Being really into makeup, I am actually really guilty of sticking to the same brands every time I get new products. You’d think it would be the other way around, that I’d be trying more brands more often, rather than sticking to the same one. Bagsy Beauty is a brand that was completely new to me up until two months ago, and I’ve been using their products ever since. Goes to show, new brands can live up to the expectations of the ones you love dearly.
Bagsy Beauty* is a British brand that have a small byt perfectly designed collection of easy-to-choose, easy-to-use everyday beauty essentials that are designed to fit inside your handbag. An edit of the best of every beauty bag, the range has been crafted with an attention to detail from the beautiful designs and cleverly compact packaging to the versatile formulas that are a joy to use.
I’ve tried a few products from their range now, and today I’m going to tell you all about them. They range from hair care to makeup and accessories, so I’m sure they’ll be something you’ll like to. Firstly, we have the Wonder Wand Concealing & Illuminating Duo. This little guy is really really handy when it comes to wanting quick but flawless makeup. At first glance I thought this was a contour and highlighting stick, but I was very wrong. The darker side is a concealer, one that hides blemishes and conceals under-eye darkness, whilst the other side is for illuminating the skin for a natural sheen. The concealer is full coverage, so I tend to use this on redness and spots and use the creamy illuminating shade as either a makeup base or as a base for my highlight as this stick really makes all highlighters pop. The longevity of both products are very long wearing, they last as well as all my other favourite makeup products – a good 10 hours.
Next is the Soft Matte Lip Colour, in a very gorgeous and girly pink shade, Living The Dream. This lipstick is definitely a matte finish, but it so comfortable on the lips. Its pigment isn’t quite intense but gives a really subtle but pretty pinkness to the lips, making them your lips but better. For more pigment I use a pink-nude lip liner underneath, either MAC’s Soar or NYX in Natural. It also lasts really well.
A handbag necessity for every girl is a compact mirror, and believe it or not, I didn’t have one up until this arrived. Its packaging is soft and durable and also small enough to fit into those smaller pockets in your handbag so it’s an easy find. One half is magnified, which more often than not I choose not to use (many of you might know why that side is not the preferred choice) but it’s so great for touch ups.
For the hair we have what every girl relies on when you’ve got no time on your hands, Hair Wonder, Bagsy’s dry shampoo. I am guilty of using this quite often, but I’m glad I’ve found one I really like. Infused with vitamin B5 and oat oil, this dry shampoo gives hair an instant refresh and lift whilst taking away the oils from your roots. It’s a real quick fix to, as it doesn’t stain your hair grey like some do.
