Zoeva and Luscious Lipsticks to Get that Girl-Next-Door Look

It’s amazing how a dash of color on a woman’s lips changes her personality and appeal.

I’m getting more addicted with using different lip products and different colors these days. In one day, I’d probably use 2-3 different brands and shades of lipsticks at work: one in the morning before I go, another one right before stepping out of the car and a third one when I retouch after lunch time. I find it fun and stylish to be shifting lip colors through the day!

I have a collection of lip colors that I mainly use for my office look but there are times when I want to have that simple, innocent look (so I don’t look like that tough monster all the time at work, haha!).

I love shopping at Luxola and I had a fun time choosing 3 lipsticks to try and to achieve a girl-next-door look. I picked 3 different shades from light pink to vibrant red. And I was also excited to try 2 brands of lip color that I haven’t tried before: Luscious Cosmetics and Zoeva. I’ve tried Zoeva brushes and I loved them so I decided to try its Lip Crayon.

The Zoeva Lip Crayon comes in a black matte box and the lip crayon stick comes in a black matte finish with silver text letterings. The lip color shade is visible at one end so it’s easy to identify even with the cap on.

Color: Tender Rose
Lipstick Pencil
Made in Germany
2.8g / 0.10oz
Price: RM34.00

What is it:
The ZOEVA Lip Crayon is a chunky lipstick pencil with a super light and creamy formula. It gives your lips sharp colour and a fine shiny finish. This product is also very smooth, as it melts naturally like butter on your lips for a visibly soft and plump effect.

What makes it great:
This lip product contains Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil, making the lips smoother, plumped and moisturized.

The downside to this crayon is that it’s not the twist up type. You need to use a sharpener for this one.

The texture of this crayon is amazing. It’s so easy to apply, it glides smoothly on the lips on its own. I normally use lip balm with some other lipsticks but with this Zoeva lip crayon, I’m good to go without balm. It also has a soft sheen finish, giving you an overall fresh look. With light makeup, I can easily have a girl-next-door look. Adding a hair accessory like this Sereni and Shentel thin headband makes it even sweeter.

I also decided to try this brand, Luscious Cosmetics, as it has an interesting name and the shades are fashionable. This Signature Lipstick comes in a combination black and silver tube, with the color visible on the base, like Zoeva Lip Crayon.

The texture is good and color is buildable. If you want a very light touch of color, you can apply 1 swipe. I, however, prefer a deeper shade so I apply 2-3 swipes then blot my lips over folded tissue. It has a darker color than Zoeva Lip Crayon but it still gives me that girl-next-door look. Combined with a white plain headband, my look is complete, voila!

And who said that dark, rich red lipstick won’t give you a sugar-spice-and-everything-nice appeal?

I was happy to give this Luscious Super Moisturizing Lipstick a try. The shade I picked is sexily named ‘Flirty Fuschia’, and it comes in a sleek silver tube. Nudes dominate the full color collection and I picked one of the deepest colors.

The texture is great and like the other Luscious lipstick, the color is also buildable. Because it contains Vitamin E and Grape Seed oil, this lipstick feels smooth and comfortable on the lips. 

Yes, the color might seem too sexy for a girl-next-door look but with light eye makeup and right accessories, this shade can be sweet and dandy. Here is the flirty fuschia paired with my red Sereni and Shentel headband.
