So this was actually one of my Birthday gifts , but it took a while to get here along with a few of my other things. No biggie really as I have been sucked into the world of Animal Crossing New Horizons .
But I still want to take care of my blog and post , plus new show off this really cool liquid lipstick . And Vertigo is such a cool color . Sadly I wasn’t able to capture the blue sparkles, they mainly show up when some of the lipstick smudges or fades . But I was still really impressed with the formula and color . So lets check it out.
First of all the packaging is very simple and the tube reminds me of Jeffree Star’s liquid Velours . The formula is very similar as well , but with a nice scent of lemonade. The swatch on my arm sadly didn’t capture the beautiful sparkles , but you can kind of see them in the lip pictures. It does dry down fairly fast and the doe foot applictor is good for precise lines . Now with all liquid lipsticks I usually try to put a balm first and then apply . But even with that technique , my lips are still a bit dry from the weather and ac . Its been pretty hot out here lately and super dry. The first day I used this lipstick it didn’t show my lip lines that much . But today with the AC and dry weather they were a bit dry . I still like the formula anyway , and its probably one of the better liquid lipstick formulas . Honestly its on par with Jeffree Star lipsticks . I would definitely try out a few of the other colors .
Overall I really Liked this formula and will definitely be trying out some more Sugarpill products in the future. This year I see myself buying more from Indie companies as opposed to more mainstream brands. Not to say I don’t like brands like Urban Decay , Too Faced , or other but they haven’t really wowed me with recent releases. Oh and before I forget.
Bonus Mini Review: For my pictures above I decided to test out the Nudestix sample that came with my Sephora package. I used all of the colors which were Nude 2 , Nude 4 and the darker Nude 7. Nude 4 I believe was closer to my actual skin tone, where as 2 and 7, I mixed. I used these shades mainly to conceal a bit of redness on my face and I was impressed with how nice these applied with my concealer brush. they were not greasy or oily , but also not overly drying. I used a powder foundation over the Nudestix and I really like how it felt on my face. plus I didn’t have any breakouts which I can be sensitive to. I think this is a product that I would actually purchase and use. And I didn’t really see any oxidation either , which can sometimes make me look orangey lol. I’m not sure as to the other shades or how good they would be for extremley lighter or darker tones , and the pack said it was available in 14 shades. So hopefully they plan on releasing more shades for everyone soon.
Well that’s all for today , Hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Have a good Sunday everyone.
