Review and Swatches - Makeup Geek Lipsticks

Hello, everyone! Hope you're all doing spectacular. I'm here today with a review (and swatches, of course) of the new Makeup Geek lipsticks! I was very excited to try these out after seeing Marlena talk about them on YouTube, and reading many stellar reviews from some of my favorite bloggers. As you might already know, I am a big lover of their eyeshadows, so if you wanna know if I feel the same way about the MUG lipsticks, then keep on reading to find out!

 Let's start off by stating that Makeup Geek's lipsticks are cruelty-free. They do not test on animals.They are also gluten-free. Yay! These lipsticks are unbelievably smooth, creamy and highly pigmented. They sort of have a lip-balm-like feeling to them. My lips have a tendency to be dry, and they loved to be slathered with these lipsticks; definitely hydrating and comfortable enough to wear all day long. They last a while too. I went about 6 hours or so without having to re-apply. Since the actual product is very soft, they have a tendency to break. So if you want to be super safe, I suggest applying them with a lip brush, or even storing them in the refrigerator (my mom used to do that with her lipsticks!). The packaging is sleek, sophisticated, and very well made. They look a lot more expensive than they really are. I like that you can see the lipstick colors through the clear top lid. Nice touch! The only thing I cannot stand about them is the scent. They smell very perfume-y, sort of like a baby wipe scent. It really isn't a huge deal though, because the smell is only present while applying and it fades away in a few minutes.
