Jemma Kidd City Chic Kit

This mini kit of Jemma Kidd products was bought a while ago in the ASOS sale.  I have a couple of Jemma Kidd lipglosses already, which I love, and I often read good things about the product range so thought this would be a good way of trying it out without flashing too much cash.  I paid about £9 for this set which includes a mascara, eyeliner, lipgloss and complexion enhancer (fancy term for a highlighter).
The eyeliner is a true brown with shimmer running through it; very pretty but perhaps a touch too red for my liking.  Nevertheless I've found myself wearing this a lot since I got it; it applies very smoothly and is well pigmented.  It transfers a little bit after a few hours wear which is annoying but not the end of the world.  The lipgloss is just your average pink/nude.  Nice.  Not amazing.  I do love the 'complexion enhancer'.  It's quite runny and a lot comes out of the tube, which you don't need.  I pat it onto my cheekbones and it leaves a really beautiful sheen, which isn't at all glittery.  I'd buy a full size of this in a heartbeat.
Finally, the mascara.  It's a very good everyday mascara, that gives a nice finish, but it's extremely wet on application, to the point where if I look up within a couple of minutes of applying it transfers.  Far from ideal, but the more I use it the less it seems to be a problem.  Here I'm wearing the eyeliner and mascara toghether.
I'm pleased I bought this kit and I can't complain overall about the quality of the products.  I'm keen to explore more from the Jemma Kidd range so if you have any recommendations, leave them in the comments below!

  1. I've heard good things about Jemma Kid but never tried it myself. All three colours in the kit look like nice staples to have. (P.S. I received your giveaway package, thanks so so much! Have a wonderful day!)
