Eyes Lips Face Mineral Lipsticks.
Eyes Lips Face is a brand that I love for affordable, good quality make up and I definitely count the lipsticks from the mineral line as some of my absolute favourites. Before going through my collection I thought I had more of them than I actually do so I'm thinking a sneaky order might be necessary very soon!
The first lipstick I tried from the range is called Nicely Nude which is a pretty neutral fairly light pink colour. At first I was a bit disappointed as I was expecting more of a true nude rather than a pinky nude, but I actually really love the colour so I got over it! It's very similar to my lip colour and therefore a really natural lipstick that will go with so many different looks and be appropriate for many different situations. I wore this to a couple of job interviews last year and it didn't give me that 'oh my gosh you've got really pink lips' look but it was just enough to look as though I'd made an effort. Does that make sense? In the tube this has a really pretty gold shimmer to it but you don't end up with glittery lips at all which is nice.
As summer was approaching I wanted to branch out from my usual pinks and decided to get Cool Coral. This looks so gorgeous in the tube and the colour this gives to the lips doesn't disappoint. On my lips this is quite a pinky coral that's super pretty and also really wearable. I've really missed being able to wear this, when I had pink and purple in my hair corals just looked so bad on my complexion, but now my hair is pretty much back to it's natural colour I'm going to be wearing this more often!
Natural Nymph is what I was expecting Nicely Nude to be and I think this shade was introduced to the line a little later along with a few other colours. When I want a nude lip, which isn't as often as it used to be, I always reach for this one. I don't find it drying at all like I do with GOSH Darling and it's also doesn't wash me out which the Darling lipstick can do. It's more of a peachy nude which suits my complexion nicely and I really like it.
The last mineral lipstick I have is Pouty Petal and it's probably my favourite out of the four. Essentially it's a slightly darker and rosier version of Nicely Nude so while it still looks quite natural, it's a bit more obvious. It has the same gold shimmer in the tube but it doesn't look or feel glittery on the lips. It's just a pretty, very wearable lipstick that I use a lot.
The formulation of all of these lipsticks is wonderful. I don't find them drying, they last a decent amount of time too & at only £3.50 each I think these are really good additions to anyone's make up collection!
