Best of Astor Cosmetics

I have drawers full of Astor products. An affordable, drugstore brand with amazing quality; what more can one want. And if you are a regular reader of my blog, you might know, I LOVEE just so much from their collection. Today, I thought I'd do a round-up of five of my Astor obsessions.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream - Review & Swatch

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream

I have always been drawn to Bourjois' foundation products, and when I was in the need for a new CC cream I saw this online and just bought it. It has SPF 15 and is said to contain colour-correcting tones of apricot, green and white for anti-fatige, anti-redness and anti-dark spots. Bourjois also claims that the CC cream lasts  24-hours and gives a luminous finish.

Drugstore Eyeliner for the Perfect Cat Eye

Drugstore Eyeliner for the Perfect Cat Eye

There are very few occassions that I will be caught without my winged eyeliner. It has just become my signature makeup. Done well, with so little effort it looks you have really spent time with your makeup. It makes eyes appear bigger and more awake. It looks uber-chic and just glams up any look. Winged/cat eyeliner is a technique which unfortunately comes only with practice. I remember my uneven, lopsided wings that sometimes just made me lose hope. But one day, with the perfect eyeliner, I managed to get the hang of it.
Yes, it's very important to have the right eyeliner for making that crisp cat eye flick. The easiest way I find is by using felt-tip eyeliners, that are like markers, quite easy to maneuver. Then are the gel eye liners for which you need your own eyeliner brush. And lastly are the liquid eyeliners which require more practice but are more glossy and dramatic.
If you are beginner at this technique or just looking for a good eyeliner, here are my favourite drugstore options.

My MAC Lipstick Collection (with swatches)

My MAC Lipstick Collection

Many people's favourite collection right? Honestly I am not much of a MAC hoarder. I love collecting lipsticks, but MAC is not my only favourite brand. So I was kinda surprised to discover that somehow I already own 8 MAC lipsticks and this is indeed the time for a collection post.

TheHotshop Velvet Matte Lipstick in #2 - Review & Swatch

Thehotshop Velvet Matte Lipstick in #2

No, it's not the Topshop! Rather TheHotshop Velvet Matte Lipstick from Born Pretty Store. The adorable, whimsical, minty packaging is very similar to the Topshop's. And I assume these are their knockoffs.
