I was hoping to bring you this post on Thursday, but of course my internet connection was down :(
I really love Models Prefer products. Not only are they inexpensive, they also have a great range of colours for every type of skintone.
These 2 MP lip products are their newest offering. I saw them instore and picked up one. After trying it, I went back to Priceline and picked up another.
I've already blogged about my love of their Moisture Lust Lipstick, so I had high expectations of these. Luckily they have even out wow'ed the lipsticks.
Their packaging reminds me of the Revlon Balm Stains. They are thick and chubby, and so easy to hold and apply to your lips.
The outer packaging is coloured similar to what the lip colour is, so it's easy to identify.
It also has the name of the colour on the back and the bottom of the stick.
"Raspberry Ripple" is a gorgeous red raspberry colour.
They're so smooth on your lips, and easy to apply. I can apply these without a mirror and still know that it looks fine (Don't you love a foolproof lip product!).
On the left is two light swatches, while on the right is about 4 heavier swatches. This colour is more of a darker colour and you don't need to build it up as much as you would a baby pink.
The above photo was taken with a flash. You can see that the colour looks really juicy. On the lips, the more you layer the more juicy and lipglossy it looks. If you just apply one or two light layers it isn't as glossy.
And here's "Tutti Frutti"...
The outer packaging is slightly more orange than "Raspberry Ripple."
I didn't notice this when I bought it, but this one is more of a glittery shimmery tint.
It's also a softer colour and if you want a bright lip, then you need more layers. But as you apply more layers, you get a bolder colour but more glitter, so for me it's not an everyday lip colour. But it looks beautiful applied over "Raspberry Ripple" or any other matte or plain lipgloss/lipstick.
Here's a photo with flash, so you can see how much glitter shows up when you do 4 heavier swatches. Underneath is one light swatch. As you can see the colour isn't too obvious, and neither is the glitter.
These lip tints are exactly that. A tint, unlike the Revlon Balm Stains. While they are a tint, I did get about 3-4 hours of wear from them before they disappeared. I like that these don't stain my lips and leave me with patches of colour like the Revlon ones do. These just slowly disappear and leave my lips feeling moisturised. I can even apply these without first applying a plain balm underneath.
Since buying these, I have only touched the MP Moisture Lust Lipsticks twice. I adore the lipsticks, but these lip tints are AMAZING!!! They are a great everyday lip product. I get a beautiful colour with the "Raspberry Ripple" but with only a small amount of effort. It's a great way of having red lips, without having to touch lipstick.
I'll be picking up more of these!!
The best part about these is the price. The lipsticks are $11.99, but these glosses are only $7.99 at Priceline. I'm not 100% sure how many colours there are (as I forgot to take note instore) but I think there's about 7 or 8. There is a light pink, bright pink, nude and a coffee coloured one.
If you want this, get into Priceline asap, because when you purchase these until Monday 20th May, Priceline will donate $1 from the sale to the PANDA charity. PANDA helps support women (including their families) who are suffering from Post and Antenatal Depression.
Will you be picking up these? If you have a review on them, link your review in the comments so I can see the other colours.
