2true Makeup Haul + First Impressions ♥

Hey beaut's!

2true are a purse friendly cosmetics brand that we usually see on one of those cool twirly stands in Superdrug, they are probably best known for some of their Benefit dupes which start from just £1.99 and hold a huge variety of face, lip, eyes and nail products that are all trend-led. To celebrate the launch of 2true's brand new website I have a few of their makeup products to share with you all as well as a cheeky discount code he he!

Eyes

Firstly we have some bits for the eyes... I was eager to try 2true's WOW! Mascara (£2.99), I'd heard it was a dupe for the Benefit They're Real Mascara and the fact it's constantly sold out in Superdrug made me think it was pretty amazing and after finally trying it I can assure you it really is amazing, it adds length, loads of volume, layers well, doesn't clump or flake and stays put all day, arrrhhh it's amazing! The Pro Tech Extreme Eyeliner* (£4.49) was next of my list of must tries from 2true as I do love a good winged eyeliner look, the fine shaped fibre tipped applicator really does all the work for you and creates such precise and sharp looking flicks, it's also super black and very long lasting! The WOW Colour For Eyes in Bold Bronze* (£2.99) has been my new favourite product to wear on the lower lash line, it's super creamy and blend out a dream and just adds that definition whilst looking super pretty, it can also be used all over the eyelid as a base for a bronze smokey eye. Can you believe the Easy Glide Kohl Pencil in White* (£1.99) is my very fist white eye pencil, it's extremely pigmented and very creamy and works well on the waterline to brighten up those eyes or again you can use it all over the eyelid as a base if you going to use bright coloured eye shadows. Lastly for the eyes I tried the Expert Eyebrow Pencil in shade No 1(£1.99) which is a grey toned brown perfect for my brows, it's quite a hard pencil which is ideal for using through the brows and really helps define, sculpt and enhance your brows shape, I also love the fact it has a cute little brow brush on the cap.

Lips
Next we have some products to achieve a gorgeous looking pout... Firstly I tried the 8hr Power Lip Colour in Natalie* (£4.99) which is a super intense bright barbie pink long lasting liquid lipstick, the pigmentation of this little beauty is incredible and it's staying power is out of this world. The Glossywear Lipstick in shade 2 (£1.99) has a silky smooth formula which moisturises and contains SPF to keep those lips protected, although that shade of the lipstick look quite bright in the bullet it actually comes out on the lips as a frosty baby pink that colours the lips slightly, great for everyday wear. Lastly for the lips I tried 2 of the WOW! Gloss for Lips pencils (£2.99 each) these I'm not so keen on, although the pigmentation is very good I find them too glossy and sticky for me, and if you have them in your handbag on a warm day they completely melt and make such a mess. 

Face
Out of everything it's the face products I haven't tried as much as the rest so I cant really give much information on these yet however I've used them all twice and so far so good. The BB Beautiful BB Cream* (£4.99) is great for this time of year, it gives the skin a fresh, natural looking glow, is extremely lightweight and has a subtle matte finish. The Pro Bright Touch Concealer* (£4.99) is much like YSL's very popular Touche Eclat, it's a llightweight, moisturising concealer which helps even out skin tone and brightens without looking cakey and adds an ever so slight radiance, loving it so far. And lastly there is the All Over Natural Bronzing Power* (£2.99) , I'm really on the fence about this because the powder itself is matte but then it has bright gold flecks of glitter running through it which look so un-natural on the skin, I really wish they didn't add the gold flecks because this bronzer has real potential.

Nails

I absolutely love these nail polishes, they are all super quick and easy to apply and dry rapidly which is a huge bonus. The shades I got in the Fast Dry Collection(£1.99 each) where shade 31 which is a baby pink and shade 22 which is a gorgeous pink with coral undertones. I also tried one of the Pro Sequins Nail Polishes in Christy(£3.99) , the textured polish is made up of tonnes of silver micro glitter and a large amount of small silver hexagon glitter… these combined make a really really pretty sparkly effect that I adore for accent nails!

If you'd like anything that I've featured in this post or on the new 2true website make sure you use the discount code X00418 to get 10% off, it's only on for a limited time so don't miss out beaut's!
