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!
If you’re looking for the perfect festival look, look no further. Models own Glitter Lip Kit comes in 5 beautiful colours. I’m using the Rose Meteor kit. The glitter is so pigmented and sparkly, it really catches the light. The beauty of this lip kit is that it is simple to use and the results are amazing. I’ve even used this as eye glitter. For just £3.50 on sale this kit is just to die for!
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.
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.
Japonesque is a Japanese inspired cosmetics brand. This week I’m using Japonesque Pro Performance Lip Lacquer Liquid Lipstick. This vibrant glossy lipstick comes with a tapered brush that gives you absolute precision. I purchased Shade 4 on sale from http://www.asos.com for only £7.00! To get this vibrant colour, I applied a few coats. This look is perfect for festival season.
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!
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.
