Yo. I didn't know how interested you dolls were in the Shea Moisture cosmetics line until I posted a selfie of myself swatching the goods over on my SnapChat. As promised, here is my in-depth review of the items included in this months Sheabassador box.
Shea Butter Lucious Lipstick
Before we get into the actual product--can we talk about this packaging? It's this super svelte matte brown tubing with rose-gold foil for the logo. YES LORDT! Alright let's get it: the color payoff was a lot richer than I expected. With it being Shea butter based, I assumed it would wear more like a tinted gloss but it is POPPING. Very rich and pigmented--I only needed one pass to get true tube color.
I'm a flight attendant so I do a LOT of smiling. A common problem I have are lipsticks that dry out and feather and even worse, lipsticks that bleed into the creases of my lip line over the course of the day. The Butter Lucious Lipstick (in Berry, $9.99) kept my pout moisturized (see that lusciousness in the GIF above?!) for more than 4 hours with no bleed!
Be mindful: because this is a butter based lipstick, it transfers crazy easily. Just a note!
Ultra Curl & Define Mascara
The mascara (in Black, $8.99) is definitely a plus for me. The product itself is wet enough to coat each and every lash (even the tiny lower lashes!) and thick enough to add an almost voluminous effect to even the sparsest of lashes. I will say that the brush head could be revamped: it's a plastic stippled brush which does little to meter how much product you actually get on the end of the wand. A little manipulating, wiping off of the excess product, and it is PERF!
Mineral Eye Shadow Palette
Lastly we have the eyeshadow palette (in Volcanic Stone $12.99), My foray into eyeshadow is novice at best--if I'm being honest! But Shea Moisture made it a breeze with a super easy to follow diagram on the reverse of the palette to show you where best to place each shade. As evidenced in the picture above, the color is amazing. It wears beautifully throughout the day and doesn't give you that juvenile glittery effect that some shadows do.
Of all of these items, my fave is definitely the Butter Lucious Lipstick! I can't wait to stock up on these bad boys. Especially with fall right around the corner, I'm ready for deep purples, maroons and chocolate tones! What item would you like to try? Leave a comment below!
