Beauty BLVD Glitter Lips
Glitter lips have been a growing trend and to be honest, I’ve always been fascinated by how they apply and wear on the lips. Beauty Blvd have released their own lip kits which include a tub of fine glitters, a glitter lips gloss, and a small dual ended applicator.
I received three of the kits to try – Forbidden (a dark red glitter), Cherub (an iridescent light pink) and Breathless (a deep blue). I only used the shade, Breathless on my lips and swatched the other shades for you below.
I’ll be completely honest, and say that these are not the easiest to apply. You really need to have patience when applying these as you need to ensure you coat your entire lip to avoid patchiness. I found it most difficult to apply on my outer corners and my inner lips, but also found that I had glitter transfer on my teeth as well. I’d say that for a faster application, possibly try using a bigger brush than the one they provide in the kit and use the kit brush for more precise application.
Whilst wearing the glitter on my lips I felt them to be quite drying and rough in texture, however quite surprisingly there was very little transfer once applied as the lipgloss is a great glitter glue. I think for me to enjoy this lip kit more, I would’ve preferred a glitter liquid lipstick as that would’ve been a better application process and possibly even more comfortable to wear.
Overall I think these are fun lip kits, and definitely suitable for festival seasons, but be prepared to spend a little extra time getting ready.
Beauty BLVD Glitter Lips are priced at £12.50 each.
