Hey loveliesss, Welcome back! I hope you’re all warm and well!
I recently published a post on testing W7 make up and it seems you guys really enjoyed that. So I thought I’d create another post testing technic makeup or you all. I was lucky enough to be sent some best selling products to try.. Technic are a company I’ve seen pop up here and there around the blogger world and I’ve been meaning to try their products for a while. Obviously I jumped at the chance to work with them and share my thoughts with you guys!
As you can see, there’s a lot of pretty products to get through. Grab a cuppa and a snack, this is probably going to be a long one.
Contour, highlight, blush stix – £2.99
Loved the concept of these “Stix” and I haven’t really tried stick contours before so I was hoping it was as easy as it looked, and it was. I just used the dark contour crayon to carve under my cheek bone and blended it out with a sponge. If I’m being picky the shade was a little too warm for me but it performed well and it used some powder to set. The highlight and blush stix didn’t really work for me. After about a hour the product starting bunching together on my cheeks and it started looking a little odd.. The shades were so pretty and easy to apply though which is such a shame.
Technic strobe kit “Bronze” – £3.00
This handy little kit includes two powder highlights and two cream, the kit they sent over wasn’t 100% for my skin tone as it was the “Bronze” one and I’m a pale kinda girl but I got use of two of the four shades which just so happened to be the cream shades. To apply the shades I used the tip of my damp beauty sponge and bounced the lighter white toned shade over the high points of my face. The product applied easily and gave a pretty glow to my skin but it felt a little oily. I’m not sure if this is due to the super lush warm weather we’ve had recently but over time it seemed to kind of melt? The darker bronze shades in the palette looked so silly as a highlight for me, but they did make a cute shimmer shadow for my lids. Packaging wise, the palette was quite cheap feeling and very flimsy, not my favourite but if you’re not about packaging this shouldn’t be an issue for you.
Technic ultimate brow kit – £3.50
We’ve seen kits like this for a while and I’ve tried a few in my time but I’ve always gone back to my pencils. Maybe this would change my mind. The kit comes with 3 different brow powders, a white wax, two tiny brushes and a small pair of tweezers. I didn’t use the brushes in this kit because they’re too small but more tweezers is super handy. Using a small angled brush I popped some wax through my brows to keep them in place and then I applied a little of the darker shade through the tail end of my brow. Using the medium toned brown I filled in the front of my brow and created a little ombre affect. The powders were nicely pigmented and didn’t feel chalky to use. I did quite like this little kit and it’s super handy to pop in your hand bag for on the go!
Technic Juicy stick “plum” £2.20
When I’m not wearing a nude lip, I like a dark vampy colour. This dark plum shade is perfect for me. It’s a matte formula but feels comfortable on the lips. The stick was easy to apply and lasted well throughout the day. Purples are usually quite tricky to perfect, but this is quite close. If you love a dark lip. I’d recommend giving this a go, for the price point, you can’t go wrong.
Technic chunky black liner pen – £2.80
A felt tip like nib is favourite on a liquid liner, it allows me to get right down to the lash line and create sharp flicks. This liner lives up to the “Chunky” name. It was a little tricky to be precise with but the colour is SUPER black and it doesn’t breakdown or flake throughout the day which is a bonus! For bold liner days, I’ll be sure to use this!
Technic mega nudes 2 eye shadow palette – £3.00
Colour scheme wise, this palette is right up my street! There are some stunning bronzey shimmer shades, few greys and neutrals too! Unfortunately, the colour pay off was a little disappointing and the formula really lacked pigmentation which was such a shame! The shades swatched okay but just didn’t translate onto my lid. It took a lot to build up the colour on the lid but they did blend well together, eventually. When my palette arrived, the clear plastic lid had cracked and the text had been worn away. I’m wondering if perhaps I was set an old one? Either way I don’t think I will be using this palette again, I have so many like it that are of much higher quality.
The brand was a little hit and miss for me. Some products worked a lot better for me than others but I can see this being a good starting point for people just getting into make up and experimenting with colours and techniques. The price point is very affordable if you’re on a budget, just be careful of the packaging.
