I ordered these gorgeous lipsticks from Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup, in my last order. I am not normally about pink things but there is something about these pink and purple shiny bullets that I can appreciate. Plus I have always thought of myself as a bit of a geek so the name of this range, Lip Geeks, resonated with me. Makeup Revolution has a deal going at the moment where they are selling these Lip Geeks in collections where you get 6 shades for GBP8 (about AU$16) which is the equivalent of two free lipsticks – so who could resist!
I chose the collection called ‘Dare to be different and make Barbie jealous!’ but there are a total of four collections to choose from in this deal.
As I have already touched on, the packaging of these is really great. They look impressive! The colours in this particular collection are nice range of shades so I was happy with the selection offered in this particular deal. These lipsticks are very creamy and are quite hydrating on the lips. The pigmentation is nice but you need to layer it up a little if you want a vibrant look. They aren’t super long wearing, but I feel like they do wear away quite evenly so they don’t seem to be high maintenance. At times they seem to gather in the lines of the lips a little but a lip liner seems to address this issue.
I must say there is one lipstick in this collection that has been very disappointing. The shade Marshmallow Kiss is a bit of a fail for me. It is hard to tell from the swatch above, but this shade, unlike the others here, is pretty patchy and streaky. I was really looking forward to this colour but I just can’t wear it. Even with a lip liner it wears very strangely on the lips and gets patchy and collects in the lines of my lips 😦 In comparison the other shades are smooth and creamy and apply really easily so I am not sure why Marshmallow Kiss is so different, but there you go. As I officially received two of these lipsticks for free as part of the deal, I am not too devastated that one of them hasn’t worked for me.
Overall, I do like the Lip Geeks. I feel like they are low maintenance lip colours that are really easy to slip on as you are walking out the door to look a bit more put together. From this collection my personal favourites are ‘Total Diva’ and ‘Barbie is Jealous’ which are bright colours that are so fun. Now that I have tried these Lip Geeks I can say that I actually prefer the Icon Pro Lipstick range from Makeup Revolution, but if you see a colour or collection from the Lip Geek range that you really love and are curious to try, you can buy them from Makeup Revolution at a really amazing price.
