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.
I’m using Stila Stay all day liquid lipstick in the colour Bacca. This lightweight and vitamin infused lipstick provides full coverage and moisture to your lips. This range comes in 25 gorgeous colours to suit any skin tone or occasion. Unlike some liquid matte lipsticks on the market, this lipstick is not sticky, tacky and does not crack. This lipstick is simple to apply and because of the intense pigment, it does not require a lip liner. If you’re looking for a reliable matte lipstick that will give you kissable looking lips, Stila stay all day will give you a 6 hours perfect pout.
Benefit Punch Pop is all about fun. I am using Benefit Punch Pop in the colour Bubble gum. It comes in 6 other shades called Cherry, Mango, Strawberry, Watermelon, Sugar cookie and Pink Berry. The names of these colours speak for itself. It’s so summery and perfect for this sizzling bank holiday weather. This gloss contains vitamin E, known to soften lips and gives your pout a plush smooth finish. With the colours looking so juicy, I’m a little disappointed that this gloss hasn’t got a scent to match with it’s names. In fact it’s totally odourless, which may appeal to someone who is sensitive to scents and perfumes. Overall I really like this gloss as an every day gloss to go.
