Launched earlier in the year A.K.A are one of the newest cosmetic brands on the block, made with the concept that putting on your make up becomes ritual, as you put your make up on you can grow in confidence, the colours can change your personality, the idea that you can be transformed by the application of makeup is the idea behind A.K.A.
Made with quality at the forefront of their minds, all items are made with attention to detail, to make sure they have the best application and wear ability possible.
All A.K.A products are made in the UK.
I was sent two of the products from the range to have a try I was sent a mascara in black and nail varnish in red.
The first thing that caught my attention was the fabulous packages, I love all the wording they have on them, a real confidence boost with each one with wording like sex kitten, OMG stunning, head tuner and never looked so good, maybe we should all start telling ourselves this each morning as we put on our makeup though of course we are all these things make up or not.
Mascara in Black – £7.99 for 12g (also available in Brown and Black Brown.)
I found the mascara really easy to apply, it most definitely separated my lashes, making them more defined and longer looking, I used two coats on the bottom picture (top without) and found it quickly dried, which is always useful as I hate having my glasses off for long (blind as a bat without them).
The formula contains pro vitamin B5 and is also fragrance free.
(Not sure why you would want fragrance in a mascara I could only see that as being an irritant :/.)
Nail Varnish in Red – £5 for 14ml
Available in 12 different shades, covering day and evening colours, there is a colour to suit every occasion.
I found 2 coats was just right for coverage, the formula was slightly runny, I had to get used to putting it on as I often found I had too much on the brush, but once I got used to it, I could quickly and easily cover each nail, without too much mess. The wear was good; I managed to get a couple of days chip free from it for each use. (As long term blog readers will know 24 hours is classed as long wear for me I just don’t do nail varnish’s well).
Both of these products have made it onto my ‘rebuy’ list, the prices are amazing for the quality. I would strongly suggest giving them a try if you haven’t so far.
