This was one of the snags of my boots bargain bucket haul. I don't wear lip products often, and if I do, I usually rub them off in angst half way through the day. They smudge, are sticky, and generally just feel like I've got something on my lips that shouldn't be there! Although I've managed to master the 'you must touch your face in a certain way as to not ruin the makeup', rubbing eyes is definitely out, but I've never been able to resist the urge to lick my lips? And don't get me started on the taste - sorry lip drawer, you are not getting the loving you deserve.
BASICALLY, if I decide a lip product is a favourite, and worth the sacrifice/is no sacrifice, it is AmBlog hitting news. Said lipstick is the Loreal Caress in 'Tempting Lilac '101''. don't be put off by the lid, and name, this is a gorgeous pink lipstick. A definite purple/blue hue, but still a soft-bright shade, that just amps up the natural pigment of my lips. On the same theme as the Revlon lip butters, these are ever so soft/balm like textures, with medium payoff, which is a good place for me to start. I agree with all the say on the website, which is rare! There is no mention of staying power, and I would say 3ish hours at a push, but for the summer, it isn't criteria top of the list. At £7.99 originally (though I managed a pound, score), this is one I think is worth the money. They don't scrounge on product, and I've yet to see a colour like it elsewhere, that is so flattering mid lip.
I'm not so mad on the other colour I have, Nude Ingenue '501', purely as the peach nude thing has never worked for me - silly to think it would start now!
Formula still trumps Revlon's hybrid though - BIG statement.
Unfortunately, these shades are now discontinued, and priced at a whopping £15.78 on amazon! Damn, 'Lovely Rose' and 'Innocent Pink' are SO tempting - I'll let you deicde whether the splurge is worth more than a MAC lip indulgence.
Makeup is my vice in the sea of practice papers and pre-releases,
who knew my daily face routine could be such a luxury
