It's the month of love and even though Valentine's Day is over, you can still feel the love in the air, in the shops and of course on social media. I love Valentines month because it’s that time of year where you can wear red from head to toe and no-one looks at you funny (which is great because red is everyone’s colour, no matter your skin tone!) L.O.V Cosmetics has beautiful, romantic packaging and it's a great brand for a makeup newbie or makeup lovers on a budget.
Cosmetics brand, L.O.V recently sent me a lovely romantic gift that included the “LOViconyx” Eyeshadow & Contouring palette 800, “Lash Affair” mascara and “LOVinity” Long Lasting Nail Lacquer.
Most people prefer less makeup and a more natural look (I’m very honest about the fact that I love makeup and I layer it on even if I’m just going to Pick&Pay for milk - that’s just me, most of my friends get that now) but whether you like a full-on glam look or just something simple and effective, the Eyeshadow&Contouring” palette is a go-to. Priced at R299,95 and beautifully packaged with a lovely design inside, it’s affordable and compact with all the shades you need to create a beautiful eye. It has a beautiful shimmer to it, perfect for summer but if you want to be more dramatic, you can always make it more smoky with the darker shades. This is a palette I use daily (even if it’s just the lighter colour above my brow bone, but I definitely recommend this for makeup lovers on a budget.
Here are some swatches to show the shades and pigment:
Swatches with Flash:
I loved the shade of red (No 140 Scarlet Sunset) from the "LOVinity" Long Lasting Nail Lacquer (R105,00) but I must admit, I found it to last no longer than 2 days before it started to chip so this would be a great polish for a special night out or a last minute date.
The "Lash Affair" Mascara (R215,00) works as well as any mascara I've tried. I'm a false lash kinda girl (because I don't have naturally long lashes) and I use this mascara to lift the lashes before applying falsies and it works just fine for that purpose!
