Holly Stevens Lipstick Palette

I have recently tried a new lipstick palette from Holly Stevens Cosmetics.

First of all let me tell you about Holly Stevens Cosmetics. It is owned by Steven Hutchinson who aims to provide high quality designer make up without the designer price tag whilst attempting to challenge the beauty and fashion industry to prove that natural beauty is more attractive. Have a read of the inspiring story behind Holly Stevens Cosmetics here.

The main thing I love about the Holly Stevens Cosmetics range is that their make up items are all listed by hair colour, showing you which colours would compliment which hair colour best. I think this is a brilliant idea and have never come across a company who do this before.

The lipstick palette I have is 'Infinite Lipstick for Le Brunettes' which consists of three very subtle shades that you can wear for both work or play. When it comes to daytime lip colours, I often do tend to reach for the more subtle colours as I don't want to look too made up for work and prefer a more natural day time look. The three shades in this palette suit me perfectly.





First of all there is the colour 'Ponytail'. Ponytail is described as a light-medium bridal pink. This is a gorgeous pink shade which is perfect for wearing both in the day and at night. I have always loved pink shades when it comes to lipsticks and this one is just the perfect pink colour, not too dark but not too pale and has a lovely glossy effect to it.



Then there is the colour 'Too Sweet' This colour is a light apricot colour. This is the most sheer of the three colours and gives your lips a nice glossy shine to them with a hint of colour. Perfect for a more natural look to wear throughout the day.



Finally there is 'Sexy Heels'. Sexy Heels is stated as a glossy honey colour. This comes out a little less sheer than the other two colours and is a lovely nude shade with a slight glossy finish.



Overall I would personally say my favourite is 'Sexy Heels' as I tend to have used this colour up the most due to the fact that I am really loving nude colours this autumn.


                                     (From left to right - Ponytail, Too Sweet, Sexy Heels)



I find this palette perfect to carry around in my handbag with me. The fact it has its own lip brush inside to apply the lip colour makes it even better, as it doesn't take up much room in my bag and I can just top up whenever I wish throughout the day.

The palette is only £20.99 and I would strongly recommend it if you are looking for a subtle coloured lip palette to carry around in your handbag.

Has anyone else ever tried anything from Holly Stevens Cosmetics?

Love Lauren

  3. I never even used a lipstick palette before, let alone that brand. Don't they dry out quickly when packaged that way?
