You guys remember that post I wrote on how great I think Younique cosmetics are right? Well since then I’ve had the pleasure of trying even more of the products, the ones I really wanted to try but didn’t have the chance to yet. So here they are along with my own honest opinions on each individual item.
(FYI – I am not a Younique presenter, honestly I just really enjoy the products! I also have no interest in becoming a presenter!!)
Touch Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation
This powder is a God send! Honestly the coverage is flawless!! I don’t really like my whole face to look completely matte so I only use this on parts of my face when I’m doing my everyday makeup, I use it along the creases of my eyes to set my concealer and on top of imperfections, again this is to set my foundation/concealer. Its a great little must have for any makeup bag, plus its hand held and also has a mirror incorporated into the compact for those little touch up sessions! I find that this sets my makeup really well and gives off a really clean, imacculate finish which I love!! This is a keeper & with 10 different shades to choose from you shouldn’t have trouble finding one to suit your skin tone.
BB Flawless Completion Enhancer
I love my BB cream! I really wanted one for those care free days where I’m at home with the kids & don’t really have the time to do a full face of makeup, call it your little bottle of pick me up if you will. It helps me on those days to feel like I kind of have my shit together. The BB cream has such a lavish feel to it, it smells great & feels super hydrating on the skin (which for me is a massive plus). Ofcourse with it being a BB cream it doesn’t have the same coverage as the concealer or foundation but it really does aid in making you feel slightly human again! I’d say this is yet another must have, I love mine! There are 6 shades to choose from which range in light to dark skin tones (which actually not every cosmetics company does) this definitely has my vote, you can also team this up with the powdered foundation!
Glorious Face & Eye Primer
Now this is a product I’ve wanted to try for AGES!!! I’d never used a primer in my life which when I think about it now was a rookie mistake! The purpose of using a primer is so that your makeup goes on a lot smoother (hello flawless) and will also stay on for longer. I don’t know about you but if I don’t use a primer my makeup goes from ‘on fleek’ to looking ‘tired and a bit beat up’. I thought it was finally time I try out a primer but I didn’t know what to expect, so when I squirted a small drop onto my finger it was all very new to me! This primer has a serum like texture, it glides on the skin really nicely and you only need a small pea sized amount to cover your whole face. Since using the primer I’ve noticed that my makeup stays on much longer. Now I can do my makeup in the morning and at the end of the day its still looking as fleeky as ever!
Lip bonbons tinted lip balm
Firstly I have to say how much I LOVE that these are called lip bonbons!! These are great, there are 5 different colours and they feel gorgeous on. I have 3 of them now & I love all of them. They are perfect for those early morning outings (like taking the kids to school) when you want some colour on those lips but feel like a lipstick might be a bit too much! They feel really nourishing and hydrating and you totally forget that you’ve got anything on at all. You can walk down the street still feeling confident even though its a subtle blast of colour! Another perk is that the tube is not only really cute and sleek but they have incorporated a twist on and off lid to help secure the balm for your handbag. I know all too well of lip balms that become loose in your bag that upon finding them they’re usually lid-less & covered in crap! Younique solved this problem by making sure they stay secure. Its the little things right!?
