Little Mix by Collection

If you didn't already know Little Mix have teamed up with the cosmetics brand Collection - 'Little Mix by Collection' to launch their own range in makeup. I have to admit I am not a huge fan of the girls (or their music to be blunt), but I thought I would review some of their products.

Within the collection, each girl from the group has created their own range to reflect their own individual style:
  • Jade - Vibrant
  • Jesy - Bold
  • Leigh Anne - Bronzed
  • Peirre - Daring
If you see yourself fitting under one of those umbrella categories, there is a range for you. If you fit all of them, then you can mix and match as you so wish. 

Jesy's Rock It Liner* £2.99

Jesy's collection is described as being 'bold', and I can see why. The Rock It Liner is a bold, vibrant metallic gold liner that is guaranteed to catch the attention of many. Easy to apply, fast drying, water resistant and long lasting. I personally am not one for bright, bold colours and could not see myself wearing this. But for the festive period coming up, it sure is a lovely colour to add to a glam outfit you may have in mind.

Jade's Rock It Liner* £2.99

Jade's collection is describe as being 'bold', and again, I can see why. The Rock It Liner is a bright electric blue, filled with lots of glitter. This certainly is not one for me; very 'tacky' looking in my opinion, was an absolute nightmare to remove and I found it was making my skin burn. That said, it was very easy to apply and did take a few coats to get a reasonable pigment of the true colour.


Leigh-Anne's Bronze It* £2.99

Leigh-Anne's collection is described as being 'bronzed', based on having a natural day look and then lots of shimmer for the night. Bronzing personally doesn't suit me, but this bronzer I thought was really nice. Definitely gives the a natural glow, finish to the skin without being over the top. It also highlights in all the right places.


Pierre's Blush It* £2.99

Pierre's collection is described as being 'daring'; if you like to make a statement with your lips, eyes, cheeks then this is the collection for you. I am quite picky when it comes to blush; I hate shades which are too pink and make me look like a clown. This blush however is very subtle, with a slight sweeping to the cheek is enough to give a lovely finish. The pigmentation on the skin (cheek) isn't brilliant, but as it is quite subtle you can keep adding more product until you get the desired look. 

The price for the products is fairly reasonable, although a few of the items are not very well pigmented. That said, the range is clearly aimed at a certain age range, with prices reflecting the potential 'pocket' of such consumer.

Little Mix by Collection is now available in Superdrug, Boots and other high street stockists.

Hope you've enjoyed this blog post.
