If you like a bit of affordable luxury with elegant formulas and packaging, then you will love new London beauty brand Emolyne Cosmetics. They are all about the Reds and the Nudes – lip and nail colours for every skin tone – and I am instantly obsessed. Here’s what you need to know.
It’s a testing time to launch a beauty brand, but this is such a gorgeous concept that has been exquisitely executed, that I really feel they have a great fighting chance of making this work. Let’s hope so.
What is Emolyne Cosmetics?
So this is a collection of 30 rich shades of red and nude across lipstick, lip liner and nail polishes. They call themselves a ‘dynamic colour brand … making makeup personal again.’
Brand founder Emolyne Ramlov wanted to create a brand where you could find an exact match across all categories. So if you find your perfect red or nude for your lips, you can have an exact match liner and nail colour too.
The Metamorphosis collection includes:
- Velvet Semi Matte Lipstick in 30 shades £21 (15 red and 15 nude)
- Velvet Long Wear Lip Definer in 30 shades £13 (15 red and 15 nude)
- Gel Lacquer in 30 shades £11 (15 red and 15 nude)
Emolyne Metamorphosis Velvet Semi Matte Lipstick Swatches
I have two nudes and two reds to show you and they are so gorgeous! I love the formula which feels super light and creamy to apply, and dries down to a flattering velvet finish. It delivers opaque coverage in a long lasting, non drying texture. Fabulous.
I have Libreville and Lagos from the Reds next to their matching lip definers:
And Lira and Mozambique from the Nudes:
I love them all!!
Make sure you are following me on Instagram as I will share photos of the shades on the lips soon.
The packaging is absolutely gorgeous. Each lipstick has the chicest sparkle and really cool casing.
They are similar to the Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick. You simply click the E and the tube springs open for you to slide out the lipstick.
Emolyne Metamorphosis Velvet Long Wear Lip Definer
The range of lipliners includes a shade to match every shade of lipstick. It works to prevent colour bleeding or feathering. You can use them alone, as a base for extra long lasting lipstick or just to line. The formula is fantastic – really easy to apply and very long lasting.
Metamorphosis Gel Lacquer
The nail polishes promise to be ultra glossy and highly pigmented.
They come with precise brushes for easy application and deliver a gel-like finish. I love the packaging and the formula looks beautiful. I haven’t tested these yet because I am determined to let my nails have a break for a bit longer yet. I will as soon as I can though.
