Majestic lips.

By | October 26, 2010

Hi my lovely gems! How are you all? I think I’m coming down with a cold… A big fat BOO to that! Anyways, I was in Superdrug the other day & thought I’d get myself acquainted with the new DARK lip colour trend! Especially after seeing Rebecca Ferguson rocking the PLUM lips on The X Factor the other week! I think you can probably tell by now that I’m addicted to the show! LOL

RRP: £3.69 Sleek True Colour Lipstick
OFFICIAL WEBSITE

I really didn’t want to spend an ARM or LEG for this trend because as we all know… It’s not gonna be around forever! But then again, I still wanted it to look NICE on my lips, at the same time! This was my first Sleek lippy buy, & I’m very impressed… Especially because it’s cheap & cheerful at the same time! ;)

I love the MATTE packaging of the lip stick! Makes it look really professional. Also the product is quite small so will fit into any of my little clutch bags for a night out :)

I thought it would be really pigmented and look really HARSH on my lips (I know it’s supposed to be very dark, but I was a little scared to put it on! LOL) But, you can build up the colour to make it darker, which is ideal for me!

I used this with quite a fuchsia-ish lip liner as an all over base for my lips (which may have made the lippy a little lighter in colour)… But I don’t think I’ll rush out and get a dark lip liner because I liked the outcome of it :) I’m not used to wearing dark colours on my lips so it was a little weird getting used to but I REALLY like the colour!! :D

ALWAYS put a lip balm on before I apply lip sticks – it helps the lippy GLIDEon with minimal effort :) This lipstick has VITAMIN E in it which actually felt really nice on! I don’t think I needed the extra balm on (it’s made it look extra glossy/shiny which I love!) I really liked the product as a whole & will be keeping an eye out for Sleek lipsticks in the future :)

What do you think of the colour? Will you be ROCKIN’ dark lips this season? Or is it not your thing? I may wear this out over the weekend (let’s hope I’m BRAVE enough! Hehe :))

P.S – I’ll be doing the lip stick tooth TRICK too when I wear this… I don’t want it on my teeth ;)

    Eee! I love Majestic, too! Literally have a post sat in my drafts, but I’ve done so much Sleek lately I’m waiting on posting it. Btw, it’s a dupe for the 17 ‘New Black’ in my vampy look post :P

    Love the colour i know what you mean about being brave to wear it out, i bought dark deed from the venomous villains collection its really dark and vampy totally on trend but way out of my norm! Going to try and make it a it more wearable somehow! :S

    • Kaushal

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t feel brave enough to wear it out LOL I find that if you put a bit of colour on your finger & dab it onto your lips it looks less harsh :) I might try that? :) xx

    I bought a similar color by Revlon called grape. Its very rich and dark and a bit out of my comfort level but I’ve committed to trying it this weekend. I won’t feel as self conscious since so many people will be dressed crazy for halloween! LOL

    • Kaushal

      LOL I think I should commit myself to trying it this weekend (…I’m not even dressing up for Halloween though!) Hehe x
