Love bites

Dear readers, I do like a rouge lip. Nothing says ooh la la (except for Louboutins, of course) than a deep red lip that Gwen Stefani would be proud of. In this consumer world, walking into your local boots you are instantly presented with a range of brands from high-end Dolce and Gabbana, YSL, to what I call 'mid-priced', Maybelline, L'Oreal, through to those 'spending the £2 on my boots advantage card' moments at Collection 2000. If that wasn't hard enough lipsticks come in black, orange, blue and every shade between, oh and don't forget the texture! Matte, glossy, subtle shine? So you see my problem. I don't want to spend too much on a shade that I'm not sure will suit me or smudge, or I'll have to reapply a lot.

I was intrigued to try Rimmel's 1000's  kisses lip stain. I chose shade 'Carry on Cherry' a rich red hue with a pink hint. The texture is matte, but the balm adds a hint of shine and gloss can always be added for that extra va va voom. Versatility does not end here as the colour can be applied lightly for a subtle effect or built up to a rich, deep red. It doesn't have the best staying power though-I had to reapply it fairly often but the red hue, even when faded was still visible. Overall though, it's great especially if you want a product that is versatile-perfect for students ;).

  1. Do you think it's subtle enough to get away with in school, but will add a pop of colour to my lips?

    1. Yes!! :) I've even worn it to school, with a light hand apply a layer for a look that's great for school. On top of that it's great for nights out aswell because you layer it on for a more dramatic lip <3

  2. Never heard of this lipstain before but it looks cool, might try it out!

  4. i really like lip stains they give some color but tend to stay a little longer than lipstick


  5. Such awesome reviews. I haven't really tried a lip stain in quite a while.

  6. hi, interesting blog, follow each other?

  7. Great review, I want to try this product now (:

  8. I'm a fan of the red lip too. Love minimal eye makeup with full red lips--stunning . . .

  9. I have this! It's pretty good, but I thought Revlon is the best I've tried so far when it comes to deep lip stains.
