This week I’m using Barry M Matte Me Up Liquid Lip Kit £6.99 from ASOS. I’m very excited about this lip kit by Barry M. Firstly it’s only £6.99, I mean seriously, how cheap is that?? You get a liner and a lipstick! Does the price tag mean that the quality is compromised? Absolutely not! The liner is creamy and packed with colour. The lipstick is so similar to my beloved Huda liquid lipsticks. It smells great, it glides on beautifully and most importantly it looks amazing and lasts! There are metallic kits available, but the range isn’t huge. Barry M please bring out more! I can’t get enough!
This week I’m using Huda Beauty Lip Set, Trendsetter and Bombshell. £29 from Harrods.
Huda Beauty liquid matte lipsticks has got to be my favourite. It smells divine, it is silky smooth and gives your lips a beautiful finish. This lip set is a bargain at £29. It comes with a lip liner and two mini liquid matte lipsticks, perfect for contouring to create fuller looking lips. This lip set is so easy to use, the liner is long lasting and the mini liquid lipsticks glides on so smoothly and does not feel tacky nor does it crack. There are other lip sets available for sale. The colours are so pigmented and beautiful, you can’t go wrong. Huda beauty never lets me down, the products and packaging is always top quality!
For my Lipstick Of The Week I’m using NARS Audacious Lipstick, colour Bette. £26 from ASOS.
I am loving this colour!! It’s the perfect vampire shade. However I had to be generous, applying on a few layers to achieve the full potential of this lipstick. Retailing at £26, it is a little on the high end of lipstick prices. Yes, the packaging is slick, the lid is magnetic and snaps on in a very sophisticated way. But does this warrant spending £26? The sensible part of me says no, but the naughty side of me says this colour is banging. It’s a good lipstick, it is moisturising and goes on very silky giving your lips a beautiful shine. NARS claims that this lipstick gives a full coverage in a single stroke, but I disagree with this claim as I had to apply quite a few layers to get full coverage. Although I like this lipstick, I’m not in a rush to buy more shades from this range as I feel that there isn’t anything majorly special about it that makes it stand out from other lipsticks.
I’m kick starting off my Lipstick Of The Week with Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Paint-On matte liquid lipstick. I’m using 102 Bronze Leaf £25 from Selfridges.
This lusciously silky matte liquid lipstick comes in many beautiful colours. The quality compares to other popular matte liquid lipsticks like Huda Beauty’s. The 7ml bottle will go a long way as the pigment is so good that you won’t even have to use lip liner!
This matte liquid lipstick doesn’t give you that horrible sticky, patchy feeling like you get with some of the cheaper liquid matte lipsticks on the market, nor does it look dodgy and wrinkly when you top it up. It smells amazing and glides on effortlessly, as you can see from the video.
At £25, this lipstick is on the expensive side. But it is luxurious and will last all night (believe me, it lasted through a three course dinner and drinks!). I am a fan, and I will probably be adding more colours to my collection. I hope you enjoyed reading my Lipstick Of The Week.
