Disclaimer: I bought this.
I’ve wanted to try one of the Younique Splash Liquid Lipsticks since they came out, so armed with a half-off discount, I recently picked one up in the shade Sentimental.
Younique uses words like “silky” and “smooth” when referring to the Splash formula, and they are spot on.This lippie is a nice, pigmented, mousse texture that really does feel “silky” on the lips, and feels hydrating. It’s not a matte finish, but that’s OK. While I love when lipsticks don’t transfer to my coffee cup, it’s not a must-have feature for me!
The wax-free formula translated to no feathering. As I get older, this becomes more and more of an issue with my lipsticks, and while I’m all for using an invisible liner or primer, it’s nice when I don’t have to.
There are 10 different colors, including a Navy shade. There are no oil, parabens, alcohol or fragrance in Splash lipsticks. These retail for $27 and you can buy them through your Younique consultant.
So here’s how I wore it. I applied it around 7:30 a.m.
I ate lunch around 11:30 a.m. (yes, I’m lame, what can I say!) and this did not budge. It did spread out a bit on the outside of my lower lip, but that’s because I “drew” my lip line out a bit. While the color was still strong and not even worn in the middle, my lips felt moisturized by not moist. I didn’t reapply; here are my lips at 2 p.m. that afternoon:
Sorry for the poor lighting! But I was really impressed with the staying power of this lipstick!
While these are nice, I balk a little at the $27 price tag, but know that when a friend has a Younique party, this is probably what I’m going to get in support of her get together.
Have you tried this lip line from Younique? What are your thoughts?
