Alexa is only 21, but she told me she’s been working on her line since she was 16-years-old. She started in makeup artistry when she was just 13-years-old and told me this was her destiny. “In high school I knew school wasn’t for me,” she said.
I really respect this. I had my first newspaper article published when I was 15. I understand that when you are so passionate about what you want to do, you throw yourself into it!
Alexa and I after I interviewed her and snapped some pics:
Alexa has a variety of products in her line from liquid blush and eye shadow to Perfect Lips Lipstick, which was the product I was drawn to! Alexa told me that all of her lipsticks are named after people in her family, and have meaning to her. She said they’re named after people “close to my heart,” and she takes a lot of pride in that!
I asked Alexa what she would recommend for me from her line, and when she immediately picked the Perfect Lips color Rose, I was sold. I purchased it and tried it last week!
Here’s how it looked on me!
Lip swatch, with flash:
I thought it reminded me of a Jesse’s Girl Lipstick, in Fabula, that I own. So I did a side by side comparison.
After looking at them on my hand, Rose definitely has more blue undertones, and seems to be a slightly different rose hue than Fabula. They look similar, but they are different.
Perfect Lips comes in a about a dozen shades, and retails for $12.99 on the Alexa Persico site here.
Alexa Persico Cosmetics is still celebrating IMATS NYC by offering free shipping on orders with the promo code IMATS. I’m not sure how long this will last!
I am curious to try the Lip Velour product, and Liquid Blush.
What do you think of Rose? Does this brand pique your interest? Do you like discovering new brands and learning their stories like I do?! I’d love to hear from you!
