Playboy is a renowned brand creating fragrances, clothing, accessories, home decor and cosmetics that are as seductive and powerful as the world famous model Bunnies of the Mansion. The range of cosmetics are absolutely divine, eye-catching, bold and a fashion statement to put a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye and I’m head over heels.
Here I have three beautiful Playboy cosmetics, the Playboy Sleek Lashes Lengthening Mascara, Playboy Perfect Kiss Intense Lipstick in a stunning Centrefold Pink and the Playboy Perfect Kiss Intense Lipstick in a pretty Pin Up Pink. Both lipsticks are incredibly intense with a high-pigmented formula that is both weightless and stays true for hours. When applying it to my bare lip it glides on effortlessly and provides a stunning block of colour making my pout appear fuller and more defined. Here I wanted to create a natural daytime to evening look without looking like a drag queen.
Above I am wearing the Pin Up Pink lipstick shade which is quite rose in colour and is the bottom lipstick in the picture. It is gorgeously shimmery and after wearing it all evening didn’t rub off onto my teeth or goop up in the corner of the mouth at all, which is my ultimate pet hate. People kept asking me where I got my lipstick from as it’s such a pretty colour, not quite red or pink which makes it perfect for a glamourous daytime to evening look. I find that a bold red can sometimes look out of place and harsh against light skin, highlighting imperfections and looking awful when it smudges or wipes off. The Pin Up Pink and Centrefold Pink are sexy, fun and perfect for all skin tones and ages as they’re not too extreme but add a hot splash of glamour to any outfit.
I’m also wearing the Playboy Sleek Lashes Lengthening Mascara in a glossy thick black which comes with a wide shaped applicator wand. It separated my lashes perfectly as I started from the upper lash line outwards, applying two coats as I worked my way out from the middle edge of each eye. My lashes certainly look and feel longer, the mascara didn’t smudge or dot itself onto my eyelids and stayed in place all evening which makes me a very happy bunny. It is a great consistency, thick and strong without being tacky and gloopy, providing great coverage and the wider wand really helping to catch and extend every lash for a natural look. I stay away from false lashes simply because I don’t want to damage my own and they look awful when they curl up and come unstuck, and there is nothing worse than getting panda eyes with black smudges all over the place from poorly staying mascara. The Playboy Sleek Lashes were easy to remove with a makeup wipe and didn’t damage my lashes or crunch up and go hard. Playboy is fast becoming my cosmetic crush.
The Playboy lipstick collection retails at around £7.95 each and the mascara around £6.40, and are sold by a number of independent online retailers including Amazon and selected TkMaxx stores.
