Barbara Daly Tesco Lipstick
Advantages: Gorgeous colour, smooth texture, inexpensive
Disadvantages: There is a negative? Not for me
The Barbara Daly for Tesco collection has become a bit of an addiction for me. Every time I go in now, I usually end up coming out with another product from the range in my Tesco bags. I have concealers, eye shadows, blushers, foundations, etc. This time it was a lipstick and it turned out to be a pretty good buy.
*About the Product*
A unique square-edged lipstick that allows for more accurate application with classic and fashion forward colours in fool proof finishes.
*What Does Barbara Daly Say About Cheek-to-Cheek Blush?*
The secret to these lipsticks is the angled, ergonomic shape which makes application easier and more accurate. Lipsticks are a great staple for your make-up bag; they can really lift your face and look. They are great to wear on their own or by slicking lip gloss over them for a more polished evening look.
I apply Barbara Daly for Tesco Lipstick straight from the tube rather than using a lipstick brush making the application of this product easy. As the lipstick has a soft, creamy texture it glides smoothly onto your lips with a single onto your upper and lower lip. Perhaps using a lip liner prior to putting on the lipstick will add definition but with this product it is not a necessity.
Barbara Daly for Tesco Lipsticks are great to wear on their own or by slicking lip gloss over them for a more polished evening look therefore apply before lip gloss if this is the look you are going for.
*Price and Availability*
Barbara Daly Lipstick is only available to buy from Tesco in stores as far as I am aware. You can find this range in the bigger and even in the smaller Tesco stores. Unfortunately, it cannot be purchased via their website but this may change in the future.
This lipstick retails at just £5.06. This price is fair for the quality of the lipstick and when you consider the price of alternatives that are on the market. I'll definitely be buying this lipstick again as it is such a great product.
The packaging: Barbara Daly for Tesco Lipstick is packaged in a hard, black plastic tube with a back pull on and off lid. The tube itself is about 3 inches in length and reasonably slim in width therefore it is the perfect size to sit nicely in your make up bag without taking up too much space.
The style of the packaging is simple and maybe a tad on the boring side but I also think that is looks fairly stylish. I don't actually think that many lipsticks are packaged in a cool way unlike lip glosses therefore Barbara Daly has done an adequate job with this product.
Texture and colour: The texture of this lip stick is soft and creamy. It is so smooth that is glides easily onto your lips making the application simple and easy. I tend to put a little foundation on my lips before applying the lipstick to make it even easier. The lipstick is one that will have hair sticking to your face on a windy day, although it is mainly lip glosses that have this effect rather than lipsticks.
As for the colour of the lipstick, it is great when first applied and for the next few hours afterwards. I like the colour because it is pretty much the same colour of the lipstick itself which is not always the case with lipsticks. Sometimes you find yourself with a very different colour on your lips.
Staying power: The staying power of this product is actually pretty impressive. With the cheaper lipsticks that I have bought, the staying power has always disappointed me but Barbara Daly Lipstick for Tesco is fantastic. I have found that this lipstick will stay put on your lips for between 2-3 hours without reapplication if you don't plan on eating. In my book, this is pretty impressive as some don't last longer than 5 minutes. This means that a simple reapplication of the lipstick as it starts to fade is all that is necessary to keep your lips looking great all day long.
Longevity of the product: I actually have 2 different colours in this lip stick now and both of them are not even halfway through the stick and I have had them approximately 6 months, perhaps a little longer than this. And considering I have used them regularly, perhaps not every day but I would think about 4 times per week, I think that this is pretty good going.
Is this lipstick a unique square-edged lipstick that allows for more accurate application with classic and fashion forward colours in fool proof finishes? Yes, it most definitely does. The shape of the lipstick itself means that it is easy to apply and effective in appearance when applied.
Does the angled, ergonomic shape makes application easier and more accurate? For anyone that struggles to apply this lipstick I just have one word. How? It really is that straightforward. The slant of the lipstick makes the application almost foolproof.
Range of colours: Barbara Daly for Tesco Lipstick is available in 16 different colours. These are: Innocent, Cashmere, Watermelon, Gypsy, Rose, Darling, Sugarcane, Icon, Nude, Attraction, Clover, Honey, Peony, Sorbet, Naturelle, Coral. The colour that I have this lipstick in is Innocent (a gorgeous pink colour) and Honey (a pink/orange colour which is perfect for when you have a slight suntan). I think that this is quite a large range of colours and that you should find the colour you're looking for within this collection.
*Would I Recommend This Product?*
I highly recommend Barbara Daly for Tesco Lipstick. It's a product that I seem to have taken to fairly instantly due to the sleek packaging, effectiveness of the lipstick as well as its excellent colour and staying power. So if you want a high quality product that doesn't have such a high price then Barbara Daly for Tesco Lipstick is the one that you're looking for. Value for money is most definitely the case!
Tesco have allowed me to find yet another superb make up product in the Barbara Daly for Tesco range in this lipstick. I bought it after using the blusher which is excellent and I have not been let down in this purchase. This lipstick is long lasting, great looking and fairly inexpensive. Buy it and you will not be sorry!
