I think Maquillage make some of the best lipsticks and glosses around..I really do.
I bought five colours from the New Climax colours – this one being by far my favourite – RS755:
It’s a cool toned rose with shimmers.
The tube is unusal as it looks like a lipstick, you it actually plastic, so you swivel it and the colour comes out.
The thing is – I rarely finish any make up because I have so many items I rotate them all. I must have used this baby – I don’t know, thirteen times? I never stick to any one colour so imagine my shock when I was applying the other day and “click – click” – it had run out!
I gave it a moment to calm down and get a grip, and clicked again. Had I broken it? Had I been applying it in my sleep. Nope. This gloss which had cost me in the region of £11 had ran out in two months and a few clicks.
I particuraly love this shade, so I may repurchase…but as for the other colours I own, nope, I don’t think it’s very good value. It also seems a bit of a waste throwing the packaging away (might give it to the lil lady to play with).
Now if this colour came in a lipstick form, it would last for years. Maybe what I need to do is to scrape any remains and hunt down the perfect nude-rose-pink?
I am sure it would have to be a Japanese brand that could do a good dupe though – when I think of my Nars and MAC colours they are always flatter than my Japanese lipsticks.
*ding* – don’t Prescriptives do a colour blend service? *makes a date in the diary*….
** A lovely MUAer informed me that my tube is probably faulty because what should happen is that the tube becomes white as the gloss is pushed out. I have twisted, kicked and squeezed this tube but no more colour will come out so its a no-no for me. 🙁 )
