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 –

Apart from being disappointed by how long it took I was quite happy with the products that were inside the bag … well except for one.

So we received 2 lipsticks. One was from City Color and I have heard of this brand before but I never really tried any of there products.

The lipstick is from the line called City Chic and it retails for $4.99. The colour that we got was called Heartbreaker and it was a plum purple shade.

It is a very pigmented and moisturizing lipstick. This was my favourite product out of all the bag. And may I note this was also the cheapest item in there!

The next product that we got is another lipstick from the brand called Mirabella. Have you guys ever heard of the brand?

I loved the packaging as I never saw anything like it !! On the lipstick there was also a teal band which looked amazing!

The shade that we got was called Coral Flash and this lipstick retails for $26. Quite pricey if you ask me.

The lipstick was a coral red shade. It is not as pigmented as Heartbreaker from City Color but it applies so smoothly and creamy on the lips. Personally not my favourite colour but it is perfect for the summer !!

The item which was not lip related – as you always get 3 lip items and 1 non lip related item which I think is super great – was an eye shimmer from Bellapierre.

13843433_10208660023710658_1463650864_o

This retails for $15 and it came in the shade Cinnabar. It is very pigmented and it has purple and pink undertones to it. I absolutely love it and I think that it is stunning!

The last item was another lip related item. I was so excited to try this out but was saddened by its quality. Coincidently it was the most expensive item in the bag.

13833362_10208678225925702_163393453_o

It costs $29 and it is from the brand Cougar Plumper. It is the Volume and Shape Definition. It comes in really cute packaging and you just have to squeeze it out just like one of those glossy lip glosses.

But the taste is horrible, it’s like dish washing liquid. And I applied it to my lips, yes I guess it does plump then but not that much.

But then it stings my lips for a bit but this subsides. I was so disappointed because when I saw it I grew excited cos my lips are so small!

So it being a plumper I was like perfect !!

But anyways!!!

Overall it was a good bag ! And I am still happy with what I got. The entire retail of the bag was $74. 

I really hoped you enjoyed my blog post and if you saw my video, I hope you enjoyed that too!!
