Hi lovelies, are you ready for a huge makeup haul blog post? I'm super excited to introduce to you this gorgeous makeup collection by City Color Cosmetics. It is not my first experience with this brand as I have tried their Matte Liquid Lipstick in the beautiful shade called Homeslice (detailed review with swatches here).
City Color Cosmetics company was first introduced at IMATS LA 2013 as a high-quality and budget friendly beauty brand. Since that time, this brand proved that people around the world can look their best, without spending a fortune on makeup products.
Before I start my review I want to say sorry for posting this makeup haul so late. There was an issue in our local post office and I received the package with City Color winter collection two and a half months later, than it was originally planned. I hope City Color Cosmetics will forgive me for this long postponement and I'm really sorry for this delay. And now, without further ado, let's get started!
The very first product I'm going to talk about is this amazing non-greasy Oil Primer. It comes in a glass bottle with a very comfortable dropper for easy and hygienic application. Thanks to its multi-purpose vitamin enriched formula, you can use this primer to nourish your skin and even hair. I have a couple of dry liquid eyeliners, which were successfully reanimated with this Oil Primer. Apply few little drops of this primer directly on your skin and give it few minutes to absorb. City Color Oil Primer will fill in fine lines and make the surface of your skin smooth and even.
Now it is time to talk about Be Matte Lipstick in a gorgeous brick red color called 'Claudia'. I love everything about this lipstick: simple and beautiful packaging, moisturizing formula and a velvety matte finish. Even though this lipstick is matte, it feels pretty comfortable on the lips. The staying power of this lippie is also great. The color gives me some strong 90s vibes, so in my opinion Be Matte Lipstick is an ideal pair with neutral eye makeup, bold eyebrows and glowing skin.
City Color winter collection features five single eyeshadows: 'New Year, New Me!', 'Breezy', 'Poolside', "Skinny Latte' and Night Owl'. All of these colors are pigmented and silky but what is more important is that they have an incredible finish. I will demonstrate the swatches in one of my future reviews. I'm very excited to play around with these colors and I even think I might film a makeup tutorial, using these pretty shades.
The next product is another makeup primer but this time with a classic formulation. Classic Face Primer prepares the skin for makeup foundation, hiding enlarged pores and other imperfections. The lightweight formula is water based and paraben free, it gives the skin a smooth matte finish and helps your makeup to last longer. You can use this primer under your makeup foundation or even on its own. I haven't decided yest, which one of two City Color primers I like more. Detailed reviews with my thoughts are coming soon.
Who said that contouring, as a makeup trend, is going to completely disappear this year? City Color Contour Palette is one of my favorite makeup products from the entire collection. It is not a secret, that I prefer to sculpt my face with powder products. Powder contouring is easy and beginner-friendly, unlike heavy cream contouring. City Color Contour Palette comes in a light, cardboard case and features three incredibly pigmented colors - everything you need to add dimension to your face. All three colors have a very smooth, silky texture, it is very easy to blend them on the skin.
To tame the most mischievous eyebrows, City Color have prepared a tinted brow gel. There are six different color options for every eyebrow shade: blonde, auburn, chocolate, taupe, ash brown and ebony. This eyebrow gel helps to keep eyebrow hairs in place, fills them with color and preserves the natural beauty and shape of the eyebrows. The formula is waterproof, so you don't need to worry about humid weather, rain or snow. I really liked the performance of this product and hope that in the nearest future City Color will develop an eyebrow pomade collection, similar to these tinted brow gels.
I personally can't imagine a dramatic makeup look without eyeliner. A good, well-pigmented and long-lasting eyeliner is a must have for every makeup junkie. Chic Gel Eyeliner in color called 'Carbon' also has a waterproof formula, so it is a perfect match for tinted eyebrow gel! Waterproof formula makes it perfect black eyeliner for upper and lower waterline.
City Color Creamy Lips is all you need to complete a sultry makeup look. I'll be honest with you guys, I fell in love with this deep pigmented color and creamy formula of this lipstick. It was love at first sight! I would say it is the perfect winter red lipstick that will suit every complexion. Thanks to its creamy formula it feels very comfortable on the lips and glides on the lips like charm.
And last but definitely not the least product in today's makeup haul is the City Color Fierce Lashes Mascara. It has a volumizing formula, that provides a curling effect to the lashes. I have already tried Fierce Lashes Mascara and was impressed with how curly and fluffy my lashes looked.
To sum up my today's makeup haul, I want to say that I couldn't be happier with the quality and performance of these makeup products. In the nearest future I'm going to write a detail review for my favorite products from this collection. I will show you some swatches and talk about my experience. I'm looking forward to test out these wonderful makeup products and share with you my results. Until next time lovelies ♥
