Ever buy something on a whim and then think, Why did I do that? Well, I sorta feel that way about Hare Magic Green Moroccan Lipstick. I read a post about it on Total Beauty, I think it was. A young woman tried out a magic green lipstick that changed color on her lips and stayed on for 24 hours. She loved it. Remember Mood Lipstick from the 1980s?
Well, I fell for it. The 24 hour part really got me. And I loved the “changes color according to your unique body chemistry” thing that was promoted with mood lipsticks decades ago.
So I ordered it on Amazon. It arrived from the UK about a week later. It cost about $11 including shipping.
It arrived on one of the 90 degree days we had, and when I took it out of the mailbox, it was hot. Like a dope, I didn’t put it in the fridge or wait till it cooled off. I used this green monster right away, and the bullet came off because it had softened in the heat. 🙁
Is it long-lasting? I would say up to a point. It does last for several hours, like any decent lipstick, and it fades with time and if you eat a meal. Today, I applied it around 1pm and it’s after 10 now. I can see that a smidgen of color is left on my lips, but not enough to prevent me from thinking I need to put on some lipstick.
Did I mention it is rather hideous looking? And it’s a cheap lipstick in a garish neon green & gold plastic container that’s made in Taiwan, nothing against Taiwan. I have no idea what the ingredients are, but I assume it’s better not to know.
Do I regret buying it? Nah. Thankfully, it was only $11, and it was fun to try it out. And I do wear it from time to time. Would I recommend it? Certainly not.
What have you fallen for lately and sort of regretted?
