Take me again to the ’90s, please
I’ve tried a couple of of their gadgets, together with a lipgloss, liquid lipstick and a lip pencil, and I’m impressed! IMO the make-up is on par with MAC.
- Liquid Matte Lipstick in Horny: This O.G. ’90s-style flat matte brown takes me again to my school days! It’s heat with a slight trace of purple (however the purple isn’t as current as MAC Paramount or Revlon Rum Raisin). The feel’s a light-as-air mousse, so you possibly can lead it to the corners of your Cupid’s bow precisely the place you need it to go… Smells just a little like cocoa butter at first, and I type of need to eat it, LOL! (Don’t try this, although.) Very faint sugar cookie taste. A little bit goes a great distance, and the product utterly coats my lips with out settling into horizontal lip strains.
- Hydra Gloss in Shiraz: This semi-sheer pearly mauve-pink looks like one of many revamped MAC Lipglasses. It’s thick, so it’s THERE and you recognize it. It’s not sticky, although, and it’s fairly moisturizing too. I get a faint sugar cookie taste, nevertheless it’s not all up in your grill. In the event you’re like me and nude, shiny and lips are your factor, Shiraz is a colour you’ll attain for on a regular basis.
- Lip Pencil in Rush: A high-pigment matte rosy pink that glides throughout lips with out tugging. Comprises shea butter for moisture!
