Jaguar Luxury Cosmetics Review & Giveaway

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review and giveaway!  I was contacted by Jaguar Luxury Cosmetics to take a look at their new cosmetic line.  This is actually a company that specializes in extensions and hair pieces...but they've branched out into cosmetics.  Of course I'm always willing to try out new brands to find the latest and greatest.

I had quite a few items to test out, so I broke them up into categories:


Lipglosses $12, member price $5
These glosses come in squeeze tube applicators with a slant tip.  I actually prefer this style for my kit because it's easy to dispense product onto palettes for use on my clients.  They gave me a nice range of colors.  Not sticky at all...actually extremely moisturizing.  They kind of went on like OCC Lip Tars (not quite as opaque though) but they don't leave your lips dry.  Upon testing, I noticed they have a sweet taste...not too overwhelming, just a little bit surprising.  I was actually really impressed with these.  The color is very buildable and you can actually get opacity from these products as opposed to many brands which are sometimes frustratingly sheer.  I used the red gloss and gold gloss pictured below in two recent shoots and they turned out great! I also rocked the pink in my last Sigma Makeup look featuring the Fun Colors kit.

Here's a pic of me wearing the Red lipgloss in my Drag Makeup Tutorial.



Here's a Shot of the Red Lipgloss I used on a model


Here's a Shot of the Gold Lipgloss I used on another model.


Eyeliners/Lip Liners $5.99
These liners can be used for either eye lining or lip lining. I was sent basic shades like black and brown, as well as more colorful shades and even some with glitter.  They kind of reminded me of Pencil In Cosmetics in that they have their own pencil sharpener.  I was a little weary at first because the pencil sharpener cap leaves a little gap.   I thought that this might dry out the liner but after about two weeks, the liner was still intact. Also, the sharpener works pretty well!  I was actually really impressed because the liners were super pigmented and creamy.  They're actually really good!  You can even use these as an eye base.  The glitter liners actually do have a good amount of glitter in them unlike a lot of brands.  The liner states that it is waterproof.  I tested the black liner on my lids at work and noticed that it faded after a short time.  I'd probaby use them on the eyes if I wore a base underneath and set with powder.  However,  I love these for lips!
Would I Recommend?  Definitely!  Especially for lip lining.


Swatches!


Eyelash Curler
When I first saw this eyelash curler, the style reminded me of the one from E.L.F.  The handles have a type of flat surface which make them easy to squeeze.  They have it packaged super cute in their logo and colors.  When I tried the lash curler, however, I noticed that the curve of the lash curler does not fit well into my eye shape and as a result I can't reach any of my itty bitty lash curlers.  I think this would work for those with normal size lashes, but might be an issue with super short lashes.

Double-Tipped Applicators
I was actually surprised that the brand carried their own double ended applicators.  Again, they packaged them nicely with their colors and logo.  They're much like q-tips but they have a pointed end on one side.  The applicator is not too flimsy but not super sturdy either...it's right in the middle.  I absolutely love using these for cleaning up the end of winged liner and getting the perfect point.  Also, they're perfect for my newest way of applying false lashes.  Apply a bit of glue onto the applicator and dab onto your lashline, let dry for a few seconds, and then pop your lashes on.  This is such a fool proof way of applying falsies without getting glue everywhere.  The pointed tip of these applicators are perfect for it!


The items are sold at retail price unless you sign up for a membership for daily discounts of up to 40-50 percent. Membership is free!

You can check out these products at http://www.jaguarluxurycosmetics.com/.  I was actually impressed that this company originally known for hair, has created a very nice makeup line.  I think my favorites of everything I reviewed are the lipglosses.  The official site for their cosmetics line was March 1st, 2010.  I just checked and noticed that the site might not be completely updated yet, so stay tuned for more web developments.

Razmatazz Whimsy said...

I would love to win because I can't afford any good eyeliner, and the ones I have smear a lot and by the end of the day I look like a glittery panda. And I can't wear lipgloss because all the ones I've tried were sticky or didn't even last. It's so hard to find something good, what with all the gunk on the market.

Goofed on my last msg (reason I deleted- spelled 20 things wrong!) **Hey doll! I have been a happy follower for awhile now :] I would absolutely love to win these items because I have like many never tried this brand and they look to be VERY pigmented! Its so exciting to try new brands out and I haven't had the opportunity to do much of that for awhile, due to lack of money and so forth. It would also be wonderful to do a review of these products for others who may be interested in purchasing them or are curious about the items :] I have literally 2 liners in black! So it would also be fantastic to try out new colors and to obtain more eyeliners in color in my collection! I have never owned an eyelash curler either, how exciting! The glosses look gorgeousss!

Will continue to follow your blog and GOOD LUCK to everyone who enters!

Best wishes and keep that pretty head towards to sky!* ♥

NTR CREATIONS said...

without reading your blog I would not even know that some of these lines exisit. You bring us the new and keep us in the loop about new and upcoming lines. The colors in this line are vibrant and exciting. I love the lip glosses, they look very pigmented and I would love to experiment with what looks like to me is a silver lip gloss. I also love that purple lip liner, its not the typical plum/burgundy lip liner. thanks for the oppurtunity!

i think eyeliners are so great. they truly are one of the most verstile makeup item out there. they can be used as eyeliner, shadow, and lip color. i'd like to win these eyeliners so i can experiment and explore more of what eyeliners have to offer. thank you!

Mischief said...

I would love love to win. Im the stereotypical broke college student. I love makeup but am restricted to ELF and drrug store brands. I'd love to expand my horizons. I also love makeup not because I need to 'perfect me' or hide anything but because I can play up my natural beauty (my eyes are my favorite) and have fun with pretty colors! Love the blog and tanks for so many give aways lately even if I'm not having such good luck with them.
