IQ Cosmetics: lipstick and nail polish

18:07

Hey Beauties!

I have a review of two IQ Cosmetics. IQ Cosmetics is a brand by an Austrian sort of drugstore called BIPA. I recently bought one of their lipsticks and nail polish.


IQ Cosmetics Colour Flash nail polish in shade Green Flash


The color is what drew me to it. It is a vibrant light green color. I had some bonus, so I bought it for 2.99€. The original price is 3.99€ and it comes in a little bottle of only 6ml. As far as the color goes, I absolutely love it. I know this sort of green has been very popular in the spring, but I guess I just didn't like it then.



I like the glass shape of the bottle and the standard brush. I don't like the small amount of the nail polish and the fact that it's supposed to dry in 45 seconds. Who wants that? I can't even paint my whole nail, and the nail polish starts to dry. I hate that! What I also hate is the lasting ability. I find the formula covered fairly nice after just one application, although I always recommend a second coat. But what I hate is that it will not last -at all. Expect chipping the first day, if you don't have a great top coat. If you do, it will last you a bit longer.

Conclusion: nice color, hate quick drying, hate how not long lasting it it. Oh and I also hate the price, since it is a really small nail polish.

IQ Cosmetics Colourful Lipstick Nude in shade Beige


Now, lipstick is a whole different story. The packaging is a sleek rose gold shiny plastic, which may I say, looks very nice. I love the material and color of the tube. It costs 4.99€ and you get 3.5g of product.

The lipstick is part of their nude range and I love the color of it. It'a a bit darker to be nude on me, but it's a nice warm toned brownish nude shade. It has an orange undertone. It doesn't have any shimmer in it, but it's also not matte. It has that sheen of moisture to it. On the lips it feels pretty moisturizing, non-sticky and it smells divine. I can't explain the smell right, but I would say a very slight sweet, yet sugary smell, that is not offensive in any way. Almost like sweet vanilla. Since it is moisturizing, don't expect it to last a long time. It will however sit on the lips very nicely and it is perfect nude/brown shade for fall.





Conclusion: pretty moisturizing, smells great, worth the price, great brown color for fair ladies and even nude color for darker ladies.

As you can see down below, I was looking for this certain shade, since my L'Oreal Color Riche Star Secrets in 715 Jane Fonda, is going to an end. IQ one is a bit darker than L'Oreal, but it's in a similar shade range. I know I am going to love this one as I did L'Oreal one, if not more. IQ one is a lot more moisturizing than L'Oreal one, but still has good pigmentation.

  1. Šminka mi je zelo všeč. Lak pa sploh ne.. Ampak mogoče zato, ker sploh ne vem, k čemu bi kombinirala.. Tako zelo nenavadna barva je..

    1. Ne žal ne. Mogoče pa te kdaj odnese v Avstrijo-potem definitivno preveri ponudbo Bipe:)

  5. Nisem še preizkusila njihovih šmink, čeprav vedno, ko se v Bipi, brskam po stojalu. Lak pa je meni všeč, čisto moja barva. :D
