*I was sent 3 products from LOVE Organic Beauty. All opinions are my own*
I must confess that when it comes to putting on a face…I am still very much ‘faking it till I make it’. I have no freaking idea what I am doing 90% of the time, despite loving the effects when I make an effort. Sometimes it feels like some women are born with the gene that allows them to put make up on effortlessly, looking a million bucks and there are people like me…
Up until recently (I am talking last week) I couldn’t put eye liner on. I would either stab myself in the eye and it would water so much that I would ruin any work I had already done. Or it would be so far off the ‘eye line’ that it looked like I had let Mr 4 loose on my face. It wasn’t until I watched a Youtube video last week that showed a woman doing a tutorial on a look that I knew how to do it properly.
So I was really stepping outside my comfort zone (something that my psychologist said I need to do more of) when I answered a callout by LOVE Organic Beauty to road test some of their products. LOVE Organic Beauty had first followed me on Pinterest a few months ago and I had checked out their products a few times since. Even though I have no idea when it comes to creating a face, I definitely appreciate looking at the faces others create so the LOVE Organic Beauty Pinterest boards ticked all of the boxes for the beauty p0rn.
I was sent a lipstick, concealer and eye liner pencil to test out. LOVE Organic Beauty stocks the brand Couleur Caramel Natural Make up which prides itself on using plant based materials that are sourced organically. Even the packaging is made from recycled products, which gives it a unique look and feel.
I have only ever used concealer in stick form so the concealer in a pot was a new experience for me. It didn’t disappoint though, the cream was smooth and glided onto my skin effortlessly. It also blended beautifully and didn’t feel heavy on the skin. The product gave enough coverage without being heavy so that I was able to wear it all day and then transition it to night time.
The eyeliner took a few strokes before it started to work on my lower eyelid but it then worked brilliantly. The recycled packaging actually make the pencil easier to grip when applying it, which was a big bonus.
Lipstick is the make up product that I use the most. I will often just wear it on it’s own without going to the trouble of putting on a whole face. The product that I received from LOVE Organic Beauty was Rosy Brown Pearly Lipstick. My lips have been ridiculously dry this winter and I have yet to find a lipstick that both looks good and helps to keep my lips from drying out. This lipstick did both, although the staying power wasn’t great but it’s easy enough to reapply. Another issue that I had with the lipstick was that the only way to tell what colour it was is a number on the bottom. It doesn’t have the name of the lipstick, which is fine when you only have one of the LOVE Organic Beauty products but makes it hard when you start to fill your beauty bag with them.
This week I must confess is being hosted by Emily from Have a Laugh on Me while Kirsty is busy moving.
Are you a bit of a beauty beginner like me or are you an old hand at it?
