Before we begin – I just want so state (categorically) that I am not a beauty blogger… So please don’t expect comments about the molecular structure of these makeup items or detailed graphs on how it compares to other brands. 😉
I’m just a regular girl who likes pretty things and getting dolled up… Therefore when the team from Cotton On dropped of a bag of makeup goodies for me to play with, how could a girl say no?
Now towards the end of last year, you might have noticed the arrival of a new Rubi makeup range in Cotton On stores. It’s a fun, new range that won’t break the bank, but still gives you lots of on-trend options to try out.
My stash included a nail colours, some lipsticks, a hot pink gloss, roll on perfume, an eyeshadow palette, blush and some make up wipes:Let’s take a closer look at these beauties: The lipsticks felt quite moisurising once applied. From a long-wearing perspective, I don’t think they’re designed with any specific long-wearing properties, but they seemed to stay put about the same amount of time as any other lipstick. My only complaint is that the names of the colours aren’t printed on the packaging somewhere for you to reference again… I’m assuming they put it onto the clear wrapping that the lipsticks are wrapped in, but I ripped those off like it was Christmas morning, so didn’t even think to check.
But hey, I did have fun playing around with all the different colours regardless:All ‘n all I think there are some great options in the Rubi makeup range, and I would definitely look at buying one or two items again once my stash runs dry. Price wise this is what you’re looking at:
- Rubi Lipgloss – R69
- Rubi Lipstick- R69
- Rubi Roll On Perfume – R99
- Rubi Bronzer – R119
- Rubi Make Up Wipes – R49
- Rubi Nail File – R29
- Rubi Eyeshadow Palette – R119
- Rubi Blush – R99
- Rubi Nail Polish – R49
So really not bad at all…
I have to say a big thank you to the guys & girls at Cotton On for this amazing treat. And then do keep an eye out for the Rubi range next time you’re in store.
