Vov Candy Lipcolor Palette


I had posted my haul pics for last month a couple of days back and one thing that caught a number of reader’s fancy was the Vov Lip palette. I got this from the local beauty store from where I buy all my Vov and Miss Claire makeup. I got this for around 190 bucks and the palette has six colors. Basically I got this palette just because I was so tired of waiting for the Inglot sale to start. Well, I am sure the quality is no where near those creamy Inglot lipstick refills but this one is a great palette for the budget conscious.




Along with the six lip colors the palette also contains a lip brush which is actually quite good. The bristles are soft and application is fairly easy with the brush. It also had a cap but my ever adventurous makeup lover daughter threw it somewhere. There is also a cover for the lip colors and a small mirror. I liked the packaging. It is quite thoughtful and looks good as well. The bubble tops on the cover allow you to see the color.


The first is a clear gloss with fine shimmer while the second is a light peachy lipstick. The third is a coral pink with a slight shimmer. The fourth one is a dark pink while the fifth one is a light orangish red. The last lipstick is a bright red. All the lipsticks have average pigmentation. Here I have swiped the lipsticks twice only. While the first two do not show up on my lips at all, the last three are my absolute favorites.








The texture is smooth and it glides on easily on even my dry lips. The staying power is beyond awesome. It lasts for more than eight hours and even if you have meals in between there will be a slight tint. No problems with fine lines and dryness. Here is an FOTD in which I have mixed the fourth and last shades. Palettes are so much fun..I love all that mixing and matching (I sound like a little girl)


My recommendation: If you can find it do get it. It is a good palette with some pretty shades and its great for travelling as well.
