For those of you who love pretty makeup packaging that are cruelty-free and affordable, I’m sure you would love 2nd Love Cosmetics as much as I do! They have a wide range of makeup/beauty products from lipsticks to foundations to eye products to nail polishes to makeup kits & so much more that are good for all skin types. This brand is based in L.A. California that has a great line with their own signature style.
I’m intrigued with their great quality makeup and would love to share about these following products in this review from this brand:
Everlast Matte Lip Gloss in [Aria shade]
Baked Bronzer in [02 Warmth shade]
Eyebrow Gel in [Soft Brown shade]
Prismatic Color Eyeliner in [Gold shade] ~ a new product
Mineral Blusher Stick in [02 Coral shade]
Luxe Lace Lipstick in [10 Pamper shade]
This Everlast Matte Lip Gloss [Aria shade] is one of their newest product. When I first saw this color, it was just the way I like it, bold and bright hot pink color. I’m a big fan of pop of colors and if you do too, I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do! My lips get really dry sometimes, so I really love how this lip gloss keeps my lips not so dry and its very creamy. I use this lip gloss alone. I would recommend to layer it on top of one of your favorite lipstick colors if you want that extra shine to it.
One of my favorites of theirs is the Baked Bronzer [02 Warmth] shade. I really love the combination of shades. The powder is really soft, slightly metallic. I’ve used a lot of bronzers in the past that I think is over powdery, but this one is not, which is wonderful. I’ve also done something different with this bronzer as I’ve tried using this as an eyeshadow too. It can be perfect for your eyes and give off a natural eyeshadow look as the shades of colors to this disc are a great combo. Mixing the colors altogether give off a light bronze pink glow to it.
These are 2 other bronzer shades that are available as well:
[Dark shade] [Light shade]
I’m so impressed with their eyebrow gel. I have the soft brown shade. Especially love that it is waterproof and smudge proof too. The gel formula is easy to use and apply. It glides onto your eyebrows really smoothly and gives off a great color and shape. The gel drys on fairly quickly. You can use it to sculpt and lengthen your brows to get that perfect eyebrow look. Best part is that it does lasts all day!
Another new product of theirs that I really enjoy is their Prismatic Color Eyeliner. This color is the Gold shade that I have. Really love that it glides on great on my eyes and the pop of color to it is beautiful. I love this eyeliner so much that I am considering buying another color of theirs. They have 5 other colors available, including blue, silver, grey, purple and brown.
At first sight, I didn’t think I would like the Mineral Blusher Stick because I’m not usually a fan of blushes that are creamy in texture as I often use powered-type blushes, which I feel would be easier to apply on my face. After trying this blusher stick out, to my surprise I find myself liking it afterall. It glides on really smooth to your face and I really like how the stick itself rolls up. This shade of color that I have is the Coral shade which really fits my skin tone. I would suggest when you apply this product to apply just a little bit of it onto your cheeks and blend it in a circular motion. In my opinion, I believe this product would be best during the winter season as I think a creamy type texture for a blush would stay on better and during the summer seasons, for example, my skin gets really oily during the summers so I would prefer to use a blush thats more powdered-like.
Isn’t this Luxe Lace Lipstick beautiful!? I’m a sucker for this gorgeous lipstick bottle packaging, such a unique and pretty container. This lipstick collection is available in 12 different shades. This shade I have in particular is the #10 – Pamper color. According to 2nd Love Cosmetics, this lipstick is formulated with vitamin E and jojoba to hydrate lips. This shade I have applies on really pigmented, rich in color and really creamy in texture. This is one of my favorite products of theirs that I really consider on purchasing their full line of this Luxe Lace collection.
These are some of my favorite other shades of this Luxe Lace Collection Lipsticks that are also available:
[Posh-Peach Beige] [Fancy That-Dark Pink] [Sassy-Coral Pink]
Overall, I really love this brand. I’ve been using their makeup line for the past week and really like how their makeup lasts all-day and the products itself are great in quality. This brand is affordable and even cheaper than a lot of other makeup brands at drug stores. Some people may think the cheaper the makeup product is, the less of a good quality it is, but not for this brand! I enjoy and love their products and will continue to keep this brand on my list of go-to makeup products to purchase!
