A Review of the New CYO Makeup Collection

For this post may I remind you that I am not a makeup fanatic, so please dont expect me to record a Vlog or slap on a full face of makeup just to review this very cute, new collection called  CYO Makeup

In this post I’m merely aiming to bring it to you or your daughters attention because I’m very impressed at the quality and range of the products but above all the prices!

A Review of the New CYO Makeup Collection

My CYO Makeup Review:

The Prices

Incredibly affordable prices starting at £3.00, with nothing costing over £7.50. How brilliant is that?

The products are designed to be versatile, to be mixed and layered so you can ‘Call it Your Own’ hence the name CYO. I love their phrase ‘tools not rules’ I’m all about breaking the rules.

Cyo makeup advocates playing and experimenting as you create your own personal look.

Cyo makeup still maintains the quality even though the prices are cheap. This way you get more for less with great performing versatile products.

 

My CYO makeup Products

Illuminating Mixing Cream.

I chose the ‘Turn on the light’ – Illuminating mixing cream. £6.00

This is a brilliant little product to mix with your moisturiser or foundation. I am using this with my normal moisturiser, as it gives a gentle lift to my morning face in the form of some subtle illumination. At this price you dont have to use it sparingly, just slap it on!

 

A Review of the New CYO Makeup Collection

 

The Details:

• 3in1: Use alone, mix with foundation or use on top
• Highlights cheeks, brows & eyes
• Gives skin a natural, dewy glow
• Skin looks brighter & more awake
• Instant skin fix
• Moisturising
• Long lasting

My verdict:

I like this a lot and would buy it for myself (Oh now come on! at £6.00 for something that makes you look better in the morning wouldn’t you?) It is moisturising but not shiny as in greasy, just gives a glow when used with my moisturiser. Yes it di last well throughout the day too. Thumbs up!

 

CYO Crush On Metal Metallic Eyeshadow £4.50

I tried this eyeshadow in the colour ‘Cooey’

Apparently you can use these eye shadows as face paint when festival fever is in the air? Must admit to having not tried that as part of this review! (Oh how I need a daughter to test this one out for me)

The Details

• Highly pigmented
• Rich colour
• Multi-dimensional
• Sparkle effect
• Soft, velvety texture
• Blendable & buildable

 

My Verdict

Surprised at how soft, and finger blendable this is… I liked it even though I am wearing more cream based products at the moment. Would like to try it in another colour.

 

CYO Groom Box Brow Kit £6.50

I have this fab little Brow kit in Fair/medium 

 

A Review of the New CYO Makeup Collection

 

The Details:

• Wax, powder, highlighter & pencil in one handy kit
• Contains everything you need to create your preferred brow style
• Water and smudge resistant
• Long lasting
• Contains a mirror & applicator for on the go top ups

My Verdict

This is the bees knees, I love a little kit that really does have everything you need! This one will be staying in my handbag makeup bag for touch ups on the go. It is very natural looking and easy to apply, the highlighter is perfect for applying immediately under your brows too. Thumbs up!

 

Matte Lot Of Good Lipstick

I have this CYO Lipstick in Bassline, it will be nice for going out to dinner as it lasts a few hours.

 

A Review of the New CYO Makeup Collection

 

The Details
• Highly pigmented, buildable colour
• Doesn’t feather, bleed or transfer
• Comfortable to wear
• Lips feel moisturised
• Long lasting
• Cherry & Vanilla fragrance

My Verdict:

A natural matte finish, if you like Matte lipstick this one is soft and not too drying. It definitely lasts well and I love the smell of it! Again I just need to try this in another colour I fancy the this shade of ‘Cold Brew’ it would look so pretty for spring/summer.

 

My favourite product is that illumination mixing cream. planning to add some to my body lotion after my next shower. I bet it would look great on your legs too!

 

Overall Impression and my favourite product?

2 CYO Crush on metallic eyeshadow

3 CYO Groom Box Brow Kit

4 CYO Matte lot of good Lipstick

 

Available from Boots stores  and online. This is a great new low priced range, the products and colours will be updated regularly so I am looking forward to seeing more. It’s the sort of thing I would buy whilst shopping for deodorant and shower gel in boots. The prices wont break the bank and you can afford to experiment.

My favourite product is that illumination mixing cream. planning to add some to my body lotion after my next shower. I bet it would look great on your legs too, now there’s an idea.

Did you read the review I wrote about Trinny london make-up?

Have a great week, bestest wishes…
