Getting to KNOW Cosmetics*


Gang, it's time we were all firmly in the Know about these products. I've featured this brand before [here, during the dark times where my photos were considerably more turd than they are in modern times] and used the same puns re: getting to KNOW; but zero regrets are held. Recycled puns for lyf.

Know Cosmetics were initially brought to my attention from their place on the Sephora beauty dept's bestsellers list - but they're now stocked in Superdrug too. Which is super useful / has made my life because I'm probs gonna need to bulk buy all of the No Bare Brows pencils immediately. Keep reading [pls] for a more detailed overview on each product within the range & how it works.

Let's kick off with this bad boy. It comes in two shades; but as I have yellow undertones & naturally sallow AF skin, I opted for the darker shade [Pizazz] best suited to those with Simpson-esque undertones. 

Although it's referred to as a concealer in the blurb on most websites that stock it, I would personally describe it as being more of a colour corrector than a cover up. Cos that's what it does - pretty effectively - on my horrend eye baggage situation. It's a peachy-coral, radiant kinda shade which counteracts the dark purple sick jokes that are the shadows under my eyes. It does definitely brighten the area & makes me look less dead; it's a great tool for perfecting your base.

When I first received this, I'll admit I was sceptical. How can one shade fit all? How can it be 'universal' - I bet it won't be right for my mad, ashy brows. But I should have stopped being such a miserable old crank & embraced the idea, as this product has firmly become my favourite of the entire range. It's the perfect colour match to my brows... I can't quite believe it.

I know some of my other friends who've tried this product [who are naturally darker haired than me] have found the shade too light for them - and I do still feel that having one colour and branding it 'universal' might be a little over-optimistic and not that inclusive; but for me & my crappy excuses of brows, the colour could not have been any more bang on. For reference, I have sorta ashy blonde, grey-ish looking tones in my wispy excuses for eyebrows... so if yours are naturally more warm toned or dark, this probably won't work for you. But I'm proper buzzin' over it.

Now. Real talk time. When you first apply this lip plumper to ya pout, it will burn like a thousand tiny fires. If you're not into plumpers that pack a punch with burning, tingling and fiery situations, I'd probs swerve this one; hun. However, if you can style it out and the tingling situ doesn't bother you too much, you will find that this is one of the most effective drugstore lip plumping products you'll get ya hands on

This is one of the products I know a lot of my blogger baes have raved about the most; their holy grail of the Know Cosmetics solution based beauty products line. I'm personally not 100% sure on it, which just shows how diverse people's opinions are on the same products - and why it's always worth reading a few reviews before purchasing, to see if the item is likely to work for you.

I personally don't like the feel of it on my skin too much... to me, it's a bit waxy and makes my lip line feel dry. That being said; no lipstick is ever bleeding over this sh*t, it definitely does what it says on the tin [well, box] and holds the colour in place... but I think I've been using it a bit wrong, as I often end up with darker lines near where I've applied it which won't fade or bleed over; whilst the rest of my lippy has pyar melted off. Hopefully if I persevere with it I'll start to see the same great results as I know sexy bloggers KT and Mel have seen using theirs.

I can see why Know Cosmetics are such a hit in Sephora - their range of products effectively deal with everyday beauty issues [such as bald brows, dark circles, thin lips and lipstick smudges / bleeding all around ya mouth] subtly; with innovative products and formulas. The Lip Plumper and Brow Pencil are the two standout products from the collection for me - but it's definitely worth having a quick search through the Blogosphere to read other reviews on the range to see which shades & products would work best for you.
