“ Brand: Chit Chat / Type: Lipgloss / Suitable for: Lip „
I saw a feature in More magazine not too long ago about a new range of budget beauty products that were finding their way in to Poundland stores. Being on a bit of a budget as a university student, but also being a bit of a makeup addict, this range sounded like it was pretty much MADE for me!
I do enjoy a good bargain beauty buy, websites such as e.l.f (eyes lips face) offer a whole range of beauty buys all costing £1.50 and ranges that can be found in Boots and Superdrug such as 2true and Natural Collection all cater for beauty on a budget but I'd never really shopped for make up buys in a pound shop, I was intrigued however and knew that I wanted to try some of this range out!
I ended up buying the ChitChat mascara and a Plump It! Lipgloss. The packaging of this gloss was very minimal. It comes in a pale pink plastic squeezable tube with a black lid. I was excited to try it, to see if it lived up to the standards of other lip glosses that I have at home, ones such as Maxfactor glosses and No7 one that I enjoy applying for a night out.
The tube is full of 15ml worth of gloss. It feels firm like there's a lot in, the applicator is plastic with a hole, you squeeze the tube and out comes a thick, clear gloss. I knew just from the consistency that this was a gloss that would stay put and look lustrous. Applying was easy, it smoothes on nicely, just like any other standard gloss. I was really impressed!
The gloss also stays on for ages I found. I applied a layer before I left my house and it was still on about 2 hours after ( I hadn't eaten or drank anything yet though). This impressed me and I loved that it was just such a simple gloss, not too over the top which is good for me because I don't really like to add a lot of colour to my lips as I always tend to do more elaborate eye make up instead of focus on my lips.
I really want to try more of the Chit Chat range as I'm so impressed with this gloss. It claims to 'plump' lips, I'm not sure if my lips were more 'plumped' for having used this gloss but they definitely looked glossier and silky. A result that I was happy with!
I would definitely recommend this gloss to other women who are maybe on a bit of a make up budget, it's worth the £1 investment all the way!
