I got a pleasant surprise at work this week when I had a bag of new goodies from beautyADDICTS waiting for me at my makeup space. As you may or may not know, I am an educator for the brand through one of its distributors (one of the many makeup jobs I do). One of the perks of said job is that I get new products sent my way to try out and play with. I do believe the following items are available in the US, however in Canada the official launch of these products are coming soon.
The first thing I went gaga over is the new (and improved in my opinion) brush set. It comes with 6 brushes and are sold in a functional case with a protective flap and a zipper compartment. The brushes are 100% synthetic and vegan approved and the handles are a sleek Birchwood with a matte silver furrule. I started using these on clients immediately and I was beyond impressed on how well they allow me to apply makeup. They all feel soft on the skin which will make them staples amongst my many tools.
The 6 brushes consist of (from left to right): Angle Face Brush, Foundation Brush, Eye Shader Brush, Doe-Foot Eye Contour and a dual ended Concealer Brush/Angle Liner + Brow Brush.
As well, there are three additional brushes that are sold separately and are the perfect compliment to the brush set. These are (from left to right): Bronzer/Powder Brush, Blender Brush and a Rounded Smudge Brush.
Next up to bat is a little bit of colour! As much as I LOVE getting brushes, I couldn’t help but geek out a little bit over the new Sweet Lips lipglosses. There are four fun shades to compliment each of the signature colour families that beautyADDICTS is famous for.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the four colour families that beautyADDICTS consists of, I will break it down for you. The brand has created these colour palettes to convey different moods, lifestyles and attitudes of a woman. This system of neutral colour palettes compliment ANY skin tone which is pretty amazing and easy for the everyday woman. These four families are: GLOW, EXPRESS, MOTIVATE and SEDUCE.

Back to the Sweet Lips glosses…
These shades all offer a high shine and really hydrate the lips with Vitamin E and Jojoba Butter. I love the sheerness of these glosses. You can easily layer them over a lipstick or wear them on their own. The applicator is a super soft brush that isn’t too big to ensure an easy application. Most importantly, they aren’t thick and sticky (which drives me crazy).
From L-R: GLOW – Blush, EXPRESS – Sheer Peach, MOTIVATE – Lilac, SEDUCE – Black Cherry
So there you have it makeup lovers! I can’t wait to continue my love affair with this brand. Be sure to keep an eye out for these products and I’ll be sure to incorporate the Sweet Lips lipglosses into my future “FOTD” looks.
