About The Brand
LB Cosmetics is a new makeup brand from Japan. First launched in July 2014 in Singapore, it is now available exclusively in Watsons. The products from LB Cosmetics are made in Korea, and claims to bring you high quality eco-friendly products with affordable price range from $16.90 to $22.90.
LB stands for “LadyBird”, which the Europeans believe that it is a symbol of blessings and good luck.
In all of my future makeup reviews, they will be accompanied by step-by-step photos on how to achieve a certain look instead of makeup swatches. So let’s get started!
As the name suggests, Gorgeous Eyes in Gold is a versatile palette of 4 shimmery shadows that can take you from day to night time.
Shade 01 and 02 are fine, non pigmented glittery eyeshadow in white and gold. They are ideal for subtle highlighting of brow bones and inner corners of the eyes.
Shade 03 and 04 are rich and pigmented shades of gold. Both contains fine, smooth shimmer.
Colours can be picked up better by using natural fibre brushes instead of the synthetic ones.
After your foundation routine, colour the entire lid with shade 03 as the base colour of your eyes.
Take shade 02 and layer on top of shade 03, where the crease line is located, and blend them out to achieve a nice gradient.
Then take the darkest shade of the palette (shade 04) and colour the “outer-V” of your eyes.
Blend out the harsh line with a blending brush.
Use shade 01 to highlight the “inner-V” of the eyes to brighten up the inner corners of the eyes.
Use the LB Creamy Gel Eyeliner in Khaki to line the eyes. The eyeliner contains glitter and can be used as an eyeliner or double up as a shadow colour.
If you are going for the party look, smudge the eyeliner for a smokey eye look. Then extend and wing the eyeliner, and set the eyeliner with Shade 04.
You can also draw a thin line and tight line the eyelid, then set it with Shade 03 for a subtler day time look (see variation 02).
Finish off with your favourite mascara or false eyelashes.
If you are going for the smokey eye look, pair it with a light/nude lipstick colour so that the focus will be on your eyes instead.
The LB Jewel Water Rouge is a semi sheer lip colour that is non drying on the lips. When used with a concealer, the lipstick goes on semi-matte.
For the popular gradient lip makeup, layer it with an orange lipstick/lip stain (see variation 02).
Tip: If you want a subtle colour on your cheeks that matches with your lip colour, apply lipstick on your fingertips and dab it on your cheeks.
Gorgeous Gold Eyeshadow Palette: ♡♡♡♡♡ (4 Stars Overall)
I love the eyeshadow colours shade 03 and 04 because they are fine and pigmented colours. The gradients also look great when you use all the colours together. They don’t contain huge glitters and fallouts are very minimal. However, all the colours do not get picked up easily by a sponge tip applicator or synthetic brushes.
Creamy Gel Eyeliner: ♡♡♡♡♡ (4 Stars Overall)
Long Lasting Finish: ♡♡♡
Gorgeous colour, really nice shimmer. It’s a wearable colour on a daily basis. However I find it a little creamy, but when it dries it doesn’t give me a long lasting finish that can resist smearing.
Jewel Water Rouge: ♡♡♡♡♡ (3.7 Stars Overall)
Staying Power: ♡♡♡
Feel on Lips: ♡♡♡♡
I love the colour and how it does not completely dry out my lips like some other lipstick does. It is also build-able, something which I love about. However, it is a little too sheer and not long lasting enough for my liking.
