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.
