Before Christmas I introduced Serpentine Beauty by featuring all of the Bold Lip Glazes and today you’ll get a sneak peek at the new Luxe Crème Lipstick Collection before it officially launches! While this up-and-coming Canadian brand puts the finishing touches on their website and packaging, let's sit back and marvel at these luxurious pigments that will surely leave their mark on the makeup community.
Designed to promote confidence and produce professional results, the new range showcases 10 brilliant shades with half the spectrum catering to neutral lovers and the other half consisting of rich, scintillating hues in a variety of bright and deep undertones.
The packaging is chic and elegant with a push-button top to release the lipstick from its capsule. Some of the inner tubes are a bit stiff in the cap and don’t always pop out all the way but the secure closure ensures that they won’t open in your purse.
If you are on the hunt for spectacular, pouty lip color without sacrificing comfort then look no further! These hues are vivid and pure for optimum pigmentation and there is just enough creaminess to lock in moisture and prevent dryness without bleeding or feathering. The satin finish will satisfy both matte fanatics and shine lovers since it falls somewhere in-between with a solid base and a hint of luminous sheen for eye-catching radiance.
Most of these shades last longer than your average lipstick because the weightless color adheres well and fades gradually without smudging. Applying the pigment sparingly gives you a lighter stain and layering allows you to boldly enhance the color for full-coverage saturation. The sweet vanilla scent is pleasantly mild and the formula is enriched with Vitamin C, Jojoba and conditioning Shea Butter to keep lips supple, smooth and nourished.
The variation of color is not extensive but it is classic and flattering so there is something for all skin tones. I don’t wear nude hues very often but surprisingly these all work for me. On my complexion the most flesh tone shade is Nude Awakening and my favorite neutral with its beautiful pink-coral undertone is Cheeky Minx. Among the deeper hues I tend to favor Code Red which is very Hollywood glam and Red Reaper which caters to my vampy side with a stunning wash of sultry wine. As far as pinks go I think many of you will love the shade Koúkla because the brightness is balanced with a blue undertone that makes it very wearable.
The quality of these beautiful lipsticks is on-par with popular high-end brands and they retail for $28.00 each at serpentinebeauty.com.
