I know I said in the last lip product review I posted that it would be my last review post about Christmas lip kits, but there was a little disclaimer at the bottom because after I’d written that post I bought another one. Sue me!
After falling in love with the nude toned Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks that I reviewed earlier this month, I decided I had to have Beso. And when Stila had 30% off their Lips Are Sealed Duo earlier in the month, as part of the advent calendar deal they’ve been doing all month, containing this shade and one other, I knew I needed it. Free shipping and two insane lipsticks for £8 something? I was in!
I’ve already discussed the formula quite in depth in my previous post, but to sum up: these lipsticks truly do last all day. They dry down quickly, there is no bleeding, no transfer and very little fade (after around 10 hours they may fade in the centre of the lips, but only if you’re eating overly greasy food..I had McDonalds), so they’re the perfect lipsticks.
Beso is the perfect Christmas red, with blue leanings to make teeth seem that little bit whiter, and is a shade that looks flattering on all skin tones. Bella is a bright pink (the brightest pink I have ever owned), perfect for the summer months. Give me a (fake) tan and I’ll be rocking this through the warmer days.
As they’re a lot brighter than the other set I picked up, they definitely require lip brush application. The doe foot applicator is great for nudes, but it’s very difficult to get a clean line with it when it comes to brighter colours. A lip brush to get an even outer liner is a must!
This particular set isn’t available at Boots, but you can get the full size lipsticks or a number of the sets of smaller ones online to be delivered tomorrow. Just in time for your Christmas Day lunch when you want your lipstick to stay put!
