Since their launch last year, local beauty brand, Sorbet, has been killing it with their range which has just extended to include a collection of liquid matte lipsticks, three new mascaras, new eyeshadow shades and super affordable false eyelashes (only R60 per pair)!
To celebrate, they sent me their Wink Wink Kiss Kiss press box filled with six of the Mattefy Me lippies (R150 each), a pair of the new false eyelashes in the style Flutter Away, all of the new mascaras (for curling, volume and waterproof – R160 each) and their Me, Myself & Eye Eyeshadow quartet (R180), most of which I used to create the look above!
I really love the matte lipstick, which says a lot because I tend to be more of a gloss girl. However, this formula is SO nice because it doesn’t feel dry or crackly on the lips. It’s incredibly comfortable, slightly sticky (which I like), and really long-lasting. In these pictures, I’m using the colour Adore, which is like a deep red with a desaturated undertone (scroll to the end for different colour swatches).
My first impression of the eyelashes was that they would be a little too light and not noticeable, but one coat of the You Go Curl volume and curl mascara was literally all it took to take my natural lashes and these falsies to the next level. They are ultra lightweight with a thin, but durable band; you’d really like them if you’re not used to wearing strip lashes or if you want a natural look. I often look at the work of celebrity make up artists like Patrick Ta and Hung Vanngo and notice how their clients have soft, whispy lashes, that don’t quite look like falsies, but don’t look real either. I’ve grown to like that a lot and I feel like this light look really has that same effect!
I also created this eyeshadow look and filled my brows with the Nudey shadow quartet, and it was beautifully pigmented and so easy to blend.
Not included in the press drop, but used here and in so many of my other make-up looks are the Glow & Tell highlighter drops (I’m already on my second tube, and it’s SO affordable!) and the What A Cheek blush stamp which is my go-to. For more of my Sorbet favourites, check out this blog post here!
