My lovely lady at Bon Ton let me see these new pretty lipsticks and I almost bought them all. I only bought two. And pre-ordered another. I don’t have a problem, I swear.
Anyway, these are über moisturizing, extremely shiny, and have amazing, gorgeous, more modern packaging. Take a look.
The packaging on these are so, so sleek. They’re magnetized, with no visible magnet, meaning the magnet isn’t going to jump out and run away. The midnight blue looks classic, and the gold is just so luxe.
Potent is a warm, classic ladylike pink. It’s so smooth and moisturizing, really.
Vengeful Red is, well… a vengeful red. A glorious, beautiful, perfect crimson red. This is maybe the best formula of a red I’ve ever used or seen in my life. A constant-wear for me right now. Not drying at ALL. It’s perfect. AND SHINY. I don’t think I can convey enough how absolutely glossy these are. It’s like vinyl on your lips. And hey, a free teeth-whitening while you’re at it.
These are so… juicy.
One thing that’s a plus for me, but maybe a negative for other people is that these babies stay. And by stay, I mean, they stain. Above is the lipsticks in all their glossy glory, then below is when I wiped with a tissue. While it will smudge if you make it and it will transfer, it’s not going to move unless you make it. Then when you clean up any mess, if there’s any, you’re left with this;
And another extremely important thing to mention is the smell/taste. I haven’t used a lot of Lauder lip products, almost none, because it smelled like plastic and tasted… just… horrible.
Everyone else says they smell like vanilla or some random perfume, I say they smell like a strawberry Starburst (aka, the best ones). There’s no discernible taste at all.
11/10 would recommend.
For those keeping track, this is almost my Audrey Dream Color.
These are about $27 or so, I can never remember. But there’s a ton of gorgeous colors, be sure to check them out.
