Colour Couture Cosmetics

Colour Couture Cosmetics is a brand that I hadn't heard of until very recently and I am very glad to have discovered them.  They have some fantastic products at amazingly affordable prices but the quality of the products is outstanding.

First up is the Colour Couture BB Perfect Beauty Base.


This is perfect as a primer, it tones down any redness in the skin and has a slight blurring effect on any imperfections and lines.  It is also very moisturising and for those with perfect skin you could wear this without foundation.


As you can see it is not as thick as some BB creams on the market and it is very easy to blend.  It is not just a flat cover up, it actually leaves the skin with a dewy glow and it also has an SPF - 15

The RRP of this product is £5

The Eye Shadow Quad is a product that I have been using every day since receiving it.


As you can see the colours are very neutral, you can use them as a colour wash for a daytime look or really layer them for the ultimate smoky eye.


The shadows are lovely to apply and are very long lasting.  This is my 'go to' palette, I also use the darkest colour wet as an eye liner and it works beautifully.

The RRP is £5

The Complete Look Beauty Palette is an amazing little kit.  When I received it I actually thought I had been sent a book until I opened it.  Inside is everything you need for a lovely natural look, including a 'How To' guide.  The kit contains 4 eye shadows, a blusher brick, bronzer brick, eye liner, mascara and lip glosses.




I'm not usually fan of kits like this as usually there is only one product out of the kit that I will use, I have to say that I use everything in this kit on a regular basis.


The eye shadow colours are the colours that I wear most of the time.  The second colour from the left is the one I use the most, I also use these shadows combined with the shadows from the eye shadow quad.

The blusher and bronzer bricks are my favourite products from this collection.

Now I am a long time fan of a very well known shimmer brick, which I hasten to add is very expensive.  Well let me tell you, I am blown away with the quality of the Colour Couture Bricks.  They have the perfect ratio of colour to shimmer, not a hint of glitter in sight, they are absolutely perfect, the best thing of all is the bricks are available individually for the amazing price of £5

Also contained in this kit is a double ended lip gloss, one peach and one pink and a double ended black mascara and black eye liner.


The lip glosses are very sheer and non sticky, I found that they were a bit too sheer for my liking but they work perfectly over my normal lipstick.  The eye liner has a felt tip pen applicator and is very easy to use for either a thin or a thicker line.  It really impressed me as I find that with most liquid liners that once on the eye lid the colour can creep into eye lid crinkles, there was none of that with this, the liner stayed exactly where it was applied and remained that way until I removed it.  The mascara is a nice every day mascara that is buildable without clumping.

The RRP is £10

Whilst you have been reading through this post have you noticed the absolutely amazing prices?  I cannot believe that these high quality products are available at these prices.  I suggest you get yourselves over to www.ilovecolourcouture.com and have a browse around their website and pick yourselves up a bargain.
