Primark-Metallic matte Lip crayon review

Hey guys … so while I have been deeply in love with my matte lipsticks, things have been changing in the lipstick world.

The trend has gone from the more matte the better to super shine metallic lipsticks.

I am not sure how I feel about this look but the celebs and fashion houses are making it work.  Before investing in what seems to be a fleeting trend, I thought I would test the waters with the Metallic Matte lip crayon from Primark. I purchases the 24k Dip and the Dark Berry.

I have used these lip crayons before so I had a rough idea of what I would be getting. Check out my other reviews here.  The quality I get in these lip crayons are so worth every bit of my Β£2, But sharpening them are a nightmare.

I know fashion has a way of going and coming but these metallic lipstick’s remind me of something my mum would have worn in the 80’s. 

That said, we are in the times were highlighting is everything!  I see this trend as a way of highlighting and bringing focus to the lip. 

My number one tip for wearing metallic lips is to really tone down everything else.  Allow your lips to be the main jewel and focus on your face . I don’t have any facial pieceings but this look makes me feel like am wearing jewellery on my lips,  Especially the 24k dip.

My last comment about this product is that on applying this lipstick, I noticed that it has a slight scent to it.

                               πŸ€”πŸ€”???

I am not keen on using scented products on my face … but I guess sweet smelling lips might not be such a bad thing.  πŸ˜—

Let me know what you think of this trend?? Would you try it ??

Primark- PS Matte Long Last Lipstick (Atomic) Review

So I recently lost my lipstick bag😯😯 and some fabulous lipstick shades. I was so gutted but I have been having a blast rebuilding my collectionπŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„.

I went back to Primark for a mini haul .

This product is marketed as a matte lipstick.Β  I found that it’s not as drying or matte as the likes of MAC or Lime Crime. In a way I liked this.Β  Non of that chapped lips look .

This pink shade is called Atomic. It reminds me soo much of the Utopia by LimeCrime.Β  But at a fraction of the price…. winning.
I did a little comparison just for you.

The Lime Crime is a few shades deeper but they are equally fabulous shades of pink.

This lipstick is a bargain at just Β£1.50

Get yours now ! These lipsticks sell out fast at Primark.

Primark- Velvet matte lip crayon review.

I have always wondered why some comestics cost so much. Yet you get the likes of Primark and Superdrugs stocking similar products (unknown brands) for a fraction of the price.

I took a chance and purchased the Velvet matte lip crayon In D-Purple from PRIMARK.
This Β£2 lip pencil was worth every penny.

It glides on smoothly. The velvet quality means that it does not leave your lips feeling dry and flaky like some matte lipsticks.

image

I particularly like the fact that I can sharpen this crayon for greater precision.

For just Β£2 you are getting a fabulous lip colour that will do wonders for your smile.πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
