The MeNow lipsticks are blowing the internet. I don’t purchase cosmetics on eBay, but those were a must for me to try and test them. The MeNow Long Lasting Matte Lipsticks are, indeed, waterproof whether you believe it or not!
I think the package is quite nice, considering the price of the product. The printing on the tube is coming off, but that’s ok.
As I said before, they are completely matte, when they set. When I test them I was extremely surprised that I noticed that they are enough pigmented liquid lipsticks that set in seconds. A heaven full of lipsticks (?). When they set, they are quite difficult to come off, but when it does, they are coming off as flakes, and this is gross. The dark shades and few of the lighters are enough good with one layer. I prefer to apply, some of the lighter shades, with a thin layer at the bottom, wait for a minute, and then apply one more layer (rarely two). The best application to avoid the flaking effect, as much as possible, is to exfoliate my lips, apply a lipstick primer, a lip pencil all over the lips and two thin layers of the MeNow Liquid Lipsticks.
Generally speaking, I think these are an entirely extraordinary item for its cost. At a higher point, the major issue for me is when they are coming off they are coming off as flakes. If I am to go out for a few hours, I always have to check my lips and do a few touch ups. Most of their shades are wearable. I absolutely recommend to give them a try, at least one time.
The shades, 02, 03, 04, 05, 07, 08, 09, 11, 13, 17, 18, 19, 22, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 32, 33 and 36 are in my lipstick collection.
