As a beauty blogger I love having the opportunity to test out brands that I’m not familiar with. I’ve found some holy grail items this way! One of those is the gluten-free and organic brand, Gabriel Cosmetics. This affordable brand offers a wide range of products in colors that will work with most skin tones. I was tested out three products: a lipstick, liquid radiance, and signature palette. The main question is, will these products make it into my current beauty rotation?
Illusion Lipstick is a medium tone nude lip color that’s “enriched with nourishing ingredients of jojoba oil and aloe” which seal in moisture and protect your lips from any “environmental aggression.” This lipstick is a beautiful everyday shade and I have even gotten quite a few compliments while wearing it.
It’s moisturizing, but I still needed my lip conditioner underneath it, not a deal breaker since I need it with most lipsticks. Normal wear for this brand is a good four hours.
The packaging I’m not a fan of as most lipsticks you pull the lid off, but this one you have to turn it a little. So if you forget, the lipstick cap will just pop off. This could lead to problems such as a sticky mess in your purse and having ruined lipstick. But, I really like this color and formula so much that the packaging isn’t a major deal breaker for me, but definitely worth mentioning as a head’s up for those interested in trying it.
Liquid Radiance is such a cool and unique product. It’s a lightweight and buildable formula that’s going to stand out among the competition. The rollerball applicator is going to help applying highlighter quickly and easily. Let me tell you, it’s gorgeous!
I have the shade Halo, which is a milky pink shade. It gives the skin a nice, subtle sheen. This product is innovative. I honestly haven’t seen anything like it. With that said, I will say that the rollerball seems to stick a bit dispensing an uneven coat of color. I’ll get a little color, than nothing, than color again. So, it does take a bit of maneuvering to get the coverage I need.
The Aura Palette contains four eyeshadows, one blush, and one highlighter. This compact also features an extra large mirror and two applicators. I love the mirror, I absolutely love when brands include them in palettes with shadows. I never use applicators, but for beginners it’s nice they include them. The packaging is sleek and compact, definitely a good palette for traveling.
This compact is great for women who like pastel hues in their eyeshadow. I typically prefer brighter colors, so I use the medium-tone pink blush all over my eyelids and the grey eyeshadow color in the crease. It’s a soft grey so it’s good for a daytime look.
The blush is insane! So pigmented! When I swatched it, it felt a little rough and I didn’t think I would like it. But it went on nice and was so easy to blend out and work with. It’s a gorgeous blush!
The highlighter. Oh, the highlighter! It is beautiful! The pink-toned powder is so smooth and has a nice pigmentation to it. It looks amazing on the skin!
There’s enough to like about Gabriel Cosmetics that I am thrilled to have these products added to my beauty routine. Have you tried Gabriel Cosmetics? What are your thoughts on the brand?
