Taking your Lip Game To Another Level This Fall |The Matte Lip


If there is one lipgloss that has been taking over the Instagram makeup feed of late it’s hands down Lime Crimes notorious Salem.

For as long as I can remember I’ve shied away from such bold lipsticks, often thinking that they were for special occasions and only whipping out my old time favourite Ruby Woo by Mac, when my face was covered in makeup, or I had a glamorous night out on the horizon.

This was of course until the likes of Lime Crime and brands like Colour Pop, LA Splash Cosmetics, Coloured Raine as well as a few other brands, introduced the world to what I call the matte lipgloss, better yet a selection of seriously friendly women of colour matte lipglosses.

After eventually dragging myself off YouTube and Instagram [where there are a tonne of great matte lip swatches and reviews], I took to amazon and ebay, and of course you know what happened after that…

The damage? Vampire by LA Splash Cosmetics, Raven Claw by La Splash Cosmetics, Tulle by Colour Pop and Cherry Blossom by Coloured Raine.

The rich deep dark tones are perfect for the autumn/winter transition and you can bet I definitely won’t be waiting for a special occasion before I start playing with these. In the meantime if you still aren’t sure then these videos may just be all the convincing you need to add these to your autumn/winter collection. Easy on the wallet ladies, the colour options are endless!


So what’s the verdict ladies, worth a try?

It’s Here, Our Official Wedding Day Video!

Lately I’ve been experiencing the post wedding blues! Had you asked me this time last year how I envisioned our wedding turning out it wouldn’t have come a fraction close to how it actually did. Settling back in at work was my biggest concern after the wedding and honeymoon, I mean anyone off work for 4 weeks journeying from one warm country to another tropical island would most likely sink into a small pit of depression when returning back to cold and rainy London, no?!

Okay so perhaps I’m exaggerating READ MORE »
