I saw these little beauties eyeing me up recently- you know how Joey says “how you doin” from Friends, yeah they were doing that to me. I was drawn in by the beautiful deep colours. Once I swatched the colours, I found it difficult to pick the ones I wanted, I don’t know about you, I found some of the colours to be very alike. Any how I picked the four colours I liked the most. These little babies are priced at £4.99 each.
I picked the colours Vino Tinto, Fired Up, Birthday Suit and Velvet Slipper. My favourite out of all four has to be Fired Up. The picture is not doing it justice, it is a deeper ruby red colour. They are quite easy to apply as they are quite liquidy, but dry matte quite fast as well. I found wearing them on their own was quite drying, so I did put on some lip balm before applying them. Lasting power, they last a good couple of hours, I would say about 4-6 hours, depending on what you are doing. I think it might also depend on the colours you are wearing as well. Two things I noticed with these, one, Fired Up- when I was taking it off (I used a cotton pad with some micellar water) it gathered up into these little balls, the other 3 colours did not do this. Two Birthday Suit has a different doe foot applicator, the other three have the traditional one you get with lip glosses, whereas Birthday Suit has a longer flatter applicator.
I really like the colours I picked and cannot wait to carry on using them. Having said that, I have a feeling that Vino Tinto, will soon disappear into my mom’s handbag – she loves this colour.
