Holler !!! Hope you’re all doing simply fab ❤
Remember a couple of posts ago when i was drooling over the Bombshell products I received in my Ipsy and told you I’d do a review soon. Well, today is that day and I think i finally got down to washing my hair so it doesn’t look like something the cat dragged in when i did the pictures. Pictures are never easy, especially when you have to take them yourself .. for lack of professional photographer, selfies are all that’s on the table today 😛
So before i digress, back to Bombshell Cosmetics. Just in case you missed my earlier intro , Bombshell Cosmetics is the brainchild of Tonya Thompson, a self-confessed makeup fanatic. Conceived in 2011 and while still in its infancy, it has positively managed to make big waves in the make-up scene no doubt due to its high performance products and tongue in cheek names.
I received 3 Be a Bombshell beauty products in my Ipsy Bag’s.. enough I think to create an everyday look. But before I proceed, be forewarned… pictures here with me and no-make up on … aargh, put those sunnies on 😛
So what exactly is a ‘One Stick’? Something which I doubt asked myself too as I peered at this beautiful colour. According to the Bombshell site the ‘One Stick’ triples up as a multiple stick with a smooth texture which can be applied to eyelids, cheeks or lips as a gloss for the perfect pop of color anywhere!
Well, because red and pinks do not work on my eyelids and I already have a lip crayon, it was a natural decision that this would go on my cheeks. Being a classic noob, i attempted to do my best.. but silly me, this was so easy to apply, you don’t need a rocket science degree to work with it 🙂
I was initially a bit apprehensive thinking it was a little on the darker side, very pigmented no doubt so I smudged some off with a tissue and it was perfect after. Next I pulled out their eyeliner which is nice and sturdy, it’s like using a whiteboard marker and while you may think it’s too chunky, actually liked the full grip and it made my hand even more steady to draw that perfect line.
So after setting the tone with the ‘one stick’ blusher and eyeliner, was ready to try on the lip crayon. Interestingly titled shameless, I fell in love with the colour almost instantly.
As you can see, it looks pretty glossy with shimmer in it, so I figured it work well for the day as it looked light enough to wear … I tend to shy away from darker, bold colours for day use as I do not want the kids ( and or parents ) at my kids schools to think all I do is get dolled up before going out for the day 😛
Okay, so bear in mind, all i used were these 3 items, no mascara, no lip liner, no nothing else and this was the final ….
So what did you think, Bombshell worthy? Could i pass muster as a bombshell with this look on ? Well hubster and kiddos were home when I was doing this shoot and I asked them how I looked after… to which the boys ( all of them, big and small ) told me I looked absolutely Bee-You-Ti-Full .. as for my lil’ princess.. she asked me to stop playing with ‘make-up’ and go read a book.
So this one post is dedicated to my daughter.. when you grow and up and start experimenting with make up …. i’m going to join you too .
I loved playing with these Be a Bombshell products and i reckon I’ll be using them on a daily basis as they’re just great to bring out your inner beauty without being too overpowering. if you too want to try some Bombshell products, they’re available on their website http://beabombshellcosmetics.com with worldwide shipping. A little pricey after conversion to Ringgit no doubt, but great everyday products that you will well use no doubt.
So here I am signing off for now…. Here’s to a Happy Friday and wonderful weekend ahead. CIAO
