This post was meant to be 'out' midweek but the dreaded overtime struck again - which resulted in a few sessions of 'ronking' with the laptop on my knee as I tried to blog! I should explain that 'ronking' is an Anglo-Indian term for dozing whilst sitting (with or without laptop). Ronking = late blog post! Anyway ... better late than never!
Enough of the waffle - here's my Soap & Glory Super-Colour Collagen Boosting Fabulipstick in 'Perfect Day' (what can I say - I had a voucher to use!) and here's how Soap & Glory describe it ...
"Featuring ULTIMELT™ lip shine & shaping technology, 3-D PLUMP™ peptide complex, Shea Butter, Monoi Butter & Vitamin E. Hyaluronic acid and Ceramide 2 (for aging repair and visible wrinkle reduction) help to give a soft, smooth, dewy, plump colour-fill pout." source
Swatched above it has a real dusky/fleshy pink tone to it, which is what attracted me I reckon. I've been using without a lip balm, unless my lips feel super dry and then it doesn't hurt to stick some on underneath. Either way it glides on with a 'satin finish' and is quite well pigmented. As regards staying power - I'd say it's pretty standard, blotting and reapplying always helps of course but I do need to stick more on after eating. Other than that it lasts me a good couple of hours and fades away evenly leaving a non-patchy (quite pleasant!) stain. The colour is not too 'in yer face' but enough to give a bit of a pop (just a little one mind!) and is a great 'everyday' shade when I want a change from the usual nudes ... perfect for Autumn!
For once I'm not 'ronking' ...
This is my second Soap & Glory Fabulipstick - you can see 'Naked Beige' here. They come in at £9 each, not so cheap but I usually wait until there is some sort of offer on, gotta love those offers! The ones I have are not super long-wearing or anything (is it such a chore to have to re-apply lipstick anyway?!) but they are great for sticking in your bag for everyday use and the colours seem so wearable that I feel the need to try another quite soon. I'm thinking 'Man Trap' or 'Red My Lips' - what do you think?
Are you a fan of the Soap & Glory Super-Colour Fabulipstick? Which is your favourite? Have you been 'ronking' lately?
