I have recently become OBSESSED with lip products. Lipsticks, lip glosses, lip balms – you name it, I love it! Today’s lip lust is from one of my favourite brands – Models Own. Now as you know from my Midweek Manicure posts, I’m a HUGE Models Own fan, and whilst I own far too many of their polishes (is there such a thing?!) a couple of months ago I decided to try one of their Lip-Stix on a whim (which is why the packaging is looking a little bit battered now!) Last week I added another to my collection, and thought I’d give you lovelies a look at them both here.
Lip crayons have been on the beauty block for a while, with most brands – high end and high street – having their own version. I’ve tried quite a few, and think that the Models Own Lip-Stix are definitely up there in my favourites. They’re very moisturising, apply easily – a nice glide over the lips with no pulling – and have a pretty good colour pay out too.
There are 10 colours in the collection and the ones I have (so far!) are Purple Pleasure and Beauty Blush.
I’ve written before about my love for a purple lip, and Purple Pleasure is a great one. It’s a lovely blue toned purple which can be layered for as bold a look as you like.
Beauty Blush is a lot brighter than I thought it would be, but is still a great everyday pink blush. Again, it can be worn as a sheer wash of colour or layered up for a bolder look.
The Lip-Stix have a matte finish so I do make sure I have a good base layer of lip balm before applying them, as they tend to show up every little lip imperfection. However, it is nice to have a matte crayon, as many of my others are glossy. You also get a huge amount of product for ONLY £5, making these a much better cost effective product than some of the other brand offerings (I’m looking at you Barry M Hi-Shine Gelly Lips!)
Have you tried the Models Own Lip-Stix? Which colour should I get next?
