Hi Guys!!! Hope you’re all enjoying 2016 so far!! I thought id do this piece on ‘My Best Beauty Buys in 2015’ because Im so happy with some of my purchases this year and I feel i’ve had lots of time to use and experiment with these babies and i’m now confident in recommending them to you !
Number 1 is without a doubt my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade. If you follow me on Snapchat (WildflowerDblog) you will have heard me ranting and raving about it ! As everyone knows its important to have your brow game strong these days with Catwalk Queen Cara Delevigne pioneering the big brow trend as well as everyones favourite phrases – ‘brows on fleek’ and ‘on point’ and like I’ve already mentioned ‘brow game strong’. These are major compliments nowadays and what better way to draw them on than by drawing on your very own eyebrows ! Ok not really …seriously … these products were made to enhance your own natural features and what better way to follow the trend than purchase this lil beaut! Its $18.00USD and you can check out the extensive colour range here (with 11 colours to choose from)
Link Sephora ABH Dip Brow
Its also avail on Nordstrom (which does ship to Ireland) but the shipping is ridiculous -its more expensive than the product but if you REALLY want this product you may wanna check it out !
I use the ‘medium brown’ and although its a small pot a little will go a long way so i reckon it will last for agessssss!!
I got mine in the states but if your not fortunate enough to be making a visit there soon then I suggest the Inglot AMC eyebrow pots in your preferred shade which are a dupe of the ABH dip brow and there are twelve shades so you’re sure to find the one thats perfect!
Suggested Usage for either of these products:
-They are best applied with an angled brow brush with short, stiff bristles. You can easily outline and fill a perfect eyebrow.
-After applying the desired amount of color, be sure to blend with a clean spooley brush.
-Never apply the pomade by directly putting your brush into the pot and applying the product on your brows, instead dip it in and remove the excess from the sides or the lid .
My Second Favourite Beauty Buy of 2015 is without a doubt the Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette which is the Holy Grail of Contouring , another make up trend thats taking the world by storm! I really got into the whole contouring process last year and so I did some research when it came to buying a contouring palette and this came up on top of my Wishlist! I honestly have to say it hasn’t disappointed ! I looked into the Anastasia Beverly Hills pallettes and while I did buy one back in August, it disappeared along with a couple of hundred dollars of make up from MAC and Sephora with a bag that was ‘misplaced’/stolen on my trip back home. GUTTED was not the word ! I was torn up by this and of course my boyfriend Darren (like most men) didn’t understand the severity of it ! The weeks of planning beforehand of what I would buy, The creating and editing of wish lists online, the calculating, the reading of blogs, reviewing of youtube accounts, the final draft and of course the painful separation from the credit card while they debit my account ! Anyway I’m over it ! I Swear! Moving on…After some further research before a friends visit to Vegas to get married (congrats Jenny!!) I decided on the Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette and she picked it up for me (thanks Jenny!!) I LOVE the Kat Von D Shade and Light Pallette the pigment is amazing and you need not double dip! If your into your contouring too then this is the palette for you!! It was $46.00 and oh so worth it !I mean check out those grey-ish browns !!!
I also bought the Kat Von D Shade and Light double ended brush thats perfect for your powder contouring ! It was $36.00.
My Third and Final Favourite Beauty Buy of 2015 was the Smashbox Shapematters Palette and its no way the least ! This palette is a bit of an “all-rounder”, its got your eyebrow kit, your contouring palette and a lovely selection of eyeshadows (9 of them) annnnnnd its easily available for purchase in Ireland ! yaaaaaaaayyyyy! What I love most about this palette is it has it all! The brow kit is a combination of a clear wax and two powder shadows and also included in the palette is a double ended brush. One side is an angled brush that works well with the brow kit and the other is more of an eyeshadow brush. Whats more there are heaps of youtube videos on this palette so check them out for inspiration! This Palette is 76Euro and its available here :
I absolutely love having each of these products in my make up collection, let me know if you have any other recommendations , I love buying new make up (as you can probably tell from this post !!)
