Lord & Berry lips & lashes

Although Lord & Berry products are now becoming more widely available in the UK and they are increasing in popularity, I believe they are still a very underrated brand. With MAC style packaging (sleek and black) and quality but for a slightly cheaper price I think they're a brand you should be taking a look at if you haven't done so already.

I'm a big fan of Lord & Berry's lipstick crayons and already own three, so when I had the opportunity to try a few more products I jumped at the chance. The first product I received was another 20100 crayon lipstick*, this time in the shade Audace, which is a shade I don't actually own. What I love about the lip pencils is they are so easy to apply as they're in pencil format and because you do need to sharpen them, which I personally prefer over wind-up ones, you can always get a precise point back if you wish by sharpening. I find these so easy to wear and long lasting. The only thing I'm not keen on is the lids as they do have a tendency to crack if you push them on too far, but then if you don't push them on far enough they can come off in your bag. As the pencils can be quite soft it's also quite easy to catch the lid on the product and end up in a bit of a mess. It's also a little frustrating that the shade names are printed in ink on the lids and they do gradually wear off.

I also received a Vogue semi-matte lipstick in China red*. Whereas Audace is a brighter cherry red, China red is a deeper, darker slightly more orange or brown based red. I do find this one a little more difficult to apply preciesly, but then I do have a complete lack of lip line in places that in general makes lipstick application quite difficult for me. Although this is semi-matte it apples smoothly and doesn't feel particularly dry and with one swipe you can get a good solid colour. This is comfortable to wear, despite edging towards matte territory, and the semi-matte appearance makes it long lasting.

At first I thought I'd been sent two lipsticks, but the product that looks exactly like the Vogue lipstick is an Active spa lip balm in neutral*. This does look exactly the same as the lipstick, even down to exactly the same shape bullet, but the bullet is a white (clear when applied) balm. The balm is currently one of my go to's, meaning it's a good one.

The Back in Black mascara in Deep black* I find a slightly unusual one. When I first opened this I noticed two things straight away; just how skinny the brush is and that it feels like very little product is removed by that little thing in the neck of the tube as you remove the brush. It looks like there's a solid blob of product around the base of the brush and I did think this could end up very messy.  This makes me think of cake make-up (stage make-up), which is usually thick and pretty dry and generally not great to have to use. This product is really quite dry and not a lot of it transfers over to your lashes at all. This is actually a very subtle mascara, think along the lines of Benefit's new They're Real primer, except this is black rather than brown. This is good for subtly defining lashes, separating them and coating each one in a light covering of black, but it can be quite frustrating because you can't really build it up or get much product on the lashes.

I think you'd either love or hate this. If you want something similar to the They're Real primer it's great, if you want something you can build up or that provides lots of length or volume then I think you'd find this very disappointing. I'm kind of on the fence about it and probably wouldn't choose to buy it myself.

If you're a fan of MAC but want to spend a little less I'd definitely suggest trying out Lord & Berry. The crayon lipsticks are £10, Vogue lipsticks £12, the lip balm £13 and the mascara also £13. You can find them on ASOS, Cult Beauty, Look Fantastic and the Lord & Berry website.

Have you tried any Lord & Berry products?

    1. I don't own a lot from Topshop, just one lipstick (although I can't currently find it so I might have got rid of it!), and that is an off white/cream colour with black stripes! x
