My closest encounter with Twilight was seeing the first and second films and deciding that actually, I quite liked them despite obvious errors, and that if I was Bella I would have some kind of polygamist situation going on.
(No, no, no, can’t read the book, no time!)
This led to Mr Candy taking much pleasure in branding me a Twi-Hard, something he still says to this day which then leads him to a fit of giggles.
Anyway, Twilight Make Up (yes go on, laugh at me) on sale (ha!) for £5 on ASOS (they trick me every time into ordering crap I don’t need).
Twilight Enrapture Sheer lip Gloss in Arsenic and Obsess. I wonder who came up with these kind of names first, Twilight or Illamasqua?
That reminds me, I did buy a full price Twilight Lip Gloss in Luna – nothing special.
Here they are in their pots. I hate potted lip colours by the way, not hygienic most of the time. The design is quite cute though.
Don’t get too excited, remember these are SHEER GLOSSES….
Super sheer, vitamin e laced glosses in two fantastic shades with just enough gold shimmer to bring out your inner sinner.
Obsess – The hottest magenta with gold shimmer and a just picked raspberry scent.
Arsenic – Sheerest back that goes on clear and leaves a trace of gold shimmer with a delicate licorice scent.
I love both of these colours to look at but sheered out, one must wonder if these just become – blah.
Swatches on the lips – Obsess the hot pink is very sheer and looks like a normal lip colour on although in real life, there’s a nice purple shimmer going on:
I really really like Arsenic, its a beautiful muted black, almost turns a grey on the lips with a fine shimmer (not so noticeable in photographs though) on the lips. J’adore.
Its not all perfect though….
The Ingredients List:
The first ingredient is Mineral Oil and it shows. It doesn’t sit so well on my lips, it feels a bit plastic-y if that makes sense. I would have preferred something more natural, especially as it isn’t cheap at full price.
Still, its worth a play at £5 each. Bought it here from ASOS.
