My First Time Trying Kosas
There are Kosas billboards all around the space the place I dwell. I hold listening to about them through social media and fellow influencers. They’re attaining fairly the Queen Bee standing currently. Their merchandise are recognized for being extraordinarily clear, in addition to Leaping Bunny licensed cruelty-free. Kosas despatched me some make-up samples to overview, so I put them to the take a look at!
Valentine’s Day is arising so yesterday I had my hair guru, Patricia Lynn Laas, come by to present me a reduce and colour. We used Ekoeh (in Darkish Brown), as a result of, since getting my thyroid most cancers prognosis, I’m all about that non-toxic hair dye! After getting my hair refresh, I began fascinated by what make-up I’d put on for V-Day. Since I wanted to check out my new Kosas haul anyway, I believed that will be the proper choice to hold with the “clear magnificence” theme.
I attempted a sampling of Kosas merchandise together with lipsticks, lip oil, lip therapy, liquid eyeshadows, and blush/highlighter palettes. I just like the easy-going, not overly made-up vibe of the model. Generally I prefer to go hardcore glam, however 95% of the time, I need EASY to make use of natural-looking make-up.
The Kosas Weightless Lip Colour lipsticks are very nice. They glide on simply, and they’re very moisturizing, which is precisely what I hoped for. My lips are ALWAYS dry, so moisture is a should for me. The hydrating method consists of shea butter, jojoba oil, rosehip seed oil, mango seed butter, cocoa seed butter, inexperienced tea seed oil, and different elements you’ll look forward to finding in a pores and skin oil or serum.
I attempted Rosewater (a lightweight, cool pink nude colour) and Undone (a extra daring, toasted impartial pink shade). Rosewater is the proper “no make-up” lipstick, and Undone is a pleasant shade that I’ll put on usually. I put on a number of reds, so it is going to be good to have one thing rather less daring, however nonetheless distinctive and fascinating.
I attempted Kosas 10-Second Eye Shadow in Globe (mild copper) and 333 (a shimmery violet). I believe I anticipated these to be extra creamy, however they’re truly extra of a liquid that dries pretty shortly. They dry quick, however not so quick that you just don’t have time to mix them with a fingertip or brush. You can begin sheer and add extra coats to get the extent of colour you need. I like the monochromatic eye look. It’s tremendous simple. You’ll be able to add eyeliner if you need, or simply go pure with a wash of a single colour. I’d like to see them add a extra champagne colour to the lineup.
The Colour & Gentle palettes are SO fairly! You may get a cream or powder method (I went for the powder since I’m oily). And the powder palettes are available in common or excessive depth (for bolder seems to be or darker pores and skin tones). I attempted the common Papaya 1972 (coral blush with golden spotlight) and Longitude Zero (medium pink blush with pink spotlight).
I actually like these. I discovered these colours to be tremendous flattering on my pores and skin tone, and really simple to mix. The colour payoff is superb, they usually aren’t overly shimmery (no glitter chunks).
Kosas has two lip remedies – one is a shiny lip oil and one is a regular matte lip balm. Which one you select actually depends upon what sort of texture you like. They each are available in tinted and non-tinted variations. The lip oil is shiny like a lip gloss, with a citrusy-vanilla scent. It doubles as a therapy because it’s made with hyaluronic acid, peptides, night primrose oil, avocado oil, shea butter, and konjac root. It’s one of many least sticky lip glosses I’ve tried, however it nonetheless has a little bit of a cheesy texture to it. The Lip Gas lip balm has a matte end, with a mint taste. It’s made with hyaluronic acid, Vit E, and konjac root to create a protecting, moisturizing barrier in your lips. I favor the Lip Gas, however I’ve by no means been a gloss woman!
General, I’m actually loving Kosas! Within the pic above, I’m sporting Undone lipstick, Longitude Zero blush/highlighter, and Globe eyeshadow. Have you ever tried something from Kosas that you just cherished? What ought to I attempt subsequent? Depart me a remark under and inform me all about it!
