Testing L.O.V Products

L.O.V Makeup Review

| Testing L.O.V Products! |

My favourite thing about blogging is discovering new brands and one that has come onto my radar in the last few months is L.O.V Cosmetics. The brand offers good quality products with an affordable price tag. Lots of people have been raving about the brand recently and it's easy to see why! From a dreamy liquid highlighter to an Autumnal nail polish hue to a long-wearing liquid lipstick, here are a few products I've been trialling from L.O.V Cosmetics. 

My favourite product from the range is the LOVglow highlighting drops in No. 20 Sunlight Glow*, a golden champagne hue that provides a natural dewy finish to the skin. It doesn't contain any sparkle in it so it's an ideal product for my everyday makeup bag! This liquid highlighter is housed in swoon-worthy gold packaging and it comes with a pipette dispenser which makes it easy to dispense the right amount of product. I've been applying it different ways from mixing a few drops into a matte or satin foundation to add radiance to my complexion, as well as dabbing a small amount onto my cheekbones, cupid's bow and down the centre of my nose to achieve that lit-from-within glow. It can also be worn underneath a powder highlighter to make it pop even more, making it ideal for transitioning your makeup from day to night - A handy one to have come party season at the end of the year!

My next favourite from the brand is their lip affair colour & care lip pencil in no. 502* which is a classic "my lips but better" nude shade that compliments most nude lipstick hues. It comes with a lip brush on the other end that's handy for blending lip liner and lipstick together for a seamless finish. The longevity is the most impressive component of the liner as it lasted for the majority of the day. I've been pairing it with the liquid lipstick from the brand (more on that in a minute!) as well as my favourite everyday lipstick - Mac Modesty - for College days. I usually apply the liner all over my lips and then apply Modesty on top. The lipstick isn't very long-lasting due to the cream-sheen formula but as the lipstick wore off, the liner was still there so I don't have to worry about topping up my lipstick in the middle of lectures.  

Another great lip discovery from the brand is their Fatal Muse liquid matte lipstick in no.730 Confession*. If you're a fan of the soft matte lip creams from NYX then you'll love this! Similarly to the NYX version, the velvety formula and mousse-like texture makes it comfortable to wear and non-drying. The lipstick lasted very well on me, it would usually start to break down after about 6 hours but it faded evenly so I got away with not reapplying it as I'm usually home by then. Although the lip liner isn't a perfect match for the lipstick shade, I was still able to pair the two together because the liner shade is so close to my natural lip colour. They're a great long-lasting duo that will remain in my makeup bag for the foreseeable future!

Most days I'm rushing to head out the door so I need quick and convenient products in my everyday makeup bag. Enter the LOV Iconyx eyeshadow palette* which contains five satin eyeshadows. The three neutral shades look beautiful swiped onto the lid on their own and it creates a simple look in a few seconds - Perfect for those early morning starts! The formula of the eyeshadows are silky soft and they have good pigmentation. The shades include a deep forest green, a paler green hue, a white highlight shade, a deep champagne nude and a chocolate brown. 

I've also been testing out their Eyettraction Magnetic Loose Eyeshadow in no. 560 Metallure*. This eyeshadow has an interesting and unique formula that I've never come across before. It has a very soft texture and it can be worn wet or dry but in my opinion, this particular shade looks better when applied with a wet brush. Using a wet brush to apply it creates the most beautiful foil effect! I would describe the shade as a dark silvery grey with deep purple undertones. I think it looks beautiful paired with matte purple shades to create a vampy look that's perfect for the A/W months! 

The RoyaLiner eyeliner pen in no. 110 Grey Allure* can also be found in my makeup bag at the moment. The dark slate grey shade is something a bit different and it's nice for everyday wear as it's not as intense as a black eyeliner. The eyeliner has been holding up well during the day, no smudging or fading and it looked the exact same when I went to take it off in the evening as it did when I first applied it in the morning. The fine nib makes it easy to create the perfect line along the top lash line as well as creating a flick that we all know and love!

And last but not least, the LOVinity long-lasting nail lacquer in no. 210 Alluring Amethyst* has been my nail polish of choice recently. The rich burgundy shade is a quintessential Autumn hue and the flat wide brush allows for a smooth and easy application. The formula is non-streaky and I could get away with one coat but two coats makes the shade richer and more vibrant. 

Have you tried any products from this brand?
