The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #8

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #8

Welcome to the eighth episode of ‘The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick’! I am on the hunt… the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick that is ‘MLBB’ or ‘my lips but better’. You know, the sort of colour that looks from a distance like you’re not wearing lipstick, like you just have naturally pink, plump perfect lips. The sort of colour you can just slick on from the tube and doesn’t need painstaking application with liner and lipbrush. The sort of colour that looks like ‘my lips, but better’. Today I am reviewing MAC Frost Lipstick in Angel. I love MAC make-up, I love the wide choice of lipstick colours that they have available and I love the way that the testers are displayed in the shop so that you can see the real colour of each lipstick and try it out. I like to do my research before purchasing a new MAC lipstick, searching on the internet for swatch images and reviews of colours that I think...

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #7

Welcome to the seventh episode of ‘The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick’! I am on the hunt… the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick that is ‘MLBB’ or ‘my lips but better’. You know, the sort of colour that looks from a distance like you’re not wearing lipstick, like you just have naturally pink, plump perfect lips. The sort of colour you can just slick on from the tube and doesn’t need painstaking application with liner and lipbrush. The sort of colour that looks like ‘my lips, but better’. Today I am reviewing Longlasting Lipstick in 08 Colour Crush from Essence. Essence is a budget make-up brand that has only recently been launched in the UK in Wilkinsons stores, you might want to read my recent post about the UK launch of Essence Make-Up. The black bullet tube is simple and sleek and has a coloured pink band around the centre that matches the colour of the lipstick. I think that for a budget lipstick this one looks...

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #6

Welcome to the sixth episode of ‘The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick’! I am on the hunt… the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick that is ‘MLBB’ or ‘my lips but better’. You know, the sort of colour that looks from a distance like you’re not wearing lipstick, like you just have naturally pink, plump perfect lips. The sort of colour you can just slick on from the tube and doesn’t need painstaking application with liner and lipbrush. The sort of colour that looks like ‘my lips, but better’. Today I am reviewing Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in Shade 101 from Rimmel London. I’ve not actually used a lot of Rimmel products recently despite them being one of my favourite brands when I was a teenager. The red bullet tube is simple and has Kate Moss’ signature printed in black on the lid. I don’t really feel that Rimmel products look very premium, but I do find that the packaging is well made and sturdy...

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #5

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #5

Welcome to the fifth episode of ‘The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick’! I am on the hunt… the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick that is ‘MLBB’ or ‘my lips but better’. You know, the sort of colour that looks from a distance like you’re not wearing lipstick, like you just have naturally pink, plump perfect lips. The sort of colour you can just slick on from the tube and doesn’t need painstaking application with liner and lipbrush. The sort of colour that looks like ‘my lips, but better’. Did you know that the average woman ingests 2.4 kilos of lipstick in her lifetime? Ewwww! Some lipsticks contain small amounts of lead which is poisonous, and other chemicals, so today I am reviewing Living Nature lipstick in Precious* that contains only 100% natural ingredients. Living Nature is a New Zealand beauty brand that uses only 100% natural ingredients, preservatives and fragrances in all of its products. This is the fifth lipstick that I have tested as part of...
