Review | Born Pretty Heart-Shaped Lipstick*

I was recently sent this lovely lipstick* from Born Pretty; now, I'm not usually much of a wearer of lip products, and my day-to-day face doesn't include much more than a lipbalm, but how do you resist a heart-shaped lipstick!? Simple answer: you don't.
Born-Pretty-Heart-Shaped-Lipstick
The outer box is super-cute! Just look at that little sleeping chick(?) at the top! The lipstick casing itself is quite pretty too, I think, with a shimmery pale-pink base and a clear cap which shows the design of white hearts on the silver bullet within. The top of the lid is faceted to look like a rhinestone, and the lid clicks on securely enough that I'd be reasonably happy carrying this in my handbag for touch-ups.
Born-Pretty-Heart-Shaped-Lipstick-#68
#68 is a bright, vivd true red shade which applies on the lips quite true to how it looks in the bullet (and much brighter than it looks on Born Pretty's product page...). It has a blue undertone which works nicely to make the teeth look whiter! It's way outside my comfort zone and as such isn't something I'd really wear except for special occasions... The formula is smooth and creamy, though, and it applies nicely without dragging or feeling dry on the lips, and it feels comfortable once it's on. I've found it's quite difficult to apply neatly from the bullet, but using a lip brush it's fine.

When it comes to wear-time, this is good for around three hours on me, although it does leave behind a stain on the lips which is quite pretty too. It's quite moisturising so it transfers easily to cups etc., but it doesn't seem to cause any dryness or chapping, although I do always use a lipbalm first.
The Born Pretty Heart-Shaped Lipstick is available in ten shades, priced at £2.41 here. Remember you can save 10% store-wide with my code 'JESSMK31'. Do you like the look of this lipstick? Are you a lip-product lover, or do you save them for special occasions like me?

  2. Gorgeous colour. Looks creamy and the heart-shape is super cute. I'm not one for wearing vibrant shades on a day-to-day basis either though when I have dared to I've been delighted with the results - so perhaps it's a confidence thing? Looks lovely on you. Tx

  11. Okay, first - your lips are amazing! Total lip envy right now. As for the lipstick, I think the heart shape looks pretty but it's just not practical. I imagine touch ups are a nightmare. It's a gorgeous shade though. x
