Liquid Lipstick

*This post contains gifted items.

I remember receiving this parcel out of the blue. There was no note and no warning that I was going to be receiving a wide range of POP Beauty's Permanent Pout Lipsticks. The excitement came rushing over when I realised that this brand is owned by Pixi Beauty who I work with regularly on a gifted basis and that they wanted to work with me on their new brand.

I can't be the only one who saves certain lip colours for specific times of the year, right? Especially when it's a bright orange or pink shade.

MAC Matte Lipstick in The Fashion Flock
This is definitely one of my favourite shades to wear in the Summer. I never go abroad without it as I believe that this is the perfect Peachy shade that goes great with a tan.

If you are after the actual lipstick, I found it here. However, bear in mind that it might have been used/swatched or might be out of date if previously opened.

Similar shades:
Peach Petal by Origins £18.50 
Peachy Pink by Barry M £6.25
Skin Tight by Jeffree Star £16
Tropic Tonic by MAC £17.50

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in 714
I love the formula of Jeffree's liquid lipsticks as they are super comfortable on the lips and long-lasting. My only issue with this lipstick is that it comes out a bit patchy so I find myself layering it on to get the desired effect. It is also a limited edition and costs a lot if you try and buy it online, but you might be able to find it in your local Morphe store.

Similar shades:
Hippie Chic by NYX £6.58
Nippon by MAC £17.50

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Watermelon Soda
Another limited edition lippy by Jeffree - sorry guys but I can't stop myself from buying LE items! This colour looks great on all skin tones and lip sizes, so don't feel intimidated by it if you have thinner lips as I can guarantee it'll look gorgeous on you! I have found it for around £14.50 on Beautilysh which is an American beauty shopping site (similar to BeautyBay) from which I have shopped from before so it is 100% legitimate. You don't have to pay customs, the only fees that are added in the basket are VAT and shipping to the UK is free with orders over £28!

Similar shades:
Coral Crush by Dose of Colors £18
Crosswires by MAC £17.50

MAC Matte Lipstick in Darling Clementine
This Zac Posen Collaboration Limited Edition (sorry) lipstick is bloody gorgeous. Picture yourself on the beach in Crete or Rhodes, the sound of the sea and the smell of suncream and your third piña colada in your hand. You're wearing a gorgeous white swimsuit, a huge hat, sunglasses and this bright orange lipstick. It sounds perfect to me!

You can buy this lipstick for £30 here.
Similar shades:
Neon Orange by MAC £17.50
Cannes Do! by MAC £17.50

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Coral Fixation
I remember when my friend wore this lipstick to work one day and I just had to know what it was and if I could get my hands on it! To my surprise, she gave me the lipstick and said I could keep it because she liked the colour on me so much!

You can buy this lipstick for £18 here.
Similar shades:
Coral Crush by Dose of Colors £18
24 Carrot Gold by Wet n Wild £2.95

Colourpop Lippie Stix in I Heart This Lippie
The formula of the Colourpop Lippie Stix is great and I have previously reviewed a whole range of them. I don't really wear bright pink lipstick anymore but when I do it has to be this one. I have recently pulled it out from the back of my drawer and been pairing it up with my MAC Talking Points lip liner for a bright and bold lip.

You can buy this lipstick for £5.60 here.
Similar shades:
Fiery Fuschia by Maybelline £6.99
Tropical Pink by GOSH £7.99

Origins Blooming Sheer in Coral Daisy
I'm not the biggest fan of coloured lip balms as I usually wear Elizabeth Arden's 8 Hour Cream as a lip base underneath a lip colour, so I find myself slightly confused when I put on a lip balm and BAM! I have hydrated and coloured lips at the same time from only using one product? Sounds too good to be true!
I like to wear this lip balm with minimal makeup but lots of bronzer for a glowy look. I'm all for the 'bronzed goddess' look this summer (and every future summer too).

You can buy this lip balm for £17.50 here.

Smashbox Lipstick in Get Fired
I have never tried any Smashbox cosmetics before but I have to say that this is one of my absolute favourite lipsticks I have ever tried! The formula is great, it's not drying and the colour pay-off is amazing. I wear this colour all year round, but I felt like it needed to be mentioned in this post because it's a stunning shade.

You can buy this lipstick for £18 here.

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know if you already own any of these shades, and if there are any gorgeous bright shades that you'd recommend!

I'm a huge fan of Primark's PS PRO beauty range (you can read my review of their other products here), so when I found out about the release of liquid lipsticks I nearly collapsed.

There weren't too many different shades to choose from, so I picked one which I knew I would get a lot of wear out of. I thought this shade resembles Jeffree Star's Posh Spice, which I've been lusting over for a long time so this cheaper alternative is basically perfect.

This liquid lipstick only cost £3, which is an amazing bargain. The packaging is similar to Jeffree Star's in style, and even the applicator is very alike!

The colour, as you can see above, is quite different when swatched than what it's like in the bottle. It sort of oxidises as it turned out warmer than expected.

The consistency is quite thick and it is very opaque, if I had to compare it to another liquid lipstick it would have to be NYX's Lip Lingerie in Embellishment (read my review here) but at a fraction of the price.

I would highly recommend getting one of these to try out, I guarantee you will fall in love with the product and the price haha.

What's your favourite liquid lipstick? Have you tried any of Primark's beauty products?

Hi Everyone!

Who doesn't own a NYX liquid lipstick yet? Either if it's a Soft Matte Lip Cream or the Lip Lingerie, it doesn't matter - NYX has been raved about for quite some time in the UK now and I've finally joined the bandwagon once I heard that my local Boots store opened up a NYX counter.

It wasn't long until I grabbed a few items including this gorgeous shade from the Lingerie collection. I really wanted to get more shades but the ones they had left weren't my cup of tea as many were sold out almost immediately...

First of all, the packaging is gorgeous. It looks a lot like the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit but for a fraction of the price, haha! It feels quite heavy and expensive to be honest, I actually thought it'd be quite flimsy and light but I'm glad it's not - this will make a great present for a friend or family member.

It took me forever to try and find the name of the shade ha ha, how embarrassing! I actually thought that this was a collection rather than the shade!

As you can see, the wand is really flat which makes it quite easy to apply. However, I do prefer Jeffree Star's wands as they are shaped to hug lips for better application, on the other hand I feel like NYX could have improved their wands as it's quite hard to get in the corners of the mouth and it always feels like I go out of line when applying this onto my lips.

So, not only is the wand flat but it's quite thick so it makes it even harder to apply! I think this would be easier to use with a lip brush however, I just slap on a bit of lipliner and go over with this lippy and have the perfect untouched lip for at least 5 hours!

Here's a swatch with the flash on, and the one below is a swatch with the flash off.
It actually looks a lot warmer and brown on my arm than it does on my lips as I feel like it's more of a nudish purple shade.

Overall, I was really impressed with the pigment of this lipstick and loved the colour when I swatched it on my arm, but because it shows up purple on my lips it slightly disappointed me and I wish I chose a different shade, as well as the wand isn't very up my street. But hey ho! What can you do? It was only £6.50 and the formula is great so I can't complain!

I will definitely add more of these to my collection, next on the list is Ruffle Trim!

Have you tried any of the NYX lip products? Which ones did you like best?

Lots of love,
