Sbibit Makeup Spoons and Sbib – Review and Photos

Sbibit Werk It and Twerk It Makeup Spoons

How many times have you put on your outfit, did your makeup and then eye shadow residue or a drop of foundation got on your ensemble? This definitely has happened to me so many times that I have lost count.

Enter, the Sbib. Your outfit’s newly employed bodyguard. This lightweight and compact bib is perfect for protecting your perfectly styled outfit from stains and messes.

There are two different Sbib designs, the Carrie (pictured below) and Packo. Sbibit also has a Happy Couple combo for the bride and groom on their big day. Keep the wedding dress you said “yes” to mess free. After your big day, you can use the Sbib to apply your daily makeup, eating or even feeding your bundle of joy.

One of my favorite products that Sbibit carries are the Werk It and Twerk It Makeup Spoons. As a makeup junkie, never will I have to put foundation and/or concealer on the top-side of my hand again. The Werk It side is perfect for your work day makeup and then when you are ready to hit a night on the town, you can touch up your makeup with the Twerk It side of the spoon. Adorable, right?!

The set comes with five different spoon sizes, to cater to your needs. They are ideal for mixing foundations and concealers to achieve the perfect color.The spoons also have a flat base to prevent from tipping over.

DIY: Lavender Facial Mist For Clear Skin

DIY Lavender Facial Mist For Clear Skin

Most people are familiar with lavender as a sedative, a flowering plant that calms nerves, helps with anxiety, depression and stress. What most people don’t know, is that lavender has some beautifying properties as well.

Lavender which is an antiseptic and has anti-inflammatory properties can help with acne, reduce swelling, redness, and even helps with eczema by relieving itching. Lavender also helps with skin ageing by boosting the circulatory system increasing flows of oxygen and nutrients to stem cells, meaning less wrinkles.

I am going to teach you how to create a refreshing and easy facial mist that will help you with acne. This spray has helped me tremendously. My skin feels a lot softer and I have noticed fewer breakouts.

Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette Review and Photos

Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette

If you’re looking for an everyday makeup palette then the Urban Decay Naked2 Basics is for you. The new palette has more cooler tones compared to its sister, the Naked Basics palette.

The palette has six brand new taupe-hued shades, five of them are matte (Stark, Frisk, Cover, Primal, Undone) and one of them (Skimp) is a semi-matte shade, an ideal colour for highlighting.

This palette can we worn alone (perfect for a daytime, for school or even for the office) or use any of the colours as a starting point for any look.

I couldn’t wait to play with this eyeshadow palette. I love blending Cover and Primal together for the crease using UD’s double-ended eyeshadow brush and I blend it out with Frisk using a fluffy eye shadow brush. It gives a very subtle smokey eye without looking too harsh.

The UD Naked2 Basics palette retails for $29, and you can purchase it at Sephora.

I took some pictures of the palette and did some swatches, that you can check out in the gallery! CONTINUE READING…
