The iconic red lip is highly esteemed in the makeup world, and we all lust for our own little Marilyn moment. But, finding the right lipstick can prove to be all too difficult in a world of clashing undertones and unpromising formulas.
There is a very fine line for red lips between yes! and oh God, no. There truly is no middle ground here. But, I have found the perfect lipstick that promises to dispose of all of our red lip worries. AND, to make things better it’s just £8!
What makes this lipstick so special?
Maybelline came out with the ‘made for all’ lipstick range earlier this year in January, and all seven shades have very different formulas. some of the shades have a matte finish, whilst others have a silky finish.
All of Maybelline’s lipsticks are enriched with honey nectar. This means that although the red for me shade is a matte texture, it is not drying at all. It feels super, duper comfortable on the lips! Most of the time I totally forget about it, until I look in the mirror and see that fresh shade.
So, before I tried this, I thought I would hate it. I was sceptical about the whole ‘made for all’ thing. How is it possible that one lipstick can look right on every single person, from one side of the spectrum to the other?
I figured it was a little gimmicky, so I decided to put it to the test- and boy was I in for a surprise.
Testing how ‘Made for All’ this really is!
My sister has a darker skin tone and she was allll over this lipstick. I have it swatched on her arm to show you what it looks like on a darker skin tone. It still comes off as a beautiful red shade, however it does look a little bit more casual on her. Such a beautiful red lip shade!
Similarly, I have tested this lipstick on another one of my sisters who is lighter than me! They really did come in handy for this blog post didn’t they?
Once again, I have swatched the lipstick against her arm to demonstrate to you guys what it looks like on a slightly lighter skin tone. On her, the lipstick still maintained a true red shade. I feel that it brought out the tan in her skin! It looked amazing on her too.
I hope this experiment has helped!
So, as you can see from this post, you girl was blown away by this Maybelline lipstick! This exceeded all of my expectations and it just goes to show that you do not have to spend double digits to get a good lipstick.
I love how the more affordable brands from the drugstore have been seriously producing some fantastic quality makeup in the past couple of years. I really hope that you guys will give this amazing lipstick a shot and release your inner Aundry Hepburn.
See you soon!
