Eye of Horus

Brow Fibre Extend by Eye of Horus

It’s no big secret that The Amazing Blog is a huge fan of strong brows, so if you combine that with our favourite Australian make-up brand, Eye of Horus, get ready for an effusive post. We have, for a long time now, been in love with Eye of Horus. Not only are their cosmetics fabulous and long-lasting, but they are cruelty-free, vegan-approved, paraben free and rich in precious oils and waxes.  There is a reason that this brand continues to pick up award after award, most recently winning Best Mascara and Best Eyeliner at the 2017 Beauty Shortlist Awards, and it’s because of the quality of their ingredients. Their new Brow Fibre Extend collection continues to incorporate ancient ingredients to deliver the highest quality products possible to make you feel like a real goddess. The Brow Fibre Extend is the first of a few exciting products that Eye of Horus is releasing over the next few months, so watch this space!

The Brow Fibre Extend creates fuller, thicker and more volumised brows. With a buildable formula, the product lengthens and thickens eyebrows and fills any patches or imperfections effortlessly, creating a natural but defined look. This new, waterproof range is available in three shades; Dark (Nile), Medium (Dynasty) and Light (Husk).  Mineral pigments are used to give a subtle and natural colour to the products. The long-wearing formula contains two types of seaweed (Canaliculate Extract and Laminaria Digitata) as well as Moringa Oil, which assist in brow hair growth and health. The micro applicator allows for both a delicate feathered look and a bold, impactful look. 

The Brow Fibre Extend is a great day-to-day product that instantly adds definition and volume in one smooth stroke, making it perfect for the girl on the go. You can buy your very own Brow Fibre Extend for £19 from My Beauty World here, so go and become the goddess you were born to be.

Eyelash Feature - Friday Favourites

At the Amazing Blog, we all agree that the one makeup staple that gives us the biggest transformation is mascara. The products we can use on our lashes can make a huge difference in how our eyes and overall makeup looks. We decided to gather our favourite products that can make our eyes pop and stand out from the crowd.

FOLTENE Eyelash Treatment_16 BOX [2].png

First up is Foltène’s Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment. This little wonder is a treatment which is designed to strengthen and restructure fragile and damaged lashes. Regular use of makeup, external aggressors, and stress can all contribute to a weakening of eyelashes. Foltène created this treatment using their patented active ingredient Tricossacaride, which has growth stimulating and strengthening properties that help to provide hydration and elasticity to unhappy lashes.

There are no parabens, mineral oil, silicones or paraffin wax, which is a huge bonus for us. Additionally, the Eyelash & Eyebrow Treatment is ideal for sensitive eyes and for those wearing contact lenses, as it has been ophthalmologically tested.

The product is simple to use, you need to apply the treatment to the lashes in the morning and evening at the end of your routine. Take care to use it on the thinnest and smallest lashes that are hard to reach, as these are the ones that need the most assistance. Another brilliant aspect of this product is that you can also use it on your brows, resulting in healthier and fuller eyebrows. This treatment from Foltène will leave you with longer, stronger, and more beautiful eyelashes and eyebrows.

If your eyelashes have been damaged by products in the past then this is the ideal treatment to get those beautiful fluttery lashes back. Buy Foltène’s Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment here for £14.95.

Up next is Eye of Horus’ newest product, the Bio Lash Lifting Mascara. We were excited to try this new offering from the brand, as it boasts to be 100% vegan and 98% organic. We were initially skeptical about how effective such a natural product could be but the results are fantastic. The formula is made with botanicals such as marine algae and plant-derived collagen. The mascara also contains Omega 9, Vitamin E, and Castor Seed Oil, resulting in healthy and nourished lashes. The natural ingredients mean that this product is suitable for the most sensitive eyes and can be enjoyed by all.

This mascara from Eye of Horus has been designed to add length, volume, and nourishment to lashes – the ultimate trio for great looking lashes. The double-sided comb brush is easy to use and combs with ease through the lashes, providing lift and volume.

