Product Review: Beauté Cosmetics Lolita SetMonday, July 18, 2011
If you have listened to me rant, either in person or on Twitter, you would probably have noticed that I have a little bit of an obsession with Beauté Cosmetics. Beau Nelson, founder of the brand, is Kristen Stewart's makeup artist, and has produced many an enviable look on the starlet - pictures of which I have stalked endlessly and tried again and again to reproduce. Let's not talk about whether or not I actually managed to reproduce them.
So anyway, I'd been eyeing the Lolita set for quite some time, and when I got a little extra cash at the end of the month, I thought I'd splurge a little.
About 2 and a half weeks later, I finally received the little, gorgeous package! The Lolita set contains the Fluoron Liqui-gel stain, and the Girlie Show Luminous Volume Gloss.
I was literally shaking as I pulled the ribbon apart and opened the box!
The packaging is so heavy and luxe, and the product itself performs so beautifully! I'll let the photos do the talking:
In my previous haul post, I showed you these swatches. I also have the swatches on my lip for you today:
Here's a picture of me wearing both the gloss and the stain, so you can get a better look at the overall effect:
Overall, I really like the colour and effect of these products. I would love to try more from the Beauté range. I should mention that the scent in the products might be a problem to some people who are sensitive to fragranced lip products. I am pretty sensitive to fruit-scented lip products in particular, and am deathly allergic (I may be exaggerating a little) to Dior lipglosses. I think I may have had a little reaction to these as well, but I'm not quite sure because I just wore them on an outing on Friday night and again on Saturday morning, but am not experiencing the same irritations as I experienced the first time I tried them on. It may have been another product :/
