Feels like it’s been ages since I wrote a post. Where is this year going, I can’t believe it’s almost August. Last week saw me give up alcohol for four weeks. It’s one of the things on my 101 things and I figured now was the time to give it up pre tough mudder.
So now it’s time to get used to nights out spent on water. I’m already missing the social aspects of it but have been out twice and not drink.
On Sunday I met up with Jenny to go to a Lower than Atlantis gig in Clwb ifor Bach. I’ve not heard much of LTA but love a gig so jumped at the chance to go.
I decided to go for classic make up so my current favourite red for a night out came. It’s the lipsense lip colour in blu – red. These are absolutely amazing for staying all night and this is the perfect classic pillar box red.
I love a red lip but do hate the maintenance of it and seeing it transferred on glasses and things. I have tried other lipstains that claim to last 24 hours but found they wore really badly to the lip liner effect which is never a good look.
It’s a great colour for making the teeth look pearly white!
The lipstains are a little sticky when first applied but when topped with the lipgloss have a long lastig non sticky finish. Once the lipgloss wears off the lipstain stays unfaded and non sticky and doesn’t dry out or flake on the lips. They come with a classic doe foot applicator which is the perfect size for precise application. The lip colour itself feels light and liquid on the lips. The dude approves though as it saves me covering him in lippie!
The lipstain has been on for over 5 hours here and still looks perfect!
These seriously have amazing lasting power and I always reach for them on a night out. The only place they seem to fade is the corner of the lips. The downside of these. Getting them off!! They usually need a good oil cleanser or lip scrub to budge them properly but they do sell a special remover I think I need to try. You can get a set of the colour, gloss and remover for £45 or the colours themselves are £22. Though they seem expensive they do last all night so you don’t need to worry about touch ups and won’t use as much product.
have you found any long lasting lip products. I can’t wait to try more colours!
