Lip products from Lord & Berry
I first heard of Lord & Berry a year or so ago and I was really tempted by the sleek black packaging and wearable shades. They seemed to drop off my radar a bit after that though, and it’s only recently that I’ve started to hear about them again.
I was given the opportunity to try out a selection of their lip products and I’ve been using them for about the past 3 weeks. Read on to see what I think:
First up it’s the 20100 Lipstick Pencils*, these are available in either Matte or Shiny and I’ve tried out one of each. The pencils are a bit slimmer than the usual chunky crayons that are popular at the moment and this makes it a bit easier to apply the colour straight from the pencil – although you could use a lip brush but it can be a bit tricky to coax enough colour off the slim nib and onto the brush.
The pink one is called Flush, it’s a mid strawberry red shade and it’s one of the Shiny crayons. It has a nice gloss to it, I really like this in a crayon as so many of them can feel drying and matt on the lips. This is a bit more red than I’d usually wear (I always play it safe and stick to pale pinks or nudes) but I think it really suits me and I’m really enjoying wearing something a bit different – it’ll be great for the Autumn too.
The darker one is called Prelude, it’s a vampish plummy brown and it’s one of the Matte crayons. Despite being a matt finish it still feels nice and creamy on the lips and isn’t drying at all. As with the previous crayon it’s not the sort of shade I’d normally wear – it’s much too dark – but I still felt that it really suited me and I felt quite vampish and confident wearing it!
This is Skin Lip Gloss* in shade #4850 Star Mauve, it’s a bright pink – very shiny and reflective (if you look at it really closely you can see tiny glittery particles inside). The aspect that I enjoy most about this lip gloss is that it feels more like a glossy lipstick on the lips, it’s smooth and silky and not gloopy or sticky at all. Plus it stains the lips so if the gloss has worn off after eating or drinking your lips still stay pretty until you have the time to escape to the toilet and reapply the gloss.
I’ve been wearing this Star Mauve lip gloss teamed with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Deviant, a shimmery dark blue eyeliner, for a modern twist on a classic 80s look.
Overall I’ve been pretty impressed with the Lord & Berry lip products, the formulations are really great and feel premium on the lips, plus there are no over-the-top synthetic flavours or scents associated with them either which can often put me off a lipstick.
