Glo & Ray Cosmetics

Until recently Glo&Ray Cosmetics has alluded me, ive seen it on social media channels but have never tried it. Sold in BeautyMart, which you can also find in Topshop if you live in London, Gloy&Ray is a British company which draws inspiration from the natural wonder of light. The name Glo & Ray is derived from ‘Glo’, a gentle luminance; and ‘Ray’, a vibrant beam of light. Making their debut back in September 2012, the range is quite impressive with everything you need for your eyes, lips and face as well as one or two extra products for makeup removal and cleansing.

I was very kindly given an introduction to Gloy&Ray with three products which I absolutely love and ones that I have now used for the last 2 months constantly. 

The Nuage Solo Blush in shade Dawn Seed which is a really lovely soft peach tinted shade with slight golden hues and it is ideal for being used as a contour bronzer or cheekbone highlighter as well as a blush.

Encased in what can only be described as a luxurious compact, it comes with an accompanying brush, which is just fabulous and perfect for using on the go. The compact lid holds a mirror which is a nice addition. At £11 it isn't going to break the bank, but it does make you think twice about some of those high end brands which charge almost double!

I do love my eyeshadows and have mentioned frequently that I am a nude/neutral kind of girl and it is rare I leave my comfort zone. The Mirage eyeshadow pots have a mousse consistancy and they work like a cream, so ideal for dipping your finger in the pot if you don't have a brush to hand.

I have the shade Olive Garden which I can best describe as being a forest green but with blue/green shimmer and it is just stunning. This one I have worn quite a few times now and it is quite striking, more so because I have bright blue eyes. Again at £11 a pot it is money well spent, it doesn't crease or smudge whether it is worn with or without a primer, however using a primer ensures it does last all night without the need to touch up.

Lipsticks, you can never ever have too many in my opinion and this La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour in shade Seduce is just absolutely stunning. Seduce is a deep red lipstick which is super pigmented and the colour payoff is amazing, one swipe across the lips gives a full burst of colour. All of the La Amo creamy shimmer collection features a Light Colour Fitness Complex alongside Micro-Shine Particles to provide a dazzling effect for irresistibly fuller looking lips.

Enriched with pigment and with a shimmer finish, lips are left soft, moisturised and with a flash of colour and if you do look close enough at the lipstick bullet you can see some slight shimmer within the colour but this doesn't transfer to the lips so that they sparkle, it just adds to the finished look. Impressively once applied, this lipstick lasted around 6 hours because it had faded to the point a touch up was required. Priced at £12 this is more than reasonable a price and it definitely does give some high end brands a run for their money.

Swatched below with each products this is just one swipe of the finger for the blush and eyeshadow and one swipe of the lipstick bullet, so you can see the amazing colour payoff.

As an introduction to Glo&Ray these are three amazing products and ones that I just absolutely adore and ones that I have used, infact one needs replacing already I have loved it that much. I am now keen to try more products from the range and to definitely work my way through the lipsticks!
