Hi beauty lovers,

On my latest Instagram post, I shared the latest collage of the BASIC ESSENTIALS WEAR for an ordinary Saturday (Yay bring on more weekends please!). I am so excited to share this review with you guys, so here it goes! 

So.. what's in MY 'Basic Essentials List?' (From Left to Right) 

I chose this set of earth friendly brush set as it presented a soft feel to its bristles and this is first priority for me when selecting brushes that are gentle for my skin. I know they're cruelty-free brushes and as long as they are not being animal tested, then I am OK with that. It comes with a cute cosmetic bag which is totally convenient. 
The brushes do a great job in applying my make-up gently and it does not feel harsh at all. Even better - they're super affordable. 

The set contains: 
  • Blush brush
  • Eye shading brush
  • Eyeliner brush
  • Lash and Brow Groomer
  • Concealer Brush
  • Cosmetic bag

I chose this Blush Powder in this beautiful pink shade as it creates the look of pretty and cute. It uses a silky formula so when I apply this over my cheekbones it gives me more of a natural look. It blends so well and you don't need to apply a lot of product. 
odd thing about this blush is that it is very long lasting and can last me a good 6 hours of wear without smearing off. Such a lovely glow I get when I apply this onto my cheekbones. 
The consistency of the powder is not too heavy making this the ideal blush! 

I have stuck by this eyeliner for more than years and don't think I'll go back to any other brand. This soft creamy liner is so easy to use and move for under my eye waterline or so. It simply glides on giving an intense black liner look but without looking so dramatic. 
Also another good aspect of this eyeliner is that is stays on ALL DAY LONG. No need to reapply because the liner will be there! 

This liquid eyeliner is great for lining the lids of your eyes. Gives a really intense look and I really like how it doesn't smudge for long hours of wear. The packaging is rocking cool with the black and pink tones, really stands out on my cabinet. 

I absolutely love this eye brow wax set, comes with cute convenient brushes to help shape your brows on the go. (An eyebrow brush, along with the cutest tweezers!) You get value in this brow set and the colour really suited my brows naturally. 
I got the colour in medium brown and it really suited my brows well. Depending on how you apply the wax and brow shadow - will determine your overall look, so be sure not to use too much product otherwise your brows will just look to overwhelming.
It's good to line the bottom of the brow and create a sketch where you can fill in your brows lightly
 The set comes with a mirror so I can say the convenience of this product is top notch and I would recommend those who have not tried this, to definitely purchase this beauty! 
This is available at the Benefit Bars at Myers or Sephora or alternatively online through the Benefit AU store online (For Australians) 

One of a kind and super mini cute eyeshadow palette bu Urban Decay really impressed me with this. You can check out a more detailed review within my blog if you search for it Archives under Urban Decay Naked Basic. :) 
This made the list for not being 'basic' named but for the colour range in this cool matte palette. It features all matte colours with neutrals - with shades we haven't seen before. The packaging is also convenient as it comes with a handy mirror, perfect if you need to apply on the go! 
Of course I used the colour in "Venus" and "Walk of Shame" to create my basic look by applying on the crease of my eyelids with a blending brush from my Eco Tools brush set. 

Colours include: 
  • Venus (soft, off-white demi-matte), 
  • Foxy (very light yellow/white matte), 
  • Walk of Shame (very light nude matte), 
  • Naked2 (taupe matte), 
  • Faint (warm, dusty brown matte) and 
  • Crave (deepest, darkest brown/black matte). 
So there you go beauty lovers! A simple Basic set for the weekend! If you have any questions regarding the products as mentioned above, please comment down below or email me. Happy to always assist! 

Have a great day,
