Motives Cosmetics: The Style Status x 53 marcel‏


   ( Before shadow application, see image below)

Hi everyone!

I'm so happy to feature my first collaboration on the blog today, with my fellow blogger babes Stephanie and Tatianna of 53 Marcel . Be sure to follow these lovely ladies on IG and blog, their talented and amazing!

They have given me the honour of reviewing some Motives Cosmetic items! 
I'm personally not a professional beauty blogger ( I don't have magical makeup skills) but I do enjoy buying high quality makeup products. When you buy high quality makeup you get longevity and amazing product performance; and that is what Motives is!

Here are the details on each product that I used to create a simple everyday look;

1. Motives Eye Base : I've used many eye shadow bases from low to high end and this base is an amazing product. I wore it for two separate days for a period of hours (4-6) and it definitely help my eye shadow late long and with hardly any creasing. Also it increased the pigments in the Motives eye shadow palette colours, even though I lighting applied the shadow.

2. Motives Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette in "Island Breeze : I regret not being able to try out the brighter colours (but hope to soon). I chose to use the first three colours for my everyday look, and actually used the white shadow for the highlight for my face and eyes. The colours are easily build-able and have a slight shimmer to them which is nice option to have, when creating natural and more flashy looks.

3. Motives Luxe Precision Eyeliner in "Jet Black : I was just about to purchase a popular high end eyeliner when this came to the rescue! As a girl who rotates between black and brown liqiud eyeliner, I instantly fell in love with the design because of the felt tip and the ability to create different eyeliner styles. Versus other eyeliner brands, this pen is clean and not messy to deal with and it dries fast (thank goodness!!)

4. Motives Ultra Matte Lipstick in "Seduced" : The nude trend is still going on strong into this year, and I'm always looking for new shades of nude to try out! (cause I totally change my lipstick everyday, its the truth!) 
Being from the Caribbean I find it very hard to walk into a drugstore or local Sephora and find the perfect self described "nude makeup" or "neutrals" that compliment coloured skintones. The struggle is real, am I right ladies? Motives has really hit the nail on the head when this lipcolour was created! The pictures of my lip are unedited and exactly match my lip colour! Great wear, colour, and it is matte which is the best combination.

My final thoughts on Motives is...absolutely amazing!
I have already added it to my makeup arsenal and I'm truly happy to be introduced to the line. If your looking for a brand that caters to all skin tones, creates high quality product and affordable be sure to check out Motives.

Thank you to the ladies again at 53 Marcel, and you guys for reading!

Have a great day and week!
