I went a bit makeup mad the other day and bought a whole load of new makeup products to try out; most of which I have been dying to get my hands on – more to come soon 😛
So this morning I decided to try out the 4 new lipsticks I had bought and really see what I thought of them. Honestly, it took me a few hours to decide which one I wanted to wear today – probably going to be an everyday dilemma from now on!!
As usual I went a little Urban Decay mad, but I did also get one from YSL (Yves Saint Laurent) which is great as I don’t have many of their products! The ones are purchased are:-
I have this in ‘streak’ and it is beautiful. Its so soft on your lips, and really moisturising!
I have this in ‘Rock Steady’ which is a deep red, it lasts all day long and has a matte effect… perfect for the statement look!
I have the ‘through the looking glass’ lipstick in shade ‘Iracebeth’ which again has a red tone to it but a lot more pinky too. Its a matte lipstick again but it also so soft to apply.
This is so different to anything I have seen before. It looks like a nail varnish which threw me at first but then I realised its a liquid that you can use on both your cheeks and lips! Its super cool… I haven’t used it on my cheeks yet but it works on my lips beautifully. I have shade ’04 Orange Fougueux’ and to be honest it is a little too orange for my liking but a lovely summer shade and gives a smooth glossy effect.
So these are quite pricey for what you get at between £15 – £30 each, but from what I have seen so far they are worth it! So smooth, and easy to apply and all of them last a good few hours without having to re-apply! I wish I had bought a slightly different shade in the YSL one but summer is coming so you never know – I might have a change of heart!
I seem to have a bit of an Urban Decay passion at the moment! Does anyone else have a favourite brand, or know of any really good ones that I should take a look at?
