I've never really paid any attention to the MeMeMe stand in Superdrug, mostly because it always looks like a mess and a million other people have had their grubby hands in the products. It also looks like it could go with a good deep clean to get rid of the layer of dust and the fingerprints on all the products, but the general cleanliness of the stand is another story altogether.
I was recently sent a few bits from the brand so I thought I'd do a review of the lipsticks as they definitely caught my eye first. I call them lipsticks but MeMeMe have them listed on their website as 'Long Wear Satin Lip Cream'. If it looks like a lipstick and it smells like a lipstick, it's a lipstick. There's really no need for all the 'long wear' and 'lip cream' business... In my opinion anyway.
The shades I was sent were Coral Cloak, Pashmina Pink, Berry crush and Tuscan Red. I knew from the get go that I was going to love Tuscan Red if the sticker on the bottom was anything to go by but I knew better than to judge a book by its' cover. Or a lipstick by its' label.
The packaging is sleek and matte black which makes it look quite high end compared to other High Street brands out there.
A closer look:
Besides the fact that Coral Cloak looks more of a tangerine shade to me, the lipsticks themselves are actually quite nice to use and are really pigmented. All of the swatches above are a single swipe so you can imagine how easily they would apply on the lips and you wouldn't need to keep applying because the colour actually lasts. They're all very creamy and moisturising so reminds me of MAC amplified lipsticks but without the MAC price tags. The staying power is actually pretty good too and I found that I only needed to reapply after a couple of hours which is impressive seeing as I wore Tuscan Red to a wedding and spent most of the day eating and drinking.
MeMeMe lipsticks are priced at £8.50 and available from the MeMeMe website or Superdrug stores nationwide.
Are there any other MeMeMe products that I should look at next time I'm in Superdrug? I've heard good things about the nail polishes so maybe I'll start there.
Until next time...Keep swivelling those hips in your
