During the March Central Florida Beauty Blogger meetup I received some Luxx Cosmetics products to try out. I received a mascara, a gloss and an eye shadow.
$12.50 lip gloss
The mascara didn’t really work for me. To be fair, my allergies have been really bad, so it was a combination of my eyes watering like crazy and the formula just not working on my lashes.
The liquid lips gloss truly comes alive on your lips. It looks awesome. Looking at it in the tube I was like oh, another red gloss. But once you put it on, it really transforms and it is awesome.
Delight has a really nice eyeshadow texture. The color is very close to neutral for me. It’s got a bronze brown base with a light golden champagne sheen, making it perfect for daytime wear.
My color descriptions:
Delight – bronze base with light golden sheen
Squeeze – coral-red with golden pink sheen
While the mascara didn’t work for me, it definitely may work for someone else.
The eye shadow was nice and had a silky texture. I think the color Delight is one of those universally flattering shades that most people will love. It may not be a bright, but it’s a versatile neutral.
The gloss, in my opinion, is the best of the three and my favorite. The color is awesome. I think it’s one that could work year round, depending on what liner you used under your lips. On its own, it’s perfect for spring. Under a red liner, it would be perfect for winter. It would be interesting to see it under an orange for summer. For fall I’d reach for a burgundy or grape.
Would I purchase?
While I’d skip on the mascara because of my eye sensitivities, I would definitely pick up another gloss and eyeshadow.
Have you heard of Luxx cosmetics? What do you think of Delight and Squeeze?
Products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.
Are you planning a post on this look? It’s beautiful! Dramatic, smokey, colorful – everything! Must see what products you’re wearing!
Hi Jean, I posted this look a few weeks ago
I haven’t heard of this company before. That gloss is very flattering on you.
I LOVE LOVE that look on you!!
