You will probably know by now that I cannot resist a good deal. Recently Lottie London were selling their £150 Mega Makeup haul for only £34! This deal was actually sent to me by one of you which is amazing! I thought this was a great opportunity to try some products from their cruelty free PETA certified makeup range for a bargain price.
I’m not going to list every individual product, so starting from the top, I received foundation sticks, matte liquid lipsticks, a wide range of eyebrow products, a lip pencil, eyeliner, blusher, nude eyeshadow palette as well as a cream shimmer eyeshadow. Lastly there were two concealers and some interesting looking lip products! Phew!
I will mention that by purchasing this mega haul, I did get some makeup shades that I wouldn’t use which I will either be donating or giving to friends/family. I am really keen not to be wasteful as the concealers for example were way too dark, similarly with a couple of the foundation shades. There were also some eyebrow products in blonde or light which wouldn’t work for me either. On reflection, this haul is still a good deal but I wish I could have had the option not to receive these products.
To give this makeup haul a good test I decided to do a full face of makeup as far as I could. I did use products of my own such as primer, mascara, bronzer and highlighter but the rest is all Lottie London!
I really liked the coverage of the All About That Base foundation RRP £7.95 . It was easy to apply in stick form and blended pretty well. As some other full coverage foundations do, it did start to move a bit on my nose throughout the day but it didn’t oxidize or sit in any creases. The concealer was much too dark for me so I couldn’t use it unfortunately!
I also really liked the Arch Rival volume brow powder currently on sale for £4.43. The shade was darker than I normally use but it was really easy to apply. I would just go with a lighter hand next time!
One of my favourite products from the haul was the Shadow Swatch eyeshadow palette. It’s very simple with it’s nude colours but the ones I tried were pigmented. It’s not the most amazing palette i’ve ever tried but I think I’ll get good use of it. This palette looks like it is discontinued but you can get the palette with similar shades at Look Fantastic. I also used the AM to PM eyeliner which I absolutely loved for a golden shimmer! Again this product looks like it is discontinued which is a shame.
The stand out products for me were the Slay All Day matte liquid lipsticks RRP £5.95. The formula was really easy to apply and was comfortable on the lips. It wasn’t particularly drying and lasted really well when eating and drinking. They remind me a lot of the NYX matte lip creams but they don’t smell quite as nice!
I am also looking forward to trying out these unusual lip products, probably around the house as I don’t know if they would survive under a mask! I received an iridescent lip topper, glitter switch lipstick and holo lip gloss which definitely sound different to my normal lip products.
Overall I really liked the final look and I am pleased with the products for the price I paid, although I don’t think I would pay the full £150!
I’d be interested to know if you have ever tried Lottie London and which are your favourite products? If you are looking to try the brand I would highly recommend the matte liquid lipsticks.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! It definitely made me feel nostalgic doing a full makeup review.
