Another lip post today, too much? Well there’s just the one swatch today instead of 7, don’t worry. This is another product I picked up in New York however the range is now readily available in the UK and I wanted to wait until everyone could get their hands on it to let you know my thoughts. Initially I was disappointed because something told me this was a stain when in fact it’s a liquid lipstick.. I’m not sure I’d have bought it had I known. I’m not a huge gloss gal, they’re messy and as I hammered home yesterday I prefer a more smudge proof matte pout. It’s really only the glossy stains that have turned me of late because they don’t budget but still give that shine.. this is not that. So bare in mind I was already a bit meh about this once I realised it wasn’t what I thought it was.. I tried it and pretty much wrote it off immediately as a streaky opaque gloss. I said as much when I filmed my haul video and put it away intending never to bring it out again but my friend came over and found it when she was rummaging through my stash and wanted to try it. It looked SO good on her that I had to give it another go and I have to say.. it’s really quite nice. I think my initial disappointment teamed with the harsh hotel bathroom lighting under which I tried it on totally clouded my objectivity and I’m so pleased that my friend pulled it out because I’m now considering picking up some more.
The formula is not at all sticky, it’s more on a translucent colour than opaque and full of sparkle to give that plumped up illusion.. for a gloss they are very nice. As I said I’m not a huge fan of gloss.. it gets in your hair and all over your face but if I was to wear one (with my hair up of course) it would be something from this new range, I will be looking for another, bolder colour soon.. suggestions welcome!
