Accessorize lipsticks in shades Besotted and Head Over Heels

Hi everyone. 
When I heard about the new Accessorize makeup range I was very excited, but unfortunately my local Superdrug stores and even the bigger ones in Glasgow don't stock most of the products. The only thing I managed to find was a baked blusher, that I reviewed here. The prices are very affordable and I wish I could find the eyeshadow palettes somewhere :(
I received two Accessorize lipsticks recently and I am in love with the unique packaging. It is totally different than anything I have seen before.  I received shades 3- Besotted* and 4-Head Over Heels*. They are both very pigmented and the colours are gorgeous, but if I don't apply a lip balm first they are more on the dry side. The finish they give when applied on their own is matte, but I used a lip balm first to make them work for me. On the first picture you can see me wearing Besotted with a little bit of a Clinique lip gloss on top of it and I think it looks really nice this way. The colour stays on for over 5 hours! I don't think I've ever had a lipstick on for such a long time without reapplying.
Although I am not impressed with the formula on its own, I really enjoy wearing the lipsticks on top of a lip balm or topped up with some lip gloss. They cost £4.99 and you can get them in selected Superdrug stores. Have you tried Accessorize make up? What are your thoughts?

  1. Another company that has seen sense and put colour labels on top of their lipsticks!

  2. I have Besotted, I think it is lovely!

    I agree you sure do need lip balm on before you apply these, I find that if I have the slightest chap on my lip they will cake up.

    Other than that though, lovely shades :)

  8. These are so gorgeous i'd wear both of these shades! I actually seen a stand in superdrug (im more of a Boots girl so i never be in there) and seen the Accesorize stand and had a peak at a few eye shadow pallettes, they have a lovely range! Was so surprised i'd never heard they did makeup! Lovely post anyway, i'll be stopping in superdrug again to see if they have the pink! x

  9. awwws, i love the shade in 'besotted' it is the perfect kind of pink that i tend to go for. Its great that the lipsticks stays put for a longer time than many other lipsticks out there where i have to keep on reapplying! The packaging is adorable and unique and i love the way that you can see the colour on the end~ Thanks for sharing and i am sure that i will be picking up besotted sooner or later :D xoxo

  11. My thoughts were much the same as yours - great colours and great packaging, but such a waxy, dry formula. I hadn't figured out how to get the best wear out of them, so I'm glad you mentioned lip balm, can't believe I didn't think of that!

  13. That staying time is amazing. Im pretty poor for lipstick staying, I overly lick/chec my lips so it never lasts long which is sad!

  14. I know this has nothing to do with your post, but your eyeliner is PERFECTION, what ever do you use?!
    The packaging on the Accessorize lipsticks is so cute, I'm a sucker for owls! I really wish we could get our hands on this brand over in the U.S.
