MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL

 Where you will be able to see the difference if you apply makeup with brushes vs the Magnitone Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush.


WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS PRODUCT?

Firstly Magnitone is an established award winning brand, who has been featured even in Vogue magazine and let's face it Vogue does not feature anything but the best of the best. 

I've seen makeup artists on YouTube using such devices but the design of the ones I have come across don't fit the brief for me. When I saw the the Blend up Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush I fell instantly in love. That sleek design, that rose copper colour detail are the epitome of luxury. It comes in black and white. 

I had to have it at any cost, I was counting down to the Octobers 4th release date. 

I’ve always wanted a brush as such but in order to make the leap it had to be worth it. Look at it, it was totally worth it.

It's not clumpy. You can even take it with you wherever you go. The battery lasts up to 100 mins and it has smart travel power lock.

FUNCTIONALITY 

Blend up is a Vibra-Sonic™ Makeup brush. It buffs and blends makeup in a way that the end result is flawless thanks to it's 200 vibra-sonic movements p/sec. What I love is that not only does it do that, it also stimulates the skin by massaging it. This was achieved as Magnitone developed it with expert guidance from Celebrity Makeup Artist, Paul Herrington.

No one wants a streaky nor clumpy finish. It's the nightmare of every makeup loving individual and unless you are an expert at blending or applying it may be a challenge to avoid. Not everyone can have a makeup artist apply makeup on them everyday.

BACTERIA CONTROL

 Well all of the BlendUp brush heads are treated with Biomaster® which is an antibacterial shield based on natural silver-ion technology which lasts for life. This makes sure that there is no cross contamination reducing those breakout incidents we truly despise.

VERSATILITY

It's very versatile not only does it come with the SmoothBLEND™; a flat-topped brush head. There two extra heads that you can purchase and these are the BuffBLEND or FeatherBLEND to diffuse, buff and stipple the look we can want to go for.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX?

1 x Cordless, rechargeable
1 x Vibra-Sonic™ makeup brush
1 x Antibacterial SmoothBlend Brush Head

THE RESULTS


Look at that flawless finish. This is the best brush I will ever own. My make-up finish looked airbrushed like promised by the product description.


I am impressed with quality of this product. In my youtube video you will clearly be able to see the difference between the normal brushes I use and the Blendup Vibra-sonic makeup brush.

KYLIE COSMETICS HOLIDAY EDITION AND HOW I REALISED IT WAS COUNTERFEIT

3 comments:
This set came in a wonderful silver casing inclusive of six beautiful shades of miniature matte lipsticks.


The size is perfect for going out should you want to replenish your lipstick.

The shades included are moon, ginger, kristen, angel, love bite and vixen.


This was such great casing choice, it looks very high quality and the design is very appealing.

The lipstain itself has great pigmentation except for vixen which was extremely streaky. It is unbelievably long lasting to the point I struggled removing it.


My first impressions were fantastic, the packaging was amazing, the smell matched reviews I had previously had a look at. However on further examination I noticed something wasn't quite right.

Firstly, they would not come off with ease but what gave it away was the pigmentation of vixen and angel. As swatches angel did not match at all it had a shade of orange in it instead of pink and vixen was very hard to apply the colour would somehow only stick to outter edges.

SWATCHES


VS ORIGINAL


On closer examination to the original colours they were close but not at all the same hues.

My advice to you is that it's better to purchase these kind of items from the kylie store itself and should it be out of stock which was my case at the time ,just wait for them to restock.

Kylie cosmetics does not supply for sale to anyone so be very wary of this.

Counterfit items sold as original are just so disappointing because quality will not match your expectations like it didn't match mine.


KIKO COSMETICS: MATTE FUSSION PRESSED POWDER

3 comments:
Hello dolls,

I want to highlight that this is a truthful representation of my experience with the MATTE FUSION PRESSED POWDER.
 

Why did I chose this one?

It's no secret that I enjoy testing every now and again KIKO cosmetics products. In this instance I decided to put the Matte fusion pressed powder through my tests.

I chose this product because I have combination skin and the issue with my skin is that I do get an oily T-zone which I absolutely hate as I hate that shiny look you get at the end of the day with some products especially if they are not suitable for oily skin.

This powder states to be a natural matte finish which is enriched with vitamin E and Argan oil which nourish and protect your skin.

The powder comes in a modern compact with a gun metal finish together with an applicator.


This powder comes in 7 different shades. The one I got is shade 2.


RETAIL PRICE
£10.90

THE RESULTS

As soon as it was applied the results were instant. I applied it as a setting finishing powder with the enclosed applicator.


CASING DESIGN
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I love the casing design. It looks so sleek and love how the logo looks. The mirror is as high quality as the modern compact gun metal finish. 

APPLICATOR QUALITY
⭐⭐⭐⭐
The applicator is so lovely and soft, perfect for touch ups outside, but my advice is be wary in low light environments because with this applicator you may end up looking blotchy. So probably bring with you a setting powder brush.


MATTE EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The powder is highly pigmented and the finish is a beautiful satin matte.

LASTING EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐
It lasts the whole day but given the weather you may need touch ups of course. 

QUALITY OVER PRICE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well worth the value of the item and perfect for combination and oily skin types.






