You all know I have a deep love for the site ASOS. Whenever I am in need of a pick me up treat or looking for something to wear it is the first place I go. Over the years, I discovered they also sold beauty but never delved too deep into the beauty pages until I discovered ASOS Beauty – the beauty designed exclusively by ASOS for ASOS. As prices started from £5, I knew I had to give it a go.
I picked up three things from the brand. An eyeshadow palette, a matte lipstick and the Bossy Mascara and If you watched this weeks video, you will know from my first impressions things are little hit and miss.
First of all, the eyeshadow palette. I was originally unimpressed with the size of the palette as I was hoping it would be bigger but that is my fault as maybe I was expecting too much. Devoted is a natural palette which includes one shimmer shade, while the rest are matte. As far as matte shadows go, this is a good batch, The shadows are pigmented, there is a little bit of fall out in the pan but they do blend well. For £12, it is pretty steep for what you can get however the coral shade makes it worth it.
The mascara, on the other hand, is a winner if you like a good subtle daytime mascara. Bossy lengthens your lashes and gives you a little lift making you look wide awake. It does lack volume slightly but aside from that, it is a decent mascara.
For me, the piece of resistance has to be the Lipstick in Tuned. It is a deep brown, shade which looks a bit darker in the tube than it comes across on the lips but it is perfect for this time of year. At first, I wasn’t sure what to think about this shade but the more I tried it, the more I liked it. It glides on easily on the lips, stays matte and does not come off when you drink tea which for me is the true test.
Overall, I am glad ASOS has started their own beauty range. I particularly fell in love with the lipstick but I have a feeling there is a lot more to come from the well known online fashion brand. Have you tried anything from the new line? I have my eye on the liquid lipstick next.
