USA Lipstick & Cleopatra Liquid Liner [Vasanti Cosmetics Review]

I have been in hibernating mode for sometime now and it's about time I come out of my cave. I did miss the twitter/blog world very much!

I was sent a few Vasanti Cosmetics to review by the wonderful Farah. Today, I will be reviewing two products.
I also received an awesome concealer but that will be for another post.

This is a Canadian Brand and can be purchased in selected Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall/Pharmaplus.

USA
Soft Finish Matte Lipstick
 USA: This lipstick comes in sophisticated silver packaging. It has a matte formula while still being very hydrating and creamy. It also has great long lasting power throughout the day. It stayed pretty well throughout my lunch meal. =D
There are only three colours in the Soft Finish Matte Lipstick Line. I hope there will be more colours in this line as I absolutely love the formula. USA is a muted blue base red lipstick. The blue tones are not as strong as Mac Ruby Woo or Russian Red Lipstick. It can be worn in almost any occasion. It's really up to you and how much you dig red lippies!
Swatch Comparisons
 Pro:
-Heavily pigmented with long lasting power
-Matte formula glides on smoothly yet being creamy

-Formula consists of hydrating light diffusing and anti-oxidant properties. 
-Scent of this lipstick is pretty impressive!

Con:
- Although it is considered a higher end drugstore brand...the price maybe an issue? It is $15 Cdn.
- Only three colours are available from this lipstick line. 


Overall Rating: 5/5

 ========================================================
(Black)
 
 
  Cleopatra Liquid Liner: It's an intense black liquid liner that comes in sophisticated silver packaging. The handle is easy to use and apply liners unlike other brands. I love that it's super black! The brush is quite flexible so it's easy for precise application. It does state that it is smudge-proof however it is not waterproof. I do not know how it will hold during the summer time. It might have tendency to smudge then. It did stay well on me all day long as I had winged out the liner. I think this would be around $16 USD.


 Pro:
-Intense pigmented black liquid liner
-Dries to a matte finish

-Long lasting and smudge proof depending on the weather/temperature
-Flexible brush tip for easy application to make thin lines
-I have used it for almost a month now and so far there is no clogging/thickening in the product.  


Con:
-I would want this to be waterproof as I would prefer wearing this during the summer time as well.


Overall Rating: 4/5
  
 Eyes: Vasanti Cleopatra Liquid Liner, Ardell Wispies Lashes, Freshlooks Grey Contacts
Cheeks: Mac Blunt Blush, Nars Amour Blush, Mac Other Worldly
Lips: Vasanti USA Lipstick

  That's all for now folks!

The shade of red looks absolutely great. The wife has been looking for something to replace her old lipstick once it runs out. I'll suggest this and see how it goes.
