I don't wear makeup very often, but for some reason I love to buy it! I check the make-up section every time I go into the store to see what is new, fun and pretty! Lately the trend in makeup seems to be long lasting make-up so I have tried a couple of these products out, and today I will be telling you all about it! There are also a couple of other gimicky things that have sucked me in, and I'll review those too! I'll probably even steal some photos from their website to illustrate my thoughts!
Here we go!
Revlon "Just Bitten" lip stain:I mainly bought this because I was getting married. Alex always tries to dodge my kisses when I am wearing lipstick because he doesn't want to wear it too. So I knew that the next time I saw this in the store I would be purchasing it for my wedding day at least. I actually love this stuff! I throw some on in the morning, and get a little surprise later when I look in the mirror because I've forgotten that I put it on. I have a red color and a pinkish color. I honestly can't tell much difference between the two. The color lasts 3-4 hours. One end is like a marker you color your lips with, and the other end is like a clear gloss. I usually use sparkly lip gloss with it, cause I like to sparkle! LOL
Rimmel London Stay Glossy lip gloss:
I bought this in "Stay My Rose." The giant poster in the store promised it would last (up to) six hours! I had high hopes. When I put it on I was excited about the gloss wand, it picked up a lot more gloss than other glosses that I have. I applied it before my psychology class. I figured I wouldn't be eating or drinking or doing much talking so it seemed like a great time to test it out. With minimal mouth contact and movement the gloss lasted about 45 minutes to an hour. I was not impressed with this at all. It wasn't worth the added cost.
L'oreal One sweep eye shadow:
I bought this on my wedding day because I didn't have a lot of time, but I wanted pretty eye shadow. It has three colors of shadow, and a giant eye sized applicator. Honestly when I saw it in the store, I laughed and made fun of it. I officially apologize for that. It worked really well. When you follow the directions it does apply in the stripes, and it takes a minimal amount of blending to make it look professional. My only complaint is that like most eye shadow, it only lasted a couple of hours and settled into my crease quite quickly. Which brings me to my next review!
L'oreal Infallible 24 hour eye shadow:
I bought this one specifically to see if it did what it promised. I bought a purple color. Here is the evidence:
This is what it looked like a day and a half after I applied it. I love this stuff! It didn't settle into the creases or smudge up around my eyes and make me look like a crazed raccoon. I even went out and bought another color after trying this one out!
So those are my opinions of these products. As a little disclaimer, you should know that I used my own money to buy these things, and no one gave me them for free or told me what to say about them.
Thanks for reading!
