UD | Gwen Lipstick '714'

It just wouldn't be a Gwen Stefani collection without a bright red lippie to help us all mimic her signature look.

First of all the packaging of the lip pencils and lipsticks is divine! The gorgeous metallic gold against the black makes it super easy to find in your bag and looks cute on a vanity table. So for the past fortnight or so I have been occasionally wearing a combination of the 'Wonderland' lip pencil and the lipstick in shade '714'. I love a matte lipstick and '714' described as a ''bright red mega matte'' is the most matte lipstick I think I have ever worn!! 

It is most definitely only for the brave amongst you but I found it looks divine with a white waterline, black winged eyeliner, big eyelashes and a strong contour. For the best and most long lasting results I first outlined and filled in my lips using the Urban Decay | Gwen 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil in the shade 'Wonerland'. Next using a lip brush I generously applied my '714' lipstick and the pigment was insane!!! It gave an instant pop of colour that lasted really, really well throughout the day.

Despite the lipstick being so matte I didn't find it at all drying on my lips and it is really easy to remove. There is nothing worse than a matte lipstick that is stubborn and just won't budge!! The 'Wonderland' lip pencil and '714' lipstick are the perfect duo for creating an ombré lip look if that is something you like. 

Red lipsticks can for some women be a little like nude lipsticks in that we keep purchasing them and keep searching for the one despite having numerous shades which are the same but just a little bit different at home. Regardless this one is special. This one really gives you that old Hollywood bright red lip that we all know and love. No matter how many red lipsticks are in your life you just need to find some space for this one.

You can pick up the limited edition 'Wonderland' lip pencil here and the '714' lipstick here. Alternatively pop into your local Debenhams (selected stores stocking the collection) or House Of Fraser, Dundrum.
