Well I was quite surprised. I discovered this brand not so long ago on instagram, and a couple weeks later DOBI asked me to do a video by trying out Absolute New York makeup. I received the products last week. This weekend I finally got to play with the products and I was very excited.
I started by trying out the STROBING & SHADING PALETTE. I honestly love the contouring and bronzing shades. I love that they are not extremely pigmented right away but are buildable. Because usually I tend to go a little heavy handed with bronzer and contour but with this palette it worked perfect.
For blush I used the CHIC CHEEK BLUSH DUO in Pinched/Flushed. I really like the fact that it has a little bit of shimmer. It makes you look fresh and glowy. First I put a little much on but it was absolutely no problem to sheer it out. That is very rare. Next time I would probably use a different colour combo but for this look it worked fine.
I already powdered my face beforehand and then applied the LIQUID ILLUMINATOR. I really loved the glow it gave my skin and it even worked on powdered skin!
For my Brows I used the SUPER SLIM BROW PENCIL. I liked how thin the applicator is so you can draw fine hair strokes. It is not the most pigmented brow pencil but I think this is not necessary bad because it is buildable.
Next eyes. Wow guys I was pleasantly surprised by this little palette. THE ICON MINI is right up my ally. It is small, compact and perfect for in your handbag, But other than that it also is extremely amazing in pigmentation and blendability. I have the AFLAME palette and love the warm tones. As you see in the video I was able to create a dramatic and beautiful look but I am certain that you can also do a very soft everyday look with it. Would absolutely recommend!
While doing my eyeshadow I carved out my edges with the HD FLAWLESS SETTING POWDER. Well I was careful with this one because when you see such a light/white powder with the keyword HD, you gotta be careful :D. I didn’t use it for setting my makeup and haven’t tried it yet. But to protect your undereyes from fall out and to carve out shadow it worked perfectly and didn’t leave a white cast.
Still on the eyes I used the STROKED PRO BRUSH LINER and OMG. Guys I am obsessed. I love this liner so much. It is matte and it feels like an actual pen. So I was able to be super precise and get that wing on fleek. My new fave everyday liner for sure! You may ask, why everyday. Well whnn I am getting ready for work I can’t be bottered to take 20mins on a liner. It needs to go quick and easy. This liner makes it possible. No bleeding, no smudging just amazing.
Last but not least, lippies. I tried the MODEST MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK IN WHISPER. And I have to be honest. I am not the biggest fan of liquid to mattes because I feel they are quite drying on my lips. Of course that’s what their here for. But beside that I really liked the colour and the pigmentation.
Well that is it. If you haven’t done so yet, check out the video and don’t forget to like and subscribe!
