So we all know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, which is completely correct. Lots of beautiful things do not necessarily come in beautiful packages. This is not the case for ModelCo’s Lip Luxe Duo – their beautiful package also conceals a great product.
ModelCo’s Lip Luxe Duo caught my attention immediately with its packaging (yes, it was that easy with me). On one side of the product, there is lipgloss (Strip Tease), the other, lipstick (Dusk) – while in the middle, there lies a mirror; all in a neat package, that, though of course larger than your standard lipgloss tube, I eventually got used to. At first I found it a bit bulky, but after using it a few times, the size didn’t bother me at all. I love the fact that there is a mirror in the middle, allowing you to check your application right away. It would be great if the lipgloss applicator was on the end that detached from the mirror, so that you can use the mirror as you apply your lipgloss/lipstick, but you can still manage to use the mirror after your application.
I stuck to the lipgloss, as I don’t really use lipstick (and the gloss looked much better on me than the lipstick). It smelled and looked great on my skin, giving a bit of a nude-lip colour. Don’t let the lipgloss name “Strip Tease” fool you – for my skin tone, it definitely did not look anywhere near like what its name implies!
