At the beginning of every new season, L.O.V. Cosmetics releases some amazing makeup items that are perfect if you like to be on the trendy side regarding makeup. I rarely have time to go to the store and properly take a look at everything they have to offer, so I feel very lucky to have been able to test these lovely products. The holographic trend is very hot right now and to be completely honest, I love that there are some edgy makeup products we can incorporate into our makeup routine without anyone judging!
I was most intrigued by their Aura Glow Primer. It comes in a sleek pink bottle which is already a treat to look at, but I’m even more impressed with how well it performs on my skin! Its peachy undertone and tiny shimmer create a perfect glow, not too excessive, but just enough to make your face slightly brighter. I won’t say my makeup lasts any longer, because I’ve already tested several primers and I don’t see any difference in the wear-time. But this one preps my skin very nicely, I love it! Next I received the Brow Lights pomade that has two separate compartments. The first one contains a pomade while the second actually consists of an oil-based highlighter. I apply the pomade with a small brow brush, which gives a very nice, natural finish. Then I add a tiny bit of highlighter under my brows for some glow.
As for the cheeks, they sent me two exciting products. As already mentioned above, holographic effect is insanely popular at the moment and although you can quickly add too much, you cannot go wrong with this palette. I’m talking about the LOVillusion holographic highlighter palette for eyes, face and body combining three different shades, i.e. with pink, purple and green undertone. I mostly use it as a highlighter on my cheeks, on the inner corners of my eyes and under my brow bone. The pink one is also very similar to the Cindy-Lou Manizer by the Balm (my sister has one and instantly asked me if I bought that, too!). Well, don’t be scared, you can mix all three shades for that unforgettable iridescent look! The next cheeky product is the BLUSH Liaison, a dewy gel blush stick. Mine is in shade Alluring Peach and though I like the lovely flush of color on my cheeks, I don’t think the brush you get on the other side does any good. It completely messed up my foundation the first time so I’m applying it with the beautyblender ever since (and it works like a charm!).
Last but not least, I got to test out one of their new lippies as well. I received a neutral LIPaffaire Color & Care lipstick in shade Angelina’s belief. This is the first really nudy-brown shade I have in my collection and it goes surprisingly well with my style. The texture is very moisturizing and nourishing, but nevertheless stays on my lips for a pretty decent period of time.
All in all, I’m really impressed with their new products and I really think this brand has become a real competition to the other drugstore brands. I have yet to try their foundations, if you already have some experience with them, please let me know! :)
