A month or so ago I was invited to the Boots store in Leeds as they had totally re-hauled their beauty section, which looks amazing! Some of you may know that their Seventeen makeup brand has now been discontinued, but fear not as they have replaced it with budget brand CYO, and whilst I was there I picked up three products to try out.
The first one is the CYO Bronzing & Illuminating Compact (£5) in the shade The Radiant One, which is for Fair/Medium skin tones like myself. It looks super pretty in the compact and even smells like coconut! This three in one compact contains a matte bronzer and a cream shimmer and pink shimmer highlighter. They can be used individually or all swirled together to give the complexion a warm, radiant finish. All three shades can also be used as eyeshadows - bronzer makes the perfect shadow for making blue eyes pop, and the wear is very impressive.
At the event, there was a CYO makeup artist, and she chose the CYO Colour Nutrition Moisturising Lipstick (£5) in the shade Pop the Question, a warm coral shade. It isn’t a colour I would normally go for, but it really suits my fair skin and blue eyes. The Colour Nutrition Lipsticks are super nourishing and don’t dry out the lips in the least, and the formula even withstands my Starbucks Iced Coffees!
A product I found really interesting was the CYO Two Tone Twist Ombre Lipstick (£5) in the shade Partner in Crime, which consists of two different lipstick shades, one darker than the other, in an angled tip. Both shades can be used separately, mixed together or you can even create an ombre effect with them. The colours are really pretty and in this one you get a light blush nude and a warmer brown-toned nude, which again works really well for my colouring.
There are so many products in the collection I cannot wait to try and the prices don’t reflect the quality whatsoever.
You can find CYO Cosmetics instore and online at Boots.
All the Loves,
