Review: I was more than thrilled when I learned that Jason Wu has expanded his fashion brand and added a beauty line. His exceptional work designed the former First Lady, Michelle Obama's, clothes did not go unnoticed so I can only assume that he has curated this beauty line meticulously. As I mentioned on my Instagram post, I am happy that someone who is knowledgeable in the field of beauty has launched a new makeup line; not that there is anything wrong with influencers and celebrities starting out a brand. I am also loving that Jason Wu Beauty has added to the continued growth of BIPOC brands. I received these Hot Fluffs (amongst other items from the brand) as part of a Valentine's gift.
Let's start with the packaging and let me tell you that nothing about it is basic. This comes in a nude beige-pink box packaging with black typography. The box has a clear window where you can see the product and the shade color of the lipstick. The side of the box has photos of women using the product. I love that he did not use a celebrity or "brand name" models for this cover, it makes it more appealing to me. The lip bullets have a soft matte feel to them and with the Jason Wu brand imprinted in black on the caps. I also like that the whole lipstick bullet is in one color that reflects the shade of the product.
I did a live GRWM in my IG stories using these Hot Fluffs and I used Cannoli as my blush and patted a light coat on my lips. While this says it is a matte lipstick, it feels comfortable but as I mentioned in one of my lip reviews this week, I've stayed away from matte hippies for the past couple of years. I took the chance and used the shade Biscotti as my bronzer and I was surprised how it showed up nicely on my skin. These Hot Fluffs are easy to apply (I used a Sephora Pro Diffuser Brush) and blend. They are also pigmented and long-wearing. I did not test them on my eyes as I already know this is not a formula I prefer to use as an eyeshadow. These Hot Fluffs come in seven shades that appears to cater to a variety of skin tones. The only thing I would change about these Hot Fluffs is maybe changing the container into a larger one, less dainty than a lip stick bullet to make it look and feel like it is also a cheek and eye product. Plus, we need all the product we can get from this gem!
I highly recommend this product as a lip and cheek product (I didn't test it on the eyes so I cannot speak about that). Also, another thing I noticed is the price difference from Jason Wu's website and from Target's. So, I recommend buying it directly from Jason Wu Beauty website to save a couple of dollars.
