I have been loving these!! I bought them months ago (3 because I was going to blog them but.. never got around to it) and so what would have initially been a swatch and first impressions post is now a full on rave. I’ve mentioned these on YouTube and others have told me they don’t get a long with them quite as well but having played around with them for a while now I think a couple of tweaks should solve any issues if you want to make them work.
Number one, they are not forgiving, a good lip scrub/balm ahead of application will do wonders. I didn’t do either ahead of taking these pictures so they are warts and all and some pick up on flakiness more than others. Number two, they will last longer and have a bolder look over a lip liner.. but that’s not exactly news, is it?
They take a while to ‘dry down’ and never feel matte so if you’re a die-hard liquid lipstick fan these may not be for you but if you’re looking for something a little more casual looking that’s comfortable to wear, I personally really, really like them. They don’t last as long as a regular liquid lipstick, you’re looking at 2 hours for top up but they layer nicely and the peachy “Hollywood Beige” is a really easy to wear one since the wear isn’t quite so obvious. One I’ve reached for a lot lately for work and over a lip liner it’s something I’d wear on a night out with some confidence that it would look okay while drinking and not constantly checking my makeup.
Don’t forget to join me on twitter tonight at 8pm using the hashtag #oldschoolblogging
Tonight we’re going to be talking about Netflix (basically the death of YouTube imo) as well as what magazine features we really miss and whether the declutter culture is a direct result of the YouTube hauls of yester year.
*I had to change the hashtag cause literally nobody knew what OG meant.. I’m an idiot!
