Fearne Cotton It's All About the Lips Vamp Red lip collection gift  box with red lipstick, lip liner and lipgloss

Fearne Cotton It's All About the Lips Vamp Red lip collection

Ever since posting about the fabulous Fearne’s Favourite Hat Box I’ve been itching to get my hands on some of the Fearne make up to try out, so I was super excited to come home from work to find a wee package with the Fearne Cotton ‘It’s All About the Lips’ Vamp Red lip collection (a collection of red lipstick, lipgloss and lip liner) and the Fearne Cotton ‘Made You Look Made You Stare’ handbag compact (a collection of 10 eyeshadows).

AndyLou and I were talking about how she’s started wearing lipstick recently, instead of always only wearing strong eye makeup and she’s been sporting some fabulous bright lips like the Estee Lauder Double Wear Lipstick 02 Stay Pink and a fabulous bright red Avon lipstick.

I have never been a huge lipstick wearer, in fact I can’t remember the last time I wore any, but I love the look of a bright red lip and Fearne Cotton (even if she is slightly annoying!) definitely knows how to rock a good bright red lippie!

The Fearne It’s All About the Lips Vamp Red lip collection has 1 berry red lip liner, 1 rich red lipstick and 1 super bright red lipgloss all packaged in a cute little gift bag tied up with a bright red velvet ribbon – lovely! And even better this is included in Boots fantastic 3 for 2 on all gifts offer.

Here are swatches of the 3 colours from the Vamp Red collection…

The red lip liner is a berry red colour and is nice and smooth to apply, no dragging or pulling on your lip. I thought that the lip liner looked a little too dark to go with the lipstick and thought I might end up with that classic 90s look of dark liner and pale lips… but if you scroll down you can see the lipliner and lipstick on.

The red lipstick from the Fearne It’s All About the Lips Vamp Red Collection is a really creamy smooth texture and went on very nicely! It doesn’t have a huge amount of staying power however, so you’d need to build it up on your lip by applying, blotting and re-applying.

The Fearne red lipgloss from the Vamp Red Collection is a super bright, super glossy, thick lipgloss.

I really, really liked the combination of the lip liner and lipstick – it looked lovely and it’s definitely made me want to wear this more often. The lipstick has quite pinky undertones, so it’s really flattering and wearable despite being bright.

Above is a pic of the Vamp Red lip liner, lipsitck and lipgloss all worn at once… to be honest, this was just too much for me! It was very bright and a bit sticky and you can see that in between applying and taking the picture I managed to mess up the finish, which doesn’t bode well for all-day wear! The colour of all 3 together is so pretty though and if you were a slightly more accomplished lippie wearer, I’m sure you’d be absolutely fine!

There are also two other Fearne Cotton ‘It’s All About the Lips’ collection: Fearne Cotton ‘It’s All About the Lips’ pink lip collection and Fearne Cotton ‘It’s All About the Lips’ natural lip collection.

So the final verdict? I’m properly impressed! This is a really nice lip collection and is a perfect ‘starter kit’ for someone like me, who is keen to try out wearing red lipstick, as you have the option of choosing the intesity of the colour by how you combine the 3 products. This would also be a fab gift for the beauty lover in your life!

You can buy the Fearne Cotton ‘It’s All About the Lips’ Vamp Red lip collection online at boots.com for £10 and it is also part of the Boots 3 for 2 Mix and Match on all gifts at the moment – oooh bargain!
