10 Jan

Hello everyone! An indie brand post today which I’m really excited to share with you all and it’s on my new favorite lip products even though I just received them like a week ago.

Descriptions: (from L to R) Geek Chic Glosses in Banished (inky blue with shimmer), Health Potion (red with shimmer), Benevolent (bright pink with shimmer); Joysticks in Once Bitten (true red), Lipstick of the Shifting Sands (bright pink), My Little Pwny (frosty lavender),  Chrysalis (frosty mauve purple)

Review: Gloss – These glosses glide on smoothly with fantastic pigmentation and wear for about 2 hours time but I drink a lot of water so most glosses don’t last too long on me. I like that they are a click pen applicator as I can get all the gloss out of the tube and doesn’t the packaging look extremely cute? Banished was a bit hard to work with and I have to gloop it on if I want to get the really dark lip look that contrasts with my skintone. Health Potion and Benevolent have an awesome formula and they are gorgeous everyday shades.
Lipsticks – I love all the shades but wear Once Bitten and Lipstick of the Shifting Sands more often than the other two. I found it difficult to work with My Little Pwny and Chrysalis due to the amount of shimmers in the product itself. It wasn’t as smooth as Once Bitten and Lipstick of the Shifting Sands but they were a lot longer than the other two. I can get about 2-4 hours from Once Bitten and Lipstick of the Shifting Sands but from My Little Pwny and Chrysalis I got 4-6 hours which is awesome!

Cost: Geek Gloss – $4.99USD, Joysticks $5.99 available at geekchiccosmetics.com

Would I recommend these products? Yes, yes and yes! These are absolutely amazing and I love the way they feel on the lips and the color selection is amazing. I’ll definately be picking up more shades some time soon!

Review: L’Oreal Caresse Lipstick in 175 Violet Chiffon and 178 Cardinal Plume

24 Jun

Hello everyone! A fun lipstick review today and I apologize for not posting anything at all last week (there was no internet in the house).

Description: Violet Chiffon is a creamy berry purple, Cardinal Plume is a coral orange red with golden shimmers.

Review: Don’t the shades look gorgeous granted Violet Chiffon isn’t really summer-friendly Cardinal Plume is just gorgeous. I love the packaging of this they have the actual shade on the side which makes is easy to see which shade I will be picking up if stored on it’s side. It’s also a fantastic classy shade of gold that is just great and I don’t have any issues with the packaging no matter how many times I’ve dropped it. Onto the formulation of the lipsticks as that is the most important thing. These glide on very smoothly on the lips, do not settle into any liplines and don’t migrate around your face. As you can tell in the swatches they are pigmented and can be swiped across the lips more than once to have even more pigmentation to the shade. Cardinal Plume is a great everyday shade especially in the summer and Violet Chiffon is in a category of it’s own. It’s sort of vampy when swatched more than once on the lips but can look really spring like with just one swipe across the lips. A great all seasons shade just don’t let the purple trick you it looks very berry like on the lips (like you just ate some blueberries). Overall, I love the lipsticks in this range I’m just a little upset that they cost $10CDN each.

Cost: $10-13CDN @ local drugstores and marketplaces

Would I recommend this product? Yes, I am in love with these lipsticks I will definately be picking up more sometime in the near future (if I can’t resist).

Review: Covergirl Lip Perfection in 260 Heavenly

12 Aug

Hello everyone! Oh, pigmented lipstick with other properties?

Product Description: A lipstick that helps heal your lips and make them look perfect in 7 days with pigmented colors. 260 Heavenly is a fresh pink color. This is a cream shade.

Review: I really like this lipstick color and I think it suits my skin tone (yellow) very well. The lipstick was a lot more pigmented then I thought it would be so surprise there. Over the course of 7 days I didn’t notice anything different about my lips if anything they felt even drier than when I started using the lipstick. This lipstick doesn’t have a smooth glide across the lip and I don’t detect any scent from it. Wear time is about 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. Overall, it’s a very nice pigmented lipstick for those on a budget.

Cost: $9-13CDN @ drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this as it is a really good lipstick but would recommend putting balm underneath the lipstick so that your lips don’t feel so dry.
