Ooh it’s been a while since I posted about pretty make-up. Well we can’t be neglecting that side of things on Just Nice Things so to remedy that, take a look at these lipsticks from high street favourites MeMeMe.
These satin lip cream lippies are enriched with Shea Butter and Vitamin E and lightly scented. There are 10 colours to choose from of which I have been testing three shades: Hot Magenta, Berry Crush and Tuscan Red (from left to right on the top picture and the swatches below).
First up is Hot Magenta, an eye-popping neon pink and quite a statement colour. I love the shade but it was very buttery and sheer. You’ve heard of lipsticks dry fast, well this is the opposite – messy in application and far from long-lasting. Disappointing.
Berry Crush is a bluey-purple frost which applied beautifully and is my favourite out of the three. Unlike Hot Magenta this one definitely has a satin finish, is pretty pigmented and stays put on the lips. I’ve received a few compliments when I’ve worn this.
Finally Tuscan Red, a reddy-coral frost. Similar to Berry Crush in consistency and appearance, it’s a bold colour but one I’m fond of.
I am a fan of MeMeMe though I’ve only sampled a few of their products. Their lipsticks are a first for me and I have to say I’m on the fence about them. Amazing colours but a bit of a let-down when you realise how much they retail for and how top notch their Seventh Heaven Enriched Facebase primer and Goddess Rocks are. I have bought a few of their lip glosses which I would recommend you try instead.
MeMeMe’s Long wear Satin Lip Cream lipsticks cost £8.50 and are available in Superdrug stores, Superdrug online and directly from MeMeMe where currently they are on special offer for £6.50.
Plenty of items still available in my blog sale…please have a look!
MeMeMe seem to be pulling out rabbits from their top hat here – their Seventh Heaven Enriched Facebase is fabulous and now this: a miniature tub of gold nuggets I stumbled across on the compulsory wander around my local Superdrug whenever I’m in its vicinity. One quick sweep with my finger tips, and I was sold.
I love the shape of these – they’re not your usual spherical shaped bronzer but shaped like gold nuggets and with a glorious mix of old gold colour and bronze too.
The pigment is rich and smooth, and the product is so versatile as well. Use as a highlighter or a bronzer, try the individual rocks as eyeshadow or add some shimmer to your gloss for a copper lip tint are apparently the tips recommended from their website.
I used a nugget straight to my eyelids and it applied remarkably well (no crumbling). The colour stands out so boldly on its own and I was even complimented on my eye make-up. No one could have guessed I applied it quickly in the ladies loos at work ahead of an evening out.
Pretty packaging, great name and of course, a superb product. Thoughts?
