I thought I would spice things up with a beauty review. Now I’m new to this kind of stuff, so don’t judge! Just trust that I am giving you my honest and genuine opinion 🙂
So recently I was given a Myer gift card and couldn’t help but gravitate towards the bright Chi Chi display in the store. The brand is currently having a 25% off sale at Myer, so it was the perfect opportunity for me to test out some of their lip products.
I’m a big fan of their eyeshadow palettes, but have always been a bit hesitant about purchasing any of their glosses/lipsticks/lacquers without testing the colours out with my skin tone first (trust me, trying to find a decent nude lippy has been my biggest beauty struggle so far!). BUT, I was pleasantly surprised about the quality of their matte lipsticks (very similar to the Lime Crime Velvetines, but they come in a bigger tube – bonus!) and the creaminess of their ‘Dramatic Lip Lacquers’ (kind of a shiny cross between a gloss and a lipstick).
I purchased 3 of their matte lipsticks and one lacquer, in the colour ‘Blonde Ambition’. I was a little darling with this colour, as I tend to avoid anything too bright or orange-based, but as soon as I swatched it I couldn’t help but fall in love. It’s the perfect combination of bright/summery, and it added just the right amount of shine to my outfit.
The consistency is great, and it’s creamy enough to glide onto your lips but easy enough to remove if I made any mistakes. One thing in particular that I loved was the application brush. When I first looked at it, I thought “how in hell am I meant to manoeuvre my arm to work this thing?!” but as soon as I got the hang of it I found it really comfortable to use. Some other bonuses is that the lipstick contains Vitamin E for moisturising, is Paraben Free and isn’t tested on animals.
I couldn’t recommend this lipstick more and I hope this review was somewhat informative. And now for the best part, pictures!
Hope you liked it!
