I bought this palette a long time ago because there were no reviews of it here as well as testers at my local drugstore. The only thing I knew about this product was that this palette was highly praised on YouTube.
It was just a lyrical digression and now let’s move to the subject of my review. So the first thing I was attracted by in this palette was the design. It’s a stylish-looking golden black compact that is ergonomic and lies well in hand.
The entire inside of the top cap is taken by a big mirror. The palette opens 180 degrees which I count as an advantage. At the same time you can fix the mirror at any angle you need. As for the disadvantage I’ll count the glossy top to be one, which is a massive fingerprints collector.
The palette is very travel-friendly. I wish I bought it before my holiday. In that case I’d have taken only this palette and nothing more for my lips.
The fragrance. It’s typical for a lip product but sometimes I can feel some powder notes there too.
Country of origin. Made in Italy
Weight. 6 shades 1g each. Not much.
Expiration date. 3 years. Oh, I’ll easily finish it up before the expiration date.
Brush. Well, the included brush is already a plus. And a good quality included brush is a huge plus. The brush is synthetic, well shaped and it gives a good and precise application. It isn’t rough yet not soft. It’s perfect. It doesn't take up too much product. The only thing I can be picky about is its size. For me it's a little bit inconvenient that the brush is too short. But I forgive it.
Quality. I can assure you that all the lippies are soft and creamy. They aren’t too thick or runny. All the shades are delicately satin and pleasantly felt on the lips. The finish is a tad dewy. None of them travel down or crease during the day. Even when the shades already disappear, the pigment will still stay on your lips. In general when I wear these products on my lips they always look natural and nude.
If I was to assess the staying power of these products I’d give them 4 stars out of 5. The product stays on my lips for hours.
All the shades:
Sorry for these photos, I can’t take them better. In life all the products look even better than in the shots.
But after taking them, I got the point that I won’t choose #4 and #6 for everyday wear.
Price. $17 but you can easily find it discounted.
After a few months of using these lippies I found out that not all the shades stay on well. Shades #2 and #3 dry out my lips a lot!
Overall. I want to say that the palette is excellent. It’s a perfect present for any occasion for your mom/friend/sister or colleague. The colors are versatile and will flatter any skin tone. The Red palette will be great for those who want to discover red shades but are too afraid to try. Don’t be. You will definitely find yours, at least two colors from the palette will suit each and everyone. For a mass market product, this palette is just awesome!
Love and be loved!
