CODE LIP & CODE SSL - my favourite lip combo right now!


Just when I thought I'd enough lip products to be carrying around with me in the bottom of my handbag (I counted 11 the last time I checked), Code Beautiful have only gone and launched these two beauts that I can't get enough of.  I've been wearing them loads since they gave them to me, both together and separately and I thought it was high time to do a blog post on 'em.  The Code SSL Soft Smooth Lip Liner and Code LIP Lip Intense Plumper have the absolute ability to make me look put together even if I've just slapped a bit of foundation, powder, brows and mascara on.  They're magic and if you want to see them in action, I've popped a little video at the bottom of the post!

The Code SSL Soft Smooth Lip Liner comes in one shade, a nudey blush that can look like a dusky pink on me in some light and in other light, it's more of a warmer caramel shade.  So basically I'm a ride no matter what light I'm in.  It's self sharpening (watch the video to see how), is super creamy on application but sets matte.  And while I can't over line my lips without looking ridiculous to save my life, I can with this and it gives me fuller looking lips and it still looks natural.  And despite its matte finish, it 100% doesn't dry out my lips which pleases me greatly.

The Code LIP Lip Intense Plumper is described as being a lip treatment rather than a gloss.  Ok, maybe it's the bold child in me, but I totally use it as a gloss because over the SSL liner, it is perfection.  I still use it on it's own during the day at work and it has a light pink tint to it that doesn't add much colour to my lips, but still feels comfortable.  I get to enjoy the slight minty tingle that lasts a couple of minutes before Hilurlip (which contains ingredients including hyaluronic acid) sets to work on providing some much needed moisture to the lips while also preventing sun damage.  Now truth be told, I don't notice much of a plumping effect on my lips on its own.  Maybe that's because I eat my lip products and I'm about 65% gloss every day, so they don't get a chance to work, but over the lip liner, it's fantastic and seeing the side by side shots in the video below, my lips really do look fuller and smoother.

The Code LIP Lip Intense Plumper is €29 and is available from the Code Beautiful website, from Meaghers Pharmacy and from Harvey Nichols.  The Code SSL Soft Smoothing Lip Liner is €26 and is available from the same places don'tcha know.

I'm sending out all the vibes to see if Sarah makes more liners in different shades, but it's not looking likely lads.  She's mad into hero products and I get it.  But I also want more of these ok bye.
