I was kindly sent a number of items of Smooch Cosmetics from Aqua PR to review, I had never heard of this brand before so I was excited to give them a whirl. From a bit of searching around I have found this to be a budget brand so it is great for those wanting to save a few pennies after the January sales.
If you also have not heard of Smooch Cosmetics before then below lays out what the company is about.
“Cosmetics with Sex Appeal”
“Smooch Cosmetics, known for their saucy, lacy packaging and highly desirable range of colours. The concept came, quite simply, from a drawer of lingerie. The idea was to create a lust worthy cosmetics brand that was saucy and sexy without being salacious.
Launched in 2011 Smooch Cosmetics currently create products for Eyes, Face, Lips and Nails. Who needs shades of grey when we have over 50 shades of pink, red, plum, purple…..?
At Smooch it’s all about confidence. We love our packaging but know that if we were to peel back the lace you’d still have a product that helps you to look good and feel great.”
*Lipstick – Inferno
Unfortunately I am unable to quote the price of this lipstick as Smooch Cosmetics website is currently being updated. The lipstick comes in a gorgeous matte packaging with their logo printed on the lid and the shade on the base of the lipstick. I absolutely adore this shade, it has orange undertones and is definitely eye catching and bright perfect for my pale skin. This lipstick has a lovely creamy texture which is great as it does not cling to the dry skin on my lips however as for lasting power it does fade quite quickly, so quite a number of touch ups is required.
*Lipstick – Gossip
Considering this is quite a pinkish lipstick which I try and steer away from as it is not really my colour it does look really nice on. The formula for this lipstick is again really creamy so it does not emphasise those dry lips but infact moisturises them, the only thing really that I have found a problem with them is they do not stay put for very long.
*Blusher – Peachy (RRP £2.45)
This duo blush is in the shade ‘Peachy’ which one shade is quite a light shimmery peach shade and the other is a matte darker peach colour, I have found that they are super blendable which is great as it does not look like a big peach patch on your cheeks. The pigmentation of these blushers are intense so a little bit really does go a long way!
*Eyeshadow – Social Butterfly (RRP £0.94)
Again the eyeshadow duo comes in a matte packaging with their logo printed on the lid, what I like about this product already is that it is compact which means it is perfect to carry around in your handbag for touchups, if needed. It also has a nice sized mirror included which is also definitely perfect for those on the go touch ups. When I first saw the price of this palette I was not sure how good it would be, as it is 94p! But the shades are two stunning shimmery shades of purple; they really do compliment one another creating a gorgeous smoky eye look. The pigment of the shades are fantastic, full of colour with just one stroke across your eye lids, they are also great for blending.
Overall, considering the prices of these products the quality is actually pretty reasonable, the pigmentation of each product is intense, though the lasting power is not that great. But for a couple of pounds can you really complain?
