For the first time ever, I’m actually pretty excited about Halloween this year. The reasons for this being, I have a very lovely Baby J who looks extra cute in a little Halloween outfit (it has a pumpkin on it). Secondly, I’m going to a very exciting Halloween party in London this coming week. Finally, I absolutely love seeing all the amazing Halloween themed makeup looks going around the internet at the moment! I have already experimented with a few Halloween products from Makeup Revolution (read about those here) but these have just been the gory ones. I wanted to try something a bit less scary and a bit more pretty – that’s why I picked up this unicorn themed lip kit!
I already own one of the Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kits in the shade Echelon and I absolutely love the quality of the lip pencils. I was excited to see that the pencil in this kit was nothing like I already own. I was very surprised by the swatches to see that the purple pencil also has a gold reflect to it. It is absolutely beautiful! The gloss which goes on top has micro glitter in it and is also very pretty. Both products could be worn alone.
But combined they create an even more beautiful look!
Now, I’m really not the biggest fan of lip glosses, in fact I find them gloopy and extremely annoying when my hair gets stuck to them and then smears across my face. However, I didn’t feel any of this with the gloss in this kit. It isn’t gloopy at all and it felt very comfortable to wear. I also liked the finish of it as it wasn’t so wet looking that I looked like I was dribbling.
This will look stunning as part of a unicorn Halloween look, but I’m also thinking it would look cool on a mermaid one too (something I’m going to be having a go at over the next week – keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram).
