with review of Logona lip products
It’s fashion week time and we are facing again novelties for the new season! While rearranging my makeup kit and browsing about the latest trends, I decided to make a post about the lovely lip products from Logona. First reason is that I adore this brand and their lip products have so beautiful colors that I want to share the color swatches with you. Another reason is that although their website is very nice designed I had an issue to choose the lip colors. So I hope that these swatches will be helpful for all of you who are looking to update your “lip wardrobe” 🙂
Green makeup tip I have chosen a look (see top picture) that I like and which is from spring 2014 runway (Helmut Lang) where the main inspiration is the focus on lips. The color is a warm brown red (we are coming again in the 90’s trends!) applied in a free manner without any strong lip liners. You can achieve this same exactly look very quick with one of Logona double pencils (n. 2 or n.3) with a touch of lip gloss on top, if you want a shiny effect.
Logona lip products
I have taken a few pictures of Logona swatches on daylight so that you can see the pigmentation and their colors thoroughly. Logona lip pencils are ultra versatile, because you have 2 colors in 1 product. They are very hydrating because of shea butter and other natural oils. They also have some natural extracts (organic cranberry, organic apple seed, organic brown algae extract) that act as an anti-aging complex. These products are also free of gluten and lactose. I like the fact that every pencil has 2 shades from the same color family: one is matte the other is slightly shimmery.
The only thing that I recommend with all natural lipsticks is to set well the color and perhaps take the lipstick with you for touch ups during the day. Because of their ultra hydrating properties some women tend to “eat” the lipsticks. They have natural extracts which are not super long lasting, but with a touch-up I think this is not a problem. The main point is to use natural non-toxic ingredients because they’re ingested when we use the lipstick. For me the lipstick is the most important product to invest in because we literally “eat” it.
Logona double pencil n.2 (chestnut) brown with a warm red undertone: great shades for the statement lips in 90’s look; the left is matte, the right one is shimmery.
Logona double pencil n.3 (berry) two lovely plum/berry shades with some cool undertones, suitable for blondes and for a very elegant look. The left shade of this pencil is shimmery, the right one is matte.
Logona double pencil n.4 (beige) one of my favorites, very wearable nude shades for the 60’s Bardot nude lips or for completing a nice smokey eye look (left is shimmery, the right one is matte).
Logona double pencil n.8 (pink) I’ve used this lip pencil in my 1st Logona video tutorial and it’s a nice pink shade; the matte (right) is a medium dark pink that you can easily wear during the day and the 2nd shade is a much lighter shimmery nude pink with more cool undertones(left).
This image shows the swatches of Logona lipsticks and a lip gloss. I have tried just one of their glosses; n.2 in rose shade which is a wearable almost clear gloss with a hint of rose color. The texture is creamy and matte with a discrete sweet aroma. It is not sticky but hydrating and moisturizing, because is loaded like other lip products with natural oils and anti-aging extracts from plants. The application is super easy because the applicator on the tube.
Next to the lip gloss swatch there are other Logona lipsticks. The picture is taken on sunny daylight so the shimmer is even more enhanced and the colors are slightly lighter because of the light, but in general are their real colors. Lipsticks are full of natural oils like the other previously mentioned products and enhanced with precious stones like quartz and amethyst. All lipsticks are ultra soft, with a hydrating texture that glides easily on lips. Every lipstick has the Logona logo embossed in the lipstick which adds a luxurious feel.
Logona lipstick n.1 (rose) beautiful nude warm rose with a subtle shimmer
Logona lipstick n.2 (pink) a bright light shade of cool pink with a subtle shimmer
Logona lipstick n.5 (almond) a pearly medium warm brown with a rose undertone suitable for day or elegant evening look
Logona lipstick n.6 (coral) a deep creamy orange red that is a very wearable red with lots of warm orange in it
Logona lipstick n.7 (wildberry) a medium shimmery plum with cool undertones that I’ve also used in the video (evening look)
Logona lipstick n.8 (moonlight rose) one of my favorites; nude, very wearable and sophisticated rosy beige shade (matte) that is just the right shade to enhance the lips during the day
Logona lipstick n.9 (light copper) a pearly nude bronze sand color with warm undertone, nice for a summer look too.
These are my swatches of Logona products from my make-up kit, if I will add any new ones, I will update this post.
