Designer Brands Haul

 Designer Brands generously sent me out a haul of their makeup to photograph and of course try out, so you will probably see my photos now and then shared on their social media.

If you haven't heard of Designer Brands they are an Australian drugstore brand known to sell designer quality product at an affordable price!

Longwear 24 Hour Foundation
Full Coverage, and SPF 15
Weighty bottle & Frosted glass
Classic Ivory
Nude Beige
True Beige
Warm Honey

I love that this foundation gives my skin a flawless look and seems similar to Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation in terms of full coverage.
 I am the shade 'Classic Ivory' which is a good match for my skin tone in winter, I've been using it a lot most days, it has definitely become a favourite!

BLUR Skin Perfector
3-in-1 Miracle Worker
I found this Blur Skin Perfector a really unique product, as you can use it in 3 ways-
1. You can wear it alone or use it a bit like a primer base to blur pores and fine lines.
2. Use it over makeup to stop your foundation from fading and extend the wear of your makeup.
3. Use to touch up your makeup where it can absorb excess oils without removing makeup. (Perfect for people with oily skin!)
The perfector comes in a block like form with a sponge to apply, but I found by just using your fingers works just aswell.

Mineral Eye Shadow
These are perfect little travel palettes and even better for beginners because with these eyeshadows comes a step by step application on what eyeshadow to use on your lid, crease, and brow bone etc.
The eyeshadows are numbered 1-4
1. Over the brow bone to highlight
2. Entre lid
3. Outer corner
4. To define top and bottom lashes
I got two from the collection-
Smokey Charcoal- Great for smokey eye look
Cocoa Brown- Gorgeous for a natural everyday look
I can't really fault these eyeshadows they are so pigmented and great to blend, these are also favourites from what I was sent!

BB Lip Balms
Though these seem more like lip glosses they are said to be hydrating on the lips.
At first I did not like the smell of these so I was hesitant to try them, but I did (for you guys) and they are like a lipgloss with a hint of colour, I'm still not sure about these maybe because their not really my fave type of lip product.
Barely Bare- Nude
Blush Pink- Soft pink
Belle Pink- Plum

Longwear Lipsticks
I love the packaging for these lipsticks as the lid colour matches the shade in the tube.
I'm a lipstick wearer most days so I was super excited to try these out, the pigment and formula is amazing, I would describe them as rich in colour and quite opaque with a satin finish.

Pink Beige- 'My lips but better' nude
French Rose- Baby Pink
Shocking Pink- Magenta Pink
Red Lust- Bold Red
Their have a great colour selection so I'm definitely keen to pick up some more up to add to my collection!

Beyond Amplifying Mascara
Tubing Formula- Lasts 24 Hours
A great everyday mascara but just because my eye lashes are long already I didn't see much of a difference in this mascara, it could be because I'm so use to my fave 'Roller Lash'.

Absolute Precision Liquid Eyeliner Pen
Smudge proof- 24 Hour Wear- Non-Drying- Luxe Felt Tip
I found this pen really easy to use, even though I'm still not a pro at eyeliner this made applying it a little bit easier! and I managed to do a cat eye flick...after a few attempts. 

Quick Colour Nail Polish
Touch dry in 30 seconds, great nail polish those these aren't colours I would have chosen apart from the nude shade 'Creme De La Creme' that I wore for a week before it started chipping!
Mauve delight- Shimmery Mauve
Pink Flamingo- Barbie Pink
Rich Orchid- Magenta Pink
Creme De La Creme- Beige Nude
