provocalips review


You know something that I’ve always had issues with?

Lip colour.

I was always scared of it looking too bold. Or that I don’t look old enough to wear it.

I end up feeling like a 7 year old wearing me’ Mums lippy and pretending to be an adult.

I’m 28.

One of the biggest things that makes me not want to wear lipstick is that is smudges. I end up with it all over my face, on the rims of cups and on my hands.

So I always avoided it unless I was going out. Or doing outfit photos (we’ve all done it 😉 ).

I managed to get my hands on some testers of Provocalips for £1 each! They were unused and had a sticker on the side that said ‘tester’. I just peeled it off and you can’t even tell.

provocalips reviewProvocalips says it lasts 16 hours. I’ve not seen them a lot of blogs so I had no idea if this claim was true.

One day, when I was dicking about at home and not up to much, I decided to put one on and see what happened.

I applied it at about 11am and then went about my usual business.

I drank multiple cups of coffee, I worked out and had a shower. When I got out of the shower, which was about 8pm, I realised that the colour was still on my lips.


It hadn’t transferred onto any cups, my hands or smudged at all. It was completely dry and looked exactly the same as when I first put it on.

I’ve been wearing it every day since that day. I’m converted. 100%

Provocalips is double ended, one end with the colour and the other end with a clear gloss. As I prefer matte lips, I skipped the ‘lock and shine’ clear gloss and the colour still was locked in enough without it.

It’s hard to get off though – I’ve found the only way I can remove it is with waterproof eye makeup remover, and I still have to scrub quite a bit!

Here are the shades I got:

Provocalips: Kiss me you fool.

This is a bright red. It looks really bright when you first apply it – verging on coral/orange, but then dulls down. I still find this is a bit too much for daily use, but hello New Years Eve 😉

Provocalips: Skinny Dipping

This is a nude shade, which I’m not really a fan of as I think it makes me look washed out, but I would use it as a base if I wanted to wear some shimmer/glitter on my lips.

Provocalips: Make Your Move

This is the star of the show. I love this colour so much. It looks quite brown from the colour of the tube, but I find it’s a bit redder/pinker when applied on the lips.

This is the one I’ve been wearing every day.

I’m now 100% converted and I’m going to repurchase this before it runs out.

Have you ever tried Provocalips before? What did you think?



  1. i can’t believe how long those lipsticks stay. Such a great bargain you got those for! I face the same problem with lipstick, I always find something I wanna eat then it all smudges. I’ve really been loving my lip crayons though. You look stunning with the kiss me you fool shade! 🙂 x


  2. I’ve seen this lip product pop up a few times on blogs saying how long lasting the colour is. I do think the packaging is slightly tacky, but I guess the product itself is what matters 🙂 The last shade suits you so well!


  3. I like the first and the last ones on you, the middle one did make you look washed out!! But, i like the top one the best, so bold and bright!! Never used these before, they sound great too 🙂 Will have to look out for them 🙂 Happy weekend xx

  4. 16 Hours wow I need this type of lipstick, I do not have time in the office to reapply this will work for me and love that it does not transfer to cups or glass. The first shade looks stunning on you.

  5. I’ve not heard of this range before but the staying power sounds SO impressive! I love the red shade x

  6. wow! that’s seriously impressive if it lasted you all day and through a shower! i’ve not tried them yet and i don’t tend to love lip products with a gloss/balm at the other end of them but given all the rave reviews of these i might have to pick up the red shade.

    jessica –

  7. You appear to have found some bargains! 1 pound well spent in my opinion. It’s great to have products like this that are long lasting. I love all the different shades you got which can make a variety of looks.


  8. These sound amazing! I can’t believe you got them for £1 each- such a bargain! My favourite shade is Kiss Me You Fool. I think it is such a lovely red x

  9. The lasting power of these sound quite impressive. One thing I don’t like about lip color is having to re-apply it so I’ll have to look into this range.

