It seems I’m on a bit of a mini roll when it comes to beauty as I was asked by Lisa Blur to review a few products from their range. Although I’m certainly no beauty blogger, I thought why not?! Afterall, us mums deserve to be treated too!!
I was sent the Matt Finish Eyeshadow in “Berlin” and their Xtreme lipstick in “Whirly Girl”. I specifically chose more neutral colours as I want something I can use day to day in an effort to wear more make up and cover up the bags which seem to be gaining additional bags under my eyes!!
First impressions were great, I love the branding and clean look of the product. It felt like a quality brand and I was excited to have a little play and find out what I thought.
According to the website, Lisa Blur was “created by and for people with a passion for makeup”. They are proud of what they create and state that their products are “hypoallergenic, easy to apply and long-lasting”.
I feel that this pride is well placed. I had never heard of the Lisa Blur brand before but I am glad that I do now. The eyeshadow had a great cover and was a beautiful natural colour. Exactly what I wanted as it works great day to day for a fresh faced look, or works as a foundation on which to build a heavier made up look on for those nights out. As a mum of 2 though I’ve forgotten what they are!
As for the lipstick, I do tend to go for lippy over gloss as I have children who love to launch themselves at my face on a daily basis. Plus I hate the sticky feeling you get with gloss and getting my hair stuck on my lips just drives me bonkers! So lipstick it is.
This one was a good one. Again I purposefully chose a neutral colour as when I make an effort I tend to go for pink but wanted something a little more subtle. This shade fit the bill as not only did it add a hint of colour, it seemed to be long lasting and did not dry out my lips.
The Matt Finish Eyeshadow retails at £12.50 and their Xtreme lipstick retails at £15. Both are available on their website.
Overall, I would definately recommend the brand if you are looking to try something new. My experience has been that the price is reasonable and the quality is good.
