Today I want to tell you about a lip product I have been using pretty much all season long. I wouldn’t necessarily describe myself as a lipstick loving gal. In all honesty, I forget to put lipstick on most days, opting for a balm and calling it a day. It’s not that I don’t like lipsticks, I just forget to put some on after I drop off Alex at school.
On days where I do take the time to wear something on my lips, other than lip balm, it is usually a pretty neutral color. I have been brave enough to wear a red or a dark wine color to work, but I usually reserve those for special occasions. So, I stock my little makeup bag with a few options,all of which are neutral.
I picked up the Color Jolt Lip Paint from Maybelline a few months ago. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I am not a fan of lip glosses but this was advertised as something more than just a lip gloss. I was pleasantly surprised by the consistency – very creamy and not sticky whatsoever. The pigmentation is great also. The color I picked up is Stripped Down (05) and on me it looks Mauvy Pink – a little bit like my lips but better kind of color. The applicator is nice – a squeeze tube with a felt top that makes it easy to apply product directly onto your lips. The color range for his line is decent – some classic colors like red, fuchsia, wine, but here are also an interesting color violet color. I am curious to try a few more but I’m waiting for the Summer as I think those would be perfect for that time of year.
The reason why I love this product so much is because it feels moisturizing on my lips, it is easy and quick to apply, and the color is perfect with pretty much any look.
Have you tried these? If so, what color(s)? What are your thoughts?
