Absolute New York Velvet Lippie in Lolita Review!


One of the reasons that I love Glossybox and probably the main reason as to why I keep subscribed to it is that you're always sent products from brands you've never heard of and would probably never have brought for yourself. Basically it's a great way to broaden your beauty horizons without breaking the bank.

One of those products was the Absolute New York Velvet Lippie lip lacquer. Obviously I've heard of lip lacquers products before but Absolute New York is definitely a new one for me!

Obviously the first thing you notice is the bright baby pink shade which I have in the past shied away from purely because I think I look slightly like a Barbie doll when I wear it BUT I did actually enjoy wearing it. Yes it still looked really light but I liked the way it looked. It made me feel quite summery!

The formula itself is really creamy and it easy glides on the lips without any hassle. It dries pretty quickly but it's not uncomfortable and you can still move your lips!

Overall it's a great little product and for the price of $5.99, it's not too expensive either! I would compare it to the Collection Cream Puff Lip Creams which I have also loved in the past but I'd say the Absolute wins because there's so much more choice of colours!

If you didn't get it in your Glossybox, you can check it out here!
