Hello my lovelies,
So as mentioned in my recent haul from Brighton I said I would do a review on the Collection Velvet Kiss Moisturising Lip Cream that I brought.
Today I thought that it was a good day to give it a go. The shade I brought was Mulberry and I picked this up from Boots for £2.99, its currently on offer for £2.50 though!
I put this on this morning at around 9am and currently as I am writing this at around 3pm it still looks like I have just applied it – impressive! I have drunk and eaten with this and it has not budged at all which I think is pretty incredible with the price point.
This is a beautiful autumn berry shade which I love wearing this time of the year – I mean who doesn’t!? It has a red undertone which is little different to anything I have owned before so I was quite excited to try it.
It claims to leave a matte velvet finish without drying out your lips, I will be honest I was a little skeptical as there are a lot of liquid lipsticks to claim to do the same thing but have been extremely drying. I was politely surprised and actually it does exactly what it claims to do. When I applied the lipstick I thought it would emphasise the dry areas in my lips but it has completely glided over them and throughout the day as the lipstick has dried it hasn’t dried my lips whatsoever. WINNING!
This is what it looked like as soon as I applied the lipstick and I was so impressed with the pigmentation. It has a doe foot applicator which is what a lot of my other liquid lipsticks are like and I found this really easy to apply. The only negitive that I can really point out is that it is slightly sticky after a while but the good really does outweigh the bad on this occasion.
I honestly can’t praise this formula of lipstick enough especially for the price. Liquid lipsticks are a massive trend but unfortunately this time of year dry lips appear and some formulas just suck moisture out of lips rather than protecting and this does the complete opposite!
I would highly reccomend this to anyone who wants to try out liquid lipsticks or just want to add to their collection. There are 6 shades currently in the range and I will be heading back into Boots to pick more shades up from the range very soon.
A big thumbs up from me! Let me know if you have tried these out and your thoughts on them.
