It’s not every day that I get a box of make-up surrounded by popcorn in the post – yet, that was exactly what happened when I was introduced to Lottie London’s make up collection. I was first exposed to the brand a few years ago, when I tried out a selection of their nail polishes, which are fab by the way, I highly recommend them.
Lottie London, in my eyes have always been quite trendy and edgy, I particularly love their packaging of products, it’s simple, yet sturdy with that cool black and white branding. The full range includes everything from primer, to colour-correcting kits, to highlighters and liquid lipsticks and the best thing about it? Everything is super affordable and such good quality too.
There are two types of foundations in the range, one that is liquid form (Selfie Ready) and the other is stick form (All About That Base). I tried them both on separate occasions and do prefer the liquid one more, for a medium coverage base. I found using the stick foundation was better for touch ups and also for contouring. Speaking of contouring, the Tan Time Powder Bronzer was a personal favourite. The powder is super smooth and buttery and applied like a dream, creating that awesome glow and I also love using it to set my cream contour and add that extra bit of definition. Highlight wise, the Shimmer Squad is all I needed to for that perfect glazed doughnut shine, with it being a quad, gave me more flexibility with mixing shades. And now comes the dreamiest looking highlighter I have ever seen! The Rainbow Highlighter is honestly so, so pretty and a little goes a long way with this one, so I only needed a small touch of it to create my desired look.
Within the eye range, I was lucky to receive two of the twelve piece palettes which I will say now, are incredible and also, so affordable. I have The Nudes and The Smokes – both of which are my kinda colours. The nude/brown shades are great for everyday wear and the smokier colours from the darker palette are perfect for evening outs to achieve that sultry look. An applicator with a sponge end on one side and a brush end on the other are provided in the case, but I do prefer using my trusty No7 Eye Colour Brush from Boots, it’s my favourite eyeshadow brush ever! The cases that house the shades are made of thick plastic, so they’re super sturdy making them strong enough to travel with and the handy clip-shut closure ensures the eyeshadows are protected.
For lips, we all know how much I love liquid lipsticks and if they’re matte, I am all over them like a rash. The Slay All Day Matte Liquid Lipsticks glide on smoothly and the colour pigment is amazing. The Glossip Girl Colour Glosses are equally as good, I prefer laying them on top of the lipstick, for that extra plumpness, but they’re also great alone, for a more, natural, easy look. I didn’t try the green shade at all, not sure if I’m that brave to wear it yet, but I’m sure it looks amazing on those who have the guts to wear it. Either way, the formulas for both the liquid lipsticks and glosses are great and they lasted ages on me. And again, the best thing about them, they’re so affordable and the quality is so good.
