MDMFlow Lipstick Shake MilkShake Review
So you may or may not have heard of hip hop influenced lipstick brand MDMFlow. It was created by Florence Adepoju who is actually a graduate of the course I am currently studying at University (Cosmetic Science at London College Of Fashion), so needless to say she is quite inspirational to me! Also, the lipsticks are handmade by herself. The range consists of 9 pigmented shades, some of which are blue, gold and black. You can order her lipsticks from the MDMFlow website here, or do what I did- visit her pop up store in Shoreditch any time before Sunday the 23rd (I believe).
MDMflow, shade Milkshake, £18: So I went to the pop up store with my friend as I really wanted to have a proper look at the range, and swatch them. Also, contrary to what you might think seeing as I am a beauty blogger, I am not a hoarder and I would not like to buy a shade I already have. This light pink shade caught my eye, and it happened to be the one Florence was wearing in the store that day as well- I thought it was really nice! I chose it because it looks super pigmented but it is also very creamy and glossy- which I am sure you can see in the picture.
What's kind of different is that as you can see, the lipstick looks very light, baby pink before swatching it, but then when you actually swatch or wear it, it is more pink/purpleish. As I was in the store, I saw that and I liked the shade it turns into. But it is worth mentioning if you are ordering it on the website, thinking it will be really light. Also, it is pretty pricy at £18 and I am actually not a big spender, I own one Mac lipstick which was £12, and it took me like a week to decide to buy it (haha, yes I'm serious), the rest are a couple of cheap lipsticks. But I could tell this lipstick was of good quality, I LOVE the packaging and name, and of course- I am all for supporting independent businesses as opposed to mass produced ones. The staying power is decent, and pretty much what you'd except from a creamy lipstick, after 3-4 hours it still looks nice, the pigment is there but it's worn off if you look close.
