The past week I’ve been testing the Nee Greenery Garden collection which comes with a bronzer/brush duo, 3 cream eyeshadows and 5 fluid lipsticks. I ended up loving the fluid lipsticks so much so I had to make a post about it! Nee never ceases to amaze me when it comes to new make-up that’s actually good for your skin. In the pictures I’m wearing the Twin Blush, the Cream Stay Eyeshadow in CE1 Espresso & all the Shine & Fluid lipsticks.
The perfect blush for natural looks
First of all, the bronzer side in the Twin Blush is perfect for contouring smaller parts like under the eyebrows, the nose,… as it’s a pretty light and not too shimmery color. Great for subtle bronzing. When you’re on the go – especially in the summer months – and you want a lighter, natural make-up you can just mix the two on a large fluffy brush to add some color to your face. We don’t always need layers and layers of make-up!
Sultry long-stay eyeshadow
The Cream Stay eyeshadow really surprised me as I usually prefer my eyeshadow as pressed powder (less mess!). Applying these was very easy. I just dabbed a middle eyeshadow brush into the pot, applied some on the middle of my eyelid and smudged it out as I would do with powder eyeshadow. As I said before – so easy. It smudges out nicely and the color is very intense. I went to gym with this on and at the end of the day it was still perfect! That’s quite new for cream eyeshadow, it usually gets in the creases of your eyelid and smudges or droops when you start to sweat. The colors are sultry metallics that are totally up my lane. I think I will wear CE2 Cocoa Sun & CE3 Obsession a lot for nighttime looks, maybe even as an eyeliner. In the pictures I’m wearing CE1 Espresso. They just look so rich and smudge out so pretty! Even if your make-up skills are basic level you’ll manage these easily.
P.S.: They’re also enriched with vitamin A and E that help decrease the depth of wrinkles.
The lipsticks every girl needs to know about
I kept the best item for last! When these lipsticks came in I thought it were matte lipsticks at first. I’m kind of over the whole matte thing already (The Nyx matte lip creams, the Kylie lip kits,…) so I was thrilled when I discovered these were stay-on glosses! Glosses are my biggest problem in summer. For winter make-up looks I like a velvety, matte-ish lipstick but during warmer months I prefer glosses. The problem with glosses is that they never last and you always have to re-apply. Andddd my hair always gets into the gloss which results in me buying lots of glosses but never wearing them. These Shine & Fluid lipsticks are like a ‘dry gloss’ lipstick. They remain pretty and glistening for at least 4-5 hours and it feels so light that you forget you have something on. So smooth! The lipstick is enriched with mango butter for a nourishing effect so it also tastes delicious. What can I say? 100% date night proof.
