I feel like I am probably the only person in the world who has this opinion but I CAN’T STAND MATTE LIPSTICKS. There, I said it.
I have found around 3 matte lipsticks I can actually bare wearing and they are by Mac, Charlotte Tilbury and Chanel. I constantly have dry lips despite drinking gallons of water and applying lip balm by the bucket load so matte lipsticks do not work for me.
Going to sound like the worst blogger now, but i haven’t actually purchased a new lipstick in about 6 months (oh, the horror). Once I find a lip product I love, I find it difficult to move away from it and try something new. Lately it’s been a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch Perfect and Mac’s Peach Blossom- ultimate old faves! BUT, I had a trip to my local Boots after work this week to pick up some foundation and like always, had a look at the newest products to hit the shelves. As I grabbed the high street fave mascara, Lash Sensational by Maybelline, I noticed they had released a new lip product called Vivid Hot Lacquer by ColorSensational.
The shade is called Unreal and glides on beautifully. I won’t lie, it does have a tiny bit of stickiness to it but not like old school lip glosses where half your hair would stick to it with one whoosh of wind. It feels super moisturising and leaves a nice sheen on the lips with a perfect amount of colour.
Available in 7 shades at boots.com now (I am definitely going for the shade Too Cute, I would definitely recommend if, like me, you aren’t a fan of matte lipstick (are there any of you out there?!).
