Smooch Cosmetics

Smooch Cosmetics has been doing the blog rounds lately and however cheeky the name might sound, it surely is a  pretty decent line of cosmetics, with some fun and funky colours and NARS inspired packaging, at almost a fraction of the price of it!

Sounds tempting for sure isn't it?

I have a Blusher(£8.50) in Sweet Cheeks from them and an Eyeshadow duo(£9.50) in Filthy Rich from their range. The packaging also feels like NARS quite a bit, very good quality, compact and sturdy.

This Blusher in Sweet Cheeks is a unique shade of pink as its light and bright at the same time. Think MAC Well Dressed but amplified.

It contains finely milled shimmer particles which somehow give a 3-d like effect, making the cheekbones pop out much more. I really thought this was pretty similar to Benefit's Bella Bamba texture wise.

If you've always lusted for those bright Kim Kardashian cheekbones, this should be right up your street.

The Eye shadow Duo in Filthy Rich is a gorgeous champagne-bronze combination for when you want to avoid a boring neutral eye.

I really hoped the deeper colour would not lean towards the coppery side and I am glad its just a soft warm bronze, that is easily wearable without having a swollen-eye effect.

Both the shades are nicely pigmented and are almost creamy to touch and apply. They are slightly crumbly due to their overtly creamy texture and its best to apply with fingers or a very flat top brush.

Here's a little demo as to how the colours transfer onto the lids. 

Pretty decent no?

I haven't been a huge fan of NARS eye shadows to be honest but have heard about their great quality and pigmentation in the blogosphere quite a bit. These are surely a great dupe for those and you also have a lovely range of beautiful colour combinations to choose from.

Till 16th September to celebrate their launch, they have 50% off all their products meaning the Blusher would  retail for £4.25 and the Eye shadow duos at £4.75.
