The Fuchsia Lip

For a bold lip that isn't just a red I always look for those brighter pink shades.  I have found a few that are different in many ways, and all last exceptionally well on the lips. These three drugstore bargains are just what I was looking for.

To start off with is the Loréal Glam Matte gloss in Coral Denimista (middle). To me this is the perfect shade, it's a mix between fuchsia and coral giving just the right warmth. Now I was a bit confused how this gloss/matte hybrid would work but after trying it out I was amazed at the effect it gave. It goes on very smoothly without streaks and leaves your lips feeling velvety smooth while hydrating your lips with a thick gloss. Although this is technically a gloss, it isn't sticky one bit.

Very similar to the loréal glam matte is the Sleek matte lipstick in Heartbreaker (bottom). This is my favourite out of the three because it is truly matte but at the same time it's very creamy because of its vitamin e enriched formula, this means it isn't drying on the lips at all. The colour is bright and opaque with just one layer.

On the more colder shade side is the MaxFactor Colour Elixir stick in Vibrant Pink 15 (top). This has a water-based formula making it glossy but not sticky and also is light-weight on the lips. With this pen applicator you can build up intensity easily. The formula is waterproof and is a real pain to get off, which means lasting really well. It also means that the colour fades away gradually and you don't get those lines lining your lips when the colour in the middle has gone.

What is your go to bold lip colour?
