In this review I’ll describe my impressions of use only of the product in the shade Girl Gang. Why? Because reading other reviews, I’ve found out that this shade is different from the line quality-wise. And no one knows the reason why.
I wanted this shade to compliment my lipstick collection. When I first saw it, I couldn't get it out of my mind, because it was incredibly beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. The shade is bomb, that’s true!
There’s one feature that appeals to me so much: you see, the box is red inside. It looks so cool! I’m so delighted each time I open it.
So, let’s pass over to the shade itself. It combines the right amount of purple and fuchsia shades, which looks really sophisticated. The color seems to be rather bold, especially if I wear two coats. So, it’s important to wear pretty bright eye makeup if you wear this lipstick, so as not to make your eyes look boring against such vibrant lips. And of course don’t forget about contouring, otherwise your face will look too flat and face features inexpressive. Hence I conclude that this lipstick, which requires heavy makeup is for evening wear. Or at least to those who are into bold makeup on a daily basis.
Applicator- It’s fairly big and tapered. At first I didn’t get it and couldn't use to draw the lines with it, but later on, I got used to it, though I still think that it isn’t convenient. The most important is to maneuver it right.
Consistency- This is where all the crap about this shade begins. It looks okay: matte lipstick, it dries down quickly, my lips don’t look like a dry raisin with it on, but the color applies so patchily and sheer. And here, my lip liner is a Holy Grail product, because only lip liner that can save the situation, allowing my lips to look more or less smooth.
It’s a very complicated color. It applies patchily even with the help of a lip liner. And it usually takes me a lot of time. I really feel like I’m a hero when I finally manage to get more or less descent results with it.
The lipstick dries down to a completely matte finish, but some time later I faced another drawback of it. The thing is that once I close my lips together, the lipstick can fall out in pieces, forming huge patches on my lips. Well, I don’t get it guys. It dries down quickly, how it is at all possible that it falls out… It looks so weird and crumbling. However, I still feel comfortable wearing this lippie, since there isn’t any significant dryness with it on.
Me, with the Girl Gang shade on my lips. I didn’t take close-ups, because I don’t think such photos will look aesthetic. You can zoom this picture if you want.
Longevity- This is one more bizarre thing about this lipstick. The lipstick is claimed to be long-wearing, right? It leaves pigment behind, but it falls out a lot. I don’t understand how it’s possible.
I feel so insulted by this lipstick. After all, the color is so beautiful, but unfortunately the quality of the Girl Gang shade leaves much to be desired. The quality doesn't live up to the price. It isn’t a drugstore lipstick which might be fussy application-wise. I guess this is the quality of the shade as it is. They haven’t probably worked out its formula to the fullest. As you can see, even the professional cosmetics can be a failure sometimes. That’s why I can’t recommend this very shade. It’s better to have a look at any other from the collection. I saw so many rave reviews of all the other shades from the Always On line.
