The week before I left for my holiday, I was very kindly given the opportunity to be sent a lipstick from top Italian makeup brand Deborah Milano for review. Word about this makeup brand is becoming quite the name around the beauty community and all for good reason. Before receiving this Deborah Milano Lipstick, I already had knowledge of the brand, and have to say I was really excited to try out one of the products and see what all the hyped up fuss was about.
I was kindly sent the Deborah Milano Shine Creator Lipstick in the shade 8, which is a gorgeous bright fuchsia pink which gives a lovely pink flush to your lips. Like most makeup brands Deborah Milano have a range of different lipsticks in their line which all give different finishes. The Shine Creator line is a collection of lipsticks which give you plenty of hydration, a pop of colour all with the high shine of a lip gloss. I personally love these kind of formula's of lipstick, so the Shine Creator Lipstick is right up my street. Here's what Deborah Milano have to say about their Shine Creator Lipstick -
The High Shine Creator Lipstick brings together three proven properties: the shine of a lip gloss, the comfort of a lipstick, and the hydration and protection of a lip balm.
When applied the lipstick feels ever so creamy and light on your lips and I love how for such a creamy formula, these are in no way sticky to the touch or feel sticky on your lips. Instantly your lips feel much more hydrated, a similar feeling of applying a good lip balm. The formula has a glossy shine that a good lip gloss would provide, but it has much more of a lipstick feel to it. If I had to compare this to another lip product, the Revlon Lip Butters immediately come to mind. In the bullet the colour of shade 8 looks vibrant and bright, however once applied you are left with a more sheer finish and it leaves a lovely flush of pink to your lips and if your like me and like more of a vibrant lip, then two coats of this product is a must to get that more 'pink' look. Because of the moisturising formula of this lipstick, staying power and longlivetiy is not going to be hours upon hours, but I do find that you can get a good few hours of wear from this lipstick before needing to reapply. Even when it does start to fade, I've found that your left with a faded wash of colour to your lips, which still sits evenly.
I absolutely love the way that this lipstick looks on, and one thing that I notice right away, even before application, is its gorgeous scent. I'm not the best at describing scents, but as soon as I smell it, I get a whiff of sweet smelling berries. It reminds me of something I would smell on a dessert and if it wasn't for the fact I knew this was a lipstick, I might say it was edible! As well as this lipstick smelling just delightful, I'm also impressed with its packaging. Deborah Milano have in-cased this lipstick in a pink sheer packaging, which I think is pretty and a good reflection of the product inside. I love how the logo of Deborah Milano has been embossed on top of the lipstick, which is a really nice touch.
Overall I'm really impressed with this lipstick and I can see me getting a lot of use out of this over the summer months, especially seeing as the lipstick has SPF 15. The Shine Creator Lipstick retails at £8.50 which is around the average price for a good lipstick these days. I personally think it's worth every penny and I can definitely see myself adding a few more of these to my lipstick collection. If you fancy treating yourself to one of these lipsticks you can find them on the Deborah Milano website here - There is quite a selection on offer when it comes to shades, so there is something for everyone. However if your not looking for a lipstick, be sure to have a good browse on the Deborah Milano website as they have a good range of makeup and beauty products to offer.
