I bought one of those lipsticks with a flower inside

Sometimes I fall for those stupid sponsored posts on Facebook, where it shows a beautiful life-changing make-up product. I don’t even remember what site I bought this from but it was $8 and took around 4 months to arrive. I thought it was lost, or just never shipped.

The packaging itself is pretty, the lipstick itself is clear, but supposed to turn into a colour once applied.

However, I found that it didn’t really do much in terms of colour my lips, but give it a sheer gloss.

Oh well! Sometimes you just get what you pay for.

SHANY Persian Blue

I’ve always wanted to try a dark coloured lip stick so I picked Shany’s Persian Blue on Amazon. It looked super dark in the tube.

I think my lips are dark and probably require some concealer before bright colours because it turned out more purple. I think I still look beauty goth though!

SHANY Lipstick

As a daily browser of Amazon, I discover a lot of new brands I haven’t heard of before. One of these is Shany, the same company that I recent ordered makeup brushes from. The quality of those were amazing for the price so I looked at some other things on their line. I decided to order their set of 12 Slick & Shine Lipstick.

Inside the box there are 12 elegant black tubes with the lip stick colours. I love things with simple design and I think they did well in this area!

There are a variety of vivid colours. They are smooth and super easy to apply without doing anything else (I don’t really use liner). A few of the colours may be a little strange but life hack: lipstick can also be used to add colour to other places on your face (cheeks, eyes, dark circles etc). I’ll find uses for the colours I don’t use on my lips for sure.

There was this slightly weird envelope in my package encouraging a good review in return for more free product. Disclaimer: I didn’t do this and views are my own. The free gift (perfume, which I’m allergic to) wasn’t really worth it and I think they could get good reviews on their own!
