Are You In The Know?

Recently, the lovely people at Sparkle PR got in touch with me asking if I wanted to review some new makeup products. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity as I had never even heard of this brand: Know Cosmetics. So, after a little research, I discovered that they are a cruelty-free makeup brand that focuses on rectifying any makeup problems a person may face - from covering dark circles to plumping lips. I got sent 4 products and, in all honesty, I have a mixed opinion about them.

No Dark Shadows Complexion Enhancer*
I am always on board to try a new concealer. I always use the infamous Collection Lasting Perfection concealer but it is good to change things up every once in a while. I actually really liked this concealer. It was quite pigmented and covered my trouble areas well without being cakey. Also the applicator is really fun as it is a brush and you twist the top and more product appears on the brush.

I would give this product a 8/10

No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner*
I liked the concept of this. It is a lip liner that is invisible so it stops your lipstick from bleeding over but you don't have to worry about colour matching your liner and lipstick or about getting a case of the wobbly hands whilst lining your lips and completely messing up your whole look. I thought this product did the job well but I don't wear much lipstick so I won't be using this very often.

I would give this product 7/10

No Bare Brows Universal 4 in 1 Brow Kit*
I liked this product because it came with everything you need in one small kit. The pigment of the brow pencil was really nice and it was definitely buildable. I would go as far as saying it could be competition for Benefit brow pencils. However, I prefer to use powder to fill my brows so I am not an expert in brow pencils. What I do know is, if I were looking for a brow pencil, I would probably go for this one.

I would give this product 8/10

No Thin Lips Secret Lip Plumper*
This was the product out of all of them that I was the most excited to try. And, unfortunately, the one I was most disappointed by. It says that it is meant to plump your lips and tingle a little but I found it kinda uncomfortable to use. Maybe my lips are overly sensitive but it felt like they were burning. But then it does contain aloe vera which I think I am allergic to.

I would give this product 2/10

You can find Know Cosmetics online or in Sephora if you live in the States.

  1. I heard Nikki (from love Laughs Lipstick) mention these on her Instagram recently and I really wanted to know more. They sound fab, especially for a brand that isn't well known
