Ok, so we talked a bit about 'Beauty with Heart' movement by The Body Shop the other day, and now it's time to inspect the Lily Cole Cruelty-Free Make-Up range a little closely.
This comprises of two shades of Lip & Cheek Domes, a Face Illuminator, a Violet Liquid Eyeliner and four new shades for their Shimmer Cubes.
|Lip & Cheek Dome in 'Pinch Me Pink' - RRP: €15|
Please excuse my missbehaving chapped lips :(
This has quite a mousse-y consistency to me, feels very soft and velvety and the pay-off is quite sheer, but nonetheless buildable. This particular shade (there is also a coral shade available in the collection) reminds me of Benefit 'Posietint', it's a very pretty soft pink that's both suitable for cheeks and lips. I actually prefer using this on my lips for a delicate wash of pink effect.
|Shimmer Cubes No. 24 - RRP: € 24.95|
The Shimmer Cubes are at the same fantastic value, you get a lot of product for the price, and the pigmentation of these is of course very good. The shades within are really complimentary of each other and work beautifully together, as seen below :).
Onto the liquid eyeliner, this is without a doubt the most gorgeous shade of violet ever. However, there is an issue with this one...it is too darn watery in my opinion, and two layers are definitely required for optimum results. Priced at €13.95, I would still personally purchase this despite the very runny formula, just because the shade is so very suitable for my eye colour, if you have green eyes, this shade would be fantastic on you.
|Liquid Eyeliner, RRP: € 13.95|
|Such a stunning colour!|
