Glo and Ray are a brand that I hadn't heard of until I entered the blogging world, and I'm so unsure why more people don't know about them because their products are some of the best I've ever tried. Last year I reviewed one of their Mariposa Golden Dunes Palette*, which you can read here. If you haven't heard of Glo and Ray I recommend that you go and google them asap; after you've read this post obviously! 

I have recently had two packages drop through my door from Glo and Ray, I'm still testing out the products but I couldn't wait to share what I got with you! They have also redesigned their lipstick packaging for Autumn, which I am in love with, as it isn't a matte black packaging like they usually have.

Glo and Ray have two foundations to offer, their Nebulae foundation and their CC Foundation. The Nebulae Foundation* offers a powder finish to achieve a flawless, dewy complexion that looks radiant and natural. The CC Foundation* has colour correcting properties that disguises pores and naturally brightens skin to ensure blemishes and imperfections are covered, leaving you with a radiant complexion. Both of them sound like my ideal foundations from the descriptions, I'll be putting them to the test and reviewing them fully.

The next exciting product is their newly designed lipsticks! They are from the La-Amo Shimmer range. I have two of the new shades for Autumn, both are nude, but there are many shades in the range to try. The packaging is a bright glossy red, which I love as it's so different to a typical black bullet. They really stand out in my makeup collection now, and I'll definitely be reaching for these a lot more now. 

 First up is Tender*, which is a brown toned nude. I think this shade is perfect for Autumn, so matches the new packaging perfectly. The second shade is Honey*, which is a more pink toned nude; a your lips but better shade. It as a slight shimmer to it, but it's nothing noticeable, I'd say it's a cremesheen finish. I can see myself loving both of these nudes a lot this season. Glo and Ray lipsticks all have a good wear time, I find myself able to wear them throughout the day without reapplying. I feel like nude shades come off the lips more easily, so I may reapply once or twice during the day but it isn't always necessary. A good lip liner underneath increases the wear time by far. 

Stick around for the reviews of the foundations, they'll be up asap.

Have you tried anything by Glo and Ray?
