MeMeMe – Lip Glide in English Rose

MeMeMe – Lip Glide in English Rose

It’s only a couple of weeks ago that I reviewed a selection of eye and brow make-up from MeMeMe, today I bring you their new Lip Glide chubby pencil in English Rose*. Available in 5 different shades Lip Glide is a long lasting, ultra-high pigment lip pencil with a matte-velvet finish. English Rose is a pretty rose mid-pink shade, I really like it as it’s not too bright or sugary. The colour feels soft and smooth on the lips, it’s not as sheer and glossy as I usually like, but it certainly doesn’t make the lips feel dry or wrinkled like some matt lipsticks can do after a couple of hours. You can see from the swatch image above that the finish is quite matt, and it is very highly pigmented, but being quite a natural shade of pink it doesn’t look too bright when it’s on the lips. I really like this lip colour, and being in a chubby pencil format it’s much easier to apply than a...

MUA – Power Pout in Irreplaceable

MUA – Power Pout in Irreplaceable

There are so many chubby lip pencils about at the moment that it’s difficult to know which ones to choose. I love Clinique’s Chubby Sticks but they’re a bit pricey so I thought I would check out MUA’s value offering in the chubby pencil market. I have already reviewed MUA’s Power Pout pencil in chic nude Rendezvous, you can read that here. Irreplaceable is a bright fuchsia pinky purple colour, it is really vibrant. I was a bit unsure about whether I could wear something so bright when I first tried it out, but as it is fairly glossy and sheer this helps to tone down the colour a little. It is lovely and buttery and moisturising and doesn’t dry out when on the lips – it stills feels soft and moisturising hours after applying it. It will be great in the Winter to help protect your lips from the cold weather. You can clearly see from the image below how glossy this colour is. The silver end of...

MUA – Power Pout in Rendezvous

MUA – Power Pout in Rendezvous

There are so many chubby lip pencils about at the moment that it’s difficult to know which ones to choose. I love Clinique’s Chubby Sticks but they’re a bit pricey so I thought I would check out MUA’s value offering in the chubby pencil market. MUA describe Rendezvous as a ‘chic nude’. I did think it would be more of a beigey colour from the outside of the stick, but it is more of a mid-pinky brown colour. It is lovely and sheer and moisturising and doesn’t dry out when on the lips – it stills feels soft and moisturising hours after applying it. It will be great in the Winter to help protect your lips from the cold weather. The silver end of the Power Pout pencil twists to dispense more of the pencil at the other end. It has a lovely peppermint flavour that reminds me of those round chocolates you get at Christmas that have little crunchy pieces of peppermint inside and are wrapped in gold foil. It...
