Love Me Beauty is a U.K. based subscription service that, if you’re a member, lets you purchase products from all different brands at factory prices. Phase Zero is a brand new brand to the LMB family. I was very kindly sent some of their initial launch of lip products to try and I have to say how impressed I am (but you’ll see my exact thoughts below). At the time of writing the Phase Zero range consists of lip glosses, lip toppers, liquid lipsticks and a magnetic palette (which is gorgeous!). After trying their range of lippies, all I can say is how excited I am by their next launch of eye shadows later in March! Now, let’s get into the details …
Lip Gloss | Phase Zero Beauty Review
These lip glosses have a similar texture to my Charlotte Tilbury glosses in that they’re quite thick and pigmented but not overly sticky at all. I find that I’m not really much of a lip gloss person these days, but these are a great formula if you’re in the market for some. Additionally, that price is hard to beat.
I do adore the shades however, as although they’re both deeper colours, and more unique to my collection and the glossy finish makes them more wearable.
Phase Zero Lip Gloss | Goth Gloss | £12/£3.50 | Link
The shade ‘Goth Gloss’ is a deep burgundy. My favourite way to to wear this is with a cool toned lipstick like MAC stone (see my top 5 MAC lipstick post here) underneath for a grungy vibe. It has a high metallic sheen which is very difficult to capture on camera but I honestly own nothing like it!
Phase Zero Lip Gloss | Postbox Red | £12/£3.50 | Link
I’ve been wearing post box red as a day to day shade worn sheer – and it looks gorgeous! Although it’s a very obvious thing to say – this gloss is very ‘wet’ look, not shimmery, so I find it doesn’t emphasise lip texture at all and is also quite hydrating.
Liquid Lipstick | Phase Zero Beauty Review
Where I think the lip glosses are a bit of a personal preference item – they’re great for the price but you don’t need them in your life – I think the opposite of Phase Zero’s liquid lipstick offering. You definitely need these – and every shade you can get your hands on too!
If you’re like me and you have incredibly dry lips and find most liquid lipsticks uncomfortable then these are definitely for you. Previously the only true liquid lipsticks I could really bare to have on my lips were from Nabla; however, these have them beat. They’re incredibly light and moosy, but this makes them so comfortable for all day wear. I would describe the formula as very similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams – but again better, as they’re longer wearing. The only minor draw back is that you do have to wait quite some time for these to dry down.
Phase Zero Liquid Lipstick | Gingerbread | £12/£3.50 | Link
Gingerbread isn’t as orange toned as you might think by the name – in fact this translates as a rather rosy tone on my fair skin. I adore this shade out of all the others in particular. I feel out of all the colours I was sent this one would suit a majority of different skin tones so it is definitely one you should look into.
Phase Zero Liquid Lipstick | Love you a Latte | £12/£3.50 | Link
This shade is more nude than Gingerbread, so if you’re darker than me this may be a shade you want to use a lip liner with. The tone of this is very neutral however, so it doesn’t look too peachy on me which I like.
Lip Topper | Phase Zero Beauty Review
By far the coolest item I was sent was one of the Phase Zero Lip toppers – initially I expected this to be like a sheer, glittery gloss but no! These dry down and set so they’re longer wearing than a gloss. I am truly in love.
Phase Zero Lip Topper | Holograph Girl | £12/£3.50 | Link
This shade is so quirky and fun – I love it! In some lights you can just see the multi dimensional sparkle on a clear base and in others this looks like a vibrant, iridescent pink. I’ve also used this on the eyes and it’s stunning there also. I’ve now got my eye on the other lip topper shade in the range ‘Prosecco Kiss.’ If you’re a glitter lover, you will adore this!
Overall, I really enjoy the simplicity of the packaging and the doe-foot applicator on all products being on the smaller side, so it’s easy to use. Each product has a faint vanilla scent, which is pleasant and not over powering. I’m extremely impressed and can’t wait to try more from the brand – it’s great to see an injection of something new in the market!
