Hello there and a happy Friday to ya!
Today I have the newly reformulated Jesse’s Girl Lipstick 18, which comes in twelve brand new shades. They come in black shiny tubes with the bottoms corresponding to the actual lipstick shade, which I always find very helpful. They come in either a semi-matte, creme or sheer/creme formula and have that kind of old-time-y lipstick scent that you either love or hate.
Victoria is a light nude/pink with a sheer creme finish.
Yesenia is a rose pink with a sheer creme finish.
Penelope is a bright bubblegum pink creme.
Georgia is a deep rose pink creme.
Angeles is a deep plum with a semi-matte finish.
Krystal is a warm-toned medium pink with a creme finish.
Christina is a light mauve with a sheer creme finish.
Ventura is a medium berry with a semi-matte finish.
Carmen is a deep brick red with a creme finish.
Niki is a deep warm raspberry with a creme finish.
Veronica is a bright ruby red with a creme finish.
Elizabeth is a deep red with a semi-matte finish.
I’m not exactly sure what I expected from these, but they turned out better than I thought they would somehow. Most of them (at least the non-sheer ones) have really good pigmentation and they feel very creamy and nice. They don’t feel or look like cheap lipsticks. Of course I am not really one for sheer shades, so my favorites are the brighter and more pigmented ones like Penelope and Veronica. There are a lot of these in the “red/berry/brown” and warm-toned color range, so I personally would love to see more cool-toned ones and some more unusual shades. For the price though, I am pretty pleased with how they looked and felt.
You can find Jesse’s Girl Lipstick 18 on their site and in stores now and they are $4.99 each.
Do you see anything here you want to check out in person?
