Meet Delilah Cosmetics
Hello, lovelies. I’m back and becoming a little more regular with my blog. Today I’m talking about a brand you may not have heard of, but need to hear of. And that brand is Delilah Cosmetics.
Delilah who, you say?
Delilah is a UK boutique cruelty-free brand and was born from the passions of three friends, recognising a gap in the market for a strong UK luxury brand that caters to women of all ages.
The branding of Delilah is quintessentially British, taking its name from the Delilah Rose, a delicate pink hue which runs through the brand’s aesthetics in such a sophisticated way. With packaging that draws on both traditional materials and historic influences.
When you open the packaging, you are met with a pewter coloured Britannia metal and a gold colour palette which is heavily influenced by royalty, this brand is truly exquisite and easily the most beautiful branding I am yet to come across.
Brading isn’t everything though!
I hear you. No, it’s not. Beautiful packaging does not make a good product. However, with a staple portfolio of products, they have worked hard to deliver a curated collection that is not only beautiful in design but beautiful in formulation.
Ok, so, I’ve been testing these for some time now. I’ve had this little collection for a good six months and have really run them through the testing mill. I also wanted to spend the time really getting to know the brand before I gave my views on the products.
I’m going to talk you through my top 3 favourites from the ones I have tried from the brand so far. Shall we start with mascara?
Definitive Volumising and Defining Mascara
If natural glossy lashes are your thing then this mascara is a must try. The y shaped brush grabs every lash, delivering a lengthening, defined, separated look. This is formulated with olive waxes and contains a stretchable film for long blacker than black glossy lashes.
Now, false lashes really aren’t my thing, which is why I love this mascara. My personal preference when it comes to lashes is a defined and seprated natural look. That being said, this does build nicely and remains clump free even with three or four coats.
The second biggest test for me when it comes to mascara is the smudge test. Is this going to give me a panda eye come lunch time? Absolutely not. This doesn’t budge until you decide to take it off.
Underwear for your face?
Yes, you did read that right. The next product that is in my top three favourites from the brand is their Under Wear Future Resist Foundation Primer. Wow, that’s a long name.
Paraben free and vegan-friendly, think of this product as shapewear for your face. You know when you have that killer LBD and don’t want any lumps or bumps underneath? Well, this does for your face what a good pair of spankx can for your silhouette.
Over the past few months, I’ve found my oily skin to be a lot drier than normal, which is unusual for me and without keeping a stock of hydrating primers I have been reaching for this on the daily.
Formulated with peptides, this silky serum-like formula not only hydrates the skin but creates the perfect canvas for further makeup application. It visually reduces the appearance of fine lines, plumps out the skin and aids in a really flawless finish to your foundation.
Sunset in a compact
The last product I am going to discuss was a tough call to make. I was torn between this and the Powder Blusher, but being more of a bronzer gal due to my yellow undertone skin, I went with the bronzer.
So, I’m not going to lie. When I was younger, I was a fake tan queen! The browner the better. This also meant that I would slap on the bonzer like there was no tomorrow. As I’ve aged, I’ve become, let’s say, more light-handed when it comes to my powder bronze.
I’ve also become a bit of a bronzer snob and can easily weed out the good formulations from the bad. Nobody wants a muddy looking smudge on their face after all.
Formulated with vitamin e and jojoba oil and micro-pigments that help blur imperfections, this delivers a delicate sunkissed glow. Available in two shades, suitable for both lighter and darker skin tones.
But aren’t all bronzers the same?
You would think? But it’s just not the case. The more finely milled the powder, the better it will apply to the skin. The ultra-light and silky texture of this formulation gives this bronzer its place in my top 5.
I still have a list of items that I’d like to try from the brand and will defiantly be back on their website for another haul in the near future.
So to round-up, if you’re looking to try a true British boutique brand, they are defiantly worth a look. The brand is currently stocked in Fortum and Mason and Harvey Nics in London and can also be found in a range of independent spa’s. Take a look at their list of stockists.

Below is the brand’s official word on animal testing.
All our cosmetics are paraben free and no animal testing has been conducted or commissioned for any delilah products.
They defiantly get a thumbs up from me.
I do hope you have enjoyed discovering this brand with me?
