Senna Cosmetics have just released their Summer 2013 Sunglow Collection that is based on two looks for summer. Today I'm going talk about one of the lipsticks from the Bronzelite Look.
Midas* is a gold metallic cream lipstick. Eugenia Weston, Founder of Senna Cosmetics used this Lipstick to highlight the cupid's bow when layered on another lipstick. For this review I didn't later it on another lipstick and thought it looked rather nice for summer as it gave off some shimmery hints of gold when used alone. I used to be such a huge fan of nude lipsticks and as you may know half of my MAC lipstick collection are nude coloured lipsticks that unfortunately aren't used at all lately. This lipstick does indeed fall into this "nude" category. I would use Eugenia's technique and really use it to highlight another lipstick as it gives definition and added colour since I am not a huge lipgloss fan.
The downfall of this lipstick is that they are very soft. Living in a hot climate, this lipstick did move when applied and I do have a dent on the side of the lipstick so If you do live on a hot island like myself, I would suggest having a little container in the Fridge for any cream soft lipsticks as they will keep their shape and not melt in the hot weather.
The lipstick contains Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and also Hyaluronic Filling Spheres which I was surprised it included. The Hyaluronic acid plumps up the skin and holds onto water so with that being said I noticed my lips did look fuller when wearing this lipstick so do expect a plumper lip.
