Hello dears, how are you?
I've been stalking Instagram a lot for the Menow Long Lasting lip glosses because they have 36 shades in the collection and most of these are dupes for Lime Crime Velvetines and/or the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks.
I only got three so far but I will surely be buying more, even though not all three were hits.
The colours I got are #35, #33 – dupe for Lime Crime Wicked, and the infamous #18 – dupe for Lime Crime Cashmere.
Let's look at these products:
Menow Long Lasting Lip Glosses Review
Very cute transparent plastic tube with "lace" graphic detailing, the number is written on the cap that holds the applicator.
Thick consistency that applies really well and easy. Because of the matte finish they are quite drying though, so you have to hydrate thoroughly before applying them.
Also, until they dry off, they are a bit sticky.
Highly pigmented, these apply opaque with one coat!
How long lasting are they?
Let me just say that these are so hard to take off! You will need an oil based makeup remover or olive oil to do it, otherwise they won't budge.
They surely last all day long, but because they are dry, you'll probably need to put a lip balm on top from time to time, I know I do that.
This nude shade is an amazing dupe for Lime Crime Cashmere / DOC Stone. It's surely my fave out of them.
This shade is an identical dupe for LC Wicked. It's a bold maroon with red undertones and it looks so elegant on the lips!
At the beginning of the post I told you that not all of these were hits. Sadly, this gorgeous bright pink is incredibly sticky and hard to apply.
It leaves patches, it spreads like it's not evenly mixed in the tube and it took forever to get a decent application. I love the shade but I won't be using it unless I have 15 minutes on my hands just for applying it.
All in all the Menow Long Lasting glosses are a must have if you are looking to dupe some high end matte lip colours. I will get more shades from this collection of beauty products soon, but in the mean time you can leave me your suggestions!
Do you have any of them? Which should I buy next?
Oh, and if you'd like to see lip swatches check out my Instagram! I try to post daily and I always try on my new purchases on there.
See you later babes, have a great day and a wonderful week to come.
