Honest Review | Younique Moodstruck Powder Lipstick
Ever since the day I first tried SeneGence LipSense, I was impressed by it's long lasting power, until it started flaking off in wierd bits and chunks, despite my perfect application. Don't get me started on the burn that came from being loaded with alcohol and the overly potent smell of the stuff.
I chose to quit using it, but from then on, I was determined to find a good, lightweight, long-lasting lipstick that I liked. I stumbled across Younique's Moodstruck Crush Lip Powder from my friend Courtney Bready and decided to give it a shot.
It came in a set of three, with three colors I was particularly in love with. If you know me, you know I hate buying sets of things when I know I won't wear all of it - it's one reason I'm super obsessed with Maskcara. But that's a story for another day!
The three colors are a really pretty sort of everyday pink mauve called Casual, a true bold red called Curvaceous, and a gorgeous purple berry color called Captivating. I felt like it really covered all the bases of darker lip colors, since I use my Maskcara Lip + Cheek colors when I want something more subtle and light.
I was also really intrigued with the concept of it being a fine powder in the jar and turning to a cream when it's applied to the warmth of your skin. You can see in the video both of these interesting features! The best part about it is that it is supposed to leave it feeling super lightweight on your lips, and I totally found that to be true! The first time I put it on, I was blown away that I could not feel the normal "barrier" on my lips to the breath going in and out of my mouth with regular lipstick.
As for the lasting power, it definitely lasts for probably 6-8 hours for me, among eating, drinking, kissing my hubby, etc. I'm content with that for a long wear lipstick, but even better than the lasting power is that when it begins to wear, it wears evenly, instead of flaking off in chunks.
Overall, I would rate this lipstick probably an 8 out of 10 and I would recommend trying it! I can't say the colors would work for everyone, but I think for the most part they are a really versatile variety!
