Bossy Cosmetics – 3 Beauty Babes you need to try

I’ve talked about Bossy Cosmetics before, and yup I am at it again. Bossy Cosmetics for those of you who don’t know are a New Zealand based company providing beauty products that are quite simply amazing in every way. I discovered Bossy Cosmetics when they first started out, one of their first products was their Brush Cleanser and to this day it is still my Holy Grail that I tell  EVERYONE about!

The past few months have seen Bossy expand significantly, and with this has of course resulted in a heap of new products. Three in particular that I am going to talk about in this post, live up to the Bossy name in being essential items in your day to day routine.

First up is the Lux 2-in-1 Prime and Fix – A spray that can be used to prepare your skin pre makeup, and of course again sprayed at the end of application to set and seal your look for hours on end. The thing I love about this spray is that the scent isn’t too strong, and it’s great for all skin types. At only $18 RRP (currently on sale for $12.95) this is a fantastic dupe for my fave setting spray from Urban Decay.

Glowy Strobe Effect Highlighter – I was super excited when I saw Stephanie had developed a highlight powder, I am like a magpie when it comes to all things glowy especially heading towards the Summer. Getting used to the concept of the product being a loose powder, was a little hard as I did initially find this a little messy to apply.

This was only because I always use pressed highlights or liquids, BUT once you get the hang of it this product is super pretty.  I would suggest this to be best on a Light to Medium complexion as it is more on the white reflect side of colouring, so I think it would come off a little chalky on darker complexions.  At only $22 (currently on sale for $11.99) it’s too affordable not to try it out for yourself.

The image below is the product dry, but I find it has a beautiful finish when you use a fan brush that is sprayed with a little MAC Fix + spray, it really allows the glow to show it’s true beauty.

Lip Balm Butter Whip $14.95 (on sale for $6.99)- You can never go wrong with a good ole lip balm, I personally have many thrown throughout my beauty bags. This one from Bossy in particular,  I love to apply at night time. Infused with Cocoa Butter and Coconut Oil this is perfect for hydrating your pout and since night time is a time for relaxing the Peppermint, Vanilla and Cinnamon flavouring really is the icing on the cake.
