Makeup Review: Savvy High Shine and Ultra Matte Lipglosses

Hi everyone. Today I have a different style of post which is a makeup review. I don't often post about makeup because 1. I'm not particularly proficient at makeup and 2. I have the same makeup every single day. However I thought it could be interesting to show a different dimension to my blog and also I found an amazing new product which I really wanted to share...that is the Savvy High Shine and Ultra Matte lipglosses. 

I found these at Priceline. I wasn't familiar with the brand but I believe it is an Australian brand. I was impressed by the colour range and the affordability of only $7.99. (I was able to purchase three or four lip glosses for the price I'd normally pay for one). For this product, some of the colours are a high shine version and others are a matte version. I like both so much that I now own four different shades. I often feel extremely frustrated when buying lipglosses and lipcolours. This is mainly because it is so difficult to find products that actually stay on the lips and are intense enough in their shade. I often find colour ranges generic and boring so the variety of Savvy colours immediately stood out.  Both the high shine and matte appear glossy when applied but soon after the matte version loses its wetness and sets. It stays on slightly better than the gloss version and is more smudge proof but both generally perform well in this area. I sometimes add clear gloss over the top of the matte version because I prefer the shiny look.  I like to be brave when it comes to lip colours. I hope I can build up the courage to try the bright orange version. I'm very pleased to discover this product and can't speak highly enough of it. For me, there are no negatives. (I apologise these photos aren't the best- Expect to see more of these lipglosses, incorporated into my outfits, on my blog. 

Main Benefits:
-affordability (only $7.99)
-colour range

It may not appear so from the photos but this is definitely the colour which is most out of my comfort zone. It's extremely unique and stands out so much once applied. I look really different in this colour. However I like that and it's the shade which made me go back to Priceline to purchase subsequent colours. It reminds me of Barbie pink. This colour comes in the high gloss version and is perfectly suits my existing girly look.

Rodeo Drive
This is more of a fluro shade than it appears in this photo and makes such a statement. It;s extremely bright and fun and I rarely see a makeup product in this hue. This is the colour I've been utilising the most lately and is quite possibly my favourite in the range. This colour comes in the matte version.

Fame and Glory
As a lover of the classic red lip, I'm very fussy when it comes to finding the right red lipgloss but this one meets my standards. Since it's a safe choice for me and has formed part of my everyday makeup routine for awhile now, it was definitely a must buy. It's a lighter shade of red (I note a deeper shade of red is available in this range and is called "Miss Monroe which I prefer. This colour comes in the high gloss version and is perfectly suits my existing look.  

This is a purple hue so I wasn't sure of exactly what to expect from the shade. However, I am very impressed and it makes a fun alternate to the generic reds and pinks that we so often see. I am surprised by the wearability of this colour; it comes out much more purple on the swatch but really fits in with the rest of my makeup once applied. It' reminds me of a mulberry pink/purple shade. This colour comes in the matte version.

Savvy High Shine and Ultra Matte lipglosses are available from Priceline here. There are several other shades. The next one I want to try is 'Bright Lights.'

Has anyone tried this product before?

I didnt know this brand but the shades you picked are very nice and inspire me a lot, especially both the matte ones :) Happy weekend Imogen! xo

Red Rose Alley said...

Cool lipstick. I have been wanting to get a gloss lipstick like this. I like the pink one best. I usually wear a rose color, but Nel has been lovin' the REDS lately. You have to have a certain skin tone to wear the reds, and she is able to wear them nicely.

Have a happy weekend, dear Imogen.

Speaking Prada said...

This lipstick colors looks so pretty! But unfortunately, I don't have that brand here in my country. However, I really enjoyed your review

Vita said...

I really like the middle two colours! I personally dislike lipglosses because they tend to be sticky and messy and I generally prefer the feeling of lipsticks... Are these sticky or are they OK, not glueing your lips together and making flyaway hair stick to it?
