Valentine's Bold Lip Looks

For Valentine's Day I wanted to create a few bold lip looks because I think they're a fun, expressive way to show your personality. I left the rest of my make-up quite natural looking to really draw attention to the lip colours (except for my penciled eyebrows because I'm addicted). All three of these lipsticks come out quite differently to how they look in the tube, a lot lighter, brighter and more colourful!

This stain is a very vivid pink colour. I was a bit scared of it at first! Ordinarily I don't think I'd be brave enough to wear this in the day, but I think it's a great look for a night out when you want to feel a bit glamourous. As the colour is so intense I'd definitely recommend applying with a lip brush instead of straight from the bullet to get a clean line.

The staying power is incredible; this is a really long lasting stain. I wore it all day without reapplying and it faded really nicely and evenly, to a more subtle pink shade. I think it would look awesome with a little black cat eye flick.

A gorgeous pink colour, this is super moisturising. I love the crayon shape, it makes it really easy to apply and top up. The lasting power is very good, around three to four hours before I had to touch it up. I needed to re-apply after eating but was pleasantly surprised to see that it only left a very faint pink mark on the white teacup I was drinking from.  

Because it's so moisturising it really doesn't feel like wearing lipstick at all and I think my lips actually benefit from wearing it. I really want to try more of these!

I was a little apprehensive about this colour as red is not a shade I wear often. But I love it! The formula is very smooth and moisturising, lasting about three or four hours, which I'm happy with as it doesn't dry out my lips.

The tube has a pop up design; you press the bottom, the lid pops up and then you twist up the lipstick as normal. I love that it has this little extra so I know it's safe to throw in my handbag and not worry about the lid coming off. I've been so impressed with everything I've tried from the B. range so far and I can't wait to get my hands on some more :)

Do you like a bold lip or prefer a more natural look? Let me know if you'd like to see more make-up posts as I really enjoyed doing this one!
