I don’t often do beauty reviews but when you find a product you like, it’s always nice to share it with
the rest of the blogosphere! I went out for dinner for my cousin’s birthday about a month ago to Las Iguanas in Manchester, and after painstakingly applying my makeup and making myself feel really fabulous, I realised that I didn’t really want to wear any of the lipsticks that I own. They were either too red, or not matte enough, or made my lips look small. Basically, any excuse to have a looksie for some new lipsticks? I hadn’t heard of Sexy Motherpucker Matte Lip before nipping into the beauty stores so they were definitely a welcome addition to my lippies collection!
I had a quick google before I went shopping because I knew that I was looking for a matte finish lippy, preferably applicable by crayon or pencil. I’d heard of a few different brands but a lot of the reviews claimed that they were far too drying on the skin, so I was at a bit of a loss as to how to go about choosing one. I decided to just run to boots before my train and see what I could find, and I’m honestly so glad I did.
I’m not really a big Soap and Glory product user. I’ve used a few of their shower gels and body scrubs over the last few years and they’re pleasant enough, they’re just not really something I’d go out and buy on a regular basis. I had a quick look over their makeup counter (who knew they did makeup as well as body products?) and quickly clocked onto their lip crayons.
Sexy Motherpucker Matte Lip. Sounds like a bit of me. They were matte, they were bright looking and they had exactly the two colours I was looking for. The best thing? They were £3.50 each, and Boots was running a buy one get one half price deal on the day I was in! I decided to buy the colours X and Y, a bright red colour and a musky pink which looks absolutely blooming beautiful on me, if I do say so myself! I found that my lips didn’t feel too dry after use which is obviously yet another bonus point. They are really easy to apply; you can do so directly from the stick itself or else you can use a makeup brush if you prefer. The formula is pretty smooth feeling and I found that it doesn’t cling to your lips if they’re a bit dry, it just rubs right in. The colour lasted a fair few hours on the lips (and this was combined with me eating copious amounts of food and drinking cocktails!). I am definitely an advocate of Sexy Motherpucker Matte Lip sticks now, for sure!
If you’re looking for cheap and cheerful lipsticks, then these are definitely the ones I’d recommend!
