The Good, The Best & The Sticky

Hello lovelies,

So I have been gone for ever and suffice it to say life was far to busy in the meanwhile. However it has been successfully busy so I will not mourn my lack of free time too much. My dance team raised over $1000 for donation through a charity showcase that we organize and as Captain it certainly kept me very involved; also  I'm looking at a potential full time position/promotion at work, which will be fantastic as unfortunately I will soon no longer be a carefree university student :(.

Well enough of the sad stuff, I have my mug of tea on hand as I bravely hazard my first product review (I'm shaking in my not so fashionable pajamas).

Lets get the bad out of the way, to be perfectly honest the reason I stopped wearing and buying lip glosses in high school was because of the sheer sticky factor, and frankly the Juicy Tube has given me flashbacks to the days of glitter blush and hair on my lips with the slightest draft.
Here it what the product description says:
This ultra shiny gloss sweeps on a sheer, sexy wash of color in a variety of shades and flavors. You’ll love the ultra-glossy formula that glides on easily with its tube-tip applicator. Perfectly portable, this essential gloss discreetly slips in a pocket or purse for a quick fix of fabulous anytime.
Now it certainly is portable and will definitely slip into a pocket or purse easily which is where the appeal ends for me. In the tube it shows as a beautiful rosy/coral color with golden shimmer spread throughout. It gives me dreams of having gorgeous pinky lips perfect for the spring. These dreams do not come true :(, on first application the color disappears almost entirely and indeed becomes an extremely sheer shadow of the color in the tube with what looks like an overdose of glitter. Now all of this wouldn't be too bad if it felt amazing and gave me moisturized lips. 

It does not.

It does however, feel as if I have coated my lips in a mixture of glue and grease, and the sticky feeling continues long after I have wiped it off because it leaves a residue. Now I did wear this on its own at first but when I tried it a second time paired over my Revlon peach lipstick with a slight application on the pout it made a very pretty effect and did minimize the stickyness some, I will not be repurchasing though because with the amount of product I use and how much is in the tube it is sure to last me quite a while. 

Now the good stuff, I am a true to heart lipstick girl. If I'm going to wear any makeup at all (and most days i'm to lazy to) I'll have a swipe of lipstick and it instantly makes me feel more glam and put together. Currently I'm loving Revlon's Peach and Rosy Nude lipsticks. 

Revlon Peach 075

Revlon Peach is gorgeous true peach tone that can be sheer or built up and Rosy Nude is my absolute favorite everyday go to lipstick. In the tube it looks like pinkish mauve toned color, on the lips its buttery soft, moisturizing, and a beautiful natural pink tone that doesn't disappear but makes my lips look better. I would recommend these two colors for most skin tones as they complement my Indian coloring as well as my lovely white friends as well. 

Revlon Rosy Nude
Now while the two lipsticks are may day to day products the Red Velvet Lip Butter is not only my going out product but easily wearable as a stain for daily use as well. As the name implies it is a creamy smooth formula with rich coloring. I would say that it is a perfect blend between a balm and lipstick.  Not a true bright red its rich maroon tones looks more sophisticated and is far more wearable. It also gives a slight shine to your lips without any of the stickyness. Definitely an ideal product, I will have to try one of the more natural looking colors and I might have found my new go to product.
 Well thats all for today, hope everyone is enjoying the gorgeous weather and Ill see  you soon and more regularly ;).

  1. Ugh....I hate lipgloss like that!!! I love those second two lip colors. I'm more of a chapstick person but I have found my perfect lipstick: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine! It goes on and feels like chapstick but gives you nice color, woohoo :)

  2. I have yet to try out a Chanel product but I'll definitely be treating myself with my first pay check :)
