This week I’m reviewing the M.N Me Now Generation Long Lasting Lip Glosses* , obtained from Born Pretty Store. If you haven’t heard of them before, they are like the beauty equivalent of eBay and stock everything from makeup, jewelry and makeup holders to stationery, clothing and mobile phone accessories. I was contacted by the store to review some of their products and had the hardest time choosing what I wanted! Everything looked so good and the price tags were amazing 🙂 I do love my higher end brands for makeup but don’t mind trying out drugstore brands which are often just as good.
Two of the products I chose as part of my order were the liquid lip glosses. Although they are called lip glosses, they dry to a matte finish and are essentially liquid lipsticks. I picked up two shades, #3 and #36 which retail for around $2 each.
Shipping from Born Pretty Store is free (yay!) and my order reached me in just under two weeks. I wasn’t expecting a lot from a $2 lip gloss but these were surprisingly good! As with all liquid lipsticks, you need to prep your lips and make sure that there are no flakes. I usually apply a thick layer of lip balm to get my lips smooth, wipe the balm off then apply liquid or matte lipsticks.
Both liquids were easy to apply, I applied one layer and then waited a few minutes for it to dry. Once they were set, they stayed in place through the day, even through eating and drinking. They are slightly drying (as are all liquid lipsticks!), but I didn’t notice any flaking through the day. Shade 36 (the fuschia pink shade) was a lot more comfortable to wear than shade 3, it wasn’t as thick and was very pigmented.
The only negative point about this product is that they remained tacky through the day, you can’t smack your lips together or it will totally kill the matte finish and feel terrible.
Overall, I think that these are good value for value. They’re not as good as my Sephora liquid lipsticks, but they do the job. For $2, you get to choose from 36 colors and you’re getting a long lasting lippy with good pigmentation. I would suggest buying a few and trying them first to see if you like them. Another thing to note is that all shades are not created equally. The pigmentation, finish and comfort vary depending on the shade.
Hope you guys enjoyed the review 🙂 You can purchase these lipsticks from Born Pretty Store for $2 with free worldwide shipping. You can also use a 10% off coupon code PADG10 which will work on all full priced items.
