Hello beautiful ladies! If there are two things I cannot live without from my beauty bag, its my lipstick and foundation. Lipstick because my look would be incomplete without it and foundation because I love the evened out finish it gives.Its also a life-saver for those late nights when sleep is the last thing on your mind because series..OBVIOUSLY!
Summer SCREAMS colour, and our lip colour choices are no exception! With that being said, RED, Summer and bright are the perfect combination, which is why I will be sharing my choice of reds from two of my favourite beauty-brands. I would like to think I’m a simple girl, so when it comes to lippies, I love affordable but durable! SO..say hi to Wet ‘n wild.
Wet ‘n wild lipsticks are high in pigment and has a durability of four hours or more. The best part is you can eat and it will still be there! You may want to touch up once,purely out of choice,other than that you’re good to go! I was introduced to the brand early this year when I went make-up shopping for my cousin’s wedding and found their stand close by to my other favorite brand (essence). Being the adventurer that I am, I had to try it and my love for the brand has only grown. My fave red in their range is Red Velvet. I have added in my favourite pink,because it is too pretty to leave out.Here are the Wet ‘n wild swatches :
With essence,it took me snooping through my mums make-up bag like most young girls do,to start a long term relationship.That weekend I was BOLD enough to to stop at Clicks ( you guys can find both the brands stands there) and pick out my own eyeliner, shadow pallet and mascara – which I will forever rant about because ITS THAT GOOD. I put a nude colour and a red in my basket..and the rest is history ..
I love that my essence lippies are so light on the lip.They aren’t as highly pigmented as Wet ‘n wild but they definitely give you the look you want.Both beauty brands retail the same when it comes to these lipsticks, under R80.Red will always stay in trend,keep trendy till the next pickled piece! 🙂 Here are the essence swatches :
