Beauty Bakerie Lip Whips Review
Have you ever had such high hopes for a product that the disappointment that arrives upon realizing that said product is not all it’s cracked up to be is almost too much to bear? Yup, that’s how I felt about the Beauty Bakerie Lip Whips. To say I was disappointed by the quality of these liquid to matte lip whips is an understatement.
But rather than focus on the negative, let’s take a look at what the company DOES have going for them.
- Packaging. The packaging, overall, is gorgeous. Whoever came up with the packaging and overall visual brand needs a medal. Just SUPER cute.
- The colors I selected are bright and fun and perfect for spring and summer and, for the most part, were pretty on my deep complexion. Take a look:
Unfortunately, the pros far outweigh the cons.
- I felt a little mislead by the name of the product. If a product is called a “whip” you would, most likely, assume that the product will have a whipped texture. Not so. They are your run of the mill liquid to matte lipstick. The texture is not whipped, not at all.
- These don’t smell baked either. While the site doesn’t promise that these are scented, I again, felt like i had been baited to think I’d be receiving something that smelled like baked goods. Not so. These are unscented.
- These are perhaps the most drying liquid lipstick I’ve ever tried. They felt like dried clay on my lips. Not even remotely comfortable.
- Mango Hibiscus tea and Tres Jolie were fairly sheer once applied. Tres jolie, eventually applied evenly, but Mango Hibiscus Tea was patchy. It’s unusable without heavy assistance from a lip liner. I don’t normally mind using a lip liner, but when I pay $20 for a lip product, I shouldn’t be obligated to purchase additional items to make it work.
- Overall I felt that there was a LOT of attention paid to packaging and branding, with little attention paid to the quality of the product inside the tubes. Beauty Bakerie as a company has grown a lot in the last year, but rather than invest some of their earnings with a higher quality product, they’ve instead invested in packaging which, for me, just feels wrong.
