Hollywood Red by Maybelline




There's this boots (a drugstore for you non-Uk folk) quite near where I live and its just one of those shops that you can't leave without spending a ton of money there, I mean it even has a Benefit bar! So I was there a couple of weeks ago picking up some nail polishes as I do fairly often and Maybelline had their 2 for £10 offer on and well one thing led to another and here we are!

Maybelline's Colorsensational lipstick in 540 - Hollywood Red.

I have a love hate relationship with red lippy, I really want to be able to pull of that really sophisticated red lip that just oozes French glamour but I'm a pale Scottish teen who definitely does not ooze sex appeal. But never the less I will persevere, the name of the lippy may have influenced my buying it as well *just sayin'*. This lipstick just feels so moisturising and the colour stays all day, it even lasted an entire coffee-drinking school day! By combining this red lippy with my rather large geeky Missoni glasses I got so many "you look like Taylor Swift" comments - which is always a good thang.

  8. I've been meaning to pick up a couple of these but they have no testers in store and I couldn't see the colours through the packaging. Looks gorgeous though xx
