ELES Cosmetics - Eyes, Brows & Lips Review

 Enter my international giveaway to win 1 of 4 nail polish bundle packs!

Hey guys!! Today I have 3 products from ELES cosmetics to show you! I don't wear much make up as it is but when I do I loveeee wearing mascara, filling in my brows and of course the lips! I could go without wearing no other make up on my face but I love making my lips bright and pretty! Today I am showing you the ELES - Brow Blender Pencil (RRP $44), ELES - Lush Mascara (RRP $35.75) and ELES - Micro Bubble Lipstick in the shade Melon (RRP $39.50). 

ELES - Brow Blender Pencil is a dual-ended pencil that gives a soft-powder finish. The pencil creates soft, natural looking colour and doesn't allow harsh lines to be drawn on, even those with an unsteady hand! The cap has a built-in brush for blending and shaping brows. I particularly love the brush for brushing my eyebrows upwards and really filling in the gaps that I see need filling. I also really love how soft the colour pay-off is, it has left my brows looking natural and not too "drawn" on. This is a must-have product for anyone that is pretty happy with their natural shape and state of their brows but need a little something to fill in a few sparse spots and an overall cleaned up look!

ELES - Lush Mascara is the bomb! Hahah no but seriously, the hollow-fibre brush lifts and separates and the formula is protein rich which helps builds strength and flexibility for your eyelashes. The formula also includes nine botanicals, plus Vitamin A, E & C to condition and nourish your lashes. Not to mention, this is by far, the only mascara that claims to be "clump-free" and actually lives up to the name!! No matter how many layers you apply there is absolutely NO clumps and this is a really amazing product. This makes my eyelashes look so natural but gives them enough length and volume to make my eyes look more awake and prettier. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Cannot rave it enough!

Lush Mascara
ELES - Micro Bubble Lipstick in Melon is a rich, creamy lipstick which provides a protective treatment in one. The website states that all ELES - Micro-Bubble Lipsticks are the perfect choice after dermatological procedures, such as lip collagen injections. “Micro-bubbles” continually release conditioners to keep lips soft and colour fresh for hours. I haven't had any procedures and don't think I will for now but this product is seriously creamy and moisturising. Melon is a gorgeous bright melon/coral creme lipstick with very high pigmentation. It doesn't dry the lips out and keeps them feeling smooth and hydrated even after 3 hours of wear! I really like this colour on my lips and love how moisturising it is. Win!! P.s - Love the packaging on these lipsticks, a simple gunmetal sleek case, so cool!

OPI - Bond Girls Liquid Sand

 Enter my international giveaway to win 1 of 4 nail polish bundle packs!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend! Mine was filled with lots of eating as my mum came home from Paris and brought back so many goodies! Today I have 4 OPI - Bond Girls Liquid Sand colours to show you. For each picture I applied 1 coat of OPI - Nail Envy and 2 coats of Liquid sand with no top coat. I just have to say that I have absolutely loved the colours i've tried and they are all amazingly stunning! I have never found something so unique and beautiful until I tried these polishes so KUDOS to OPI with their clever ideas and technology! The formula on these were super easy and applied easier than some cremes by OPI! Here are the swatches.

Honey Ryder* - A gorgeous pale gold with reflective gold glitters scattered through-out. This was my absolute favourite from the collection and literally looks like you have gold nugget on your nails


Jinx* - A duochrome orange and red-orange with gold shimmer in it. Stunning 

Pussy Galore* - A super pretty light pearly pink. So feminine and clean looking.

Solitaire* - A really delicate bright white with pearlescent characteristics and silver glitters.

So which colour is your favourite from the collection? My definite favourite is Honey Ryder and suggest you pick it up if it's the only colour you do get! Thanks for reading and speak to you all soon!
