BM Beauty Cosmetics Line Review and Swatches

I have several products from a cruelty free BUAV approved  cosmetics line called BM Beauty to show you. You can read all the details about the brand, products and ideas behind them on the brand’s website.

On the photo below you can see: Mineral Lip Gloss  in Nude, Mineral Eye Shadows in Marble Sparkle  and Wolf Howl, Eyeshadow Brush 123 and Mineral Foundation in Naked.

 

I was actually surprised at how much I loved the line.  I like the affordable prices and the fact that there are not that many products so that you don’t get overwhelmed.

Out of the  five products that I have I loved the eye brush and the lip gloss the best so I will start my review with those products.

Eyeshadow Brush 123 (£8)

This is just a brilliant brush. I’ve actually added it to my personal brush collection and I use it a lot.

It  is an ‘oval shaped brush with densely packed, super soft fibres’. I love using it for the crease and for the blending the eye shadows on the lower lash line. I like it more that MAC Pencil Brush (219) for a more precise work but would not compare it to MAC Blending Brush (217) as 217 is bigger and fluffier so is better for blending.

BM Beauty 123 Brush is pretty firm so it gives you a lot of control. And it is only £8!  Brush length in total 150mm. Handle length 135mm. Bristle length 15mm. I am very impressed.

 Mineral Lip Gloss in Nude (£12)

I have never tried a mineral lip gloss before so I have nothing to compare it with. However, I am really impressed with the BM Beauty one as I don’t own anything similar.

 

The formula is non sticky and  moisturizing, the colour is beautiful – it is a perfect nude which  gives a nice coverage. It’s the finish that I find interesting, it is glossy and

Illamasqua Precision Ink in Wisdom Review and Swatches

So here is the final review for the Illamasqua’s Generation Q makeup collection for AW 2012.

I have already reviewed the blusher in Allure and intense lip gloss in Boost.

And now it’s time for the Precision Ink in Wisdom (£17) which is described as antiqued gold.

I actually already did a detailed review of the brand’s Precision Inks so I will not repeat myself as you can read the review here. But I’ll just say that I really love these.  They are not hard to apply, even if you are not very experienced when it comes to liquid eye liner, have amazing pigmentation and colour pay off. Also the colours are original.

My favourite thing is that the liner stays glossy even when they are dry.  By glossy I mean that the shade doesn’t look dull or

Revlon Lip Butter in Sorbet Review and Lip Swatches

Believe it or not, but this is my first Revlon Lip Butter. I.Know. Right?

I have chosen the shade called Sorbet which is a lovely cool-toned fuchsia pink. This is how I would describe it. London Makeup Girl suggested it for my ” Bright Winter” type and it was a great recommendation!

It is a beautiful colour that brightens up the whole look but is a really wearable shade, nothing over the top. It looks great paired with a bright pink blush and an eye liner or minimal eye makeup.

Rave: ArtDeco Grey Eye Shadows Review and Swatches

I hope  that you all already know that I am a huge fan of ArtDeco eye shadows. I think these are one of the best eye shadows out there and  they are really worth getting! They have so many shades to choose from and they always have these beautiful LE palettes for the eye shadows. My fave is probably from Holiday 2009 collection.

Several months ago I got a LE palette from their Spring collection which looks like this. So I thought that it was time to get 4 more eye shadows to fill it in.  I’ve got only 1 so far because all the other shades that I’ve wanted were sold out (but I will be back). The price of each shadow is ~ €5, depends on the country.

I got eye shadow #605 which is a gorgeous silvery grey.

As usual, I am very happy with the quality. The eye shadows are:
