Whip Hand Cosmetics is empowering and glamourizing lipsticks with their new collection

whip hand empowered site

I’m not a redhead but I’d love to look good with red hair. A few weeks ago I was getting my hair tinted (where did that gray come from?) and one of the employees was sporting the most stunning shade of red. I could not stop staring at it. I told her and her hairdresser half a dozen times how much I loved it. The very next day I was told about a collaboration with the blog How to Be A Redhead (by Stephanie and Adrienne Vendetti) and Whip Hand Cosmetics. When Whip Hand reached out to me about this collaboration and offered me lipstick palettes to review and two to give to my readers, well I was ecstatic. I’m a brunette but that doesn’t matter when it comes to beautiful cosmetics. whip hand glamoured site

Whip Hand and those beautiful bloggers collaborated to create GlamouRED and EmpoweRED to find a shades that would be perfect for any shade of red hair (or brown or blonde or gray as the case may be). I agree it’s harder to find perfect colors for redheads since they have such uniqueness but the rest of us can take advantage of that and make it work for us too. These palettes are brand new and just being launched; the first sale day was Monday March 18th. While they call GlamouRED the night palette and EmpoweRED the day palette, I just think they are beautiful lip shades that you could wear whenever you want.

When you purchase one of these palettes you’ll get 4 gorgeous lip creams as well as a Stilazzi covered lipbrush ($49). The pans in these are removable so if you finished one or wanted to replace it you can buy individual pans of other shades from Whip Hand ($9). Stilazzi brushes are excellent and are sold at Whip Hand’s physical store but not on their website, it’s valued at about $19.

Let’s start with DAY aka EMPOWERED

EmpoweRED

EmpoweRED

The lip colors look quite dark but they surprised me when I realized that there were slightly different finishes to the 4 colors so that I could get a sheerer look if I wanted or I could sheer out one of the lipsticks by topping it with another shade. These don’t have individual names. The colors, in my words, are cherry which has a slight sheen to it, dark pink, glossy warm pink and a coral red. Whip Hand calls this their cool lip creme palette. Swatches on my fingers and arm are actually darker than they appear on my lips.

I was absolutely positive that I would only like EmpoweRED so when Whip Hand offered to send me a palette that’s what I picked. But they knew better and sent me GlamouRED to prove what gorgeous shades these are. Looking at the pictures of my fingers, the colors in my words are a cherry red but it’s brighter than the cherry in the other palette, a golden top coat which is used to make this go from day to night, a sheer coral, and a warm pink that’s brighter than the one in Empowered.

Besides shade differences I find that GlamouRED has 2 brighter shades and 2 light shades where EmpoweRED are mostly the same intensity. Either way, how could you go wrong?

As much as I think the Vendetti ladies are amazing for what they’ve done for redheaded beauties I have to totally disagree with them when they said: “We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Whip Hand Cosmetics to create lip palettes exclusively for redheads! “. These are NOT exclusively for redheads as this brunette proves. They are amazing for redheads AND for everyone else who loves a great lip cream and a fun company. — Marcia

Now for the fun part. Whip Hand Cosmetics has generously donated one of each palette for Beauty Info Zone readers.

  15. Bring on the GlamourRed!! I’ve always been called a “Glamazon”, so the GlamourRed is def my choice. I had visited their FB site many times, and was a redhead most of my life until the grays set in. Now I have red undertones, brunette and blonde with my gorgeous natural silver as my highlights. I hit all of the hair shades except black! Thanks BeautyInfoZo for the opportunities you provide to us. Much obliged, dear sweet soul <3 Love and Light, Deborah

    Empowered palette

  17. Danette Aldrich says:

    Wow tough choice, but I think I’d go for glamoured if I had to choose, but truthfully both palettes are stunning.

  18. I’m hoping to win the GlamouRED palette!

  19. teresa koedyker says:

    I would like the empowered!! Thank you for the giveaway!!!

  20. I love that gold finish on Glamoured! Actually I use a gold eye pencil to achieve a similar effect, but this would be much better. Although really, both palettes are fabulous. They may be intended for redheads but they look universally flattering.

  21. I love the GlamouRED so much! I love red and oranges and how it seems to me that you could make multiple combinations with that palette alone…pretty sure I will purchase if I don’t win it 🙂

  22. I’d love to win GlamoRED

  23. I would love either one but the glamouRED looks great

  24. I like them both but I LOVE the EmpoweRED bc it has colors that I feel would look better with my skin tone and my shade of red.

  25. I am cool toned so empowered.

  26. S Carter says:

    I want EMPOWERED

  27. I’d like Empowered.

  28. the warm 🙂

  29. Empowered seems like it would match a lot of skin tones really well and probably what I would prefer on myself but that glamouRED has some really pretty warm colors. I am torn 😉

  30. I just discovered this product and I can’t wait to try it out. I love the GlamouRED shades!
