Every summer it’s the same story; how do you transition your makeup from what you wear in winter, to something suitable for heat and humidity?
This is especially true when I take a vacation. A combination of skin that hasn’t seen sunlight in 6 months and the fact it’s boiling and any makeup slides right off.
I have tried a few items from the collection and thought I’d feedback with my thoughts…..
Gotta say, I didn’t think I’d like this. I don’t like anything that stains as (in my experience) it dries my lips out.
These feel different though. They set to a matte effect. The product is thin, so it literally is like a tattoo…or a very natural flush to the lips.
I thought this was going to be a permanent colour that didn’t budge, but I was surprised at how easily it wiped-off (when I brushed my lips with my hand by accident or took a drink).
Each Lip Tattoo smells like fruit and the colour ‘Litchi’ goes on looking luminous orange, but dries to a beautiful pinky-orange.
Now this is a good product! I have number 011 (Pool Blue). It’s very hydrating, is think like a gloss and has a hint of blue to it. Weirdly wearable, this is great as a balm in the day and I love the feel of it.
This looks like a bronzer and to all intents and purposes, it is a bronzer. But it feels quite different. It has a ‘whipped powdery-mousse’ feel to it. You can sweep this over your face a little more than you can your standard bronzer. I can best compare it to Guerlain’s Terracotta bronzing spray.
Really beautiful and creates a natural and not too overdone sun kissed look.
