Hello m'lovely Trustinvoguers and newbies! Today might be my last post for a while, due to having 2 exams next week and one the week after. Hopefully i'll squeeze one it at some point! But please bare with me! However, it's not all gloom! Yesterday I trudged to the York Designer Outlet with my mum and sister, and the only affordable shop in there really was the 'Cosmetics Company Store'. Let me get this straight. This is the BEST makeup store EVER. They sell produts off at a much cheaper price than they originally sell for within other stores. They have products mainly from Mac, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, and Clarins. Of course, perhaps unpopular or out-of-season products from them, but who cares! Getting a Bobbi Brown lipstick for a fraction of the price suits me just fine!
I wanted to literally buy loads and loads from Mac and Bobbi Brown, however i'm pretty short of cash this month due to going on holiday with the girls in July! (YAY). So, this time around I just purchased one Bobbi Brown lipstick. Sometimes it can be tricky to find a decent colour swatch, as usually there are dull browns and weird neon purples! But if that floats your boat then it's right up your street! - if not, then you're lucky to spot something. Yet, when they first stock up it's great.

This is the lipstick that I purchased, the Bobbi Brown lipstick in 'Red 10'. This is a beaaautiful colour,
which is described as a 'fire engine red'. I was tempted to pay the full price for the 'Russian Red' Mac lipstick, but I opted for this classic instead. This Bobbi Brown lipstick only cost me £12.75! Yep, you can pop ya eyes back! Just £12.75!! Usually, Bobbi Brown lipsticks retail for around £18.00, which is insaaane but totally worth it. This why I decided to go for Bobbi Brown instead of Mac, as it's in a higher league and I basically get more for my money.
One of the main things I'd say about this particular product, is the GORGEOUS packaging! Personally, i'm such a sucker for beautiful high-end packaging such as Chanel or Dior, but Bobbi Brown is just as perfect. I love the sleek black case with the gold detailing, so pretty!
Bobbi Brown say "This creamy, semi-matte lipstick gives lips instant polish with rich, full coverage. Wear alone or pair with Lip Liner or one of Bobbi's Lip Glosses - depending on your desired effect. Black lipstick cases feature metallic chrome detailing." You got that right!
This is the colour that comes up as a swatch upon the skin. It looks a lot darker on the actual stick if that makes sense, but on the skin it's such a sultry deep red, think of Marilyn Monroe crossed with Scarlett Johansson! It's very matte(in my opinion), and quite pigmented which is always nice. However for me, I think I prefer more moisturizing/shiny lipsticks.
And here's what it looks like on my lips!
