MeMeMe – Lip Glide (Playful Peach)

Front

Online Description:

Lip Glide’s chunky pencil design offers optimum control & precision upon application.

The pencil gives unbelievable impact, wearability & long-lasting effects – welcome to MeMeMe’s new generation of matte lip colour.

Formulated with a matte-velvet finish Lip Glide offers ultra-high pigment for bold, statement lips! Lip Glide has been designed with the just-perfect thickness to the pencil and tip to allow an effortless & precise application.

No MeMeMe products are tested on animals.

APPLICATION:

Lip Glide has been designed to allow for the most precise and effortless application.

The pencil is at the perfect width for optimum control – start by lining the lips with the Lip Glide, starting at each corner and following the natural line of the lips (avoid applying color outside of the lip line as this creates an unnatural appearance).

Once the lip is lined, start at the centre of the upper and lower lip and work your way to each corner of the mouth, filling in all lip color.

 

My Thoughts:

I acquired this great lippie from my Glossybox subscription as a full-size product and it has some good aspects as well with it’s negative ones. I prefer getting makeup products above others from Glossybox, and getting this made my day! The size is perfect for travel and compliments every skin tone. I want to love this product so bad, but I won’t repurchase it unless the company repackages it. Luckily, there isn’t a scent to it, which makes it that much closer to being a contender in my favorites list when the company repackages it!

*Playful Peach is an opaque, bright coral color that’s perfect for daytime looks, especially in the spring and summer.

Performance/Wear:                          ★/5

Performance-wise, this is a great lip product from its ultra-creamy consistency to its generous pigment. I love how flattering the peach is on my skin, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try this on any clients with darker skin because of how fast it has to be sharpened through. Corals/peaches are pretty much my favorite color when it comes to makeup and since this falls into that category, it had quite a bit of expectations to cover before I gave it my stamp of approval to repurchase. The color is very opaque, so there’s no need to worry about it looking streaky from it being sheer in any way. Another thing I loved about this was how moisturized it left my lips all day! I don’t need to wear lip balm under this because it seems to take care of my lips just fine while I’m wearing it, but only while I wear it. I have yet to notice any moisturizing results after I removed it so I’m assuming it’s just a superficial moisturizer instead of a penetrating one. I love that it is velvet like the Ciate liquid matte lipstick, but I prefer the other one because of its packaging. The texture is so smooth that it just glides on the lips (hence the name 😉) without any tugging on my skin or scratching from the product being too dry. The only time I have experienced scratching is from the wood from the pencil itself when the tip from the cream gets too low. On a side note, this color can also double as a cream blush if you’re in a pinch or need to bring multi-purpose products for travel to save space.

Price:                                                   ★/5

For the quality of the product INSIDE the wood pencil, the price is decent, but because it comes in such a miserable package, I can’t justify repurchasing it because it’s just too much of a headache to constantly be sharpening this.

Packaging:                                          ★/5

Anyone who’s read any of my reviews on products that require sharpening are not surprised by the low rating of this one. This lipstick is a great example of how much product gets wasted when we have to sharpen the end to get more product out. What happens is with every shaving, there is a slice of product that goes right into the trash with it, which in turn, is tossing your hard-earned money into the trash. I think this product would make my favorites list and I would end up buying all the colors in the collection because they’re so amazing, but the packaging is a deal-breaker for me.
