Once they launched this new product, it seemed as though the whole world has become obsessed with it. And finally this product came to the local stores!
Recently I decided to visit their store and buy at least one lippie for me. I already knew the color that I wanted (SQUAD GOALS by the way) and I even saved some money for it. But actually, when I went into the store, I have found out that all the lipsticks from the new collection were sold out (within three days, by the way) and there was only one left, which was in the color #02. I was really afraid that it would look too bright over my lips, but the sales girls helped me. They tried to swatch a similar product, but still I hesitated for some time. In general the product might also look too fair on my lips and I don’t like such colors, because I prefer more deeply toned lipsticks.
But the interest and desire of the new product were much stronger and I eventually bought this lippie.
Once I left the store, I quickly opened the package to test this lipstick on my lips right away. I was with my bestie, who isn’t much into cosmetics, you know. But even she was interested in my lipstick as well. She was too curious to know the reason why I have spent so much time in the corner.
Naturally, the most interesting was to get the product to come out of the tube. I watched a lot of YouTube video reviews of this lipstick and was very interested to finally see that applicator myself.
This is what they say on the official website:
Pucker up and powder your pout! Featuring a pillowy cushion-applicator, our new Powder Puff Lippie Powder Lip Cream goes on mousse-y and sets to a powdery soft finish. Achieve a flush of color in eight vibrant shades—from warm peach to true red, and hot pink to cool plum—for an irresistible, just-kissed look.
When I applied the product for the first time, it was really a very interesting experience for me. It was very soft and gliding over my lips and it even felt as though it wasn’t a lipstick at all. The sensations were utterly unusual. It felt like a powder on my lips, and not a lipstick at all.
The texture is absolutely free of stickiness and it always applies with such a thin layer that even my flakey skin isn’t a problem for it.
My bestie quickly noticed that this vibrant color was absolutely flattering on me. She also tried it out on her lips. They are more pouty and I deem that this lipstick looked way better on her, rather than on me.
By the way, she also mentioned that she would wait for the lipsticks to be in stock again and would definitely buy some shades for her.
The finish of the product is glossy-matte, I can’t find the right words to describe it, but I really adore the way it looks over my lips.
The only gripe (maybe this comes only to my color) is that the lippie fades too quickly from the inside out of my lips. Yet at the same time it stays on the edges of the lips so well, that it becomes very difficult to wash off, because of the tint it has.
I always apply a lip balm over my lips before any lipstick application, because they are always flaking. But even if I don’t wear it over a lip balm, I can be sure that it won’t show my lip blemishes so much, as the Lingerie lipsticks by the brand, for example.
I adore the applicator! I’m not a fan of outlined lips, this is why the kissing lips effect is definitely for me.
But I have to admit that some girls manage to create beautiful contours even with this applicator.
By the way, the lippie smells dope!
I’m sorry for the quality of the photos and the state of my lips, but this is actually what I have.
So, in the end I can say: the lipstick is very easy to apply. It feels super comfortable on my lips. The powder effect is barely detectable for me. It’s rather difficult to get beautiful and contoured lips with this applicator in my case. The product isn’t actually long-wearing.
However, I’m absolutely sure that I’ll purchase some other shades once they’ll stock them in our local NYX corner again.
