Four Recent Lip Product Purchases

Monday, July 15, 2013

Okay so I am just going to apologise in advance for the bad quality of these pictures, I'm still trying to figure out what is the best way to take pictures like these and in what setting etc, it can only get better i suppose (and hope).

I bought these items in the last month, some from superdrug and some from fragrance direct. If i had to pick one make up product that I am the most obsessed with it would have to be lip products, especially lipsticks. With everything else i find it kind of unnecessary to own tons of the same thing but in my opinion you can never have too many lipsticks, there's just so much variety to chose from.

Superdrug

Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in 035 Candy Apple



I bought this because I heard really good reviews and up until point of purchase I didn't own a red lipstick. I was kind of scared at the thought of something so bright as a red lipstick but I'm so glad I bought it, I think it really suits my skin tone. It's not a dark red it is very much as the name describes it a 'Candy' red. The formula of this product is so good, it applies on the lips so smooth and you can feel it moisturising your lips. The colour seems to stay pretty well too. I'd even go as far as to say this is my favourite lip product and I will definitely be purchasing more of the Lip Butters.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 015 Cherish Devotion



I bought this product for the same reason as the lip butter and I was not left feeling disappointed. Firstly I love the colour of this balm stain and it applies true to colour on the lips. The texture is good, not as moisturising as the lip butter and it feels more thick on the lips but nonetheless i still really like it. The colour stays really well and I love how the product has a mint scent, it is quite refreshing. I also love the packaging of the product and the way that you only have to twist the bottom to get more product.



Fragrance Direct

Maybelline Colour Sensational in 380 Sweet Bordeaux



I really love the colour of this lipstick, it's very pigmented and it's a dark berry colour but applies lighter than the colour shows in the stick of the lipstick. The texture of this product feels quite moisturising and stays on the lips for awhile. I love the packaging of this product and i really like the product itself. The only problem I have is that you have to make you sure you reapply this after eating because i've found it to tend to settle within the cracks of your lips which can be frustrating.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Popstick in 060 Citrus Slice



I bought this under the impression that it was a lipstick like the other Maybelline product I purchased but I think it is different, as it's name suggests being a 'popstick' even though on the fragrance direct website both products were under the same name. I'm not really sure how I feel about this product, it doesn't seem to do anything, it has barely any colour and just gives a slight sheen to the lips. It does have a lovely 'candy-fruit' scent though and feels quite moisturising on the lips but that's about it really.

  8. Great buys, the colora are lovely! But i'll keep away from the Citrus Slice - i think i'll just stick to vaseline since it pretty much serves the same purpose hehe.
