I was recently contacted by a very lovely lady from Born Pretty Store who very kindly offered to send me some products being a big make up enthuasiast this was not an offer i could refuse. This was my first experience with Born Pretty Store and i can honestly say it provided an excellent service; the site sells extremely affordable cosmetics so if you are someone who is on a budget this website is definitely worth checking out because it was definitely not hurt your bank balance too much! The products arrived really quickly; i was told to wait between 2-4 weeks as the product were being shipped from overseas but mine came after about a week - so it was very efficient! I was lucky enough to be able to choose two products so i opted for the Bright Colored Natural Cream Moisture Gloss* and Musthave Highlighting Stick*

Musthave Highlighting Stick*
I'm a bit obsessed with creating a nice glow to the skin so i knew i had to try this highlighter out - i opted for shade #2 which is more of a pink based highlighter as i feel the pink tones compliment my skin tone much better. I really like that this highlighter is in the same format as a lipstick it makes application really easy and theres no chance of over doing it. The highlighter itself is a lovely shade, it's blends out quite easy and it's not heavily pigmented so you can build it up to a glow thats more to your preferance, i also like a subtle glow so i like that i can work this to how i want it. The only negative thing i have to say about this is that it does have small specks of glitter in it - i know highlighte is meant to be shimmery but if you over apply this the glitter can give you a bit of a disco ball effect.

Bright Colored Natural Cream Moisture Gloss*
The second product i chose was this lipstick; at the moment im really drawn to orange/coral shades so i opted for shade #8 which is a really beautiful light peachy orange. I'll be honest and say i didnt have very high expectations of this lipstick but im actually quite impressed; it has a really creamy formula, i didn't quite expect it to be so moisturising on the lips. It literally glides onto the lips so effortlessly and it has an unusual finish to it - i'd say it has a bit of a satin finish as it leans more towards being matte but it still has a bit of a sheen to it. I do reapply my lip products frequently throughout the day but this did last about 3/4 hours before i felt it needing touching up, that was without having food or drink so it may differ with those. I'm really impressed with the quality of this lipstick and i think the packaging of it is really cute too!

The lovely people of Born Pretty Store have also provided a 10% off coupon code for any of you lovely readers that are interested in making an order - using the coupon code JSH10 so definitely make sure you take advantage of that!
