As someone with the kind of lipstick collection I have it’s crazy that I still seem to get excited about new product releases but I really do! This is one of those releases that make me excited to photograph, test and review as soon as possible! Almay recently launched the Lip Vibes collection and let me tell you it’s a goodie!
I’ve been testing this collection for about a month now and can confidently say that it’s been a firm fixture in my handbag & on my lips. I love that there are so many shades and finishes to choose from and they all apply like a dream! Of the 24 shades there are three finishes: matte, cream & topper. The topper’s can be used over any lipstick to add a shimmer or sheen. The shade range goes from everyday nudes to bold blues and even fuchsia pink, so there’s something for every occasion or personality.
If you follow me on Instagram you know that we’ve been using our weekends to shoot content and these have been my go to lipsticks for shoots. They’re super pigmented, apply easily and there are tons of shades to choose from. Each lipstick is formulated with Vitamin E & C, Shea Butter, they’re hypoallergenic & fragrance free so if you have sensitive lips/skin this should be good for you too.
My favourite shade is Be Strong which is a beautiful rosy nude similar to something like Twig from MAC.
We all know that I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging and I’ll be honest in saying that’s what drew me in to begin with! The packaging is made from what I can only describe as a sturdy cardboard so they’re fully recyclable and each lipstick has individual illustrations that represent the specific shade . These are the things that endure me to brands – this kind of attention to detail and genuine investment into our love for aesthetically pleasing items!
Get your hands on these lipsticks for R149.95 exclusively at Dischem.
