It was an exciting weekend, readers (which means an exciting week!). If you hadn’t heard already, Beaute Cosmetics has added another product to their lineup: a “liquid lipstick” (a la Laura Mercier Lip Velvets or Dior Creme de Gloss).
They’re called Weightless Lip Cremes, and “weightless” is absolutely right. These offer full coverage in an incredibly lightweight lipgloss form. I think they’re meant to be applied to bare lips, and because of their lightness, they never completely set.
When you first put these on, you’ll probably get that “line” (the collection of gloss at the inside of your lip) — take a q-tip and roll it over the inside of your lips to clean up the excess product there. I’d also recommend tapping your finger over your lips to blur any hard edges and help the product blend into your skin. After 2-3 minutes, they do become a little less slippery.
Weightless Lip Cremes are $26 Canadian (approximately $23 U.S. at the moment), but the handsome folks at Beaute have agreed to reactivate the karlasugar code, for 10% off your order! (Good through September 15.)
