I got my first Glam Sense Box in the mail last week, but I couldn’t take any pictures of it since the lighting is TERRIBLE over here and the sun sets around 5pm these days.
Here’s the Teeez Glam Sense Box!
The Teeez Glam Sense Box had one item: the Read My Lips Lipstick in Roulette Red. It came in a sleek black tube with a small brochure with some simple instructions on how to complete the Glam Sense campaign.
Basically, review, post on a social media platform with #teeezinGS, and email a link or a screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org by the date listed on the card! It’s so easy!
So, how is Teeez’s Read My Lips Lipstick in Roulette Red?
The lipstick is in a thin, plastic tube, which I was a little bit disappointed about. The graphic design is absolutely amazing, but I don’t like cheap plastic for higher end cosmetics! I’m always worried that the tube will crack or get crushed in my makeup bag or in my purse.
However, the lid does lock pretty tightly on the tube, so that’s really good. I’m not sure if that’ll wear out in the future, though.
I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks since they usually dry out my (already) dry lips, but I love super high, long lasting pigmentation!
Right out of the tube, it looks like a dark red with some brown tones. I usually avoid darker reds like this because it kind of clashes with my skin tones and I just don’t have the right mojo to really pull of that kind of style.
Otherwise, it’s a really great, dramatic shade of red!
As you can see, it’s SUPER pigmented! It’s just 2 quick swipes of the lipstick on my hand and it’s so, so red!
I tested it on my lips and I can tell you that it can easily last 8 hours of wear. I ate a big lunch with coffee and it didn’t budge at all! It’s also very silky and rich feeling without being very heavy, which is really amazing since it’s so pigmented.
The only issue is that the lipstick is really soft. My mom twisted the tube the wrong way and the whole lipstick fell right out! Be careful of heat with this lippy!
Final Verdict – I love how long lasting and moisturizing Teeez’s Read My Lips Lipstick is, but I wouldn’t keep it with me in a small purse or in a warm room. The artwork is gorgeous, but the packaging is so-so. I would have loved it a lot more if it was a different colour, but that’s just personal preference!
At $22USD, it comes up to about $29.50CAD before shipping and taxes.
