Mouthy By Megan 'Shoutout & Spice' Lip Kit - Review

Hello beauties!
When Megan McKenna joined my secret pleasure (The Only Way Is Essex) last year I instantly loved the whole fashion 'vibe' she had. I've bought a few of her clothing items from Miss Pap and have always felt the top quality of them, so in November when she announced she was starting a lip kit range I knew I had to give them a go!
In the 'Mouthy By Megan' collection there are a range of unique lip shades, the shade I chose was 'Shoutout & Spice' which can only be described as a rum brown colour. For one lip kit it was £29.95, which I think was a reasonable price for the product.

Shoutout & Spice arrived in a simple white cardboard box which had the brands name printed on.. and that was it. Now I know you should never judge a book by its cover and all that jazz. However, in this day and age when cosmetic brands have so much competition I just felt as though Megan could have put her own stamp on the packaging.

Despite being slightly deflated by the packaging, I kept an open mind and continued to peep inside and find my lip kit, hoping to find something more. Unfortunately that was not the case, inside was a matching lipstick pen and lip liner which actually could have belonged to any brand. 
The lip kit was a subdued deep purple colour, and that's it. Unfortunately on my photos I couldn't get the distinct colour and it's looking a little more lilac than it actually was. Without sounding harsh this product lacks any detail, uniqueness and love, if I was shopping by eye and not ordering online I don't think I'd have picked it up to purchase. 
My moto in life is to never judge on looks, so I remained optimistic whilst testing it out for the first time. To begin with I lined my lips with the pencil, although it didn't run smoothly over them I feel this is my doing as I hadn't used a lip scrub or primer before hand. Although the feeling wasn't soft and gentle, I still find it worked and it got into the corners which I often find an issue. 

The lipstick (which matched the liner perfectly) was a texture I hadn't worked with before; I found it a little difficult to apply as I had no idea what was meant to be done. At first it was really thick and quite blobby so I was planning on wiping it off, it was only then I got the hang of how it worked. After application you need to blot your lips on a tissue (as you should with all lip products), however with the Mouthy By Megan you need to add more pressure as though you're taking the colour off. 
Once you've neaten the lipstick up it's then when you see the true allure of the shade, it appears more natural and slick once blotted. Parallel to every liquid lipstick, this is instant drying meaning you have to be quick with fixing as once it's on there's no going back. One tip I found from the last time I used it and also I spotted today on Megan's Instastory is to apply a clear gloss afterwards, the lipstick is quite dry but simply adding a little gloss can take a 7.5 to a 10!

I've worn Shoutout & Spice a few times now, both day and night and I feel it's an every occasion lipstick. It can go from casual daytime to glamorous night. Each time I've worn it I've had something to eat and drink and find the lipstick withstands perfectly throughout; after a drink especially it's no different from first being applied! It's only after four hours do you become aware of it slightly starting to fade however not so much you can't see a glimmer still in place. 

Even though this review has both negatives and positives, I'd love to test out other Mouthy By Megan products. I've got my eye on Tuff Love & Glacier Pink, which I'm hoping the Easter Bunny might bring me (wink wink)!

Have you tried a Mouthy By Megan product? Would you?

  7. The only 'lip kits' I have used are the Kylie ones, so it's nice to see a lesser known brand doing well!

  8. It's. a shame to see the lack of love in the product packaging. I worry that sometimes they just push these products out with little thought but I'm glad you have found that it works well
