Have I Found A New Lip Staple in Bleach London's 'Washed Up Mermaid'?


Be a real life mermaid

There's one thing that I love apart from pugs, coffee and pizza with all my heart. And that's makeup. More specifically, lipsticks. In the past two years I've fallen completely in love with liquid lip kits and those ones that make a look stand out. I'm talking purples, blacks and now blues!

With some money gifted to me, I went into Superdrug and picked up the 'Washed Up Mermaid' lip kit for £12 from the Bleach London counter. It wasn't until reaally recently that I found out they branched into makeup. So I was pretty excited to give some of it a whirl. (Especially after reading some great reviews online) You probably know BL is all about those crazy hair dyes. And now they have crazy makeup... Which amazingly is vegan and cruelty free wooo.

While the red shades were sold out, I was pretty stoked to pick up the pretty turquoise blue colour as I've been after a lipstick that stands out to add to my current crazy collection. It comes with a lip liner - which is slightly smaller than I'd like. And the lip colour which is in a pretty simple designed tube. But can we talk about the box it came in, it's so cool I don't want to throw it away... I'm weird.

Now onto the application. I decided to pair it was a peachy nude look on the eyes, just so the lipstick stood out. The lip liner glided on so smoothly and with just one layer of lipstick, I had my dream turquoise blue lip look. The lipstick is a matte, and did not feel stickly nor drying at all on the lips. In fact, I love it even more because you don't even know it's there.

The pigmentation is amazing and the stay is pretty good - especially when you need to keep hydrated throughout the day. For the money I paid, I'm really impressed and I'll definitely look into buying another lip kit soon. But for now, I'll think about saving up to try their eyeshadows... Will I say this is a new staple, yes I totally would!

Have you guys tried any Bleach London makeup?
