Makeup Addiction • Glam Me Up Eye Brush Set • Review

If you’re into makeup and into Instagram, you probably heard of a famous brand called Makeup Addiction (previously known as Hair and Makeup Addiction).

They are specialized in brushes, selling both sets and individual pieces. With all the success they reached, the brand recently decided to revamp their website and collections.

Ardell • Demi Wispies • Review

False lashes can actually have a huge impact on every look.  A lot women think that lashes are too daring and evident, but there are a lot of different styles! Falsies range from subtle to extremely dramatic to fashion styles. You don’t really need a dramatic lash style to give your look a boost. If you’re looking for a rather natural, but effective lash style, then you came to the right place! In this post, we’re talking about a very well-known pair of lashes, the Ardell’s Demi Wispies!

Since they’re natural, they’re very used on weddings for the brides that look for a basic makeup that highlights their features.sparkleoflight sparkle of light ardell demi wispies whispies demiwispies false eyelashes uk falseeyelashesuk review detail

Ellis Faas • Hot Lips L402 • Review

I rarely remain amazed by a product i haven’t used yet. With the Ellis Faas Hot Lips, it was love at first “swatch”. The moment i tried this liquid lipstick on my hand, before putting it on my lips, my jaw dropped.

I never, like ever, tried something so pigmented! A few drops go a very long way!

This is how the product looks like:

Because it’s absolutely packed with pigment, you’ll only need a tiny bit of the non-greasy Hot Lips to add vibrant colour. Hot Lips are extremely longwearing, without the risk of drying out your lips. A little goes a very long way! All Ellis Lips products are suitable for every skin tone, age and style. Paraben-free. Non-sticky. No animal testing”.
