Emolyne The Complete Kit Review / Swatches
Emolyne is a cruelty free, paraben free luxury beauty brand, and you may have heard a lot of buzz about them recently, as they were just nominated as the ‘Best Nail Brand’ within The Sunday Times Style Beauty Awards 2021 for their nail polishes. I hadn’t tried any of their products, so I thought one of the Emolyne The Complete Kits would be the perfect starting point, as the kits each feature three of their products.
The Emolyne The Complete Kit is available in thirty different shade varying kits, each of which contain three Emolyne products for the lips and nails. The kits are £40 each, giving you a saving versus what you’d pay for the three products individually.
Each of the kits comes in a super sleek, luxurious matte black cylindrical tube, with a lid which lifts off to reveal the three products inside. They’re so beautifully presented, and would make for a gorgeous gift idea.
I chose the Emolyne The Complete Kit in the shade Fes, which Emolyne describes as being a ‘pale peach nude‘ and the kit includes the following three products;
- Emolyne Metamorphosis Velvet Semi-Matte Lipstick
- Emolyne Metamorphosis Velvet Long-Wear Lip Definer
- Emolyne Metamorphosis Gel Lacquer
Emolyne Metamorphosis Gel Lacquer
“Quick-drying, gel effect nail polish to create a flawless manicure at home. Ultra-glossy and highly pigmented formula with a high shine gel effect finish without the need for UV lamp.“
The first product within the Emolyne The Complete Kit is the Emolyne Metamorphosis Gel Lacquer which is £11 to purchase individually. The polish has such luxurious packaging, with a weighty glass bottle, and a black and gold lid which lifts off to reveal a black, ribbed secondary lid which is easy to grip during use.
Emolyne describes the formula of the Metamorphosis Gel Lacquer as having a high-shine, quick drying formula which offers a gel effect and finish. Whilst the polishes give a gel-like formula, they can be easily removed with standard nail polish remover. Fes is a pretty warm toned peachy brown nude, which is almost completely opaque in one coat, and dries down for a super glossy finish which lasted for seven days before chipping.
“A velvety, semi-matte, highly pigmented and long-lasting lip colour. The creamy formula is hydrating, weightless and glides on smoothly providing an intense, full coverage colour in one sweep. Available in 15 shades of nude colours to suit all skin tones.”
Next up in the Emolyne The Complete Kit is their Metamorphosis Semi-Matte Lipstick. Their lipsticks are available in 30 shades with 15 nude shades and 15 red shades, meaning there’s a shade for everyone.
The packaging on these lipsticks is absolutely beautiful, and so luxurious. The lipstick has gold metal casing, and the lid slides over the lipstick, and can be removed by ‘clicking’ the “E” button on the top of the lipstick, which exudes luxury. Then the rest of the lid has a glittery gold to pink ombre finish, which looks so pretty and sparkly.
Fes is a peachy nude, which looks very similar to MAC Freckletone Lipstick, except it’s a touch peachier in comparison. The formula is creamy, smooth and super pigmented, with only one swipe needed for full opacity, and the semi-matte finish is so flattering, giving you the longevity of a matte lip colour, and the pretty finish of a glossy lip.
The last product within the Emolyne The Complete Kit is the Emolyne Metamorphosis Lip Definer, which is available in 30 shades and is £13 to purchase individually.
Emolyne Metamorphosis Lip Definer
“Sculpt the perfect lips with our smudge-proof and high impact lip liners that help plump your lips. With 30 nude and red shades, you’ll be able to find the perfect match for your lipstick or use its creamy formula alone. All our cosmetics are proud to be vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and made without parabens.“
The swatches above show the lipstick swatched at the top, and the lip liner swatched below. Both the lip liner and lipstick are in the shade Fes (as is the nail polish) but the shades do vary slightly. The Fes shade of the lip liner is a touch peachier, whereas the lipstick is a little more brown in comparison, but they still work together nicely, but there’s definitely a difference between the two.
This lip liner reminds me of the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Pencils, with similar packaging, and a similar creamy, pigmented formula which glides across the lips. If I had to choose a favourite product from the whole Emolyne The Complete Kit has to be the lip liner as I love peachy nudes, and the formula is amazing. It’s such a beautiful kit, and I love the whole idea of matching your lips and your nails.
