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.
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.
This by far has got to be the most fascinating lipstick I have tried. Too Faced La Crème Mystical Lipstick is vegan and cruelty free and the reason why it is called La Crème Mystical Lipstick is because it changes colour depending on your body temperature. Yes, I said it, it changes colour!! I’m using this in the colour Unicorn Tears. It is available in Mermaid tears, Fairy Tears and Angel tears. It is infused with white lotus flower extract and smells great. This iridescent colour on its own is very unusual and a big statement, it would also give any lipstick a beautiful iridescent sheen.
My Lipstick Of The Week is Ciaté London, Liquid Chrome Metallic Lip Gloss, colour Luna. I’ve always known Ciaté London for their cute nail polishes, but they actually sell many products from lip glosses to eye shadow palettes and they are cruelty free. Their prices are very reasonable and this lip gloss is beautiful. Chrome lip glosses are great for creating fuller lips and also making a statement. This range comes in six gorgeous colours and retails at £15. This colour is the perfect rose gold on its own and can be used as a topper too!
Lottie London is a vegan and cruelty free cosmetics company. Their products are trendy and colourful and without the designer price tag. As you can see from my collection, I love a nude and this is a gorgeous nude called Werk It from Lottie London’s Slay All Day range. There are many colours available in this Slay all Day range. This lip kit comes with a creamy and pigmented lip liner and lipstick for only £7.19! This matte liquid lipstick is creamier and thicker than most matte liquid lipsticks I have tried, but I found that this gave me more time to play around with it before it dried. I like this range a lot, it reminds me of brands like Barry M. I absolutely adore good makeup for a fraction of designer prices and I would totally recommend this one!
NARS Velvet Lip Glide is so dense and rich in pigment that it leaves your lips looking deliciously glossy. It comes in a cute and understated packaging. I’m using this beautiful vamp colour called Unspeakable. To get this really glossy look I applied on a few layers. I love this gloss, it comes in many shades from nudes to vampire. I already have the colour Stripped and I will be adding more to my collection. It’s so worth the £23.00, I highly recommend!
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!
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!
