New Makeup for #SS17 | Technic Cosmetics Style*


I'm a little bit in love with Technic Cosmetics, I can't lie. Everything I've tried from their collection so far has been a] super cheap and b] super effective - which is always a win win in my eyes. Oh and they're also cruelty free and vegan friendly; which is just the icing on the cake for me.

Their lines are forever evolving, adapting and expanding; in keeping with current makeup & beauty trends. Which means that girlies living a lifestyle similar to mine [i.e. on a permanent budget or simply unwilling to part with your monthly food shopping budget just to get one item of high end makeup] can still afford to try the latest products taking the #bblogger world by storm / remain massively on-point. I mean, just look at these beautiful makeup brushes - they're every bit as striking as their high-end equivalents, but not a single one in the Technic range costs over a fiver. And that's maths I like.

I tried Technic for the first time last year [find out more about my initial experience here] and ever since then, I was converted. Bordering on obsessed. Their Colour Correcting Palette is something I use on the daily  and have repurchased time & time again - plus their range of super pigmented highlighters were a total game changer for me; both at the time and to this very day. And you caught my thoughts on these unreal makeup brushes, right? So you'll understand my excitement in being able to work with these guys again and try some more of their collection.

Technic very kindly sent me this Get Gorgeous Highlighter* RRP £3.49, this Colour Max Baked Eyeshadow Palette* RRP £3.99 and this beaut Colour Fix Pressed Powder Contouring Palette* RRP £5.00 to try out [as well as these amazing makeup brushes] - and to say I was excited was an understatement. Read on if you wanna see how these products rate, in my opinion.

Fun fact for you - I really wasn't a fan of highlighter at all, until I tried Technic's Get Gorgeous Highlighter last year. It was a genuine game changer for me - and proper changed my perception on how highlighter could work for me. As I already have somewhat shiny, oily skin in the old T-Zone, I always avoided using highlighter; in fear that my whole face would just look like an oil slick. Until I tried what Technic had to offer, and I was converted.

Whereas the Technic highlighter I tried last time was more of a white, pearly colour; the one I picked from their collection this time is more of a goldy-peachy-beige shade. Which is ideal for me, as it provides a very subtle, yet shimmery glow - nothing too drastic, or that will highlight the fact that 99% of the time, my face is a big shiny moonbeam. I really love this product for adding a subtle sheen to my cheek and browbones during the day. And for just £3.49, I could literally marry it. #GameChanger.

And just look how pigmented it is, btw! Can you cope? Cos I'm struggling to. I 100% recommend checking out Technic's range of highlighters if you're into channelling them unicorn vibes - they're insanely beautiful and pigmented like no other.

These powders are so fluffy and soft, you'd think they were creams. I love the diverse selection of shades included in this palette, and how gradually the colour builds up when you're using them. And eight beautifully silky pans for just £5 is once again, fantastic value from Technic.

Catering for contouring, highlighting, baking and colour correction, this Pressed Powder Contouring Palette is absolutely brilliant - perfect for beginners and experienced contour-ers alike. Full swatches etc will follow this post in a more detailed review I have on the cards; featuring the other tools / products I use daily to get my face looking socially acceptable.

I've tried Technic's amazing Baked Eyeshadow products before and loved them, so I thought it was about time I updated my collection to include some of SS17's hottest metallic shades. I'm all about those gold, bronze and burgundy shades - so I couldn't not have this palette; knowing how pigmented and high quality Technic's baked powder formulas are.

Just look at those swatches - the pigmentation of these shadows is legit unreal. They're totally wearable shades and long lasting too; unlike other budget brands whose products look the part but ultimately, break my heart when they wear off as soon as you step outside wearing them. 

Those two middle burgundy / maroon shades are just about everything right now - I might not be able to afford the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette but I sure as hell can buy beaut dupes and pretty palettes like this one, giving me all the romantic pinky inspo I could ever need and not forcing me into early bankruptcy. Oh Technic, you're slaying my life right about now.

Once again I've been blown away by Technic's fantastic quality products, their on point shades and their affordability - you'll be seeing plenty more of them on the blog; that's for sure! It makes me sad to think that there's bloggers out there who aren't aware of this amazing brand's existance, so make sure yous check them out. You defo won't regret it - there's something in the range for legit everyone! #PinkyProm
