Delilah Cosmetics is a relatively new brand of make-up that launched into the UK market nearer the end of last year. It’s a luxury range with most of the line designed to flatter and enhance – think Bobbi Brown or Laura Mercier rather than Urban Decay or Nars.
The range is the creation of a trio of beauty experts – Makeup Artist Rupert Kingston, Beauty Buyer Hannah Nicholson and photographer Juliet White, and I think you can see the input of all three in the range, which is clearly designed to meet all typical beauty requirements, such as ease of use, flattering shades and attractive packaging.
For a new range, it’s actually impressive how many products are available already, with plenty of base, eye, lips and cheek products alongside brow goodies and a decent selection of brushes; I’m actually lusting after the brushes as we speak – their Foundation Kabuki looks awesome!
On the site you can find the products all arranged in an accessible format, but what I really like is the “Solutions” tab, which gives you product suggestions for tackling and addressing common beauty requests such as covering uneven skin and perfecting eyebrows. There are six Solutions on the page so far but I hope they extend that to include more.
I was sent a great little selection of introductory products, and these were: Farewell Cream Concealer in Linen, Colour Blush Compact Powder Blusher in Lullaby, Sunset Matte Bronzer in Light Medium, three Colour Intense Compact Eyeshadow in Daisy, Flamingo and Biscuit and two Ultimate Shine Lipglosses in Orchid and Amalie.
First up, the shade selection is glorious; the eyeshadows are all flattering tones and hues that would enhance any eye colour, the blushers offer pretty pops of colour and the lipglosses are available in some very pretty pink shades. My favourite from what I was sent are the eyeshadows in Flamingo and Biscuit, the bronzer and blush which both gave a very natural finish, and the Amalie shade of the lipgloss, which is a very pretty, Spring peachy-pink. In the FOTD pictures I’m wearing all the base, cheek and eye products with Orchid on the lips. On the eyes I’ve used Flamingo all over the lid and along the lower lash line, Biscuit on the outer corners and Daisy as a highlight on both the centre of the lid and the inner corner. In conclusion, I really like the Delilah products and I would definitely recommend them. They are in the luxury price bracket and I realise not everyone can afford them – and thankfully we now live in an age when you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a decent beauty product – but Delilah make products that are clearly built to last, featuring very well-made packaging with great formulas and shades, so if you can justify a splurge, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
