I was super excited to finally receive my first lip whips from Beauty Bakerie! One of my friends introduced me to this black owned brand, so I knew I had to support! I thought I would start out with two lip whips, since they are sold for $20 a pop. Although I loved how they are advertised as 100% smudge proof and the swatches look amazing, I wasn’t comfortable going crazy purchasing all of the colors I loved.
I decided to try out Cranberry Stiletto first. It’s a beautiful deep red! I love a good red lip, so purchasing this shade was a no brainer for me. Since these lippies are matte, I went about my normal process to apply the lip color. First, I exfoliated my lips using a lip exfoliator by e.l.f. Cosmetics. Then, I applied a lip primer by Bite Beauty. I let the lip primer set for about 30 seconds and then I applied the lip whip. I used the doe foot applicator to line my lips with the color and then I filled it in. The liquid to matte formula takes about 30 seconds to fully dry.
Applying my lip color is the last thing I do before walking out the door. After about 5 minutes, my lips felt EXTREMELY dry! I looked at my lips in the mirror and noticed how patchy the color looked. I refreshed the lip color and then it started to peel. I was so upset all day at work because my lips were extremely uncomfortable and I couldn’t change out my lip color because that was the only lipstick I had with me and due to this being 100% smudge proof, you need an oil based lip color remover and I didn’t have that with me. In order to alleviate some of the discomfort, i applied chapstick on top of the color. That helped quite a bit. But I just didn’t feel like I should have had to do that! Overall, I was just completely disappointed in this lipstick.
I’m in the process of trying to figure out some ways to prevent this from happening because the colors are so beautiful and I really want to be able to love this brand!
