Happy holidays to you and yours!
My makeup look for Christmas and being a holiday host greeting family and friends was a perfect opportunity to try out the makeup I’ve been receiving from subscription boxes such as fabfitfun and ipsy and birchbox.
Last week I had on a lippie from the December fabfitfun box from Manna Kadar.
LUCKY is a beautiful neutral color described as a “nude petal-pink” that claims to take care of 3 steps – it is a primer/moisturizer/lipstain all in one. I’m all for saving time and steps in the beauty routine!
The wand is very very long, and the nib is rather small. Goes on easily in one stroke, no streaking.
There’s not an overpowering scent. Rather pleasant, slightly vanilla. It does condition the lips, they feel soft. The color doesn’t stay long, maybe a couple of hours.
Amazing what lighting and background can do to showing a color? This is the same lippie in different lighting and background.
The LIPLOCKED line is $24.00 (U.S.) each lippie. The pictures online make the colors look ultra shiny and pigmented and creamy — but I had a different experience. Maybe the lip model on their website piled it on several thick coatings?
From the website:
“Manna Kadar’s lip stains are the latest innovation in lip stains. Smooth application that keeps lips hydrated. Pigment lasts for hours. The Lip Locked Collection contains a Lip Gloss, Primer, and Stain all in one.”
It sounds ambitious – my lips stayed soft, the gloss was not goopy but the pigmentation did not last long on me. Within three hours it was gone. And I’m not someone who habitually licks or bites on her lips when she has lipcolor on. So I find this very ambitious but not true for me. However, because it kept my lips soft, and the color is nice, I give it a B. I did like the how-to tips on the website.

Apply the Lip Locked Stain as a lip liner by outlining your lips.This will prevent lip products from feathering or bleeding since this product has a built in primer.
To achieve a more matte finish, simply dab a small amount of my HD Pressed Powder with your finger to your lips.
