We’re taking a peek at Peeks Cosmetics lip formulas

Peeks Cosmetics lips

A new brand that we expect you’ll be hearing about is PEEKS COSMETICS. This fun company makes something for all cosmetics lovers. The Beauty Info Zone team decided to concentrate on their variety of lip products and we were sent quite a few to share with you. All Peeks Cosmetics products are gluten-free and cruelty-free which sweetens our smile.

Among the lip products from Peeks are Matte Lipsticks, Lip Gloss, and Lip Blasters. Colors range from soft to wild. The textures of the products make them easy to wear and look great on our lips.

MARCIA’S LIPS WEAR:

Love Thang and Quik Sand Matte Lipsticks

Love Thang and Quik Sand Matte Lipsticks

I profess all the time that matte lipsticks aren’t my favorite and I still mean it. But I really enjoy wearing Love Thang from Peeks. This is a very soft nude with pink undertones. It won’t suit a lot of people but it suits me perfectly. I don’t draw attention to my lips but I want something that will give me a finished appearance. While Love Thang and Quik Sand (light brown) are matte, they are totally comfortable and feel moisturizing on my lips. I can even wear them when I haven’t prepped my lips with an exfoliator and my lips don’t look flaky!

If you wear blue lipstick I think that After Dark would be amazing. At my age though I’d be put in the ER to see what’s wrong with me!

Lip Glosses in Control and Dollhouse are shiny and very hydrating. Lip glosses from Peeks are enriched with Vitamins A, C, and E so you aren’t just looking good, you are helping your lips retain moisture. Control has the prettiest iridescent look, I love twirling the tube to see the orchid shade transform. This lovely orchid shade can be layered if you want a darker look. Dollhouse looks more opaque in the tube than it is on my lips. This is a soft, very shiny pink that is quite light on its own but will enhance most any lipstick. Actually my favorite look is to apply Dollhouse over Love Thang. My lips look juicy without being the least bit sticky.

One more category of lip products from Peeks: Lip Blasters. These are high intensity colors that are loaded with pigment. There’s a minty smell to them which I notice for a few short minutes.

Peek Cosmetics Purple Kisses Lip Blaster

Peek Cosmetics Purple Kisses Lip Blaster

I have Lip Blaster in Purple Kisses which I’d describe as a liquid lipstick. The Lip Blaster is very long wearing especially compared to the Lip Gloss. This formula is my favorite of the three. While they call Purple Kisses a light purple, I call it a deeper violet. It’s the texture of this that makes me want other shades like Sexy (soft pink) and Jersey Flower (lavender). As pretty as Purple Kisses is, it’s even better with a light coat of Control to make a va-va-voom lipshade.

LISA’S LIPS WEAR:

Peek Lipsticks are really, really nice – and the colors surprised the heck out of me.  Yes, they are matte lipsticks, but they have a velvety texture and aren’t too drying.

Peeks Chocolate Cake and My Way Lipsticks

Peeks Chocolate Cake and My Way Lipsticks

Chocolate Cake is a pretty brown that I never would have thought I could wear in a million years. And, ironically enough, that isn’t me wearing it in the photo! It’s my daughter – she has gorgeous lips so you can see the color much better. It looks fabulous on her and I wear it too…in fact I can’t believe how much I reach for this.

My Way is a beautiful burgundy shade that veers toward berry on me. This is a typical ‘Lisa’ shade and I love that I can do the trendy matte thing without my lips looking dry, which can be very aging.

In terms of lip gloss, I went with two extremes – extreme matte and extreme shimmer. The Lip Blasters have a mega punch of color and intensity. These stain the lips so once the shine wears off, the color is still there. They have a pleasant minty taste that I like.

Peeks Jersey Flower Lip Gloss and Sexy Lip Gloss

Jersey Flower is a matte lavender shade that I have to admit is not for me, although I need to experiment with it more and pair it with other shades. My 16 year old daughter rocks it by itself, though.

Sexy is a truly stunning shimmery pink that I love love love. I wear this all the time, although I have to be careful because the shimmer can be a little too intense for daytime.

The Lipsticks and the Lip Gloss are $12, and the Lip Blasters are $14. We both love our first peek at Peeks Cosmetics — this line is definitely worth a look!
