Minxx Lipstick and Liquid Lipstick Set Review + Swatches

I felt that I lived through a series of unfortunate events this week.

On my way to the train station, there was a man walking behind me with very loud footsteps. I thought he was right behind me so I started to walk unsually fast. There's a substantial amount of trees and random little bushlands near my place. As I walked, I heard the loudest crack and thumb behind me. I jumped and realised a part of a tree fell a few steps behind me. I stood there in shock.

On the way back from work, two birds were racing through the air, one nibbed my hair, but if I took a step forward it may have crashed in my head. Wut Wut wut just wut!

When I got home, we had a black out, thanks to the end of day light savings, we sat in pitch dark for an hour.

What a day, when the light came back on, I decided to play with my minx lipstick to help me forget about the day... and to think hard at lotto numbers.

  • Minxx was created by Jo Femia, her aim is to eliminate the struggle of finding the perfect shade of lipstick to suit our ever changing mood.
  • Minxx offers a spectrum of colours, their lip collections will brighten up both moods and lips in a flash.
  • From rich reds and pretty pinks, Jo has created a line of long wearing creme lipsticks and weightless non-sticky liquid lipsticks.
  • MINXX offers 46 carefully chosen shades including nudes and neutrals to orange and purples.
  • MINXX lip products are paraben and cruelty free.

  • MINXX Lipstick in Icing $28.50: The first time I swatched the lipstick it glided on beautifully, amazing colour and creamy texture. I couldn't wait to use it. The following day I decided to wear it to work as a pick-me-up, I noticed a change in the texture it wasn't as creamy and dragged on my lips a little. Nonetheless, the colour was still beautiful, pigmented and I only needed one swipe for a full colour coverage. It lasted for approximately 5 hours until I decided to take it off for lunch (I'm not a big fan of eating my lipstick). It was non-transferrable on my hands, however did transfer onto my tea cup. My lips did feel a little bit dry as the day went on.
  • Day two, I loved "Icing" so much that I wanted to use it again. I went to apply the bullet on my lips and noticed a funny scent, a very heavy plastic smell. I'm guessing that the product had gone off since the pungent scent was not previously noticable. Needless to say, I was very disappointed, but at least I still had the liquid lipstick
  • Liquid Lipstick $32.50: I personally feel that this product is more glossy as opposed to a liquid lipstick. On it's own it gave a brilliant shine and glossy finish. There is also a rather opaque colour pay off. I feel that this product works better in top of a lip colour, for me anyway, I have shakey hands and often find it difficult to evenly distribute glossy lip colours across my lips. The product itself has a strong fruity scent, it's non-sticky and fairly lightweight as per product claim. Maybe it's just my skin, but I didn't feel that the gloss sad on my lips too well.
  • Overall: I love the fact that MINXX is paraben and cruelty free. Sadly, I don't think the two products worked out for me, although I would have liked the lipstick if it didn't go funny. But of course, it's impossible for me to love every single product I try and test.

  1. OMG what scary events! Glad you're ok though! I'm loving the lip shades, Idol in particular looks so pretty. It does look a bit runny in the arm swatch though.

  2. Oh, sad to know that these kind of horrifying events can happen in one week. But Its good for you that you have some new make up to play with. I never heard of this brand, I will check this.
