I had never heard of this relatively new British brand, MDMflow prior to being sent these lipsticks, but now it’s complete love. MDMflow is the creation of Florence Adepoju, a 22 year old scientist with a BSc (Hons) in Cosmetic Science from the London College of Fashion. She couldn’t find a brand that represented her and her ideals so she decided to create one. Combining all of her obsessions, MDMflow was born; it’s a post 90’s influenced brand, that combines glamour with mid 90’s-00’s hip hop culture. This is a collection of the most out there lip shades, from nude to black and everything in between. They are housed in a gold bullet with the brand name written on in black, absolutely gorgeous. All lipsticks are handmade in small batches, you have to order before the 25th of the month so it can be shipped on the 30th - how amazing is that?
I received three shades Amarache, a deep pink shade, Vamp a deep berry shade and Mas Marina a funky deep blue, which is a little out of my comfort zone but received a great response on Instagram. Amarache is a great everyday shade, don’t be fooled though, it still packs a punch on pigmentation. One swipe of this creamy, satin matte lipstick yields opaque colour and coverage.
Vamp is my favourite of the three, if I could only wear one lip colour ever it would be one in this colour family, so this is right up my street. It’s a deep dark berry shade, that leans much more matte than Amarache, but this gives it great staying power. Mas Marina is a deep blue teal shade, in a satin matte finish that I’d like to think I’m cool enough to pull off, but probably not, but I’m building up to wearing this shade out.
My only gripe is that Mas Marina lipstick has completely come away from the bullet, but I’m sure this is an isolated incident, that probably occurred due to the numerous shipping processes that had to occur to get the product into my possession.
The lipsticks are £18 and I’m currently lusting after the nude pink shade SHE-RA and bright orange Von Dutch, to be honest I have a wish list as long as my arm. You check out all the shades available here.
