SUNKISSED COSMETICS?!



Sunkissed Moroccan Escape Ombre Lips - Link here.

A few weeks back I woke up with an inbox full of blogger mail and an exciting message from Sunkissed Cosmetics. Honestly, I wasn't even aware of the amount of beauty products they actually stocked, I only recognised the bronzer and false tan (which is my favourite false tan ever now, I'm a Sunkissed convert). Anyway, I was asked if there was any products I'd like to try and being the lip fanatic I am I chose this set from the new Moroccan Escape range. It's actually an ombrè lip kit, but I didn't choose it for that purpose, I just loved the range of colours it had as I always go for pinks and reds. That's not to say that I didn't try the ombrè look though, but my makeup skills aren't exactly the best and even though there's a handy step-by-step I just looked like I'd been eating something and slopped my lippy everywhere, lol my bad.

Anywhoo, I've been simultaneously wearing these colours non-stop since I received the kit, I genuinely love them! The lighter pink is perfect for a during the day subtle look it reminds me of Mac Pink Plaid, the deep red is a gorgeous shade for fall and the other pink is the perfect bright shade for jazzing things up at night. Slightly annoying that these colours don't have names but never mind, I guess you'll understand which colours are which by the photographs.

I'm not a gloss person, I never have been, I don't like the texture and since I always wear my hair down due to the fact I have a giant head it doesn't really work in my favour, the minute there's a slight breeze my hairs covered in goo. Since I never buy or try them, I've never actually seen myself wearing gloss in a long time and I surprisingly love it. I think I'm a little bit of a gloss covert after trying this kit - the two shades are both fairly similar pinky nudes but I will definitely be wearing these again.

La look 1. Bright Pink


La Look 2. Deep Red

La Look 3. Light Pink

La Look 4. Gloss


Sorry about the lighting in these photos, every time I try and take face pictures they end up so out of theme they barely ever make the cut! Anyway, Voila! For an incredibly affordable price of £8.50 (that's £1.70 per item!) I'm impressed. The longevity is great, doesn't completely come away when you're eating and I love the shape of the crayons - it makes it super easy to apply. The only thing I would say is that they are quite fragrant and I know this isn't to everyone's taste. On first impressions, I was quite hungover when I opened the package and they smell a lot like Sambuca/Liquorice - which wasn't great.

However, I've leaned towards these products more than my beloved Mac lipsticks and that's saying a lot coming from me. You can view more of the Moroccan range via this link here and I'd definitely recommend you doing so as I know I will be. I love discovering new brands that are affordable yet equally as good. I've been trying out the false tan too so expect a review on that soon, thanks for reading as usual! J x
