So you may have read Emma’s post on her fear of wearing bright lippy on thinner lips and how she overcame that fear. Well I have the opposite problem. I avoid bright lippie because I have fuller lips and fear bold lipstick will make me look like a clown. Like Emma used to do, I tend to stick to lip gloss. But I took inspiration from Emma and decided I’d give bold lippy a go.
On Australia Day I was heading to the Symphony in the Domain and so decided I would try bold lipstick and took inspiration for the colour I’d wear from Uluru at sunset.
Brand/Product: Natio’s Lip Colour in Flame.
Cost: $14.95 from Priceline, David Jones, Myer, selected pharmacies or shop online.
Verdit (Yay or Nay): It took me a couple of hours to get used to wearing it but I adjusted and will definitely wear red lipstick again. I’m now keen to try other bold colours.
The lipstick itself was great. It’s enriched with essential oils and was very moisturising and creamy. I reapplied roughly every two hours.
With Flame you can also vary the intensity of the colour a fair bit by varying the amount you put on. I put on a light layer, but if you put it on thicker you can achieve a much darker, deeper red.
Yay! I will definitely try some more Natio lipsticks.
I took inspiration from some stunning ladies that wear red lipstick and definitely don’t look like clowns.
