Wow, it’s been another few weeks since I posted! Life was busy for a bit and it’s sometimes a challenge for me to do a post, but I do enjoy making them! Plus I now have so many holo lip products I want to share my thoughts on them with y’all.
You know something is trendy when it’s at H&M because I have a holographic lipstick by them. That’s right, a lipstick! Hennes & Mauritz did also make holo lip glosses (and they will be reviewed), but they wanted to be even trendier and made it in solid form.
It only comes in one shade and the shade doesn’t have a name. It’s a pinky, champagne color and great for people who wear their makeup more natural.
I tried to take a video of me moving my head around to show the color-shift, but my hand isn’t very steady and I might look into getting a tripod. Also, a really simple video editing software. I kept having to look at the camera to make sure I was hitting the “Stop Recording” button and I thought I looked dumb whenever I had to so I’d like to edit that bit out. I guess this is sort of a “look behind the curtain” into my process… which isn’t really a process.
But I hope what you can see is that it’s very iridescent. I didn’t layer it over another lipstick color because it’s I think it’s meant to be worn on it’s own. The coverage is also a little shear even after going over my lower lip several times.
I normally would include a link for the product, but this is no longer offered on H&M’s website.
I would like to layer a holographic lip topper over it to see what it looks like and I’ll share pictures then!
Viscosity: It’s a lipstick so…self-explanatory? It feels fine on the lips. It has a creamy consistency so it came off easily. Wouldn’t say it’s a long-lasting formula (but what lip product really is?)
Taste/Smell: No taste and there’s a very slight woodsy smell.
