As mentioned in one of my previous posts, Zara just launched a new makeup collection that has got everyone excited, including me. So when you go shopping for clothes make sure to pick up a couple makeup items because Zara is starting to look like a one stop beauty shop and I’m living for it.
The collection was also hand picked by world talented makeup artist, Pat McGrath herself which made me want to try the collection even more. If I can get the same quality as Pat McGrath’s lipsticks for a more budget friendly price then I’m all in.
The collection features creamy bullet shaped matte lipsticks as well as liquid lipsticks and lip pencils.
I purchased two of the lip kits Behind the Scenes as well as the Ultimatte Trio which I will be reviewing at a later time.
The Zara Behind the Scenes Kit contains a lip liner L02, an Ultimatte Lipstick UM01 and a liquid lipstick in the shade M11.
The bundle came in a beautiful navy colored tin like can that was unique and high end looking. I like that this container can also be used to store other things down the road or for decorative purposes.
Zara’s brand is known for simplicity and I like that when it came to the packaging, the simplicity was reflected in that as well.
The lip products were all neatly packed inside a mold so they could not move around. Behind the container was more of a description about the lipsticks included as well as the ingredients, net weight and the shelf life which is unfortunately 6 months.
Everything was luxurious about the packaging including the lipstick containers. They were very soft to the touch almost like a high quality rubber which also allowed for easy gripping.
Zara Line It Up Lip Liner L02
This is a satin lip liner that is very soft and creamy.
The shade of the entire set is like a rosy brown nude color. At least that is how it swatched on my skin tone which I have to say complimented it really well.
Zara Ultimatte Lipstick UM01
What I love about the kit is that it eliminates the guess work. Everything in the kit worked well with each other. You can use the lip liner under both the lipstick as well as the liquid lipstick.
The lipstick container is soft to the touch with a magnetic lid that tightly snaps on so that your lipstick is secured and you don’t have to ever worry about your lid coming off.
The lipstick is of similar shade to the lip liner and has a candy smell to it.
I also did notice that there were little bits of condensation or water droplets on the lipsticks which could’ve probably come from the ingredients.
The color looked like it had a tad bit more pink to it but still gorgeous.
Zara Hi Matte Liquid Lipstick M11
The liquid lipstick did not have any scent at all compared to the delicious candy smell Ultimatte lipstick.
This one again is in the same color range.
I do have to say that this liquid lipstick was also very creamy and made the application easy. The doe foot applicator picked enough product to give you full coverage with one swipe but I did layer mine multiple times to get the full impact.
Overall the kit is very helpful especially for someone who is just getting into wearing lipsticks. There’s absolutely nothing to figure out about the kit because everything compliments each other.
What I also love about the kit is that the shade will be fitting to most skin tones. It’s a fun nude with a little pops of mauve and pink.
If you’re thinking about trying out Zara’s new makeup collection I highly recommend it. The quality is amazing and the price is unbeatable.