KIKO MILANO: FIRST LOOK AT THE BRIGHT LIFT MASK

5 comments:
This is an honest non-sponsored review on this KIKO mask product as I have been duped many times by social media influencers into buying products that were not as advertised and were not worth the money. I love to test out KIKOs different type of masks. On this occasions, I chose the BRIGHT LIFT MASK. 





Why did I chose this one?

I felt that since living in London, the pollution does not help our skin stay hydrated and supple, on top of fatigue from the city lifestyle.

This mask is being advertised as an intensive lifting mask with marine collagen which instantly lifts, reduces the signs of fatigue and restores a youthful radiance. It is for all skin types.




How did it do on my combination skin?

The mask itself smells beautiful and it's consistency is quite dry in nature almost like a creamy clay that dries up quite quickly.

I leave it on for around 20 minutes.

THE RESULTS

Once, washed off with water, skin instantly appears tight and brighter. On top of that you will smell lovely.

MASK SMELL
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Smelled luscious.

MASK EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐
Tight skin and visibly brighter. The only reason I gave it 4 stars out of five is because you will definitely need a hydrating cream after this mask as I can guarantee your skin may feel quite tight.

BRIGHTNESS EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Skin which is visibly brighter.

QUALITY OVER PRICE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well worth the value of the item.



ALL IN ALL ITS A GREAT MASK THAT DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS, SO ITS GREAT TO BUY IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BRIGHTEN YOUR COMPLETION AND HAVE TIGHTER SKIN.

I STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO USE THE HYDRA PRO DAY CREAM IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS MASK.

How did it do on my teeth?



Charbon Noir Natural Teeth whitening powder and Bamboo Toothbrush.

I am a devoted coffee lover and as such that has a toll on my teeth, so I have to ensure they are kept white by different means. I have done on a previous occasion Zoom teeth whitening at the dentists and oh gosh that was incredibly painful for 2-3 days. So I've decided to opt for a more natural method that I can try out in the commodity of my home. I can say that after only one use I was pleasantly surprised, I can assure you that there was an improvement of one shade. You get the whitening powder with the bamboo toothbrush and that's important as the toothbrush besides being eco friendly as it's made of bamboo has charcoal activated bristles that together with the charcoal activated powder pick up all the impurities and to my surprise I read that it goes as far as absorbing even bacteria and viruses.

CHARBON NOIR TEETH NATURAL WHITENING POWDER

POWDER SMELL AND TASTE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The powder had no smell nor taste.

POWDER FEELING WHILST BRUSHING TEETH

ADVICE
Be wary that when you put the powder on the brush you may have fallout and also spraying during brushing. However, it's very easy to remove if you have had fallout or stains from the spraying when brushing.

CHARBON NOIR BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH

FEELING ON TEETH
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Perfect for spreading the powder on teeth.

BRISTLES AND DESIGN
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I love the design and the concept behind it. Eco friendly and well designed for it's purpose.

I personally got also the Charbon Noir whitening Charcol toothpaste for sensitive teeth to use in conjunction and also because it is designed for sensitive teeth.


PASTE SMELL AND TASTE
⭐⭐⭐⭐
It had a minty fresh smell and taste.

PASTE FEELING WHILST BRUSHING TEETH

How did it do on my combination skin?


Charbon Noir Charcoal Soap

I love that it smells like old school soap which my grandparents used to use when I was a child. Upon application it immediately felt like your skin is instantly lathered and fresh. What i love about it also is that it contains the activated carbon attracting all the impurities and oils that tend to clog pores, so it works great as a skin prep. I love that from a dark colour it becomes a white foam, so unlikely to stain clothing while using it. 

One further use I read about but haven't tested is that you may use the foam of this soap to reduce and possibly eliminate dandruff.


THE RESULTS

It did great on my skin that tends to be sensitive to certain products. I did not have any redness or dryness the day I used it nor the days after that.

SOAP SMELL
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Smells of childhood memories.

SOAP EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐
It works exactly as advertised. Skin looks clean and prepped. You may ask yourself why 4 stars, that's because I do not recommend you use it without getting the Charbon Noir Blackhead removal mask, so that you can get the best possible results.

QUALITY OVER PRICE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well worth the value of the item


How did it do on my combination skin?


Charbon Noir Blackhead Removal Mask

The black paste smells exactly similar to the Nivea cream. I initially tried it only on a little part of my nose to make sure I didn't develop any kind of reaction. Subsequently, I used it on my nose, forehead and chin. I enjoyed the fact that I don't have to worry of the ingredients unlike other brands who use glue derivate products.


THE RESULTS

My advice is that you leave the product in for 25 minutes at least and make sure it's COMPLETELY dry so that it can remove all the impurities on your skin.  
It did well overall on my skin. My skin felt clean and fresh.

MASK SMELL
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Smells delightful.

MASK EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐
It works exactly as advertised. It took care of all the impurities that accumulate because of pollution or makeup. If you are looking for an extreme effect thankfully it doesn't have those as that would be too much for the skin. Reason why I gave it 4 stars was just in case some of you tried it and expected my five stars to suggest it removed very forcefully all impurities.

QUALITY OVER PRICE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well worth the value of the item.
