From the name alone, it sounds like the Laura Geller Lip Fifty Kisses Lip Locking Liquid Color was made for all of your lip concerns, right? Long-lasting, kiss-proof and with minimal effort, Laura Geller has made it possible to create the ultimate lip with ease – finally!
Who has time for lip touch ups nowadays? For me, lipstick coffee cup transfers are only acceptable when they are Instagrammable. I’m a firm believer that if you’re going through the effort of lipstick application first thing in the morning, it’s only right that your lip should last until after breakfast!
In my eyes, no feathering, no budging and no transferring should be made mandatory. And luckily for us lipstick lovers, Laura Geller has been listening. So get excited, I’m about to find you your perfect Fifty Kisses shade below….
• True colour that lasts for 50 kisses
• A smooth formula that lasts stays put for 8 hours
• Feather resistant
• Transfer resistant
• Paraben free
• No mineral oils
In between satin and matte is where you’ll find the Fifty Kisses finish with its creamy and buildable formula. My favourite way to wear the Fifty Kisses lip colour is to start minimal and build it up, because believe me when I say this – the pigments are strong! Each Fifty Kisses Lip Locking Liquid Lip Color could double up as two lip shades depending on how heavily you apply it – the finish can vary between barely-there through to intense, so if you’re heading straight out from work and you want to look a little different, simply add more colour and voila – you have a more dramatic night look.
To avoid your lips looking over-dried and in need of moisture, Laura Geller has infused a plethora of hydrating ingredients into the Fifty Kisses formula. The longevity aspect is due to the added Proprietary Polymers Complex, which basically locks your lips with 8-hour lipstick hold. Just think all of those kisses you could fit into 8 hours!
Also, softening apricot butter keeps your lips smoothed and comfortable, whilst an added dash of almond oil colour corrects your lips, making sure your application always achieves a high colour pay off, no matter the shade. I know some liquid lip colours can drag as you apply, but not with this formula. Laura Geller has added sunflower extract into all of the Fifty Kisses liquid lipsticks, making every application a smooth one. What’s not to love? Scroll down to see the shades…
This brown-based nude adds an elegant, polished finish to your everyday look. Even if you’re going statement with the eyes or your base is minimal, this simplistic shade complements every skin tone and every makeup look. For me, it’s the safest shade to chic – you can’t go wrong Beige Bite’s warming, peachy-nude tone.
The colour payoff with Ravishing Rose is impeccable, which is perfect as you can achieve two looks with this delicious brown-rose hue. For a slight flush of colour, tread lightly. Dab on slowly to create a minimal pink-brown hue. If you want to go bolder, apply the doe-foot directly to the lip to create a beautifully deep and bold brick red shade.
Talk about a statement shade! Isn’t this just the finest red wine hue that you’ve seen? Makeout Merlot was made for those who like their lips to be the main event in their makeup look. This purple-burgundy hue makes sure your lips won’t go unnoticed, even after 50 kisses!
If hot pinks are your thing, Melon Crush has your name written all over it. As soon as I swatched this shade, my mind automatically skipped forward to holiday season. Picture Melon Crush paired with a golden tan and a glowing highlight – this vibrant shade will add a touch of glamour to every look.
A deeper version of the above Melon Crush shade, this bold pink-red is the perfect ‘white teeth’ hue. Statement and eye-catching, Pink Pucker ignites a signature cat-eye flick and flawless complexion. So, if you’re looking for a shade that transforms your complexion to zero to hero instantly – this is your one.
Bright lip lovers, I’ve found your perfect shade – it’s Orchid Love! This fun purple lip colour adds a pop of unexpected colour to every skin tone and look. If you dare to be different, the mauve undertone and lilac base shade lets you get creative with your everyday makeup shade choices.
Isn’t there something rather innocent about this shade? The lightest pink in the pack, its milky bubblegum hue looks great on all skin tones, particularly those with fairer skin. Dab lightly onto your lips for a subtle pop of colour, or if you prefer a bold pastel based pink, double up on the layers. It’s all dependent on your signature style.
If you aren’t usually a fan of red lips, I bet Ruby Romance has changed your mind. Replendent with a dark pink undertone, I would describe this hue as a statement, pillar box red. The Ruby Romance shade brightens and uplifts your complexion, finishing off your makeup look with a classic film star edge, similar to that of Marilyn’s signature red lip.
As you can see above, the shades all look very different when next to each other. But I think you’ll agree that each shade is beautifully unique with a high colour pay off. I’d love to know what you think about the full collection, tweet me your favourite shade over at @EscentualChels!
