Still on the theme of warming things up a bit in hopeful anticipation of a glorious Summer, I’ve got another lovely bright lip to show you. This one comes with a difference though, it’s a liqui-gel formula that can also be used as a long-lasting cheek stain.
Beauté Cosmetics hail from Canada, brainchild of makeup artist Beau Nelson. The range includes lip cremes, glosses, brushes and these lovely liqui-gel stains. I already own a lip creme (which I don’t believe I’ve ever blogged about) but knew that I wanted to buy one of the liqui-gel stains after reading about them a couple of years ago on LondonMakeupGirl’s blog.
How ridiculous(ly cool) does it look in the tube? I think, if I’m honest, it’s probably what attracted me in the first place. Super-neon coral with a cool pink flash? Awesome. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t apply anywhere near as scarily as it suggests it will! Once applied and blended on the lips or cheeks, it’s a really wearable warm pink – perhaps a little vibrant for some, but so very beautiful.
As far as application goes, it’s pretty forgiving once you get used to the texture. It doesn’t set immediately and gives a fair amount of playtime to get things right before you’re stuck with clown cheeks for the entire day. Buildability is the key to success with this one, don’t apply a load in one go, especially on the lips or you’ll struggle getting the formula to sit well. Once the stain has set (after about a minute) you’ll be rewarded with some delicious colour that won’t budge for hours.
The above photo shows Fluoron worn alone on bare lips with a little on my cheeks, I should have applied a touch more for the sake of the camera but I was wary of overdoing it. Hopefully, you can still make out the colour well enough. I don’t generally enjoy wearing stains too much but I’m making an exception for this one, or should I say… it’s made an exception for me.
