FashionistA Double Take Long Wear Lipstick: Red Carpet & Coral

FashionistA is one of the brands sold at Superdrug which has a lot of really good items at great prices. Katie Jane Hughes did the make up for the recent PPQ show at London Fashion Week using FashionistA products – if it’s good enough for LFW then it’s good enough for me!

One of their products is the Double Take Long Wear lipstick. It comes in a metallic red tube, which is quite high-street, but eye catching, and seeing as it’s only £7 for a full sized lippie, you can’t really complain.

I have two of the seven shades – Red Carpet (shade 6), and Coral (shade 7). Both lipsticks are really highly pigmented – one swoop of these across my lips totally covered them. They have a slight taste of french vanilla to them, which is pleasant, and feel very moistursing as you put them on – they seem to glide across your lips.

Red Carpet is a true red colour which is very glossy. I would recommend wearing a lip liner to help prevent it from bleeding. It lasts well – the swatch on my hand was quite stubborn when it came to trying to get it off!
Coral is absolutely gorgeous! I thought it was going to come out a proper orange – so was so pleased to see that it was this beautiful soft yet bold colour. It doesn’t last quite as long as the Red, but even after eating a meal, the colour still remained. I’ll definitely wear this one a lot.
Does your local Superdrug stock FashionistA? Mine doesn’t unfortunately, but when I find one that does I will definitely be trying out some more of these lipsticks. For £7 you can’t really go wrong!

    Both shades suit you so well – I must have a closer look at Fashionista as I usually ignore the stand!

    You have the best lips Alice and those shades look gorgeous. I usually ignore Fashionista too, as I'm a bit of a snob with make up. I'll have to try some of it out.
