NOTE - This is the first time i have EVER done lip swatches so be kind =)
Hey all so here is yet another product review =p this time I am reviewing the Darling Girl Cosmetic Lip Primer called the Pout Perfect Lip Primer.

Official DGC description - Try Darling Girl Cosmetics Pout Perfect for pout perfection! The easy-glide formula feels velvety-soft will fill in lines, build up the contour of your lips while helping lipstick stay put longer and resist fading and feathering.
*Note this is a fairly soft formula and for some reason it doesn't like to twist back down into the tube so don't twist it up too much.
Ingrededients: Cyclomethicone, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Ozokerite Wax, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Microcrystalline Wax and Mentha piperita (Peppermint) Oil

This product comes packaged in a twist up lipstick tube with a cute (not waterproof) label. The product looks white in colour but as you can see in the picture below it applies clear.


The sizing of the tube is quite reasonable you get 0.07 oz for $5.75 USD. As mentioned on the DGC web page this product if you twist it up to far it doesn’t wind down easily I found placing it in the freezer worked best for winding down SLIGHTLY. However this issue IS addressed on the DGC webpage which I mentioned earlier.

The lip primer applies smoothly and has a hydrating feel about it, I don’t get any ‘tingling’ from the peppermint or any unpleasant or overbearing scent. I tested this primer against OCC Lip Tar in NSFW which is a shade NOTORIOUS on me to feather below are the before and after photos


the last two photos were taken after I went out for lunch so not bad =) and as you can see NO signs of feathering =) over all i am very impressed

Product: 7/10

Texture: 9/10

Longevity: 8/10

Application: 7/10

Packaging: 6/10

Final thoughts: for a Indy lip primer this is fantastic one of the BEST I have tried it definitely helped with my feathering issue and helped my lip tar last. It is SLIGHTLY hard to work with as it is a very soft formula  (thus the lower score on packaging) a light hand works best when applying and not to overwind (like it did >_<) but I will buy again once I use up my tube =)

Overall Rating:  B+

Tick Tock Cosmetics - Lip Glosses

Hello lovely’s

OK so here is another product review on the Tick Tock glosses  Honeymoon annnd Friday I’m in love =)

I ordered these a while ago these glosses retail at $5.95 USD. TT:C are an American based Indy brand but will ship internationally for $4.00 USD. The webpage doesn’t list how many mL per tube and the labelling doesn’t either but i talked to the TT:C owners and they have let me know each tube holds around 10mL of product.

Now onto the fun stuff ;) glosses

Friaday I’m In Love (FIIL)

Official description - Friday I'm In Love is a bright, but sheer pink semi sticky gloss with a strong aqua shift, and pink and purple glitters. Peppermint flavored.

My description – a Cotton candy Pink with glitters slight blue shift but not enough to change colour completely slightly sticky formula especially when applied to med/full coverage Peppermint flavored.

General thoughtsI really like this gloss applied sheer over a bright pink lipstick although it most definitely is a colour you can wear on its own the advantage of FIIL is that with its blue shift is that it will actually BRIGHTEN you teeth a little as Blue cancels out yellow great for close up photos =)


Official description - Honeymoon is a sheer, shimmery gloss, loaded with sparkle and a slight red/purple shift.

My Description – A extremely faint ‘pearl’ colour with loads and loads of glitter and shimmer.

General Thought – this is my favourite of the two glosses this is a great colour to apply over lipsticks or stains to give your lips a glossy/sparkle look best applied as a thin coat. As to the red/purple shift in the TT:C description I don’t see it I’ve looked in natural and indoor lighting to me there is no colour shift.

So recommendations I LOVE both colours however if you ARE only wanting to purchase one I would defiantly recommended Honeymoon it’s a extremely versatile colour that can alter the look of other lipsticks/stains =)

Longevity: 5/10

Application: 8/10

Packaging: 8/10

Final thoughts: Overall the Glosses are very versatile both can be worn alone or on top of other lip colours, they CAN be sticky if applied heavily but otherwise are very workable squeezey tube makes for easy application the products are pigmented and you definitely get the bang for your bug the product size if very generous
