Lipstick Loving… (Review)

20 Jul

Hello, so I’m blogging twice in one day just to make up for my lack of blogging for the past few weeks. Anyway let’s get to the review!

I’ve always go for nude lips, or just stuck to my to the rose lips Vaseline, so I decided I wanted to had a different colour for my lips, so when I was in Boots I wanted to pick up a lipstick in a coral colour and thought I’d get a Revlon lip butter. When I’ve read the blogs these lips butters were meant to be really good but it didn’t really have the sort of bright summery colours so I didn’t really want to spend money on a lipstick I didn’t really want. So instead I picked up 2 other Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipsticks in ‘Electric Orange’ and ‘Shocking Coral’ which were £7.19 each but I got them on a buy one get one free offer (yay!)

The lipsticks do what they say on the packaging and are really vivid and have great pigment to them, even though they look like really bright colours they’re still a really wearable everyday colour. They also have a really nice soft and glossy finish to them as personally I really dislike matte colours as I love shine the shine glosses have, they’re also really super easy to apply, so they can be touched up in the day quickly and easily.




My favourite is the orange, and I’ve worn it everyday since I brought it! I’ve been wanting to buy an orange for a while because beauty vlogger and blogger Zoella looked so good in them and finally got one, I can see why she loved that colour! Even though the coral could is an everyday colour, I find it not as wearable due to the fact I feel it’s a bit full on for the majority of the relaxed style clothes I own, but I think it would nicer with a dresser make-up look instead of everyday for me.

Some cheeky swatches on my hand for you. (Please ignore the hairs. I don't have a hairy hand, I blame my camera's pretty amazing quality. Promise)

I really recommend you invest in some lipsticks if you haven’t got any or own very few, as you can pick up some great coloured ones from Boots (or other drugstores) at a really cheap price and they always have offers on. Once you wear lipstick you’ll never go back to a boring gloss you got in a magazine or for £1!

Is it normal to be in love with lipstick colours? Because right now I’m being weird and I’m in love.

    Those do seem like nice colors. I use both lipstick and lip gloss depending on my mood of the day.

  1. My Top 5 Spring Lipsticks… |High Street Spy| | High Street Spy - April 5, 2014

    […] Once again I love this one too, this one is a lot brighter though so it’s not as wearable as it looks best with nothing else going on make-up wise. Both these Maybelline lipsticks look really nice with olive skin tones like myself. You can read a full review of the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks here. […]

    […] These Maybelline lipsticks are my favourite drug store lipsticks ever, the colours are lovely, they go on lovely and are generally lovely. I go on about these all the time on my blog and I even wrote a review post on them when I picked them up last summer, which you can read here. […]
