It feels like just the other day that I was uploading the March edition of Sassy Wishes. And here, we are on the cusp of April!
Sassy Wishes, as those of you may or may not know, is a monthly series here on the blog. It is an ode to the new beauty products on the block or oldies that I haven’t quite gotten my hands on but would love to own. This month’s one is a real quickie.
Nyx Eyebrow Gel
Most people who know me also know that I am big on eyebrows. It’s a bit of an obsession of mine. Some people make eye contact, I make eyebrow contact. My own eyebrows, however, are quite sparse. *continues to do face swaps with Cara Delevingne on Snapchat just for those brows*
Until recently, I’ve only used cool-toned powders and eye-shadows to fill in my eyebrows with an angled brush. But I would love to see how the gel would compare. I would probably steer towards Brunette or Espresso… more likely Espresso. For brows more awake than two shots of espresso on a Monday morning.
2. Wet n Wild Contouring Palette
Contouring palettes have stopped being something simply restricted to the high end spectrum of make-up. The Wet n Wild Contouring Palette, for instance, has been on the market for quite a while. Like Nyx, in South Africa, it is exclusively for sale at Clicks. It is available in two versions:
Dulce De Leche
I’m not sure how warm or cool-toned this is. Photographed swatches can be misleading as they’re subject to light differences and camera quality etc. I don’t wanna intend to contour and then casually walk around with orange encased cheekbones, if you know what I mean. But other than the general scepticism, this product looks promising. Plus, with all that product quantity, it will be long before you hit pan.
