The Magic Smoky Powder Shadow Sticks are water resistant but easily blendable eyeshadow sticks. They're available in eight colours, I have burnt black, a matte black. They're easy to apply, no matter whether you want to use them as an eyeliner or to create a smoky eye look. I like to apply them as near to my lashline as possible and then just blend them, either with a thin brush to create a softer line or by using my finger to achieve a smoky eye look. They do last for a long time but you have to be careful when you apply them because the color transfers to the rest of the eyelid if you haven't worked the shadow stick yet. After blending it a little, it stays where it should.
As you can see you may apply a thin line and smudge it and the result is very soft:
I really like the idea of the Magic Smoky Powder Shadow Sticks, it's extremely easy and quick to create a smoky eye. And who doesn't like an effortless but pretty eye look?
Now things are getting really exciting:
The new Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potions are available! They're highly pigmented liquid lipsticks with a satin finish. They contain special pigments which reflect the light in a way that reduces the appearance of uneven or dry patches. Application is very easy due to the curved applicator and the colour glides on beautifully. I feel like they need about a minute to really set but after that they stay the whole day and honestly, the lip potion didn't even smudge while having lunch! Pretty impressive!
The Liquid Lip Potions are available in twelve colours. The one in the picture is 410 Vague Obsession, an absolutely perfect nude if you ask me. They contain a time release encapsulated moisture complex (sounds really fancy to me) with hyaluronic acid, avocado, jojoba and sunflower oil. This doesn't only sound good, it actually works! My lips didn't feel dry while or even after wearing the lip potion.
The Pure Color Envy Lip Voluminizer is a voluminizing and moisturizing lip product. After applying it tingles a little and feels cooling. Even though it looks pink, it isn't really pink but adjusts to the lip colour you're wearing. I like the feeling on my lips but I couldn't really see a difference in volume from wearing a normal lip gloss but my lips are quite voluminous I think. You may wear the Lip Voluminizer on its own, I like the natural and pinkish colour.
And this is me wearing all the mentioned products (and also the EL New Dimension shape + sculpt face kit) together:
The Magic Smoky Powder Shadow Sticks are available for CHF 28, the Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion for CHF 44 and the Pure Color Envy Lip Voluminizer for CHF 36. I'm already a fan of the Liquid Lip Potions because they're lovely and comfortable to wear and last long. The Magic Smoky Powder Shadow Sticks are great for an effortless everyday smoky eye and also to create a more intense evening look. I'm a little disappointed by the fact that the colour does transfer a bit at first but maybe my eyelids are slightly oily. If you've tried this product, please let me know if you faced the same "problem".
The Lip Voluminizer is fun to wear but I guess it's a bit of a princess product. It feels lovely and refreshing, adds some moisture, a bit of volume but you know, I guess I would survive without it. Anyway, the quality of all three products is beautiful and they're all easy to apply and comfortable.
What are your thoughts on these products?
