Crayola have gone and launched a beauty line exclusive to ASOS and it is so cute. The colours are inspired by our childhood crayon colours. This week I’m using Crayola Lip & Cheek Crayon in the colour Lilac. I was expecting this to feel hard and waxy like a real crayon however, don’t let the crayon-like packaging fool you as it is very surprisingly soft. The pigment is amazing and it has a subtle fragrance. Yes, this colour is very daring, but it is a gorgeous statement lip and can be used in other ways. I’ve lined my eyes to complete this look and I love it.
I love Sugarpill for their colourful and vibrant makeup. I’m using Sugarpill Liquid Lipstick in the colour Trinket. Using this doe-foot applicator, this soft mousse-like formula glides on beautifully to create full plush looking lips. It dries into a soft matte finish and feels soft and lightweight. This colour has shimmery gold pigment in it which looks gorgeous when the light hits it and has minimal transfer. It is available in 3 other lovely shades Kim Chi Liquid Lip – Matte lavender, Pumpkin Spice – Pearlescent copper with golden shimmer and Strange Love – Deep metallic oxblood red and is deliciously fragranced. Another winner to add to my collection.
This week I’m using Milani Amore Matte lip cream in the colour Precious. It smells lovely and is available in many other shades. This creamy matte lipstick dries as an extreme matte finish and once dried, it does not transfer. When using such matte finishes I always recommend exfoliating your lips before hand to get a smooth finish. Overall this is a good matte lipstick, it is thicker and creamier than most liquid matte lipsticks which means its quite easy to get a neat finish. The pigment is intense and at only £9 what’s not to love!
So, in the past I have used Barry M Matte Me Up as my Lipstick Of The Week and loved it. I adore Barry M because their products are vegan, cruelty-free and affordable. This week I am using Barry M Gloss Me Up in the colour Vibe. It comes in 3 other colours called PDA, Sugar and Peekaboo. As much as I do like a matte lipstick, to create this summery sultry look, it had to be a gloss that would complete it. Barry M Gloss Me up pigment is beautiful, smells good enough to eat, has added Vitamin E and for only £4.99! This lip gloss can be used daily but also perfect for giving your lips a sexy lustrous pout for that night out. Barry M does it again!
My lipstick of the week is Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor. You may have come across Revlon in drug stores such as Boots and Superdrug. It is known for being a great budget cosmetics brand. I’m using the colour HD Embrace. This comes in 12 great colours and also a metallic range. Firstly this packaging is lovely. It’s not your typical liquid lipstick bottle shape, and reminds me of a pebble. This matte lipstick is unique in that it is 100% wax free, the gel formula means that you won’t get the most matte look, but it is ideal for those who have dry or crack prone lips. I find that with a lot of cheaper brands, they cut back on things like fragrance. However Revlon does not disappoint as this lipstick has a gorgeous fragrance of creamy mango and whipped vanilla. This lipstick has a great plush applicator which means its easy to apply (no need for lip liner) and you get a beautiful pigmented finish. Sometimes you don’t need to spend a fortune of a lipstick to get a good one, I really recommend this one girls!
Mac Lipglass comes in 9 gorgeous shades. I’m using Spite, a muted plum-taupe brown. This dense and high gloss lipstick is perfect for creating a summery sultry look. To create this ultra high gloss, I applied three layers and I love how shiny it looks once it settles on my lips. I am amazed that Mac Lipglass is only £10, and I am so looking forward to trying more colours of this range.
