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!
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.
