Beauty review: Beaute Weightless Lip Creme

I was catching up with some YouTube videos recently and stumbled across the fabulous Pixiwoo girls vintage inspired looks.  In both of the videos they used this product and it looked amazing - I have linked them both below.



Being a total vintage and make up junkie I couldn't resist and managed to find the product for sale on Love Make Up for a massive £19.  Wow.  I had high hopes after such a high price.

I picked it up in the red, of course, the colour is called Masochist and is a rich red similar to MACs Russian Red.  Beaute describe it as a Helmut Newton red.  Just a little pretentious perhaps but we will forgive them that.

I was very excited when this turned up in the post, the packaging is gorgeous, an expensive looking plastic tube with a classic lipgloss style dip in wand applicator. 

I have to say I am pleased with the product - the colour is gorgeous and it applies easily.  It is completely odourless and is not sticky like a lip gloss but I wouldn't say it is weightless, you do know you have it on.

Being a creme rather than a lipstick it does have a little more of a satin look to it than some vintage aficionados might want, but I don't have a problem with that.  It also lasts well - going on smooth and where it fades, doing so evenly rather than leaving your lips looking patchy.  It is also really moisturising, my lips felt much better after wearing this and I had none of that flaking lip crap that Ruby Woo gives you. (I'm really starting to hate that lipstick).

The only negative, aside from the horrendously high price, is that it does feather on my aging smokers lips (must give up, must, must, must) and so I have found that I do need to wear a lipliner with this (MAC Cherry is a good match). 

All in all I like the product - it works well both for daytime looks applied thinly and also looks great applied more thickly for evening and in photos. 

 wonky applied and a bit of an up nose shot but here you go.

All in all a great product but not something I think I will repurchase given the high cost and the slight feathering.


  1. Looks lovely on you, you have very luscious full lips so all lippies look fab on you! I too would resist spending £19 on even a great product, but it does look lovely.

  2. Russian Red lipglass bleeds like a stuck pig on me - I hope it isn't as bad as that!

  3. I love it so much! I haven't tried it yet but was thinking it might be interesting OVER Ruby Woo or other red lippies to see if it helps with bleeding. (which I also will never repurchase - love the color, hate the formula). I use the MUFE red waterproof pencil and my Too-Faced clear lip pencil thing that I can't be bothered to look up right now but mentioned to you on FB. I'm delirious and rambling, I'm sorry.

  4. I meant to say I use Beaute Masochist WITH my MUFE lip pencil and get no bleeding. Now I'll stop ;)

  5. Do you know, I am so glad people are coming out as Ruby Woo haters! I used to think that there was something hideously wrong with me for disliking it so much when vintage girls the world over rave about it so.

    I know a lot of people have already reviewed Rockalily but I would like to add to the chorus of "it's fabulous" and confirm that I get no bleeding or feathering from it. I wear it every day in a hot airless office and get little chance to reapply over a 10 hour period, yet it still looks good at the end of the day. I have never found a lipstick I love as much (thank you ReeRee!) and will definitely repurchase when my current lipstick runs out.

  6. Hmm, I've never heard of these lip products, but they sound mighty similar to my current favourite (and possibly the subject of a future blog post, I love it that much) lip colour, the 'Pout Polishes' by Sleek make up.

    They're a creamy consistency, so not at all sticky like lip gloss (I hate lip gloss for its stickiness), they're moisturising and sink in without sliming all over when you absent-mindedly touch your face, and the pigmentation seems really good, as the colours are nice and bright and last well. I've got the pink cadillac one (which is nothing like it looks on the model on the website) but there is a 'scandal' red one that looks like a good vintage shade. Cheap, too!

  7. its a really beautiful colour!

  8. Masochist = Helmut Newton Red *hahaha! so funny....looks great tho!
