NV Colour Makeup

I recently discovered a NEW brand of makeup that I'm really enjoying called NV Colour - and I have to say that I'm pretty darn impressed! Now, I'm going to start by saying I'm a huge packaging lover (is that a little weird? probably) and I certainly enjoyed the way these products looked when they arrived!

NV Colour "Siren" & "Sorbet" Lipsticks - £6.00 (each)

Most of you know I love lipsticks, I love bright colours - especially Red and Pink for my lips. These lipsticks are pretty great, they're nice and pigmented. They also seem to be quite moisturising unlike some that can make your lips feel quite dry? The Red one is called "Siren" and is probably my favourite out of the two, nothing beats a classic red lip. However the pink one (called "Sorbet") is a really lovely colour, and quite similar to one of my favourite lipsticks called "Sweet Tart" by Revlon.

Now something that I thought was pretty nifty about these was the fact the lids are magnetic, I thought it was really cool (it impressed me almost as much as those kitchen draws you can get that are anti-slam and they just sort of... glide shut... I'm going off topic here aren't I?) Overall I really do like these lipsticks, and I think they're going to become a regular product in my everyday makeup routine!

NV Colour "Lagoon" Eyeshadow - £5.00
My favourite colour is turquoise and mint (basically any sort of turquoise colour and I'll love it), so of course I had to try out the Lagoon Blue Eyeshadow from NV. These eyeshadows are quite soft, the pigment is pretty good and seems to hold the colour even without applying primer (always a bonus)! Now back to the cool design, this eyeshadow lifts up and has a mirror AND a little brush inside - which personally I thought was a really cute/handy idea! 

NV Colour "Watermelon" Chunky Lip Crayon - £5.00
Now, this may come as a shock to some people - but I've never bought or owned a lip crayon before. So what's the verdict? Well, I love them - they're SO easy to apply, it's sort of like drawing onto your lips. The product itself is very nice, it's not sticky and it just glides on nicely. The only thing I'm a little disappointed about is the fact that it doesn't smell, you guys know I love products that smell great - and unfortunately NV products don't seem to be scented at all. I guess that's more of a personal preference though! This was shade Watermelon!

NV Colour "Black Cat" Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen - £6.00
Now this is probably one of my favourite products I've tried from NV Colour, this is the "Black Cat" Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen - if you suck at eyeliner, maybe this will help you! Eyeliner pens just make eyeliner application so much easier, including wings! I don't think there's much more I need to say about this product - it does what it says on the tin... or the box.

So overall, I'm enjoying these products a lot - they look great, they do what they're meant to do - but as I said earlier, if only they smelt good... with names like Watermelon I had hoped it would smell it (however it doesn't really take away from the products being good, scent or no scent!) Good job NV!
