3INA The Longwear Lipstick is cruelty and paraben free. This perfect nude I’m using is 503 Beige which I purchased off ASOS.com but it is available in 20 lush colours from 3INA.com. Matte lipsticks can easily be too dry or sticky, however, this easy to apply matte lipstick has a creamy texture which dries into a subtle soft matte finish. The price is not to bad either, with one application lasting so long, you will get long use of of this little bottle.
It’s festival season so this week I’m using Lottie London Glitter Switch in the colour High Roller to create this cute look. When you first apply this lipstick, it dries matte. Then the amazing bit, when you press your lips together it reveals glitter pigment! The more you press your lips together the sparkier your lips become. It is easy to apply and is so pigmented it does not require a lip liner. It comes in three gorgeous colours and only costs £6.95! I’m totally in love with Lottie London’s take on this glitter lipstick, just perfect for that extra bit of sparkle.
This week I’m using Beauty Bakerie’s ASOS Exclusive Lip Whip in the colour ASOS Nude. This cruelty free brand is cutesie to say the least, with some product packaging resembling cute food like a tub of ice cream. This matte finish liquid lipstick is thicker than most liquid matte lipsticks I have used in the past. The thick velvet texture gives your lips a full and smooth appearance but, only if you don’t press your lips together once the lipstick has dried. If you do this, the lipstick becomes very sticky and no longer looks smooth. This is on sale for only £7.00 from £16.00, it’s such an incredible price. The only thing I would say is use with caution as it isn’t the easiest of mattes to use.

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!
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.
This HAX 2-Tone Rose Gold Lip Kit is available at ASOS.com. Included in this kit is a lip liner, a liquid lipstick, a pot of gold pigment, a brush and all for only £14.99! The colours in this kit are seriously cute and the lipstick smells amazing. It is also available in other colours. Instructions are included in this kit making it very simple to create a professional looking lip statement. With festival season coming up, this two tone lip is just what you need to make you stand out from the crowd.
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.
Revolution Luxe lip kit is a serious bargain. It’s a drugstore brand and it’s pretty decent. The Revolution Luxe Lip Kit includes a lip liner and a lipstick and comes in matte, metallic and glossy. The liner is quality, it’s pigmented and creamy. The matte lipstick is good, although it doesn’t have a nice fragrance like other brands it is not something I’m going to cry over because this kit costs £6. If you love collecting cute lip colours you would love this. And you wouldn’t be breaking the bank either.
I am a fan of Ciaté, a cruelty free and vegan friendly brand. This week I’m using Ciaté Glitter flip in the colour Whisper. It comes in many gorgeous colours, but what is really cool about this lipstick is that it becomes glittery the more you pucker your lips together! To use this, you apply one coat and allow it to dry for a couple of minutes, then the best bit, you press your lips together and watch as the glitter reveals itself! It’s magic! The more you smack your lips together, the more sparkly your lips become. It’s so fun and pretty, I love it.00
