Lippy Love ~ Little Mix


Ummm welcome back?!

Okay so I haven’t properly posted in a while because I have been completely working my bum off in school (and the work load is only growing L) and spending my weekends mainly sleeping- except the past two Saturdays, where I have been shopping with my Mum and ended up buying myself a fair few new make-up goodies! I have separated those into different blog posts, and they shall be up soon.

So I wanted to talk about a new ‘feature’ I am putting in called ‘Lippy Love’, where each week I will basically go and talk about a type of lip product I either just purchased, or I have used in the week or I simply love!

So the products that I will be reviewing for Lippy Love this week are the Lipsticks designed by Little Mix for Collection Cosmetics.

When Little Mix first announced they were releasing a make-up range in August/September I wasn’t that interested, purely because when I saw the products online before I went in town and just thought ‘meh’. But then I suddenly remembered reading a tweet or comment Perrie made to a fan saying where her lipstick was from, and I liked the colour.

To put simply, I went into Superdrug with the intention to meet my friends and purchase Perrie’s lipstick, since I didn’t have a colour similar, it seemed like a logical plan – WRONG.

I left town with all the lipsticks except Jesy’s (which I ordered online as soon as I got home, after checking the second Superdrug and both Boots drugstores in town!!) as well as two new mascaras. Within 3 days I had all four lipsticks, and voila, my collection was complete, and now I think- why did I only want to buy one? -Having since had so much use out of these and liking loving the products!

Anyway- the review!!



All the colours are wonderful and the photos simply do no justice, especially for the likes of Jade’s lipstick, which has both nude and pink undertones, and looks lovely with most colours!

Jesy

Jesy’s lipstick is a bright shocking red, the type of colour I love in a lipstick, as I have a very similar skin tone to Perrie, and bright lips tend to work for me!
The colour lasted absolutely ages, although like most red lipsticks, if you eat/drink something, you do need to re-apply else you end up with a lip outline!

I love this lip colour because it goes with where you want a statement, and for me, I like wearing red with either Black & White or Blue & White, both of which work perfectly well!

Perrie

This is most definitely my favourite for more reasons than one- since this was the lipstick I originally wanted and lead me to buying the others. The colour is similar to a deep violet, but if applied thickly, I have found fades to a lovely lighter shade, either way, lasting for ages without having to worry about reapplying!

I have found this colour works really well with my Porcelain skin tone (as it did with Perrie's), (fun fact- according to my Nan I am the spitting image of her), I don’t see it, but if this is true, I am awaiting my 1D fiancé ;)

Leigh-Anne

This was the colour I was most unsure about, as I thought before I tested the colours, why would they have two shades of red in such a small collection?
This colour is sort of a deep red with tiny hints of burgundy, but if applied lightly, blends lovely with Jesy’s for an ombre lip look (which I hear is very popular this year!)

I found this was the colour that lasted the least out of the four, nevertheless I got plenty of wear out of the colour, which looked lovely in October and November on a dry, crisp winter’s day.­

­­Jade

Last but most certainly not least is Jades neutral lipstick, as I mentioned above which features pinks/brown/neutral undertones, making it a lovely colour on a natural makeup look day.

This colour without a shadow of a doubt lasted the longest compared to the others, this is probably because it’s not as bright as the others, and blends with your natural lip colour very well.

***SNEAK PEEK*** This lippy will be mentioned in a Tanya Burr product review soon- exciting!!!


Overall, I would give these lipstick 7.5 out of 10, this may seem fairly low considering all the positive feedback I have given it, but I promise they are definitely worth it!

You can purchase these products from Superdrug, Boots and Collection in store and online J


Well thanks for that, sorry for such a lengthy post however many days later than planned!
