Easy Looks and Giveaway
Beauty Counter Direct is a new website that I have found that has great discounts on beauty products including cosmetics, skincare and fragrances ranging from high to low end (Clarins, YSL, Decleor to Maybelline and Revlon). They have kindly sent me a few of their products to try out so please stay tuned for some reviews coming up soon.
The first on the list is the Easy Looks Make Up Kit in Electric (RRP £9.00, but £2.99 on BCD, coming soon!).
This set contains four sets of makeup strips perfect for travelling or the girl on the go. Each strip has 2 shades of foundation, blush, highlighter, eyeshadow and a lip colour. The quality of the products inside surprised me as I tend to think these can sometimes be a gimmick!
The 2 shades of foundation can be mixed to get the perfect colour for you, or the darker used as a contour. It can also be used as a concealer as it has light to medium buildable coverage and blends well into the skin. The blush and lip colours are gorgeous, the lipgloss/ liquid lipstick in this kit is super pigmented and I adore the bright coral colour (this summer's hottest trend). I think that paired with a natural looking mascara (Maybelline Unstoppable) this is a perfect kit for an easy, fast and fresh look for spring/ summer and I will deffinitely be keeping one in my bag for emergencies :).
Please watch my video for more info and to see how I applied this.
