This product review comes in from Linda, she recently had the opportunity to try one of my favorite lipsticks from Thevi Cosmetics…
I received this lipstick as a sample with the help of Bionic Beauty, I believe the full name is Thevi Cosmetics “Studio Direct High Impact”. I love the way the lipstick feels on and the look is incredible. The color I have sampled is Brandy Wine. Thank you Bionic Beauty!!!!
Here’s Bionic Beauty’s original review of Thevi’s High Impact lipstick. And a BIG thank you to Linda for sending in your thoughts!
Dear Bionic Beauty,
So many liquid foundations and face lotions claim to be oil free these days. Yet, when I’m shopping and read the ingredients it seems like there *are* oils in there. Is there a way to really tell if I’m getting something that is oil free?
I appreciate your help.
Olive Oil 😉
Well, Olive Oil, you are smart to pick up on the labeling that has become such a fad in the cosmetics industry. See, the real problem is that the labeling on cosmetics (makeup, hair care, skincare, etc) is not regulated. Companies can spin all sorts of misinformation on their labels and containers. You really have to be an educated consumer in order to know what is a good buy and what isn’t.
In regards to the “oil-free” claims specifically… there’s a pretty simple test to check if something you have in your stash is truly oil-free. Place a pea-size dollop of the product on a sheet of plain white copy, typing or writing paper (medium to light weight is perfect). Then wait. Let it sit overnight preferably, but you should start to see a change within a few hours.
If a ring forms around the product, it most definitely contains oil.
Here are some experiments I did with a few of my fave makeup and skincare products. Read on for the SHOCKING results…
