Happy Monday everyone!

And happy June too!  We are half way through this year.  Crazy!!!

Today’s review is on a product I received in my May Boxycharm.

When I found out we would be receiving a lipstick from The Lip Bar I was so excited!

I know of The Lip Bar from the American reality show “Shark Tank” and thought their product sounded amazing.

Many of their lip colors were bright and bold blues,and greens and I was a little worried that I would get something WAY outside of my comfort zone!

Price:

$20

Description:

Give your lips a splash of color with these bold hues from The Lip Bar.  Handcrafted with a unique blend of natural ingredients such as Vitamin E, shea butter, and avocado oil, these lipsticks are designed to moisturize, soften, and amplify lips while setting you apart.

Texture:

This is very creamy and smooth.

Application:

I love how this applies.  It just glides onto my lips and feels incredibly moisturizing.  You can definitely build up the color.

Wear Time:

This did wear pretty well.  It’s not meant to hold up all day, but what I love is that it did leave a slight tint to my lips.  Even after hours of wear, my lip still felt very hydrated and moisturized.

Scent:

No noticeable fragrance.

Overall Thoughts:

I will be honest.  I wasn’t too sure how this color would work for me.  I love purple hued lipsticks like Mac’s Rebel, but this is even more bold.  The first time I wore this, my husband looked a little freaked out!

But I noticed throughout the day, the color started to fade and I was left with this beautiful flush of purple/pink on my lips.

So the next day, I applied the lipstick, left it on for a few minutes, and then blotted.  I was left with that beautiful wash of color, but it was definitely more tame.  I then applied just a little gloss and that was it.

Let me tell you….I received SO many compliments that day.  Everyone was asking what color I had on my lips!

I loved pulling the lipstick out of my purse and seeing their reactions, not only to the gorgeous packaging, but to the bright color!

Looking at their website, I am interested in trying out Cosmo, Kiss Me and Vesper.

They even have four lipglosses that I am definitely interested in trying out!

All in all, I am so glad I gave this a try and went outside of my comfort zone.

Have a beautiful and wonderful day!
