Â Itâ€™s been said by passionate careerists time and time again â€“ if you love your job, youâ€™ll put your blood, sweat, and tears into it. Now, beauty lovers can apply the same mentality (well, maybe not literally) to their beauty regime thanks to Rain Cosmetics.
The Vegas-based beauty brand has a lot to live up to. The line was inspired by the cityâ€™s glamorous nightlife, and they even refer to themselves as â€œThe Sexiest Makeup in the Worldâ€â€¦.so when I tested out their Blood, Sweat, and Tears lip trio, I was hoping to be nothing less than amazed.
Naturally, each product in the trio serves a different purpose. While you can definitely wear each of the shades alone, I prefer using the three together for the best effect.
Blood: Blood is a red lip stain. Stains can be tricky, but this one is an awesome product for first-time users because it isnâ€™t too dark upon first application. I prefer a darker lip, so I put on about 2 or 3 coats. TIP – Make sure you exfoliate your lips before applying ANY lip stain! If your lips are dry, youâ€™ll wind up with uneven color that is hard to remove.
Sweat: A shimmery champagne sparkle, Sweat adds some needed dimension to Blood. I found that when wearing alone, this product wears off pretty quicklyâ€¦so for best results pair with Tears to lock the sparkle in.
Â Tears: Tears is a standard, slick high gloss. The sheen lasted longer than other clear glosses and added the finishing touch to Blood and SweatÂ that will make your lips pop.
I was very pleased with the collection and it has officially been added to my daily beauty routine – a girl can never have too many red lip stains! The set retails for $30.00. Check outÂ www.raincosmetics.com to learn more about other products in the collection.
