OPI Lovely Lips & Tips Review - Big Apple Red!

Hello lovelies,

I'm still walking around Europe, but here's another post I set to publish while I was away.

Do you ever match your lip colour to your nail polish? I do from time to time, purely because it's a fun thing to do! If you've ever wanted to try it but found yourself a little overwhelmed, never fear, for OPI have done the legwork for you, with the Lovely Lips & Tips pack!

The Lovely Lips & Tips pack in Big Apple Red was actually a Christmas gift from OPI, and it came with a pack of dark chocolate covered brazil nuts. Truth be told, I'm not sure which I was more excited about, I love dark chocolate almost as much as I love nail polish!

The lipgloss in the set is really pretty, as it has three different layers (see photo below). I'm not sure if the layers will eventually start to mix after the gloss has been used for a while, but the effect is staying put for now. It comes with a little brush applicator, which makes for easy application on-the-go. 

Keep reading after the jump!

Big Apple Red is a gorgeous, classic red that applies, as most OPI shades do, like a dream. I've used two thin layers for the photos below, topped off with topcoat.

The lipgloss is a little sticky, which probably makes it a poor choice to wear on a windy day if you dislike getting your hair stuck to your lips. The gloss is quite sheer, but does have a pretty tint to it. I like wearing this shade over a matching lipstick, but you can also choose to wear it over bare lips, or over a matching lipliner.

I believe these packs were limited edition and came in several shade options, retailing at $24.95. You might still be able to hunt one down at standard stockists like David Jones, Myer and selected salons (or otherwise, just do a quick internet search)!

Do you often coordinate your lips and nails, lovelies? Do you like the look of the Lips & Tips Pack in Big Apple Red?

Much love,
