[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I think if we turned the clock back even just a year ago, the new Love Me Liquid Lip Colour would have been a matte formula. Mattes are falling out of favour somewhat and reflecting that, Love Me Liquid Lip is satin.
As you’d expect, they’re power packed with pigment – all 18 shades. Lipsticks are now very much back on the shopping list as we come out of crisis mode (along with high heels and handbags apparently, although I’ve been tempted by neither).
The first colour I have is Tres Blase, a kind of nude-ish rosewood that has enough about it that it’s a suit-all shade. These colours can be a bit draining on me but this one isn’t – it’s made more powerful by the pigment intensity.
The second shade is Gift To The Gods which is a very deep, winey red. I’d like to be the sort of person who can wear this colour, but reality strikes – I’m not! With this kind of shade, you’re very reliant on it applying evenly and not fading patchily. The Love Me Liquid Colours promise a 12 hour stay and I did find the last very good – but must be honest and say I didn’t give either the full 12. I would expect, as a matter of course, for a shade like Gift To The Gods to need some maintenance to stay perfect. The satin finish is lovely – as is the formula, which contains argan oil and shea butter and I didn’t experience any feathering from it – important if you’re going full on with reds.
They’re £19.50 each HERE, which sounds positively reasonable compared to yesterday’s £62 number. Cheap, even :-)). Non-affiliate HERE.

Gift to the Gods reminds me of the original Chanel Vamp nail polish/lipstick and I’m glad to see it. So many of the colors that look like dark reds have pulled very purple instead of the red brown/black that I would prefer, so perhaps this means that the red browns are coming back! They make me look a bit like a vampire since I’m so pale, but I love it.
I love a contrast look – deep on pale and vice versa – good for you!
Wow, Gift To The Gods looks right up to my alley! Love bloody reds, but they are not so easy to find in good quality and right hue (last disappointment was Lancome jewel-something lipstick – color itself (Pigeon blood) is good but *beep!* thing bleeds like nothing else ever did on me (I actually thought bleeding of a lipstick is due to lips tiny vertical lines I don’t have yet… wrong, it also can be bad formula). Need to try! Thank you so much! And indeed, comparing to Hermes… 🙂
