Have you ever looked at all the amazing Beauty Trends on Instagram , from a cut crease to metallic lips, and failed terribly when you’ve had a try yourself. Yes, me too. Doesn’t matter how many tutorials I watch, it’s just never going to happen.
Well now you don’t have to as HAX have introduced a range of easy to use makeup kits to help you out. They’ve recently launched their products on ASOS and prices vary between £14.99 to £19.99, which is not bad considering each kit contains everything you need to recreate the look. There are 5 Instagram worthy looks to choose from: Cut Crease, Glitter Cut Crease, Rose Gold Lip Kit, Holographic Lip Kit and a Glitter Lip Kit. HAX really have got you covered.
When I was asked if I’d like to try one out and let you know all about them I jumped at the chance and it would come as no surprise that I went for the Rose Gold Glitter Lip Kit*. This would be perfect for an evening out or the festival season.
The Rose Gold Glitter Lip Kit contains a lip liner, liquid lipstick, pot of glitter and an application brush. Not only does the lip kit include all the tools you need for an Instagram worthy pout but there’s also a handy step by step guide and everything comes neatly wrapped in a cute little black box.
I was due to meet up with some friends that evening and saw it as the perfect opportunity to try the out the look. I usually test products at home first, but hey if this went well I wasn’t going to waste a single drop.
The first step was to apply the lip liner, so I couldn’t really go wrong there. It’s a beautiful nude shade that will go with lip products I already own. The soft, creamy pencil doesn’t drag the delicate skin, yet still creates a perfect line around the shape of the mouth.
Next up, it’s the liquid lipstick which is the most gorgeous rosy pink shade, not too matte, not too shiny. I’d quite happily wear this colour on it’s own during the day. I love the neat little sponge applicator which made it easy to apply the colour, some wands I’ve used are so long they bend all over the place. The liquid lipstick sat comfortably on my lips, not in least bit drying. I absolutely love the colour and it made the perfect shade for the overall look.
Then while the lip colour is still wet you dip the blending brush into the pot of glitter and gently apply a thin layer to the inside of the lips. There’s no need to worry about having enough time to get the glitter on before the lip paint dried, I was trying to make notes and take photos in between, yet the lip colour was still wet enough. The glitter was a gorgeous gold shade and looked amazing over the top of the rosy pink liquid lipstick, creating a beautiful shimmery effect.
Overall, I love the HAX Rose Gold Glitter Lip Kit and it’s definitely a look I’d wear again. It was the perfect shade for my hair and skin tone. The shimmery effect made a wonderful change to my usual look, but wasn’t so different that I felt uncomfortable while wearing it. The creamy consistency felt lovely on my lips and it lasted through a few glasses of wine, a coffee and an evening meal. This kit costs £14.99, which is a great price considering you’d pay that for some lip liners alone.
If rose gold isn’t your thing, then why not check out the other HAX Makeup Kits on ASOS. I really love the look of the Holographic Lip Kit but don’t think I’ve got the confidence to wear it.
