Lola by Perse Make-up Review and Swatches

Lola By Perse is a relatively new British Make-up brand that is exclusive to M&S. They do a whole range of cosmetics, as well as their own brushes.

Earlier on in the year they did a lot of giveaways, and I won one. I received a bundle which included an eyeshadow palette, a lip gloss, a mascara and an eye pencil.

Their products all come in luxurious black packaging, and with their price range in mind they class as more high end than drugstore.

The Eyeshadow Palette

The shade I have is 001 Neutral Smokey. True to the name the palette boasts one highlighter shade, two neutrals, one a ligher beige and the other a darker brown, and an almost black shade perfect for the crease.

The shades all have a very satin, buttery feel and are easy to blend. They all contain an element of shimmer, but more so the almost black. This palette could be a great addition for those who love a smokey eye.

You can get it here for £26.

The Lip Gloss
The lipgloss is a glittery coral, and it has a somewhat more semi sheer finish on me. However, it was more flattering than I thought it would be. It has a slight vanilla scent (which I only noticed when applying it) and isn't very sticky.

You can get it here for £10.

The Mega Volume Mascara

The mascara has a bristle brush, which I prefer the most as I find for me they are the best for lengthening, volumizing and curling. So a good all rounder. It's a classic brush and you can't really go wrong with it.

You can get it here for £12.

The Automatic Pencil
The eye liner pencil is retractable and ultra slim. It is an incredible jet black. It is very soft and buttery, so it would be very suited for smudging in the lashline over a smokey eye.

You can get it here for £10.

Overall, these products are a good set of essentials for anybody, and they do reflect high quality (They're all made in Italy!). However, I find that they are a bit too expensive for me, but then again if they're sold in M&S I doubt I am the target audience anyway. They could however made great gifts for Mums.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried any Lola by Perse products?
