Review – Me Now Kiss Proof Soft Lipstick

01-1
Some of you may have seen my previous reviews on the Me Now Long Lasting Lipglosses and the Magical Halo versions but today I’m here to review another product from the Me Now range.  I decided to pick up some of the Kiss Proof Soft Lipsticks to try in hopes that they’d be a great budget option like the lip glosses are.  Well to cut to the chase – they’re just terrible!  If you’d like to find out how much these failed, keep reading!

Initially I bought these from Aliexpress, thinking they were the lip liners but just decided to roll with the fact that they’re actually just pencil lipsticks (i.e fatter lip liners anyway).  I was impressed by the fact that they had their own boxes and paper insert, which had no valuable information (no ingredient list or anything), it actually referenced a completely different product!  Anyway, onto the swatches.

Shade #9

So when I first applied this I thought it didn’t look too bad, then it proceeded to settle into every single line and accentuate any bit of texture on my lips.  If you zoom in, my top lip looks like it has goosebumps.  The shade is lovely but this formula is drier than the Sahara desert.  It probably is kiss proof but I don’t want to keep this product on my lips long enough to find out…

Shade #7

A much nicer shade which doesn’t match its packaging at all.  It has a lovely pearly rose sheen but continues to be super dry.  This shade is more subtle when it comes to highlighting your lips texture.  Easily the best of the 3 however still not a great product sadly, there are just way too many alternatives that are much more hydrating and comfortable to wear.

Shade #3

What even is this?  Are you trying Me Now? This shade is TERRIBLE, I’m sure it speaks for itself in the photos.  This is my 3rd attempt to try and get a streak-free application (I tried to paint it on, I tried a lip balm and a lip primer).  This is extremely drying and feels like you’re rubbing gravel onto your lips, it’s essentially a lip exfoliator with additional red colouring.

Anyway, thanks for reading, now you can save yourself the 99 cents and instead buy a flake bar which will be much more satisfying than these dodgy lip crayons!
