Recently I received a lipstick from Miss Sporty in my summer beauty swap and unlike any other lipstick I own - this one is RED! I'm a big fan of miss sporty - it's a very affordable make-up range and they have some great products, I especially like their nail polishes and their entire range seems to be under the £5 mark which is amazing!
'Malaga' is a bright matte red shade, which is almost orange-y toned! It's not quite a pillar box red, but it's a very bright and bold red which is gorgeous! Packaging wise, it is presented in a plain navy blue bullet - so it doesn't look expensive or snazzy, but the packaging is sturdy and will take a bit of knocking around in your handbag!
As you can see from the swatches, this is a very pigmented shade and in just one 'swipe' a bold, bright colour is achieved which is true to the colour in the bullet. Although this is a matte shade, it is not drying - which can often be a problem with matte lipsticks. There seems to be a slight sheen and moisturizing texture to this, both swatched and on the lips. I'm really impressed with this and it's less than £3 from Superdrug.
I think I quite like this on, I've never worn a red lip before - this picture was taken inside and I'm not sure I'm quite brave enough to wear this out yet.. what do you think? The staying power was pretty good, it didn't bleed and the colour lasted a long time - although it's a bit of a bugger to remove, it almost stains! The shade has previously been compared to Lady Danger from mac, so it's worth checking out if you're a fan of the red lip look - I'll definitely be looking into some other shades as the formula is fab!!
Are you a red lip fan, or have you tried any products from Miss Sporty?
