I teamed up with LCN cosmetics to bring you a new introduction to makeup. LCN, also knows as ‘Looking Good’ is an international brand now making waves in South Africa. I sourced some of my favorite products from their wide range and put together an effortless makeup look in celebration for the festive season. To make things even more exciting, I am going to be giving one lucky lady a full set of all the LCN products I’ve used in this video worth over R3000! How’s that for Christmas spirit!
Just to make sure that you’re making the right choices, I’ve decided to review each product for you. Here’s what I thought:
LCN Ever Lasting Finish Perfection Foundation
This foundation was slightly light for my skin, so it really wasn’t one of my favorite products, however, the pump system when dispensing the product makes it super easy to control how much product you would like to use. It has SPF 15 protection which means you won’t need to apply any sunblock. Just something extra you won’t need to do this festive.
LCN Perfect Light Concealer
This concealer comes with an easy brush applicator which you can apply the product to your face with. The consistency is perfect for application and for blending, getting the product into tight corners and wrinkles (if you have any). With only one shade, it is better used on lighter skin, but just like my skin tone, it blends in perfectly.
LCN Long Wear Eyeshadow in Nude
I chose the nude palette because you don’t want to look like you’re wearing tons of makeup during the holidays. Whether you’re at the mall or at the beach, you want the sun to hit your face and still have a completely natural glow. There are three shades to choose from. The lightest one can also be used as a highlight to emphasis on certain parts of your face and eyes, and the darkest shade was used for a smokey effect and to give my eyes some contour. The eyeshadow is highly pigmented and the powder is very silky.
LCN Eyes To Kill For Eyeliner
Like a magic wand, everything you need when it comes to eyes! Two products in one, make this LCN Eyeliner stick so easy to carry around in your purse or travel bag. On the one side of the stick they offer a wax-like pencil (Kajal/Kohl) that doesn’t smudge. And on the other side there is a felt tip liquid liner for those cat eyes on a night out. I am not a huge fan of the felt tip – I guess its because I’m so use to using liquid liner with a thin brush – but it worked well, and the brush always had enough product to create a fine, straight line on my upper lid. It dries extremely well and the tip is small enough so that you can create a fine line and build on it if you want it thicker.
LCN Illuminating Bronzer in Pink Orchids
I used this product as a blush. Its highlight pigmented and with lots of shimmer made me want to apply it only to my cheek bones. Included in its packaging is a mirror case so it makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go for simple touch ups.
LCN Extreme Wow Effect Mascara
My favorite product in this entire kit! With its spikes brush, a can really control where I want my lashes to be. It also has a very spiked front end which help to lift your bottom lashes and helps flair them all out. Its guaranteed to create extreme volume to your lashes. As you will see in the video, I have applied the mascara to the one eye and left the other eye bare, proving that its given my basically non-existent lashes some life and extreme volume! YAY for this one!
LCN Lipstick in Pink Seducer
I am not a major lipstick person. I focus on my eyes and grab a lip balm as I dash out the house. I hate having something on my lips thats going to be dry and uncomfortable, or thats just going to get onto everything my lips come near to. But when trying out the LCN Lipstick, I loved the velvet texture of the application. Its long lasting effect gave me a tint even when there was barely any product on my lip. It kept my lips moisturoized while still giving me a Matt lip effect! This definitly got a thumbs up from me. Its pretty casing and magnetic cap makes it that much more a must have!
