Born Pretty Store Make Up

Born Pretty Store Make Up Beauty Eye Liner Lip Gloss Stick Liner

As a beauty lover, I am always looking for high-quality make up without paying extortionate prices.  When Born Pretty Store (here) contacted me to try out some of their products, how could I turn them down?!


I was given the opportunity to choose a few products to try out, so I headed straight to their website.  I did find the website a little bit hard to navigate and very busy, it takes a bit of time to get your head around.  I eventually chose to try an eyeliner/shadow, a lip liner and a long lasting lipgloss.

Born Pretty Store Make Up Beauty Eye Liner

Born Pretty Store Make Up Beauty Felt Tip Eye Liner

The first thing I opened was the eye shadow/liner (link here).  I had ordered a bronze shade and expected a twist-up crayon style shadow stick.  Unfortunately, I didn't get anything close - compare these photos to the inage on the website, they look nothing alike.  This product is basically a dark brown felt-pen-style, which in my opinion could never be used as an eye shadow.  I could accept it if the liner was any good, but it's a bit of a let down.  The colour is completely mis-advertised, it's a dark brown shade with no shimmer (swatch at end of post).  As soon as you apply it, it feathers so much.  I don't even know how well it wears because I couldn't leave it on my eyes for a full day - it looks that bad!

Luckily, after the eye liner the package improved.  This nude lip liner in shade 7 (here) is gorgeous.  It's a browny nude shade perfect for pairing with pretty much any neutral lipstick of gloss.  The formula is waxy enough to stick around but not uncomfortable to wear.  Admittedly the packaging isn't great but for such a low price, this is brilliant.

The last product was this long-lasting matte lip gloss (here).  Although the name is a little deceiving (matte lip gloss?), this is a matte liquid lipstick with a doe-foot applicator.  This is definitely my favourite product of the three.  The formula is pretty similar to the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets and it's really comfortable to wear.  It's a gorgeous deep red shade, which isn't patchy and doesn't feather.  It's a perfect product for Autumn/Winter, I know I'll get lots of wear out of it over the next few months.

Born Pretty Store Make Up Beauty Eye Liner Lip Gloss Stick Liner Swatches

Here are the eye liner, matte lip gloss, and lip liner swatches.  You can see how different the eye liner was to what I expected!  Both lip products really impressed me, and i can see me getting a lot of wear out of them.  If your looking for some bargains and you've got some time on your hands to navigate the Born Pretty website - head over and take advantage of their free delivery!

  3. Did you open both ends of the eye product? From the website it looks like one end is the shadow, the other end a liner

  8. Both of those lip products look really nice - esp loving on the matte lippie. I'm sorry you didn't get what you expected out of the liner though. It sounded like it could've been an awesome product had you been given the correct thing. Oh well, maybe another time!
