AMUSE REVIEW

Hello,
I was recently sent some lip products from a company called Amuse, asking me to review their products. It's nice to do a post other than a haul for a change..

They are an American company that distributes cosmetics, specifically makeup. You can purchase their products from their website (http://www.amusecosmetics.com.au/). Amuse is produced and packaged in California.



I was sent 3 lipsticks and 3 lipglosses.


LIPSTICKS IN:
Plum
A very deep red.
MAC DUPE: Brick-O-La

Atomic Tangarine
A peachy tan.
MAC DUPE: Jubilee
Cherry Blossom
A cherry pink.
MAC DUPE: Lickable

OVERALL:
Amuse lipsticks come with a mirror on the side for handy use. Amuse lipsticks are very soft and moisturising. They seem to glide on. However, the softness means that melting could be an issue.
RETAIL: $16

LIPGLOSSES IN:
Brilliant Rose
A Rosey, natural pink.
MAC DUPE: Perfectly UnOrdinary Dazzleglass Creme
Amaranth Magenta
A metalic finish, baby pink.
MAC DUPE: There is nothing in my MAC collection that i can refer to. This seems to be a rare gloss.
Jazzberry Jam
A dark plum with hints of dark pink.
MAC DUPE: Star Nova Lustreglass

OVERALL:
Amuse lipglosses are double sided; one side for colour and the other for gloss. Very comparable to the "Maybelline ColourStay Shein" lipgloss range. The pigmentation is, in fact, amazing. Very glossy and long lasting.
RETAIL: $12

Swatches

In conclusion, Amuse seems to be quite a nice brand. I have not heard of them until now and was a bit hesitant when they emailed me offering me some products to review. However, i set up a postbox and was pleasently surprised when i recieved them a week later.

Also, yesterday i recieved some products from The Colour Institute after they stumbled across my blog and saw that i had bought some of their products previously. They kindly offered to send me some more in return for an honest review.

Which reminds me, these are my true thoughts and opinions on the products. In no way have i been trapped into giving them a good review.

JORDY,

I know i was so excited! Two companies contacted me at about the same time it was crazy! I'm not even that big on here so i don't know why??
They are probz manufactured at the same place-CHINA. Although they say made in California...i have my suspicions...

This is an honest review. They told me to truthfully review their products and so i did. I find them very good quality and even mentioned that they may melt.

You are very lucky to be getting sent free products!
I actually have a stall at my nearest shopping centre and they stock Amuse. It is a little more expensive though so i don't really shop there. It specializes in american makeup like NYX and wet n wild so i think i have seen a bit of Amuse there. I just wish it was cheaper but i guess that they have to include shipping prices.

oh and are you going to do that Louis Vuitton bag review? I am sorry to be so pushy and stuff it's just that i am thinking of gettin 1 & want to read as many reviews as poss.

@Mac Princess
Yer i was very surprised when they contacted me.
Well good to know you have heard of them since noone else has!
Yer it is probabally because they have to incorporate shipping prices and then they still want to make a profit.
Yes, i am going to do review. Please be patient, recently i have been very busy. However, holidays are coming up so i will have a lot of time on my hands and that is when i will do it.
Thank you.
