First up is beauty brand Cult GD. The amazingly gorgeous Hannah at Push PR pointed me in the right direction for this brand. Little history: Founded by Jayne Lyons, Cult GD was created solely for the large gap in the market for a innovative beauty brand. Looking through their website, Cult GD is inspirational, a little out there, exciting and at the forefront of most makeup trends.
My first task, and first product up, is the Cult GD Lip Duet! This is not just your normal lippy! One lipstick; double the fun! Two colours fused together. They have some rather gorgeous, striking shades. It's pretty much perfect for any occasion - cos you literally get the best of both worlds. The idea is, you can use just one colour, or mix the two or highlight the centre of the lip. This was going to prove interesting!
How I looked in it!
I must admit, I always, shy away from red lipstick - not too sure why, I just cant help but think my mouth is too big for red lippies and the brightness just exaggerates this! The lipstick was easy to apply and was extremely moisturising when first applied. The colour was bright and vibrant enough even on the first coat and lasted really well, with no bleeding and my lips did not go dry!
Im still not 100% sure on the colour 'red' on me, but its a first!
I was pleasantly surprised with the Gold side - something that looked a tad too 'futuristic' on the stick, looked relatively good on. It gave a nice gentle sheen on the first coat, but this could easily be built up with more applications. Was nice and moisturising and I would probably wear this side for a more gentle change. This was a lot easier to apply as it wasn't a strong enough colour to worry whether you applied it precisely.
Surprisingly, I really like it....
I'm glad I gave this product and brand trial run and will most definitely be giving it another whirl. There are plenty more 'experimental' products on the Cult GD website so get yourself over there to have a looksie! I was most pleased, even if it was so far out of my comfort zone!
Here's to the next trial!
In my search to push my makeup skills and looks forward, I'm looking for any recommendations of products, styles, trends or brands, that you think I should give a go! Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will go, purchase and trial! I need all the support I can get to bring me up to date!
