I was recently sent a small bundle of products to try out from an unfamiliar band – Lola Cosmetics. I love discovering new brands so I was super excited to find out what they were like! If you haven’t heard of Lola, it’s a new British designed makeup brand created by professional makeup artists. Lola offers a wide range of colours, high quality textures and professional artisty tools, and products are available exclusively at selected M&S stores and M&S Online.
Their autumn / winter collection, entitled IT GIRL is inspired by the ‘intoxicating buzz of ’60’s and ’70’s downtown New York’
Showcasing a painterly way of wearing colour to create more edgy, statement looks. It’s a more creative take on colour blocking and the smokey eye. Lips tell three different stories: nude throws a retro focus on dark and dramatic eyes; deep berry gives a sultry rock goddess vibe, whilst the bright hue of our Hot Pink Lip Gloss shocks in just the right way.
Lipgloss in Hot Pink (£10) – this gloss contains hydrating hyaluronic acid which works in combination with an active vitamin complex to help volumise and condition lip, and aloe vera extract to help soothe and repair. I’m not the biggest gloss fan at the moment as I prefer lipsticks, but this really is a pretty decent product. It has a non sticky finish and gives a lovely glossy shine. I love the bright pink colour too!
Single eyeshadow in Dark Blue (£10) – this eyeshadow contains silicon particles and emollient oils to give an ultra-silky touch, excellent adherence and help prevent creasing. This really is a beautifully finely milled, super soft shadow. It’s easy to work with and blend, I have no complaints with this one! Blue is notoriously a difficult eyeshadow colour to pull off, but I think once you have the nack, this shade would look gorgeous paired with a nude lip.
And lastly the Eye Pencil in Gold (£10) – this medium-soft pencil glides on smoothly for easy application and good coverage. The formula is definitely soft and doesn’t drag, but it doesn’t have the best coverage and is pretty sheer. I’m a big fan of high pigmented products so I’d have loved if this came out as intense deep gold. This is a light sparkly gold shade though so it could work really well on the inner corners of the eye as a highlighter.
Overall I’m impressed with these products, with ech of them being £10 each they’re probably a bit more than I’d like to pay, but I’ll definitely be checking the rest of the product range out when I’m in M&S to see if anything catches my eye!
I’d love to hear if you’ve tried Lola cosmetics before? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
