[Review] – Makeup Products from Born Pretty Store

Disclaimer : The products you are about to see were SENT to me by the store. The views, however are purely genuine, honest and mine.

 

I’m sure you all must be familiar with the name! According to BPS Website:

The original inspiration of the name born pretty store comes from proverb “each woman is born pretty”. Combining the aim of providing beauty items to the female, we incorporated it into the name “born pretty”store. Bornprettystore is a store intended to provide each ordinary female, whoever they are, wherever they come from, with the latest fashion items of nail art, make up and outfit, helping them find the best way to dress up, which ultimately push outside their potential beauty to the fullest.

So I received 4 amazing products in my mail!

  1. Brush set

My Thoughts – Overall the brush set is pretty good for beginners or girls just starting their makeup collection. The Eyeliner brush is not precise enough. The handles are fine, size of the brush being small.

 

 

2. Make up Blending Sponge Stick

So many makeup companies are creating such sponge sticks or as I call it ‘beauty blender on a stick’, such as Maybelline and MagiCosmetix. It is a small sized stick with a rigid sponge attached on top.

My thoughts – It’s good to try out a new product, but the major drawback I faced was that it eats up a lot of product. So overall, this is an average applicator for the purpose.

3. Heng Fang Moisturizing Lip Crayons (Set of 12 Colours)

This set consists of 12 different lip crayons. The colour range varies from coral to browns. The crayons are mini, bullet sized.

My Thoughts

The crayons have a moisturizing feel to them. Although they don’t look like so, but they are quite pigmented as well. The only drawback? They are too small! Thus not easy to carry around and handle. But I am quite impressed with the range and texture of these crayons. And these are by far by favourite out of the 4 products! 😀

4. Set of Lashes

This box contains about 10 set of lashes. The lashes are all off the same pattern. They are quite fluttery and natural looking. The set doesn’t comes with any lash glue along.

My Thoughts

The lashes are good for every day sort of use. They can be used 2-3 times at most. Overall, I personally like them for practising or using them on myself.

That’s all for now! Let me know what you think. 🙂

[Review] ADS Peel-off Lipgloss

So recently, a new trend has take up all over my facebook and instagram feed. ‘Peel-off lipgloss’ or ‘Peel-off lipstains’ are becoming very famous amongst us. With the likes of Huda Beauty and various other magazine editors trying these ‘stains’ out, I thought about giving them a go too! So let’s see what the hype is all about! 😀

How to Use:

The Box shows a 3-step process for using this lip-gloss:

  1. Apply a thick layer on your lips, without going out the natural outline.
  2.  Let it dry for 5-10 minutes
  3.  Peel it off and apply a clear lip-gloss on top.

My Experience

I was very excited to try out this new trend. This peel-off gloss gives you a slight tint and is inspired by Korean beauty trends of getting a just-ate-an-ice-lolly type gradient tint to the lips.  The result is a beautiful, natural looking stain. gradient_lips_large

The entire range of ADS Peel-off lipgloss has different varieties of colour, from orange to pink and then to red. The lighter colours (Watermelon, Strawberry) don’t show up as much on my skin compared to the darker ones (Rose breen, Cherry Red).

Whoever claimed it to be a 24 hours lasting tint was really wrong. At maximum, it can last up to 4-5 hours, and can not stand food at all! It is wudhu friendly also for those concerned.

As much as i loved the initial stain, I have to admit it is a rather messy one. Both application and removal is far from being easy or neat. Your hands get messy, you get the stain on your nails quite easily too!

Messy Application

Tint

If you want to try it out, make sure to follow these tips as I learned from my experience:

  • Moisturize your lips before application
  • Use a nice flat-brush to apply
  • Dry for 15 minutes, or wait until it is COMPLETELY dry
  • After removing, apply a lip balm
  • If you get the stain anywhere outside your lips, use a moisturizer to remove
  • Wash your hands with soap to remove the stain

 

Summing it up,

What’s to LIKE: 

  • A natural looking lip tint
  • An affordable lip gloss
  • Colour range is good

What’s NOT to Like:

  • Stain is not very long lasting
  • Messy application
  • MAY dry out lips
  • Takes time drying
  • Not a fast method

 

Price & Availability:

These lip glosses (Individual and pack) are being sold by various online pages. I got mine for PKR 1000 for a box containing 6 lip gloss.

Overall Rating: 

3/5

 

Much Love,
