Lottie London is a new brand that I have recently discovered. I was browsing around the make up counters in Superdrug (I know, I have an addiction!) and this particular stand really caught my attention as I walked past. I decided to try out two shades of the iridescent lip foil toppers and I am excited to share my thoughts on them!
How to wear them
These are perfect to use as part of your every day make up, but I think they would be amazing for creating a super glam look, especially for an event like a festival. It is not easy to find a lip shade that works with a festival eye as at the moment, the festival make up trend for 2018 is a super sparkly style using stick on jewels around the eyes and forehead, chunky glitter, full feathery lashes – the works! These lip foils were exactly what I was looking for to wear to Made festival at the weekend and it completed the look I was after. These lip foils would also be so nice to use on holiday – I’m picturing a nice tan combined with the shimmer of these shades which would be gorgeous.
The lip foil tube is transparent so you can see the colour of the product inside which is really handy and although they come unboxed, I really love the holographic silver stars on the side of the tubes which are a pretty addition to the packaging and these look great in your makeup bag or on your dressing table.
I hadn’t actually heard of lip foils before so I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but when I first swatched these I was impressed at the bright pigmented colours and was so excited to test these out.
There are four shades to choose from and I am loving the sassy names which are ‘U Wish’, ‘Drop Out’, ‘Sinner’ and ‘Over it’. I think my favourite shade is ‘U Wish’ which looks like a glittery white shade at first until it interacts with your skin when it turns into a shimmery holographic pink sheen. I would say that each of the colour options available would suit a variety of skin shades also which is great.
Formula and finish
Formula wise this glided onto the lips like a dream and I was surprised at how pigmented they are as the consistency is shimmery and semi-sheer. I also like the fact that they feel smooth and silky, with no thick stickiness which I really don’t like with lip products and try to avoid. It took seconds to dry down and after one coat and you’re good to go! When the light catches on these lip toppers they look so pretty and add such a nice finishing touch.
Worth the money?
At £5.95 for a tube, you really cannot go wrong. Drug store make up is really having a moment and I am finding that you don’t always need to spend a fortune on top end designer make up brands. You can equally get a fabulous product for more than half the price and often just as good! I would say that for this price, these lip toppers are a good deal. They probably are not something that you would choose to wear every day, but they would be a great addition to your lip product collection.
You can purchase the Lottie London lip foil range here or you will find the brand is stocked in most Superdrug stores.
I hope you enjoyed hearing my thoughts on the Lottie London lip foils. As you can probably tell I’m so impressed.. if you love shimmery lip glosses that are not sticky as much as I do, then I definitely recommend giving these a try. Let me know if you’ve tried anything from Lottie London before and what you think about their products.
