I do think a couple of the swatches look different on my arm and in this light, especially the black one Raven, looks very green on here and it is black in "real life"



Sorry I have not been blogging a lot in the past few weeks, with the kids on half term and me being not too well its been hard to find the time...well never mind :)

I have had a bit of a spend on some lipsticks and stains recently, with autumn here, I wanted some darker shades, I do have a weakness for dark berry lips! and even black ones!

I bought these in Superdrug and ordered online for the Lime Crime one, the most expensive was also the Lime Crime Utopia, but they are really worth the price and I don't say tat often about beauty products.

The Revlon ones are very nice on my lips, really creamy and they do stay put without much re application, I think in 8 hours I reapplied once, I usually find dark lipsticks need constant reapplying, but I was pleasantly surprised with the Revlon ones.

The Maybelline one was nice, but it didn't last as long as the Revlon ones, it needed reapplying often, which was a real shame as I loved the shade of this one, I also don't think it really came across well on the swatch I did of it, I really want to try more of these, might look at more lasting ones in the Maybelline range.

Rimmel's Apocalips is something I have been meaning to try in a long time and never got round to actually buying it, so while I was having a splurge I thought why not!  I must be honest, every lipstick or stain I get I always smell them first..this one didn't smell like lipstick, it smelled like playdoh! which was a little weird!  Now when I applied this it did last hours! As with the Revlon ones this only needed reapplying once in the afternoon, is not a matte finish, but its not a high shine one either, I really loved it and I plan on buying a LOT more!!!

Superdrug also sell a very cheap budget range called Makeup Academy (MUA)  I have used quite a lot of their stuff and Ive been impressed with the quality and the price, with Halloween coming up I have been looking for a black lippy!  I had heard that Barry M does a really great one but there was none left :(  I looked at MUA and saw they had one left!! and it was for......£1!!!!  Needless to say, I didn't think it would be as good as it was when I got it home!  In the swatch I did above it didn't show as well as I hoped, in the swatch their is a green tint to it which I never had on my lips when I used it, I have only wore it once, it lasted pretty well for something that cost a £1, but as with most dark lipsticks, it did need quite a lot of reapplying.  Does anyone know any dark black lipsticks from any other brand that are really good???

And finally...my favourite lip product brand...Lime Crime!!
I could gush and go on and on about how good their Velvetines are, I have four of them now!!  My favourite shade of theirs is Wicked! Which is sold out at most places at the moment.  So I have was having a wee browse on my favourite cosmetics website CocktailCosmetics.co.uk, and they were showing the newly released Utopia Velvetine!  I do love pinks and this looked even nicer than their Pink Velvet which I already have, so I had to get it..yes they are quite expensive for a lip stain..,.buutt you put this on..it ain't coming off, it stays on through drinking, eating and....kissing!  It dries to a lovely matte look, it really is gorgeous! I would recommend Lime Crime Velvetines to everyone!!!  They have a black one too, which is sold out at the moment...feel like crying lol!
