Makeup look & review: It’s a bright time to pout about it & lip jams

I’m officially not a makeup snob! Yay!! It’ been a long time coming but I’ve finally broke my rule of only buying certain brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown and other Department store brands and ventured into chain store makeup.

The only exception to drug store and chain store makeup I make is asian brands, but  I’m so glad I did this because I’m so impressed with the quality!

I have to say my friend Aeysha inspired me to try it because her lippie looked so good and when I asked she said Sportsgirl! I mean seriously sportsgirl?? I go there to buy clothes…and even then I haven’t bought anything from there in ages because the sizing is never in my favour.

For those of you guys not in Australia Sportsgirl is like a Top Shop and H&M type clothing chain store and I usually never buy makeup from a clothes store.

I went in to try the lippies and ended up with a lip balm/gloss as well. I chose the Bright Time lipstick ($9.95), also called pout about it, because the color payoff is awesome and the color is so pretty!

I also stumbled upon the pretty lip blam called lip jam ($6.95). It comes in 3 colours and I picked the pretty pale pink. It has a sheer colour and a slight gloss.

The color of the lippie!
I have very pigmented lips and this particular shade has a matte finish and actually covers all the pigmentation without having to use any lip concealor or foundation beforehand! That’s very rare for me because my lips are very red and pigmented and normally pink colours never show on me. 
This is the bright time lipstick with the lip jam creating a sheer gloss on top
love how pretty and pink the color is πŸ™‚

      I bought one eyeshadow from artistry πŸ™‚ It was pretty cool it was pink and I'm sure I've lost it! The pigment was great and the price was ok, but that's all I've tried. Are you curious about the quality of the line?
