HELLO YELLOW // Light Yellow Colour Supplement - LUSH Cosmetics

I wasn’t sure what to make of LUSH’s make up range at first.

Would it stand up to the task?

Would it be drying and make my skin dull?

Thankfully exactly the opposite.

This foundation includes a delicate rose petal infusion within the ingredients that reduces redness - which is immediately noticeable - and a smooth, light consistency induces a subtle glow underneath makeup.

For me, it’s more like a tinted moisturiser in its coverage than a foundation - so if you're looking for something a little more concealing, I wouldn’t say this is the one for you.

But I do get a lot of sweet compliments about my skin and I swear it's down to a little dab of this - under my eyes, chin and nose - first thing within my beauty regime to add a subtle dewy finish.

GO FIGURE // Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick - HOURGLASS

Rich strong pigmentation? Yes.
Wear that’ll last a working day? Yes.
Velvety feel that doesn’t flake, crumble or bleed? Yes.
Simple, sleek packaging that fits snuggly in your palm? Yes.

This is one of my go-to favourite lip colours. It’s smooth liquid-consistency means it’s applied with a stick like a lip gloss as opposed to straight from the bullet, but doesn't feel sticky.

My chosen colours are Riveria (pillar box red) & Muse (vivid pink-coral).

BURGUNDY LIP

US Based brand MELT formed by make up artists Lora & Dana boast a lipstick based on the foundation of being cruelty & paraben free. However, there is one thing to note & that is this particular shade isn't vegan if that's important to you.

The pigmentation is strong - rich, deep & dark - just what I was looking for in the Winter months and the feel is an ultra, powdery matte.

There is a slight downside - for someone that's used to the dreamy, creamy texture that comes from a trusty, vanilla cupcake scented Mac Lipstick - I found it was a little drying. It takes a bit of patience to maintain the right balance of buff, balm & re-application.

This particular shade (6SIX6) is perfect for these current blustery, Wintery months but BANG BANG & SUMMER would be my next go-to shades as Spring starts to show its fresh face.
