My Confidence Colour – Roar Red

My Confidence Colour – Roar Red

I remember the first time I ever wore red lipstick. It was MAC’s Ruby Woo and I felt nervous, exposed and like everyone at university – and I mean everyone – was staring at me. It lasted a couple of hours before I had managed to convince myself that I didn’t suit it and people were laughing at me for even trying it out. Silly, but true.

Back then I had very low self esteem and suffered with crippling anxiety over the way I looked. For years I hid behind the excuse of “I don’t suit it” as to why I didn’t try anything new and always stuck to quite a neutral make-up palette. Fast-forward to now and there’s nothing I won’t try where make-up is concerned, and more importantly, a bright, bold lip has become my staple shade.

Red has become my confidence colour. I can’t quite explain the feeling, but I just feel so damn empowered when I wear it. As soon as I apply it, I’m like “BOOM I’m ready!” I’m not sure exactly when I switched from hiding behind my ‘safety net nude’ to embracing some colour, but I wish it happened years ago. I think it’s down to me getting older and I’m caring less about what people think and just focusing on me.

The latest addition to my ever-growing collection is the NU Colour Powerlips Fluid in the shade Roar, and it’s quickly become my favourite red lippy.

Firstly, there’s no chemical smell, which I find more in liquid lipsticks compared to glosses, or lipsticks. Instead it has a subtle vanilla scent, which I enjoy, and has a doe-foot applicator, which allows for a precise and easy application.

Since I’m so fair, I have to make sure I get the correct shade of red to complement my skin tone, and I just LOVE how intense this red colour is. It’s very much a vibrant red that’s bright and bold, but still quite classic. The product itself boasts a weightless formula that’s creamy in consistency and drys very quickly, resulting in a gorgeous matte finish.

A little of this product goes a long way – I literally apply a single application on a morning and it lasts all day, until the evening. Seriously, I was so impressed with how high performing this liquid lipstick was, and I still am. It literally lasts all day. Even when I’m eating it doesn’t smudge, or leave any imprints on my chin, and afterwards because it’s stayed in place I don’t even have to top it up.

You know sometimes when you wear a bold, bright colour on your lips you find yourself constantly checking to see if it’s stayed in place, because no one wants it on their teeth or smudges around their mouth, right? Since trying this liquid lipstick the matte formula hasn’t failed me yet and I can honestly trust it to stay in place all day without me checking up on it.

Finding a high end, or drug store liquid lipstick that doesn’t dry out your lips, I think, is quite rare, but this formula doesn’t disappoint. Even after days of constant wear, my lips feel soft and I think that’s down to the avocado oil and vitamin E ingredients.

NU Colour Powerlips Fluid

Overall, I would totally recommend the NU Colour Powerlips Fluid to all the liquid lipstick lovers and novices out there. The intense colour and high performing and, not to mention, the long lasting formula, really impressed me. So much so, that I’m looking to add some more colours to my collection.
