Packed up inside my first fun box of #FabFitFun was a three piece full sized lip kit! My box contained the deep red version. I’m not entirely sure how they decide which shade to send you (it may be a flip of a coin), but they also have this product in Deep Nude (which is more of what I would wear) and Pink. If to pay a slightly higher fee to become a #FabFitFun VIP member you get to pick which color you’d like sent. To learn more about #FabFitFun click HERE!
Anyhow, on to the review. I will be the first to admit that my lip routine could use a little sprucing up! I’m typically a lip moisturizer and maybe (emphasis on maybe) a lip gloss or swipe of a drugstore brand lip stick and I’m out the door kinda gal. The fact that there were 3 different products for my lip sent me into a state of slight anxiety (especially staring at the deep red color).
I started with the lip liner and, although this is more than likely user error, I ended up looking something like a circus clown (or like that girl in the bar trying to fix her lips after one too many cocktails…you know that girl…hopefully you are not her). Once I got the hang of it, it was nice to have a clean outline of my lips. The liner is super creamy and blended nicely into my lips. Grade A so far!
The next step (again could be user error) I didn’t realize that the liquid lipstick was intact liquid since it was in a traditional looking lipstick case. I proceed to pull on it (growing more and more frustrated with the obviously flawed packaging) until the top came off revealing what looked like a screw top (the reality of the situation began to settle in and I…looking in the mirror, gave myself a “you’re one fry short of a happy meal this morning” look). Let me tell you, you do NOT need much of this product unless you are going for a very serious red look. It is definitely more like a lip (and finger and chin) stain, than liquid lipstick. Still the color is undeniably amazing! Grade B
The final phase of this lip kit adventure I am most comfortable with….lip gloss! I just love the shimmer and shine of a good lip gloss. If you are in your 20’s I’d say slather that stuff on as much as you want. For us chic-a-dees in our 30’s (almost 40’s) I’d say it is better to stick to application of lip gloss towards the center of your lips only! A little dab will do ‘ya in this step ladies.
A gentle rub of the lips and you are good to go! Make sure to check your teeth until the product it totally set. I had
to flash a smile in the mirror 2-3 times and swipe some red residue.
This color (though a serious bold choice for a midwest day look) stays put for the long haul! This 3-piece set retails for $48 and I would say you are getting serious bang for your buck on this one.
