Glitter Lips With Beauty BLVD

Glitter is very on trend right now, obviously since its summer and festival season!

So when Beauty BLVD asked if I wanted to try out some of their Glitter Lips, I was quick to say yes, as I'm a sucker for a bit of sparkle. These little kits retail for £12.50, so a little pricey in my opinion, but not too bad. I picked the shades 'Vintage Pretty*' and 'Cocoa Loco*'. Vintage Pretty is a dusky pink shade, and Cocoa Loco is a brown shade. 

I'll be truthful, I wanted to love these but I just don't unfortunately. Its an absolutely brilliant idea, and having glitter lips would be so cool, especially for a festivals. However, its so tricky to apply these. The 'glitter gloss' smells very strong of what reminds me of superglue, which is quite off-putting I must say. Nonetheless, I applied it to my lips and obviously it dries down clear and the smell fades which I could then deal with. It comes with a small sponge applicator to pop the glitter on with, and to be honest its sooo hard to pack enough glitter on enough for it to be properly pigmented. 

I don't want this review to be completely negative, because I truly believe this is a good idea. So, instead of using these kits on my lips, I decided to use it on my cheeks. Which works wonders! Just pop the gloss onto the cheekbones and pack the glitter on, and it won't be going anywhere. Perfect for festival wear thats for sure. The two colours are so pretty as well, its a shame they just don't sit on the lips so well.

  6. I'm not a big fan of the idea of putting glitter on my lips! I think I would stick to my checks too, which to be truthful, is even better this festival season!

    1. Its a strange concept I'll give you that - but when applied to the cheeks these were lovely!

  7. Sounded like it would have been great if it was easier to pack on the glitter! It looks like such a pretty glitter too!

    1. Definitely, the colours are so lovely - just popped on the cheeks are nice though!

  8. I have this in ruby slippers, I do really love the product but agree it's hard to use. I wore it for New Years eve and from midnight onwards I was conscious it was just gonna peel away and start falling off. In the future I would probably just sweep a bit over a red lipstick, using on the cheekbones sounds like a good idea too though!

    1. I wish it worked the way I wanted it to, but it just didn't sadly - cheekbones is the way forward!

  9. Ooh such a cool idea and it's a shame you weren't a massive fan, but I think it's really great that you tried using the product a different way which worked for you!xo

    1. I'm glad I tried it out by putting it on my cheekbones because it actually worked so much better that way!

  10. I can imagine these would be hard to apply - getting glittery lips doesn't seem like a simple process. Glad you were able to find another use!

  13. I think buying a metallic lipstick would be an easier way to do it or I just press a powder highlighter over a gloss. Glitter is so messy! Thank you for sharing xxx
