Hellooo again lovely readers! I hope you've all had a relaxing Easter weekend however you chose to spend your bank holiday, I've been chilling out to the max playing Mario Kart on the Wii with my sister letting my competitive side get the better of me! I do feel like I've been neglecting my little corner of the internet recently which I'm not too happy about, but I guess everyone needs some down time from everything now and then. I love having this as a hobby and I never want to get the point where I feel so pressured to post that I don't enjoy it anymore!
Aaaanyway, to the review! I picked this lip colour up in boots a few months ago because as far as my research led me to believe, Models Own is a cruelty free company and I felt intrigued by this lovely peachy pale colour. I absolutely love a good nude lip and have always been guilty of trying to achieve the lightest nude possible (yep, I've even reached for my foundation at some points - foundation lips ewww!). I cannot stand those deceiving 'nudes' that actually come out some horrible old fashioned shade of brown, so to find a colour as amazingly light and peachy as this really put a smile on my face. They have a few other lovely colours too but this is the lightest shade in the range!
When I put it on it's pretty sheer in comparison to what I'm used to as I only usually buy matte lipsticks, but the colour is just what I'm looking for for an every day kind of look. It doesn't stay on particularly well throughout eating/drinking etc but it's such a light kind of balm that I didn't expect it to have a load of staying power so I wasn't phased by that at all. The application is extremely easy as you just swipe it on quick as a flash and you're good to go! Unfortunately it does have a slight tendency to cling to dry patches as can be seen in the pic above, but if I smush my lips around for a bit that seems to get it evenly distributed. The stick itself is retractable and just twists up meaning that there's no messing around with any sharpeners which is a huge plus, however the top of mine broke off in the first week or so of it getting bashed around in my bag so it isn't the sturdiest of lipsticks, but then again there is a lot of crap for it to get squished by in my handbag!
All in all I am really fond of this lip colour despite not being totally blown away by it, but at £5 you can't really go wrong!
