Putting SheIn Makeup To The Test💕

I have wanted to try the online site, SheIn, for the longest time ever. I don't know what was putting me off because their clothing items are so cute and extremely affordable too. Then, after my friend told me it was worth ordering from, I thought "awk, why not!" and took to their app. After opening, I realised they had their own makeup line, SheGlam, and that was me, hooked. I decided to order a few makeup pieces, along with some random fashion accessories. And I can confirm, the makeup has taken me by surprise!!

Eye Candy Medium Coverage Concealer || 201 Finland || £2.49 || Originally I was going for their long wearing liquid concealer but I'm not sure what changed my mind! However, I cannot get over this concealer. I had read the reviews, and they were all super positive, so I was excited to try it out! For a start, the tube is actually a lot bigger than expected, so it'll last me quite a while. I just went for the palest colour as I am quite pale so knew it'd match me well. When I wear concealer, I typically apply it beneath my eyes, down the bridge of my nose and any imperfections I wish to cover, ie spots. I couldn't quite believe how thick the consistency is - I find that liquid concealers are quite thin, but this one is heavy duty. It blends really easily, and it's pretty medium - high coverage! It doesn't look dry or cakey whilst on the skin. I can't believe how good it is for the price it is!

Little Black Tube Lasting Setting Powder || 01 Natural || £3.49 || I've never really experimented with loose setting powders, but I'm running really quite low on my usual pressed powder so decided to switch things up. I just chose the shade natural, again for the same reason as the concealer and also so it's not overly natural. It does come with a puff sponge, but I'm not a fan of these. Instead, I tip some into the lid and use a large powder brush to apply as I find this to be the easiest method. I love the look it leaves; my skin appears matte, but without looking cakey. Instead, it looks super natural and fresh. I only apply a thin dusting and it sets my base pretty well. Impressive! I'd tried a setting powder in the past that was white in colour, and I found it was often noticeable on the skin, so I like that this is natural and matches me better!

3 Pairs Thick False Eyelashes || £2.99 || Now that I'm no longer a false lash novice, I'm quite partial to playing around with different brands. That's why when I spied these beauties at £3, I had to grab them - that's literally £1 a pair! They had a total of 15 styles available, so it took me quite a while to settle on a pair. In the end, I went for these; fairly natural yet long and effective. Some of them were more dramatic and bold, whereas others were more subtle and natural. I wasn't sure if they'd be quite plastic based, because they were so cheap, but I couldn't be any further wrong. The lash band is fairly thick, a black plastic band, however the lashes couldn't be any more natural if they tried. I had to trim them to fit, but applying them was fairly easy. They look super natural on, feel really lightweight and overall, I love how they look! They really help spice up a plain makeup look.

Dual-Ended Fine Eyebrow Pencil || 03 Dark Brown || £2.49 || I've tried pomade, brow gels, powders and all, but I've truly fallen back in love with brow pencils. I used to over estimate how good a brow pencil can be, and now it's all I will use! I love the natural effect they leave my brows, but also help give definition. This little brow pencil is a gem. It takes only a few minutes to do my brows but the results are magnificent. It helps to enhance my brows natural shape, bringing some added definition and structure to them. It's a dual ended pencil, so one end is the pencil, and the other end has a spoolie, which I find handy to use whilst doing my brows. I like that it's quite a creamy consistency, making the process easy - some pencils are a bit "dry" and hard to work with. I like that the tip of the pencil is slanted, which again makes it easier to fill in. The shade I have is the darkest to match my hair, and it's pretty much the most ideal match you could get, so overall, very impressed!

3pcs Star Velvet Lip Glaze Set || 02 Elegant || £5.99 || I had been searching for some new liquid lipsticks for the longest time ever, most specifically, a brown toned one. When I seen this gorgeous little box, I might've squealed a little. It comes packaged in a fairly sturdy cardboard box, and 3 lipsticks inside - a red, a pink and a nude/brown. I won't lie, the website did make them look slightly larger than they are, but for £6, I wasn't complaining. The pigmentation is super, I can't get over how opaque the colour is when applied to the lips! They feel quite thin in terms of formula, but it doesn't look thin and transparent on the lips. My favourite part is the fact they dry matte, but don't feel dry on the lips at all - in fact, it doesn't even feel like you're wearing anything. I am obsessed!!

In the above three selfies, I'm wearing the Shein lipsticks. Thought I'd include these instead of swatches so you can see how lovely they look on, and how pigmented they are! (Oh, and just realised I've used the brow pencil in all 3 too!).

The Artistry Eyeshadow Palette || 01 Bejewelled || £7.49 || This palette has my name written all over it. Seriously. Golds, browns and reds/oranges, what more could you want? It has a combined total of 18 shades, with a mix of mattes and glitters, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it - think of the possibilities of different eye looks you could create!! But, pigment? Damn, I can't believe how pigmented it is! It's more pigmented than some palettes I've paid more for, which I couldn't get over at first. The glitters have little to none for fallout, which I am still seriously impressed with. Course, it needs built up a little bit, but I can live with that! I find that the shadows blend quite well, they are more on the buttery side as opposed to chalk. I can't wait to keep experimenting with this little palette even more.

Shein, you have taken me by surprise!! After placing my order (which took roughly a week and a half to arrive), I ended up discovering more makeup (such as highlighters, foundations, contour kits etc) which I'm desperate to try next. Watch this space, I'll end up with the whole range!

  2. I'm really intrigued! I had no idea they had their own makeup line. I have been wanting to get something from them for a while just to try because their clothes are so nice.

    1. No, me either until I went to look at their clothes! Pleasantly surprised x
