I won four Cailyn makeup products in an Instagram contest and I've been using the products for several months. I'm finally getting around to doing a review. I was introduced to this makeup line through Ipsy. I loved their liquid lipstick and started following Cailyn cosmetics on Instagram, which I would recommend because they do contests! Who doesn't love free makeup? In this review, I'll be sharing my thoughts on the four products I won.
Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint in Expressionist
This liquid lipstick is a great formula that will last all day after you've applied a few thin coats. It has a yummy vanilla scent too. Make sure your lips are exfoliated for the best application. This is my favorite Cailyn makeup product that I have tried. I am definitely a fan. It's a little bit drying, but I think the long wear is absolutely worth it. Expressionist is a bright tomato red with a yellow undertone. I prefer reds with a blue undertone, but this is still wearable if you want a bright red lip. I have several other colors too!
Cailyn 7 in 1 Dual 4D Fiber Mascara
This is a fiber mascara with big claims: lash conditioning, lengthening, curling, volumizing--all while being waterproof too. The brush is supposed to "apply a rich amount of formula without any excessive coating." I found there wasn't excessive coating, but there also just wasn't enough mascara coating for me. I have pretty wimpy lashes and I really need a mascara to add a lot of volume and length. I do love that this mascara has a brush specifically for your bottom lashes. This makes it a lot easier to apply mascara on the those little bottom lashes without getting mascara all over the place. I also found the mascara to be pretty dry.
Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow in Espresso
Gelux eyebrow is an awesome product for a dramatic brow. The formula is thin, which makes application easier. Plus, it comes with a brush in the lid to apply the product so you don't have to buy a separate brush. It's highly pigmented and easy to apply. Bonus tip: be sure to clean or wipe off the brush after each use. I forgot to do this once and it made the brush funky.
Cailyn Line Fix Gel Eyeliner
The Cailyn gel eyeliner is another great product. It's similar in consistency to the gelux eyebrow. It also has a handy little eyeliner brush in the lid. It's a great liner for applying a simple line across the top of your eyelids and gives a similar look to liquid liner with the ease of gel. I haven't tried to do a cateye with this liner yet, but I think you could do one I would just use a different brush.
I hope this review is helpful if you are considering purchasing any of these Cailyn products. Have a beautiful week! Let me know if there are any new makeup items you are currently loving in the comments.
