I was kindly sent a few items to review of Glo & Ray from Focus PR, I have seen this brand quite a lot lately on people’s blogs and have read good things so I was really excited to try these out for myself. If you have not heard of Glo & Ray before then below gives you a gist of what the brand is about.

Glo & Ray is a British company which draws inspiration from the natural wonder of light. The name Glo & Ray is derived from ‘Glo’, a gentle luminance; and ‘Ray’, a vibrant beam of light. We look to harness each woman’s natural radiance to deliver a stunning collection designed to illuminate individual beauty. 

Our range of British made cosmetics complements every woman’s unique look, uniting the radiant elegance of light with both grace and femininity. We believe that every woman is uniquely beautiful and at Glo & Ray we simply provide the tools to illuminate this stunning individuality.
 
With a host of media, bloggers and make-up artists testifying to the quality, colour and design of our exciting collection, the brand looks set for nationwide domination.”
I really like where the brand name Glo & Ray has driven from, it is really creative. I was allowed to look around their website and choose a couple of items that I would like to review, I was sent ‘Mariposa Quartet Eye Shadow’ palette in ‘Violet Emotion 400’ and ‘La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour’ in ‘Mysterious 640’ .
 
*La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour – Mysterious 640 (RRP 12)
Drench your lips with colour shine! Our La Amo creamy shimmer collection features a Light Colour Fitness Complex alongside Micro-Shine Particles to provide a dazzling effect for irresistibly fuller looking lips.

Enriched with pigment and with a shimmer finish, lips are left soft, moisturised and with a flash of colour.”

I am a sucker for a red lip at the minute, it really does compliment my pale skin so when I saw this shade on their website I knew I had to review it. When this arrived I was instantly amazed with the packaging, it is stunning, a lovely black matte box which feels high quality. This lipstick really does live up to it’s claims, I have incredibly dry lips especially during the winter so finding a lipstick that does not cling to the dryness is quite hard. This one glides across them with their creamy formula leaving them feeling moisturised and full of colour. The formula is also intensely pigmented which I love, it creates a strong bold lip which in my opinion looks absolutely amazing. The longevity of this lipstick also amazes me, I have found that it lasts throughout eating and drinking and is still there at the end of the day with only one touch up. I am really happy with this product and definitely have my eyes on a couple more shades!
*Mariposa Quartet Eye Shadow – Violet Emotion 400 (RRP £12)

“Combining vibrant pops of colours with delicate neutrals, the Mariposa eye shadow quartet offers the perfect mix to illuminate eyes with multiple effects.

Natural mineral particles create a silky texture which is both long-lasting and smudge-proof, achieving flawless radiance with perfect pigment.”

As I have mentioned before in a couple of blog posts I absolutely adore purple and grey so the choice of palette was a no brainer. Again the packaging of Glo & Ray products are stunning, it feels really expensive and high quality. The shades in the palette are highly pigmented with great lasting power, I wore one of the purple shades all day without any primer or touch ups needed. I also found that the eyeshadow also did not crease which is a godsend as most of what I wear do and it is definitely a huge pain in the arse!

Overall, I am absolutely in love with Glo&Ray’s products, from the packaging to the pigmentation it is all fantastic in my opinion. I shall definitely have to pick up a couple of other bits, on my wish list is their ‘Nebulae Fluid Foundation’ and ‘Ballon Pop Lasting Silky Eyeliner Set’.
