Morning beauties! I have makeup to share today, yay! I know you are all on the quest for the perfect lippie, just like I always am. I've found some gems along the way and some that aren't so great. I am thrilled to share Highlight Cosmetics with you today. It's a makeup brand, specializing in liquid lipsticks made from natural ingredients such as turmeric, green tea and sea kelp (just to name a few). Highlight Cosmetics is made in the USA, and is gluten, parade and cruelty free. How cool is all that? And these gorgeous lipsticks really pay off in color and wear time. There are 10 shades to choose from, both plain matte and metallic matte. They are $25 each. Okie dokie, shall we jump in to the post? Let's go!
I received 2 shades to try out, Desert Mirage and Rare Nebbiolo. I like the packaging and that you can see the color through that little peek-a-boo cutout.
These liquid lipsticks are highly pigmented and moisturizing, with a soft velvety feel that doesn't leave your lips feeling dried out. Aside from not flaking or feeling dry, the color really lasted for a long time! I wore both of these on separate occasions and they lasted though eating and drinking!
Dessert Mirage is a soft brown-neutral shade with a metallic matte finish. I love the color, but did feel it was a bit close to my skin tone so it didn't show up as well as the other shade. Didn't matter because it's the perfect color for a beachy, barely there makeup look!
Rare Nebbiolo is a metallic matte berry shade that I found quite flattering! I usually don't care for berry shades on me but the finish of this one made it so gorgeous. I didn't find it to be too bright either. I love this color for a fun day look or a sexy date night.
