Review: Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in Hot Plum

26 Mar

Hello everyone! A new lipstick line from Maybelline and when I went to the store to pick them up the display was really empty… but I managed to pick up one! I will be searching around for the others but please bear with me for this one.

Description: A purple based pink with a creamy finish.

Review: I actually was expecting this shade to be a bit more purple but it is still a really nice berry pink shade to wear. Compared to the other shades in the range Hot Plum isn’t extremely bright but is still a statement lipstick that is different from all the hot pinks and oranges available on the market now. The texture is extremely creamy and has very strong pigmentation. Since the pigmentation is really strong the lipstick sticks around for some time after it worn off. Average wear time for myself was 2-3 hours without drinking or eating and the stain lasted throughout the rest of the day. I detected no scent from this lipstick. Overall, a great lipstick and a fun different shade to wear.

Cost: $ 7-9CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Review: ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick

13 Jun

Hello everyone! A review from ELF (eyelipsface.com) and yeah… it was different than what I was expecting.

(L-R: Raspberry, Strawberry, Perfect Pink)

Review: The shades I got are Raspberry (darker mauvy purple based pink), Strawberry (a bright red shade), and Perfect Pink (a bright blue-based pink). This is very similar to a pigmented lipgloss which is alright but from the product title I would have expected it to be a lipstick. It works great as a gloss and is quite pigmented and the color is quite buildable. There is a slight mint scent to this but no plumping sort of feeling is felt on the lips. The color lasts for about 2-3 hours and the color can also work as a stain once the gloss has worn away. The packaging isn’t that great but still works you just have to twist it more than 10 times to get product out at the beginning. A con is the applicator I feel that the sponge actually absorbs the product than places it on your lips and well it’s only available online for Canadians. For Americans you can easily purchase it at a Target store… Canadians = online and online buying can be a hassle especially the wait times. I had to wait about 2 weeks before my package came in and that’s about avergae for any Canadian post parcel mail.

Cost: $1.00USD @ eyeslipsface.com
