MeMeMe Cosmetics is a brand I’ve never tried before but always hear wonderful things about, and they always seem to have the most beautiful ranges of colours across all their products. Recently I was very kindly sent two of the MeMeMe Long Wear Satin Lip Creams in the colours Selene – Pashmina Pink* and Hemera – Coral Cloak* and I couldn’t wait to give them a go.
The Lip Creams are said to be “Long lasting lip colour, super vitamin enriched for luxuriously soft alluring lips, with the perfect shade to suit every look”. Sounds good to me! The Lip Creams also contain “the highest amount of Shea butter that is possible to integrate within a formulation with it still remaining in a lipstick form, allowing for a soft, highly moisturising finish”. They certainly are very buttery and creamy to wear, applying really easily and feeling very comfortable on my lips. They really do moisturise my lips, which is fab as I have quite dry lips by nature and some lip products definitely dry them out even more. I do find that when I first apply the Lip Creams they cling to dry patches but soon melt in and sit smoothly. Both Lip Creams are satin finish which I really like as they still have a pretty glossy sheen to them, but with the impact and pigmentation of a matte. They last quite well on my lips but due to being so soft melt fairly quickly where my lips meet, so it’s definitely worth keeping it with you to touch up application. Even as they do wear off however, they leave a pretty stain of colour behind all over the lips so you’re not left with the dreaded lipstick ring.
Pashmina Pink is a light, cool toned frosty pink which looks very pretty in the sunny weather we’ve been having. Unfortunately I think this shade is slightly too light to suit my skin tone and makes me look a bit washed out. Wahhh! It would look beautiful with a tan though, so roll on summer!
Coral Cloak is a very orange toned coral, far more orange than peach, but I absolutely love it! It’s a great shade to wear at festivals and, being so moisturising, is great for summer when the sun can dry lips out even more than usual. It’s a really pigmented shade and quite unlike any other orange colours in my collection, which are mostly darker bolder oranges.
The packaging of the Lip Creams is really pretty. Each box has a picture and name of a mythological goddess which is quite random but cool and I really like that the colour of the lipstick is used for the font of each box. The bullet casing itself is standard black with a nice matte. almost rubber like texture, and glossy swirls which is pretty and mirrors the satin finish of the lipsticks inside. They also have a good firm closing lid which makes a really satisfying click when closed – anyone else love this?! – which also means they’re not likely to come loose and ruin your favourite handbag. Always a bonus!