If you are looking for a new mascara made with organic and vegan ingredients, but won’t compromise on quality then try Eye of Horus’ Bio Mascara. You can buy it here for £19.00

False lashes taking too much time in your beauty routine? We at The Amazing Blog know the struggle, which is why we were so excited to try the Nuvega Lash Revitalisation Serum.

Eyelash revitalising serums have been around for a while, however most use controversial ingredients which are not vegan or environmentally friendly. Nuvega is a German company that uses vegan ingredients, combining the science behind lash growth with vegan and natural production, allowing the vegan market to try this new beauty revolution. 
 
The product claims to stimulate the eyelash hair follicles as well as nourishing the hair follicles at the same time. When we tried the serum we were impressed with how easy it is to apply. We used the thin wand within the package to sweep the serum over like an eyeliner. Only a thin amount is needed, and the product should be applied over all the hairs on both the top and bottom lashes. The product is easy enough to add into a daily beauty routine, and we found the price is reasonable due to its high quality and solid results. The box has clear instructions on how to use the product, making the whole process very easy and fool-proof.
 
Grow your lashes and banish the need for falsies - the Nuvega Lash Revitalising Serum can be purchased online here for £71.75.

No eyelash feature would be complete without adding some fake eyelashes. These are a sure-fire way to add some glamour and oomph to any look. We love the selection from Pinky Goat - they are a unique brand with a large range of false lashes for both makeup artists and anyone with a love for voluminous eyes. Don’t just take it from us – Pure Beauty voted them Best New Brand of the Year.

We tried many different and exciting falsies from the brand, however our favourites were from the Deluxe 3D Silk Collection. The lashes in this collection are cruelty free and light-weight, with a thin cotton band for a luxurious feel. These lashes add intense volume and lengthen the look of your eyelashes, and can last an amazing 15 uses. You can use Pinky Goat’s exclusive GLUEME Lash Adhesive and Gold Lash Applicator as well for perfect results.

This range alone has 9 styles to choose from, so there are many options for whatever look you’re going for. We loved Mayar from the collection, the lashes were voluminous but understated enough to look elegant and life-like.

To take your lashes to the next level, try Pinky Goat’s 3D Silk Collection False Lashes. You can purchase them here for £21.00.

Eye of Horus – Baked Goddess Eyeshadow Palettes

Here at The Amazing Blog, we love to add a bit of sparkle to our eyes. Going into Autumn/Winter, we're always on the lookout for the perfect shades to compliment our wintry wardrobes. With this in mind, we are very glad to present you with our newfound love, the new Baked Goddess Eyeshadow Palettes from Eye of Horus.

If you can picture yourself wandering the streets of Ancient Egypt, then you'll certainly be able to get on board with the inspiration behind these palettes and the Eye of Horus brand. Four mysterious and charming palettes for cool and warmer styles, there's certainly something for every taste. The Sekhmet Smokey and Sheba Mystical Shadow Palettes have a hint of desert to them, and have us in the mind of night and day. The Sekhmet Smokey Shadow Palette has silverpale moon and anthracite night colours, perfect for those of us in the office who favour a more sultry evening look. The Sheba Mystical Palette is a mesmerising reflection of a desert horizon and has a hint of sheen in each pan - this palette goes from a very pale champagne to a deeper plum and is a must have for an autumnal inspired style.

The Maat Sultry Shadow Palette offers a choice of warm, chocolaty shades. We’re talking about wonderfully pigmented matte hues from a light beige to a deep brown, the ideal palette for creating a warm smoky eye style that will give your glance an enigmatic look. Last but certainly not least, the Luminous Isis Shadow Palette is fantastic for an autumn, or indeed a Christmas party look. Express yourself like a true goddess with a vivid rose gold, a shimmering antique gold and a rusty bronze. Glowing with a golden undertone, the metallic finish of these shadows is absolutely enchanting.

