Review and Swatch–MeMeMe Elektra Lip Cream

A few weeks ago I read about MeMeMe’s Elektra Long Wear Satin Lip Cream and realised  vibrant pink lipstick colour I’ve been dreaming of.

 

I rushed out instantly and bought it for £8.50 from Superdrug  and here it is!

 

Packaging

The lipstick comes in a box which is matt black and has a lovely description of the goddess it’s named after

The tube is sleek matt black also, although the colour label doesn’t look like the colour you get which is odd. Not that I’m bothered, just an observation.

The product

 

In the tube, you get a normal bullet of lipstick so it’s easy to apply from the tube

The product is very creamy as to be expected from the name “lip cream” and very moisturising. I have incredibly dry lips but this went on like a dream and lasted really well. The colour is really vibrant and lasts well, and slightly stains your lips. It doesn’t last past a meal but no lipsticks I own do!

The swatch shows Elektra on the right compared to MAC Girl About Town on the left – as you can see it’s brighter and more luminous

Rating – I’d give this an 8/10. I really love the colour and the moisturising consistency, but the price is steep for a MeMeMe product and the range of colours isn’t brilliant. However the colour I have I love and I’d like to try a couple of others.
