Beauty Pie x Jenna Lyons
I have been SO excited about this launch as it is a really good one: Beauty Pie and Jenna Lyons have teamed up to create an incredible collection of lipsticks, or rather… Unlipsticks. Lightweight and buildable, with a matte blot look – like blush, for your lips… but still creamy and hydrating. I didn’t think it was possible for a brand to create such a hydrating formula that is also very sheer and matte. These are a wonder product!
Beauty Pie Refresher
You know how much I love Beauty Pie. They are a luxury members club for beauty products. You pay one low annual membership fee ($59) and in exchange you will be able to shop for luxury beauty. Think skincare, makeup, haircare, bodycare, candles (obsessed with their candle), fine fragrances, accessories, even nutritional supplements. All at up to 75% off traditional retail prices… Beauty Pie strips out the 10X typical industry markup.
Beauty Pie was founded by Marcia Kilgore (the woman who brought us Bliss, Soap & Glory, and more!) It is the first membership club of its kind. They work directly with the world’s leading beauty labs to get access to the same luxury products we all know and love… for way less! Use code GRACESENTME for $10 off your first Beauty Pie order.
Beauty Pie x Jenna Lyons Unlipstick
Jenna Lyons obviously needs no introduction. She’s a global style and the woman who “dressed America!” She’s also a self-professed lipstick obsessive… I feel like she is kind of famous for that bold red-orange lip we all know and love! (For the record, shade “Jenna” will help you replicate her iconic look.)
The formulas are made in Italy and just… extraordinary. They are moisturizing and sheer… yet matte. The best way to describe it is like putting blush on your lips, but with a little bit of that hydrating lip balm feel we all still want, especially as colder temperatures arrive.
They are natural and buildable. So if you want to go bold, do that! I really like that you can wear just a coat for a hint of color or build up the shade (and use the coordinating liner for something more statement-making. There are eight shades (including a trio of perfect reds, reflecting Jenna’s iconic style), plus five mix-and-match liners.
Says Jenna on the Unlipstick: “It’s so sheer and so conditioning when it first goes on, and it genuinely does build in intensity with more layers, but not in an old-fashioned, loaded-up ‘lippy’ way.”
I love that the Unlipstick bullets are sold as refills that fit perfectly into Beauty Pie’s Keep This Case (a refillable lipstick case). The case is made of 100% recycled aluminum. It has a magnetic closure and click and feels very high end. You can wait til you are done with a bullet OR, switch things up depending on your mood. The bullets easily snap in and out and each bullet comes with a little cap to keep it fresh.
I tried out four of the shades: Jenna, Strike While It’s Hot, Crushed Petal, and Nothing On. See below for iPhone photos showing how they look on me!
Strike While It’s Hot is the perfect warm red.
Nothing On is a peachy nude.
Crushed Petal is a really pretty neutral pink.
Jenna is the perfect fiery orange-red.
