Hi My Loves
As you know from previous posts I am really quite getting into Vincent Longo Cosmetics since their launch in the UK from the US this year, You can see previous posts here or by using the search bar on the blog.
This time round I have been playing with the beauty that is Pearl X Eyeshadow in the shade Gypsy Rose £19.00, now I say shade but really should be quoting shades, there are a myriad to choose from in this beautiful hand made Italian compact, and I bet you will love this ! No two compacts can ever be 100% identical !!!!!!
This shadow is so finely milled it almost cream in texture, the pigmentation is out of this world and if you like a little bit of shine glam then this is for you. Long wearing and easy to apply, I found no crease lines or fading with this shadow even after a good few hours and that was without a lid primer :) If you are not a huge shadow wearer just take a small liner brush and run it along the top lash line and a little under the bottom lashes to just give your eyes a wide awake treatment with a little added glamour. Nothing about this product will ever look harsh or overdone.
One of the great things about the way these are made is that you can either simply sweep or swirl your brush to mix the shades into one, or you can use a tiny brush and pick out the individual specs of pigment, it is one of those products that you could quite easily get lost in by staring at it, It resembles a thousand tiny gems all compressed into one elegant little package.
Next up, is The Lip and Cheek Gel Stain in the shade Baby Boo £18.50. Right........I was really unsure about this when I first saw it, I am a lover of all things shiny when it comes to lips and am not really into anything dark or matte, on opening I am left thinking, not a chance !!!! but being the brave soul that I am I gave it a whirl, hmmm first impressions, is this really make up ? OK so this may be completely wrong and the company may well recoil in horror but it has become my absolute ultimate gym product, bare with me lol.
I am one of those people who can't stand to see a whole full face of make up in the gym, the thought of all that make up seeping it's way into my sweaty pores is the stuff of nightmares, BUT being of a *Cough* certain age, I cannot go out 100% bare faced, firstly I look like a new born Piglet and secondly I feel like rubbish when I see myself in those vile huge mirrors they insist on having !
OMG this lip and cheek stain is the wonder product for those times when you want a face but don't want a face, or if you are a lady that needs a lil lil something just to perk up your colour. It makes you look good but with magic trickery that makes you look like no effort or make up was used ! genius. The stain gives you fresh natural coloured lips while lasting forever, and a tiny weeny bit applied to the apples of your cheeks gives you enough to look glowing without the half marathon look.
