Studio 10 is a fairly new beauty brand – in comparison with some of the more established favourites – but it’s already cemented itself as one of my go-tos, particularly when it comes to the Visible Lift Face Definer (c/o £30), a blush, highlight and contour palette which is ideal for on-the-go make up application, and the Youth Lift Glow-Plexion (c/o £26), a radiance boosting product which gives skin the most gorgeous glow.
So when some new Studio 10 products landed on my desk, I literally threw them in front of my camera, snapped some pics and then happily cracked on with some testing. First up was the Plumping Blush Glow-Plexion (c/o £24) which is a liquid blush unlike any other I’ve ever tried. The pump helps to distribute the perfect amount of product – oh how I love a good product pump – and I personally found the best way to apply was to put a pump of product on the back of my hand and then apply with a brush. Now for those of you looking for a pop pow of cheek colour, this probably isn’t the product for you. But while it won’t give a huge amount of tint to the cheeks, it does help to create a super subtle peachy glow, along with an added boost of radiance and highlight. In other words, it just helps you to look seriously healthy and happy. Not much more you can ask for really.
Moving on to the Longlast Velvet Liquid Lips (£22), which are ‘demi-matte’ liquid lipsticks which come in three pinky nude shades. When I first looked at the colours in the packaging, I have to admit I was a bit meh about whether or not they would really work for me – they looked a bit too nude for my liking – but once applied, I was completely sold. The pigment is great, the formula feels incredibly smooth and nourishing and the demi-matte finish gives you that perfect in-between look that gives all the chic qualities of a matte lip without any drying whatsoever. It’s the ideal compromise.
