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.

Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet

I am a massive fan of Urban Decay cosmetics, they have funky packaging, great palettes and I love the use of sparkle, glimmer and glitter within their products.

The amazing eye pencil you NEED in your life!

The amazing eye pencil you NEED in your life!

I am a massive fan of Urban Decay cosmetics, they have funky packaging, great palettes and I love the use of sparkle, glimmer and glitter within their products. Plus Urban Decay is a member of Cruelty Free International, meaning that they have acquired the ‘Leaping Bunny’ stamp and their products are not tested on animals. One of my absolute favourite Urban Decay products (and possibly one of my favourite ever make-up products of all time!) is 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils come in over 40 different shades and I love that so many of them are really bright. There really is a colour to suit everyone, whether you prefer something understated or you love to experiment with a rainbow of shades. This is only a small selection of the shades that are available and I’ve tried quite a few of them over the past few years. Just look at the turquoise (Deep End), blue (Chaos) and Purple (Asphyxia), they’re simply stunning! The pencils have a lovely soft...
