Lips by Winnie Beau London …

A few months ago I expressed an interest in trailing some products by Winnie Beau London who specialize in luxurious lip products.

Not long afterwards look what popped through my letterbox.

I was sent a couple of matte liquid lipsticks in Bella [ above ] and Lola.

Bella is an orange / brick shade with Lola being a deep red.

Both initially terrified me [ as much as a lippy can ] as they looked so dark. I don’t tend to do dark lips. I’m strictly a ‘look like I’ve been dug up’ nude / pink kinda girl.

I play up my best feature which I would say is my eyes. I feel dark eyes and a dark lip is a little OTT [on me anyway] . I do love a dark red lip … just on other people.

So what do you think!?

Lola [ below ] was my favourite of the two I was sent.

Despite being slightly too dark for me I did actually like the lipsticks.

The BF hated them on me; he said they made me look washed out. I do get where he’s coming from… I initially thought the same. They took some getting used too.

I switch from matte to oil slick lips  [ dripping in gloss] like it’s gone out of fashion and depending on the mood I’m in! 

That’s what I love about makeup. You can chop and change, be whoever or whatever you feel like being. Flirty, natural, full on … it’s your choice.

The liquid lipsticks are very matte and they don’t budge. I had to wash my face and scrub away at my lips with soap and water / cleanser to remove them. This is probably down to the fact they are water proof! Something I wish I’d read before trying to remove with just a tissue. Didn’t shift!

The Matte Liquid lipsticks retail at £8.99 each and come in 6 shades – Lola, Bella, Cleo, Coco, Royalty and Willow. They are cruelty free and not tested on animals.

I did find them ever so slightly drying. On the photo above where I’m wearing Bella I have popped a tiny blob of Vaseline over. My lips felt a little tight and needed some moisture.

I’m happy to report the colour lasts. I wore both shades for around 8 hours / a full working day and I only had to touch up once or twice.

This is fabulous for woman on the go who have more pressing matters to deal with other than retouching their lippie every 5 minutes.

I don’t think I would repurchase the matte liquid lipsticks in the shades I currently have but I would be keen to try one of the lighter pinks.

Hey what can I say I like looking like I’ve been dug up !

Are you a fan of matte lippies and if so which brand would you recommend?

Until next time, Tracey x

    I think I prefer the coral/brick colour “Bella” … but, I don’t know, I think I’ll stick to my nude/dusky pink glosses …. matte lipsticks just seem to make me look old!!! 😜

      Hi Linda,
      They are both totally not colours I’d Normally go for tbh. At the moment I’m back on my gloss … a beautiful pale pink. I’m back in my comfort zone. Thankyou for popping across and commenting x
