Benefit Gimme Brow

When you say brows, there are only two brands that really made a name for themselves in the beauty world. On the one hand we have Anastasia Beverly Hills and on the other there is Benefit. I haven’t tried much by ABH: the brand just doesn’t appeal to me and I have a tendency to prefer drugstore brands for brow products. One of my favorite brow products is Essence’s Make Me Brow, which is a dupe for none other for Benefit’s Gimme Brow. It was about time, I tried the original, don’t you think?

Kokie Be Bright concealer

Today I will be reviewing the first product from my New York Haul. Whenever I travel I like picking up products that I won’t be able to get at home. So before I leave I always scout out some brands that I hope to find. One of those brands for my recent New York trip is Kokie. This US only brand came out since the last time I was in the States, so I hadn’t given it a chance yet. I picked up a few bits from their line and I was most curious after their concealer.

Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening vs Soft Blur foundation

In today’s video I am trying something new! I bought two mini foundations by Benefit over the summer. They revamped their foundation line and rebranded it to be called Hello Happy. Last year they already launched the Soft Blur: a lightweight blurring foundation that I was very interested in. Then when I was in Sephora in Paris, I found they had just launched a new, medium coverage foundation called the Flawless Brightening foundation. And both came in a mini size! Perfect for trying out of course and that is exactly what we’ll be doing in this video: I am comparing these foundations in a 10+ hour wear test.

So I am super excited about today’s eyeshadow review as I am reviewing the Natascha Denona Gold eyeshadow palette. This bougie, expensive palette is one that I ummed and arred about for months before biting the bullet last summer. The reason for my hesitation? I bought the Lila and didn’t love it. I just didn’t get the hype these pricey shadows were getting. Then I saw more and more people talking about this and I decided to swatch it when I was in Paris. It was love at first swatch.

What I Watch: Downton Abbey

What I Watch: Downton Abbey

What rock have I been hiding under? I feel like I am the last person to have watched this ITV period drama. After watching one period drama at the start of October, I ended up digging straight into another after I came back from New York. With Downton Abbey having 6 series of roughly 10 episodes each with some lengthier ones that were Christmas specials, it was nothing something you binge in a weekend. This is my Downton Abbey review.
