Read My Lips

Img_3012

I don't normally talk about makeup much, mainly because my makeup choices are invariably selected through laziness. I'm not good at anything that needs to be applied more than once during the day. This is why I don't really wear lipstick - way too much effort!

Having seen so much about Eyeko makeup from other bloggers though, I ended up browsing their website and their lip pens caught my eye. They're quite reasonably priced, which is usually a good reason to do anything so I purchased one in 'Lip Lover'. It is a gorgeous bright red, much more orangy than it appears on the website which I actually really liked. It's pretty easy for a novice to apply (it's just like a crayon!) and has quite good staying power too.

It's not perfect - it does need reapplying every so often, and I need to learn to touch my lips less because I just get it everywhere! I think I could learn to be a lippy person after all though.

I've recently learned to become a lippy person and now I feel so naked without it! Eating and drinking is a bit annoying, though, because I'm not a 'touch up during the day' kind of girl. Try the Make Up Store matte lipsticks when you're ready to experiment again - they last ALL DAY (just make sure you put on some lip balm before hand - but even my veryvery dry lips don't dry out with this lippy)

This color is brilliant on you!

That's such a beautiful colour. Red lippy really suits you.

I'm awful at putting onn lipstick. I keep biting my lips and it never lasts more than 20 mins!! I might give this a shot though. And I have heard great things about Eyeko.

I love this and I love the gif too :) Red really suits you! I think if you are pale like me then red lipstick and bright lipstick is a LOT easier to pull off- I have SO many lippies :S

Y'know that's the cutest pic ever!
I'm a lippy girl again. I wore it years ago and then didn't until about 2 years ago. Despite wearing it often i still rub it over my face, clothes etc, i'm such an awful fidget! methinks blotting alot is key ;)

You should wear lippy more often, I love the colour on you. Personally, I adore make up and all the pretty packaging that comes with it but I'm certainly not an expert but I do love watching tutorials on youtube!

I was always a gloss girl until I discovered Chanel lippies. they are amazing hun, so nourishing and the colours are amazing. My favourite at the moment is Rougue Coco in no 35 (Chintz). Perfect for work. You look great with your red one here.
