B. Official Makeup has recently been rebranded after a while of being away from the shelves. If you’ve never heard of B. it’s the cruelty free makeup brand by Superdrug and is vegan and vegetarian friendly.
I was kindly sent a luminous silk lipstick of theirs to test as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad. The shade I received is Suis Moi.
I was really pleased to get a nude pink shade as I don’t really wear many other colours. I think the packaging is quite sleek and simple as well.
The formula is described as luminous silk, it glides on the lips nicely and doesn’t feel sticky etc… The shade is quite sheer to begin with but is buildable with layers.
One issue I did have with this lipstick is I don’t feel it matches the shade sticker as I was expecting a more purple mauve shade. I much prefer the shade it actually is but that’s not the point so just be careful when ordering online if you haven’t seen swatches first.
I love the colour but it is transfer proof and it doesn’t really last long if you’re eating or drinking but it hasn’t put me off trying more from the range.
The lipsticks retail at £6.99 and come in a wide range of shades!
Looking for a lipstick with a satin feel? Then look no further, No7 has an amazing collection of Moisture Drench Lipsticks from gorgeous pink shades to beautiful plums and everything in between.
One of my favourites from this collection is the shade Tawny Rose, a nude pink colour with a lasting finish. The shade is perfect for those out there looking for the perfect nude lipstick which isn’t brown.
As you can see from the image it is a much loved lipstick… What No7 offers is a moisturising lipstick with intense colour and a satin/semi-satin finish.
Of course all products from this brand are hypo-allergenic so perfect for those with sensitive skin.
As ive already mentioned the lipstick has a lasting feel so you don’t have to worry about it coming off easily if you have a drink. It costs £9.95 and is currently on a 3 for 2 promotion.
Have you tried any of the Moisture Drench lipsticks?
Revlon Lip ColorBurst Butters comes in a vast array of shades and today I will be doing a mini review of Tutti Frutti (015) and Candy Apple (035), the lip butters cost £7.99 each and are on the 3 for 2 offer at Boots. I love the simplistic packaging which has the clear top so you can see the shade of lip butter clearly and it has a slight pop of colour which makes it stand out against regular lipstick packaging.
Starting off with Candy Apple I have to say this is my favourite colour of the two, as a fan of red lipstick but not having enough confidence to wear it personally I feel that this is the perfect shade; it isn’t too bold so it doesn’t look odd with my pale skin and it has a certain Snow White elegance about it.
It’s not the perfect swatch being on a tissue but this represents two applications of the product, if you wanted it bolder you can of course add more on top as it glides on smoothly and is quite a soft lip butter so it is more of a lip balm than lipstick.
Tutti Frutti looks like quite a bold orange lip colour but it isn’t as shocking as it seems! This was my perfect holiday colour and I feel is a unique colour as people tend to wear pink or red shades.
Again as the swatch shows this is two applications so it isn’t a dramatic shade of orange like it appears which is perfect for people that don’t feel confident enough to pull off dramatic shades. The only problem I found with the lip butters are that if you have slightly dry or cracked lips then it highlights it rather than covers it.
Overall im quite pleased with Revlon and love their Lip Butters so I would happily buy them again and add more colours to my minimal collection.
For an added extra to the post I thought I’d mention my panda make up bag seen as it has been the background for the lip butters. This cute case came from Primark who have quite the range of make up cases now and cost around £3, it’s perfect for holding your essential make up items in or for travel use!
