Who doesn't like discovering new beauty brands - especially when they come with lovely packaging to please your eye as well as your soul.
Bagsy Beauty is literally born as the staple item for your handbag, which is amazing considering I struggle with taking certain products on the go with me because they're either too big, bulky or just not safe enough to store in your handbag.
I have been looking more and more into featuring brands I haven't heard of/used before because we all know about Mac and Urban Decay but there's so much more out there! At first they reminded me a little of Benefit which has the most loud and lovely packaging, with the only difference being that Bagsy nailed it more thanks to sleeker compacts. I tested their products for over a month after their release and now I think I'm ready to introduce you all to this fabulous new brand.
Their Lip Velvet* liquid lipstick is hands down the best matte lip products I have tried in a very VERY long time. From the colour to the way it feels on the lips I cannot explain to you how shocked I am by the quality. It applies easily and it dries to a velvet finish where it doesn't move anywhere yet it's not drying at all. It won't show your lines or any signs of dryness. It's magic, I tell ya! If there's one product that has not left my purse since the day it arrived, it's this little guy right here! The colour lasts really well and after 5 hours it's still intact, unless you eat something greasy.
The Pretty Cheeks Velvet Blush* is the one product that scared me a little when I first saw it. To describe it, it's a domed-shape cream blush that you apply straight to your cheeks and blend with finger tips. I have never tried cream blushes before if I have to be honest, mainly because with my oily skin I was afraid they'd melt away and make me look like a horror-film clown. However my skin type has gone to combination now and I decided it was time to try something new and be a little more adventurous with my beauty choices. Honestly, I really liked this. It doesn't leave you looking as if a five year old has played with your face, the finish is actually really natural and sweet, making it hard to tell if it's your own cheeks getting slightly coloured or if you're wearing something.
The Ray of Sunshine Perfect Glow* is the bronzer I've seen many bloggers rave about which is what attracted my attention to this brand because I remember thinking "by WHO?".
This powder is a very smooth gem that doesn't look too orange but adds a nice warmth to the skin. I think it works perfectly for women who are on the pale to medium side of the spectrum and like to add a little glow and definition to their face. I have been using it now during summer because I am not going on holiday anywhere (sobs) but I still don't want to look as I did in winter. It's so nice that I have been wearing it on its own as well sometimes, especially when I'm in a hurry.
Now, last but certainly not least is another product that left me speechless because of its amazing pigmentation and the smooth way it applied - the Wow Lips* chubby stick. The finish is so rich and moisturising. I pair mine up with a lip liner usually to avoid any bleeding on the edges and I feel like Blair Waldorf. (Oh, I'm on season 5 of Gossip Girl - late to the party, yes - but OH MY GOD it's amazing. I love it)
Bagsy Beauty is definitely a brand worth checking out, their products are amazing and I am sure I will be purchasing more things to add to my collection on the next payday!
