Were they right?
Errr yes, both colours are PERFECT. But, it's not just the colour that impressed me, it's the texture and packaging too. The sizes of these are comparable to a Mac dazzleglass and lipglass.
I was sent 'Girlina' weightless lip creme and 'Chimera' luminous volume gloss. 'Girlina' is designed to give you Barbie pink lips. However, I beg to differ as I can say that the colour is a peach toned pink and not a flat pink. When I saw 'Chimera' all I could think of was J Lo. It looks like a colour she would wear.
The texture of the weightless lip creme is like a super moisturising lipstick in lipgloss form, it feels like you are gliding on a nourishing cream. It's not sticky at all. The only texture that I can think that is slightly close to this, is the YSL Rouge Voluptes but, is much smoother and more velevety. This texture of lip product is by far the easiest to apply. 'Girlina' delivers a highly pigmented colour to your lips, the colour is more sheer than opaque. It's a everyday colour that can brighten up your look, one coat of mascara and you are good to go.
Chimera is designed to be a luminous lip gloss, it certainly makes my lips look plump and awake without including any sparkles. The colour is a duo chrome peach with flecks of lilac and pink. It delivers a good amount of pigmentation and doesn't necessarily need lipstick under it. The application is quite smooth and doesn't make my lips stick together. My only complaint is that the wand comes flared out and you have instructions attached for you to wash the brush to make it nice and neat. who can be bothered to do that? Anyway!
Here's what Girlina and Chimera look like together... It's very pretty! Both products last a decent amount of time even after eating.
Price: 'Chimera' LVG £22
Yes!! They are rather expensive. Is it worth it? Well, if you are treating yourself and want something 'special' then go for it.
Not interested in texture and want colour dupes?
1. Bourjois Sweet Kiss lipstick: (46) 'Rose Corset'.
2. Barry M Lip paint: (147) 'Peachy Pink'.
3. Mac LE lustre lipstick: 'Made with love'.
4. Beaute weightless lip creme: (115) 'Girlina'.
5. Beaute luminous volume gloss (007) 'Chimera'.
6. Mac lustreglass 'Love Nectar'.
The closest thing to Chimera that I had was 'Love Nectar' but as you can see, it's much sheerer and doesn't have the duochrome finish, it has more sparkles.
Have you tried any Beaute products?
