Hello lovelies 💕
I am a huge lover of beautiful bold lipstick colour, I have multiple shades from an array of different brands and love to experiment with my style when I get the chance to. These days, liquid lipsticks are fast becoming popular thanks to the likes of Kylie Jenner and her luscious lip kits. Many make up brands have since jumped on the liquid lip bandwagon and I must say, I am a huge fan!
I recently discovered the latest liquid lippy to join the scene – POWERlips. Newly released in March by Nu Skin, it is available in nine highly pigmented colours and I was chosen to review one for you guys.
Out of the selection of colours to choose from, I opted for Maven, which is a gorgeous deep purplish brown shade that is proving to be a crowd favourite! I really love the colour, it’s a real contrast against my pale skin tone and is great to wear during an evening out.
I’m obsessed with the overall formula of this product, it’s super lightweight and glides on so easily. I love that it has a silky, velvet-like texture, it almost makes the whole product feel more high end and extremely nourishing. I have only ever loved matte finish lipsticks, but I can’t stand the flaky, peeling look it can sometimes create after a while. This liquid lip didn’t flake on me one single bit! I’m putting that down to the fact that is made up with a special blend of awesome ingredients that are designed to soothe, smooth and prevent your skin from drying out. Some of these key ingredients include:
- Vitamin E – this helps to nourish, soften and moisturise your lips whilst delivering anti-aging and antioxidant benefits
- Beeswax – we all know that this calms, soothes and conditions skin, it also helps to protect against irritants
- Avocado Oil – hydrates and softens skin
- Kaolin – a natural clay base that supports rich, long-lasting lip colour
It retails at around £18, a teeny bit on the expensive side for a product you can’t see, test or buy in stores. However, a little product goes a long way, so don’t let the price put you off, one tube will definitely last you a while.
You don’t need a huge amount to get a fully saturated colour, so there’s no need to build it up with multiple layers – plus it’s ultra long-lasting due to being smudge and transfer resistant! That means you can sip your champagne, blot your lips or give your lover a cheeky lil peck without having any product transfer. I did find that oily foods can make it shift a little, but other than that, it’s on for the long haul! I wore mine all night long and it didn’t once flake, bleed or feather out.
Overall, I’m actually really happy with this product and definitely recommend this fluid lippy if you’re into the matte lip look, but can’t stand your pout to dry out! I really want to try out Persistence, Determined and Roar in the near future! If you would like to purchase one of these fab shades, please get in contact with me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org as I am actually signed up as a Nu Skin Distributor and can sort you a deal!
See you in the next post!
