Beauty Addicts Cosmetics Hollywood Glam Makeup ReviewCategory: Primary Menu Product Reviews
I recently received a package from the fine folks at Beauty Addicts Cosmetics to test and try out some of the Hollywood Glam collection – perfect for the holiday season. I was not compensated for this review, just provided some pretty neat makeup products to test and try and then share with my readers. Their Holiday Glam kit starts at $58.00 and they sent me four products to review: a lip gloss, lip stick, mascara and quad eye shadow compact. Their products range in price and the colors are truly beautiful and very pigmented. I also loved their packaging which is clean and modern as well.
What I received in my delivery:
BLACK EYESHADOW QUAD
Using SolutionEYES eye shadows in Seduce apply the light grey shadow over the lids. Then apply the deeper grey shadow to the eyelid to create desired depth. Work the color upwards, packing the shadow into the base color as you move upward towards the crease. The two shades should blend together well so the application is seamless. For a professional finish blend efforlessEYES Liner in Seduce slightly higher above and below the lash line, creating a smoky effect. For an extra defined look, line the inner rim of the upper and lower lashes with the same liner. Follow with two coats of ShowOFF Mascara to lengthen and thicken lashes.
SHOW OFF MASCARA
Intense, dramatic lashes with one easy stroke! This unique formula offers volume, length and curl with Argan Oil to condition and protect. The curved brush hugs the natural eye shape to coat every lash while fanning and feathering. No clumps, no flakes, no smudges! Comes off effortlessly with a gentle cleanser.
SOULUTION EYES EYESHADOW
Our unique eye shadow quads offer four blendable shades formulated in finishes that range from sheer matte to subtle shimmer – all designed to mix flawlessly for a goof-proof application.
BEAUTIFULL LIPS LIPSTICK
Rich, creamy color infused with intense hydration. Formulated with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and other natural ingredients, this formula also plumps with natural peptides and stimulates collagen for a firmer, smoother more voluptuous lip.
LIP ADDICTION LIP GLOSS
Your lips won't be able to get enough of this creamy, high-shine gloss that provides full coverage with natural peptides to plump and nourish.
Here are two swatches – the bottom line is the lipstick in the color Femme Fatale and the top is the lip gloss in the color Hollywood. Both are very pigmented and are great for a sultry, red lip look. I will recommend making sure your lips are moisturized and free of dry patches before you attempt to wear red lipstick, otherwise it can look not so good. Normally I don’t do a smokey eye, it tends to wash out my entire face, and as someone who has pale skin, blue eyes and dark hair I can quickly look like a porcelain doll if I over do it on either the eyes or the lips. It’s important when doing makeup, especially such a bold look, to pick ONE feature to focus on. If you want to play up the eyes, then keep your cheeks and lips pretty natural. If you want to play up a bright red lip, then keep your eyes simple, maybe some liner and mascara but not a ton of eye shadow. It is all about the balance, and for those of you who know and follow me, I don’t tend to do very heavy makeup at all.
