Nothing is more exciting than new makeup, but what can make that even more exciting, is a makeup brand that is completely unknown to me! How can you not love that? Who am I even asking - if you didn't love it, then you wouldn't be here in the first place, would you?
And on that note, let's have a chat about Gilded Cage!If you're on Instagram, you would have seen a recent explosion of posts about Gilded Cage, and for a good reason! Their lipsticks look amazing, and I will hopefully be getting my hands on some soon, but for now, we're going to have a talk about their eyeshadows and lipglosses!
I was lucky enough to receive their Revelation Eyeshadow in 23 Rose Gold and Charisma Lipgloss in 86 Seductive Plum.
The little star at the top is the eyeshadow, and the heart below is the lip gloss, which has some gorgeous iridescent sparkles scattered throughout it. The eyeshadow has a beautiful, smooth, creamy consistency, and it goes on to the skin easily. For a quick on the go eyeshadow, this is perfect. I've been considering getting a couple of colours to play around with and see if I can get them to blend together, because i would be a great post work touch up tool!
The gloss is also really gorgeous. It's not quite as pigmented as I'd like it to be, but it's certainly very shiny (and do I LOVE the shine!), not to mention not amazingly sticky, which is what I love about it! I've used this on top of a lipstick, and really liked the effect I got from it.
For more information on Gilded Cage, you can have a look on their site here. You can find the eyeshadow and lip gloss for $38 and $28 respectively.
Gilded Cage's tag line is Cosmetics for Singular Beauties, and I have to agree. The packaging, the products - it's been a great introduction to the line, and I can't wait to explore more of it! The biggest problem would be picking the shades that I want to try!
Have you heard of Gilded Cage before? Which product would you be most keen to try?
