Hey everyone, welcome back to another post!
I hope we’re all doing well 🙂
If you’re an avid ASOS shopping like me then you may have noticed they have launched their very own beauty range. Yes. They are starting to sell their own make up! As I am obsessed with ASOS, I decided to buy a few things from this range and test them out, and see if they have got it right.
As I shop so much on ASOS I got invited to their event which was the launch of this range, but unfortunately, I was unable to make it, so it was only right I bought some bits myself as I wanted to check it out.
So I picked up four things and they were all reasonably priced!
First thing I’m gunna talk about is the ASOS Mascara – Bossy.
This is £8 and come in the cutest packaging. In fact, all of the make-up comes in the cutest packaging. Baby pink base with a cute little eyelash design/logo which is simple but cute (I am a fan!). So this mascara is SUPER black and had a really large silicone wand as you may see from the photo. Although I do like a big wand on a mascara, I like to use it as a thickener and lengthener after I’ve applied a base mascara first that isn’t as thick and chunky. This mascara seriously creates the nicest look, and it almost looks like fake eyelashes (without looking fake if that makes sense). This mascara is also 100% vegitarian!
The only thing I found odd about this mascara is when you go to take it off, the product is so watery so taking off your makeup can prove quite messy (annoyingly). This worries me a little bit because when it rains, you don’t want your mascara running all down your face, but I’m yet to experience this.
Secondly, I picked up the Lip Liner Pencil in Sorted.
So this pencil is £5 which I think is a really good price, and this is a great product. I prefer lip pencils that have a creamy texture as I find these less drying on your lips. Lucky enough, this is exactly the texture of this one. It states it goes on like a dream – and well done ASOS, it really does!!!
Also, I didn’t even realising until reading up on the details, but this pencil has an inbuilt sharpener at the base! genius I tell ya!
I love the colour of this one I picked up as well as its so versatile! This will go with lots of autumnal colours and even more lighter nudes.
Next up I picked up the ASOS Matt Liquid Lipstick in Overqualified.
I loveeeee this so much! If you are a lover of matt lipsticks that last a long time then this is for you!
This is £7, which is think is a good price for this and the colour is gorgeous! Its such a nice autumnal colour, and goes on perfect with the lip liner mentioned above 🙂
ASOS say this matt lipstick has an intense colour (check) with a creamy velvet texture (check) which sets instantly to a matt finish (check).
It really is one of the best liquid lipsticks I’ve tried, the finish is perfect and not too sticky and the wear is long lasting. Most of the time I don’t even have to top this up (only unless It’s a good drinking water day).
Also, this is vegan friendly (which I love).
Lastly, I bought the ASOS Chubby Highlighter stick in Flawed.
So, this was the item I was most excited about, as you may know how much I love highlighters and trying out new ones! This one cost £9.
To be honest, I think I picked up the wrong colour for me as this is more of a bronze colour so doesn’t work great as a highlight, more like a bronzed glow (which isn’t bad at all). But I think I am going to try out a lighter colour to act as a highlight.
So this is a creamy based highlight stick that has a round, ball like shape for easy application, and it blends really well because of it’s creamy base.
Although it is a bronze colour, it has a nice shimmer to it.
Ive found that most brands seem to charge more for highlighters that most there products, which may be why they have charged £9, so I kind of wish I got the right shade I wanted, but it’s still a good item.
There we have my first impressions of ASOS make-up range, and if I’m honest, I am really impressed and I can’t wait to try out more!
Have you tried anything from this range? If not do you want to?
Lots of love
