Colourpop Persuede Me

I've always been a gal who loved a bright lipstick, so discovering my love for nudes this year has been a revelation! I debated on this particular set for months before I finally snapped it up, mostly because it's a lot of paler colours that I wouldn't necessarily wear. In the end, armed with the knowledge that my Mum would love the colours I thought were too pale for me, it had to be mine.

This is Colourpop's Persuede Me collection. It contains 6 lippie stix in my personal favourite formula, the matte x formula. It's a super matte lipstick that is really comfortable to wear and I'm obsessed.

The lippie stix themselves are classic Colourpop, silver font on glossy white tubes that have a good sturdy click when you close them. The box itself is really cute for storage, it's got a chunky feel to it and is magnetic so it's not about to open and let your goodies inside escape.

I decided to do something I've not done before for swatches, and share photos in the shade, and in direct sunlight to show the way light can impact the colour on your skin.

Left to right this is Ziggie, Daydream, Le Freak, Goldie, Hotline and Upside Down. 

Ziggie is a deep terracotta shade, Daydream is a cool toned brown with a hint of purple, Le Freak is a stunning red wine sort of colour, Goldie is a traditional brick red, Hotline is a peachy pale brown, and Upside Down is a light peachy tone. 

Upside Down is definitely too pale for me. My natural lip colour is pretty pale and I'm not into that early 2000's look. Hotline is maybe a tad too pale, but with a darker liner under it it's workable. The rest are all shades I know I'll get a ton of wear out of. I think my absolute fave is Le Freak, I just love the deep wine tone of it, it's going to be a stand out for autumn for sure.

I'll be posting photos on my instagram of me wearing all the shades as I go along so be sure to follow me @kittyramblesalot and don't forget to enter the giveaway in my last blog here.

Much love,
Kitty xxxx

I love to be a bad influence and you totally have to try them!

i think Goldie is my favourite, i'm also too scared to go for the nude lip, i'm all about bright and bold.

All the colours are nice, but I think my favorite is the day dream.

Looks fab. :) One of the ones I think would fit me the most would be one of the natural colours. I don't think I can rock red and dark colour with my complexion. :D

This is so me, I still reach for the brights when I'm doing important things or going out, but for an easy one for work I'm loving a nude lately!

it's so lovely and wearable

I don't think I've ever met someone who couldn't rock a red, it's just a matter of figuring out your undertones!
