Makeup is poppin’ and so many brands are up and coming. There’s more to the makeup industry than what is sold at the local drugstore, Ulta and Sephora, so I thought it’d be cool to try a new brand. As a result, I purchased a metallic lipstick from Nevermind Cosmetics.
I was really excited about this purchase because this company is based in Miami, and I’m a Miami native (well Hialeah, but whatever ?). Also, I was excited because this company only sells lipsticks (for now as far as I’m aware) and they’re affordable. The metallic lipsticks are $13 each and the matte ones are $15 each; you get a $5 coupon for signing up for their cute and non-obtrusive mailing list. When a company only sells one kind of product, I’m given the impression that they specialize in this. I get the same impression from Bite Beauty. I think it’s okay for a brand to only sell one kind of product because they’re able to dedicate all of their resources to continue producing it at a high-quality.
This was my first metallic lipstick and I was very impressed. The lipstick shape and feel is unique. It felt firm, yet creamy enough to glide on my lips. It could totally survive a Third World War with how firm and well-made it feels. The packaging is also very cute. I’m not one to really address packaging because I mostly purchase drugstore-priced makeup. I can’t really expect much out of packaging if the product is very affordable.
The presentation of this product is also stunning. The mailing package was baby pink and covered in Lisa Frank stickers! When I opened the package, it was filled with the type of confetti (I think?) that’s used to fill Easter eggs. In addition to receiving a lipstick, I got a baby pink choker and a handwritten note! This was the sweetest touch and shows the value of my purchase to the owners of this company.
I think Nevermind Cosmetics is definitely worth checking out. They have sales every so often, making their products even more worthwhile. I rate their lipstick a 5/5!
