I have a bright pink lippy love going on at the moment. I got a “2 True” one that I’m really pleased with and have blogged about it previously and I have just got my hands on another cheapy number. I talked about in my post on Thursday. While at Tesco I bought 2 nail polishes (neither of which are very good but more on that later) and a Wet n Wild Lipstick in the colour “Retro Pink“. Here's what it looks like with and without a flash.
After going through the collection of lipsticks I have there are some colours I have nothing of. Everything is a little samey. I certainly have the odd one with a hint of pink about it but not PINK and not BRIGHT. My new lipstick is a really bizarre shade in a way. It looks proper pink in the tube but when on it’s hot lilac pink. My fella described it as the right side of wrong (tee hee). It’s certainly bright and I can’t help but love it. I know this might be a bit too much for some but I’m sold. It lasts really well for a lipstick costing under £2 as well. When it does fade it doesn’t go patchy either. I think I will see if I can pick up another colour next time I pop in for the dinner. Below is not the best photo but I wanted to give you an idea of what it looked like on.
The nail polishes on the other hand I will not be buying again. Both colours I bought looked great to begin with, went on ok but didn’t last long at all. The blue one was the worse than the bronze, chip city within 24 hours, however neither were particularly great. The bronze and it’s “Rock Solid” tag didn’t live up to it’s name but lasted a little longer. A day and a half before chips showed. Due to it’s sheer formula and light colour this didn’t look as obvious so I popped another coat over my nails and they still look ‘ok’. I might reuse this at some point but the blue is a definite no.
So do you guys have any bright lipsticks you could recommend?
Hope you've had a great weekend.
