Review: Nutrimetics Galaxy Marbleyes eyeshadow

Packaging

The outer cardboard box has graffiti writing on it with a round cut-out hole in the back which shows the shade colour.

The baked eyeshadow is housed in a round plastic container. To let you see what colour you’re picking up from your vanity, there is a clear plastic window.

First – let me just say that I am not a huge fan of baked eyeshadows. They just seem to be fall out city unless used wet and we all know how lazy I am!

The shade I have, Galaxy, is a bronze with hints of brown.

Galaxy makes for a pretty multi-dimensional look for both day and night time. Whilst it isn’t very pigmented, it is easily buildable. There is also some glitter fall out which is to be expected from a baked eyeshadow.

I recommend using these with an eye primer to maximise wear time. I got about six hours of wear with a primer and about three hours without primer before creasing occurred.

Review: Nutrimetics Lash Lightning Mascara

Nutrimetics Lash Lightning Mascara

Packaging

This mascara, like this lip gloss I reviewed recently, has a manual switch on top of the cap to switch the LED light on/off.

There is a mirror on the side allowing on-the-go applications.

Product

Lash Lightning comes in just one shade – blackest black.

The brush is nothing special. It looks like your typical mascara brush. It coats my lashes nicely in one go. (Sorry guys I am horrible at mascara reviews.) I’ll just let the pictures do the talking….

As you can see from the pictures, the mascara doesn’t lengthen. What it does  do nicely is separation and lasting all day without smudging. It makes  a great everyday mascara as it’s not too dramatic. I usually reserve my special dramatic results mascaras for night time but during the day, I love a natural looking mascara.

Trick or treat with Nutrimetics

Did you know that two thirds (64%) of Aussie women admit that they only change their ‘looks’ every few years – or even less! I know I stick to a ‘fail-safe’ look. Do you?

A couple of days ago, I was sent a wonderful Halloween package from Nutrimetics and included was a page full of Halloween beuaty tips. I’m not a fan of Halloween looks mainly because I’m not creative lol.

Trick or treat with Nutrimetics

nc Illusion colour palatte (RRP: $39AUD, available til January 2012)

Nutrimetics nc Illusion colour palette

This palette has 4 baked eyeshadows. There’s the blue with silver (1), bronze (2), teal/green with gold (3) and an off-white shade (4).

The eyeshadows are nicely pigmented (that’s with no primer and like 2 swipes!) and smooth. They do have a scent though – like a crayon-y plastic smell.

Nutrimetics tips for the ‘purrr-fect cat’s eyes’?

Step 1: Using a light shade of eye shadow such as (4), highlight under the brow, and sweep across the lid.

Step 2: With an angled shadow brush, sweep a warmer colour, like (2), across the crease, working from the inside of the eye, out to the edge. Use the shape of your eyebrow to guide where the shadow line finishes.

Step 3: Define the lash line using a liquid liner (check out Nutrimetics’ offering down below) flicking the brush outwards at the outer corner of your eye. For a dramatic look, thicken the line and extend the length as required.

The result? A cut crease!

For a more subtle eye (what I opted for!), sweep (4) across the lid, using a conservative amount of colour. Skip step 2 and in step 3, create a more subtle liner by creating a smaller flick at the outer corner of your eye.

This liquid eyeliner is amazing! I’m a newbie at applying anything that ain’t pencil liner to my top lids. The brush is fine enough to do thin lines but also easy enough should you want to do thicker lines. Dries quite fast too so I don’t have to keep my eyes shut for a ridiculous amount of time .

The brush head is made from silicone and is flexible thus allowing for precise lining :)

Take a look at what I did on my first application! Too easy xx

nc Youth Renewal lipstick in Shebang (RRP$25AUD)

Nutrimetics nc Youth Renewal lipstick in Shebang

Nutrimetics’ youth renewal lipsticks contain a hydrating inner core (see below) that has lip plumping ingredients and decrease the appearance of fine lines.

The shade I received – Shebang, is vibrant bright red. It tugged a tiny bit when I applied it but this may be due to the fact that my lips were quite dry.

Maybe it’s my nose but I didn’t really detect a scent at all. I love red lipsticks because it brightens up my face instantly without the need for the whole ‘shebang’ of make up! Love love :)
