Swatch It Up: MeNow Generation II Long Lasting Lip Gloss + Review | Shades and Highlights

 MeNow Long Lasting Generation II Lipgloss in #18 Review | Shades and Higlights

Hello everyone!

Last week as I was browsing through some makeup and beauty trends, I stumbled upon a post about this particular lip gloss that is going viral from MeNow and it is their Generation II Long Lasting Lip Gloss. MeNow is a Chinese cosmetic company that became famous because of how affordable their products are. I got it at around 130+ Php. It claims to be waterproof, smudge-proof, and even kiss-proof. So, I decided to try it out and got the shade #18 which is kind of a muted brown-ish pink (see swatches below).

Application Process and Review:

I applied a thin coat all over my lips and let it dry for few seconds. It turned out to be matte but sticky. It is important to let it dry completely and avoid pressing your lips together. You may apply  a translucent powder over your lips to get rid of the stickiness.

I was really impressed of its lasting power! It lasted for hours and did not smudge while I was eating and drinking. With that, taking it off makes it difficult without using makeup remover wipes or washing it off thoroughly with soap and water.

One thing that I did not like is how sticky it feels and if you will not prep your lips first with a lip balm, it will definitely dry out your lips. Also, if you are planning to buy and you are not sure what shade to get, do not rely on the color of the tube as it is not that accurate as sometimes, the actual shade turns out to be darker or lighter. Another concern is due to its stickiness as it catches up dust particles easily. I recommend not wearing this lip gloss when you're going outdoors or in a polluted place.

Overall, I am giving it a 3 out of 5 stars. because of its affordability and great color payoff. Though, I am not really that satisfied with its formulation though due to its stickiness.
