Helps the lips appear smooth and moisturized while visibly easing the signs of aging. Apply evenly to lips for a customized look.
29 Cosmetics’ Reserves Grape Seed Age Protecting Moisturizing Lipstick SPF 20 is a moisturizing lipstick that is available in 2 dozen shades. This review is for the lipstick in Lightly Crushed–a sheer frosted nude.
This lipstick comes in a reflective, silver, rectangular tube with the 29 logo at the top of the cap.
Lightly Crushed is a perfectly universal color whose nude quality is both noticeable and understated. It gives the lips a completely natural flush of color that isn’t loud or opaque, but still adds a beautiful tint to the lips. The lipstick leaves a subtly glossy finish.
The formula for this lipstick is extremely moisturizing. It feels like a very emollient chapstick that leaves a protective barrier over the lips. I wish the lipstick lasted for longer (it lasts 1-2 hours, which is expected with a moisturizing lipstick), but while it’s only your lips it hydrates them very well.
This lipstick has a funky scent to it (it smells the way my grandmother’s lipsticks used to smell), but I don’t notice the smell at all after I apply the lipstick.
Ease of Use: 10/10
This lipstick glides onto the lips without needing to apply any extra pressure and the color is effortless to apply too.
For $25.00 you get 0.16 ounces (4.5 grams) of lipstick. This is a little more product than you usually get with a high-end brand for around the same price-point.
