Lipstick Junkie February 2018 Review
This month is all about shaking off the winter blues. Let’s see what lip products I got!
The included info card gives some information about each of the items including the retail values and description of the theme.
Matteify Liquid Lipstick in Rain – Retail Value $10
This liquid lip is super matte, super purple, and super bright! I always like trying colors that are outside of my comfort zone and, honestly, I like this one. My problem is that it feels tacky the whole time I wear it and it fades off in chunks. It’s also a little tough to apply with even coverage with the applicator.
Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick in Thoroughbred – Retail Value $13.99
It’s nice to see a more neutral shade in the mix this month. This lipstick has several organic oils in it to moisturize lips while giving them a wash of color. While the actual stick feels a little dry, it glides on once it warms a little and really does moisturize. This shade is a sheer, rosy-nude that I feel is pretty universally flattering.
TINT Beauty Unicorn Lippies in Forever After – Retail Value $16
This is a matte, muted coral with subtle shimmer and an opaque finish that lasts for hours. It’s easy to apply but did dry my lips out a little. I’m still looking for the magic balm to put on top of matte lip colors to make them more comfortable without affecting the wear time.
Poise Makeup Professional Hydrating Luxe Lipstick in Frida – Retail Value $18 (found here for $14.40)
Ok, my monochromatic game is really strong here! This may be too dark of a shade for me to wear, well, really ever, but the formula is fantastic. It’s rich, smooth, and so comfortable. I like that the finish is “semi-satin” because it doesn’t accentuate my lip lines. Plus, I think this color needs the added depth that the shine gives to it.
Here are swatches of all of the products (left to right): Honeybee Garden lipstick, Poise Lipstick, Matteify Liquid Lip, and TINT Lippie.
Verdict: This month’s Lipstick Junkie has a value of $57.99. I’d say it’s a 50/50 for me. The two lighter shades are certainly ones I will wear and the two darker shades are probably going to be sitting pretty on my vanity and not on my lips. I was pleasantly surprised by most of the formulas. I think that if you like to play around with lip color and like to try new brands you may not find yourself, then this box is a good value. It probably isn’t suited for someone who likes only neutral tones. I expect that we’ll start seeing some brighter colors next month now that warmer weather is coming (hopefully).
