She loves makeup and she cannot lie. Trying new products is always fun, especially if they’re beauty products! A few months ago, during a girls’ night out, one of my friends wore what I thought was one of the most flattering lipstick colours ever. I was intrigued when I found out what brand she was wearing, so I just had to try them for myself.
Mellow Cosmetics may be a bit under the radar for most of us but these New Zealand-made products are of high quality (and super affordable). They are designed and tested here in our own backyard; Cruelty-Free, Vegan and Paraben Free.
Liquid Lip Paint
Verdict: These liquid lipsticks are super smooth and easy to apply! Upon application, you’ll find your lips in high pigmented and velvety matte finish. It’s also none drying which I love (no one wants dehydrated lips). Girls, I think I have a new obsession.
How long does it stay on? These baddies stay on for aaaaaaages. Perhaps a good option if you’re going out for a meal or a few drinks, as its creamy and hydrating texture will give you full coverage for hours. Their lip paint comes in 10 beautiful shades, and my top picks are Barcelona, London and Paris, as pictured below.
Creamy Matte Lipsticks
Verdict: Matte lipsticks have pros and cons, like how it’s vibrant and long-wearing, but we also encounter common issues about its how dry your lips could get after a few hours. The Creamy Matte Lipsticks are the opposite of this, and perhaps one of the best matte lipsticks I’ve ever tried. Its texture is light and smooth that it almost doesn’t feel like you’re using matte at all.
What’s the best thing about it? The name says it all. It’s creamy and high pigmented, so with these lipsticks, you have the none drying formula along with the favourite bold lip look! My top picks are Blossom, Danger Zone and Madness.
Treasure Chest Eyeshadow Palette
A makeup obsessed person like me would say something like this:”you can never have enough eyeshadow palettes.” And yes, I have more than two. Mellow’s Treasure Chest palette isn’t too pigmented, which means it has light coverage. Given the soft texture, I find that it’s very buildable. The palette has matte and shimmery shades, ideal for creating a daytime or evening look. I think this eyeshadow palette is perfect for those who prefers a fresh, subtle look! If you’re feeling like change, I recommend trying out Mellow as it would not disappoint.
