Maybelline Lip Studio Python Metallic Lip Kit ($9.99 USD) feature duos in gorgeous lip colors and prismatic lip powders. I was set the collection to review for my honest review. These can be purchased at mass market retailers.
These are duos as you can see below, a lip cream and a metallic top coat.
I’m going to swatch these in groups. Here are the first three:
From left to right — 05 Passionate, 10 Piercing and 15 Venomous. I have placed the two colors in each kit side by side, then above is the two colors together. These are all very bold and fun!
From left to right — 20 Wild, 25 Valiant and 30 Provoked. Wild is bright and fun! It’s kind of hard to see in the swatch, but the metallic is a bronze. I think this look will be nice on tanned, summer skin. My two favorites out of the whole collection are Valiant (I love purple) and Provoked is a cool nude.
From left to right — 35 Snakebite and 40 Untamed. Snakebite will be so fun for St. Patrick’s day, especially with the gold on tip. Untamed is really cool. Great for dramatic looks!
What I think: These are on trend and really fun. And there are a good variety of shades to try. These do work well, and I find the best way to use them is to apply the lip color with a brush, then dab the glitter on with a finger.
Also, the metallic toppers can be used on the eyes, or maybe even as a glittery highlighter. They are a bit sticky, so make sure to blend!
The only negative to me is they feel a little dry on. Plus, I’m almost fifty and I can’t see myself wearing these often. Maybe for fun nights out and holidays.
Have you tried these fun lip products?
