A couple of weeks ago they had a deal over at KGB deals for a Bellapierre make up set – these usually retail for £39.99 but they were on offer for just £16.99! Deal, right?
These ‘Get The Look’ kits come in a few different colour variations, like a tropical set, a blues, a browns and so on.
I ended up with ‘Wild Forest which is a green set:
All the sets looked pretty appealing to be honest – although I wasn’t that pleased with the way the deal was organised. After paying, you were supposed to send an email to Bellapierre requesting your set and providing your details.
There was zero acknowledgement from them, until 2 weeks later when an email told me (despite being very quick off the mark to send over my request for the purple set) that it was sold out and I’d have to pick again…
Then finally, about another 8 days after that I got the kit.
So aside from this I was pleased to get the kit! It looks cheap but inside is a really comprehensive kit. You also get application tips in the lid:
You get 2 brushes (eyeshadow and liner – the liner brush is pants).
You also get 3 full size shimmer powders (2.35g) in Discoteque, Forest and Reluctance. You get a full size eye primer which I have used before and is excellent.
The brushes are made of natural hair and the products are free from parabens and preservatives:
The full price of £39.99 is pretty steep – since when did mineral make up, make up which could be made at home if you really wanted to – get so damn expensive? I have honestly yet to find a little pot of pigment (3g or less) that is worth more than £5 to me. Even the Make Up For Ever glitters are over priced.
I guess if you factor in the 2 brushes and primer then it’s not bad value but I don’t know…for me to pay the full price I would have to have wanted the 3 particular shades first and also need the brushes which as I said before, aren’t that great. The liner brush was somewhat frayed.
