I’m such a sucker for pretty packaging! Recently, as I browsing Sephora’s website, I came across the Bury Them With a Smile Lipstick from Pretty Vulgar and was just enamored with the fun name and adorable design on the lipstick tube. I couldn’t help myself – I just had to buy it. But I’m so glad I did! This product can be purchased from Sephora and similar retailers for $24.
Not only is this a fun lipstick to look at and carry around in your handbag, it actually performs really well too. I purchased the shade, “Darling, Be Daring,” which is a great cool-toned fuchsia. It applies pretty opaquely and very evenly in just one or two swipes. The finish is matte, and I’ve been so impressed by how this holds up throughout the day.
This is a long-wear lipstick, and it wears very well. There is minimal transfer when eating and drinking. After a big meal, you can tell that it’s faded a bit (and not completely evenly if you look closely at the inner portion of the lips), but it still looks pretty good after eating. Still, I tend to reapply after a meal, although I think I could get away with not reapplying and it would still be passable.
The product description of this lipstick claims to keep your lips moisturized with hydrating butters and oils, and I do disagree with this claim. While I’ve been pleased that it doesn’t seem to dry my lips out too much and never settles into any lines, it is certainly not moisturizing. My lips are definitely a bit dryer at the end of the day (as is normal for any long-wear lipstick) and I require a thicker balm in the evening to remedy this for the next day.
Overall, I’ve been really pleased with this lipstick. The shade is so pretty, and it’s been so easy to maintain throughout the day. I highly recommend this one!
Have you tried anything from Pretty Vulgar? If so, please let me know in the comment section. I don’t know much about the brand, and I’d love to try another of their products.
