Trying out the dark side

Last week I ordered a lipstick from Amazon by New Eve. Nope I had never heard of them either! For £3.99 I really wasn't expecting that much but I've been dying to try a darker shade on my lips but  I hate using testers in stores because they have so many germs and they're really messy. I also didn't want to pay a lot for something that didn't suit me, so I thought this would be a great just to see how I get on. 

So for £3.99 you get a lipstick and the matching gloss, which is pretty decent I think. But again, I didn't hold out much hope because cheap lipsticks are generally not very pigmented, rub off after 5 minutes and full of glitter (which I hate more than anything!)

However, I was pleasantly surprised. 
This looks a little red in the picture but it's a beautiful burgundy colour! Other than the fact that it's a little messy (but what dark lipstick isn't?!) it's really great value for money. It went on beautifully, stayed on well and it wasn't the least bit drying. 
If, like me, you struggle with dry lips- make sure you exfoliate and moisturise them prior to wearing this because I feel like it would definitely stick to and highlight dry, chapped lips. Fortunately I was having a pretty good day when I tried this and my lips were the smoothest they've been all winter! 

This lipstick/gloss might be from a virtually unknown brand but I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking to move over to the dark side but struggling to justify paying a lot for a new lippy that you might end up hating! 

Peace and love xxx
