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.
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.
I’m using FENTY Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick in the colour Shawty. This matte lipstick is creamier than most matte lipsticks I have tried, and is gloriously pigmented. The finish is not extremely matte, but I love that it is subtle. As you can see from the video, one swipe gives you full and intense coverage. No lip liner needed! Like other Fenty products, the packaging is distinctive and gorgeous. This ultra slim lipstick is available in 14 bold and beautiful colours designed to suit all skin tones. At £16 a pop, I think it’s definitely worth the buy and will definitely be adding more colour to my collection.
Revolution London is a cruelty free brand with the drugstore price tag. This week I am using Revolution’s Unicorn Dream Lip Kit. With a metallic purple lip liner and a holographic lip gloss, this lip kit is interesting to say the least. It’s not the most outrageous lipstick I’ve tried as it is surprisingly subtle. To achieve this look, I layered the lip liner on the edges and shaded in the outer parts of my lips. Then I blended it in using the holographic lip gloss. Okay, this isn’t the best quality lipstick I have encountered, but for £6.00 you can’t go wrong, especially if you’re feeling brave and want to try new colours.
