Product Review: Aloette Cosmetics

I had the opportunity to try a few cosmetics products from Aloette. This is my review on Long Wear Lip Color, Liquid Lip Shine and Natural Makeup Collection after using them for about 2 months.

Long Wear Lip Color
The Long Wear Lip Color lipstick is infused with shea butter, natural vanilla and vitamin E. It has a vanilla scent. The creamy texture leaves the lips feel moisturized. The lipstick in "Pomegranate" is a deep berry red with silver particles. With silver micro-particle shimmer color accents, it imparts a silver sheen that makes the deep berry red look more lively and youthful.

Liquid Lip Shine
Liquid Lip Shine lip gloss is formulated with vitamins, antioxidants and natural oils. The lip gloss has a minty flavor. "Rosebud", is a light fuchsia pink with fine multi-color shimmer. The lip gloss has the high pigment of lipstick. What I like about the lip gloss is it has the high pigment of lipstick while it has the moisturizing texture and thin consistency of lip gloss. So it goes on well-pigmented without drying out.

The subdued shimmer provides sophisticated shine and luminous vibrancy. The finish is a saturated fuchsia pink with a sheer wash of color. After applying more layers on, it delivers a glossier finish. I found Liquid Lip Shine has a good staying power. I am impressed that the color stays on well without bleeding or feathering easily.

Natural Makeup Collection
Natural Makeup Collection features neutral shades for eyes, cheeks, lips and the complexion. With all sorts of makeup and the essential makeup brushes you need for the face in a case, the collection is a good makeup kit for travel. The colors in the collection are coordinated to compliment each other and provides an easy application for a natural look.

This makeup is talc-free. It contains anti-oxidants to protect the skin from free radical damage and gatuline for skin firming. The collection includes:
  • 1 Translucent Veil Finishing Powder
  • 1 Bronzer
  • 1 Cheek Color
  • 3 Lip Colors
  • 4 Eye Silks
  • 2 Powder Eyeliners
  • 3 Professional Quality Brushes (multi-use, eye liner and blush brushes)
-Eye Silk
The texture is extraordinary silky smooth. The silky texture is a great pleasure to apply on the skin. The collection features four eye shadows in ivory, beigy brown, pale pink and taupe. The first two colors are matte, and the latter two shades contain shimmer. The colors are blendable and buildable. The combination of light and deep neutral shades give the eyes dimension with a natural touch.

-Powder Eyeliner
The texture has the same level of smoothness with the Eye Silk. They are very soft to the touch. The Powder Eyeliner features deep chocolate brown and black gray without any shimmer. The shades are not intense or dramatic like the darkest black. Overall, the deep chocolate brown and black gray eyeliners enhance the eyes with subtle depth and definition.

-Lip Color
The lip colors consist of deep red, berry red and shimmery pink rose. The deep red has a brownish undertone, making the finish look warm and intense. The berry red has a cool undertone that I like. The shimmery pink rose has a hint of coral. The berry red and pink rose suit my fairly light skin well.

-Cheek Color
The blusher is a midtone rosy coral. It is matte and has quite a pigmented coverage. The finish is a warm muted coral shade with a bare hint of pinky rose.

The bronzer is a golden bronzed shade with red undertones. It has subtle gold shimmer. The bronzer goes on pigmented. I would suggest starting with a little amount, using light strokes and build up the color gradually in case the finish gets too heavy.

-Translucent Veil Finishing Powder
The Translucent Veil Finishing Powder gives a sheer, natural matte coverage. It has a faint pink undertone. The finishing powder can fairly cover the pores and blemishes, and even out my complexion nicely.

-Makeup Brushes
The eyeliner and multi-use brushes feel soft on the skin. But the blush brush needs some improvement. The synthetic bristles of the blush brush fall out easily and feel too stiff on the skin.

You can buy Aloette products at the website of Aloette. At this time, the website only accepts order that ship to the US and Canada.
