So, i have a confession to make. Im not a regular lipstick user, i admit it. But, this lipstick. I LOVE! Like extreme love.
Ive herd of this brand before, but i always thought i would never ever suit the beautiful reds and the daring pinks, im very pale, and my lips are not the thickest. After the ZOMG! blogger bash on Monday i tried this shade on and kept it on for the whole night, i was amazed at how beautiful and rich the colour was, and how the shade suited my skin colour and my lips.
Ive tried and tested the other high street brands of reds and pinks and they are just not right, they either make my lips dry as anything or they make my lips look even thinner. Which i feel defiantly put me off trying darker shades, i just couldn't find the right one, the one i can rely on to make my lips soft, conditioned and not to bleed all over my teeth. UNTIL, this little baby popped along.
The packaging is stylishly retro, and takes the rockabilly theme to a whole new level. Its perfect handbag size and as soon as you whip it out, you know you look cool.
On the website, it gives a small description of the shade as 'a creamy matte fuchsia shade'. The lipstick smells Divine, i want to say a vanilla smell, but im not sure. It feels so conditioning on my lips, like im putting lip balm on instead of a lipstick, its highly pigmented and only takes a quick sweep to give me the desired colour.
The brand Rockalily was made by ReeRee, sick of trying to find a lipstick that suited her, she decided to take matters into her own hands and create lipsticks that will suit all skin types and that is the highest of quality. Some lipsticks are blue based, for pale skins, and some orange based ideal for olive and darker skin types.
This colour is beautiful, and looks really nice with a day look, or all out for a evening look. I love this whole brand too, its different and edgy and unlike anything ive seen before. I am in love, its such a good feeling to find something you love, especially since ive been looking for a lipstick that suits me for what feels like a lifetime!
You can buy this lipstick and many more for £14 from http://www.rockalily.com
In my personal opinion, i love it, and my whole outlook on red and pink lipsticks has defiantly changed, for the better. My next one will defiantly be a red, im torn between Rockette Red and Sailors Beware, what do you think?
Thanks for reading, and in the words of Rockalily 'Lifes too short not to wear lipstick!'
