I chose two boxes of false eyelashes for review. The first box comes with five pairs of subtle and natural looking lashes that have flared outer corners with invisible lash bands. These synthetic lashes are very lightweight and are perfect for everyday wear! They can also easily be layered to give more volume and drama if desired.
I wasn’t able to find this specific box of eyelashes on the website, but I did find an eyelash box that is almost identical! If you’re interested in this eyelash style, check out this box of eyelashes here!
The second eyelash box contains ten pairs of bottom eyelashes in the color brown. Bottom eyelashes are extremely popular in Japan and can be seen on numerous models and “gyarus” (fashionable girls/women). These eyelashes can be a bit tricky to apply, especially if you’re not used to wearing bottom eyelashes. I’ve only worn bottom eyelashes twice and that was a long time ago, so I did struggle to apply these lashes. The trick to bottom eyelashes is to apply extra glue on the outer corners of the lash band to ensure that they stay put and don’t become loose during wear.
I’ve been testing out these Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics products that I got from online retailer Kiss & Makeup for the past week and I’m loving them, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on these goodies with you all!
Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics is a mineral makeup line that produces natural and cruelty-free products. Their products contain no talc, alcohol, parabens, fillers or dyes, and are also hypoallergenic.
Beginning with the BB Cream, which is a 3-in-1 product that works as a moisturizer, concealer, and foundation that also has anti-aging ingredients to help hydrate, veil, and protect skin.
This BB Cream comes in three shades and I got it in ‘Light’, which is the lightest shade of the three. It has a yellow undertone and matches my skin tone just perfectly! I really like the lightweight, silky texture of this multi-purpose BB Cream and love that it applies smoothly and blends readily. It has light coverage and only covers some of my flaws. When I wore this BB Cream, I didn’t realize how dry my skin was and this product accentuated every dry spot on my face. I would highly recommend prior moisturization when wearing this BB Cream since it prominently highlights the dry areas on the face.
Continuing with another face product that I got and fell in love with is Bella Terra’s mineral foundation in ‘Ivory’. The lovely representative at Kiss & Makeup was not lying when she said that I would love this lightweight foundation—-she was so right!
This mineral foundation comes in a nice range of colors; the shade ‘Ivory’ was a great match for me, which I’m really happy about since choosing a foundation over the computer screen is never an easy task. First, I will address the one small issue that I have with this foundation, which is the fine shimmers that it contains. I really wish this foundation didn’t have shimmers and had a matte finish instead—-the shimmers give the skin a dewy finish, which is great for those who prefer a more glow-y look. I find that by applying a mattifying powder over this foundation helps tone down the shine from the shimmers, so it’s not a deal breaker for me.
The consistency of this mineral foundation is silky smooth and extremely weightless—-it felt like I had nothing on my face! It has light to medium coverage and is very blend-able and build-able (I apply two layers of the foundation to give me a medium finish). I love the natural looking finish of this foundation and was amazed at how well it covered all of my flaws, especially my dark circles! Another thing that I really love about this product is that whether I used the foundation with a face primer underneath or not, it lasted the entire day (more than nine hours of wear) without caking or causing any oiliness! This is definitely a must-try product!
Moving on to the eye products, which are mainly eyeshadows. I got the Limited Edition ‘Cashmere’ Eyeshadow Palette, which is an all-shimmer palette that has a lovely mixture of golds and browns that’s perfect for daily wear or for creating smokey eye looks.
The six shimmery colors contained in this palette all have great pigmentation with excellent color pay-off. The eyeshadows are also removable and can be rearranged to your liking, or they can be switched out with Bella Terra’s other six-color eyeshadow palette to create a customized palette.
I also got two of the Shimmer 9-Stacks in ‘Turquoise’ and ‘Emerald’. These eyeshadow stacks are so fun and convenient. Each stack holds nine shimmer eyeshadows with various glimmers such as silver, gold, or iridescent. The colors in both stacks have finely milled shimmers with an extremely silky consistency that applies and blends effortlessly.
I was on the hunt for light up lip glosses and had to give these Bella Terra ones a try! The packaging is pure genius—-each lip gloss is fully equipped with a mirror on the side of tube and an LED light doe-foot applicator.
The two light up lip glosses that I got are in the shades ‘Come Hither’ and ‘Bloodshot’. Both glosses are highly pigmented, creamy, and have an ultra mousturizing texture.
‘Come Hither’ is a bright pink with fine silver shimmers.
‘Bloodshot’ is a vibrant matte red with a high-gloss shine.
Here is a makeup look I created using the Shimmer 9-Stacks in ‘Turquoise’ and ‘Emerald’. I used only two colors for this entire makeup look—-shade #6 from the ‘Turquoise’ shimmer stack and shade #1 from the ‘Emerald’ stack.
