Speed Reviews: Elemis, Color Wow, and Cloud 9
This is a gorgeous, gorgeous new product from Elemis that solves that last-nights-lipstick problem when the highly pigmented, sexy red just won’t go! It’s a bi-phase formula so needs a good shake up before you use it to get the water and oils working together. I haven’t tested it on eye make-up because of my lash extensions which won’t tolerate oil, but for lips, job done! If you are using on your eyes, it’s a gentle and conditioning formula for lashes. It’s £19 HERE.
I’m a massive fan of Color Wow Root Cover Up which staves off that root touch up visit to the hairdressers for weeks (it’s £28.50 HERE) but not such a fan of this new product. For a start, Pop & Lock is infused with glitter sparkles that don’t bring anything to the party at all. It just makes the product look all sparkly and glimmery which subliminally suggests it might do the same to your hair – it doesn’t. The glitter just ended up embedded in my hands (photo below taken after washing my hands) and subsequently all over anything I touch.
However, it did give my hair a good shine, so there is some redemption, and it helps coloured hair hang on to its colour for longer. It’s £14 HERE.
There are some big old promises from this new product from Cloud 9 – mostly to cut blow drying time in half. It’s also got sun filter, heat protector and anti-static elements. Somewhat miraculously, Magic Potion DID cut down my blow dry time (I can’t really say if it was halved exactly as I’m not on the clock!) but I definitely noticed I spent less time with hair dryer which is pretty marvellous for someone who loathes drying their hair as much as I do. It’s gone straight into the ‘can’t-live-without’ pile. Nil points though for not being able to find it on-line at their site.
