The gorgeous Marlena, aka Makeup Geek, has some fantastic lip products and we have lots of swatches for you! This week I have Foiled Lip Glosses ($15), and next Sunday Marcia has Showstopper Cream Lip Stain Lip Glosses.samples
The Foiled Lip Glosses are truly dreamy. My oh my these are good!! The texture is incredible – soft with great slip, yet they last for about six hours. The pigment is fantastic, with tons of reflective metallic shine. This is the most comfy lip gloss ever and I just can’t believe the finish…anything else I’ve worn with a mirror gloss is somewhat uncomfortable, but this is sooo nice. Amazing!
The gloss is NOT sticky and it is NOT frosty. The shine is on point, the shimmer is fab, there is no taste and no fragrance. Makeup Geek has a 100% total winner here. Wowza. I have five of the ten shades available with swatches for you. First up is the lightest shade, VIP.
VIP is a light peachy pink. It’s dark enough to work for my thin lips…anything too nude and I just look washed out, but this has enough tint to show up. Actually, I find that if I apply another coat the color gets more intense and deeper. It’s a very pretty, girly shade that isn’t frosty. I love it.
Set List is a medium rose with light pink reflects. This is my favorite of the five shades. Look at how beautiful this is!! This is a perfect spring/summer shade, and if you are only going to buy one lip gloss to transition into the new season this should be it.
Mixtape is a rosy plum that is really gorgeous – look at the foil effect with this one! It’s not very flattering on my thin lips, but if you have full lips you will rock it. I think this will especially remarkable on darker skin tones.
Drumroll is a mid-toned purple with pink reflects, another darker shade that has a marvelous metallic finish. The wear time for this baby is insane – I put this on and I swear it lasted a full seven hours.
Groupie is a brightened fuchsia with purple reflects. This is not as bright with one coat, which is how I wear it and it still lasts a good six hours. If you want it bright, add another coat and it really gets that mirror effect.
I think the Makeup Geek Foiled Lip Glosses are to die for. I am beyond impressed by these lovelies! Other shades available include Acoustic, rich ox blood-red; Backstage, deep purple with royal blue reflects; Headliner, rich copper; Replay, bright pinky coral; and Vinyl, a medium taupe with silver reflects and subtle purple undertones.
