Bell Cosmetics is a Polish company which produces Hypo-allergenic make-up exclusively sold on BeautyCrowd. On my recent lipstick binge, I purchased a few products from the same line, picking up 5 lipstick shades varying from nudes to red. The Bell Cosmetic Creamy Lipstick's claims to be smoothing, moisturising and have intensive colour.
The lipstick comes in a pink cardboard box with the ingredients printed onto the box, the lipstick case is silver with an embellished logo with a slanted lid which I found difficult to store since, the shade names would be on the bottom if stored upright, the cap is very secure therefore it won't be rolling around in your bag. One of the problems are the lack of shade names which makes it difficult to differentiate when they stored.
PRODUCT AND APPLICATION
The 5 shades that I have purchased are all satin finish and does not contain shimmer, they are easy to apply as the colour glides on in one stroke. You can easily get a precise application until the bullet wear down that is, It is also very comfortable to wear throughout the day and easy to reapply, without being patchy.
There are a wide range of shades to choose from (17 colours) however like always buying online is always difficult to pick shades since they look very similar on the webpage. Starting with the lowest number 01 - I would describe this as a peach pink, it is a very girl colour and has a cool undertone, number 02 - looks like a nude, but it is more of a coral when applied onto the lips, which would look lovely as a summer shade, 07 is your classic true red, 08 - is a deep raspberry red and 25 is a muted plum shade, which is one of my favourites.
These are very affordable, with a price tag of £4.95.
I really like this collection of lipsticks, I grow to like them more and more. The colours are unbelievably pigmented including the lighter shades, they also provides a stain on the lips when removed especially the darker tones. The lighter shades 01 and 02 does define my fine lines a little, but I have a lot of fine lines naturally, if you wear a lip primer they should be alright and they do not bother me - I feel very girly in this shade (01).
The colour stays on throughout the day, I've worn this up to 4/5 hours before I removed it myself, I believe it can last longer, but I had to remove it before food as it does transfer. The creamy formula makes easy to reapply and does not become patchy. The lipstick also has no scent, which I think some people will approve of and is hypo-allergenic.
I compared the bell lipstick with the Clinique Pop Lip and Primer, the texture and the formula are quite similar both having a creamy texture and are both satin finishes. In my Instagram picture above, I wore Clinque Red Pop on my bottom lip and Bell Cosmetic Creamy Lipstick in 07. They are exactly the same shade. Will I say it's a dupe! Yes! I am so impressed!! These are really affordable and has a wide range of colours to choose from. Yes the Clinque Lip Pop's are more attractive in terms of packaging, but the formula I can not fault this!
