My Lips, but Beauter (Yes, I'm not very good at word play)

We are all searching for that magic product that will give us our lips, but better. A product that looks flawless and mimics our natural lip colour while making our lips fuller, smoother and glossier. I think I have found that product for me.

The Weightless Lip Creme from Beaute in the colour Trace is described as a whisper-soft beiged pink. It is a little darker in life than in the photos - a beautiful,  creamy,  rosey pink, which is very similar to my natural lip colour. It is one of the most wearable colours I own and looks great with all makeup looks from smokey eyes to bare lids as it's light enough to look neutral, but dark enough to give some definition to the lips.

The WLC has the consistency of a light, yet creamy liquid lipstick with a glossy finish.  It almost feels like a balm on the lips as its texture is very smooth and there is no stickiness whatsoever. It is also very pigmented and lasts a decent amount of time. So pretty much the perfect lip product in my humble opinion- works like a glossy lipstick, but feels like a light balm.

The only potential downfall of the Beaute WLC is the price. The weightless lip creme weighs in at £22, but personally I think it is well worth it as the colour range is beautiful and the formula unique. The only product I can think of as a comparison are the YSL rouge volupte lipsticks (£21) as they too have good pigmentation with a similar sort of creamy finish, but wear off faster and are generally messy as they tend to melt off my lips. (The packaging gets me every time though)

Beaute can be found at http://www.cocobeau.co.uk

This product was sent to me for review purposes, but I am in love and will probably be ordering some more come pay day... I have my eye on Wanted, which looks like it would make the perfect nude :).

Have you ever tried Beaute?

Do you have your own 'my lips, but better' product? Do share! xxx

  7. I've been looking for the exact same product! A my-lips-but-better gloss. The best I've found is Rimmel Vinyl Lip (http://www.amazon.com/Rimmel-Vinyl-Brilliant-Shine-Lasting/dp/B000P22NLW). Looks a little wet, just enough pigment, perfect-amazing for a medium complexion.
    Great post and great blog. I'd love to do a collab sometime. Let me know what you think!

  8. Estee Lauder Elizabeth Pink is gorgeous but it has been recently discontinued so may be going on the internet, love the packaging of it too!

  9. My favorite is Palladio's herbal tinted lip balm. They are SUPER pigmented but still sooo nourishing. The ultimate tinted lip balm. It's sold at Sally' for only $3-5 :D They have a range of colors from a natural pink, to more bronzey shades, to red.

  10. This is a different subject but is that your natural hair color. I love the red on you. If its from a box what brand and color is it. If you check out my blog you will see I am on a mission for the perfect auburn haircolor. I have a beauty blog at emanticoff.blogspot.com. I am an aspiring Beauty Editor from New York and have tried a million products.I could never find that perfect red shade that's not too brassy so I was curious if you had any suggestions. Thanks, love your blog!
