A few months ago I won an Instagram competition to win a set of Mellow Cosmetics Liquid Lip Paint. This gave me a good excuse to try something new on the blog and do my first ever make up review.
Mellow Cosmetics are a New Zealand brand that is owned by Ima Asali. All of their products are vegan, cruelty free and paraben free. A huge plus for me as I am currently switching all of my products to cruelty free. All of their lip stains and lipsticks are utterly gorgeous, plus they sell brow, eye and face products. I highly recommend you check out their range here!
I received three lip stains in my prize, the colours are Ibiza, Milan and Auckland. All of the lip paints are named after cities, which according to Ima are places she would love to travel too. I thought that was super cute! In this photo the top is Ibiza, then Auckland and finally Milan.
These three have warm under tones, so great for winter. All of them go on smoothly and dry quickly to a matte finish. When I wore one of these shades during my 7 Day Lipstick Challenge it lasted nearly all day even when eating and drinking.
Price wise they sit at around NZD$20, so very affordable. You also receive free shipping to NZ, Australia, Canada and USA when you spend over $40.
Ibiza is a soft brown colour that is a perfect subtle tone for every day. Match with a neutral or bronze eye. This is a difficult shade for my skin colouring, however I feel it works with a full face of make up.
Milan is probably my favourite out of all three. It’s a medium pink that is on the slightly redder side. I get a lot of compliments when I wear this. If you want something that’s not bold but still looks like you’re wearing a colour then this is perfect.
I hope you enjoyed my first ever beauty product review!
Which lip stain shade is your favourite? Have you tried any of the Mellow Cosmetics range?
