I love makeup, I have a lot of it.
I'm not a makeup artist of any sort, I just enjoy it.
I love money and I have very little of it (well at least not enough to fund my makeup and shoe addiction haha), I hate to see it go to waste. So here I will showcase makeup and my opinion on it so other people won't have to waste money on silly products.
I'm Chanel, welcome.
I’m so excited by this!!! Themakeupartistboutique.com is doing 25% off of Yaby products (some going as little as 0.68p the most expensive is £1.60) !! Shipping kinda pricey but well worth it. Yaby products are great they really are, and this price is more than amazing. I got 26 items for £33.98 !!! Including foundations, concealers, eyeshadows and blushers. For £33.98 (£40.88 including shipping so kinda pricey, but well worth it in my opinion)!!!! And they ship all all over the world!! I cannot believe how cheap this is, I was going to buy the same things from love-makeup.co.uk and they are selling for £2.25 even though 0.65p doesn’t sound like a huge saving when you’re buy 26 it’s saving you £16.90. These are perfect for personal use or for your kit!!
Those who are not make-up artists or who haven’t worked closely with a make-up artist may not have any idea about Yaby. It is a very well kept new industry secret.
Yaby was created by a professional make-up artist, Liz Yu, when she was trying to condense her kit into a small, yet extremely effective and efficient workable kit. Many professional cosmetics come in full size bottles and containers, meaning that make-up artists have to lug heavy products or decanter the products into smaller pots. It also manes that make-up artists often have products go “off” as they haven’t used them all. Therefore they waste time depotting and also waste unused product and money on a colour they very rarely use.
Yaby is fantastic as it is very cost effective, especially for such a highly pigmented professional product. All products come in small pans, tubes or palette, meaning you are less likely to have any waste. Liquid foundations come in small tubes, which aren’t completely full, allowing the user to create a custom blend directly in the tube. the fact the pans and tubes are smaller means you use far less space in your kit. All Yaby products are packed full of pigment and you only need the smallest amount to make an impact.
I LOVE the cream foundations and concealers. They come in small pans that can be placed into a freestyle palette (either one of Yabys or the Z Palette) and you only need the smallest amount to cover blemishes and even out skin tone. I also adore the eyeshadows. They are rich in colour, soft, easy to blend and look amazing on camera and in real life. If you use them with a damp brush the colour pops and looks phenomenal!
Only down side is there aren’t many products left so do hurry.

Anonymous asked: yes, you get loads of things from superdrug, but aren't you worried about all the negatives from cheap make up (and high-end brands have these chemicals in them too, don't get me wrong) but all those parabens, BHTs, PEG-s, SLSs, silicones... not good for your skin - they are toxic.
As you said A LOT of brands both high-end and drugstore use parabens (the majority of cosmetics contain less than 3% parabens) so it’s not something you can easily get away from.
They are used they stop fungus, bacteria and the likes from growing in your makeup, If you want MY honest OPINION I do believe its a bunch of waffle (when it comes to parabens in cosmetics) I think a lot of it was a chance to charge more for cosmetics. The whole paraben hype was started by one singular study that found parabens in a breast tumors, and that information was used by cosmetics companies to market paraben free cosmetics , which will expire at a quicker rate thus leading you to buy another one sooner. I don’t know about you but I for one cannot afford to keep repurchasing makeup every time it expires!
In regards to PEGs: ‘Taking into consideration all available information from related compounds, as well as the mode and mechanism of action, no safety concern with regard to these endpoints could be identified’ (Fruijtier-Pölloth, C. (2005). Safety assessment on polyethylene glycols (PEGs) and their derivatives as used in cosmetic products. Toxicology, 214(1), 1-38.)
SLS are harmful in large doses, but I’m not sticking a hole bunch of it on my face. The amounts that are in cosmetics are very very low. And the cir-safety has said ‘Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate appear to be safe in formulations designed for discontinuous, brief use followed by thorough rinsing from the surface of the skin. In products intended for prolonged contact with skin, concentrations should not exceed 1 percent’
Silicone molecules are actually too large to penetrate the skin. They just sit on top of it like an extra layer. This layer helps to seal the skins moisturise in preventing it from escaping.
So am I worried about the ‘negatives’ that come along with almost all cosmetics, no I am not. And as for your statement ‘they are toxic’ I suggest you do more research before making such allegations.@2 months ago with 1 note
