Face Of The Day Featuring Born Pretty Store

Hello lovelies! I'm back and I thought I'd change things up with a face of the day seeing as I hadn't done one in a while. I also know a lot of you liked my latest eBay bargains post (click HERE if you missed it) so I thought you guys would be interested in hearing about some more bargains. Today's post features a few products from Born Pretty Store. People seem to love their makeup brushes and nail art products on Instagram so if you're handy in the nail department (see what I did there) you might like to check them out. Unfortunately, I'm so bad at nail art that my attempt at polkadots look more like polkasplodges... I guess I'll stick to the makeup side ey? Here's my thoughts on a few of the products I tested out.

Let's start with the Born Pretty Eyeshadow Palette* $9.56 (around £6). It comes with 15 matte shades, a sponge tip applicator and a really good mirror. There's nothing worse than one of those face warping mirrors. You all know what I'm talking about, the ones where you're tempted into plucking half of your eyebrow off. The colours in this eyeshadow palette are so beautiful but I had a little difficulty getting pigmentation from two or three of the lighter shades. You have to give your brush a good few swirls for it to pick up product which is slightly disappointing but they are buildable. On the other hand, the darker shades seem to be packed with pigmentation although harder to blend. It's hit and miss really. A little tip - if the pigmentation isn't great spray your brush with setting spray first. That's what I've been doing with this product and I'm able to get more use out of the lighter colours.

These Born Pretty Crisscross False Eyelashes* (#1) are perfect for a dramatic evening look. The lashes have a plastic feel to them which I was worried about to begin with. It's hard to describe but I actually really liked them once they were on. I'm going on my first night out in over a year at the weekend (wish me luck) and I'm considering wearing them again then. Although they have a plastic feel, I had no problem shaping them around my eyes and they stayed on all day. With a coat of mascara, I was also able to curl them upwards. Not bad for $0.99.

I have a Born Pretty 10% discount code for full priced items  - MTH10 if anyone fancies a browse.

If you're interested in what I have on my face:

Foundation: Mac Studio Fix Fluid mixed with The Body Shop's Lightening Foundation Drops
Concealer: Mac Studio Finish Concealer
Undereye Concealer: La Girl Pro Concealer 
Contour & Highlight: Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette
Blush: Makeup Revolution Blusher
Eyebrows: Benefit Browzings
Eyeliner: Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner
Mascara: YSL Luxurious Mascara
Lipstick: Menow Liquid Lipsticks Shade 26

What's your thoughts? Have you tried anything from Born Pretty Store before?

  1. I've tried one of their budget brush sets, but wasn't overly impressed. However, they also sent me some amazing false lashes, a lip liner and liquid lipstick and they're all of great quality. Love this look, Sophie!xx

  43. You always look so stunning and your photography skills are on point! I have heard of Born Pretty - they sent me some brushes for review but I asked them some questions about them and never heard back? I'm glad to see another review of them though for their makeup as I was very curious. Great review hun xx
