[unpaid/sample] The second of my Lisa Eldridge posts focuses on lips – I’ve got two of the Embrace Glosses and two of the Luxuriously Lucent Lip Colours.
I was chatting with a beauty friend yesterday saying that there seems less enthusiasm about new beauty launches than there used to be but this collection is very much the exception. I’ve had comments on Instagram from people saying they can’t wait to get their orders and that they’re so excited to try them – it just goes to show that if you get it right, word spreads and curiosity builds. Both the lipsticks and the glosses are spot-on right – easy, wearable and versatile.
The pink gloss is called Charm – it’s a creamy, baby pink that gives me 60’s vibes and looks amazing with a bit of kohl and mascara on the eyes. I wore it yesterday and again today because it just seems to suit my mood. The neutral shade is Affair, a toffee-ish colour that looks the right side of dark caramel on the lip.
The Luxuriously Lucent Lip Colours fall somewhere between balm and lipstick. They’ve a little bit of translucency so they’re not a big smack of pigment but colour enough to make the impression. I love the soft, buttery texture that feels melty and cushiony – I really wasn’t expecting that at all. On the left is Kitten Mischief and on the right is Rose Official. The lipsticks and the glosses are available HERE on pre-order. Lip Colours are £26 and Glosses are £18.
From top to bottom: Charm, Affair, Rose Official and Kitten Mischief. I’d love to see an illuminating balm for skin from Lisa – I’ve been using Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Moisture Balm and enjoying it all over again and given how seamless the blushes are it would be great to have something underneath that compliments that formula. I feel really happy these products are getting the attention they deserve. They’re thoughtful, meticulous and effective.
