Rain Cosmetics Private Jet and With the DJ Glam Lipsticks
Rain Cosmetic Glam Lipsticks ($20) are described as having extreme color and moisture that will stay put throughout the day for all-day glam. Combined with moisturizing mango butter, grape seed oil, and Vitamin E. Available in (15) shimmery and matte shades.
Private Jet is a sheer nude-beige with pink undertones and a shiny finish. Because it’s sheer, it’s a very easy nude to wear without the “concealer lips” look. Even when layered, the natural shade of my lips still shines slightly through. It reminds me a bit of the discontinued Revlon Soft Nude Lipstick, which was one of my drugstore favorites.
Because of the moisturizing formula and sheer color pigments, this shade didn’t emphasize dryness or settle in my fine lines like many nudes tend to do.
The lasting power seems pretty average with this shade.
With the DJ is a vibrant fuchsia pink with a shiny finish. It’s more opaque than Private Jet, and provides some seriously long wearing power. Even after the color and shine has worn off, it leaves a bright pink stain behind that lasts for hours (until you remove it of course). I absolutely love this shade. It’s such a fun, bright shade when you want to extra glam, and also looks beautiful toned down with a lighter pink or nude. I even like mixing it with Private Jet to create a more wearable, vibrant light-medium pink.
The texture of the lipsticks are very slick and smooth. They feel initially really firm for the first couple of uses, but once you break them in, they are quite creamy and balm-like. I love the way they feel on the lips. I find them to be fairly moisturizing and I typically won’t need to wear a lip balm underneath.