Eye of Horus' formulas are pretty impressive. These velvety, long-lasting shadows are paraben-free, and are made with essential oils and natural waxes, making them a great discovery if you have sensitive eyes. Being cruelty-free doesn’t mean compromising on quality. These beautiful palettes have an amazing colour pay off, blending beautifully both wet and dry. And even without a primer, we found that the shadows didn't shift all day. Treat yourself to these beautiful shades here. They’re all available for £22.50

Friday Favourites- New Years Eve Make Up

It’s not long until we will welcome in the New Year with either a wonderful party or celebrations with friends. We only have a few days between now and then to prepare, so we thought that we'd offer a few suggestions for you to have a splurge with your Christmas spending money. At The Amazing Blog we've picked a few of our very favourite make-up finds to help you create that perfect eye catching look to see in 2014! Loose Glitter Pigment imageThe Rouge Bunny Rouge make-up collection is just the place to head with that Christmas spending money. One of my personal favourite products is the Loose Glitter Pigment in all its girly, baby pink glory. It’s just what you need to add a little sparkle to your outfit and jazz things up a bit on this special evening. The pigment contains pearl, making it extraordinarily luminescent on the skin. It also has added Sodium PCA which is a natural moisturiser, this means that the pigment is not drying on your skin so it is extremely soft and creamy and can be applied to the skin with ease. The bottle contains a built in applicator wand to prevent any of the pigment from being spilled and the wand is tipped with a soft sponge for easy application of the pigment. It applies to the skin lightly and evenly giving a soft and delicate look with a gorgeous shimmer. This pigment is perfect to wear either alone or blended with other eye shadows. The Loose Glitter Pigments are available in six other colours and you can get your hands on your own from the Rouge Bunny Rouge Website for £19.34.

            intropack

Cozmetic Lab has a great selection of loose powders for the face. They have created an 'Intro Pack' which comprises of a foundation, eye shadow, bronzer and blush so you can create your complete look. This Australian mineral make-up for women who want to be noticed. The powdered foundation is light weight and sets well, making it useful for concealing, coverage and setting. It’s also oil free which makes it much better for keeping your skin in tip top condition. I was surprised at how well the powder covered imperfections as usually I need to use a liquid foundation for more coverage. I particularly liked the fact that it has an SPF 25, no talc and has a fabulous illuminating effect on the skin - unlike may other mineral brands which have left my complexion rather dull and flat. This product was a big hit with The Amazing Blog team. The bronzer also blends seamlessly in, giving you a natural glowing tan. It has a subtle effect which means you look tanned, rather than looking like you’re wearing make-up. If you prefer to go with the rosy finish then the blush is just the thing for this. It sits well on the cheeks and has a slight shimmer but nothing too unnatural. When you’re out in the cold this New Years you’re bound to get some pink skin, so you may as well make it a more flattering cheek colour with this blush. The eye shadow creates an attention grabbing smoky eye to give you a seductive and mysterious edge for these celebrations. All the powders stay on the skin really well, there’s no slipping and sliding with this make-up. The ingredients also mean shine won’t be a problem so you can stay looking glam and fabulous all evening. The Intro Pack is £42 and can be found here.

 

 

If you are a loyal reader of our blog then you will already know how much we love Eye of Horus because of our post here.They popped into our heads as soon as we started thinking about getting striking eyes for New Year. Two colours that we suggest for this occasion are the Teal Malachite Goddess Pencil and the Smokey Eye Goddess Pencil, either alone or blended together. The Smokey Eye Goddess Pencil is a classic black with extreme definition. The exotic pencil glides effortlessly with no smudge because of the ingredients and creamy formula. They are waterproof too which is ideal because the weather is very unpredictable. If smouldering is the look you intend to create then smouldering you will get with these pencils.  The teal is a little more creative and adventurous, we love this bright colour which can be applied either as a subtle line around the eye or smudged to create more of an eyeshadow effect. It will certainly enhance and illuminate your eyes with its hypnotic shimmer. The smudger tip gives you a lot of leeway when deciding on the style you want to create. They are only £13 and will last all night long and more. These currently can be found on their UK website Eye of Horus , in store at John Bell & Croyden or online at cocktail cosmetics

miners foundation

For a more simple make-up looks this New Year, try the pressed  Miners Fresh Faced Powder. You can read our post on the Miners liquid foundation here, but this powder is something a little lighter and understated with a matting effect. These form a brand new collection of powder shades designed to even out skin tone and conceal imperfections, to create that all important flawless finish. The powder comes in Translucent Ivory, Soft Sand, and Warm Honey. They are only £3.99 and found on the Miners website here.

