Back again with another Love Me Beauty post! Usually beauty posts are reserved for Wednesday but as I missed last Wednesday’s post here’s a double dose of beauty, as promised, to compensate!
If you didn’t catch last months Love Me Beauty post, please go check it out. This is my second bag from Love Me Beauty and is more make up themed than the March Edit.
As mentioned in the previous post, Love Me Beauty is a subscription service where you get to chose what arrives in your bag each month and you get a cute make up bag each month too!
Love me Beauty costs £10 a month, plus £3 delivery. There are promo codes to get 20% off your first box. My code, however, gives you some extra credits to fill up your bag with more goodies!
[MY CODE IS: EMILY1626242]
This months edit was make up focused! This edit contained 22 items – some of which remained from last month’s edit. Products included were Kat Von D eyeliner, liquid lip, Make-up Forever powder and the brand Dr Bragi. This edit excited me as I have been desperate to get my hands on some Kat Von D products! My subscription plan allows for me to have 60 credits to use.
The first two products are from Kat Von D:
KVD TATTOO LINER 0.2ml – 15 Credits
The Editors Notes claim:
You’ll never struggle with liner again. This precision brush tip applicator makes liner so easy, with a bold, colour rich formula for instant drama. Start from the inner corner and work your way outwards for faultless application, every time.
Now, I’ve seen a few people raving about this eyeliner and how rich the pigmentation is and how easy it is to apply, no tugging. Kat Von D’s eyeliner, in Trooper, retails for £16 at 0.55ml.
Throughout my review I may draw comparisons between KVD and the eyeliner I currently use. I currently use No7’s stay precise felt tip eyeliner that retails at £8.00.
Since receiving my bag I’ve played around with the tattoo eyeliner a few times and I’m pretty on the fence about it. Yes the brush tip is flexible so even a novice at winged eyeliner would find application easy. ( well easier. Don’t we all struggle with it?) I can agree, also, that it is rich in pigment but I would like to add that it is patchy. The pigment was rich in certain parts but then appeared more faded in other areas. If I attempted to redraw over the line to darken the line, it started to flake off.
This annoyed me to no end so I topped up the KVD eyeliner with my current No7 one.
As you can see the no7 eye liner is less rich in colour when you compare it to the Kat Von D tattoo liner.
To conclude, I enjoyed the eyeliner and I love the fact that it is miniature, travel friendly sized products are my fave but the flakiness is an issue for me.
The next Kat Von D product I purchased was the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lip in Outlaw 3ml – 20 Credits
The Editors Notes state:
Whether you’re getting ready for a night out, dinner with friends or just know you need your make up to stay in place all day, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is your weapon of choice. Keep it matte or top with a balm or gloss for a stain that will last, unconditionally.
Now this is a claim I can get behind! This liquid lip is amazeballs! It lasts for ages, the colour is pigmented and applies evenly and it’s not sticky.
I definitely want to purchase full sized versions of this product in different colours! KVD liquid lip retails at £17.00.
The third item in my Love Me Beauty Bag is Make-up Forever Ultra HD Loose Powder 1g – 20 Credits
I am not a loose powder type of girl, it tends to appear chalky on my skin and dries me out badly. I tend to opt for compact powders. I’m currently using MUA’s Skin Define Hydro Powder. I have used Rimmel’s loose powder before and I did enjoy that for the time I did use it.
I have so far only used Make up Forever’s powder to bake my under eye area after I’ve applied my all time fave Collection concealer in fair. It’s left my under eye area smooth, creasless but I feel that it slightly oxideses my concealer.
I plan to play around with this powder some more before I make my decision on if I love or hate it.
Once I had finished adding all of the above products to my bag I had only 5 credits left, and only one item on the edit was 5 credits.
Amie purifying facial wash & Matte Finish Moisturiser 2 x 10 ml – 5 Credits
When skin is sensitive or needs a super gentle formula, this duo does the trick! The cleanser was winner of a 2017 Beauty Shortlist ‘Editor’s Choice’ and the brand topped the Best Skincare Brand (20+) winner’s list. High praise indeed – we couldn’t agree more!
Unfortunately I can’t give a true review on either of these miniatures just yet. I haven’t tried either of them as I’m suffering a small break out from trying some a new face mask. Once the break out clears up I’ll test these out for a small period of time and let you guys know how they perform.
Keep your eyes peeled for their review!
Also, if you’ve read this far or if you follow me on social media then you’ll know I have a collab/make-over coming up with NYX on the 26th of this month. ( Special thanks to Abbie who works for NYX for this opportunity.)
Thank you for reading! I hope you can spare your time on Easter Sunday to read my Sunday Book Club post!
