I recently saw a YouTube video surrounding the new Find Beauty range from Amazon. It did look lovely and I was interested in giving it a go.
I decided to play it safe or the first order and purchase something that would be safe to wear. If you have been reading my blogs previously you will know that I have quite sensitive skin. I went for the lip duo in shade ‘Sparkle Secret’. This included the lipstick in shade no.01 and lipgloss in shade no.07. The lipstick is first and then followed with the gloss to give a dewy and glowing look.
If a brand hasn’t tried very hard with their packaging then it can put me off the product. I thought it was really great that Amazon didn’t not over package these products. It shows that the brand are thinking about the environment. So it was really good when the products arrived in just a small silver bubble envelope. When I first pulled the products out I was surprised as the design is quite chic. It’s a black design with a white brush stroke across the lid to give it a bit of an edge. Looking good so far Amazon!
Upon applying for the first time I was pleasantly surprised. The colour was very pigmented, felt smooth on the lip and it had an almost velvety consistency to it. The lipstick is matt and for me that was perfect because I have never really been a fan of the glossy lip. I followed it with the gloss, which I was a bit dubious about. I have found that glosses can remain sticky and difficult to wear. However, a few seconds after putting it on I found it was dry and just left the colour in place. It created a gorgeous glitter overlay to give it a bit of a sparkle. I would not apply the glitter during the day as it may be a bit over the top. But it does allow the colour to go from day to night with minimal effort.
I decided to have the first application during work where I was going to be on the go and spending a lot of time in meetings. I thought this would be the best test of the colours staying power. Once again, I was not disappointed, the colour stayed put throughout the day. My lips did not feel like they were drying out which I find can happen a lot with the matte lipsticks. The only flaw was that the glitter coat wore off and I needed to reapply the gloss. I think that is an easy fix with some clear gloss or make up spray over the top.
Overall, Find Beauty is a brand that I will be purchasing again. I will definitely be trying out some of the facial products to see if they have the same positives as the lip due. I’m actually thinking that I might go for the contour kit next. The products seem to be well made and have the standards that I would expect from a luxury brand. Amazon you did a good job…well done!
