The Mythical Mood Lipstick?

Hey guuuuurls.

Have any of you guys heard of “Mood Lipstick”? It’s been around for quite some time.

I was at Sally Beauty Supply one boring day, when I saw a tube of blue lipstick screaming at me from a box.”Pick me! Pick me, Isabella! I’m special!!!” it squealed.

I walked over to see an untouched box of green, yellow, and blue lipstick.The box said “Mood Lips: 3.80”, so I grabbed that pitiful blue lipstick. Truthfully, I’ve always been curious to try on a REAL blue lipstick, but my mother says there’s nothing tackier.

SO. So. First off, this isn’t really a magical “mood” lipstick. It’s just a molecular reaction…you know, sciency stuff.There was a color chart on the box, so I KNEW which color I was getting.

It came in a tube full of gold cursive lettering, and a bullet that didn’t screw all the way down. I hate it when the bullet is half-poking-up all the time…it makes me nervous I’ll take a chunk out of the product.

On my hand it was an interesting, blue-berry sort of color, kind of blue and kind of purple. On my lips it wasn’t much different, and stained my lips AND my hand! EDIT: **After a couple minutes though..it began to change from pink, to bright, berry-fuchsia. Ooooo!

The texture is smooth, glossy, and moisturizing, and the smell reminds of a lot of Maybelline’s Baby Lips, like Sweet-tarts, but I can’t say whether I love this lipstick or not.

Over all, it’s a great three buck lipstick, but I probably won’t repurchase. The funny blue color in the tube DOES get a lot of looks in public, though! Hehe.

Happy Easter, lovelies!

The Truth About Baby Lips

Hi prettifuls.

So. Baby Lips. Hmm.

Are you curious about these? I was. It seemed like everyone was either in love, or seriously hating. I jumped right in and bought three colors, “Grape Vine”, “Cherry Me”, and “Pink Punch”.

Grape Vine: 

This one smelled just like grape Jolly Ranchers or grape Kool-Aid or SOMETHIN. It was a beautiful deep purple color in the tube but came up EXTREMELY SHEER!! Like, so sheer, you could barely tell it was purple. Bleh.

Cherry Me: 

This is basically just like “Grape Vine” except for popsicle-red in the tube. It smelled like Jolly Ranchers and had adorable packaging, but the color was SHEER SHEER SHEER! Blehhhhhhh. Even for a tinted lip balm, it was super sheer.

Pink Punch:

This one was the most pigmented. I think it will look the best on lighter-medium skin tones, because I’ve seen a couple reviews of darker-skinned women who think it looked pretty funky. But it’s definitely the most pigmented out of these three, and adds just the most gorgeous, almost lipstick-like wash of color. I love that you can apply it without a mirror. It’s my fave!

OVER ALL: 

These are very moisturizing for me. They’re like butter, but compared with the Revlon Lip Butters, the Maybelline Color Whispers, and the new L’Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks, the Baby Lips are almost a joke. They’re okay for a tinted lip balm, but I think, in my opinion, you can find better-pigmented, moisturizing drugstore lippies out there.
