Well, summer vacation is just about half way over. How is yours going, have you done anything interesting or exciting? We have been camping a lot on the weekends and just hanging out by the pool and/or lakes during the week.
I’ve been busy and enjoying being outside, so I’m blogging pretty minimally lately. Today though, I’m talking about some great liquid lipsticks from Models Own. This was the first time I have tried anything from the brand and I am impressed and definitely want to try more products! Typically, I don’t opt for red lips in the summer but I do think these would be a great choice for attending a cookout or pool party because they will pretty much last you all day.
I love the sleek packaging and frosted plastic tubes. The Lix Matte Liquid Lipsticks are .22 oz which is about double the size of ColourPop’s liquid lippies. Also, I should note that these do have a significant peppermint scent and the impart a slight cooling sensation when applied. I don’t really notice an issue and the cool feeling fades after a short while. If you are sensitive to mint though, I would skip these. There are currently only 6 shades available at Ulta, but there are 12 shades available on the Models Own website.
- Candy Cane is a cool toned muted red.
- Strawberry Mojito is a warm, vibrant strawberry red.
These lipsticks apply very evenly and they have a soft, velvet like feel while applying. They are completely opaque and dry down completely in about a half an hour. I didn’t find them to be too uncomfortable or dry feeling, but I did add a shimmery lip topper after a few hours. The staying power was pretty awesome. I applied this in the late afternoon for photos, then I ate a sausage, pepper & onion sub for dinner, brushed my teeth after and my lipstick still looked perfect! I applied the lip topper before I went to work and when I got home at 10:30, it still looked damn good. Now I’d say thats a great lipstick.
