A Cruelty Free Beauty Brand You Need To Try? | Know Cosmetics

Know Cosmetics are a cruelty-free American brand which came to the UK early last year. They recognise universal beauty in the market for makeup and create quality products at a reasonable price. They focus on the fixing side of makeup and make products which tackle any type of everyday makeup challenges you may run into... so they are definitely a brand for me then!

The No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner* is the product I tried out first from Know Cosmetics, which is kind of unusual for me as I don't really use a lip liner that often. I like that the lip liner is "secret" because it's just like a clear liner which stops the lipstick from bleeding as the name suggests. It glides on easily and isn't too hard nor too soft to apply. I've used this with both affordable lipsticks and also more high-end lipsticks and it works for both ends of the spectrum. I really do think that this is a must-have in your makeup bag if you struggle with finding the right lip liner shades or want to make sure that your lipstick stays in place all day without worrying about it.

The Universal 4 in 1 Brow Fix* is a great product for travelling as it has a universal brow colour and invisible taming wax and a cap with a sharpener and a cap with a brush too. The brow colour being universal obviously mean it will (most likely) work for everyone and it has got a good staying power with the taming wax in tow. If you're looking for a bog standard eyebrow pencil then I wouldn't say you need this but if you're wanting to buy some new products for your travel makeup bag then this is really handy and I would recommend it.

I hate how my upper lip looks thinner than my lower lip so I do like to use lip products which plump up the lips a little. I've been using the No Thin Lips Secret Lip Plumper* from Know Cosmetics religiously lately and it really does work wonders. It does tingle quite a lot when you first apply it but it soon settles down, it isn't sticky at all which is a huge plus and it definitely helps to make my upper lip look a little bigger. I also like that it doesn't have an offending smell because I've found most lip plumpers I've bought over the past year or so tend to smell odd. This is hands down the best lip plumper I've ever used. 

The No Dark Shadows Complexion Enhancer* is probably my favourite product from Know Cosmetics, I received the shade WOW which is a peachy shade. I really like the packaging and it works to really brighten under the eyes. You do need to use a little touch of powder to stop it from creasing but I do have fine lines which most makeup products I own do sink into anyway (I know I sound like an old woman rn lol). I don't use this for blemishes because it is more of a brightening concealer for under the eyes as the name suggests so I've been using this under my eyes and then using my new Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C2 for blemishes.

You can buy the Know Cosmetics products in the UK from Superdrug and Lloyds Pharmacy starting from £12.50.
