Miss Sporty is definitely one of those brands that doesn't get enough hype in the beauty industry. I've been guilty myself of overlooking their stand, sometimes due to the odd placements in my local Superdrug. I think that sometimes there's an idea that if a brand is too affordable, it can't be that good, and that if the packaging is a little too funky then it's only tailored to a younger crowd. Well today I decided it was time to destroy this cycle and give some deserved attention to a company that is truly making a comeback by featuring their new bomb Wonder Collection*.
What to expect: a variety of shades that are wearable - 14 to be exact. Don't get scared of the bullet, the majority of these lipsticks are creamy, pigmented but not too thick and 'in your face' as they're not bright. They're ideal for people who like day to day shades.
The Formula: It's moisturising and helps your lips feel comfortable. The ingredients include jojoba oil and silk powder, making them perfect for the upcoming colder season when we all suffer from a chapped lip at one point or another. They guarantee long lasting shine and wear up to six hours (although in my experience it was about 4 as I like to eat a lot..)
I have noticed that they do leave a stain behind though that is easy to fix and fill-in when you're done eating.
The Price: £2.59 each
HOT or NOT?
I think this collection is definitely HOT as the lipsticks are creamsheen finishes (if you think about mac) which can be worn lightly with one layer or combined with lip liners to really make the colours pop. There's at least one shade for everyone and thanks to the purse-friendly price, we can all test them without breaking the bank.
The Super Naturals
Shades L-R: 100 Barely Amazing, 101 Nude Power, 102 Power Rose
The Ready-for-Anything Reds
300 Incredible Red, 301 Cherry Cape, 302 Powerful Berry
200 Incredible Pink, 201 Fantastic Blush, 202 Ultra Pink 203 Wonder Fuchsia
500 Heroic Copper, 600 Coral Power
400 Super Mauve, 401 Wonder Plum
I actually own a few of their nail polishes and I enjoy the formula and the shades a lot. For £1.99 I found these to be shiny, easily applied and the colours to be rather unusual. They're going to be perfect for the NYE/ Christmas season (yes, I used the C word and no one can stop me now).
Top to Bottom: Ultra Silver, Super Purple, Incredible Gold, Wonder Copper
I'd love to know what you think about Miss Sporty and if you tried any of their products.
