Today I’m going to be telling you all about the products that I’m loving from the brand.
Affect High Performance Lifting foundation.(€12.90)
Now that we are coming back into the winter months. I absolutely love my Full coverage foundation. when it does come to choosing the right foundation for you , you want to make sure it’s the right shade to suit your skin type , the right texture for your skin etc. This medium to full coverage build- able foundation , which also contains spf 10 , enough to prevent skin damage and still wont give you a flashback.
This foundation gives you a lovely dewy finish , leaving the skin looking hydrated all day long. I have been trying this foundation now over the last 3 weeks and absolutely love it. It sits really well on my skin and doesn’t settle into any of my lines etc and for €12.90 its a decent price.
Affect Fixing Powder C-0001. (€21.90)
If you follow me on the blog for a while now , you’ll know I’m very critical when it come to face powders or setting powders. This powder is waterproof , lightweight and photo friendly , meaning is wont give you that white false back in any photos. I use this to set my t-zone area as I’m oily in this area. You could use this all over the face to give a matte appearance to set under the yes. I absolutely love this powder. You also get a 10g pot for the price.
Affect Exciting Lashes , Volume Mascara. (€11.90)
When it comes to mascaras again I am very critical and have only ever reviewed one or two mascara on the blog over the last two years. This Silicon brush mascara has recently became one of my favourites and it really does all stem from the brush. The shape of the brush allow you to get right into the lash line , creating long , voluminous lashes. The shape of the brushes allows you to get right into the corner lashes , The ones you can never see.
Affect Pressed Eyeshadow Palette , Party All Night. (€29.90)
So Vibrant colours and definitely not my go to colours, for everyday makeup , but as a makeup artist and makeup lover this palette is literally amazing Perfect for any makeup artist or for your own personal use. Packed with 10 highly , highly pigmented eyeshadows , with all different finishes.
A mixture of matte , shimmer and creamy foiled eyeshadows, this palatte is the perfect party or festival platte. They blend really well on the eye and the colour payoff is insane. Keep an eye on my snapchat – shapesndshadows where ill be using this platte to do a purple smokey eye this week.
Affect Twist-Up lipstick Papaya. (€10.90)
I wore this Matte twist up lipstick last week on my snapchat and I literally had about 40 messages asking what it was. This matte lipstick is a combination of lipstick and lipliner. It glides onto the lips and is not any ay drying on the lips at all. I absolutely love these matte lipsticks .
Heres a look I created last week some of my my Affect Cosmetics products.
I hope you enjoyed this months Cruelty Free brand of the month .
Until next time .
