Black Up is a luxury Parisian makeup brand that caters to women of colour. They sent me some of their items to try out including their newly  launched brushes -Check out the review below.

Black Up  Matte definition foundation brush

Get Here

Almost every big makeup brand has an oval brush collection, from makeup revolution, Artis to MAC- the toothbrush/spoon shaped brush with an oval paddle head which has super soft yet densely packed bristles that gives an airbrushed finish for applying powders, minerals, liquids or creams.

I never used an oval brush  before so I was curious to see the difference it would make in my foundation application .The brush feels velvety soft smooth, even and flawless finish, does not let it settle in the dry patches so it gives an airbrushed finish.

Its worked really well with my Lancôme liquid foundation, concealer and the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter I reviewed recently here

Black Up  Cream Contouring Brush

Get Here

This brush is double ended-One end for applying colour to your face and the other end is for blending them out  .The bristles of the dark contouring brush end  are shaped in almost a slope design, and they’re a lot less densely packed than the oval foundation brush .

I used to use my beauty blender to blend contour colors,now I just use this,its alot more precise!

Black Up  Matte Definition Powder Foundation Brush

Get Here

It’s a natural bristle brush with longer hair and it’s pinched so its a flatter brush.This is a great brush for applying a pressed setting powder – it does not pick to much product so it is difficult to over apply which is never attractive with any powder product.This is now my go to powder brush

Black Up 3 IN 1 Matte Brows

Get Here

This brow pencil is my favoutite prodcut.It comes in two shades ,mine is CONTSR02 (Its a dark brown shade) the other is a light brown shade.

This brow wax is retractable ,no need to sharpen,so you wont be wasting any product -unless your clumsy like me and end up breaking it anyways-hasn’t happened with this yet so I’m being extra careful .Using the spoolie blends the brow wax  very well so it leaves a soft, natural finishing on the brows.

Black Up Matte lipstick in RGE 31M

Get Here

Black Up lipsticks come is 30 shades!! 18 Satin finish lipsticks (thanks to their smooth comfortable texture, those lipsticks glide on the lips to offer perfect coverage and radiant color) and 12 Matte lipsticks (their semi-matte texture covers the lips in beautiful veil of velvety colour. The lips stay comfortable and the color impeccable for 8 hours!)

I wore this for a whole day and I didn’t need to reapply- I must also add that my lips are super dry
