A while ago I used a glossy lipstick by NARS called Velvet Lip Glide £23, it was so incredibly glossy and luscious, I loved it. Well, I have just found a glossy lipstick that is almost the same but at a fraction of the price. I’m using NYX Lip Vinyl in the colour Bad Gal, it is also available in 7 other colours. The thickness and consistency of this lipstick means it rests on your lips smooth to achieve a 3 dimensional finish. I love that NYX is available in many stores. I can’t believe how amazing this lipstick is, and for only £7 what’s not to love!
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.
Sleek Matte Me is a brilliant liquid lipstick at a fantastic price of £4.99. It is available in 14 shades, to suit any occasion. I’m using Sleek Matte Me in the colour Vino Tinto, which is so appropriate as this is the perfect red wine shade. The finish is lightweight and soft. It doesn’t feel dry and flaky like some matte lipsticks. I would really recommend this product as you can build a collection of matte colours without breaking the bank.
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.
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.
