When I was walking through boots I discovered this new stand – I always like to try out new drug store make up as over the years Ive found products which really stand out and are better than counter make up counterparts. Drug store make up has really up’d its game with highly pigmented shadows and longer lasting formulations, This brand is no exception.
I picked up 2 lipsticks ‘the one’ a nudey shade and ‘Divine’ a light peachy coral colour, as well as a Nudey smokey palette called ICONIC 2, which included mattes and shimmers from nude, golds to dark bronzes.
The eyeshadows are highly pigmented and have a really nice finish to them. They are also incredibly long lasting, even with no base or primed eyelid. The colours are the perfect complement to each other when creating a nude/bronze smokey eye and has colours to highlight, colour and shade. The shadows are so bendable and really are amazing for the price of the palette!….
The lipsticks are great in colour, the texture is quite waxy so if your lips are anything but smooth any dry areas will show ( especially with the divine shade) but the colour is great. Once on I found the lipsticks last a normal amount of time but can settle into creases, The formulation feels very moisturizing on the lips and quite smooth.
