Jaimie from Justkissnmakeup.com was kind enough to send me some samples of the cosmetic line she is representing and selling, called Motives Cosmetics. (Click on the link to check out the products and shop). They have color palettes, concealer, blush, cheek tints, lipstick, gel eyeliners, an eyeshadow base, empty palettes and more!
I am really impressed by the lipglosses, they are a bit sticky, not overly sticky, but it's at a consistency I like because it stays on my lips. Other lipglosses that glide on may not be sticky but they come off so fast, so I personally like it just a tad bit sticky for staying power. My favorites are "Tiger's Eye" and "Raspberry Kiss". I lost my sample of "Tiger's Eye" as it was in my big 'ol bag and must have lost it taking out things, but it's a gorgeous neutral beige gold color.
The loose-powdered eyeshadows are pretty and really similar to normal mineral eyeshadows, and they are soft and finely-milled. The "Dark Denim" eyeshadow is the perfect matte black that makes a really nice sultry smokey eye and also makes a great eyeliner when used with an eyeliner transforming liquid such as Urban Decay's Eyeliner Transforming Potion which turns eyeshadow into eyeliners.
The colors are really pigmented and the lip glosses are so yummy and true to color. And they have a nice sheen and shimmer to them. They really remind me of the MAC PRO glosses, but so much more yummier!
