In my first post on LOV Cosmetics I did a full review of some of their base products and for todays post I’m going to follow it up with a full review of some of their eye products. I will probably be doing a part 3 which will most likely focus on some of their lip products.
Let’s start things off with the product that most people can’t go out in public without and that’s mascara. If I had to describe this mascara I would compare it to George Clooney-it gets better with age. The more this mascara dries out the better it applies, the more volume you achieve and the more dramatic the lashes. It’s got a very curved wand to it, and the formulation when I initially got it was very wet and gave a very natural effect when applied.
I automatically popped it aside as a hate, but a few days later I was stuck for mascara and so I tried it again and noticed it was a tad bit better. Now roughly 3 weeks in it’s basically my go to. I just recommend that when you go to by a new tube of this to make sure you’ve got enough of your old tube left so you can let the new one dry out a little.
The LOV Cosmetics Best Dressed eye liner is a gel liner in handy pencil like form. It’s also very highly comparable to the black liner from L’oreal that I recently reviewed (review linked below.) . I like this eyeliner, there’s nothing special about it. It gets the job done, has a great formula and doesn’t budge once it’s dry.
The end of the pencil has a built in topper so you can always have a sharp point to your liner. The pigmentation is very very good in that the black is super intense and has no greyness or brown in it whatsoever. You need a good gel liner than I would totally recommend this.
The same can be said about their Confidental liquid eyeliner. This is a felt tip liner and it has an extremely fine point to it to make sure you are able to create the perfect winged flick. I personally love how intense the pigmentation is with these liners as they’re so opaque and there is no patchiness to them whatsoever.
As far as black liners go these are some of the best that I’ve tried and I think the only other brand that does similar quality ones to these is L’oreal but it should be noted that these are more affordable than L’oreal price wise. When I plan on repurchasing, L’oreal has been pushed aside and these will be the ones I will go for.
Nude liner is just as essential as black eyeliner in any makeup collection. You should always ensure that you pick a nude liner that has a long-lasting formulation to it as most of the time the place of application for a product like this will be your waterline and you don’t want it to budge.
With regards to LOV Cosmetics nude liner I found it’s formula to be nice and creamy and very long-lasting. I applied it on my waterline in the morning and it was still there when I went to take my makeup off at night. Because of the type of nude shade it is you can definitely double this pencil up as a pin-point concealing pencil if you’re ever in situation where you’re stuck for concealer.
Let’s finish off this review with some eyeshadows and I’ve got two different formulations of them to share with you. The first is this champagne, almost icy white shade called 340 Winter Dessert.
I didn’t like this eyeshadow at all, it has little to no pigmentation to it whatsoever and the glitter it has is very chunky which results in a lot of fallout. The lack of pigmentation also makes it look like you just thrown a loose glitter on your lids and walked out the door.
The shade 120 Misty Earth which is a nice neutral brown, I absolutely adore. This is completely matte and blends to utter perfection. Looks so stunning on both brown and green eyes and is so pigmented that a little goes a long way.
Both these eyeshadows come with a mini eyeshadow applicator that always end up in the bin and have a handy mirror in the lid of their compact.
I should have part three up soon which ill be a review on some of the LOV Cosmetics lip products so make sure to subscribe in order not to miss that!
