Must Haves for Summer: Bright Lips

by Madame B Fatale on January 16, 2014


Makeup wise I can’t think of anything that screams summer to me more than bright lips. I know some people would argue and say bronzer but to me (being on the paler side) it’s always bright lips.

Here are a few of my must haves which all are mattes. The main reason for this is that I find mattes always last longer and you can always add a touch of gloss if you want.

Australis newly released Velourlips Matte Lip Cream in Tok-I-o which retails at a low low price of $9.95 and is a brilliant bright purple with pretty good wear without eating or drinking without a straw. Can be found at Priceline or the Australis Website.

The next two are by Stilla, Long Wear Lip colour – matte in exhilarating ($32.00) which is a fabulous almost neon pink (and looks awesome layered with Tok-I-o for an ombré effect if that’s your thing) and Stilla Stay All day liquid lipstick ($36) in carina, a bright reddy coral.  Can be found at Mecca Cosmetica.

Last but not least is Lime Crimes Velvetines ($24) Red Velvet stays on so so well without drying your lips and I’m going to have to pick up the other two colours (Pink Velvet and Suedberry) ASAP! Its a gorgeous true red and is a staple in my makeup bag all year round. Can found mainly online  Makeupnet are the stockists.

    OMG!!! The red velvet is so pretty. I super love the reddish shade. Wearing this kind of lippie will def make anyone look sexy and daring. Love it!

    I’m so excited, I’ve just ordered the Pink Velvet Velvetine! Quick question – how does the formula of the velvetines compare to Velourlips? I wish Lime Crime made more colours, so if velourlips is comparable, I might pick a few up. Also, have you seen the LE Velvetines they’ll be launching soon? They’re super-dark and gothic (there’s a black one!!)

    • weird my comment is on my ipad but not here. They are very similar in consistency but the velvetines I’ve found last longer and have a bit of a smother consistency. They don’t dry out my lips even though they are really matte but with that in mind I do always make sure my lips are hydrated when I apply it (like with any matte lip product really). Love the look of the up-coming ones I think i will have to get them all but the red and brownish toned ones for sure! I hope they keep expanding the line I’ve been really impressed with them.
