Here’s a quick review on some of my all time favourite lipsticks. These were sent to me by my lovely American friend after I told her I couldn’t find a comfy matte formula lipstick. Matte lips are everywhere, with every brand creating their own matte/velvet lip products. I have tried sooo many this year I had nearly given up. I tend to be fairly lazy with lip products, I enjoy tinted balms, stains and nudes that are fairly easy to top up through the day. The ones I have tried are either super drying, as in I could be lost in the saharah and have more hydration in my lips, or when they fade, which granted does take ages, just look patchy and awful. For some people this is not a problem and will happily touch up for that bold beautiful lip. Me however, it’s just not realistic. Until I tried these, I have never in my life found such a wonderful formula. It’s smooth and creamy, not so creamy it slides everywhere but just enough to make application easy and it to feel gorgeous on the lips, as well as gliding over any dry patches. They smell divine, and last for hours even after eating and drinking. I didn’t believe it till I tried it, every colour is on my makeup list for the next time I go to the USA.
I love the packaging it’s pretty to look at and sturdy I’ve never lost a lid on my handbag. The colours she chose for me are also beautiful, the purple is rich and a great pop of colour. The pink in bright but not so bright I feel daft wearing it day to day, it’s made me braver with pinks, it’s so comfy on and I know it’s not going anywhere I can enjoy the colour without worrying. If you can get your hands on these you won’t regret it. xxx