  10. ah, i’ve heard so many good things about these and still haven’t gone to get myself one! i really want to, though. i think all of the colours look lovely on you:-) i’m very much into wearing lipstick every day and these sound so perfect with lasting so long and not staining! xx

  11. Oh wow look at that red. Stunning! I have an avon colour quite close to that, also quite matte, and I must admit that I’m in love with that shade.

  12. Oh, what a great review and you lucky girl for getting your hands on them for only $1! What a great bargain. I really like the look of Kiss Me You Fool, I need to check if it’s launched here.

  13. I have the same problem with lipsticks, I buy these bold colours and then I`m too afraid to wear them. I remember I wanted to get these and then I saw Lily Pebbles complaining about how hard they are to remove and that put me off. But the shades are fantastic and I actually think Kiss me You Fool looks great on you! If I buy them, that`s the colour I want most.

  14. No I’ve not tried it, but I think I may have to if it really does last that long – most impressive.

    I got the red shade after our holiday because I was so jealous of Hayley haha.
    They honestly don't come off do they? I think I had to really give mine a good scrubbing and it was still clinging on. It's even better for you that you got them for a £1 too!

  16. I like the colour, it suits you 🙂
    I’ve always been too afraid to yolo on the lipstick too.
    I will never forget the first time I met up with this guy I was crazy about. I had *really*, really thought that that lipstick matched my outfit…


    Looking back – It really didn’t.

  17. I generally don’t like bright lipsticks because they smudge but also because they are sticky. But these look pretty and the fact that the colour lasts is a bonus Lucy x

  18. I’ve not tried these before, but I do love a matt lip stick. I think the red is a gorgeous colour on you!

    I’d definitely try something like this but I’d have to find a different brand 🙂

  19. Oh these sound amazing, I am so glad you posted about them.

    I have exactly the same issues with lip colour and always carry one in my bag but rarely use it and if I do if never bothered to reapply when it’s rubbed off (usually within about 5 mins!)

    Definitely going to obtain at least one of these this weekend!

  21. This is the first time that I hear about this brand. The colours look great on you and it’s good to know that you are happy with these lipsticks.

  22. I haven’t actually tried any of these before! I think it’s time to grab me some Provacalips 😀

    I love Kiss me you fool on you the most, it’s so vibrant & beautiful on you!!!

  23. This sounds like exactly what I need. I am a champion at transferring lipstick to places it shouldn’t be – eyebrows, chin, hair, I don’t know how I manage it. I’ve had bad luck with some Rimmel lipsticks before, but will keep an eye out for these.

  24. Looks like you got a great deal there! Kiss me you fool looks brilliant on you I think I might have to pick up one of those for myself!x

  25. I don’t wear lipstick often for the same reason, that it smudges and that you constantly need to touch-up! Thanks for the review of these, very interesting 🙂

  26. I think you should go for a bold lip more often cause they work for you, specially that gorgeous red! I actually just picked up some Rimmel matte velvet lip thingies, and I hope they have the staying power of yours


  27. WOAH! it sounds like a magical product. I think I saw them in mall yesterday. I need a bit of it in my life.

  28. When I saw your comment on my video about Provocalips I knew I had to come over here and find your post. Kiss Me You Fool is the best! and I am surprised about Make Your Move, as it certainly looks really brown in the container. As I’m sure you know I love this product and it most definitely lasts for a long time. I am wearing Kiss Me You Fool right now and it is part of my everyday makeup. I don’t think it’s too bold for me everyday but I wonder if that’s because I am so used to wearing red lips. Whenever I use red it doesn’t look as bright on me as it does on other people, I often wonder if red has become my nude. Anyway, I really enjoyed reading your thoughts on this product and I think all the shades look amazing on you.

    1. Year, the make your move does look browner. I think all the colours look slightly different to the packaging to be honest!

  29. I’ve been wanting to try these, but haven’t really been wowed by any of the shades I’ve spotted in store… The red looks great on you, I think you should be brave and wear it more! 🙂
