FITGLOW 👄 COLOUR SERUMS
I finally caved & took advantage of the new @fitglowbeauty Lip Colour Serum Duo. This contains two new nude shades, Buff and Root. Buff is described to be a "creamy toffee nude", and Root to be a "deeper, earthy nude tone". I couldn't have described these better. •
Buff is a "my lips but better" shade for me. It sits between Ilia Maybe Baby and Kokomo, in that it's cooler than Maybe Baby but warmer than Kokomo. Definitely an excellent in-between that would work for many skin tones. •
I definitely expected to prefer Buff over Root, but as soon as I swatched both on my lips I fell so hard for Root. Root is a warm nude that has the brown tones I want in an autumn/winter shade, but isn't too bold. It's what I wanted Charlotte Tilbury Birkin Brown to be, but more sheer with a beautiful glossy finish to it. •
There is a lot I love about these. They're like pigmented glosses that don't leave the lips feeling sticky or heavy. There is no sparkle, just a beautiful sheen. I wouldn't say they are buildable, although they are so good on bare lips and over a lipstick, so you can build up the colour by layering a lipstick of lip pencil underneath. The packaging is also great, as the opening pulls product off the applicator very well, meaning you get just the right amount of product and no mess around the opening. •
I put Root to the test by applying it before eating an oily pasta dish. Afterwards, the gloss had mostly worn off but there was a light stain left behind. The colour wore off evenly as well. •
The product does claim to be plumping but I didn't notice a difference, nor do I care for plumping products. My only complaint is that it does tend to bleed around the corners of the mouth and isn't very precise for the cupid's bow area. However, it does seem to stay in place if the lips are lined prior to applying the lip serum, so it's an easy fix. •
I couldn't recommend these enough! I have my eyes on Beach Glow now.
