid which already had eyeshadow on (Primavera – from the Modern Renaissance Palette).

My favourite products from this look!

I applied it using an eyeshadow sponge applicator with some Glitter Fix Liquid and I placed the glitter on my lid.

I found that I had to dip the sponge applicator a couple of times to pick up the product. However, in the end I was happy with how it applied. The glitter didn’t move around and I did not have any fall out and didn’t have glitter all around my face – which is not what we want.

It is quite important in my opinion when working with any glitter that you take your time and do it gently.

The glitter also stayed in place all day. I did use my Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray so even that might have helped it more in not moving and remaining where I wanted it to be.

Overall, I loved how the glitter applied. I didn’t get any reactions when using the glitter and it stayed in place all day. I did have to go back and forth to create the finished look I wanted as the sponge applicator didn’t pick up a lot of glitter at once.

It also came off really gently when using my makeup remover from Vichy.

If you liked what you read and the makeup look I created then I would recommend you visiting Stellar Cosmetics and trying the glitters out for yourselves. I look forward to trying out the three other shades! Also, during the month of April – when ordering 3 or more pressed glitters you will be entitled to FREE domestic shipping.

Thank you once again Stellar Cosmetics!
