I was so excited when I got to preview the Ciaté London Colour Cosmetics Collection, which launched exclusively at Sephora this past spring. I've always been a fan of the brand's nail products, and it was great to see the brand extend its range into cosmetics, with the motto LOVE.PLAY.COLOUR.
The colour collection is split into three categories: Hero pieces which fit into any make-up bag, Core collection items available on an extended variety of shades, and Trend collections, which highlight the fresh-off-the-runway trends and innovative textures.
I love the Trend Report featured on all of the packaging, which tells you tips on how to utilize each product. The packaging also has a snapshot of how the color looks on the lips or eyes.
Check out highlights from each product below.
Lip & Mix
Glitz Grip Lip Adhesive / Lip Pigment Glitter, Shimmer, or Velvet
Holographic glitters, pearlescent powders and velvety textures.
Apply a thin layer of the Glitz Grip sealer onto lips, then dab the pigment applicator into the Glitz Grip sealer, then into the pigment to pick up the particles and press directly on lips.
Colour-Rich Lip Lacquer - $18
8 shades from brights to nudes
Combines the ease of a gloss with the look of a lipstick. Formulated with moisture infusing tripeptide. Has a lightweight feel and is intensely smoothing.
Here's a look at the Patent Pout in Abracadabra that I tried on during the preview. This has to be my favorite Ciate product and bold color! I always make sure I have on a lip gloss or lipstick and I love that Patent Pout combines the two in one product! The super shine is amazing!
