Wow 3 weeks in, it’s been amazing seeing so much support for this campaign all over social media from around the world.
Also I apologise as I’m running out of things to say on the lipsticks I have already talked about D:.
I went out for lunch with my family today so it was another trusty Deadly Catch day!
Today I wore the L’Oréal Infallible lipstick in 312 Ravishing Red. This lipstick has great staying power which is super convenient if I am going to be busy all day. I really need to pick up this lipstick in more shades.
Woohoo a new lipstick! I picked this up yesterday in a Farmers sale and it is the Australis VelourLips Matte Lip Cream in NY-CEE. Finally I have another gloss to matte lipstick. I’d heard murmurings of these lipsticks over Instagram and YouTube so after my second time testing them on my hand I decided to buy one.They have recently released 5 more shades for a total of 15 and I need to go and get a couple more.
First of all I have to say this is not at all what I expected. I’ve had other products from this brand that were cheap and proved themselves to be so very quickly. I wasn’t hugely fond of the colour but after actually wearing it I really like it. Of course they are very matte so they dry very quickly. I felt like I desperately wanted to put lip balm on sometimes but just carried on and it was fine. It is very pigmented which is amazing but the applicator doesn’t lend itself amazingly to clean lines. I didn’t need to touch up after eating and it doesn’t leave any residue on things.
I was unwell today sorry so again, no picture. I wore the Australis Velourlips again for a little while and noticed after eating it did blur a little in the corners of my mouth.
I was sick again unfortunately! I didn’t even wear lipstick and spent the day resting on the couch. For all my days off I am going to do a special final day on March 1st to make up for it, also it will still be April 30th in other countries.
I returned! And with the Australis Velourlips in NY-CEE again! Today I put it on while distracted so bits did dry as I was doing it which I had to go over because of errors. I found in the areas which did have a second layer, after a couple of hours it would start to flake around the edges. So I think the trick is to do either your full top and bottom lip before any starts drying and then do the other. I noticed no problem on any of the days when it was just a single layer thick, and one layer is definitely enough for colour payoff. Also at the end of the day (about 10 hours) I got really frustrated with it’s dryness and had to take it off. I didn’t notice this the first day and may have been because I have been wearing it a lot, or just a stressful day.
And another I haven’t yet reviewed! This is another NARS lipstick, this time it is the Semi Matte formula in Heat Wave. This was my first ever proper lipstick and I still adore it. Although I am not a huge fan of the shade I find it works really well in Spring with lighter colours and in Autumn as a great statement with darker colours. Also this formula is to die for, I have no idea why I haven’t picked up another from this range, even though I really need to get one of their Audacious lippies as well… Anyway, this is another lipstick with amazing colour payoff and the finish means it lasts a long time and rarely will need a touch up. It’s less smooth then some of the other NARS lipsticks but still applies pretty well. You can always dust translucent powder on the lips to really mattify it or put gloss over the top. And as an extra bonus this lipstick is very comfortable and have never felt any drying.
There’s only a little over a week left for Red My Lips now which is sad because I really like doing these monthly things. But next month is May the Month of Lingerie! I did this on my Tumblr blog last year and really enjoyed it, also lingerie is a HUGE passion of mine and I can’t wait to show off more of my under things! I’m not yet sure if I’ll post about it on my blog though.
If you can support the Red My Lips campaign in any way of course that would be great. I shall see you next time for the final Red My Lips post.
