I’m just sat with a cup of tea, listening to the rain pouring down outside watching Adele at Glastonbury for the 4th time (how amazing is she!!) and thought I’d pour my heart out about my new lip obsession!
When I was younger, I was all about the red lip. It was my trade mark to the extent that after 2 weeks of my school teacher’s persistent nagging to take it off, they accepted that it wasn’t going anywhere. Despite this, in the last year or so I’ve been expanding my lipstick/gloss/cream collection and some nudey nudes have made an appearance. I’ve also veered away from matte lipsticks (which I used to be obsessed with & have been playing around with lip creams and liquid lipsticks.
My current faves are the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. The feeling of these on your lips and the consistency is to die for, they feel SO luxurious & OMG they are such a bargain at £5.50 in Boots. I love how compact and small they are, so perfect for throwing in your bag/pocket on the go and also so good for travelling – you can definitely justify taking along 3 0r 4 for a week away hah!
They come in SO MANY different shades. My favourite 2 (so far) are Stockholm and Milan. Stockholm is a gorgeous brown toned nude and is so good for every day wear. Milan is a much brighter pinky colour and is so perfect for summer. They have some serious lasting power considering the price (unless, like me, you’re partial to a gigantic burger, then it just ends up all over the bun) and when they do start to wear off, they don’t leave any noticeable lines around your lips, nor do they crack and crease. This also makes it so easy to re-apply.
These matte lip creams have stolen the show, beauty wise, this month so I’m off to Boots to pick up a few more, yay!
I hope you’ve had a great weekend & enjoyed watching all the Glastonbury highlights (or if you were lucky enough, are now recovering from the epic mud bath itself)
Bye for now,
