SOAP & GLORY SUPER-COLOUR FABULIPSTICK REVIEW


As someone with very pale skin, it can be difficult to find a pink/nude lipstick shade that doesn't wash me out. I'm usually a red lipstick kinda girl, and generally go for the blue-toned ones to emphasise the pearly whites. I love the old Hollywood style, glamorous flowing locks and the perfect red lip. Simple, elegant and bold.  However, as we come into Spring/Summer, a bold red lip isn't always desired - especially if all you're doing is popping out to Tesco...

So, the hunt began. I was roaming the aisles of Boots with about 50 swatches across both hands but I kept coming back to this one, Guavarama by Soap & Glory (£9.00). It is a lovely pink (but not too pink!) shade which is a perfect colour for wearing during the day. It suits my pale skin perfectly and doesn't look too dissimilar from my natural lip colour either. It's very moisturising on the lips with a   "3-D plump peptide complex, Shea butter, Monoi butter, Hyaluronic acid and Ceramide 2 - all beneficial in the prevention of premature ageing. All this in a lipstick?! Yes please.

I have been using this product as part of my daily routine for around 2 weeks now and I have not been disappointed. I like matte lipsticks and this has a matte lipstick effect on my lips whilst still remaining very moisturising. It also doesn't draw attention to any dry patches on the lips which I love. This lipstick comes in a fantastic range of shades, I'm so glad I stumbled across it and I will definitely be going back for more!

    1. Yeah my criteria when i'm makeup shopping revolves around "is this going to suit my extremely pale skin?" haha, but their makeup is worth having a look at. It's a little more expensive than other "drugstore" brands but you can pick up a bargain! :) xx
