One of the most exciting beauty brands I’ve heard about of late is Beauty Bakerie. If you haven’t heard of this brand, Beauty Bakerie is a US based brand, launched in 2011 by Cashmere Nicole…
I wanted to create a brand that contradicted the popular ‘bad girl’ persona the mainstream was pedaling – to show girls that there’s nothing wrong with upholding a sweet and friendly nature. Life is sure to hand all of us its lemons but I strongly believe it is up to us to change our perspective. I overcame the struggles of teenage parenting, I overcame breast cancer and loss only to arrive to a place of peace. It is the sweetest peace I’ve known. Truly indescribable. This, Beauty Bakerie, is a piece of that peace that I wanted to share with you.
Beauty Bakerie products are available to buy in the UK at ASOS, and I have a whole bundle of them to share with you today –
Starting with the Neapolitan EyesCream Palette (£32.00) – This fab little palette contains twelve warm toned eyeshadows, with seven shimmer shades and five mattes. The shades are mostly neutral, easy to wear colours, but Beauty Bakerie have also included a couple of brights to give eyes a pop of colour. The formula is smooth and really well pigmented, and I love the shades Sliced Almonds and Powdered Sugar especially.
Unfortunately my swatches photo really did not do these shades justice, so if you’d like to see any more photos please just let me know and I’ll take some more pictures 🙂
Next I have the So Icy Illuminator (£27.00) – This cute little ice cream tub contains a super sparkly, glistening powder highlighter. I have to say, though I love the look of the packaging, I don’t think it’s that practical. There is a circle of holes where you dispense the product out, and I just think they’re too big – it got pretty messy when I was trying this out!
The highlighter itself comes in four shades (I have Frosted, which is a light champagne pink) and has a very light powder texture. If you’re a fan of particularly sparkly highlighters, this is definitely worth a try.
I’ve also been trying out a few of Beauty Bakerie’s Liquid Lipsticks. The Metallic Lip Whips (£16.00) have a metallic shimmer finish and are available in 10 colours. (Starting from the top swatch) I have shades Vitamin Sea which is an intense metallic blue, and Berried, a metallic deep wine red. Though these are metallic / shimmer lipsticks, you can see they dry down to a matte finish, which I love. The formula lasts for hours and is both smudge proof and water proof.
I also have four of the standard Lip Whips – the third swatch down is Yoghurt Berries, an intense, creamy fuchsia, next is Fortune Cookie, a warm peach toned beige, next is Swiss Mocha Frappe, a light greige nude, and lastly Bae Cake, a deep sea blue. All these shades have a creamy liquid formula, that dries to a really nice matte finish.
I’m also completely in love with the EyesCream Cream Eyeshadow (£14.50) – This dinky little cream eyeshadow pot gives the most amazingly pigmented finish. I have shade Lick The Spoon, which is a highly metallic cool toned silver. The formula is creamy and easy to apply, and the finish is pretty matte. I found applying this with a finger worked the best for me, but you can also use a brush – and you can also use this as eyeliner. There are nine shades available in all, and I think I definitely need to snap a few more up!
I also have a Gelato To Go Gel Eyeliner (£14.50) – This looks quite similar to the cream eyeshadow in the pot, but this has a much heavier texture. This long lasting gel eyeliner has a smudge proof and waterproof formula, and applies like a dream with a decent eyeliner brush. This will literally last all day too – I love it!
And lastly the Sprinkles Glitter (£9.50) – Even though I’m a massive fan of glitter, this is probably my least favourite out of the bunch. There’s nothing wrong with the glitter at all, I just feel that for £9.50 you’re getting a very small amount of product here – I can’t see anywhere on the packaging where it tells you exactly how much product you’re getting. It’s a small amount though, and for £9.50 you can almost buy 2x NYX Glitter Pots (£5.50 each) which looks to have at least three times as much product (at a guess).
I do however really like the Sprinkles Glue which you need to get the glitter to stick to your face and / or body. It’s a clear glue that comes in a handy little tube with a lip gloss style applicator. Unfortunately this is no longer available on the ASOS site, but you can pick up the NYX Glitter Primer as a fab alternative.
Beauty Bakerie products are available now at ASOS. I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
