Hi my loves!!
Hope your all having a lovely weekend! It's been a pretty quiet one for me. I'm still not feeling quite right since being ill yesterday, so I'm taking it easy! My friend asked me earlier 'what is the one piece of makeup you can't live without?' Frankly, going without all my make up would be frightening, but it did get me thinking. For me I could not go with some form of lip stick/gloss. My lips have always been quite dry and they don't have alot of colour to them, so I'm always looking for a lip colour that lasts. I don't want to be applying lip gloss every 10 minutes! The three lip colours I'm going to review today are ones I have on the go at the moment.
First off we have Maybelline Super Stay 10hr Tinted Gloss in Lasting Pink. My first impression is that it applies nicely and dries to feel like you don't have anything on your lips at all. It feels quite natural and looks it too. The Lasting Berry is a darker pink than I normally go for, but it gives the lips a just bitten look (ooer!). I doesn't last 10 hours but is still pretty good in my opinion. Bought for about £7 from boots.
The second lip stain is also from Maybelline and is the Color Sensational in Tender Rose. I actually bought this before the Super Stay Gloss, but was very disappointed with it. The first thing I didn't like was that it's like a felt pen and wasn't nice to apply. I found the colour didn't last very long and just made my lips feel really cracked and dry. I also don't have a picture to show you how this one looks on because the pen dried out after about a week! I don't know if I was just unlucky and had a bad pen, but I wouldn't waste your money on this one! Bought from boots for about £6.
Lastly is my all time favourite lip colour! I can not recommend it more! It's the Collection 2000 Cream Puff in Cotton Candy. I know this isn't exactly a lip stain or tint, but it lasts just as long as any lip stain out there! It goes on really creamy and dries to a soft matt finish. It also smells really nice and sweet, which I think might put some people off, but I love it! Bought from Boots for about £3! Which is an absolute bargain in my books!
Have you got a favourite lip product? What is the one beauty product you couldn't live without? I would love to know!
I'm going to have a stall at a Vintage and Craft Fair in Cardiff tomorrow, so will be taking lots of photo's to do a post on it soon :)
Thanks for stopping by,
