Models Own Hyper-Brite Matt Lipstick

Apologies to those who dislike more than one post per day, but I thought this deserved it's own post, following my post a little earlier.

As mentioned in my previous post, today I discovered that Models Own have some new LIMITED EDITION lipsticks in Boots and online.

Hyper-Brite Matt Lipstick!
 
4 shades available, sadly the retail park didn't have a tester of Flaming Red, so I couldn't swatch that one :-(

The Swatches:
(Oh, how I love to cover my hand in products every time I go to Boots! Much fun.)

Instore lighting:

Outdoor lighting (at 7:45pm, going a little darker):

Top to bottom:
Orangeade
Pink Hawaiian
Annalise's Pink


I originally planned to get Orangeade after seeing it in town earlier but on swatching, I wasn't sure it would suit me.
Naturally, I wanted Annalise's Pink, as it is pink...and I have WAY too many pink lippies but as I say 'they are all slightly different shades of pink!'. Annalise's Pink (lovely name!) is gorgeous and bright.
I was good and avoided the pink, trying to tell myself I have bright pinks in the form of MAC's Candy Yum Yum, Barry M's shade 52 and Lime Crime's Countessa Fluorescent.
So, I chose to go for Pink Hawaiian, as I don't have a lipstick like that :)

Pink Hawaiian:







Now for the lipstick on my horridly chapped lips...

Before:

After:



Silly face for comedy value:


(Excuse these photos, I look pale, have chapped lips and tired eyes, plus a sore appeared on my waterline earlier...wth?!)

My Thoughts:

Really liking this :)
It is slightly matt(e) but did appear quite glossy with a few strokes, not a problem, I love the colour and texture!
Bright.
Long lasting.
and smells yummy (who doesn't love a tasty smelling lipstick, Hello MAC!)
Great value at just £6 each.

I would recommend trying these, but remember, they are Limited Edition, so dash to Boots or get on the Models Own website, sharpish!

What Models Own Say:

'Keeping with the namesake, this is straight off the runway! Available in four fabulous Hyper-Brite shades and a vanilla-berry scent, these lipsticks will create the perfect colourful pout.'

Unfortunately it had gone dark out by the time I got home from the retail park, so I was unable to get a photo of the lipstick on, in natural lighting but I will get one on here ASAP!
I would do it tomorrow...but this lipstick is a bit TOO BRIGHT for work...

What do you think of these?
Have you tried them?
Are you going to purchase any?

    1. Haha, thank you! I was being lazy that evening and was going to paint Models Own Beach Party on top of the polish I already had on but once I started I decided to switch it up and just do some rough nail art :)

  11. The colour is gorgeous, I think I'll have to try a colour like this out- really bright colours look awful on me but this looks like a happy compromise!xxx
