I ran into Dollar General for some eyelashes. I don’t normally wear them but I had a special occasion to go to, which I’ll explain a bit later.
Husband and I wanted to go to the next stop on our list of errands, but they hadn’t opened yet, and so by him telling me to “take my time” I ended up buying a few lipsticks. I know, you can hardly believe it.
The brand is one I am not familiar with, but decided to give it a shot after I was so displeased with the Colour Pop lip creams I purchased a while back.
Today’s review is on the Broadway Colors buttery matte lip cream in the shade, Hello, Sunshine.
The product is very affordable, at only $3. That’s half the cost of the Colour Pop matte lip creams. I’ve had a hard time going back to lip creams since then. Those lip products were very drying, and had a chalky, uneven look.
But… I was killing time and that led to lip color purchases.
First, the product states it has mango, shea and cocoa butter in the formula. The scent is light mango and refreshing.
The wand has a precision tip, which is quite useful. I was pleasantly surprised that the product was buildable, unlike others that just wipe off more when you try to fill in that pesky spot. One coat was all I needed to get a nice pigmented color.
And once you have it wiped on your mouth… well it feels comfortable and easily wearable. I even forgot I had lipstick on at one point. A dangerous move, as you can easily end up with it wiped clean across your cheek without a helpful friend to point out your faux pas.

And here it is right after lunch, a while later
I liked that the product did not bleed, and would only need a slight touch up after eating.
This one is a winner for only $3 at your local Dollar General!
oh yeah, and what did I need the lashes for? Well I performed at a wedding, alongside my aerial friends, in the lyra and poured champagne during cocktail hour. Here’s my makeup look for that day:
