12 April 2016


For the last couple of weeks or so I have been sitting biting my lips as I await the day I can share with you something exciting! 

I love affordable cruelty free makeup brands that offer a selection of vegan products, so when my favourite cosmetics brand, Saturated Colour, asked me to review a soon-to-launch shade of their much loved LipSStick, there was no question about it!

If you are a reader of my blog you will be aware that this is not the first time I have spoken about Saturated Colour, nor is it the second time. In fact, it is the third time after reviewing their Locked Lips when the brand launched a year ago and most recently, swatching the collection of LipSStick’s I own myself.

Today however, I bring you something new. 
There is a new colour of LipSStick that is due to launch on April 13th at 12PM and I was kindly sent it to review.

1st Base is the new shade on the block and is joining the existing collection of 11 fashion forward colours already available for purchase.

“1st Base is a real 90’s brown that won’t let you down” and I couldn't agree more! I have been wearing this LipSStick a lot since I received it, and with the pinky undertones it keeps the look fresh and not at all harsh.

One of the things I love about the brand is that not only are they against animal testing or that they create vibrant colours fit for everyone - their moisture enriched, creamy formula keeps your lips hydrated all day and doesn't go clumpy at all. You can also apply more of the lipstick for a more pigmented look, or stay light for only a hint. For such an affordable product at £7, the quality is amazing. I also like to pair this with the Make Me Matte Lipstick Mattifier which creates the perfect 90’s lip look in matte that lasts and lasts! 

Lottie came in once she heard the clicking of the camera and didn't want to miss out on the opportunity. ;-)

The colour and the pigment of the lipstick is too good to be true, but yet it is true. It’s perfection in a lipstick. With spring here I am going to miss my berry colours and maroons but I am ready to move on and I think that 1st Base is the perfect shade to wear throughout spring and to be honest, all year round. I am so ready to get into the warmer months and say a massive eff off to the cloudy, wet weather!

Overall, Saturated Colour have not let me down and I am super impressed with this new shade of LipSStick so much so, I think it may have taken the top spot for my favourite. I can’t recommend 1st Base any more. It will be available to purchase TODAY from 12:00PM on their website, and why not add a couple of more LipSSticks into your basket whilst there for only £7?!
