Hi Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday season & new year celebrations! I needed some time off after taking my finals — thankfully I graduate in May! So let’s just get straight into the review! Today’s post is all about lip cremes!
The lip crémes launched some time ago & I believe they offer 12 shades. These are beautiful– I’m loving the formula, but I think the price tag is a little steep, however, this is a luxury brand being sold at Neiman Marcus. If you’ve ever purchased a product from this line, you know the performance is amazing, however, I can understand if that doesn’t justify the tag. To be honest, I’m a college student ballin’ on a budget & I wouldn’t spend $42 on a lip product (it’s pricy & I’d much rather splurge on skincare or a product for highlighting).
These are the two lip cremes I’ll be featuring in the review. Here we have Affinity & Truth. These are full coverage and incredibly moisturizing on the lips. The best way to describe these is a product that doesn’t have a glossy finish, nor will it completely dry matte like a liquid lipstick.
I have dry lips, so this compliments me & I won’t get those cracks/ lines on my lips. They are infused w/ vitamin E which I’m sure is the reason why they’re so comfortable to wear. They’re also long lasting, but I’m one who never cares to reapply, or touch-up if you will.
Truth, which is the beautiful cool toned red is especially stunning & perfect for a night out around town with your significant other.. you know, Valentine’s day is around the corner 😉 Affinity has to be my favorite of the two! These are both gorgeous for the season & year round if you’re daring.
As you can see here, it’s a doe foot applicator making it easy to apply. You get .22 oz fl oz. of product for $42. Affinity swatched ^Truth swatched ^
Overall, I think these are beautiful, but I find them to be pricey for the average person! If you love what you see & want to test them out, you can go to your local Neiman Marcus, who knows, maybe you’ll fall in love with one, two are even all of them. Ouch, so dangerous! Bye for now & see you all soon!
