Lately there’s been a lot of buzz about Loren Ridinger & LaLa’s new makeup line Motives Cosmetics. I was afraid to jump on the bandwagon to try her line, but as a blogger, I owe every product a fair chance. If you follow me on Instagram you saw the massive package I was sent and I have to say I was overwhelmed. As I unpacked the makeup, all I could think of is I couldn’t wait to plan a giveaway to share with you all! It’s going to take a little bit for me to review everything so let’s delve into it.
When I first receive a product, I dive right in with my fingers for swatch test. I was pleasantly surprised by the texture and color pay off of the eyeshadows. They are highly pigmented and much more smooth than I expected. I didn’t predict that they were going to be so easy to blend and pack such a punch.
Today I did a quick natural look and the picture above is after 11 hours of wear! I applied my makeup at 8 a.m. and took this picture around 7:30 p.m. (I primed my eyelid with Mac’s Soft Ochre Paint Pot).
The colors I used were:
Whipped Cream (Inner Corner)
Onyx (Outter Crease)
As for lashes, I used #110. This shape is similar to the coveted Ardell Demi Wispies except for lighter on the eyes (I didn’t think that was possible!).
I honestly forgot I was wearing false lashes today and usually after a few hours my eyes start to get tired. However, the band isn’t very thick so you have to be careful removing them so you don’t alter the shape.
Overall, Motive Cosmetics has my attention. Maybe all the hype lately is for a reason. Have you tried Motives? Let me know your thoughts and stay beautiful!
