Christmas came early for me when I received this from VMV Hypoallergenics.
The Mistle Glow Gift Set (USD$35) contains the Skintelligent Beauty Glitz Lipstick in Drama Queen (USD$24) and the Ooh-La-Lash! Voluminizing Mascara (USD$23).
Let's first take a look at the mascara. I love my mascara because I think it is what really helps to open my eyes, aside from eyeliner because I have hooded eyelids. That means my eyelid folds over my lashes/lash line.
This is how lashes look like after applying the mascara. I've already curled my lashes before hand. Overall, I find the formula pretty nice. It's hardly clumpy, it goes on nice and smooth, combing through almost every single lash. The only negative I have about this product is that it doesn't seem to hold the curl very well, my lashes will droop down after awhile. But my mum loves this mascara (especially the wand, cos she likes them straight).
And next, we have the lipstick. I've never tried a lipstick in this shade before. Basically, I like my lips naturally pink and so, I only use my favourite lip balm (even during shoots). But, I've seen how the (right) red lipstick shade can flatter one's features and skin tone, so I've been trying to search for a red lipstick that I can pull off. And this gift set just came at the right time.
And how it looks like after. Basically, I feel like this shade is perfect for me, and I believe, it will suit everyone too. It's not a bright kind of red, so it makes it a good everyday lipstick if you want some visible colour on your lips instead of the natural/my-lips-but-better kinda shade.
Thank you VMV Hypoallergenics for sending me this. Here's wishing a very Happy New Year to the team at VMV! :)
