becca week: khloe + malika (ultimate lipstick love)

Becca week is almost over. That doesn't mean the review stop coming, though! Last up as part of this theme week is the Khloe + Malika Ultimate Lipstick Love lipsticks. I have the shades Brave and Hot Tamale. The first is in collaboration with Malika Haqq and the second with Khloe Kardashian herself. In the Becca collection, there were two neutrals and two red shades to choose from. Since I am well stocked on neutral lipstick colours...this seemed like the perfect opportunity to add in some colour. 

Review: Khloe + Malika Ultimate Lipstick Love

In terms of packaging, these lipstick tubes are fairy simple and straightforward. Khloe's lipstick colour comes in silver and Malika's in gold. Nothing is written on the outside but on the top of each cap is the Becca logo. Though the simplicity is nice it is also a little bit...plain. However, one little aspect of the packaging that I really enjoy is that each tube clicks shut with a handy magnetic closure. Definitely a nice little detail. 

As you can see from the swatches above, there isn't a huge difference between the two shades. Khloe's shade, Hot Tamale, is a brighter and more vibrant red. It has almost an orange undertone and is really lovely. I absolutely love this colour because it is bright and fun. In my opinion, it is totally perfect for spring and summer if you want a statement lip. Then there is Brave, which is similar but doesn't have that same vibrancy. The shade is a little warmer and deeper. That makes it a more classic red and definitely would be well suited for a night on the town. 

The quality of these lipsticks is stellar. In terms of the formula, it is really creamy and comfortable on the lips. For me, this is so important. There is nothing worse than a lip product that is drying! These Becca lipsticks apply smoothly, have great pigmentation, and feel wonderful. The only thing to be aware of is the fact that these will need to be reapplied throughout the day. They wear evenly, which is great, but they will absolutely fade as the day goes on.

Overall, I am really loving these lipsticks! The colours are beautiful and the formula is fabulous. I absolutely love how creamy they are and how easy application is. I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for all of your comments during Becca Week here on the creation of beauty is art. Definitely let me know if there are any other theme weeks you would like me to do in future!

Have you tried these lipstick shades? What is your favourite red lipstick?
