BRAND HIGHLIGHT : NV COLOUR


A couple of months ago I was sent a few cool bits from this new brand I have never heard of called NV Colour. They're affordable (tick), have a nice packaging (tick) and all that was left to win me as a new supporter was product quality - and believe it or not they did not disappoint! I decided it would be cool to share my personal thoughts on them on my blog and you can then decide yourself  if you would like to give them a try or not. 



The first thing I was SUPER excited to try was their lipstick. You probably know by now that I am slightly obsessed with any lip product related item. 
The packaging reminds me of Nars but without the texture. It's square and has a magnetic cap. It felt pretty cool and different. The actual shade is fantastic. Super creamy, pigmented and great for summer. If you're wondering where the hell is a swatch, no worries! I have worn this in my most recent video on YouTube that you can watch HERE with a touch of lipgloss.

LOVE!




I was also sent two eyeshadows. The first thing that caught my eye was the packaging because I noticed the pan was slightly lifted. At first I panicked thinking "it's broken..damn" but then realised there is a tiny secret compartment underneath with a mirror and a tiny applicator. I do like the idea and I think it's cute even though it felt a little bit fragile. I don't know how many people would carry a single eyeshadow in their purse for application on the go but if you're into that kinda thing then this is pretty useful besides, who doesn't like tiny things?!

Shade: Bronze 

Pretty warm medium brown with orange undertones. It's not shimmery but has some sheen to it when applied and it's 
very pigmented. Nice smooth application and great for summer!









Shade : Charcoal 

This shade is beautiful for a night out. It's a dark blue with some
purple tones and white specs of shimmer. The next smokey eye you do has to be
with this colour!





LOVE or LEAVE?
LOVE!



Sticking on the eyes, If you're into glitter then you know the pain of swatching/using it. It goes everywhere no matter what you do, however when I saw this colour ...it was love! The most perfect glitter. It can be a little bit chunky but in a way that gives a little extra texture to your eye and makes it pop. It comes with a tiny applicator but I use my sigma brush. The shade is bronze too and goes well with the "goddess theme" for a perfect summer look! 







LOVE or LEAVE?
LOVE {but needs practice} 




Last but not least is this creamy, pigmented, perfect on-the-go/fast-stroke crayon for the eyes. A makeup bag essential for this time of the year and something I will definitely take on my Florida trip soon! I would use it as a base too to make other eyeshadows stick for longer. 




LOVE or LEAVE?
LOVE
