Wicked Lippie – Wrath / Lingerie Liquid Lipstick – Embellishment / Aqua Luxe Lipgloss – Beat Goes On

dsc_0567-011So as I mentioned in a previous post I was on my way to putting up a NYX Lip-product review before things got in the way and postponed it however here it is! I was actually only going to buy a few of the soft-matte lip cremes however I was side-tracked ending up buying something different. I purchased one of the Wicked Lippies, an amazing vibrant mettalic range. A Lingerie Liquid Lipstick which I have been hearing people rave about forever and an Aqua Luxe Lipgloss (which I was absolutely dying to use).dsc_0570-01dsc_0600-01

The Wicked Lippies are a range of vibrant blues and greens that you wouldn’t usually see in a lipstick range. However I knew I wouldn’t be able to pull off those colours so I decided to go for Wrath, a coppery-red that reminded me of Kylie Cosmetics – Reign.
Considering this isn’t a matte the longevity of this lipstick is impressive! Although a little less metallic than I was hoping for and slightly more sheen it is still such a beautiful colour. Because it’s not a matte shade layering it to create a bit more colour is fine and doesn’t look patchy, this particular shade is slightly more orange than Reign but still an amaaaaazing dupe for it and sits a lot more comfortable on the lips than the actual Kylie Cosmetics Metal shades. I really would love the Wicked Lippie range to come out with more pink colours that have an everyday wear-ability to them.
Rate – 9/10

I’m pretty sure everyone knows about the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick range by now and I was absolutely dying to get my hands on one. Here’s a bit of information, I didn’t do my research and accidentally ordered a shade that I really don’t like. I can admit purple isn’t my colour, it’s not a shade I would wear everyday and I was mostly looking forward to finally having an amazing everyday nude – jokes on me. However, this product is still really really good. Disregarding the colour completely – this stays on for as long as you want it to. It is really tough to remove but aren’t all liquid lipsticks? Β It barely settles in the creases of your lips and gives a lovely airbrushed look. Once settled and dried it does feel comfortable on your lips for a while although as expected it gradually dries more throughout the day. The one thing I dislike about this product is the initial application, the brush (an absolute joke) is so hard to work with. What happened to a normal doe-foot applicator? Its so long and you have no control as to where you’re putting it. It takes a lot more effort than I would like to get a neat application. The formula is also very sticky during the first 3-or-so minutesΒ so try not to close your mouth!
Rate – 7.5/10 (8 in a better colour)

The final product is my absolute favourite the Aqua Luxe Lipgloss, this product screams mermaid vibes. It is just a normal gloss infused with glitter that just adds all the sass you could possibly want! I am a gloss fan which is rare these days with the matte-lip craze and this colour is amazing. It’s just a nude pink gloss absolutely packed with gold glitter, which you can’t really see through the picture but just glimmers in the sun light. I always wear this with a light pink liner underneath just to add a bit more a pink. The applicator for this is absolutely fine, the only thing is the amount of time it lasts for is significantly less than that of the other two products. But its a lip gloss so what could I actually expect? It’s small enough to just pop in any size handbag no matter how small and re-apply throughout the day when needed. I personally love this product so much and will definitely be repurchasing it in every colour!
