Review: Born Pretty!

I first stumbled on the Born Pretty website when I started noticing their ads on some of my favorite bloggers. When I finally checked their page out, I was surprised by how cheap their items were. Normally that would raise some kind of an internal alarm but after reading a bunch of reviews from other companies and bloggers, I decided to give them a try. I found myself already saving numerous items on my wishlist so when I had an opportunity to review an item from their list of choices, I jumped right in.

I decided to try out their Fashion Popular Lip Candy Color Lipstick (that's a mouthful!) because I've been seeing a trend of Nail Polish reviews about the company. So I decided to go a different direction...and I also needed new lipstick.

When I opened the package I immediately noticed that the lipstick that I ended up getting was a bit orange. I stared at it for about 5 minutes telling myself over and over that 'I swear I ordered the red'. Whatever, it's a lipstick and i'll review it regardless!

My package also came with a surprise which I hear they almost always do for their orders. I got a simple but cute retractable pen. I thought it was a nice touch of appreciation for their customers and almost immediately won my heart!

Regardless of the color, the lipstick was very smooth. The color was very pigmented and lasted for almost three hours and as it faded, my lip somehow turned a shade darker. 
Before                                                                                 After
               Pro: Smooth application, pigmented, no line residue overtime.
Con: Labeling, wrong color (minor con).
