What this another Lipstick review/discussion? Yes. Yes it is. Today I wanted to talk about Freedom Pro melts. Dont they look posh? Only £3. Bargin or what? Again this was a bit of an impluse buy while shopping around superdrug. Superdrug, has a good knack of putting things in the right place for impluse purchases, Well done super drug. As you can guess it was the price point that pulled me into this one. For three pounds you can’t really go wrong.
So first thing with these, I adore the outer packaging. Simple and professional looking. Im not a fan of the actually lipstick container. I think the white cap, though stands apart from other brands, looks a tad too plain.
The price point on these are its biggest draw, £3 for a tube of 7.5ml which calculates to £2 per 10ml. Which is darn cheap. Can it really go wrong for that price?
As you can see I picked two colours out. The blue is called ‘Just do it’ and the Purple is ‘Wanted’.
The Applicators are standard angled doe foots, so application is easy, though I struggled to get it near the edge of lips without it noticably bleeding. Results would probably be better with a lip liner. There is no smell from either so that is a bonus.
Wanted (the purple one) goes on quite well. It gives fairly decent coverage if you apply it generaouly. Not excessively but more dont be stingy with the product. It is definitly more of gloss than a lipstick so there is a nice shine to it. The forumla still seemed a little streaky on it own, so I would recomend using something under it to give a better colour finish. I felt the product moved around a little more than I like once it has been applied and I’d often get little bits on my teeth and around my piercing. So it does need to be touched up through out the day.
‘Just do it’ (the blue one), was just wrong. The colour payout was dissapointing to say the least. A thin layer over another lipstick is the way to go with this one. It comes out really sheer. Even trying to build it up it is just streaky and patchy. This cannot be worn on its own at all. Which made me really sad because I this as a solid colour would have been awesome. Like the purple this moves on the lips after application a little too much for my comfort and with harsh colours like this you do have to be carefull because smudges look so much more noticable.
The lovegevity of both lipsticks is neglible for me. As Ive said before, I smoke and drink (coffee) all day so transfer is the bane of my lipsticks and this just melts away before I’ve even finished a cup. If you looking for something for a photoshoot or something quick then these are great otherwise there are better options out there, even in the more outragous colours.
Would I buy them again? Probably not. Im not a massive fan of lip glosses to start with, for me these appealed to be because of the bright colours and I enjoy trying new lipsticks. Do you agree with me, or do think these are the bees knees?
