I hope you are reading this on April 15th as it’s the perfect day to buy Makeup Geek lip products. Last week Lisa wrote about the stunning Foiled Lip Glosses and this week I’m going to tell you about Showstopper Creme Stains. And why do I hope you are reading this on the 15th? Because through the end of the day all Makeup Geek lip products are 40% off. That my friends is called a steal. Makeup Geek already prices their products at reasonable levels but 40% off should be the tipping point. So many of these beauties are sold out so hurry, hurry!!
UPDATE UPDATE: Makeup Geek is now on Target’s website. This is brand new. Here are the shades of Showstopper they have. This is so exciting!!
Waltz – warm medium tan shade
Flamenco – ox-blood red shade
Cha Cha – medium rose pink shade.
Quickstep – cool toned beige
Mambo – berry pink shade
Jitterbug – light intense coral shade
Arabesque – pale cool lavender shade
Do-Si-Do – light buff shade
Tango – brightened pinky coral shade
Foxtrot – warm pinky nude shade
Showstopper Creme Stains look like a gloss, apply like a gloss, but aren’t a gloss. Instead these 18 long lasting shades are a liquid lipstick that doesn’t feel goopy or dry, ever! These can be built up or reapplied during the day which is what I really appreciate about them.
I was sent three different shades – 2 of which I can easily wear and 1 which is stretching it for someone “over the hill”. But with 18 shades there’s something for everyone, even green lipstick lovers.
Let me start with my favorite and the one I’ve been wearing all the time. FOXTROT is called a warm pinky nude. I see the warmth and feel it’s like a very light mauve that’s on the warm side.
This is a shade that makes me feel comfortable. It’s in my comfort zone and my husband never has wise cracks about the shade. (He doesn’t like me in dark shades). The color looks well with other favorite cosmetics.
Next is Jitterbug, I love the name! It’s a lot brighter than I normally wear but it’s such a perfect spring shade that I’ll often wear it over a very light lipstick to tone it down. But for 90% of you it’s the coral that you’ll look terrific wearing. MUG calls it a light intense coral which is on the spot.
Sadly those two are currently sold out so you’ll have to put them on your wishlist but you can buy TWERK! I’m not sure a rich forest green will suit everyone but it’s perfect for the festivals going on.
Other shades that aren’t sold out that look great to me are
Take advantage of the MUG sale and while shopping look at other cosmetics there like their wonderful highlighters, blush, and eyeshadows. Makeup Geek wants you to always look your best and be a Showstopper. — Marcia
