Kissable lips don’t have to cost the earth.
Here at VIP we love trying out the latest beauty trends to keep you in the loop on the best products and with Valentine’s Day in mind, February’s focus is on lips.
From kissing to pouting and smiling, the day of love is all about those smackers.
We’re looking at our favourite lipsticks this month under €15.
Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick €12.50
This collection is diverse in shade range from Hey Nude to the rich Rubi’s Cute and deeper colours like Brownette. It’s lightweight and has a creamy formula that feels more like a gloss gliding on the lips but sits nicely without drying out. It’s long lasting too and sits in place throughout the day.
Catrice Power Plumping Gel Lipstick €4.50
The most bargain-friendly on the list is the fabulous Catrice Power Plumping Gel lipsticks. It comes in 10 shades that are light and moisturising thanks to the hyaluronic acid which helps to give you full looking lips. The product ensures high shine too, so they are perfect if you’re trying to switch it up from your traditional matte nude. Some of the colours are slightly glittery too, and the price makes them the perfect range to experiment with. And, always a plus, they are cruelty-free and vegan.
SoSu So Kiss Me Lip Kits €12.95
The latest venture in Suzanne Jackson’s SoSu makeup range is her lipstick collection. The products come in a set with a lipliner and lipstick for just €12.95. The lip liner glides on smoothly and helps to give the lipstick more definition. The colours vary slightly depending on your own lip tone making the nudes perfectly personal, with colours like Bare It and My Ex Calling giving a wide range of options for those who like to opt for rich but subtle colours.
Carter Beauty Word of Mouth Lipstick €6.95
Named after twenty women who have inspired founder Marissa Carter, you’ll find shades like JK and Meghan in the range of 20 lipsticks. There’s a gorgeous pale nude called Saoirse and a powerful bright red called Bey. It’s smooth and lightweight and feels soft on the lips. It stays in place and is long-lasting too! For €6.95 we’re all about this range.
Max Factor Velvet Mattes Lipstick €10.99
Not a new product by any means but we couldn’t make a list of brilliant lippys without adding this classic. The velvet in the name is well and truly earned for this gorgeous creamy lipstick. They are moisturising too, and perfect for balm lovers who stay away from lipstick due to dry lips. The colour stays on long-term making it the perfect day to night product.
