Note Cosmetics

Until this package arrived in the post I had never heard of or come across Note Cosmetics before. One thing I love about blogging is that you do get to discover some amazing brands and Note Cosmetics is one of those that I am glad to have found, or found me.
Note Cosmetics


With it's headquarters in Germany, Note Cosmetics has quite an extensive range of makeup which covers the face eyes lips, Fragrance and nails. Sold in over 50 Countries their manta is

'Strengthening make-up products with skin-care technologies, never sacrificing on quality, always updating its lines, and developing new lines according to customer needs and expectations, NOTE with its innovative approach and affordable pricing policy, is already the first choice of many stylish women'. 

What's more is that the products are paraben free, are dermatologically tested and made out of special ingredients (essential oils and vitamins) that benefit the skin, and they do not use hazardous and cancerous ingredients such as DBP, Formaldehyde, Toluene and camphor agents. If that isn't enough, the products are environment-friendly and never been tested on animals.

I was kindly sent some products from the range to try and I am so impressed with the quality that I have a list as long as my arm of products I now want to try.  Starting with the BB Concealor Cream which not only has an SPF15 but also has a special formula containing wheat germ and vitamin E to protect eye contour, citrus skin and grape extract to help diminish dark spots and Sunflower oil to help even out skin tone around eye contour. 
Note Cosmetics
I have shade 3 which is far too dark for my skin tone, but, what I like about it is how easy it glides onto the skin, it doesn't cake or crease and it doesn't irritate. As this is not my shade, I have only worn it indoors and it has great staying power and lasted the entire day.

Eyeshadow pencils are like a hero product for me and I use them a lot.  This one in shade Blue/Grey and it is really pretty. Smudgeproof and blendable, once applied this is going nowhere, you get just enough time to blend it, which it does really well and then it is set in place all day. 
Note Cosmetics
The formula is soft and silky and it just glides onto the eyes effortlessly, the crayon houses quite a thick nib and it works well on the waterline too.  Available in 7 other shades, these crayons are simply brilliant.

Staying with eyeshadow but in the form of a single shadow this Luminous Silk Mono Eyeshadow, which has an incredible 18 different shades is again surprisingly brilliant. 
Note Cosmetics
I have shade 7 which coppery brown shade and it ticks all the boxes when it comes to application, durability and again it doesn't crease during the day and lasts all day! Impressively Vitamin E is a man ingredient and it protects the delicate skin of eyelids against free radicals.

Smokey Eye Pencils are an item I never think of buying, but this one is not only stunning, it is easy to use and is Ophthalmologist Tested and has a special applicator to create smokey effect.

I have shade 5 which is called Sky Blue and whilst it is not a shade I will use, I know quite a few people who will just absolutely love its colour. As with the eyeshadow Vitamin E is again used.

Onto the lips with the final two products and I have both a Lipstick and a Lipgloss. The Lipgloss is described as being a Matte Moist gloss and owing to the use of Macadamia Oil and Vitamin E your lips will be moisturised all day long with a matte tone.

Available in 8 different shades, I have shade 405 which is called First Kiss and it a bright vibrant pink shade which comes out of the tube looking wet but once it comes into contact with your skin, it is very Matte and dries with a slight shimmer. The formula is not at all drying. 

The final product is a lipstick and this Note Long Wearing Lipstick gives you a choice of 18 shades to choose from. Designed to protect your lips, again the use of Macadamia Oil and Shea Butter nourish, balance palmitoleic acid level and protect lips from drying and cracking and vitamin E along with A and D also work to moisturises and nourish the lips.

I have shade 7 which is Indian Rose and whilst it isn't a shade I would wear as it is too pink for me, it is such a beautiful shade and it glides on effortlessly without that dragging feeling across the lips and it has a similar feel to that of a lip balm and it lasts a good 5-6 hours before you need to apply to it again, even with eating and drinking.

Again when swatching, each product has been swiped just once to see what kind of colour payoff their is and with the eyeshadow using my finger. The BB Cream is slightly too dark, though with moisturising cream or mixed with foundation it can be used lightly.
Note Cosmetics
L-R we have the BB Cream, Eye Liner, Eye Crayon, Lipstick, Lip Gloss and Eye Shadow
As you can tell, I am really impressed with Note Cosmetics, it is a really great brand with products that are competitively priced and has formulas which rival some high end brands for durability, blendability and there is an impressive catalogue of products to work your way through!
