I couldn’t contain my excitement when I heard BooHoo had launched their own makeup collection and I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself. Scrolling through the website I came across so many gorgeous products from other brands including W7 and Technic, but I decided to pick up a few items from BooHoo’s own cosmetics range and put them to the test.
The BooHoo makeup includes eyeshadow palettes, liquid lipsticks and lip kits, a setting spray, primers and highlighter palettes. They also have a set of four rosegold oval makeup brushes and a set of two beauty blending sponges! Here’s what I bought and my first impressions.
The first product I tried from my BooHoo makeup haul was the Illuminating Primer. This is quite a thin liquid, it applied well and was easy to blend, giving my complexion a healthy dewy glow. The primer felt really comfortable to wear over the drier areas of my skin but sadly it accentuated the large pores around my nose area.
The Highlight Palette is simply gorgeous, it’s set in rose gold packaging and at only £6 you’re getting a real bargain. The powders are incredibly soft and blend beautifully, the shade on the right has to be my absolute favourite. The glow that came off this little beauty matched a couple of my more expensive highlighting palettes!
I’m still very much in love with liquid lipsticks, especially in a good nude as they go with everything, for any occassion. I chose a pack of three liquid lipsticks from BooHoo which included a nude, pale pink and darker pink. Unfortunately the packs don’t have a shade written on them, but I really loved the raspberry pink colour. The liquid lipsticks applied really nicely with an easy to use applicator, the colour dried quite quickly into a stunning matte finish. It lasted pretty well, just not quite as long as I’d hoped but for £8 you’re getting three liquid lipsticks so I won’t complain.
The lip kit I chose was in the shade Pink. The liner applied really nicely without dragging my skin but the lip shade did feel a bit sticky and took a few coats to build up any colour. I’m going to keep this one in my bag for emergencies. at £4 it doesn’t matter too much if I lose it after one too many glasses of wine on a night out!
The BooHoo Makeup Collection has a choice of three eyeshadow palettes, Smokey, Bronze/Nude and Colourpop and these have to be my favourite products from the whole range, I have the Colourpop palette with a mix of pinks, purples and nudes eyeshadows, perfect for any time of day, the bottom 4 shades are absolutely stunning! The powder is so soft, the shades have a high pigment and they’re easy to blend. The eyeshadow palettes cost £10 and with eight shades you do get a lot for your money.
Overall I think the Boohoo cosmetics range is a good budget brand if you’re just starting out in makeup or you don’t really want to spend a lot of money out on products. The range is also cruelty free.
I’ve also recently made a shopping trip to pick up some new clothes for Autumn and if you’d like to see what I bought then I’ll leave the link here.
