You NEED to KNOW About These Cosmetics*

I love discovering new brands - especially when it comes to beauty. And these products are ones you NEED to KNOW about. See what I did there? 

KNOW Cosmetics are a new, up-and-coming, super exciting beauty brand - who have captured my heart with their amazing No Thin Lips* lip plumping gloss and fully peaked my attention with their innovative range of products & beauty solutions. Their goal is to develop quality products to help us conquer all the makeup challenges we face on a daily basis; with effective and beautiful precision.

KNOW Cosmetics aim to provide us with the products and tools to get the job done when it comes to doing our faces - and to keep it done.  

For example, one of their bestselling products, the No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner works to not only make your pout look great short term, but also prevents your lippy from feathering and bleeding out during the day. Slay all dayAs a self admitted lazy girl and a bit of a novice when it comes to all things beauty, knowing about life hacks like this makes my LIFE.

I was lucky enough to be sent two amazing products from Know Cosmetics' collection to try - No Thin Lips* and No Dark Shadows*; both products which are extremely relevant to my life as my lips are pretty feeble [I'd love fillers but yeno, I'm too poor / chicken sh*t] and the shadows around my eyes cause me to resemble the walking dead first thing in a morning. 

Wanna find out what I thought of them? Scroll on, girl.

No Thin Lips, Secret Lip Plumping Lipgloss*, £15.00 [available at Superdrug or Oliver Bonas]


I am OBSESSED with this stuff - I routinely apply it several times a day; either on its own or over lipstick. I've tried a fair few lip plumping glosses in my lifetime, but I can safely say that this is definitely the best one I've used so far. Hands down.

Whereas the formulas of the other lip plumping glosses I've tried [such as Soap and Glory's Sexy Mother Pukka and Cougar's Perfect Pout Lip Plumper] have been thick and dead sticky, No Thin Lips is so, so much lighter. Granted, it still leaves a slightly tacky texture once applied, but it feels more like a lip balm or Carmex - and not full on OTT shiny, either. Its definitely the best one I've used in terms of formula - plus, it doesn't smell either.

As with all lip plumping products, once applied, No More Thin Lips has a menthol vibe and gives your lips a gently tingly sensation as it gets to work. It's a smooth, colour free gloss which instantly plumps and volumises lips; keeping your pout looking fuller, moisturised and hydrated. Here's a cheeky before and after shot of my general mouth area, so you can see this magic beauty tool in action. I always feel so sassy when I'm wearing this!



No Dark Shadows is a multipurpose under eye concealer designed to conceal imperfections and dark circles under the eye area, whilst highlighting your complexion. My enhancer is in the shade Pizazz, which is a yellow toned product - perfect for counteracting and brightening my deep purple eye baggage situation! It's also available in the shade Wow as well though, if Pizazz isn't for you - Wow is more of a rosy tone. 

This nifty little product's oil-free formula is waterproof and long lasting, allowing you to enhance your complexion for up to six hours. It can be applied alone or under / over your foundation.

Design wise, it's a little like YSL's iconic Touch Eclat Concealer ; simply turn the pen to get more product out. It definitely brightens my undereyes considerably - though it isn't a concealer designed to mask your eye bags entirely, so I usually use this on top of my normal concealer for maximum coverage and brightness. Again, I was totes impressed with this product too - and loving the packaging!
