Sorry for my lack of posts recently, i haven't been too well the last week (a horible chest infection) but i'm on the mend now and will resume full blogging duties :) Anyways...
Last week I was kindly sent some products to review from the lovely Harriet at Smooch.
This review is 100% my honest opinions on the products, i've not been paid to write this (please read my disclaimer).
The Smooch range includes Mascara, Eyeshadows, Nail polish's to Bronzer and Lipsticks.
Just incase your not familiar with Smooch, heres a little about them:
"The concept for Smooch came quite simply from a drawer of
Whilst getting ready for a big night out, Kitty mused over the
fact that cosmetics were really like underwear – you have your basics, everyday
white, black and nudes. These are the foundation of your lingerie
Then you have the other section, the items you save for special
occasions, the bra with extra lace that offers additional cleavage, the super
sheer pants that give you a great bum with no vpl and make your legs go on
Cosmetics are a little like your lingerie drawer, you have your
everyday basics that you apply without really thinking about it, then you have
the special mascara and uber gloss for that big night out.Why thought Kitty,
can’t we have a cosmetics range that combines the two, so Smooch came into
Smooch “Cosmetics with Sex appeal”
I received a Lipstick (in Sweet Tooth), a Duo Eyeshadow (in Dirty Martini) and a Liqiud Eyeliner (in black).
First of all, lets talk about the packaging- it reminds me a little of Nars. The packaging really is beautiful and oozes sophisication. It's simple, chic & effective, everything i look for in packaging when it comes to a new product.
Now about the products:
This lipstick is a beautiful medium pink shade called Sweet Tooth and applies nice and sheer. Perfect for every day wear, it's easy on the eyes and nothing too heavy or pigmented. You do have to re-apply it after a few hours or so but thats the usual with most lipsticks. This costs £7.50, there are 12 shades of luscious lipsticks to choose from.
The duo eyeshadow, Dirty Martini (love the name) is two complementary shades- a shimmery light cream and a glistening olive green. Really nicely pigmented and they have great staying power. This costs £9.50 and there is a wide range of duo's to pick from on the smooch site. This wouldn't be a duo colour i would have normally chose myself as i'm more for dark browns, etc but i quite like this colour combo- it's a welcomed edition to my make up bag.
The liquid black eyeliner is fantastic, i'm a huge fan of dramatic feline flicks and this is just the product to create that look. This liner has got a great applicator, stays put all day and doesn't smudge. It costs £6.95.
I'm really impressed with this brand, the products are really good quality and are reasonably priced. I've got my eye on their Bronzer and a couple of their nail polish's: Chic and Chocolate Brownie.
Have you tried Smooch yet?
