Name: Light Me Up Lipgloss in Illuminate
From MeMeMe’s website:
High shine lip colour complete with a mirror on the side and ingenious ‘light-up’ lip applicatior for easy on-the-go application. With plumping agents for a natural looking pout, this non-sticky ultra glossy light-reflecting formula is perfect for lips that love the spotlight!
What I liked:
– nice color payoff and shiny finish
– non-sticky texture that doesn’t dry lips
– pretty and cool packaging complete with mirror and light-up applicator
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– uncomfortable tingling sensation when you first apply it
– doesn’t last long
MeMeMe Light Me Up Lipgloss is a little gimmicky: it has a small and narrow mirror on one side and an actual light in the want applicator that lights up when you unscrew it. This is a very handy and clever idea as it allows you to easily apply and retouch your gloss on a night out. I admit I don’t really use it as I never go clubbing or at parties where the lights are low, but it’s really good to have it anyway as you never know when may need to reapply your gloss in the dark.
MeMeMe Light Me Up Lipgloss is available in 9 shades. The one I have is called Illuminate and it is a shimmering pinkish nude that looks very natural on the lips and would complement any look, whether it’s smokey, natural or colorful. Color payoff is ok. It’s not very pigmented, but not too sheer either, it’s just soft and provides a nice wash of color with a shiny finish that illuminates the lips.
The gloss has a non sticky texture that doesn’t dry lips but doesn’t moisturize them either so I suggest you apply a thin veil of lip balm underneath. However, when you first apply it, it gives your lips a tingling sensation that feels uncomfortable on the lips, but that doesn’t last long so it doesn’t bother me. It also has a mint scent that’s quite pleasant and fresh.
However, the gloss doesn’t last long on the lips. I get about only an hour of wear before it has disappeared and it’s time to apply again. But at least the mirror and lights included in the packaging means that you can easily retouch it wherever you are.
MeMeMe Light Me Up Lipgloss in Illuminate is a soft pinkish nude with a shiny finish and a non-sticky texture that’s not hydrating but neither drying. Once the initial unpleasant tingling sensation is over, it feels comfortable on the lips. It only lasts an hour on the lips but the packaging has an inbuilt mirror and lights that make application easy wherever you are.
