Hello everybody, this week i’m going to do a slightly different post and talk about some lip products that have disappointed me! If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know i’m not one to bash brands or products at all but i’v been keeping a little pile of products that i’m not a fan of ready to write this post!
So this is the little disclaimer part everyone does on these types of posts! Just because I don’t like the products for whatever reason doesn’t necessarily mean they’re bad. That’s it plain and simple. I also bought all of these products with my own money so its okay for me to be a little disappointed when I spend £20 on a rubbish lip gloss or whatever! Okay now onto the products…
Urban Decay Ultra Nourishing lip gloss £15
This is really disappointing for me as I love pretty much everything about this. It is very pigmented, the lasting power is good and it feels great on the lips. I just cannot get on with this because of the overwhelming scent! It’s a very chemical-heavy scent which is kinda minty kinda not and after googling i’ve found countless reviews saying the same thing. It’s such a shame as its very off putting meaning I haven’t used it very much.
Topshop lipstick in ‘Ohh La La’ £8
From what i’ve tried Topshop makeup is pretty good. I have a really nice cream blusher and a matte lip bullet but whatever I do I can’t get on with this lipstick formula. I have two shades, but the one I find it hardest to use is ‘Ohh La La’ which is a very vibrant pinky-coral. I find that it clings to dry patches when I apply it and the formula isn’t creamy enough to apply an even layer. Have you tried these? I’d love to know your thoughts on them!
MUA Luxe Velvet lip lacquer £3
These lacquers from MUA were one of the first liquid lipstick type products I ever tried. Whilst they’re not the worst (and they’ve been repackaged since I bought mine, possibly even re-formulated?) I think you can buy much higher quality liquid lipsticks from the drugstore. I’m currently loving the NYX lip suede- would anyone like a review? On my lips the lip lacquer can crack and separate; I want these sort of lip products to be long wearing but this one is not for me!
Estée Lauder Signature lipstick in ‘Pink Sand’ £22
This is a really pretty lipstick it just doesn’t suit me! Its very shimmery and pale and doesn’t match my olive skin tone very well. I think this would suit very pale people but for me this is a total thumbs-down. I like the packaging though…
Maybelline Color Drama lip stick pencil £4.99
I’m really disappointed with this purely because of the formula. It’s a crayon type lipstick, pretty much like a chubby lip liner but for me it was not creamy enough to get a good finish on the lips. I might try and use this as a liner to extend the wear of other coral lipsticks though and see if that works.
So that was my very long and slightly ranty post about disappointing lip products. Hopefully I can save you a few pounds next time you go shopping! What lip products have you been loving recently?
