Product Review: Summer Glow LipLocked Lip & Cheek Tints, Multi Pot Creams, Lip Balm, Insta-Colour Creams and More!
Summer is near, can you feel it?
During this season, the beauty trend is natural looking makeup with dewy skin, sunkissed blush, and tinted lips. While we would love to wear makeup so we can enhance our features, it is important to keep them minimal in order to avoid the caking of heavily applied foundation, concealer, and powder caused by summer heat and also, to prevent waxy lipsticks from bleeding and transferring to our face or clothes.
Some of my favorite beauty products to use during this time are no-fuss multi-purpose lip tints, lip balms, and lip creams and I happen to have all of them from SUMMER GLOW! Oh, and yes, they got lots of variety to choose from!
Organic MultiPot Creams
Each pot contains a pigmented makeup cream that can be used as an eyeshadow base, blush on, and lipstick. The formulation is nice for it applies smoothly on the lips while moisturizing it. Also, it is buildable so you may use it sheer or fully opaque.
LipLocked Lip & Cheek Tints
I received this full collection with different packaging: the first one is the Gel Tints contained in something like a bottle with brush applicator that reminds me of nail polish containers, and the second one is the more common cheek & lip tint roller containers. Packaging-wise, I prefer the roller ball type since it is easier to use, unlike the other one which is prone to spilling.
The shade names, I have noticed are inspired by the popar female celebrities in the country. I got 10 shades of them but my personal favorites would be Kathryn, Solenn, Anne, and Julia.
I think the darker shades look very similar to each other, only with a tiny bit of difference. Arci tend to be maroon-ish in person, Isabelle is plum with hint of brown, Georgina is raspberry more red violet-ish, Marian is a brighter version of Georgina only with more pink red tones to it, and Liza seems more dark fuchsia.
For me, their stains last a long time around 2-3hours unless you eat a greasy meal. This is perfect to use when swimming or going to the pool because it can surely leave you with a subtle healthy color on your face and lips.
There are 3 more products here like Insta-Colour (though I am mot sure how different this one is from the Multi-Pot Creams. I really think that they function just the same. Only the color of this one is more opaque and pigmentation is better.
They also have a Multi-Stick makeup that can be used for eyelids, cheeks, and lips. For the lips, they don't moisturize my lips, however, they give a decent color coverage without drying my lips. I think these are easier to use than the Multi-Pot creams because I wouldn't need to use a lip brush anymore (because using your fingers mught contaminate the products!!!)
They have two colors: Sage, mauve pink, and Gwyneth, nude brown. They look more matte compared to the Multi Pot Creams.
I also received their Moisturizing Lip Balm that has a hint of peach brown hue. Applying it on the lips will instantly moisturizeand give a hint of color. I honestly like usung it because during summer, we tend to get dehydrated easily, but with this product, my lips don't dry out nor get chapped!
Summer Glow is a Philippine-brand that aims to provide awareness to the people that we have locally-made products that have great quality with affordable price. They also strive to provide the masses with several choices so that people will support local make ups instead of unlabeled (usually fake) China-made products that may contain toxic chemicals and other harmful ingredients.
