Perfect Pink Pout
Need I say more?
Really does it need words?
I don’t think it does…
But I guess I’ll give some anyways.
This is my latest love, a Lipastick Glossy Lip Pen from Eyeko. This one is in Loud Mouth, a hot pink colour, and I bought it online with a few other things. I have done a review of a couple other Eyeko products, such as this Blush Duo and London Lips Lipgloss.
This is like a lip crayon type of product (don’t know why it is called a pen, not inky at all…very creamy actually), but it really surprised me. It was so silky smooth and soft I was really impressed. It is creamy like a chapstick, but has the colour intensity and pigment of a lipstick. It is not dry at all and actually stays like that for most of the wear time. It was still smooth and blendable when I rubbed my lips together even after wearing it for a few hours. The colour did fade over time. but it was so amazingly soft to apply that I enjoyed reapplying throughout the day.
The image below shows how blendable this product is. From the short line I swatched on my hand I could blend it out all the way from my knuckles to back past my wrist. That really proves that this pigmented colour can go a long way, and you can change the intensity of the pink by rubbing some of it off.
I never thought I could be one to wear hot pink lips, I am pretty shy and reserved, and although I love fashion and beauty I am not the type to wear statement making pieces. This however did surprise me. I have been wearing it on and off for a few weeks and love it every time I see myself. In the reflection of the elevator I can’t take my eyes of my lips!
I wore it for a presentation in one of my classes and I felt so empowered! I felt like people listened to what I had to say because it was coming from such a bold looking mouth.
This really makes me feel so pretty when I wear it, maybe because it is such a girly pink colour. Eyeko’s website says this “Rosy pink lips always looks polished and effortless” and I agree. I felt like I looked very stylish and sophisticated, yet still so feminine. And it was effortless, just a simple lip product and my whole entire look changed drastically. It reminded me of a retro look, which I have been sporting with this product lately. Big ringlet curls on my dark hair, liquid black eyeliner, and this hot pink pout.
Anyways, I really really love this product and everything about it. Colour, quality, texture, and more importantly how it makes me feel when I wear it. I know I said that picture didn’t need words, and now I think I rambled, so thanks to anyone who stuck through this post!
