Revisit: Free Spirits Cosmetics #MarchMadness

You can read about my first time around with this local brand here. Even before doing that post I knew I wanted to try different colours from the line, i.e. more everyday wearable ones. I got 'Luv Me Or Hate Me' from Celebrity Spot in Bridgetown.


At Girlfriends Expo, while 'Caribbean Queen' still eludes me, I did manage to get 'Pink Star' Lip Cream. The packaging of both items is the same with the exception that the ingredients weren't listed on the plastic wrapping of 'Pink Star'. The formulas are also consistent; the lip cream is pigmented and provides opaque colour on the lips with minimal product. After trying those L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints, you really appreciate these types of products coming with a doe foot applicator. The lipstick appears sheer upon initial application but is easily built up without looking cakey. Due to the nature of this pinky-nude colour it can be worn sheerly without looking terrible.




All of my initial thoughts still apply and I'm happy to have new shades in my collection. Free Spirits Cosmetics products are also now available via Faerie Faces / Beyond Beauty Barbados.
