I contacted Rae Cosmetics regarding trying their samples and they sent me a decent amount of options; however, you do have to pay shipping to receive the samples. I believe it was $7.00 for shipping.
I felt like they gave a nice variety of samples, but the amount in each sample container was limited on some of their products compared to others. For example, I received a decent amount of blush, but not so much on the lipstick. Below is the sample of Rae Cosmetics Lip Shade Lipstick in Gulf Coast Gal that I received –
Onto the review…the lipstick goes on very smooth and adequately moisturizes the lips and definitely does not dry your lips out. The cost of the lipstick on their website is $18, which is a little more than I’m usually comfortable spending on cosmetics that I haven’t heard the name of before. On their website, the following picture was used to illustrate the color Gulf Coast Gal –
I’m not sure if this is a sample in which I was able to pick the color I wanted to try, or if they just sent me a sample; however, I usually do not wear this shade of pink on my lips because I like lip colors that are a little more bold. On my lips, it looks more like I’m wearing a slightly tinted gloss than a lipstick, so if I was to purchase a color in the future, this is probably not the one I would go for. I do think this could possibly be a good color for a more laid back and relaxed type of day!
So, I’d like to know what you think! Do you like this color? What do you think of the price? Any other additional information you want to share with me?
The Verdict: Recommend for the way it makes my lips feel; however, I probably wouldn’t personally choose this color for myself.
