First Impressions of Lottie London

Hello Everyone!! I am living for the sun today!

So Lottie London is possibly one of the most underrated brands I  have come across. There isn’t much talk of them in the beauty realm, or on social media. After testing some products I am shocked!! They are super cheap, in most Superdrug stores and often 3 for 2 online, and they are truly great quality. If I’m being honest, they could double their prices and I’d still be interested.

I mostly tried their lip products and have actually discovered a new daily fave! It’s the Slay All Day Liquid Lipstick in shade GIRL PWR. This gem is £5.95 and it’s my go to shade. The formula is so smooth and creamy and it lasts all day without drying my lips out. I’ve worn it from 7am for work to 3am for a night out and it has not budged! (And yes it was a messy night!)

Speaking of nights out… the best lip look for that is their Glitter Switch Liquid Lipstick. This is £6.95 and I own 5 of them! If you haven’t heard of these, they work by having the appearance of a liquid lippy… but once you rub your lips together- TA DA! They are glittery! I love that it creates a shimmery and elegant look, rather than a chunky glitter one. I find this product so innovative, and it makes a cheaper alternative to the £17 Ciate version- which I do also love but this is much more affordable. I recommend the shade “Spill the Tea” as it’s a simple, light nude.

Another STUNNING product is their Eye Foils for £4.95. These are perfect for shimmery cut creases, and I even use mine for lip toppers. My fave shade has to be “Savage”, a pearly pink. Now is a great time to mention how gorgeous their packaging is- I seriously think they are premium in every way but the price!

Overall, this is a brand I am loving and I hope to try more of their products. A few more that are worth mentioning are the Highlighter Palette which so creamy; the Stamp Liners-perfect for begginers, and the Holo DuoChrome Gloss.

Primark’s Liquid Lipsticks

Lately, Primark have been bringing out all kinds of crazy new makeup. Reknown for their insanely low prices, it comes to no surprise that we see the same thing with their makeup. One product of theirs I did want to mention is their liquid lipstick minis set.

Super sorry for the horrendous lighting…I totally didn’t take this picture in the car… Anyway, I haven’t included swatches as these colours look the exact same as they do in the bottles, and aren’t they just gorgeous! These remind me of the Huda Beauty lipstick minis and I adore the colours. Four stunning nudes (although one is more of a dark burgundy) for only £4! Amazing! There is also a set of four with darker colours.

As for the formula, I was so impressed at how wonderfully creamy these are. They sit so nicely and dry quickly with literally no cracks. I find them so easy to apply that I didn’t need to use lip liner whatsoever.

As always there is a downside, but don’t worry, it’s not a major one! I found that they all don’t seem to last too long, maybe about 3 hours before you need to reapply, The bonus here is that the super creamy formula means that they are easy to reapply without cracking or feeling heavy. I should also mention that I tested two of their Kylie Jenner dupes which are £3 for a full sized liquid lippy and a liner. These colours don’t have names but I bought a pale nude and a darker one but upon application they came out pale peach and bright pink-not my kinda nude. So as for those, they’re a no go for me.

I 100% have to recommend these but be aware that its best for short-term wear (unless your’e happy to top up), and I wouldn’t recommend wearing them whilst eating as it gets a tad messy! Overall, I’m in love with the colours so that leaves us with:
