Edward Bess Launches at Zuneta: Photos and Reviews!

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Edward Bess has just launched exclusively in the UK at Zuneta. I'd never tried Edward Bess before, so I went to check it out with no preconceptions, and after two hours of swatching and digging my fingers into the testers there, I'm glad to say the line is of good quality, and worth every penny. Zuneta has a reputation for carrying quality brands, and Edward Bess is a worthwile addition to the range. Edward Bess himself is HOT, friendly, and very passionate about his work. Pretty much everything I tried, I wanted to buy.

The colour palette of Edward Bess consists of wearable neutrals and classic colours, along the lines of Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier. So if you're fans of either of these lines, or looking for good quality neutrals, you'll probably love Edward Bess.

Over the next couple of days, I'll be uploading the swatch photos I took from the Edward Bess launch, so stay tuned! It'll take me a couple of days because the dim indoor lighting meant that a lot of my photos turned out too dark and too yellow, so I'll have to colour-edit them for accuracy, and you know I'm kind of nitpicky about colour accuracy in my photos...

To start off, here are pictures of the products I played with. Swatches for these are all forthcoming!

First we have my favourites from the line, the Compact Rouge for Lips and Cheeks. These are awesome. Perfect textures, and perfect colours. Not too soft, like the Becca's Lip and Cheek Cremes, and not too hard, like the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges (both of which I love, by the way). Wait til you see my swatches for them:

L-R: 01 After Sunset, 02 Love Affair, 03 Island Rose

Here are the Ultra Luminous Eyeshadows, also another of my personal picks. These have excellent texture and pigmentation - they're soft, smooth and silky without being crumbly, and they are beautifully pigmented. They have more colours than these of course, and you'll see all of them in my swatches in the near future:

L-R: Nude, Mystery, Escape

Mystery is definitely my favourite of the lot. Beautiful neutral purple grey.

In addition to single eyeshadows, they also have eyeshadow trios, the Ultra Luminous Eyeshadow Trio. These come in two colours, and have the same lovely texture and pigmentation as the singles:

L-R: 01 Island Escape, 02 Soft Smoke

These are the powder blushes, called Blush Imperiale. These are just a tad less smooth than the eyeshadows, but are still of very good quality. The colour selection is also excellent - these are as wearable and as universally flattering as blushes get, without being boring.

L-R: 03 Morrocan Rose, 01 Soft Orchid, 02 Desert Bloom

Lastly, the Ultra Luminous Bronzer. These are also another of my personal favourites, and if I wore bronzer I'd be all over these. They come in huge-sized pans, and have the same soft, silky texture as the eyeshadows.

L-R: Daydream, Desert Sun

Other items I played with but didn't swatch were the lipsticks, which I LOVED (they also have this kickass neutral red, the perfect red lipstick!), and the glosses, which were on the sheer side, and had a lovely texture.

If you're curious about any of these, stay tuned, because swatches of all of these are coming up in the next few days.

And to end off, here's a shot of the bloggers and the Edward Bess and Zuneta staff from the launch!
