The lovely team at Manna Kadar was kind enough to send me Lip Locked, their newest lip products, for review. Manna Kadar Cosmetics’s motto is beauty simplified, and that is exemplified in their range of prestige cosmetics containing cutting edge color with the finest ingredients. Many of the products can be used for multiple purposes which really cuts down on the number of products you need in your cosmetic bag! It also allows you to get ready in less time which, if you’re anything like me, is exactly what you need most work days.
The new Lip Locked lip stain is the perfect example of this. Lip Locked is a primer, stain and gloss all in one! Vitamins A & E keep lips hydrated and allow for a smooth application. I’m all about simplicity when it comes to my makeup, so this 3-in-1 product was very intriguing!
I received the colors Lucky, a nude petal-pink and Manna Babe, a creamy magenta. Lucky is a perfect MLBB color that looks beautiful on. Manna Babe looks a bit intimidating and too bright in the tube, but once applied, it takes on a deep berry color, which happens to be a favorite look of mine in the fall. Lip Locked leaves lips moisturized and not too glossy, which is the perfect combination for me. Your lips don’t feel sticky (the thing I hate most about lip glosses!!), so you almost forget you have it on!
I am surprised at how much I adore this product. I don’t usually love glosses due to the stickiness factor, but I love lip stains because of how easy they are and because they usually wear off evenly. This product has the easy of a stain and leaves a bit of a gloss without the stickiness making it the perfect product. I’m already looking over the other colors to decide which one to buy next (I think All of Me, a nude rose-pink or All of You, a all-purpose nude are the winners)! I also think these would be perfect for stocking stuffers for my sisters!
