Finding it hard to concentrate? Revision bogging you down? Time to put on some lippy and make yourself feel 100% better!
This 'Moisture Shine' lipstick in the shade 'Cherry Red' amazes me. £1.99 worth of product and it stays for hours, wears off nicely and is super pigmented. A girl couldn't possibly go wrong by grabbing this from the stand.
I must admit it is a temporary cure but why not? Friday, for me, is not the day to let my hair down but I decided to dress up that simple 'work' outfit with a vibrant red lip.
This is the first lipstick I ever bought, all those years ago - well, not the exact same one because that would be pretty disgusting. But it is a brand that everybody tends to push aside and ignore. It's in pretty much every boots store, it's cheap, cheerful, and has some hidden gems. Who? Natural Collection of course! I'm pretty sure that none of their make up products are over £5 (correct me if I'm wrong), this obviously shows in the poor quality and cheap looking packaging but I think the actual product does itself justice.
Unlike many red lipsticks I've tried this isn't drying at all, in fact it's surprisingly moisturising and soft. I don't personally suffer from chapped or dry lips but I didn't use any base underneath, I just quickly smothered it on straight from the tube, et voila! One thing I do have to say is the 'shine' lasts for a short period of time, after about 5 minutes I would say it is more of a matte finish.
It's not to everyone's taste as I experienced earlier, one of my lovely male housemates reaction was 'WOAH, your lips are covered in blood' ... yes he is 23... yes he is childish... and yes his humour doesn't deserve a laugh but I just had to, it's something my 7 year old cousin would say!
