Last year I gave my ‘brand of the year’ award to MeMeMe who went from being a tacky, awful brand that I wouldn’t touch with a very large stick, to a brand that is always within reaching distance and strategically placed in my makeup bag. I went along to see some of their new launches and collections a couple of weeks ago and we’re in for a real treat over the next few months. First up is an extended range of lipsticks that contain the most amazing colours, as well as being super moisturising, have a sweet shine and generally look much hotter than their price tag. At around £8 each these cut a punch and will give you a much needed injection of colour when the clouds are as grey as they have been.
Next we have a really exciting product launch that had me giggling with glee. Goddess Rocks are basically very large bronzing balls that give you an ace three-dimensional colour. Although they’re a blatant copy of the St Tropez Bronzing Rocks I really don’t care… these babies are the same fab quality and inevitably half the price. These launch as part of the new ‘face’ collection in September, which also includes foundations, powders and more.
Within the new face range is also this face cream called ‘Seventh Heaven.’ I’m not quite sure what the ‘seventh’ has to do with it, but this is definitely heaven sent. The cream acts as a primer and moisturiser in one, softening and moisturising the face while evening complexion and creating a great base for makeup. It smells of beautiful citrus fruits and absorbs into the skin really quickly. So quickly that you can’t faff around, but quickly enough that you don’t have to wait before putting your makeup on. I normally avoid moisturisers under makeup as I feel it makes it slippy, but this is just the right balance and has been keeping my slap on all day long – even after a long day in a field with cows. (Stroking not milking FYI.)
You’ve got to love a brand who pull it out of the bag every time, whilst not charging you a fortune. The products they’re launching are so blimin great I want them all. They’ve clearly thought of everything too as this Christmas they’re launching a range of gift sets which take makeup gifting a step further, including little luxuries like candles, shower puffs, hand cream and nail files. They make the perfect gift for someone you don’t know what to get – and with a range that starts at £10 and goes all the way to £50 there’s a gift to suit every budget. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – MeMeMe is all mine.
