MDM Flow Lipstick ($25.50): Bossy
With a heavy 90s influence, Florence (the brands owner) has brought to life a brand best known for their lipsticks and mascaras. Bossy is a matte grey-brown shade that has just enough brown tones to be wearable with a hint of grey to be edgy. Although this lipstick feels dry and has a bit of a tug to it when applying, it is comfortable on the lips and lasts a long time. For my matte lipstick lovers, this could be a cool brand worth checking out and is beauty watched approved
IMAN Cosmetics Luxury Blushing Powder Posh ($15 CAD) in Allure
Although not as indie of a brand as the rest, Iman is still a fairly new brand to me that I don’t know too much about. The Iman brand was created with ‘skin of colours’ in mind (per the website) and contains an extensive line from foundation and concealer to blushers and powders. The brand has been around for quite some time (23 years to be exact!) founded by Somalian model Iman (married to David Bowie). The blush is incredibly pigmented with a unique copper colour to it, unlike any other blush I have. I love it for it’s uniqueness and am curious to try out more from her line.

Chosungah 22 Raybeam Up Cream ($24.51 CAD)
Founded in Korea by a makeup artist Chosungah, they created a lipstick with MAC Cosmetics, being the first Korean collaboration with MAC. Moving on from there, Chosungah is a well established Korean brand that sometimes features its product on Sephora. The Raybeam cream is the most etherial glow from within product that I own. It’s perfect for days that I want a no-makeup look, leaving the sparkles and glitter at home. This applies a beautiful dew on my skin with a reflective finish to lift my cheek bones and give me a glow. This is beauty swatched approved!
