So, now you have your luscious lips all you need is a great lip colour to finish off your sexy new persona. I consider myself a lipstick aficionado. But, as much as I love a bold beautiful colour even the superstars have let me down in the stamina department. Often the bolder colours either peel off or just don’t have the staying power of the more natural shades. So, when someone challenged me to try an extremely dark colour in a brand that I had never heard of I did not hold out much hope. Enter Acti-Labs a French company that makes a whole host of products including a vast make-up range. Now I need to say at this point I had sworn off writing about products that would be classed as “multi-level Marketing”. Not for any other reason than up to now I have found that many of them are not great and it can be awkward because you are often dealing with someone trying to make a business from their home rather than a faceless PR.
But, after speaking to the gorgeous Kertrina I was convinced to give it a try. I was sent some lip colours that blew me away. I had purposely chosen very dark colours as they are often the most difficult to sustain over an entire day. To my shock they looked as good at 9pm as they had at 6am when I first applied them. As someone who is most indelicate when eating or drinking I definitely put them through their paces. My favourite colour was the Mega Matte espresso. Very dark with a dark reddy hue. As it was so dark I thought it would probably start peeling by mid-day. But, I was wrong, wrong, wrong!! It was perfect from beginning to end. They are all gorgeous and I would definitely recommend this lippy lot for your next beauty haul.
