AMW Reviews: Natasha Beauty Lip Duo

Inexpensive yet good quality makeup you ask?  To be honest, it is so difficult to find them but if I did, it's definitely worth  mentioning!  I recently got to try Natasha Beauty products, yes, you read it right --- Natasha BEAUTY, same as you, I've always associated Natasha with womens wear, menswear, shoes, bags, etc...

To see is to believe....

Natasha Beauty Lip Duos


Here are the 3 shades I've tried and loved, but please read my review.
 Coral Duo



Cosmos Duo

Pink Duo

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Price.
  • 2-in-1 product.
  • Lipstick isn't too drying as compared to other inexpensive lipstick brands.
  • Lipgloss looks superb!  My lips looks hydrated wearing it.
  • All 3 shades that I tried have amazing pigmentation.

Cons
  • Doesn't last long.  Re-application is needed within an hour or 2.
  • Not widely available.  You have to depend on online swatches to pick the shade you like.
  • The lipstick side packaging.  I prefer the lipstick to roll way down to the bottom to prevent accident!  I nearly broke my lipstick so many times every time I try to put the cap back on.
Neutral
  • More shades will be very much appreciated!  This is the best time to try on loud/bold lipstick shades since the price and quality is good.

Overall
A pretty, pigmented lipstick/lipgloss duo that doesn't leave your lips dry upon application.

Tips
  • You can wear lipstick or lipgloss on its own for various looks.
  • Removing and returning the cap off the lipstick must be done with care.
  • Coral Duo is meant for medium to dark skin girls who would like the nude lips effect.
  • Cosmos Duo works for all skin colors but I highly recommend this shade to fair skinned girls as this color creates a nice pop minus the "a bus hit my lips" effect.
  • Pink Duo is best used by girls who are looking for Bright blue undertone pink lipsticks from high end brands but are on a budget!  Quite a close match to MAC's Pink Nouveau.
  • For more precise application, use a lip brush to apply your lipstick.  
  • For fuller lips effect, apply a good amount of lipgloss at the center of your lips spreading outwards.  
  • Take this along with you as re-application is needed.

Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Girls who love to wear lipstick and lipgloss but are on a budget! 

Where to purchase and how much?
 Available at www.natasha.ph for Php200.00 (approx $5.00).

 Coral Duo

Most coral-shade lip color have strong orange shade, not this one!  I like the fact that Natasha came up with their version of a toned-down coral shade having more browns than orange!  This shade creates a very natural, healthy-looking lips.  


Applied with lipgloss, I prefer to apply minimal gloss as I have full-looking lips!

Cosmos Duo  
Cosmos is a unique red shade.  This can be written down on "I want to wear red but I'm afraid to try" lip product list! 

You can adjust the brightness of the lip color (just like a television) by piling up more if you want to create brighter looking lips! The advantage of this color is how it can brighten up fair to medium skin tone.




Applied with Cosmos gloss


Pink Duo
A bright pink almost fuchsia shade that has a blue undertone perfect for users with cool skin tone.


This shade reminded me so much of MAC's Pink Nouveau.  I find it a bit difficult to wear as I prefer warmer toned lip colors!  This lipstick is best used on events when I am too lazy to apply my eye makeup.


 Applied with gloss, I like how moisturized my lips look even though in real life, it is as dry as ever!
