“ Brand: Virgin Vie / Type: Lipstick / Subcategory: Lip Stick / Suitable for: Lip „
I bought this lipstick online on Bigwardrobe.com - I paid only £5 for this, whereas on the site it is retailing at £11.50. I was not prepared to pay that much for something I had not tested out previously!
I usually were pink and red shades of lipstick, so I opted for this shade "nude shimmy" for something a little different, and something I could wear ever day. I was not disappointed! I am quite pale skinned so I only wear vibrant coloured during the evenings as I feel they stand out to much. This colour was a slightly orangey shade which matched my skin tone really well.
The colour has a slight shimmer to it, and is long lasting! I would definately buy this lipstick again, and recommend it, too.
It's really versatile as you can wear it during the day, but it's also really pretty for a night out because of the shimmery tones!
I'd definately advise you to give this a go!
I don't usually use Virgin Vie make-up.... but was offered a fantastic deal in December where you pay £2.50 for postage and packing, and receive this Virgin Vie lip stick for free (worth £12) so thought 'why not try it out!!'
When it arrived, I remember thinking it was packaged well and the actual lippy was small and cute - it has a sleek dark blue casing (as can be seen from the image) and the lippy twists out...
It is very moisturising, rolls onto the lips easily and the size allows it to fit into any handbag and be taken out... This particular shade is very natural so I wear it during the day/evening. The lippy also has a gentle scent which is not overpowering, but I think (from other lippies I have) the manufacturers add this so that you know when the lipstick has become 'off-date'.
Originally I purchased this because a Virgin Vie lippy for £2.50 was well worth it, but now I would purchase the lippy and try other products in their range.
