[sample/affiliate] With matte lipsticks firmly on their way out (yay) these creamy, lip softening colours are very welcome, particularly in peak dry lip season.

It’s not just the packaging that’s pleasingly shiny – the finish is lightful without veering into gloss territory – maybe what you’d describe as ‘satin plus’, Love Me lipsticks are for you. If you’re still in Camp Matte, steer clear.

The texture isn’t a weightless one – it’s reassuringly ‘coating’ so it won’t be gone within half an hour. There’s a sense of grip to it that reminds you not to lick it off. They have the ubiquitous vanilla scent that disappears quite quickly (thankfully) and if you’re in a kissy mood, there is a little transfer so you might want to air mwah instead.

The shades I have here are (from bottom to top): La Femme, Laissez-Faire, Vanity Bonfire, As If I care and E For Effortless. Vanity Bonfire looks best on me, but I also like Laissez-Faire, which once on the lip looks deeper than it does on my arm. There are 24 shades at £17.50 each HERE, non affiliate HERE.
