I have to admit from the beginning that I am not a makeup guru. I am a novice that likes to play with makeup creating simple daily looks. All my knowledge comes from watching YouTube videos and following makeup experts. I do have a special place in my heart for lipsticks. There is something magical about them. A single swipe of lipstick adds dimension, radiance, and excitement to any look.
Because of my lipstick passion, I love to explore new brands and experiment with fresh colors and textures. After watching another makeup tutorial on YouTube, I decided to research a new-to-me brand: Lisa Eldridge.
Lisa's Short Bio
Lisa has started her career in the late 1990s. She has quickly become the world's leading makeup artist because of her expert eye for colors, textures, and trends. She has earned high praises from her fellow artists as well as designers, photographers, and editors.
I decided to order a few shades of Lisa's Luxuriously Lucent Lip Colour Lipsticks: Kitten Mischief and Love of My Life. The lipstick retails for about $36. Not cheap, but I wanted to give it a try. I also ordered Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss: Delilah. The gloss retails for about $25.
I was eagerly waiting for my package to arrive as soon as I placed the order. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I received my order within a few days. All the products were carefully wrapped and expertly packaged.
Trying On Lipstick
I could not wait for another second and swatched all three items right away. The Lucent Lipsticks glided on perfectly; it felt rich and delicious. The colors were vibrant, saturated, and complimentary to my skin color. I then tried the Dalilah Gloss; it did not disappoint either. The gloss was a deep cool pink color with a fantastic non-sticky texture.
My first impression was that Lisa's products were of high quality. I could see that Lisa's team put a lot of thought into creating these fantastic shades and textures. I did not feel like I wasted my money, which is an essential point for me.
By now, I have had Lisa's products for about a month, and I have a few additional thoughts on these products.
I do have to repeat myself and say that Lisa's products are of fantastic quality. The lipsticks wear very well, feel delicious on the lips, and are full of pigment. I love to wear all three products with my simple everyday makeup looks.
But as with any lipstick, these do fade as I wear them throughout the day. There is one trick that I do to prolong lip color longevity. I line and fill in my lips with a matching lip pencil. I paired Love Of My Life lipstick with Patrick Ta's Lip Crayon - She's Hard To Get. And I paired Kitten Mischief with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat - Pillow Talk.
Overall I will give Lisa's lipsticks five out of five. I believe that her products are worth the price tag. The lipsticks are fabulous, luscious, and full of pigment; they are easy to wear and apply. And the colors are perfect for simple everyday looks, but you can also wear them with glam makeup.
I will be on the lookout for fresh colors and products! I cannot wait for what she does next.
