JANE IREDALE “LIP ADDICT” LIPSTICK REVIEW & INTERVIEW WITH NOURI FACE & BODY CONCEPTS
The Latest Innovation in Lipsticks.
Make up has changed drastically over the last two years with many new formulas to improve upon the things many of us women cannot do without when preparing ourselves everyday for work or play.
From “miracle” foundations, to High Definition (HD) makeup, and also high grade water resistant mascaras – everything we have known has changed in order to keep up with the latest fashion trends. But what does it really take for a particular makeup item to set itself apart from the multitudes of brands and pretty packages found in department and retail stores all over the world? Short of calling whatever the brand is selling as “the next best thing”, it really comes down to this: Quality and Results.
Today, I’m extremely happy to bring all of you my latest review of a internationally reknown brand of makeup and their latest lipstick that is taking the world by storm. Jane Iredale is known to be the preferred makeup of several A-list Hollywood celebrities like Jessica Alba, Samantha Bullock, Jessica Biel, Megan Fox and Emma Watson. Popular TV show “Glee” reportedly uses Jane Iredale makeup for it’s talented cast during filming. Jane Iredale is also an industry pioneer of “mineral makeup”, focusing on using non harmful ingredients that will achieve the same photo friendly effects as the heavily saturated and lead-lined products that are found in every aisle of any makeup store.
Jane Iredale has just recently released it’s immensely popular “Lip Addict” lipsticks to Asia in 10 different beautiful shades. Now what exactly is so special about it? The “Lip Addict” range promises to give the same plump and full bodied effect of having lip injections- WITHOUT having to be pricked by a surgical syringe. Formulated by Dermatologists using all natural and safe ingredients in New York labs, “Lip Addict” helps to heal and prevent lip lines, cracks and wrinkles caused by dehydration, smoking and natural aging.
Touted to bring instant results upon the first application, lips will seem plumper and moist without the oily and greasy sensation that puts many of us off from ever using a particular lipstick ever again( you only need to look at your makeup drawers at home to know what I mean). “Lip Addict” by Jane Iredale contains Vitamins ‘C’, ‘E’ & ‘K’ which are vital to our body for healing, regeneration and a healthy glow. It’s good to have a product which will not only protect our lips over long term usage, but not cause any harmful side effects like darkening and spots.
Jane Iredale in Singapore
Jane Iredale products have been around in Singapore for quite awhile now, but not sold in most retail outlets due to it’s more exclusive nature and target market. Many fashionistas and socialites are surely familiar with the brand name by now, but for the average girls like myself and many others, I’m extremely thrilled that my friend fellow beauty enthusiast – Valerie De costa, of Nouri Face & Body Concepts carries this wonderful brand and the latest series of mineral makeup goodies!
Hence, when I was asked by Valerie if I’d be interested in trying out the latest lip treats, I was very excited and agreed to do this review and interview for all my readers.
Valerie from Nouri Face & Body Concepts also wearing Lip Addict Color ”Mon Cherie”
Valerie provided me 3 shades of the “Lip Addict” range, and a “extra surprise” which I only was aware of upon opening up the parcel ( all items & shades were selected randomly by Valerie for me to make it a fair and honest review). What I received was :
- Lip Addict in Glamour
- Lip Addict in Innocence
- Lip Addict in Mon Cherie
- PurePressed Based Mineral Foundation SPF 20
Bless Nouri Face and Body Concepts for sending me not just the gorgeous lipstick for review but an extra surprise gift with the Mineral Foundation Base.
I really love how flexible the tip of the applicator and that I can bent it all the way to 90 degrees. The tip felt bouncy on my lips making it so easy to apply the lip gloss on.
First colour I tried out was Lip Addict Glamour which has such a nice shade of pink that will suit any person.
Followed by Lip Addict Innocence which is a lighter shade of cute pink for those who like to look fun and sweet. Like the colour said, you will look get that innocence look with this lip colour. 🙂
Lastly, I it’s the Lip Addict Mon Cherie which is more towards the light red tone with a slight hint of orange. This colour is very suitable for a more sexy and seductress look. If you have fair skin, this colour will definitely look awesome on you. Or throw on a black dress with this lipstick to stand out from the crowd.
Other than loving the great colours available and how it helps to moisturise my lips while preventing lip lines, cracks and wrinkles, you will be amazed that this lip gloss actually smells great, taste sweet and it makes your lips minty the whole time.
I like the minty feeling on my lips as it makes me feel fresh. I have the tendency to lick and bite my lips often so the very light sweetness seriously made the lip gloss so ADDICTIVE! Now I understand this is probably why the name is Lip Addict.
I just kept re-applying it again and again subconsiously more than what I do with regular lipstick and lip gloss.
From the photos above you can see this lip gloss really plump up my lips. One of the best lip gloss I had tried before.
Seeing the results from the latest range from Jane Iredale, I decided to speak more to Valerie about the items and her own thoughts so we can get a glimpse of what to really expect from buying such a product without watching a brand commercial.
J: Val, it’s very good to have you back on my blog. Thank you for the “Lip Addict” items and letting me review them,what can you tell us about “lip addict” that we don’t already know yet?
V: Hi Jessie, it’s great to be back and we definitely need to catch up really soon.
It’s my pleasure to provide the “lip addict” range to you, as you were the first person that came to mind after the first batch I ordered for displaying in my shop SOLD OUT on the very same day it arrived.
What happened was that I had a few tester sets, and some clients tried it on themselves. And about a week later when the display quantity arrived, one client snapped up every single shade for herself and her sister. And soon after I posted it on the Nourifbc Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/
Everyone that has tried it on, has gotten at least one for themselves immediately. The effect and quality can be felt almost the very second you finish applying the lipstick. I myself is wearing it today ( Lip Addict Mon Cherie) together with the Mineral press foundation also from Jane Iredale.
J: Sounds like it really is a hot product as I expected it to be when I tried it on.
Do you think “Lip Addict” will be a time lasting series or just a fad like many makeup trends we are seeing now?
V: In my honest opinion, “Lip Addict” is doing so well overseas and everywhere else because it really solves a pain point of many women of all ages out there. The young girls want movie star looks, but without the pain and cost of having surgical lip injections. The working age ladies want something that looks good for work and after work hours, something that lasts the entire day and does not cause discomfort such as a greasy effect. And for older women with cracked or wrinkle lines on their lips, the “lip addict” series acts as an instant cover up with literally no hassle.
So I do believe that where there is a real demand for it, the “lip addict” range is not only here to stay for a long time, but it will be one of 2015’s absolute must-haves for many women in Asia, due to climate’s effects on our skin and lips.
J: Those indeed are very interesting points. You mentioned that you yourself use the Jane Iredale products and I have seen your Facebook page selfies too. Your skin looks really good! Can you tell us which makeup products you use, and why?
V: Thank you for the compliment! I have to put my best efforts to look good as I am in the beauty industry after all. But I can tell you that I never go out without these things in my bag:
Pure Pressed Mineral Foundation in Golden Glow
Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Pure Pressed Blusher in Whisper
I am absolutely going to add Lip addict lip injection lipsticks to my bag once more stocks arrive( I have to ensure my customers get theirs first). I’m not shamelessly endorsing it, but it really works for me and i’m in love with it!
J: Val, thank you so much for your time and the interesting information for my readers.
I look forward to meeting up with you again really soon for some relaxation.
V: Thank you for having me,definitely my pleasure, Jessie. Yes, we will meet up again very soon for sure.
