Carousel Cosmetics ♥ That's What She Said // Review + Swatches

Carousel Cosmetics Lipstick: That's What She Said
Carousel Cosmetics Lipstick: That's What She Said

I have briefly reviewed / posted a first impression of Carousel Cosmetics' That's What She Said lipstick back in August, you can read the post here. While the packaging didn't impress me that much, I had rave about the good quality and excellent pigmentation of the lipstick.

At the time of my first impression post, I have only had the lipstick for a few days; so I was not able to fully judge it; and now, nearly two month later, I had plenty of time to wear and experience this lipstick and I gotta say, it is one of the most pigmented and long-lasting lipstick around!

CAROUSEL COSMETICS is a New Zealand beauty brand own by online beauty boutique Beauty Bliss, I have shopped from their site a few times in the past and I had great experiences with them; always been impressed with their delivery time and excellent customer service. 

When I posted my first impression post of the beauty line, Carousel Cosmetics only stocked five lipsticks; and now I just checked, they have added new makeup brushes to their line. I can totally see Carousel expanding their line and become more and more well-known in the beauty world! 

Carousel Cosmetics have described their brand as bright and fun ~ Their lipsticks are designed and marketed in New Zealand; but they are made in USA and they have ensure the brand will delivery high quality and true to color products. I currently only have one lipstick from the brand and I have yet to try their makeup brushes, if they do come out with a flat-top foundation brush, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it heheh I am in need of a new foundation brush and Carousel's makeup brushes aren't expensive! All of their products are quite affordable. 

THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID ♥ is one of the five lipsticks from Carousel Cosmetics, it looks like a beautiful Barbie pink shade from the lipstick bullet; but it appears as a fuschia / darker pink once applied on the lips. The formula of the lipstick is described as a non-drying creamy texture.

I have previously mentioned that I was not a fan of the packaging and I was told that Carousel Cosmetic was only a few weeks old (at the time of my first impression post), so things could change in the future and there will have new packaging once the brand grow a little more. I guess we all have to start somewhere to becomes successful right?! Drake: ♪ started from the bottom now we're here  I am really looking forward to the new changes of the brand, especially their packaging ^^ I imagine something kawaii ~ ^^

So... anyways, this lipstick is seriously ahhh-mazeball! The pigmentation is like WOW IN YA FACE! No really LOl, it's very pigmented. The lipstick applies smoothly and nicely, it is very creamy but it doesn't smear around, it doesn't bleed (I don't wear lip liners that often) and it last up to seven hours for me. The longest I have worn That's What She Said it was seven hours, I haven't worn it longer than seven hours so I am not sure if it will last any longer?! After I have remove my makeup, the lipstick leaves a heavy stain on my lips; lipstick stains can be removed with makeup remover oils.

WHAT I LIKE:
Keep my lips moisturize during the whole seven hours of wearing time.
♥ Pigmentation is amazing and color is bold and fun.
♥ Application was easy, no tugging, no dragging, went on smoothly.
♥ Lipstick last up to seven hours for me, could last even longer if I didn't remove it so fast.


WHAT I DISLIKE:
★ Slightly yellow teeth :( That's my only problem with all bright colors lipsticks.

  2. I love Carousel - I got one of their lipsticks at a Makeup Obsessives goodie bag. I like the packaging, nice and sturdy and doesn't fall off in your bag, and the horse is cute!
