No more getting jealous of American bloggers raving about Sephora Lip Stains. ASOS is here to the rescue with its exclusive Lip Whips by a company called Beauty Bakerie. They are £16 each and available in 6 colours but the ones I have are ASOS Red and ASOS Nude. First off, the packaging is uber cute! It comes in a translucent tube with a mint green lid. The red is a lovely bright scarlet shade with bloodshot, orange undertones to it. It's quite fierce but something that instantly perks up the complexion and puts a look together. The nude on the other hand, is a more subtle offering and the perfect shade of milky brown that's not too pastel or grey. Having an olive, yellow undertone, it's usually hard for me to find that perfect shade of brown but this one, thankfully doesn't have the corpse effect on me. A word of warning though, just one coat should be more than enough! They don't start crumbling with two coats but the colour keeps building on and personally, it gets a little intense for me to pull off. As for pigmentation, these are unapologetically potent and highly opaque which is what gives that flawless matte stain. It doesn't feel heavy on the lips at all and you forget you are wearing anything unless you catch a glimpse in the mirror and are like 'Whoa!'. If you're still on a quest to find a mattifying mate, try these out.
