Lately, I’ve been lucky enough to try out some new products from various brands that have either been gifted to me or that I’ve purchased. Today I will be sharing Motives Cosmetics which is a brand I’m quite new with.
I’m overall pleased with the products I was sent and I’m looking forward to trying out more from their brand. Thanks to Motives Cosmetics for the opportunity!
Who are Motives Cosmetics?
They are a cosmetic brand based in the States that are all about making people beautiful from the inside out. Their aim is to produce makeup products that make you feel empowered and beautiful.
I was sent two of their products the Boxed Beauty Palette and the Tender Matte Lipstick.
Boxed Beauty Palette
This palette comes with 6 shimmery eyeshadows and two blush shades.
The shimmery shadows are best applied using your finger and my favourite one has to be the purple with the gold flecks of shimmer in them. I did a look with this colour and I loved how you can see the gold at different angles and how the light reflects off them. I find with the other colours you can really do day to night with them.
The two blush colours in the palette are shimmery. The light pink blush is a great addition to any makeup look and quite pigmented as well. The gold blush I feel is best used as a highlighter rather than a blush. Or you can even use this as an eyeshadow!
It also comes with a fantastic large sized mirror which means if I decided to take this while travelling, it will be of great use!
Love the feel of the powders from this palette, there is slight fall out but not a big deal!
Tender Matte Lipstick
The formula is super creamy and the colour is perfect! Definitely my type of nude! It’s quite matte as well but it doesn’t drag on the lips. I recommended that you exfoliate your lips beforehand so you get the maximum benefit of a matte lip.
The shade itself is a light dusty pink nude that is perfect for any night time smokey look or for everyday!
There is a slight smell to the lipstick, but again it doesn’t really bother me that much. If you are someone that does get bothered by scented makeup products, this might not be for you.
Out of the two products I was gifted, I’d say the lipstick is my favourite! (Not a big surprise haah!)
