A new brand, a new matte liquid lipstick.
Matte liquid lipsticks are a little bit like marmite to me, either love them, or hate them. I've tried some from a few brands, MAC, NYX and sleek to name a few. Some I've loved, some I've liked and others I've hated.
I've come across so many gorgeous shades in matte liquid lipsticks that I have fallen completely in love with, got them home, tried them & then completely hated them! Which sucks.
I was recently asked to try out some goodies from a brand I'd never heard of before, "FIINX" and I thought I'd give them a try. I was sent the shades 'night shadow' and 'advance' both absolutely gorgeous shades! The brand gave me the option to choose the shades I wanted to try but I left that up to her, I told her I didn't really like red or bright pink shades and these are the two she sent me which are just beautiful.
I applied 'night shadow' the day after receiving them as it was a gorgeous shade which went with my outfit I was wearing that day, bonus! I received so many compliments about the colour and how much is suited me, I was so happy! However, it was quite, okay very drying. I first applied it with nothing on my lips at all. Just the product and it felt horrible. The staying power was amazing, I'd eaten, drank and talked for England at work but it was just too drying.
The next time I wore then I applied my Lush lip scrub and my Elizabeth Arden lip balm to give my lips a little moisture, my lips can be quite drying at the best of times anyway. This combo really helped and the products weren't as drying, which I am happier about!
I love the shades so much that I even add my favourite NYX gloss over the top whenever I fancy a glossier look. For £8 you really cannot go wrong!
Lot's of Love
