While browsing the THEFACESHOP store for trendy new items, I've tried and tested much of the makeup collection but the Collagen Ampoule Lipstick is by far my favorite! The brand has excelled to new levels with these luxurious, show-stopping pigments and with 16 brilliant shades to choose from, there is something for everyone!
It may be difficult to choose just one but the collection mainly consists of pink, coral, orange, and red with a mix of subtle tones, deep vivid hues with darker finishes and of course bright, bold color for a pop of summer all year round. Since I love rich, glamorous tones, I couldn’t resist the beautiful red hues and the deep wine called Blood Red is perfect for fall!
The formula is what really sold me because the lipsticks glide on smooth and creamy with full-coverage, intense color pay-off and a luminous satin finish. The consistency is lightweight, velvety and quite moisturizing so lips stay soft and healthy. The mild fruity scent smells great and the infusion of macadamia seed oil and flower extracts nourish and soothe parched skin.
As an added bonus the formula also contains a blend of anti-aging ingredients that help reduce the appearance of fine lines so lips may appear youthful and plump. In terms of staying power, the pigment holds up for hours of smudge-proof wear but like most lipstick they do fade during meals and transfer with contact. The quality reminds me of high-end lipsticks and the plush comfort and glistening layers of hydration is something I think everyone will enjoy.
If you examine some of the shades closely you will notice micro-fine shimmer particles that help create layers of vibrant radiance but once applied you can’t see or feel the fragments which I love!
