It’s all in the Motives…

Mini haul post…

Motives Cosmetics is an American brand by Loren Ridinger. Their objectives seem simple, to make affordable quality make-up for women of all ages and skin tones. They also have a skin-care range that not only has products for the outside but for the inside too (their ‘Ultimate Aloe’ drink is great). When a company is delivering a triple threat like this I am always excited to try it and get involved.

For many of my clients, make-up quality is paramount but it goes hand in hand with price, reputation and more. It can be a little overwhelming looking for the right products for you when there is so much competition on the market. If you’ve read any of my make-up posts before, you know that I am passionate about any tone/ complexion being able to find makeup for them- especially foundation. Whether you have the fairest of skin or a gorgeous darker tone, you should have no trouble finding a variety of cosmetics that enhance and compliment you.

I remember a photo I saw of LaLa Anthony in a fierce hot pink lipstick over a year ago and that caught my attention. It was by Motives, for which she has her own collection- Motives for LaLa.

I was lucky enough to be invited to an intimate Motives Collection Preview last week. The preview showcased their Top 10 products and also some of their huge product range. Several members of the amazing Motives UK team (Tanesha, Gavin and Roxy) as well as a fabulous trainer from the US (Lisa) talked to us about the brand and it’s values. We had demonstrations on how easy the products and tools are to use (even for non- make-up artists) and what they have in the pipeline. The brand has been in the UK for a little over a year now and is doing big things. Not all of the range is available in the UK. I would advise that you check out the American site also especially for some of the foundations. For all my UK followers and friends who are interested in products, get in touch with me.

A great chilled out evening, without the hard pressure sell. It was interactive, informative and engaging. I’ve tried some of their lipsticks and eyeshadows before and have been pretty impressed. You will definitely see more from Motives in blog posts and make-up looks to come.

With my lipstick obsession which you all know about, I order some new products. Ordered Thursday and came on Saturday.

Pigmented, vibrant and flattering shades of lipstick gorgeousness are below as well as a blush 🙂
