Glo & Ray are a British brand who made their debut in 2012 so they’re still quite a young brand. Although relatively young their products have been so well received and seem to have quite a following. I tried a couple of products from them last year which I still use now but I was excited to try out a few more products from their range.

All three of the products I have been trying have that Glo & Ray sleek, sophisticated matte black packaging. They look & feel expensive and really good quality. They’re durable and well made so you’re not frightened or hesitant to throw these products into your makeup bag & take with you on the go, which is always a plus.

I have been trying out 3 products from them and 2 out of the 3 have bowled me over.

Twilight Nude Eyeshadow Quad

Twilight Nude Eyeshadow Quad

Glo & Ray Mariposa Quartet Eye Shadow in Twilight Nude*

This I really really wanted to love because all the colours are right up my street, you know I love a neutral eyeshadow but unfortunately I found the colours looked beautiful in the pan but the colours just didn’t translate well on to my eye. The pigmentation just wasn’t there. I have tried another quad from Glo & Ray and that was the Golden Dunes quad and I would totally recommend that one. I just found all four colours in this quad to be a little chalky and underwhelming. Maybe I got a duff palette but I just couldn’t get these to look pigmented at all, as you would expect the darker two shades were easier to work with but they were still not great.

Glo & Ray Blusher

Glo & Ray Makeup Collection

Glo & Ray Nuage Solo Blush in Luna Maroon*

These Glo & Ray solo blushers are so beautiful this is my second one and its equally as pretty and pigmented as Star Dust. This Luna Maroon (love that name) is a stunning peachy pink with an almost gold luminous finish. It gives you a pretty flush of colour and also when the gold catches the light and makes your skin look radiant. Its a blush and highlight all in one product which I like.

Its a really pretty affordable blush, not chalky or hard to blend, its pigmented and long wearing too. You get a good sized mirror in this too so that is always handy. As I said these blushers are just fab and I get a lot of wear from them.

Glo & Ray Makeup Swatches

Glo & Ray CC Foundation*

This is by far the best Glo & Ray product I’ve tried to date, its my ideal base. I do love a lightweight foundation that will also cover my imperfections leaves my skin looking luminous and healthy. Its not shimmery or greasy but it makes your skin look even toned and glowing. It also blurs pores and fine lines which is just what I need from my base. This glides on my skin and although the product feels lightweight it gives quite a good medium coverage and it lasts all day (I do powder through my T zone). Its only available in 3 shades and I have the shade 10 which is the lightest shade and this was a little light for me during the Summer but now it is the perfect match & I think it is a great Autumn / Winter Base.

If you’re looking for a new foundation I highly recommend checking this one out.

3 for £10 on Seventeen Products

I just couldn’t pass up on this offer in Boots a couple of weeks ago, 3 for £10 on all 17 products. I was surprised by how many new products had been launched and most of them I had no idea about. It took me quite a while to make my decision but I settled on these 3 products. I look forward to putting them to the test.

Seventeen Cosmetics

I have heard mixed reviews of the Phwoarr Paint Concealer, I wasn’t sure on what shade would be the best match for me, I picked the fair one and that looks ok maybe a little too light but I think I can work with it. This little compact has a mirror in too which is very handy and surprising for the price! I am hoping it is similar to my beloved Benefit Boiing concealer, we will have to see. The packaging reminds me of the bobbi brown creamy concealer although the seventeen one is alot bigger. 12g for £5.49

I did’t even know Seventeen had a CC Cream so i just had to give it a go. I have never tried any CC Creams so will be interested to see how I get on with this. It says its finish is Matte & Radiant so thats exciting as I normally associate radiance with a more dewy finish. I picked the shade fair in this but I thought the shade range was poor – from what I can tell there are only two shades, Fair or Medium. The good thing about this CC Cream is that it has SPF 25. 30ml for £6.99

Last up I bought their Back Lash Mascara in Blackest Black, like I need another mascara but I liked the look of the fibre brush. Seventeen have quite a range of mascara’s I know I love their Peep Show one & excited to give this a whirl. It promises to give my lashes definition, lift, length and volume – these are some bold claims! I am expecting alot. 9ml for £6.49
