First off I must say I'm not a huge lipstick fan for day to day wear. I don't usually wear it. More often than not, I wear lip balm every day. But when I go out at night I love a good lipstick! I want something that will last since I'm not fond of touchups. I want something that will not bleed and that will stay on my lips. I don't think that's asking for too much, do you? Lipstick Mixtapes did not disappoint.
I'm reviewing two colors here. Esther and Grind Time.
|Grind Time is on the top and Esther is on the bottom|
|I love how soft and delicate this looks. Almost like I'm not even wearing lipstick at all.|
Grind Time is a vibrant hot pink highly saturated lipstick. On it's own it is very bright. I am seeing bright pink lipsticks like this everywhere. They are very eye-catching. I must admit though on it's own like this I can't pull this off. Grind Time is a creme lipstick that wears like a matte.
While swatting this I realized it looks similar to Cult Nails Bad Devious Nature - turns out they are an exact match to each other! Sorry for the crappy picture, I took it really quick once I noticed they are a perfect match.
|On my lips it took on an almost magenta look once it interacted with my natural lip color.|
I think Safia is putting together a great product and I can't wait to see what colors she comes up with next. Her experience as a makeup artist shines through in her lipstick. It is clear that she knows what people want in a lipstick and has done a great job here. Her lipsticks retail for $12.00 each, but her most popular colors are on sale for 20% off until April 28th and happily Esther is one of them! You can purchase LipStick Mixtapes directly from Safia on her website: http://lipstickmixtapes.com/store
