This month I thought I would do something a bit different with my monthly favourites. As you all probably know this month I have put myself on a beauty spending ban – I haven’t purchased any new beauty/make-up items and I have to be honest it has not been easy!
One real positive from this experience has been that I’ve been focusing on using and rediscovering beauty and make-up products I already have in my collection and the above three lip products I have been reaching for time and time again – all perfect colours for summer too!
These lip products are all great colours ranging from bold red to creamy glossy nude to beautiful perfect pink!
Rimmel – Lasting Finish by Kate: 37 Rosetto
This is my first ever Rimmel lipstick purchase and I just love the rich pigmented colour and the long lasting satin type texture and finish. This feels so comfortable on the lips and has a good wear time. This is a very bright, bold colour for me which I absolutely adore. It’s a perfect cool toned red with a subtle hint of coral – just stunning and beautiful for summer. Love it.
L’Oréal – Infallible Mega Gloss: I Got The Power 110 Cream Finish
I think these are a fairly new line of lipgloss for L’Oréal and feature the unique curved wand applicator – a similar wand used for the YSL Glossy Stains (which I have yet to try!). The curved wand hugs the lips perfectly to achieve a flawless look and applies just the right amount of product.
The gloss has a non-sticky consistency and creates a smooth, super glossy and hydrated finish. This gloss lasts well but does need topping up throughout the day – however the curved wand applicator makes this a complete breeze – no need for a mirror! Perfect.
Revlon – Colorburst Balm Stain: Honey 001
This is a twist up crayon type lip product which is perfect for on the go application. It applies and feels like a lipbalm on the lips – intensely hydrating and feels so comfortable.
This honey shade is a beautiful soft pink which looks really subtle and natural or can be built up for a more bold pop of pink!
This also lasted really well, it gradually fades to a pink stain on the lips and can be topped up to keep the slight glossy sheen to the lips.
Let me know what you think. Have you tried any of these stunning shades and finishes? I love reading and replying to your comments.
