From Left: Daring Twist & Exotic Black by 1000 Hour 


1000 HOUR in Exotic Black (Day to Night) & in Daring Twist (Day to Night) 
RRP $15.99

For the price itself they are quite affordable as it's re-usable and so handy. The kit comes with an adhesive glue and 2 pairs of the lashes which makes it super handy if you're travelling on the go. I tried both lashes in two different styles being, Exotic Black and Daring Twist (Pictured above). For the Daring Twist style, these are more fuller looking and have a 'criss-cross' style to them which makes them appear slightly naturally looking. As for the Exotic Black style, they are more singular looking lashes which look less fuller but adds more volume to your eyes.
Overall, the lashes are quite simple to apply on and they're made from synthetic fibres. If you're looking for some simple lashes I'd definitely recommend their 'Daring Twist'.

Gilded Cage Unleashed Lipstick 
 RRP $40 each 

I've tried Gilded Cage's lip glosses previously and finally I checked out their gorgeous lipstick range which features a luxurious Unleashed Lipstick collection. I tried shade Burnt Coral in 108 - which is this lovely peachy and fresh looking shade that looks beautiful on the lips. There are eight shades available in their collection so I might even check out the rest of their shades after trying Burnt Coral. 

The lipstick itself is soft and feels so lightweight on the lips. It doesn't feel heavy which is good because that means you can comfortably wear this at any day, any time. The lipstick also looks to firm and provide more volume for the lips giving you the maximum coverage, colour payoff and best comfort ever. I tried this lipstick on throughout the whole day (with touch-up in between meals and drinks) and found that the colour of Burnt Coral looked simply stunning and very natural looking. If you're wanting a subtle colour to your lips, then be sure to check out shade 108 and even perhaps try out their other shades too. 

For the ingredients of the lipstick, it looks to contain a combination of synthetic waxes and an innovative jelly base work that helps give you that soft and silky texture upon application which feels really nice. There's also an additional ingredient of hydrogenated resin that works to enhance the wear performance whilst leaving your lips feeling hydrated and moisturised all day long. Another aspect of which I liked about the lipstick is that it seriously smooths the lips and reduces any signs of fine lines. 

Additionally, the lipstick is enriched with amino acid derivative for extra moisture, wild mango butter for restoration purposes, water lily flower extract and it's even rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C which helps to leave your lips feel hydrated for longer. As for the overall coverage, it definitely offers a medium to high coverage with a luminous shine. It's talc, fragrance, paraben and D5 free - which means that it is super safe and gentle to use on the lips even in the long term. The product is made in Italy which really makes it a luxurious product to have in your handbag.
