Camille C.'s (camilleco) Beauty Product Reviews
I can at least say that I tried it without hurting my wallet.
The packaging is a little different from the Ultra Moist Lip Wear one. For one, it’s in a rectangular casing instead of a rounded one. The NYC label is also much more visible on this.
The colour also was a shade lighter than the 320 and considerably more brown. Not quite the colour I was looking for.
Surprisingly, the formula for this lipstick is even more moist than the Ultra Moist Lipstick. It’s super sheer when first applied, and is hardly buildable.
Here’s what it looks like with a few layers. It’s not horrible, but it’s not what I expected either.
The lipstick provides my lips with moisture and the lasts for, at most, an hour and a half before needing to be touched up again. I don’t think I’ll be buying this one again. But still, for only $2.29, I can at least say that I tried it without hurting my wallet.
if you don’t mind a non-matte lipstick that takes layers to get the colour right, then this is a steal.
I was originally trying to find a similar colour (Wine Not, to be exact) in Revlon’s Matte lipsticks, but when I got to the drugmart only to find it was sold out, I was just looking for a cheap alternative.
The first thing you notice about the lipstick is that it’s in a packaging that looks a bit similar to concealers. It’s cute. Nothing too fancy, and you’re able to see the colour on the bullet, as well as the name underneath the tube.
The colour looks quite dark when you see it in person, I was hestitating whether to buy this one or a shade lighter.
As expected of a moist lipsticks, the colour isn’t so pigmented when first applied. It’s really not as dark as it looks at all. But with a few more swipes, you can see the product is buildable and therefore the colour on the bullet is achievable.
Here you can see what it looks like applied with a few layers. With about 4 swipes, the product is still really light and does not appear to be ‘caked on’.
The lipstick provides my lips with moisture and the colour does last a few hours. So, with that being said: for the low price of $2.29, if you don’t mind a non-matte lipstick that takes layers to get the colour right, then this is a steal.
Definitely worth a try!
The first thing you notice when you look at the compact is it’s unusual container. I’m not a big fan of the way it was designed. The top is transparent like some other compacts but the bottom has little holes that let the sponge hiding inside peek through.
After you unlatch the top, you’re embraced by a beautiful translucent pressed powder with shimmers that glow when the sun or any bright light glistens on your face.
Underneath the pressed powder pot, is both the sponge they provide for application and their logo-filled mirror which reads, “Get ready.. Get set.. Glow!”
The sponge is thin and may look like a dollar-store sponge cut into a heart shape but let me tell you, ladies, this sponge really holds onto the product. Maybe it’s the velvety/suede texture, but either way, if you don’t have a large powder brush on you, then using the sponge works fine as well.
It’s not very noticeable at first, but you can definitely see the difference when I’m under the light.
At the low price of $6.88, I must say it’s definitely a try. I’m not sure if I would continue to use the product, but it’s definitely worth every dollar.
