Me Me Me Long Wear Satin Lip Creams in Berry Crush and Morello Silk. Review and swatches.

So looking back to my mini MeMeMe Haul, I promised reviews on the products I bought, I've already reviewed the Nail polishes Honourable and Relentless so I think it's about time I expressed my thoughts on the Long Wear Satin Lip Creams after putting them to the test.

Like I said in the haul post the reason I bought any of the items I did was down to a picture that popped up on Twitter, here I'm going to share the picture with you then you can see why I was so tempted.

Isn't that the most amazing image of a beautiful coloured lipstick? I thought so too. Anyways long story short I ended up purchasing and receiving it in the post with a number of other sale items.

The packaging of these lipsticks is so elegant and different, I love the boxes that they arrived in, I've actually kept these in the boxes they are that nice, they really bring some personality to the Me Me Me lipsticks. The tubes are black and beautiful too, very high end looking with some lovely swirling detail.

Since receiving the two lipsticks I purchased I haven't had much opportunity to wear them out of the house.. Yes I'm one of those people that buys lovely coloured lipsticks and has quite a growing collection, apply them and get to the front door then race back inside to find a make up wipe to remove them.
It's not because I don't like them in any way, I do, I really do but I just don't think I can pull them off so just wear them inside. My latest excuse is Winter is almost over so it's time for some nice light wearable shades for Spring.

Anyway ramblings aside I purchased Berry Crush and Morello Silk, I love these colours so much, Berry Crush is perhaps a smidgen lighter than in the picture from MeMeMecosmetics.co.uk, I think it's more pink in the tube than berry colour but still lovely. When applied it seems to turn more like the berry I initially thought it would be. It's such a lovely formula, really glides on and there is no pull at all, it's instantly opaque and glossy.
Berry Crush is comfortable to wear and felt barely there, it left a slight stain on the lips after a couple of hours but I tend to like this as it seems to last longer and even when its worn off it's like your still wearing something on your lips so if you forget to keep topping up as and when needed it's all ok.
When you see Berry Crush in the tube it looks as I said a brightish pink colour with lots of shimmer in. As you can see from swatches in natural light the shimmer didn't seem to show up but when the flash was on it did, very clearly, The shimmer didn't put me off though because it's not really noticeable when you see the colour on in person. I don't like to comment on wear time as I feel everybody will have different times and its all depending on eating, drinking etc etc but Berry Crush lasted about 4-5 hours and the after stain a further 1-2 hours. I was pleased with this lasting time. The only thing I would advise with Berry Crush is perhaps to use a lip pencil, it's quite a bold colour and although I didn't notice any 'bleeding' of the colour I think it would be safer to line first. Just incase.

         Iwent on to browse further through the website and came across Morello Silk, I loved the colour and iffed and ahhed for awhile but in the end decided to go for it.
We were still in the middle of Winter so it was colour appropriate. I wasn't completely sure what the overall colour was going to be like.. was it a dark berry colour or was it slightly brown? But upon receiving and using this it's most definitely a dark berry, super vampy, beautiful colour.

I am so in love with this, the first time I swatched this my first thought was that it was the same colour as a cherry, you know the dark ones and when you bite them they are very dark and reddish in colour? Well thats what I would compare this to. It glides on and it's so smooth I didn't feel it there. Morello Silk is extremely glossy and seems to have a slightly different formula to Berry Crush because it seemed to be slightly sheer, still very pigmented but not quite as creamy as Berry Crush.

Again it left a stain on the lips after it had worn away slightly, the stain was noticeable and quite a nice colour actually, there didn't seem to be any shimmer in Morello Silk and even with flash there was none that I noticed. Wear time was about 3-4 hours, I feel this didn't last quite as long as Berry Crush but that just seemed to be because of the sheerer formula. The stain left was darker though so wasn't quite as easy to notice it had worn away. I would certainly advise a lip pencil again as I found Morello Silk quite difficult to apply and once applied could almost immediately see it started to 'bleed' slightly, this isn't a problem once the lip liner is on though and it seems to sit nicely, I found Morello Silk seemed to accentuate any dry patches however so a lip scrub would be beneficial before use. Having said that I would usually do this before applying most lipsticks so this wasn't much of an issue to me.

Both of these colours have impressed me and I think they are so lovely to look at and wear, I'm over the moon that I decided to purchase them and that they were in the sale.

Both Berry Crush and Morello Silk are available Here for £8.50 but at the time of writing are down to £6.50 in the sale.

Will you be snapping these up or are you stocking up on Spring colours?

Lots of Love

    1. :) I think they both suit you and you certainly do pull them off, so you should definitely wear them out. I do that thing of getting to the front door and then wiping my lipstick off too haha I thought I was the only one :) I have an amazing pink from models own (the one in my picture) that I still haven't worn out lol. Do you only find this brand online? I don't think I've seen it anywhere xxx

    2. Lol your certainly not, we can be partners in house wearing lipstickers. :) the pink looks amazing, you pull it off so well. summer is going to be the perfect time for you to wear it out :) I heard that MeMeMe was sold in Superdrug however I think this may have changed now. I'm not sure but I'm yet to see it in a local Superdrug. xxxx

  4. Morello Silk looks like a great dupe for MAC Rebel which is next on my wishlist! Maybe I'll look into that for a cheaper alternative!
