Part I of the trilogy. Enjoy~
I’ve recently realized that I review a lot of lip products on this blog. Hmm…
I thought I felt an epiphanic moment coming on there, but now it’s gone.
Diandra Super Moist Hydrating Lipstick comes in a classic-looking, square, navy blue container. With a gold band ’round the middle! It clicks securely shut, with just a faint trace of that generic lipstick scent. You know the one I’m talking about…
The formula is, well, not exactly super-moist. But it’s not drying either, and glides onto my lips smoothly. Here it is in Pink Champagne:
As you can see, the color is quite pigmented and opaque. Pink Champagne is a raspberry-rose pink shimmer on the lips. Quite pretty, yeah?
Ok, now the bad. The color starts out looking nice and even, but as time goes on, it starts to slowly creep towards the edges of my lips. After 4-5 hours, I end up with a ring of color on the borders of my lips, so it looks like I’ve applied lipliner, and just stopped there. Not the most attractive thing. Thankfully, the color never actually goes outside of my liplines, but having to constantly blot the edges of my lips to ward against color buildup is annoying, to say the least.
Thumbs up for the gorgeous color and nice glide, but major thumbs down for the creeping. Would I pay $15 for this lipstick? Sorry, but no.

My rating: B-
So how’s everyone’s weekend going? I took a quick trick to CVS today in search of those beautiful Milani Jewels FX polishes, but alas, they had already been cleaned out. It’s like Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure all over again.
