thumb_IMG_4780_102411. Ciaté London, Liquid Velvet in Risqué $19.00 Full-Size 0.22 oz

First up we have this gorgeous looking vibrant and what appears to look like a fire truck red liquid lipstick. The packaging looks pretty in the clear tube you can see all of the product inside, it almost looks like it’s contained in glass. Even the  stick of the doe foot applicator is clear which is pretty neat but of course it won’t be clear anymore once you start using the product. This color does not appear to look the same on the lips when you first apply it, this bold and bright tomato red color looks orange red, but eventually when it dries in a few minutes it looks a lot like the color in the bottle. This product doesn’t completely dry even though it feels like it is.

Before I first opened the set of the Give Me More Lip set I smelled a scent lingering and it turns out this is the scent that overpowered the whole box. At first it can smell slightly chemically but once you get used to it, it smells sweet and fragrantly. It applies like a creamy mousse, feels lovely on the lips, dries matte, non-sticky, feels moisturizing at first but my lips feels dry after and I feel the need to wet my lips or feel like I need to put a balm on top, has a long-lasting color, slight color transfer with each kiss or drink. It can stain anything you touch including your finger if you decide to clean the inside of your mouth for excess make sure to use a tissue. There are 5 shades to choose from in this line: Swoon (nude), Smitten (rose pink), Sass Pot (bright pink), Risqué (tomato red), and Diva (true red) and the full price retails for $19.00 for a 0.22 oz.

Product Rating 2.5/5 I lowered the rating for this product because even though it is a nice matte liquid lipstick and beautiful bold color, it is high maintenance for me. You have to apply carefully or it will slightly stain the skin around your lip. It can get messy when you eat, especially if you are eating oily food. If you lean your hand on your lips by accident, again you’ll leave a stain and I do not want to constantly check my lips or wonder if it stained outside my lips or whatever I brush against. Plus it tastes and smells slightly like perfume/chemically.


2. Buxom, Mini Full-On Lip Cream in Berry Blast $9.50 Deluxe-Size 0.07 oz

This product smells lovely, it smells like a sweet vanilla butter cake. It glides on wonderfully, smooth, and provides a pretty shine and it is not sticky at all. The Lip Cream line has no shimmer or glitter, just cream of color for your lips. It also makes your lips feel tingly due to the slight plumping effect. These Buxom products have 2 different types of finishes but the tube it is contained in look very similar so make sure to double-check which formula you are getting when purchasing. You do not want to buy this cream one if you were looking for the one with shimmer because this one doesn’t contain shimmer and vice versa! There are 20 colors to choose from in this line and they cost $19 for a 0.14 oz tube.

Product Rating: 4.5/5 This is a lovely product and easy to wear on a daily basis, plus no mirror is needed to apply. It feels refreshing when using this since your lips feels the plumping effect.


3. Buxom, Mini Full-On Lip Polish in Sophia $8.86 Deluxe-Size 0.07 oz

Smells like cappuccino, plumps lips, feels minty as it tingles on your lips. This sheer sweetheart pink makes lips look glossy and healthy. Glides on wonderfully. This formula has shimmer so avoid this if you do not like tiny bits of glimmer in it. You can choose from 99 shades in this line! Each shade has a female name and an image of a sexy girl on their boxes. They cost about $19 for a 0.15 oz tube.

Product Rating: 4/5 This is a nice product if you are looking for something that plumps and hydrates the lips. Just note that you can feel a tingling and plumping, slightly numb sensation on your lips. This may feel nice for some and uncomfortable for others. I like that this formula leaves out: parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.



thumb_IMG_4773_102414. Tarte, Deluxe LipSurgence skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy $3.51 Deluxe-Size 0.05 oz

This has pH-adjusting intuitive technology to provide you with your own personal lip color. It applies clear but changes into a nice pink that enhances the natural color of your lips. No mirror is needed when applying this product. It looks like your lips but better which is perfect for a no makeup look, or to apply on days when you need to quickly step out for a few errands. I love the way it glides on! It is very smooth, it feels soft, hydrating, and moist. Smells like sweet maple reminds me of honey with the tiniest hint of vanilla. This is a nice product but I read reviews that the full-size tube can get quite messy because some of the product comes out when pushing the doe-foot applicator back in… just keep that in mind.

Product Rating: 4.5/5 I increased the rating because this product has some awesome ingredients including: Vitamin E, Flower Extract, and Jojoba Seed Oil plus they leave out parabens and phthalates.


thumb_IMG_4745_102415. Lancôme Paris, Lip Lover in 355 Framboise Etoile $16.78 Deluxe-Size 0.10 oz

Review: This is a 3-in-1 product created to provide shine like a gloss, lasting color like a lipstick, and comfort like a balm. It does exactly all 3! The see-through window of this packaging is a nice touch. It helps to see the actual color in the tube and also shows how much product you have left. The product glides on like butter, feels silky, and smooth. It is not sticky at all, gives a nice shine, and gloss. Feels hydrating and the color is gorgeous on the lips. You can control the tint of the product by slightly removing some of the excess off to show a tint of color and shine or full on bright berry lips. It has a unique flat doe-foot applicator and it feels really soft, it has a sweet scent, and looks very flattering on the lips. This product can be applied without a mirror.

Product Rating: 4/5 I lowered the rating because the ingredients aren’t too friendly and I don’t like the taste of the product when it slightly enters my mouth so I must always wipe the inside off with my finger.

Overall Thoughts: I’ve always been a lipgloss girl and still am. I’m glad to try some of the products in this set because some of them are too pricey to purchase and many of them are not something I would personally pick out for myself. The top 3 from this set in the order of most liked are:

1.Tarte, Deluxe LipSurgence skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy I like that this is a no fuss, no mirror needed kind of gloss that gives your lips a tint of naturally looking and healthy color. This is one I would purchase in full-size.

2. Lancôme Paris, Lip Lover in 355 Framboise Etoile This is a surprisingly pretty color and feels wonderful too. I like that I can control the tint of it and that it lives up to the claim. This is one I would purchase in full-size if I had the extra money.

3.Buxom, Mini Full-On Lip Cream in Berry Blast I’m not the biggest fan of the tingling sensation on my lips but the gloss is pretty and glides on nicely. The tingling can feel almost numbing especially when you first apply it but eventually within a few minutes it doesn’t feel as intense. I like that it isn’t sticky and it smells nice. This is one I would purchase but in a different color so I can see what the other shades look like.

I hope this review was somewhat helpful if you were deciding on purchasing any of these! If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
