I love it when a makeup product claims to be Holographic, I almost see it as a challenge! So far, I’m yet to come across a single holographic makeup item (apart from nail varnish) how disappointing. Before I begin this review properly, I’ll just put it out there that this lipstick is another holographic fail but that’s not to say I don’t like it.
I was shopping in Primark with my bestie when we both stumbled across this lipstick. I think I recall we both actually did little squeals of delight! My friend Natasha is just as girly as I am and we both love a quirky makeup product. This was also placed among their mermaid themed makeup which made it extra appealing. The packaging is simple but cute. The lipstick itself is blue and looks quite intimidating but actually swatches as a pretty shimmer of colour. It’s not as intense as it looks in the tube at all but is much more wearable and pretty.
This lipstick can be worn alone or over another colour. It has a sheer finish and doesn’t feel drying.
As you can see from the lip swatches above, it looks much prettier over another lipstick. I absolutely love the finish over the pink shade I chose – it added an extra element of iridescence.
The Cosmic Kiss Lipstick is sold in Primark stores and is £1.50.
