Mini Younique Haul

IMG_7871 

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!?

    I’ve never tried anything by Younique because the pushy presenters put me off a bit but now I’ve heard how good the products are from someone who isn’t selling it, I think I’m going to have to give it a go! The powder sounds great and definitely like something I would use.

    • cheskaaanels May 10, 2016 / 5:58 am

      Oh man yeah I’ve heard so many bad things about pushy presenters its not cool at all but The products are worth making a purchase on thats for sure!

  2. Milly Youngman May 6, 2016 / 5:06 pm

    The Lip Bonbons look so cute! I have to say, I’ve been put off the brand by pushy presenters but you might just have swayed me to be interested again!

    • cheskaaanels May 6, 2016 / 5:47 pm

      Oh no! I know a lot of people that have had trouble with the presenters! I guess its a hard situation because anyone can just become one!! Honestly if you find the right one its a great experience I love their products xox

  3. anniebobs85 May 6, 2016 / 6:56 pm

  5. annalisanuttall May 8, 2016 / 7:52 am

    Hi there I like the sound of the touch mineral powder. xx

  6. Ana De Jesus May 8, 2016 / 8:45 am

    I have to confess I have never tried Younique products before but the mineral pressed foundation sounds like it might help mattify my oily skin which I need!

    • cheskaaanels May 8, 2016 / 10:00 am

      Oh this would defo help for that its incred!!! Xox

  7. katie May 9, 2016 / 9:21 am

  10. Bee May 9, 2016 / 11:36 am

    I love the lipbalm.
    I got it Asa gift once from a friend and after it was finnished, I never bough it again. Now you’ve reminded me and I’m heading over to buy one.

    • cheskaaanels May 9, 2016 / 12:21 pm

      Oh wow how long did it last? They only came out not long ago in March I think!

  11. Amy May 9, 2016 / 10:46 am

    Oh my gosh I wish my skin was a pristine as yours to wear such light products. I need full blown coverage and envy your beautiful skin (always seeing your instas!) I could probably at least try the primer from this little haul 🙂

    • cheskaaanels May 9, 2016 / 10:50 am

      Awwwh thank you!! Don’t be fooled haha I do break out in a few spots now and again! Ooo are we insta buddies? Yeah I’d really recommend the primer, I can always tell the difference when I don’t have it on now! Xox

  12. ratishagoyal May 9, 2016 / 1:31 pm

    Lip bonbons sound super cute. Just the thing I need. I’ll definitely going to check the colors.

  13. Nicolas Puegher May 9, 2016 / 1:58 pm

    Thanks, I know someone who will like to read this 🙂

  14. sensubhadrika May 9, 2016 / 3:16 pm

    Your blog makes me want to use those prodcuts but unfortunately for the highly sensitive skin of mine, I can only use natural and medicated products.

    • cheskaaanels May 9, 2016 / 3:18 pm

      Oh what a shame!! I know younique uses natural products but if you need specifically medicated stuff then you know your skin!! Xox

  15. Rosie Romance May 9, 2016 / 3:21 pm

    I’ve never used any of these products but the Glorious Face and Eye Primer has definitely caught my eye. I always use a primer, it keeps my makeup looking fresh for ages.

    I actually used to be a Younique presenter! I love their products! They are fabulous! Unfortunately we moved to Norway it is far to expensive to ship them over here!

    • cheskaaanels May 9, 2016 / 6:09 pm

      Oh wow! The products are divine! Oh no that sucks I hope they start opening up to Norway for you!

  17. Ana De Jesus May 9, 2016 / 6:36 pm

    I have oily skin so I definitely need a primer that could rectify my ‘beat up, end of the day’ makeup lol! I have never tried Younique but I have heard rave reviews about it.

  18. I am Vagabond May 9, 2016 / 6:52 pm

    Never heard of Younique presenters but seems like a great product.

  19. Nya May 9, 2016 / 7:50 pm

    Can you believe I have never tried Younique before? The products sound great! Maybe I’ll give it a try some time.

  20. Liz Mays May 9, 2016 / 9:31 pm

    The powder foundation sounds really nice. I haven’t tried their primer either but it does sound great!

    • cheskaaanels May 10, 2016 / 5:56 am

      Its all very lovely! I can’t help myself haha

  21. TOUCHOFGUCCI May 10, 2016 / 10:35 am

    This collection sounds amazing! And like you, I’ve never used a primer either eeek! But you’ve sold me… I think i’ll be picking up Yonique’s primer and their other products too!

      It’ll be on of the best decisions you make!! Haha

  22. Jess May 10, 2016 / 11:54 am

    Ah I’ve heard rave reviews about the lip balm! Got to admit, I laughed at the disclaimer, I’m always getting hassled to start selling Younique! In fairness though, some of the products are fab!

    • cheskaaanels May 10, 2016 / 1:42 pm

      Hahahaa yes me too!! If I wanted to I would so to have so many people ask me or tty to convince me gets annoying!

  23. Joanna May 10, 2016 / 1:36 pm

    I also love my BB cream, it’s perfect for when you don’t have time to put on makeup and, as you said, it makes you look human in the morning. And the best part is that it has SPF, so besides hydrating your skin, it also protects it from the sun.

  24. Kalliopi Sakellariou May 10, 2016 / 3:10 pm

    I think now I need a new foundation. Ha ha ! I love the way you describe things ! Think again for a carrier in sales!

  25. kenia mazariegos May 11, 2016 / 1:55 am

    Literally making a note to try all of them! Can’t wait!

  26. stylewithtina May 11, 2016 / 3:57 am

    Looks like you know what you are talking about! 😀 I don’t use cream on my face but I have heard good reviews about them!

    Thanks for the overview!

  27. Rose Sahetapy May 11, 2016 / 9:38 am

    I’ve never tried Younique’s products before but sounds like they are fabolous. The primer is the one that caught my attention for most. Keeping the make up stays longer is not easy, but the primer is what I need for this pupose.

  28. Euge Nia May 11, 2016 / 1:07 pm

    I’ve never heard of Younique before, seems like a great makeup brand! Hydration of body and skin go hand and hand, so I definitely should try this BB cream. 🙂 Thanks for the review!

  29. Jessica Ayun May 11, 2016 / 4:01 pm

    Looking for a new brand of BB cream and this looks worth to try. I love the Lip balm as well. 🙂

  30. Dani Fenton May 11, 2016 / 4:40 pm

    It took me ages to try using a primer, and the difference it makes is unreal! I’ll have to give some of these Younique products a try, the lip Bonbons sounds super cute and the bb cream sounds great aswell! Great post 😊

  31. Bhushavali N May 11, 2016 / 4:42 pm

    The products look good. I too love mineral pressed/loose powders. Its blends so well on the face! Haven’t ever used this brand so far. Thanks for the review. Will try it out.

  32. Dani Fenton May 11, 2016 / 4:50 pm

    It took me ages to start using a primer too, but the difference it makes to my make up is unreal! I’ve never used any Younique products, but I’ll maybe have to give them a go! The lip bonbons are super cute, and the bb cream sounds fantastic! Thanks for the review 😊
