One of the fun parts about being a blogger who writes about beauty products is getting introduced to new-to-me brands. My recent find is Claudio Riaz- a “carefully curated makeup collection that provides an instantly polished finish and celebrity-like glow”. They offer a promising selection of quality makeup brushes and pretty palettes for your eyes, cheeks and lips. Founded in 2007 by Claudio Riaz, the brand is hardly new, but was new to me.
Claudio Riaz Instant Lash Mascara– This conditioning mascara left my lashes longer and softer without the clumps that so many formulas leave behind. My lashes looked super separated, which gives the illusion that I have more lashes than I actually do. The applicator/brush is genius and so easy to use.
Claudio Riaz Instant Pout 5– In light of my recent blog post on orange lipsticks, I was so happy to try Claudio Riaz’s Instant Pout in shade number 5. This lip color is a pretty coral shade that’s perfect for summer. It has a little tint of gold to it, which works well with tan skin. The consistency was creamy and easy to build and gave my lips a sheeny finish (is sheeny a word?) I recommend applying it with a lip brush for a precise application.
