Hello my little buttons!
Thought I’d share with you some of my favourite cheapy lip products! Firstly my favourite lipliners!
They’re by a company called Essence! Available in Wilko Stores or at http://www.wilko.com these babies are £1 each and come in a bunch of colours. Here are a couple I love! They are sooo creamy and smooth they feel lovely on the lips. They’re long lasting and fairly smudge proof. I tend to wear them all over the lips as the colours are so pretty and they last so well. Best lip liners ever.
I’ve mentioned this little lippie before, Makeup Gallery at Poundland.i have colour 06 natural pink. I can’t vouch for the whole range but this colour in particular is gorgeous, a real pretty nudie pink. Lasts a good couple of hours and leaves a light stain which I love in lipsticks. Feels similar to a tinted balm but a bit creamier.
A recent find, Freedom Makeup London http://www.freedommakeuplondon.com these are also only £1! Really nice formula glides on the lips, doesn’t stick to my dry bits so started carrying them in my bag as they’re just so convenient! The top shade is pink lust the bottom is whispers. They last well and again leave a slight stain. A new summer fave for sure. They also come in tonnes of colours there’s one for everyone!

hello my little buttons!
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
Hello my little buttons!
I was sent these amazing Star Wars themed lipsticks by Freedom Makeup London who launched on June 5th this year (2015) the colours are crazy! When I swatched them I was hypnotised by the uniqueness of the shades, the grey/silver both have different coloured shimmers which sadly my cameras not picking up that well! The purple almost glows and the gold was so opaque it blew my mind. I realise how dramatic I am being but they really were eye catching! Today I tested them all out on my lips:
The first white shade is called ‘storm trooper’ I used a white eyeliner to line my lips and fill them in before applying the lipstick. The formula is so smooth and creamy and applied beautifully. It looks loads better with the White liner underneath to smooth it all over. The gold shade is called ‘space luxe’ this was a joy to use feels like a lip balm rather than a lipstick yet it’s so opaque and metallic in the light it looks awesome! The next shade is ‘sky walker’ same formula as the gold easy and smooth to apply with a beautiful blue/purple tone to it. Next we have ‘the sith’ a dark metallic grey also with blue/purple undertones, I used a black eyeliner to line my lips before applying which really gave it some more dimension. Needed a few layers but built up beautifully. The last shade we have ‘far away’ a metallic purple which I feel speaks for it’s it’s just gorgeous!
Over all I’m amazed these are only £1 each, as well as feeling comfy on the lips they apply beautiful and I’ve never seen colours like it. If this is your thing or you feel like experimenting, go check out http://www.freedommakeuplondon.com
