Today I’m swatching and reviewing the lip products that I got at the Generation Beauty event.
First up we have a Melted Chocolate Liquified Long Wearing Lipstick from Too Faced in Chocolate Honey. *Generation Beauty Freebie at the Too Faced booth*
Our bestselling Melted and Melted Metal Liquified Lipsticks went through the candy factory for a delectable makeover in six new cocoa-powder-infused shades. Each mouth-watering tube comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, high-impact, saturated color, while an innovative, angled velvet tip allows for precise application. Exclusive technology inspired by the molten form of lipstick during lab production keeps lipsticks melted for the most high impact color and rich shine possible.
This liquid lipstick is fairly long wearing and keeps it shine, very comfortable on the lips, but does not feel like a goopy lip gloss. (In case you didn’t know, I’m not a big fan of most lip glosses). It is a nice brown toned neutral on me since I’m still pretty pale from winter. On darker skins it would probably be a gorgeous nude shade.
Up next we have the Prettifying Lip Oil from Essence Cosmetics. *I purchased this as part of the “pick any five items for $15 CAD” deal that they had at the Essence booth*
oil you want. enriched with jojoba oil to provide the lips with intensive moisture. the light, non-sticky texture offers a subtle-colour shine.
It is available in three different tints: 01 i care for you, honey, 02 first help, pinky and 03 SOS, my heart.
I did not think that I was going to like this because it looks a lot like a sticky lip gloss, but I’ve been using it non-stop all weekend! It does a good job keeping my lips moisturized. It has a faint fruity scent which fades quickly after applying. It is a very faint tint that shows on the lips, but does not show in a skin swatch.
Up next is the Longlasting Lipstick from Essence Cosmetics in shade 14 Adorable Matt!. *Generation Beauty Freebie from the Essence booth*
longlasting love… you simply have to fall in love with the longlasting lipsticks by essence. the lipsticks provide your lips with intensive color for several hours without drying them out. you’re sure to find whatever you’re looking for – from bright pink to intensive red and chilled-out berry to subtle nude shades. the essence logo on the texture and the matt, black packaging with a ring of color to match the actual color of the lipstick are true eye-catchers!
This is my first lipstick from Essence. I don’t find it to be drying and the colour is fairly long wearing. A fun colour for spring and summer!
Last but not least we have the Nudestix Gel Color Lip and Cheek Balm in shade Pulse (pretty plum nude). *Generation Beauty Freebie from the Nudestix booth*
What it is: An super-moisturizing lip balm with rich color and gel shine.
What it does: Bring ultimate shine, smooth coverage, and a pop of color to lips with Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm. It’s formulated with over 30 percent ultra-hydrating, lip-protecting plant lipids that are sourced from rapeseed, sunflower, cotton seed, and soybean—plus, vitamin E as an antioxidant. It provides vibrant color with smooth coverage, while the gel polymers impart a fresh, wet gloss without stickiness.
This lip and cheek balm has all the shine of a lip gloss without the dreaded goop effect that I dislike. It is super moisturizing and smooth. I’m definitely going to be wearing this one a lot this summer! It is a beautiful pinky plum toned nude shade that will work well on a wide range of skin tones from light to dark. I have not worn it on my cheeks yet though.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
