My Thoughts:

I got this from the Makeup Vault set from Perricone MD that they no longer sell, but they still sell this individually. This is one of the products from the line that I have loved since I first used it and have yet to change my mind! It smells AMAZING and is so buttery and creamy! This little tube of wonder instantly became one of my favorite lipsticks and still is because of how flattering the color is for any look, especially the natural look that I prefer to wear, and makes my lips feel amazing even after it’s worn off. I do wish the company would make more colors because I am just so in love with this formula that it would be even more perfect if they had other colors to fit other moods.

Performance/Wear:                          ★/5

As I mentioned, the color is perfect and works with pretty much any look I use it with. It is like a bit of peach with a rosy pink color that’s sheer on my lips and reveals quite a bit of shine. The shine isn’t a concern of mine because most cream lipsticks do that, and this makes my lips feel so amazing the moment it hits my lips and for hours after it’s gone. It can be used as a cream blush, but I am too greedy for using it on my lips, plus I already have the blush that comes in the line so there’s no need for that. It does transfer and can smudge, yet it doesn’t bleed. It wears a lot like the lip gloss, but I can feel a difference between them in the texture when they’re on my lips. I love that it has SPF in it which gives me a bit more peace-of-mind and saves me time from having to wear a lip balm with SPF in it underneath to get that protection. I can’t say that it smooths out the lines in my lips, but that’s not really a concern of mine yet. I mean, I have vertical lines, but I don’t care about correcting them visually; it just isn’t a concern for me. Also, the fact that it enhances the natural rosy color in lips is pretty intriguing and although I have only tried this on a few people, I can vouch for those few trials, this did live up to that expectation. I would love to find some reviews of people with darker skin to see how and if it brings out the natural color in their lips or if it’s all a placebo effect. It feels really cool (not temperature) when applying because it feels like it is actually melting on my lips upon contact. Yet, whatever product is still on the stick that doesn’t touch my lips, isn’t affected by it. I’m assuming that reaction is caused from body heat, but who knows. I did use this consistently for a few months and did notice a healthier look to my lips with them being plumper from being so well-moisturized and my lips didn’t get chapped in between wears because of how long the moisturizing benefits lasted. However, I didn’t notice any anti-aging results as far as a reduction in the lines on my lips or around them that the product came into contact with. It fades evenly so there’s never a concern over feathering or blotchy residual product which is another bonus in my book.

Skin Swatch

Price:                                                   ★/5

Yes, this seems like quite the pricey lipstick and although I may not be the biggest fan of all of Dr. Perricone’s products, this one is worth it. My lips are normally cracked and chapped so bad that you would think I’m on day 2 or 3 without water because my skin is very dry and it needs constant lip balm to keep my lips decent, and this made my lips feel like they were back in high school. Luxury brands are the poster children of quality over quantity and this product fits right in there with it. A little goes a long way for color and moisturizing benefits making this worth every penny.

Packaging:                                          ★/5

How cool is this packaging? I’m sure we’ve all seen the mirrored design before at some point, but I always admire it when I come across it because it gives a sleeker feel to the product. I love that the top is twist-off instead of a top that just pulls off making this a more secure option for travel and daily accompanying. The information on the packaging is very simple and to-the-point, leaving more room for the product to speak for itself without it being overwhelmed by a showy design. I really dig the little imprint on the top when I first opened the tube, but as expected, it disappeared after the 1st use.

Ingredients:

-Suspension Technology: Ensures optimal delivery of active and unified application of pigment and minerals with a breathable second skin effect.
-Non-Chemical Mineral-Based SPF 30 with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide: Protect skin from UVA and UVB rays.
-Neuropeptides: Help to smooth vertical lip lines and address loss of fullness and suppleness.
-Hyaluronic Spheres and Tocotrienols: Add fullness while moisturizing and nourishing.
