After discovering the brand NV Colour cosmetics just last week, they very kindly sent me some further products to try out when they read my review! I picked out a couple from their website that really caught my eye, and have been trying them out this weekend. The first review I’m posting is of the gorgeous NV Chunky Lip Crayon in Sugar Rush.
Look at this cheeky guy, hiding in his box! Firstly, I do absolutely love the packaging of NV Colour products – it is fun, bright and perfect for the brand. As a reference point price-wise, the Crayon costs £5. It is in line with brands like Barry M and Sleek, and the quality is definitely on par with those huge brands.
Let’s take a closer look!
Although I adore lipsticks, I do have rather a soft spot for lip crayons – they’re just so easy to use, and if the colour is sheer enough they can look just as precisely-applied. I’ve been looking for a lip product of this shade for a little while but haven’t found anything quite right…could this be just the one I’ve been after?
I would describe the shade as candyfloss, which is fitting considering the actual name of Sugar Rush! It looks quite frosty, which worried me slightly as frost shades don’t tend to suit my pale skin and blonde hair. However, I never like to judge a product before I actually try it out, so popped some on my lips!
Just for a bit of background, my lips have been VERY dry lately so I was hoping that this would provide a little moisturisation as well as colour. Could it deliver on all counts?
I LOVE IT! I don’t usually just come out with such a bold statement in reviews but it really is gorgeous. The colour is exactly how I imagined it would be, and the formula is incredibly moisturising. In fact, it almost feels more like a balm than a cosmetic product which is just what I need!
I can’t recommend checking out these products enough. I feel like I’ve stumbled onto a well-kept secret in the beauty world and really want to spread the word!
What do you think of Sugar Rush?
