First thing I want and have to say is that this is not a sponsored post! Born Pretty Store have decided to send me a few things and to be honest, I was expecting some poor quality things, considering that it is a Chinese store. However, when I received these items, I was truly impressed and I’m going to tell you why. They have makeup tools and makeup products, nail art supplies, jewelry and everything is super cheap and super nice! Also, they have free shipping world wide. This is what I got:
The first thing is nail art glitter powder in 1325. Even though it is really pretty and kind of Christmasy, it was the least exciting for me. However, that is only because the rest of them are so impressive! The glitter is green and red, and I thought it would be perfect for the holiday season.
Once you apply the glitter on your nails, it looks kind of like one color, but the green and red stil show a bit. However, once I applied my top coat, it turned this weird brownish color. The only problem is that the glitter is too finely milled. If it was just one color, it would be gorgeous, but since it has at least two colors, I think it should have been a tiny bit thicker. This was $2-3 (it’s discounted at the moment).
2. Eyeshadow powder in #7
The next thing I got was this eyeshadow powder in #7. Now this one is extremely impressive and to be honest, I didn’t expect it to be half the quality it is. It is this golden, shimmery powder, that I first thought was glitter powder for nails, as well. Here is a swatch with a makeup brush:
And then I opened it! The first thing I didn’t expect was the color. I thought it would be as glittery as it looks in the pan, but it’s a really pretty shimmery color, that can almost be a highlighter. When I dipped my finger, I swatched it on my hand and my finger was left gold. This was just one swipe! I really recommend these pigments! I am probably going to order more 🙂 This was around $3 (it’s also discounted at the moment).
3. Flat contouring brush
The last thing is a flat contouring brush. This is the softest brush I’ve ever tried without a doubt!
It is super dense, just the right size, so that you can apply bronzer under your cheek bones and it’s long enough, so that you can control the application perfectly. Also, it’s quite stiff, and it doesn’t bend, so you don’t have to worry that it will move around when applying your bronzer. The brush was $7.07 (now discounted at $3.99).
