What I lack in eyeshadow bravery, I like to think I make up for when it comes to choosing lip colours.  Not one to shy away from a bright lip, I first saw Don’t Blink Pink featured on the lovely Clumps of Mascara blog and within five minutes, I had checked out my eBay basket on Paypal containing the luridly bright pink and another, lesser-spotted (on my lips) shade, orange – in the guise of Purty Persimmon.

First things first, these lippies are cheap.  Cheep cheap!  I paid around £6 including shipping from the U.S. for both – they also feel cheap.  They wobble about in their housing like brightly-coloured mini Pisa replicas and you’ll struggle to get a neat edge without the help of a lip brush because the formula is so, so hard.  They do warm up a little on the lips but overall, there is no luxury or even any attempts at luxury in these bullets.  What you will find though, is colour.  And plenty of it.

They’re practically neon on the lips, albeit a wearable neon.  They scream summer and make me feel supremely happy when I catch sight of my lips in the mirror.  Honestly? They make me wanna do a duckface.  Living up to their name, they offer great longevity and although they’re somewhat drying, I didn’t suffer any real problems or discomfort on well-prepped lips.

I’ll admit that I haven’t quite mastered the courage to wear the orange outside of the house just yet but I did get compliments on the pink last week.  If nothing else, this is a really good jump into the deep end for those of you who want to get to grips with some bright shades but don’t want to be spending all of your pennies on something you may not get much wear from.  I bought these from seller: senoritadelsol.

What do you think?  Are you going to be rocking some bright lip shades this year?

  1. Yowza! That pink! I might, might, might dare to wear the orange if I was feeling super-confident and perhaps had already had a glass of wine, but Lady, I applaud you for rocking that pink. It’s nigh on day glo! Looks awesome on you though! x

    The pink really suits you! I love when I see women out and about rockin’ a bright lip :)

  3. They both look amazing on you, the fringe is still looking fab too! x

    Omg heading to the department store tomorrow, I’m glad we get these over here…actually my partner hairstylist from a shoot, Tricia, told me she loved these…and showed me hers, promised myself since then and since now that I’m getting a few. Love you more for posting these <3

    Oh gosh these look so beautiful on you. And yeah – it takes some time to get used to wearing those bright lippies but now and days that’s all I can see myself wearing. :) You’re so beautiful, darling.

    I love bright lip shades, but I decided not to buy more lipsticks, don’t know where to put the old ones! I am really interested in Color Icon palettes- ever since I won them here, I wanted to try more, but was wary of buying from international sellers
