- "So to my surprise this Lip is actually super comfortable. My lips never looked dry or cracked (usually they do with liquid lips). I loved the ruby color. Definitely not a true red more of like a cranberry but so so pretty. Super excited to be a part of this voxbox!" in 20 reviews
I know strange colors is the point of this line, but I found the smokey jade to be really odd and definitely NOT wearable. Gonna keep it around until Halloween to see if it's usable, but even then I don't think I'm daring enough to wear it on a normal basis... and the color just completely washed me out and looked awful. Might work for some people.
Let me start off by saying the product is misleading. These lipsticks are anything but matte, and in fact have a creamy, almost glossy finish that doesn't dry, but the color pigment in the red is beautiful and doesn't get patchy. However, because the lipstick doesn't dry to a matte finish, it kept coming off on silverware and cup edges. Super cute. The red was easy to apply once I used a lip liner, and again was beautiful, but not matte. It even flattered my skin tone and I'm a natural redhead.
Smoky Jade was a bit.. difficult. The shade itself is gorgeous, and it didn't make me look too dead, which was a surprise because I have green/yellow undertones, but the application was terrible. For some reason, it is way less pigmented so I had to apply several coats. After just a few minutes, it began to get patchy and cling to every crease in the lip. I had absolutely no idea what lip liner to use with it, so I didn't, and it definitely bled.
The colors are beautiful, but the name is misleading. I'll continue wearing Cruel Ruby nonetheless, but Smoky Jade won't see much use.
I would recommend! I got these on a deal at Rite Aid buy one get one half off they switch like every other day so be on the lookout for it on sale!
