The bug for trying new makeup has officially taken over. I can feel a deep urge to try more brands purely from the utter joy I’ve found discovering new products that actually work better on my skin. When it comes to new brands, I’m all for promoting them if they prove to be a contender in what already seems to be a saturated beauty market.
Lisa Blur is a new brand that connects together luxury and practicality and this really shines through with the two products I was sent. Of course I’m a bit of a brown fiend when it comes to eyeshadows. I admit that I try and change it up when I can but I always come back to browns. I can’t help it!
I picked out Turkish from a insane collection of eyeshadows. Unfortunately, after only a few uses, this little pan crumbled into a mess. I think it’s probably more my fault with being too heavy handed with things in general but I’m a bit saddened to see it like this nonetheless.
However, I’m not going to let that stop me from using it (where’s the rubbing alcohol at?!). The individual pan is the perfect size for fitting into a makeup bag. For ages now I’ve been using palettes and you forget how handy it is to just have individual pans as they are so much easier to carry around.
The eyeshadow itself is a gorgeous shimmery brown. It looks dark in the pan but goes on lighter on the eyelid. For me, this was a bit of a disappointment because I had to add more on to get the effect I wanted. The eyeshadow is very easily blendable though which is a positive and the shimmer is great for giving a casual brown shade, a bit of a kick.
For £12.50, I would say that the quality is a little average compared to what I’ve used in the past. The shimmer is beautiful though and once I reassemble the eyeshadow back to it’s original form, I’m sure I’ll use it again.
I’m a big fan of the lipsticks and I opted for Plum Down because it looked pretty fierce on the website. The reality of the colour though was initially disappointment but I actually liked the shade once I applied it onto my lips. On the site it definitely looks like a bold red lip but it’s actually more of a plum colour (go figure, Natalie). It definitely is a bold colour but it’s not as poppy as I thought it would be which I’m actually happy about.
The quality though is clearly there. It’s mattifying which I love and the quality in this lipstick is definitely worth the £15.00. It’s a lipstick that could definitely rival the budget store alternatives and even the high-end brands.
Be sure to check out their range here. They also have some handy guides for newbies to the beauty game which are definitely worth checking out.
