Delilah Cosmetics is a British brand, a collaborative creation of three friends who wanted to fill the gap for a boutique British brand in the beauty market. I was already drawn in by the very chic packaging and the sophisticated look of all the products. I've tried out a few products from the range, so read on to read what I think!
The packaging for the primer is really lovely, it comes in a tube with a pump - great for travelling. The Under Wear primer has a gel consistency and glides on to your skin really nicely. It feels ever so slightly silicone-y but doesn't feel as 'slippery' as normal silicone primers. I apply about half a pump to the areas of my face that needs it, and after a few seconds it disappears as it there's nothing on my face. It helps increase the longevity of the foundation, and feels really comfortable on my skin. As far as high end primers go, this is fabulous! As you only need half a pump each time, it'll last absolutely ages too!
I have the shade Nutmeg; it's a tad warmer than my skintone, but still works and will look much better in the heat of summer. The packaging is exactly the same as the primer and I love this, as no chunky glass bottles to lug around! The consistency of the foundation is like a light moisturiser and can be applied using your hands or makeup brush. I'd say coverage is light-to-medium, although you might be able to build it up to higher coverage where needed.
The creamy foundation doesn't look heavy at all, or doesn't sit on your skin. At first impression, it had a slight dewy finish that looked natural I've worn the Time Frame foundation with the Under Wear primer underneath and just a light dusting of powder on my t-zone. My makeup lasted over seven hours without having to powder in between. It had same slight dewiness as natural skin does, and that was it! Just flawless skin-like finish. Absolutely love the foundation and worth trying no matter what skin type you have.
Continuing with the beautiful packaging, the delilah cosmetics kabuki brush comes packaged in a lovely velvet pouch. It reminded me of the Louise Young LY34 foundation brush that everyone raves about. It almost has a similar size and shaped brush head. I've found this kabuki brush to be perfect at applying foundation. The densely packed bristles of the brush gives the buffing effect of a buffing brush. And as the bristles are long, they're flexible enough to stroke back and forth to really blend the foundation. The brush reaches all the nooks of your face that a normal buffing brush cant get to easily like around your nose on eye contour area. Really a worthy investment if you want the tool for a flawless base.
Another luxe packaged product from delilah, the delilah cosmetics Colour Intense Cream Lipstick. The lipstick is every bit as beautiful as it's packaging. The formula is creamy, moiturising and buttery soft. It glides on to my lips and smooths over any imperfection, the formula is so lovely that I hardly feel like I have anything on. The shade Honesty is a quite 'me' shade, a mauvey-nude kind of shade that I've been quite obsessed with! The colour payoff is excellent. The longevity of this cream lipstick is great as it easily lasts upto 6 hours. For a creamy lipstick to last that long is really good. It doesn't bleed or fade through the day. I'm super impressed with the delilah cosmetics lipstick and it felt nicer than a lot more expensive lipsticks I've tried! If you're looking to treat yourself, definitely grab yourself one of these beauties!
