Vegan Make Up review-Ve Cosmetics

I reviewed some of the VE cosmetics range a while ago  (read that post here) and was really impressed by the quality of this UK independent. 
Vegan beauty products which actually deliver especially make up can be hard to come by. So when I was asked if I would like to try some of their latest products I jumped at the chance.

Vegan make Up-whats not to like

First off I started using the moisture grenade £7.99. I'm always after good moistursiers and this one  containing aloe vera and vitamin e is really good.

 It left my skin soft but not too oily, the pump dispenser was easy to use and it didn't seem to be scented.My skin is normal/combination but now I've hit my forties is obviously slightly dryer. I used this daily for three weeks and found my skin defiantly felt softer.
 My favorite product from this review bundle was without doubt The face food primer £18.99. 

This Contains jojoba oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter, hemp oil, arnica oil, vitamin e, kaolin clay & Carnuba wax and looks almost like a wax. It comes with a little heart shaped applicator and I used it underneath my make up.It left my skin as soft as kittens paw, slightly plumped up and made my foundation go on so much better. I was worried I would break out as it is slightly oily but actually once it sinks in your skin is just smooth not greasy.Love it.

make up time

Ok so onto the make up. I was sent some of VEs loose eye shadows and a few of their fairy farts eyeshadow glitters as well as some lipsticks and have put them all through their paces over the last month.
As its Autumn I am starting to switch to more browns and bronzes so really liked the shades pumpkin £4 and Choconut £4

I'm never mad on loose powders as I'm a mucky pup but that aside these colours are rich with a slight shimmer running through them and are fairly pigmented. I found when used over primer they stayed looking fresh for about five hours.

I added the Fairy fart glitter in the pumpkin shade with these two loose powders as well and it added a lovely bit of sparkle for evening make up.

I also loved the Choconut lipstick £15  which as the name suggests this is a chocolate brown shade but with a warm orangy tone so its not too intense. The lipsticks aren't massively pigmented and you do need to build the colour up but yet again the lasting powers not bad at all.
 My absolute favourite lipstick shade was the  Pinup colour.

Pin up is a pink shimmer shade which with a little building looks really bright. I have worn this lots as its the perfect shade for me.

 So overall I am yet again very impressed with VE cosmetics If cruelty free beauty products are your thing or you simply fancy trying out some products made by a very cool woman based in the UK and not owned by Loreal then check them out.
