Beauty Bakerie Cinnamon Roll, Royal Tea and Berried Metallic Lip Whips: Review and Swatches
Thursday, February 2, 2017
I've reviewed Beauty Bakerie's Hot Cocoa Lip Whip Set, Neapolitan Eyescream Eyeshadow Palette, and today I'll be reviewing some of Beauty Bakerie's METALLIC Lip Whips. You may remember I was less than impressed with the formula of their Hot Cocoa Set (MATTE Lip Whips). The only one out of the set that I really liked was Ginger Snap. Overall, the formula was DRYing. So I wanted to try their METALLICS. I'm happy to say, I like their metallic lip whips a lot better! They're light on the lips and richly pigmented. As mentioned before (mattes), the metallics also have staying power. You will need a cleansing oil or micellar water to remove these. There are only two negative things I would like to mention about these. They're not moisturizing. You must prep your lips before using these! Your lips should be exfoliated and fully moisturized before application. If you click on my pictures below (enlarge), you'll notice they show every line in your lips. Usually my lips are pretty moisturized, but I've had a super busy week hahaha (so I'm glad that showed up in my pictures). Secondly, BERRIED is not as metallic as the other two! It also dries down differently than swatched on the back of my hand. I had to do a double swatch, because there was such a difference. Despite these quirks, I love all three. After reviewing this company three times, I would suggest reading reviews and analyzing pics before purchasing. Their products can be hit or miss (formula). I SUPER LOVE their packaging! The swirled casing for their lip whips are gorgeous. My lip whips were sent in a bakery box ... "a box of cake". The boxes the lip whips come in say, "nutrition facts 1 sweetie per serving...vegan...no calories...all sweet". Their details are superb. They're even coming out with face setting powder called FLOUR. I love all of that about them! But sometimes I'm disappointed with their formula. Like their MATTES.
