Day Two!

Neverland 6pcs long lasting waterproof liquid makeup from Amazon, I got this on Prime for  £5.49.

So buying this is was convinced that they would not be very good but I really wanted a green lipstick to play and I just can’t resist buying daft things on line whilst the kids watch something on Netflix. The joy of Prime is you get them the next day and when they arrived in just had to see what they were like, quite shocked to say all but one had amazing colour the blue is very patchy but the others I had high hopes for.

I new I was going out yesterday so I decided to try the raspberry coloured one, in the picture I have two coats on it is a little dry putting it on and you don’t get a lot on the applicator so it was not quick and easy.

It is so dry on the lipstick that you are aware all the time that you have it on and feels a little ruff on the lips but not enough to stop me and make me change it because I don’t have another colour like this so I will suffer.

The biggest suprise was that after being on 3 hours as well as coffee and lunch my lipstick was still on just a little in the centre had rubbed off (please excuse the pic the light was rubbish)

I am so shocked at how well they stayed in place that I can even forgive the fact that they feel so dry.

I have tried the green as well as this lasted as well but I found that it did have one major down side they are really hard to get off the lip I ended up using coconut oil and it still left a stain around the edges of my lips not a great look with the green.

All in all if you are willing to have dry lips and can get the stuff off they are worth a go just be careful with the edges.

Day one

BINKY London £2 each at my local CO-OP.

So I decided to start with one of my most affordable finds and one of my most surprising finds I just nipped into my local CO-OP for milk and as I walked round I found that they have a small makeup section almost everything is £2 each so I grabbed a few bits, I can never just get what I went into the shop for, they did not have any testers so I just had to guess what the colours would be like and went for a pink and a nude as they are my go to colours. When I opened them I found that the colours are not quite as they look on the label the nude is more of a soft chocolate brown and the pink was much softer than the bright pink label had made me think it was but still both lovely wearable colours. I have tried both of them and the formula is much the same on both, soft and smooth and go on very even leaving a pretty soft colours with a high shine. 

I did have to add a lipliner as the first time it did bleed out a little as it’s such a soft formula. In fact without the lipliner I found that it ended up all over the outside of the lipline, it does have a slightly greasy feel on the lipstick and that is not nice when it starts to bleed out it is not a bad feeling lipstick and once the shine is gone it leaves a lovely colour behind that lasted quite well in fact it was a good 2/3 hours before it needed retouching.

The second pic is taken after 2 hours and a cup of coffee or three.

Not a bad place to start this little adventure into affordable lipstick and if you find it in your local shop it’s definitely worth a go if you don’t mind playing guess the colour but it’s a perfect handbag lipstick one for when you just need to grab something but forgot to pick up your favorite lippy.

Let’s start on a fun note

So as I been slightly obsessed with makeup since I was a teenager but my lipstick collection has always been slightly out of control though high end lipstick is amazing and I do own and use it my everyday options tend to be drugstore and affordable, so to start this blog is thought it might be fun to do eleven days of affordable lipstick. From drugstore to supermarket and online to pound shops and see how well they do.

So each day from tomorrow I will upload a review of a new lipstick.

Hope to see you around
