My Lovie lipstick collection (review&swatches)
I have wanted to write this post for quite some time and I finally managed to! Review, swatches, photos, enjoy :D
Lovie is a greek cosmetics company and I really like their lipsticks, they cost €2 and they are longlasting without being dry.
Cheap plastic packaging that's easy to break. Another bad thing is the one you can see in the picture below, if you remove the cap too fast and you are not careful you may scrape off half the lipstick! But cheap packaging is okay with me as long as the product itself is good and the price is low.
The ingredients are written on the sticker that seals the lipstick. They are tiny and not very easy to read but I manage to write them down for you. Hope everything is correct :)
Castor oil, octydodecanol, candelia wax, petrolatum, beeswax, ozokerite, lanolin, carnauba wax, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, isobutylparaben, tocopherol acetate(vitamin E).
The actual product
Most, if not all, shades are super pigmented with no.20 to be the most pigmented of all. I usually either pat it on my lips or apply regularly and remove most of it with a tissue because it's too vampy for me. This is my favourite winter dark lipstick and the reason why it's the last one on the swacthes, it was hiding on the back of the drawer with the other winter-coloured lippies.
What I love about these lipsticks is that you don't have to apply lip balm underneath. As long as your lips aren't chapped, they'll look good. They also don't feel drying while you are wearing them. Since they are longlasting, they are not moisturising but they won't suck all the moisture off your lips like other lipsticks or lip stains. I've tried them while eating and drinking and they stay for a long time.
I'm not sure about that. Gina says that they smell cheap plastic but the first lipsticks I bought (the pink ones) smell like bubblegum. The scent kinda fades after some time though. Some other smell chocolate-y and some other like plastic but not too much and definitely not after application.
They lose a point for the cheap and easy to break packaging and the not-always-pleasant smell. Everything else is great!
Would I buy again?
It's a little difficult to say because I already have all the shades. Just kidding! There are plenty more shades and I'd definitely buy them.
Where can you find/buy it-Cost
I'm not sure but I think you can only find them in Greece for now. Of course, you know I love swaps so if you want to try them don't hesitate to send me a mail :D
Now, you already know that one of the gifts for the next giveaway will be the MUA Undressed eyeshadow palette. Why don't we pair it with a nice bold lipstick? Tell me with a comment below which is your favourite colour(s) and the one most of you choose will be included in the gift ;)
