Just like anything else in fashion, make-up trends also come and go. But regardless of these trends, lip colors are always on the top of the must have list of every woman especially those that are long lasting. One of the recent products that I have tried is the Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stain from Mirenesse. Although it is labeled as a lip gloss, this bomb gives you a lot more than your average gloss. It acts as a lip stain and shiner with a moisturizing effect, combining gloss and color that lasts for hours.
Mirenesse is a cosmetics brand in Australia that combines advanced technology and holistic approach to deliver quality beauty products. They are currently recognized as Australia’s top online beauty brand with award winning make-up and skin care products in their line-up. The Lip Bombs are one their latest award winning creations bagging the Best Lip Gloss Award in beautyhaven.com’s Gloscar Awards 2013. These products are made from high quality, safe, clinically proven, natural, eco-friendly, and hypoallergenic ingredients. Knowing this makes me comfortable and confident to try the products. They have a lot of bright and nude shades available that can be mixed to create your own shade. With the minimalist make-up being in the trends this coming season, their nude shades can be great additions in my vanity kit.
The best thing that I loved about the Mirenesse Lip Bomb is the light, moist, and velvety finish. There are some lip gloss brands that offer the same rich and smooth finish but most of them tend to feel a bit creamy or heavy on the lips. I also like the light minty scent that gives it a refreshing element when you wear it. The product comes with a great applicator in an hour glass shape and fitted with soft sponge tip that makes it easy to apply. The sponge absorbs enough gloss to cover the entire lips with minimal dips. However, one should be extra careful during the application as it tends to smear during the first few minutes. But once it dries up, one can be confident that I will not smudge or smear anymore.
It can last for up to 4 to 5 hours before the colors starts to wear, leaving a soft stain that is nevertheless true to its original color. However, since application can be a bit messy during the first ten minutes or so, you have to consider the drying time for re-application as well. Or you can just be content with one application and make do with the sort of matte version of the lipstick after the first four to five hours.

The Lip Bomb is totally worth it’s price! Overall the Mirenesse lip bombs are not so bad vanity kit additions for no-rush and long lasting make-up for any day.
