As part of my clearing everything out quest and developing a habit of selling everything I own on eBay. (Literally everything, my baby boy grows out of something and I have it off him, papped and listed on eBay in one minute flat) So a little note if you have anything you want to sell, well please do hide it, before I get to it first!
I have been shopping my make-up and skincare stash quite a lot lately too. I am typing this thinking is this even me? Oh how I have changed! (It`s most probably just a phase, none the less I am still super proud)
I was lucky enough to be in London the day Charlotte launched her fabulous make-up range at Selfridges. Velvet Underground lipstick was one of the items I just fell in love with instantly. Unfortunately its just sat on my lippie stand un-used and unloved (now this sounds more like me. I feel so bad now that I left it there so long, inserts crying emoji)
Anyway It caught my eye one rainy morning last week and I thought today`s your lucky day (or mine) lets brighten this shiz up! (I was looking tres rough and a bright lippie always makes me feel a little more human)
Can we just take a minute to look at the packaging!! Ahhhhh there is just something about a gold bullet case that makes me feel like I am using one of my Nan`s lipsticks (in a good way) you know when you would look and think oooooo one day I will have a posh lipstick like that? It catches the light beautifully as you can see from the picture, and looks wonderful on a dressing table. Whipping it out of your handbag on a night out is sure to catch other lipstick addicts eyes. (You know who you are).
This lipstick feels lovely when applying it`s creamy but not too creamy were its sliding everywhere, just sticks to the lip wonderfully. The colour is so beautiful, a bold pinky dark fuchsia. As you can see from the piccies below this beauty has blue undertones so makes your peggies look whiter!
It stays on the lips for around 2-4 hours depending what your eating and drinking but does stain the lip for a good 6 hours. It doesn’t bleed and is a pleasure to use. The only ooooo and rrrrr I have is that its £23 so a high end lipstick, but to be perfectly honest I would buy again.
What do you think? Would you try? Any other lipsticks from the range that I need to try?
