I’ve got a fabulous little gift set to show you today – the Glo & Ray Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set. Glo & Ray are a new cosmetics brand to me, I’d never heard of them until now…
‘Glo & Ray made its debut in September 2012 in London. Glo&Ray is intended to present professional and carefree cosmetics for women worldwide. The product range applies to eyes, face, lips and more. The brand name is derived from “Glo”, a gentle luminance; and “Ray”, vibrant beam of light. This is Glo & Ray, elegant, glamorous, unique and professional.’
The Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set includes three La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour lipsticks in Asteria 648 (purple), Honey 647 (pink) and Marigold 644 (red). Honey and Marigold are both available to purchase separately for £12 each but Asteria is exclusive to the Shimmer Shimmer set.
Now I’m going to jump right in and say this – these lipsticks were not what I was expecting. In fact they’re much better. Let me explain… the name of the lipsticks and the set ‘ shimmer shimmer’ implies a shimmery, glittery, frosted-ness to me. But there is none of that in this set. The shades are clean and creamy, and every so slightly on the sheer side, but not what I would personally describe as a ‘shimmer’ finish. Either way, I really REALLY like these lipsticks. They give a beautiful high pigmented finish that’s hydrating and comfortable to wear. There’s no dragging or dryness and lips are left with a stunning pigmented colour and sheen. Marigold is definitely my favourite shade, it’s a bright, striking red-orange that’s perfect for a statement lip!
You can see in the first image that the set comes in a beautiful circular presentation box with a see through top, the packaging looks and feels high quality and would definitely make an excellent christmas gift for a lipstick lover! The lipstick cases also feel of high quality, they have a matte black finish and feel weighty and expensive.
This set gets top marks from me all round! The Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set is £36 from the Glo & Ray site, and I think it’s worth every penny.
I’d love to hear if you’ve heard of Glo & Ray before? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
