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.
