Happy National Lipstick Day — Here’s 5 Unique Lipsticks You Might Just Want!

Who would’t love a day dedicated to lipstick? I am a complete lipstick junky and I collect unusual lipstick cases and brands and I wanted to share 5 of my favorites for National Lipstick Day.

Here’s goes! 

Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait

The Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait Exotic Fruit shade reminds me of a shade from the 60’s is a light sherbet pink. It’s also vegan and Hypoallergenic.

Your Best Friend Fall in Love Lipstick 

The packaging so so classy and useful on this one. The lipstick comes in a black tube with a neat trick! When you pull out the lipstick a mirror pops up which I love. The lipstick is a beautiful dark rich berry and one of my favorite shades.

Maison Jacynthe Lipstick in Bordeaux Mate

The lipstick tube is so unique and pretty. The cap of the tube is wood and silver and feel like a quality piece. This lipstick itself is a brick shade that’s a creamy sheer/matte. According to Maison Jacynthe “The candelilla wax allows a gentle application without drying of the lips. The oil of abyssinia allows the enhancement of the color and the long duration.

Kailijumei Flower Jelly Lipstick

The Kailijumei Flower Jelly Lipstick in Flame Red has a plink colored flower and gold flecks encased in a clear jelly lipstick. The packaging is pretty with a metallic red case with a mirror. You pop up the lipstick by pressing on the bottom button of the case.

Covergirl Star Wars The Force Awakens Lipstick

My 12-year-old self would have worn this lipstick day and night as I was an extreme Empire Strikes Back fan back in the 80’s. The No. 50 Dark Purple shade is amazing!

Happy National Lipstick Day!

Kailijumei Flower Jelly Lipstick Review

Today I got my Kailijumei Flower Jelly Lipstick in the mail. I ordered the Flame Red color off of ebay for $11.99 and that included shipping from Singapore. I’m pleasantly surprised at the quality of this lipstick, I was expecting it to feel cheaper. As you can see it has a plu colored flower and gold flecks encased in a clear jelly lipstick.

I’m not sure if this is a fake because I  bought it off of ebay but it feels authentic. The package has a Kailijumei.com QR code on the package and there is a production date and an expiration date.

The only odd thing is that a few words are misspelled on the back and the punctuation and sentence structure is a odd. For example it says…”first from the middle of the lower lip, hit a circle to the insideEvenly, and then coated with lip, Kylie finished the United StatesJelly lipstick, light SIP lips, so that makeup effect lasting.” WHAT???? That is weird.

The packaging is pretty with a metallic red case with a mirror. You pop up the lipstick by pressing on the bottom button of the case.

The lipstick itself is very pretty and has a nice vanilla scent and felt smooth on my skin. I tried it on my arm first and the color turned a light pink. The lipstick is completely smooth and is really quite beautiful to look at.

I could’t get a very good picture of my lips, the lighting was just strange. As you can see it looks very light pink, not Flame Red at all. Not sure if this is because of the way it reacted to my skin or if it’s just a defect. I was a bit nervous putting it on my lips seeing as though I wasn’t sure if it was fake but I didn’t have any bad reactions to it. To me it felt more like a lip gloss that an actual lipstick product.

Overall I think this is a really interesting concept and I’d love to see a company like Tarte to produce a Flower Jelly Lipstick. Not sure I’d wear this one but I love looking at it. It’s quite a neat product to have in my collection.

What’s The Scoop On the Kailijumei Jelly Lipstick?

Apparently the Kailijumei jelly lipstick is hotter than Kylie and Kim put together so I decided to do a little research because I’m old and I want to know what the heck I’m putting on my lips.

Here’s what I know!

The “cool factor” of this clear jelly lipstick is that it’s got a flower embedded in the center which is pretty neat to look at. It reminds me of those floating pool flowers or something from the 70’s, I swear I remember something like this from my childhood.

The other “cool factor” is that the color is supposed to change with your body temperature or Ph level to give you a custom look…hmmmm.

The company is based in China and the lipstick sells for $30 plus shipping which seems really high to me. Ironically you can buy these on ebay for as low as $1.29. WHAT??? Not sure if these are a knock-off or what.

While these look kind of neat I’m a huge skeptic and a bit of a germaphobe and old. I want to buy from trusted well known companies, especially since this is going on my lips! I mean who knows, maybe there’s unicorn hair in there or something.

I’m going to try and get my hands on one to review so stay tuned.

In the mean time have you tried these? Any thoughts? Am I missing something?
