NEW BRAND: Live Love London

Hello lovelies,

I'm so excited to share with you a new makeup brand I've been loving lately! 

Live Love London!!!

This brand is exclusive to British Home Stores (BHS) and launched in December 2015. They sell everything from skincare to makeup. 
I've actually had my bits for a few months as I wanted to really test them.

                     blush and highlight palette and a lipstick

Only bought a few items to try which I'm loving, so will definitely be trying more. I loved the look of the blush palette and a lipstick is self explanatory 😉

This blush palette is amazing! It has a fabulous embossed detail which gives it some pizazz and the size of the pans are big.

Included in the set are four blushes in various shades of pink from a pink toned nude to a full on berry. They do blend well, some shades need a bit more work than others yet the shades are pigmented and feel velvet smooth. 

You also get two baked highlight shades, a muted pinky gold and a bright pink which I feel is better on top of or instead of blush as it's quite pink. 


swatches of the blush and highlight palette


My swatches were one soft swipe and you can see they have pretty decent colour payoff. Winner!
The paler highlight was the only one I had to do a heavy swatch with to be seen but please don't let that sway your decision to buy this beauty as its lovely on the face.

The lipstick is good for an inexpensive lippie. I chose this gorgeous purple shade with a satin finish and it looks lovely on the lips.

I'd compare this brand to Makeup Revolution which is funny as the company who manufactures this range also creates MUR sooo whilst I don't think they are sister companies it's very similar.

Packaging is the basic glossy black plastic which is pretty standard but I love the brand logo as it has a cool holographic finish 😄

So I know I didn't buy a lot yet what I did buy is lovely. The price point isn't the cheapest, however I'd still give this new brand a thumbs up! 

What do you think of my goodies? Have you tried anything from Live Love London? I'm now eyeing the eyeshadow palettes and contour kit!

Much Love,

Bex X

  1. Great review! I live in the US, so I can't try these out, BUT I've been trying out a few new brands too. I was thinking of writing up a post on them and your post inspires me to do so! xoxo -Pam
