So this day last week, I did something different. I got myself a product I wouldn’t normally go for. I’ve always been a matte girl when it comes to lippies, so any lip product with a bit of a gloss tends to scare me – think hair down on a windy day, painful!
I must say, my stress and concerns about glossy lipsticks were quickly put to rest after I started using this Holy Grail product. This liquified lipstick by Too Faced has definitely set the bar high for any other glossy lipsticks I will be looking at from here on out.
This shade in particular is called Ruby. It’s a blood red that is highly pigmented and buildable. One coat leaves a slightly matte finish and wears almost like a stain. However if you much rather a glossier finish, you can build it up! It isn’t overly hydrating when wearing glossy nor is it too drying as a stain. It feels very comfortable and lightweight on the lips, which I think is particularly important when wearing it glossy.
It wears really well during the day, especially when you use a lip liner before hand. The first time I used this lipstick without a lip pencil, I wasn’t impressed with the fact that I had to constantly reapply during the day – not something a lot of people enjoy doing. So I would definitely recommend using a lip pencil with it as it does absolute wonders with the longevity of it.
According to Too Faced, the Melted Liquified Long wear Lipsticks have
the staying power of stain, the intense colour of a liquid lipstick and the high shine of a gloss in one long-wear formula.
Mine certainly tick all three boxes and I can already see myself getting another bold shade -or two.
The colours in this collection range from vibrant tones to more neutral shades and are available to purchase in Debenhams for €23. Can you see yourself getting one? Tweet me @FilomenaKaguako
- 10000Is it just me or does anyone else think that having a strong red lipstick game is a prerequisite for a successful February? Well if it is just me, then let me try and convert you..... I honestly think there's nothing worse than seeing someone desperately fail at trying to pull off Monroe’s infamous red lip.…
