Did you know Origins do makeup?

Last weekend when I went for my super pampering facial at Origins in House of Fraser, Nottingham, my friend Emily came along. She also had a treatment room facial after me, and is now just as much in love with Origins products as I am! Whilst we were there, Emily also had her makeup done by Nichola using all Origins products. I wanted to share it with you, as it wasn't until recently that I knew Origins even had a makeup range, so this is the perfect opportunity to share!

Origins makeup range is actually quite varied. It has the Planscription Foundation with SPF15, the Plantscription Anti-aging Concealer, the Quick, Hide! Long-wearing Concealer, the Brighter by Nature Skin Tone Correction Powder with SPF30 and A Perfect World BB Anti-defense Tinted Moisturiser with SPF15 for it's base range. The products from this range which intrigue me the most are the Planscription Foundation, which Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup is always raving about, as well as the two concealers.

When playing around with the makeup, I was really impressed by the eye makeup range. With the Ginzing Mascara and Brigthening Cream Eyeshadows as well as Peeper Pleaser Powder Eyeshadows, the range is quite vast with lots of lovely shades in a range of colours. I was really impressed with the pigmentation and formula of the powder eyeshadows, which have powerful colour with a creamy and easy to blend formula. And the cream eyeshadows really have some power behind them, which felt lovely on my skin and again, a great variety of colours.

Origins also has some cheek products, with the Pinch Your Cheeks Liquid Blushes, and the Pinch Your Cheeks Powder Blushes (one colour of which I fell utterly in love with!) The colour pay off on the liquid blushes was great, and the powder blushes feel lovely and soft. Origins also have a Conditioning Lip Balm and their own range of brushes!

The makeup range itself is smaller than most brands you come across, but Origins is predominately a skincare brand. There's a few things missing from the range which would make lovely additions, such as lip colours, bronzers, eye and lip pencils as well as possibly a brow product. But everything which is already in the range seemed lovely. I really love the eye-shadows, particularly the powder shadows, and think the base products look really promising. I'm trying out the foundation, a concealer and two powder eyeshadows at the moment, so keep an eye out for my review!

Seeing the makeup applied on Emily, by the super talented Nichola, was lovely. The eyeshadows blended beautifully together and the foundation looked really natural. The mascara also looks fab, which made Emily's lashes look amazing! I'd definitely recommend having a little swatch and play with the Origins makeup line when you're next near a counter!
