Julie Hewett Cosmetics ! Pic Heavy

I love to check out new products ( as you might of guessed ) so when i was asked if i would like to review some of the Julie
hewett range i jumped at the chance. Have you heard of this range before? I hadn't so did a quick read up to see what the products were all about.

Julie Hewett is a makeup artist with over 20 years experience. The range of products look to be really impressive with lots of pretty looking colours and textures.
Now for the fun part testing out my goodies:

I was sent a pot of cheeky cheek and lip shine in the shade Peachy £20
A pot of Shimmy Face & Body Shimmer in Pinky £20
A refill Shimmy Pan in Goldie £7.50
A refill Cheeky pan in Rosie £7.50

The cheekies are meant for cheeks and lips and the shimmy can be used as a multi purpose product for eyes, cheeks, highlighter and even on the body.

 Swatches of the pinky shimmy and peachy cheeky
Pretty and sheer

I am wearing the cheeky on my lips and cheeks and the shimmy on the inner eye corners. The cheek and lip shine is sheer but buildable. Perfect for a fresh and natural look. The formula is really moisturising on the lips and so easy to apply. The quality is brilliant on these two products I'm seriously impressed. I'm now wondering what the other products are like ?

Shimmy in pinky gives a pretty sparkle to the inner corners. A little mascara and its easy eyes completed :)

The Cheekie in peachy looks so glowy and fresh. I love it.

 If you are a bargain hunter like me you might have noticed the difference in price between the refills and the pots. At just £7.50 these are a serious bargain and great if you buy the little palette for travelling about.

Swatches of Cheekie in Rosie and Shimmy in Goldie

I have used goldie as a highlighter on my cheek bones on top of peachy and then applied Rosie on my lips.The Cheekie works so well on the lips. Almost like a lip stain but yet it still has a pretty shine.

Messy updo completes the look.

For summer make up these fit the bill perfectly. A range that would be suitable for all ages and so easy to use. I will be packing these in my holiday case for sure.
If you want to check out the full range over at Cocktail Cosmetics you wont be disappointed.
