I can’t help but try and find ‘the perfect’ of each makeup product. I’ve found the perfect mascara, the perfect eyeliner, i’ve found the perfect contour and i’ve found the perfect brow powder. So, on Thursday I made it my goal to find the perfect nude lipstick for my skintone.
So I bought 5 lip colours and 3 balms.
I’ll start with the goods: The Malibu Lip Balms are so nourishing for my lips. They make them so smooth. The flavours aren’t much to be honest, but that might just be that I can’t taste them or smell them properly as I have a cold! I bought this 3 pack from a bargain shop for like £1.50 & i’m so happy I did!
Next up is Maybelline’s colour sensational lipstick in the shade 710 sultry sand
This sells at boots for £6.99. I originally thought that this was going to make me look like a zombie looking really ill. I apply a little bit of this onto my lips and it gives just the perfect amount of colour. This just completes a natural look off! I love the packaging of this and the way it feels on my lips – nice & light/ moisturising.
w7 Lip Twister in PINK
w7 is a smaller brand that i’ve liked previously, so when I saw this lip liner in a nice nude shade I was keen to see if it was actually a nice nude liner!! 100% happy with this! This is my lips but better. It matches my lip colour and fills in my icky lip scar! This costed me about £1.99. It glides onto the lips smoothly and so far has lasted well on the lips!
Beauty UK lip lust in no.3 date night
This is the best lip product that I have ever bought. It was £1. Let’s just read that again and absorb the information. It was £1. This has a spongey applicator and you squeeze the tube and a bit of colour and gloss comes out. I had glosses with a passion. They’re ALWAYS too sticky or too pigmented or whatever…. This? This is perfect. This, to me, feels as light as vaseline on the lips. The shade is a perfect neutral colour for my lips so I will 100% be wearing this everyday!
Next up are 2 MUA products. the Power Pout Acrylic in the shade unwrapped
which sells for £3. I applied this normally, like how I would any other lip product, and this was horrible! Far too thick, far too pigmented and far too cakey! But, I find that when I am wearing lipbalm underneath it and dab 1 or 2 dots of the product onto my lips and blend it in with the lip balm using my finger. This makes it look ok – i’m not fussed, but I do try and find a plus side to all products I buy as I hate waste!
Lastly is the lipstick in ‘barely there‘. Do not buy this. This is disgusting. This is thick and chalky and pale and goes into all the fine lines in your lips. Do not buy this. For £1 it’s not too much of a miss, but I am very disappointed in MUA as I usually love their products!
So those are all my new lippies! Any that you recommend I try? If so i’d love to hear about them!
Sorry for the lack of posts, I swear i’ll try to do more!
