I got new makeup from Roen, Stila, Eyeko and Kjaer Weis and more and thought I’d try it on and give mini reviews.
I recently received and bought some new makeup items and as I normally talk and write about skincare, I thought I’d try out all these products and see how they work! Most of these I tried for the first time and the only products that aren’t new were the concealer, highlight and blush.
[Edit: Since filming my video and writing this post I’ve discovered some things about Oskia, so I’m putting a pause in my support to them until the actually reply to the comments and provide a truthful apology. See this post by Arly, to understand what I’m talking about]
Oskia Nutri-Bronze Adaptive Sheer Tinted Serum* (£58, 30ml) is the perfect skincare makeup hybrid that gives a very light colour and is a bit reflective too. Glowy and perfect for summer. It also contains good for your skin ingredients like vitamin E, bakuchiol, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. Plus it adapts to your skin tone so you can wear it all year round. By the way if you buy this and you feel like the pipette doesn’t pick up any product, take it out of the bottle for a second to let some air in and it should work well! It was the only base I had and just concealed where necessary with my Laura Mercier concealer. For bronzer, I used the Stila Lip & Cheek Tint Stick (£19) in Sunkissed Bronze, it is super creamy. It’s the first stick bronzer I use and it’s so easy to use and blend in. I need to try it again to see if the colour works for me but the design is great and the cap closes with a very satisfying magnetic click. Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow (£24) in Camera Ready is just like their other liquid shadows which I’ve used before. Great staying power and pigment. Not much more to say other than – close them well so they don’t dry out!
Roén 11:11 (£37) is the palette I’ve wanted since I saw it announced on the brand’s Instagram. Not only for the colours (pink, glowy tones) but also the name! I know loads of people love this little palette, small but mighty. The shadows are like nothing I’ve tried before. I can’t even call them shadows per se, they feel like butter. Which is both a good and a bad thing. They are the perfect quick and ‘messy’ look but brushes don’t work particularly well because of that. And I found liquid liner didn’t stay on too well. Also I imagine if you have oily lids, this won’t work very well! The colours are beautiful, pink-toned and so shiny! Stila Road Less Traveled Palette (£32) I used the blue and green shades and the pigment was great, no fall-out and I like the colour story, as it’s quite different from my other palettes.
Eyeko Eyelash Curlers* (£12) these are new-ish, they have a good grip and curl well. Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara* (£19) is lengthening and separating, would work well during the day and night. It’s the first mascara I use that contains nourishing ingredients that promote hair growth, like shea butter, caffeine, biotin. Eyeko Eye Do Eyeliner* (£16) a good felt tip liner, works better for a thicker line I’d say. From this trial, I couldn’t get a super sharp line, so I’d combine it with another liner. Eyeko Brow Gel* (£18) with keratin, gingko biloba and a very light tint. This feels quite watery, it’s almost a brow serum. It did set them in place but I’d like it to be a bit drier. It’s a good size and I like the brush!
Lola’s Lashes Sapphire Magnetic Lashes* (£35), these are SO unique and I still can’t believe they work as well as they did! You get your lashes as you would in your box and the special liner. The liner acts as a magnet, you line your eyes, wait 2-3 minutes and apply the lashes that should stick on easily, as they have little magnets on the side. I tried them on the video and I had to move them around a little bit but I think next time would be easier. You have to clean them after every use and just reuse them! So genius. This style is fluttery and not too much, perfect for me as I don’t really wear falsies.
Kjaer Weis Lipstick* (£44) is refillable! The recently launched line of lipsticks, in a velvety somewhat glossy finish. It’s part of 8 nude lipsticks aiming to to compliment different skin tones. The packaging is luxurious as are all their products and the formula feels moisturising. I lined my lips with Emolyne Cosmetics Metamorphosis lip definer* (£13) in Cairo, but actually took it off as it was more orange-y than the lipstick. The brand has recently launched with three products (lip liner, lipstick and nail polish) in nude and red for all skin tones, in 15 shades each. Finally, Stila Boss Lip Gloss* (£14) in Strategy is so good! I used to love Stila glosses when I was younger and happy to see this isn’t sticky at all. Would look great on its own as well.
Finally, check out my IGTV to see me actually trying all these products out! Any questions I’m always on DMs or comment below!
