I’ve seen so many advertisements recently on this that I thought it was a relatively new product, but it’s been out for over 9 months now. At my local drug store down the road (literally 2 minutes away driving), the display was ransacked and had very little left and that majority of them had been tampered with. Let’s just say that I’m pretty sure you and I can agree we don’t want to take a chance on one that looks like it’s been opened. So out of the 16 shades, I was able to grab these two: 655 Kisses (top) and 600 Devotion (bottom).
They are both very similar in color / shade, and it was such a shame that I didn’t get to grab Infatuation. I’ve always wanted to dip my toes into deeper colors.
As you can see, the colors are a little patchy and you will need to do a second layer to cover any uneven coloring. However, it is less noticeable with Devotion.
I’ve searched around after I tried out this product to figure out how other people described the weird scent this product gave off. Many said fruity, which I agree it has this sweet scent to it, but it smelt…chemically-like. It was just off-putting and not at all pleasant to sniff at but once applied, you can’t tell it’s there. If you have a sensitive sense of smell, you might notice it.
Claims: Lightweight, high definition velvety matte color. Moisturizing, velvety feel. 100% wax-free, gel formula. Available in 16 high definition shades.
It says it is a matte lip product, but I found that it doesn’t apply or dry down to a matte. It does however seem to stain your lips, so you don’t need to fuss after eating. Even after removing makeup, it leaves behind a light stain.
Overall rating: Miss. It isn’t a true matte lip color, and I feel it’s more of a lip stain long term. It wasn’t hydrating to me, but I do like the color selection available. I do feel there are better products out there that are drugstore with better payoff.
Have any of you tried this product? Did you guys have similar results / feelings?
