Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lip in Tulle

Hello beauties,

My love of matte liquid lipsticks is not waning at all, it’s my favourite texture as I detest gloss! I hadn’t tried Colourpop before, but it is a brand I’ve seen on Instagram a lot.

The colour is called Tulle, I love these deeper colours for this time of year. I don’t wear a lot of eye makeup so I do love a bold lip and this one definitely ticks the box for me. I found it really easy to apply, I make sure I have time to apply with bolder colours so there is less chance for mistakes. The colour glides on smoothly and the pigment covers well. I only put on one layer which I did wonder why this didn’t last long.

Colourpop didn’t last long at all on me, it came off really easily on a spoon when I was stuffing the cream topping off a hot chocolate (so like the Morphe, Colourpop didn’t pass the hot chocolate test!!) and I was so disappointed! By the time I had finished my drink, the colour was practically all gone. There was a hint of colour left on my cloth when I removed my makeup when I got home, but I personally would have to reapply after eating or drinking. The reason I go for matte liquid as they are supposed to last (Max Factor Lipfinity and Maybelline 24hour Colourstay last until I want to take them off at the end of the day or evening) Colourpop didn’t hold up to my favourites. Of course if I layer then I am sure it will be more durable, but for me this is a lippy I would have to take out with me.

I bought mine from eBay and it was £2.99, I am all about the eBay bargains! (I know there are a lot of people that don’t recommend buying from eBay, I have been very lucky and always had genuine items apart from one instance. I have been buying from here from at least 8 years, being on such a limited budget sucks!) Neither Boots or Superdrug sell Colourpop in my town and I am not sure they do in Oxford so that’s why I bought online. Even though Tulle didn’t quite live up to my expectations, I would try the brand again.

Till next time,

Bagsy Wow Lips Full Colour Chubby Stick Ready To Wear

Hi beauties,

I have a gorgeous lip colour today, Wow Lips Full Colour Chubby Stick from Bagsy.

If you haven’t heard about Bagsy, they are a British brand, making capsule makeup pieces that are designed to fit into your handbag. Wow Lips was one of the options in my You Beauty Box, and lippies being my favourite makeup item after nail polish I chose this.

The colour is called Ready to Wear, it’s an unusual colour that doesn’t photograph true unfortunately. It’s a rosy-coral called Ready To Wear which is not a shade I would go for, however it is so beautiful I’m so glad I did.

Wow Lips is a moisturising lip colour, ingredients are: Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Octyldodecanol, Pentaerythriyl Tetraisostearate, Ceresin, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Mica, Paraffin, Isostearyl Isostearate, Cera Alba, Cera Microcristallina, Nylon-12, Aroma, Candelilla Cera, Tocopheryl Acetate, Silica, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Talc, Cera Carnauba, PEG-8, Synthetic Wax, Tocopherol, Propylene Carbonate, Polyethylene, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Limonene, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, BHT, CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 15850. 

On the website it states that Wow Lips is a gloss, it does have a sheen but not the traditional shiny texture a lipgloss has. It also lasted quite well, if you are eating and drinking you would need to reapply. 

I love this lip colour and another great thing is the price. It’s so affordable at £12.00, it feels lovely on your lips and feels luxury. Wow Lips is available in 3 shades from http://www.bagsybeauty.com

Till next time,

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm Plumberry Pop

image

Hi beauties,

Today I have Bare Minerals Pop Of Passion Plumberry Pop which is one of Bare Minerals beautiful, highly pigmented lip balms.

Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm is a beautiful lip stain which hydrates and makes your lips feel so comfortable. The pigment is amazing and really lasts, I’ve worn it a few times when I have been going out and it survives eating and drinking. If you want to top up the shine you will have to reapply it, but it will be a while before you have to do that. The base of Pop of Passion is Jojoba Oil, with Sunflower Seed Oil, Passion Fruit Seed Oil and Vitamin E. It certainly isn’t one of those stains that “sets” and you need a balm over the top, you are left with very comfortable feeling lips with a beautiful sheen.

I love this particular shade Plumberry Pop, there are 8 shades in total so I want to get some more of this gorgeous formula. However, I would wear this all year round, it really lifts my face and I think I do look better with it. I do feel more confident when wearing a bold lip colour even if I’m having a bad pain day and I feel like crap! It has been in my handbag pretty much since I bought it a couple of months ago, it’s been my go to lippie.

I really love this lip balm, I’ve used tinted balms before but I find that the tint is always wishy washy and you need so many layers to build up the colour. Pop Of Passion Lip Oil-Balm Plumberry Pop definitely packs a punch! There are a couple of more nude shades in the collection so you don’t have to have a bold colour if you don’t want to. They are available from http://www.bareminerals.co.uk and are £17.00.
