I'm Lou from Lou Loves Beauty and I have the pleasure of being your host today. The lovely Stacey has asked me to do a guest post for her, so here I am....hello! I love reading Stacey's blog and one of my favourite posts are her lip six, so I thought I would give you my take on her popular weekly post.
A lot of these lippy's are new additions and same are firm favourites that I've had in my stash for a while.
First up is...Revlon Lip Butter in 'Juicy Papaya', is a beautiful peachy coral shade that has been a favourite of mine for ages. It's my go to lipstick when I just want a little bit of colour and some moisture adding to my lips.
Another colour on the coral spectrum is the Revlon Lipgloss in ' Coral reef'. This offers a bit more colour compared to the lip butter and again is a gorgeous coral which delivers fantastic shine and juiciness to the lips, (sorry if that s sounds a bit provocative but I couldn't think of another word!)
The next four shades are my new additions. The Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms have had some serious coverage on the blogosphere and I resisted the temptation to buy them until now. The two colours I picked up were 'Showy Flamboyant', a blue toned pink that adds a vibrant pop of colour to the lips. My favourite out of the two is 'Unapologetic', a bright coral pink (noticing a theme here?), this is more on the pinky side of coral, but I love it! Both of the balms delivers a fantastic opaque finish that lasts a good 8 hours on me. When first applied they are very moisturising which is surprising for a matte lipstick, they tend to dry out towards the end of the day but I can forgive them as all my matte lipsticks tend to do this and these are a lot cheaper. If you haven't picked any up I highly recommend you do so, they're fab!
The last two shades are from Mac and have found their way into my collection recently. 'Lickable' is a gorgeous blue toned pink that verges on the purple side. A crème sheen finish that is moisturising and long wearing. I love this colour as it adds a vibrant pop of colour to the lips without being too daring and " in ya face".
Finally is Mac 'Red'. I love a good red lip and even though the Christmas party season is behind us I still like to rock this every now and then. It's just perfect for me and what I would call a true red shade, adding that bit of Hollywood glamour to any look.... perfect!
