Cucumber and Petal Face Masks! Korean Slice Mask!

Hey guys! In this video I try out cucumber and tulip face masks by Kocostar! I found these on ASOS and bought them because I saw them on my friend Nina’s instagram and had been dying to try them out!

I tried out the cucumber mask first, it’s meant to be hydrating and calming. The cucumber pieces are drenched and feel really nice on the skin. Next I put on some of the tulip petal mask, which is for rejuvenating and softening. These petals felt so hydrating, I think they maybe soak up more liquid than the cucumber pieces. I don’t know if you’re meant to, but I rubbed the remains of the mask on my hands and legs to get that sweet hydration. Unlike most sheet masks, it’s really secure and I can talk and move without it falling off. 

You have to leave it for 20-30mins to work. After twenty minutes, the petals started drying out as though my skin had soaked up all the hydration. After peeling off all the pieces, my face felt way plumper and my skin looked so fresh. I decided to keep the open packet in the fridge so that next use they will be super refreshing. The next morning, my skin still felt really hydrated and I didn’t get any dryness, plus my neck felt softer where I had put it.

Other varieties available include lemon, tomato and rose. Each pack has two masks from what I can tell. I did buy the tomato and rose ones but I haven’t tried them out yet. The tomato mask is hydrating and brightening and the rose petal mask is for hydrating and nourishing. Tbh I’m not sure why I bought the tomato one since that’s unappealing to me but oh well.

You can grab the packs from Beauty Bay (for $6.80) or ASOS (for $8.00)
Check out the video and let me know what you think of these masks!

Trying out UNICORN TEARS Lipstick by Too Faced!

Hey everyone! Today I’m trying out Unicorn Tears Lipstick by Too Faced for the first time and thought I would do a little review for you guys! The shade is a multicoloured iridescent, which sparkles and changes colour in the light. It’s from the “colour Drenched” line which apparently means it’s hydrating and conditioning.
It comes out purple with blue glitter on the lips - it’s unique to say the least. I’ve never tried anything like it. It’s not for me in my opinion, but it could be really cool at like a festival or Halloween or dress up party or something. It stayed after three hours in which I ate some gnocchi and drank some water so I’m impressed that it’s quite long wearing.

HIT or MISS?! Trying LUSH (Handmade & Ethical) Makeup!

Hey guys! So a little while ago I picked up some makeup products from LUSH which I’ve never tried before, so I thought I would do an everyday makeup look to test them out and let you know what I think!

First is the Colour Supplement in “Dark Yellow”. This is their foundation. It blends out easily and feels more like a tinted moisturiser than a foundation. It looks pretty on the skin but man was it shiny! My skin was quite oily at the start of this video and this foundation didn’t get rid of that. Lush do sell powder but I didn’t get it - wish I did! 

Next up is Colour Eyeliner in “Independent”. It was great and easy to use! It tidies up easily (v. important for when doing winged eyeliner) and isn’t flaky at all! I love it.

Okay on to the Eyes Right Mascara. It was a really cute little brush but super impractical packaging - you can't wiggle the brush around to pick up more product. It’s not clumpy at all which is one plus.

Next I tested out the Charisma Skin Tint and the Feeling Younger Skin Tint. I started out with the bronzing Charisma one and didn’t see a whole bunch of difference to be honest. The Feeling Younger highlight was really pretty.

For my lips, I tried their Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub. It smellls SO GOOD and tastes great too. I feel like it doesn’t really take off much dead skin but it helps by getting blood flowing to your lips.

For the lipstick I took the Handmade Colour Lipstick in “Believe”. It’s a beautiful shade - like a pearlescent sorbet watermelon and very creamy!

Overall I was pretty impressed with these products though I did end up powdering over the whole look with ‘Un’ Powder by RMS because I had to go out in public after this tutorial and my skin was just TOO. SHINY. 

Check out the video below to see how they held up after a few hours of wear!

Taking One Makeup Look and Creating THREE (without starting over!)

Hey guys! Today I did a sponsored video with Bobbi Brown where I show you a way to create not THREE makeup looks in one, all using their new product - the Art Stick Liquid Lip collection. 

I love that they’re squeezable and super pigmented but still light-weight on the lip, AND that there are sixteen colours, everything from nude to bright to bold. I also love that the tip is plastic rather than felt or other material, it means that you can keep it clean and wipe it off between uses. You can grab the collection at Sephora.

So the first of these three looks is an everyday makeup look with a bright lip. Start with your foundation - I used two different shades to contour with and blended it with a sponge. Next up are eyebrows, which are probably the most important thing to do even when you’re in a rush, since having filled and neatly straightened eyebrows can make you look put together even when you’re not. Next I used the Bobbi Brown Retouching Powder to take away any shine from my foundation. 

I used the Matte Covershot Palette from Smashbox to create a really simple eyeshadow look -remember, this is for everyday wear. For my day looks I usually use a gel pencil eyeliner and put it on the outer corner of my eye to lift it (the effect is subtle but really nice). You can smudge it out with a medium brown eyeshadow if you like. For my blush, I used a peachy/orange blush (“Cantaloup” by Surratt) to give my face a bit of warmth without using too much colour. I finished up the loop with the Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip in “Lily” on my lips (it makes my teeth look whiter which is an unexpected bonus!)

Now for the second look, which is a wearable glam with a bold lip (my favourite). So the quickest way to get a glam look is with the dreaded WINGED EYELINER. It takes a steady hand and a lot of practice, that’s for sure. Some false eyelashes are also essential for amping up that nighttime glam. Next, I did some contouring using the Step by Step Contour Trio by Smashbox and blended it with the 3DHD Blender by Sigma (use code chloemorello10 for a discount!). To brighten my inner eye I took some Too Faced Glitter Glue and then covered with a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow called “Silver Heather”. Don’t forget to blend it out! I chose a hot red lip colour for this look - “Hot Tangerine”. To add a bit more glam, I took the Bobbi Brown Face Highlighter in “Seashell” and applied it to my cheekbones using my finger - and I also like to highlight the bridge of my nose between my eyes. 

For the third and final third look, an evening glam look with nude lip. I start by dabbing over everything with the blender to freshen it up, and retouching with Bobbi Brown’s Retouching Powder. Brush away the excess and blend it in. I contoured with my Revlon Sculpt and Highlight Contour Kit (which I helped develop!) Because I broke the highlight in my Revlon kit, I used the awesome “Moonstone” Powder Highlight from Becca

For my eye look, I used the Smashbox Matte Covershot Palette again, taking the black colour to my lid. Don’t forget to use a tissue to catch any fallout. Then take some medium brown through the crease. Then add the mid brown under the eye to finish! Such a simple eye look but so effective! I freshened up my brows with some brow pomade and added more mascara since this is a nighttime look. I chose the colour “Honey Bear” for my lip and made it pop by tracing my lips with my foundation. Mess your hair up a bit to complete the look and you’re ready to go out!
