As promised in my Sugar Violet gloss review , I mentioned a horrible dud of a lipstick . And here it is , so terrible . Lets get this one over with . I don’t like spending too much time on bad reviews .
So my reasoning for this purchase was I wanted to try a dark/black lipstick. I used to wear them when I was younger but most of the formulas were pretty lacking . And you could only get black during halloween unless it was through Manic Panic’s makeup line . And even those were kind wierd. So in my quest to find a nice black shade I saw this and was like “Oh wow ! It reminds of Prudence’s lipstick in the Sabrina series”.
As you can see the lipstick in the tube looks beautiful. Its a nice black with blue shimmer , so I was curious as to how this would look on my lips. Would it look all Galaxy like? Or witchy? Sadly it looks neither as its streaky and slips around . Like this may be the worst lipstick I’ve bought in a long time.
The formula is very slippery,with no notivable smell. It applies with obvious streaks, and just looks pretty bad upclose or far away. Also I noticed it tends to spread really badly. Its one of those that I wouldn’t leave the house with this on. The only thing I can think of to do with it now is to use it as a topperfor one of my grey or dark blue shades. Well thats all i have to sat about this lipstick for now. I would nnot reccomend this,its pretty cheap online but definitely not worth it. With dark colors like black and grey, you needa pretty solid formula to look polished. Any imperfections and it can really ruin the whole dark lip look. Have any of you guys tried a product that was just bad? And if so when it was a cheaper drugstore product(not a lot of money wasted) or was your experience with a pricier prestige product? Let me know in the comments.
Bonus review:Midnight Mystery over Nyx Haze.
Okay so I decided to wipe off the gross gunk and try it out over Haze, the grey matte lip from Nyx. And it was okay, honestly it juist made Haze greasy, I feel like I get a better effect with Unicorn Tears or the Matte-Talic transformer over my grey lip.
Yeah its not the best topper either. its just a bad lipstick.No more Revlon stuff for a while for me.
