A few days ago, I found an amazing review about some neon lipsticks on Suzanne’s blog. They looked amazingly bright & awesome, so after reading her review I decided to buy them both.
I bought the lipsticks on eBay, from this seller, for only €7! I can recommend this seller, I received the lipsticks in perfect condition, within 7 days. I ordered the same colors as Suzanne, which are 102 (neon orange) and 106 (neon red/pink).
Star Gazer Lipsticks come in a very cheap-looking (at least, in my opinion), round plastic case. The white text isn’t making the packaging look any prettier too.. The ingredients are mentioned on the side of the lipstick, which isn’t a pretty look. So sad, because these lipsticks really deserve better! The cover is see-through, which is cool, so you can see the amazing color immediately. The lipsticks contain 3.2 gr. of product, which is pretty good, considering it’s low price. I really like the shape of the lipstick itself, it makes it very easy to apply it on your lips.
102 – 106

I’m a little disappointed about the packaging, but I’m definitely not disappointed about the lipsticks itself! Both colors are AMAZINGLY pretty, so neon and nothing like I’ve ever seen before. They have a nice texture, they feel a little jelly-ish when I swatched them. The color pay-off is amazing, which I really didn’t expect since they’re neons after all. Fortunately, the lipsticks don’t have a smell whatsoever. I was scared that they’d smell like plastic LOL! They feel very creamy on the lips and they don’t feel drying at all. The staying power is very good, they last up to 3 hours for me. They do transfer a little, if you eat/drink something.
These lipsticks are definitely not for the faint of heart, but if you like bright makeup then I highly suggest for you to pick them up, since they’re amazing! I’m so sad that we can’t get them anywhere in stores here.
Star Gazer Lipsticks can be purchased on eBay or from their Dutch Webshop for approximately €4 each.
Have you ever been daring enough to wear neon makeup?
