Review: J.Lynne Cosmetics Part 1

I decided to break the review down into 2 parts since I haven't used all the products yet. This post will review the Ultra Intensity Eyeliner and the Lip Creams.

**Don't forget to visit their website! J.Lynne Cosmetics**


Ultra Intensity Eyeliner
COST: Prices may vary depending on the size of the jar. Full size is $8.
MEETS EXPECTATIONS: 4 out of 5
OVERALL RATING: 4 out of 5
WOULD I USE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN? Yes

PROS:
Variety of colors to choose from
Easy to apply
Very pigmented, even when applied dry
Goes on smooth like liquid

CONS:
I didn't get to try their Eyeliner Sealant which is ideal for applying it to your eyes wet but as far as using water and mixing medium, it's not waterproof or smudgeproof.
Packaging may be a little messy for some since it is in powder form.

OVERALL:
I really like this product. I like the concept of having powder as fine as loose eyeshadow, but when applied wet, it really does turn into a liquid eyeliner! That's what amazed me the most. I love the colors especially. My favorites would definitely have to be Drama Queen, Mistress, and Vamp. Also, as a reminder Vamp is just black so if you're a definite black eyeliner user and would like to try something different, try it out!

APPLICATION TIPS:
I suggest mixing a small amount of the mineral eyeliner powder and your choice of liquid to create the consistency you want. That way you don't have to keep dipping your brush into the powder 2 or 3 different times since it may waste product faster.
An angled brush or an eyeliner brush will work well for application. I used MAC 266.

but it comes off really vibrant on your eyes)

SMOOTH COLOR LIP CREAM
COST: Original price is $6 but it's on sale for $4.80
MEETS EXPECTATIONS: 4 out of 5
OVERALL: 4 out of 5
WOULD I PURCHASE AGAIN? Yes

PROS:
Comes in a variety of colors
The consistency of it is like lip balm/chapstick
Feels moisturizing on the lips
Enhances your natural lip color almost like a tinted lip balm.
It's organic!

CONS:
It has a subtle orange scent to it which I don't really have a big problem with but I'm not to keen on strong scented lip products.

OVERALL:
This is something I would definitely throw in my purse or makeup bag when I'm on the go. Typically when I apply lip products, I moisturize my lips first and then I apply whatever lipstick or lipgloss I choose. But with this, you basically get 2 for the price of 1! I like that it enhances your natural lip color so when you're just looking for a moisturizer for your lips this will definitely do the trick as well as adding a nice tint.
