Superdrug have a lot to answer for when it comes to my ever expanding lipstick collection. I always manage to buy a new lipstick or gloss whenever I 'pop in for shampoo' etc
One of the newest lippies to join my make up bag is Beauty UK's 'Snob'
Now, I have had my eye on this one for a while but never got around to buying it. However after many weeks of being unsure, I just thought 'meh why not' So into my basket it went.
This shade is such a 'me shade' as my cousin would probably tell you. I always go for mauve's or dusky pinks, and I'd say this falls into the latter of the two. It's a dusky, blue toned pink and it's absolutely gorgeous!
I'd never tried any of Beauty UK lip products before this one so wasn't sure what the formula and staying power would be like.
Let's kick it of with pigmentation, application and formula shall we? The pigmentation is intense, the swatch on my wrist and lips is only one swipe, and you can see how opaque it is. I do find it to be a little drying to apply, it isn't as smooth as a glossier lipstick but I think the formula may be a matte even though it doesn't say so.
However, it doesn't feel so matte or drying on the lips. It isn't super smooth but I can mush my lips together with ease (does that sentence even make any sense? I'm sure you girls know what I mean) And it isn't so dry that you have to drag it along your lips, but it doesn't glide on so you do have to apply a little more pressure.
Now for staying power: I applied this just before leaving for work at 6:30 am and when I checked again at 8 am it was still pretty much perfect. However, the next day I had a little snack in between those times and did notice when I checked again, it had worn off quite a lot and I needed to reply. However, which lipstick really stays on strong after eating?
Without eating, I'd say I got around maybe 3 and a half hours decent wear before needing to touch up, which I think is pretty good going!
This is £3.49 from Superdrug and the Beauty UK website
