Today a bunch of news from Viva la Diva and Babor arrived in the mail, so I thought why not try them out? Here are my first impressions! Pictures of all of them (except for the concealer for some reason??) at the bottom of the post.
Viva la Diva Make It All Better Concealer in Fair. A twist up concealer that actually brightened my undereyes really nicely and locked in place quickly. I’m actually surprised by how much I like it, this one will be exciting to experiment further with.
Viva la Diva Contour Your Beauty Kit. A kit with two contour shades, two matte + one shimmery highlights and a blush. I used the blush Pink Grape and the contour in Chocolate (on both facial contours, socket of the eye and lower lashline) today. Blends easily and looks great on the skin! Especially that blush shade is yummy.
Viva la Diva Duo Highlighter in Pink Silver. A very sparkly highlighter in pale champagne and peach. I swirled them together for an overall glow, then dabbed only the pale shade on the inner corner of the eyes and on the absolute top of the cheekbones/bridge of the nose. Left me a with a bit of glitter fallout though.
Viva la Diva Eyebrow Fine Liner in Mitad. A sharpie for your brows! Fantastic brush and formula, it is not too thin so it will pack on some colour, the formula isn’t too translucent either but it still doesn’t apply like a sharpie line. It dries into place very quickly but a dab with a finger right after applying a line will diffuse it a lot. Plus it doesn’t stain the skin underneath so it’s easy to blend out. The shade Mitad is supposed to be warm though, mine is either marked with the wrong name or the actual ashy shade in the line has to be as grey as an old basement.
Babor Lip Gloss Stick in Papaya (05). A bright coral orange gloss stick, very thin and slippery on the lips which gives some application problems. I needed to pat it in and therefore dull the colour and shine down for it to stop sliding around so badly. The final result is really nice even though it isn’t as saturated and shiny as it is straight from the bullet.