5763-Rose-Jam-Lush-Scent-640-x-587

As well as making yourself look glam, it’s always important to smell the part too. Lush have just released a new collection of limited edition scents. Our favourite is the Rose Jam; a fruity but strong scent guaranteed to get you noticed. The scent is made from real Turkish rose oil and rose absolute, blended with a hint of zingy lemon and a dash of geranium oil. This mixture helps to create this gorgeous sweet and floral scent. Unlike other rose scented perfumes, that may remind you a bit of your granny, this one from Lush is rich, powerful and modern, and a spray or two will last you all night. They are at a very affordable £30 for 30ml, and only available online from here, and are also in limited quantities, so get them while you can!

 

Eye of Horus

The Ancient Egyptians were one of the most influential civalisations in the progression of make-up, encouraging people to become creative with their image. The Amazing Blog would like to thank this bright and speculative culture, as we really do love our cosmetics and have plenty of them to talk about on our blog. Our eyes are one of the best places to focus on when we feel like experimenting, so when we discovered Eye of Horus, who successfully combinines Egyptian culture with make-up, we were very intrigued. The Eye of Horus itself is an ancient Egyptian symbol, representing healing, wisdom, and prosperity. Eye of Horus uses a selection of plant based ingredients in their formulas, just as the Egyptians once did. An effective mixture of Carnauba Wax, Beeswax, Rice Bran Wax, Candelilla Wax and Moringa Oil help to structure the Goddess Mascara, Eye Pencils, and Liquid Define. The principles behind the brand add to its appeal as everything is ethical and none of the products are tested on animals.

MASACARA WHITE Eye of Horus's Goddess Mascara is formulated with the intention of nurturing our natural lashes. This mascara has become an essential for the whole team, our Executive Editor, Edwina, confidently says that this is the best mascara she has ever used. The Beauty Shortlist really likes it too, so if you don't believe us take a look at what they thought too. The wand is designed to avoid clumps and keep the lashes looking conditioned, which we absolutely agree it does. You can apply one layer for a natural look with a little depth and extra length. If you want a more dramatic effect, add more coats for a striking exaggeration of your lashes, which we think is the perfect look for upcoming Christmas parties. Also, the mascara removes very easily (flannel and warm water do the job excellently!) although it's water resistant.

new pencil

The Goddess Smokey Eye Pencils are creamy eye liners which have the benefits of being smudge proof, waterproof and long lasting. They are great for an exotic finish, their smudging tip allows you to blend the liner for a smouldering effect. These pencils are great for both day and evening make-up looks. The ingredients encourage a long lasting effect so you won’t need to worry about smearing your make-up on a night out. If you don’t like wearing primer on your eye lids then these will be perfect for you. So, just as the Ancient Egyptians did, you can experiment with different shades to accentuate your eyes in different ways. The Eye Pencil range offers stunning shades in Black, Bronze Amulet, Teal Malachite, Charcoal Obsidian and Serpentine Sultry. They are all colours to represent a glamorous and seductive look and are great for drawing attention to your eyes.final new liq

If eye pencils aren’t your thing, and you prefer a liquid liner, then Eye of Horus will still be great for you. Their range also includes an easy to use Liquid Define. This product is smudge proof and long lasting, two essential qualities for an eye liner. We hate it when a liquid eye liner takes too long to dry and leaves you with marks in the crease of our eye lids. Luckily, Eye of Horus use ingredients in this liner to prevent that from being an issue. With a reversible tip, there is a guaranteed fine point even after using the product for a while, so the application can create a thin, understated line, or if you prefer, a bolder statement look, depending on how you choose to apply it.

If the Ancient Egyptian values and stunning shades of these Eye of Horus products appeal to you, you can take a look at their range on the Eye of Horus website or Cocktail Cosmetics. The mascara is £17, and all the eye liners are £13.
