SPARKLE This Saturday Night, With Glitter Lips*


As soon as it hits November 1st, life as we know it changes. Halloween's over, we've retired the cat ears & the bottle of fake blood to the back of the 'fancy dress drawer' for another year and POW. We all seemingly get hit with an abrupt, raging onset of Christmas Fever. 

You'll find yourself suddenly planning when to put the tree up, shopping for your Xmas Party Dress [maximum sparkles > minimum bodycon; so you can indulge on as much free turkey as possible at the Office meal] and reaching for those darky, vampy lipsticks over your coral, dewy shades - embracing all the berry tones & bold smoky metallic eye makeups for Winter.

We dress our homes, pets, workspaces, Christmas trees, shopping centres and blog photos with festive red decorations, sparkles & glitter... so why not dress your lips for the occasion, too? I've been trying out one of Beauty Blvd's new shades from their well renowned, bestselling collection of Glitter Lips kits recently [shade Forbidden*] and I cannot think of a better time of year to incorporate this STUNNING, red sparkly lip look into your makeup game. It's long lasting, super easy to apply, doesn't smudge when you're having a drink and you'll get over 25 applications per kit; so it's friggin' fab value for money.

As seen on the catwalk at Gucci recently, the glittery lip look [as well as glitter-pretty-much-everything] is so hot right now [bonus points if you got the Zoolander reference there.] I was blown away by how fantastic the results were from using this Glitter Lips kit tbh; I never imagined I'd love the finished look half as much as I did. Or how easy it would be to apply!

Forbidden is the perfect red shade for me. It's a classy, deep red - but with cool, blue undertones; so it makes your teeth look whiter. And I'm all about that. The glitter is so fine and of a fantastic quality; the different tones within it blend perfectly and the finish is stunning.

Application is surprisingly easy - although it does have the potential to end up on the messy side of life, if you're not careful. But hey... if I can do it, you guys definitely can! I'm usually the worst at life and the number #1 prime contender for spilling stuff everywhere... and I was incident free!

Each kit comes with a tube of Glitter Lips Gloss Bond, a pot of cosmetic grade glitter in your chosen shade and an applicator brush. The adhesive [aka Gloss Bond] applies like a lipgloss. Remember to only apply it to one lip at a time, and to keep your pout parted as the glue starts to dry... otherwise, you'll end up with a code red kinda 'my-mouth's-glued-shut' situation. Once the glue goes from white to clear, carefully dab on the supplied glitter with the applicator brush and repeat on the other lip once complete.

Beauty Blvd were not lying when they said this stuff has staying power. I rubbed my lips pretty ferociously with a facewipe and drank a mug of hot coffee with my Glitter Lips on and it did not move at all. So it won't betray you like standard lippies can on a night out; when they smear out of place, get on yo teeth and fade after about ten minutes.

The feeling isn't unpleasant either, of having the glitter on your lips. You can't feel it once applied and you totally forget it's there; the only time I was aware of it was when I rubbed my lips together and felt a bit of texture... like really fine grains of sand. So thinking ahead, if you club-necked someone; they might be able to feel that texture slightly. But who's arsed, when your lips look THAT good?!

I've been so, so impressed with my first ever Glitter Lips experience - I absolutely love the finish, the look and how much the fine, cosmetic glitter catches the light. Before I tried the kit I had visions of glitter exploding everywhere, of it being all over my face or it being really chunky pigments that would be too brash with my makeup... but it's literally the opposite of all of those things. I'm now desperate to try some of the other shades in the range to be honest... Molly Dolly, Sparkling Rosé and Hula Tallulah are calling my name & I'm not sure I can resist their allure much longer!

Have you ever tried Glitter Lips before? Is this just not the most perfect glittery trend for Christmas makeup looks that you've ever seen?!
