Smooch: cosmetics with sex appeal

  Sunday 10th November 2013

When you look at any cosmetics department within high-street stores you find that make-up packaging ranges from being bright and bold to sleek and modern. But could you honestly say that you’ve noticed a brand that is sexy –literally?

At Smooch Cosmetics it’s all about being sexy. The label was created by a lady called Kitty, and came about while she was getting ready for a celebrity bash. Kitty mused over the fact that cosmetics were a little like underwear – you have your everyday white, black and nudes, the base – or foundation – of your lingerie collection. Then there are the items you save for special occasions, the highlighters, the products that outline and define, drawing attention to those areas you want to focus on. Be it the lacy bra that offers extra cleavage, the super sheer pants to give you a great bum, or the thong for no VPL.

Kitty wondered “why can’t we have a cosmetics range that combines the two?” A range of make-up that could be viewed as basic but made one feel special every day. Smooch is known for its saucy, lacy packaging and highly desirable range of colours.When you look at the range, the packaging is sleek, black and sexy and the little details like the lace and the fishnet print really emphasise how sensual this make-up truly is.

Smooch also stocks products in some gorgeous colours at the moment. The Nocturnal palette is great for achieving smoky eyes and is an essential for your Christmas party this year. The Berry Kiss lipstick is a gorgeous colour for autumn and its packaging luxurious. If you’re looking for a dark, moody colour for Halloween, then you need to invest in the Deadly Nightshade nail polish. It’s so rich and would also look great at the office party.

Smooch is a make-up label you seriously need to invest in. Whether you want your basic neutral shades, or something with a bit more sex appeal- you can invest in some fancier pieces, such as plum, pink or red shades – Smooch has something tempting just for you.
