AQUA LIP Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil

16508

The extremely waterproof texture of this pencil allows to reshape and emphasize the lip contours. Ultra long-lasting and non-transferable, it stays on for hours, even in extreme conditions.

It is water and saliva resistant. It can be used on the entire mouth, after applying a non-oily skincare on the lips (Lip Contour Skincare Pencil). The range of matte shades offers natural tone-on-tone palettes and other more intense colors.
For hygiene purposes, sharpen the pencil well with the special pencil sharpener before each use to draw a precise line. – Draw a line directly on the contour of the lips, reshaping them if necessary. – It is essential to put the cap back on after each use in order to maintain the fluidity of the texture and the product’s waterproof properties. – To cover the lips, apply the Lip Skincare Pencil, leave to dry for 1 or 2 seconds. Then color the lips with the Aqua Lip pencil. To achieve a non-transferable result, wait for the product to dry (evaporation of the volatile oils). – To remove the product, use the Sens’Eyes makeup remover (for waterproof products).

To draw a full mouth, use 2 pencil shades : a dark one on the lip contour and a lighter one on the mouth and then blend together. You can also use a dark pencil on the contours and a lighter lipstick on the lips. Do not apply any oily substance (Lipstick, Gloss, etc.) on the pencil as this would cancel out the waterproof effect. This pencil has been designed to meet the requirements of professionals: natural colors for the film and television industry and intense colors for the stage and aquatic ballets. To make a mouth bigger (very thin lips) or to reshape the contour of a wrinkled mouth, make sure that the surface of the skin is not oily (foundation or cream) and if necessary, dust with powder before using the Aqua Lip pencil. To draw a full mouth, use 2 pencil shades : a dark one on the lip contour and a lighter one on the mouth and then blend together. You can also use a dark pencil on the contours and a lighter lipstick on the lips. On the beach, after applying sun cream and powder the lips before applying the Aqua Lip pencil in order to achieve a waterproof result. Do not apply any oily substance (Lipstick, Gloss, etc.) on the pencil as this would cancel out the waterproof effect.

Packaging:

Okay, I am a sucker for pretty and cute packaging and this also has won my heart. This lotion has such sweet and simple feminine packaging which I would have even bought without even sniffing it :P It’s a transparent bottle with a silver color cap which you press the top to dispense product. The lotion is itself a very light pink color, so the bottle looks like it is that color too. The packaging also has “Mad About You” written on very pretty looking flowers. I am really glad BBW has new style bottles, I really got bored with the old packaging.

My Experience with Bath and Body Works Mad About You Body Lotion:

Before I bought this product, I had tried samples of this, so I knew what I was getting into. I received some free samples from my friend who had received these sample bottles even before the product came out. Ever since I became a fan of this scent and just had to go out and buy it.

Whenever I buy any type of lotion, the scent is always the main factor for me. The scent of this is just amazing! It is a smell which is hard to describe, something of various flowers and fruits and fruits – something sort of roses, jasmine, and berries. I just love how the scent lingers on my skin many hours later. I get so many compliments from my husband :D. I apply lotion all over my body after shower most mornings and when I return home around 6 or 7 o’clock I can still smell it all over me, though it is not as strong as it first smells, but it is still lightly there which is longer than usual lotions.

The consistency of this lotion is fairly thick. It is definitely not runny and when applied it goes on thick. It feels a bit too thick when applying but my skin absorbs it quickly and after some time, the thick heavy feeling is gone. I have combination skin tone but it mostly depends on the season. My skin tends to be on the dry side in the winter since most of my time is spent in central heaters so my skin over dries. I have been trying out this product since this winter and it has kept my skin from drying up and instead I am left with soft and supple feeling skin. Even after 6 to 7 hours, my skin still looks and feels moisturized. I do not have to worry about re-application (except for my hands). It works exceptionally well for dry elbows, knees, and heels. For the price of this product, I think it is definitely worth it and even currently BBW is having a huge sale so all you ladies must take advantage.

Pros of Bath and Body Works Mad About You Body Lotion:

  • Smells very refreshing and fruity.
  • Provides perfect amount of moisture for skin.
  • Perfect for winter time use.
  • Moisture lasts a long time.
  • Lingering scent, stays on skin for hours.
  • Pretty packaging.

Cons of Bath and Body Works Mad About You Body Lotion:

  • Consistency can be a bit on the thick side.

IMBB Rating:

5/5
