I Love The Smell of New Lipstick In The Morning!

After I finally got my Student Loan last week (yes, yes, dirty students and all that), one of my very first purchases was a Rockalily lipstick, in " Roulette Red". Lo and behold, two sleeps (and many working hours later), and I got a little parcel with my brand new lipstick. 

Exciting times!!

The manboy is still confused as to why I spent a good 5 minutes smelling the lipstick before actually using it, but I really do love the smell of new lipstick in the morning :)

A week or so ago, I did a review of MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick, and as previously mentioned, the main complaint I have heard was the texture, it being too dry and therefore a bit of a nightmare to put on, keep on and wear it comfortably.

Well, no such issue with the Rockalily lipstick. Its incredibly creamy, just like a good ol' shiny liptsick of previous generations, and those not into the matte look, but sets into a lovely matte look, without dryness and without the bittyness Ruby Woo can unfortunately provide.

...and it gets better (no, really, it does) it lasts FOREVER. Ok, maybe not forever, that would be equally impressive as weird, but it lasted literally all day. I can prove it :)

This is my excited face (in case it's not obvious enough) - after numerous cigarettes, many a can of coke and lunch, and the lipstick is still there.

By the time I got home, I did reapply, but I like LOTS of lipstick on the go, but I merely had to top up, as the colour was still visible.

All in all, very impressed, and only one question remains, which colour do I get next, or can I get away with one of each? :)



  1. It looks like such a lovely colour - I can't wait for their blogger event!

  2. it's brilliant, so excited to get the other ones, and of course the new shade. Still keeping my fingers crossed for an invite :) x
