Dare Makeup Eyeshadow Palette

Hello lovelies. Today I want to chat to you about a cruelty free brand that I recently discovered, Dare Makeup. A collection of natural makeup that offers you a range of products for any occasion. Providing you with all the essentials you need in your cosmetics bag, from lipgloss of all shades and long-lasting lipliner, to eyeshadow and gel effect nail polish, you can create the ultimate look, day or night. These products are not tested on animals, and are ethically packaged (the packaging materials are sourced from recycled materials and can be recycled).

In addition to receiving the products, I was fortunate to attend the launch and play around with the various products (launched in July this year). Today I will be speaking about 3 of my favourite Dare Makeup products.

Dare Makeup Nudes 12 Colour Eye Shadow Palette

Dare Makeup Nudes 12 Colour Eye Shadow Palette

I absolutely adore the 12 neutral shades that are longlasting and very easy to blend. The combination of colours also allows you to create a natural (I usually opt for natural) or a bold look. This palette has shades of bronze, peach, black, maroon and green in order to different looks for any occasion. It’s a neutral palette with pigmented shades which lasts for 6-8 hours. I adore the combination of colours which work well on all skin tones. The mirror and brush allows for application anywhere, just pop it into your makeup bag and you’re good to go! The palette retails for R500.00.

Dake Makeup Black All-in-One Mascara

Dake Makeup Black All-in-One Mascara

Dare Makeup mascara delivers on volume, length and intense colour. My eyelashes are very short, so I needed to apply 2-3 coats for the desired effect. The waterproof mascara does take a little bit longer to dry (Tip: apply one coat at a time, giving it a minute interval). The center of the brush has a hollow core to collect more product and give your lashes a dramatic effect. The Dare Makeup mascara brush is easy to use and coats those tiny lashes with minimal effect. The outer part of the brush is thicker, therefore it coated my small lashes easily. I’ve mentioned before that my eyes are senstive and I cannot wear any brand of mascara. Thankfully, this mascara did not irritate my lashes. I also have to mention that removing the mascara was a breeze! The mascara retails for R200.00

Dare Makeup Mistery Gel Effect Nail Polish

Dare Makeup Mistery Gel Effect Nail Polish

This is my favourite product in the Dare Makeup range. I adore this shade and nail polish, I think it works well with every skin tone (my sisters and I are all wearing this shade and we LOVE it). The bright colour reminds me of Summer, I will be wearing it during Spring and Summer. The nail polish is long-lasting, even without applying a top coat. It lasted for a week without any cracks or chips. After applying my Dake Makeup nail polish, the colour nor shine faded (without a top coat). It remained shiny throughout the week with a smooth finish. The nail polish dries quickly and retails for R180.00.

    I would love to win since I’m seriously contemplating wearing make up more often, as in daily which I’m not doing at the moment. The fact that the hamper consist of nudes will definitely make the transition much easier cause I wouldn’t want anyone to have an attack of some sort when I start rocking up at the office with bold colours. @lynnie187

    After recently becoming both a wife and mom, and having the daunting thought of needing to go back to work in a months time, I’ve been giving my ‘look’ (actually I can’t even call it a look, it’s more like put whatever on that’s clean and doesn’t need ironing) a lot of thought, I’ve been reinvented and it’s time my ‘look’ reflects that. Winning this price will mean just that! A fresh face for a fresh beginning, a new era of me, wife, mom, and corporate employee.

    I would love to win this hamper. My friend is getting married early next month and her bachelorette party is the end of this month. Along with the theme, this hamper will really help me pull the look off that I need. And seeing as though my very close friend and I will be the only single ladies at the wedding, we definitely need to pull it off. Please please help me win this hamper.

  4. I would love to win this because I’m going cruelty free and I also love purchasing from brands that use recycled packaging. I haven’t tried all the products of this brand ans I’m keen to test and also review them.

    I would love to add this to my make up collection as I am a HUGE make-up fan and love to try out various brands. Make up is such a confidence booster my goodness. When I put make up on, its like, damn girl! There’s no better feeling than feeling sexy in my own skin and super proud to be my husbands wife looking the way i do putting on some make up and feeling better about myself when im out and about❤️

  6. I would love to win this incredible makeup hamper because spring has sprung and it’s my birthday month. Yeah!!! An ideal birthday present that any female would love that symbolises that cherry on a birthday cake; hence my name as well lol 🙂 . I am also a lover for makeup; especially natural tones that compliments my skin. I am not one for dark heavy makeup. I feel that my skin still needs to breathe; if I can put it like that. I am also keen on trying different brands to see what will compliment well with my skin due to having a combination skin. With Dare Makeup’s range being a natural collection I am sure it will go well with my skin.

    In all honesty, my make up bag is a bit of an embarrassment to me. I have odds and ends of hand me down make-up. I think i have more eyeshadow in my actual bag from it crumbling and falling out, than I have in the holder. I love make-up, but with young kids that are growing like weeds, it always finds is way to the bottom of the wishlist.
