2 in 1 Lipstick & Lip Gloss swatch

April 20, 2012

Let me start this post by sharing with you a little secret.
I don't usually buy fancy or expensive cosmetic brands. Call me cheap, but I just can't spend so much money on a product just because it's a well known fancy brand. Maybe that's because I rarely use makeup, but I don't have a problem using a good quality unknown brands as long as they do the job. Sometimes it's just a bad habit to buy tons of cheap stuff and then I'm stuck with it and don't use it because it's not as good as I first thought or I just don't love the color.

I was tempted to buy this 2 in1 Lipstick & Lip Gloss that looks like a MAC product, but the seller didn't mention anywhere the brand, and I hardly doubt that a real MAC product will cost as low as $3. Frankly I don't care if it's MAC or not, I just love the color and the price was great. I would have bought it even if it wasn't branded at all.
Usually when purchasing online, it's really hard to tell the real color and most of you who shop online probably already know that the pictures aren't the real deal and there is almost always a huge color difference between the pictures on site and the product in real life.

Few days ago I received this product and was quite surprised. It looks like a good quality product, still don't know if it's real or not because I don't have nothing to compare it to, but I like it.
Surprisingly the lip gloss smells really nice, it has fresh lemony scent, and the lipstick smells like.. well... lipstick :)
I chose color #5 but I think each seller has their own numbering system so I wouldn't count on that. I would describe its as a peachy pink. It's overall size is 10.5 cm.

The lipstick looks to be in a full size, but the lip gloss is place in much smaller container (about 3.5 cm). It's really hard to get a good amount of gloss on that stick. It took me more than 10 times to apply it evenly on the lips.

What I do like about this double lipstick / lip gloss is that it's combined all in one product and it gives you few combinations of how to wear it.
There are 3 options of wearing this: lip gloss only, lipstick only, and the combination of lip gloss on top of the lipstick.

Nude lips
Lip gloss only
Lipstick only
Lipstick with lip gloss

If you like this product you can search ebay for "2 in 1 Lipstick Lip Gloss". You should be able to purchase it for $3 or less.
Overall I'm really happy with this lipstick & lip gloss. It was super cheap, has a great color and.. It's cheap, yeah! I just ordered another one. Have no idea what color it would actually be but I think I will like it too :)
If you have any idea if it's real or fake, please share it with me - I'm really curious.

  3. I'm totally a little lesbian for you lips. Purrty!

  4. הגוון מהמם, אך נראה שהוא לא אטום לגמרי על השפתיים. האם הולא לחותי או מייבש? בד"כ לא הייתי מצפה להרבה משפתון במחיר של "באזר". השפתיים והתמונות מאוד יפות :)

    1. הייתי מסכימה שהוא לא אטום לחלוטין, ולדעתי כן יש בו לחות, אבל אני לא נוהגת לשים שפתון לכן קשה לי להגיד את זה בלב שלם.
      מה שכן אני מאוד מרוצה מהמוצר ומהמחיר. :)
      תודה אפרת :)

  5. Definitely not MAC, but the color looks lovely <3 you're lucky, usually fake makeup products are just crappy.
    I'm actually tempted...

    1. I guess they are ok :) I've bought so many that I don't know what to do with them all :)
