  • okay, Actually.

  • Really.

  • Gross me out.

  • Hi, eyes.

  • I'm Jessica.

  • I'm your unofficial beauty expert.

  • Although I do have some official training.

  • I used to work for four years at Sephora.

  • Today, we're gonna be looking at almost every single lip product under a microscope.

  • Very, very, very class.

  • We're gonna be seeing color, payoff, texture and which products are right for you Before we get into anything else.

  • I want to take a look at my webs, see what we're working with.

  • I don't want to be alarming, but this is the coolest thing I've ever owned in my entire life.

  • It's our beauty microscope.

  • I don't have a lot of things.

  • Let's take a look.

  • Oh, it's really scary and super up close and a little dry in places I didn't expect it to be.

  • Dry hoops.

  • I do not exfoliate as much as they should.

  • And sometimes when a gal goes out and she goes home, she goes to bed and she doesn't take her makeup off.

  • Also, a fun fact about your lip is that everybody has a unique lip print similar to your fingerprint.

  • And it could be used in forensics, so don't go kissing at your crime scene.

  • Let's get started with some lip scrubs.

  • First, we have a store bought lip scrub.

  • Next, we have a home remedy, which is sugar and honey.

  • Sugar Granules are actually a really great exfoliate because they're not too abrasive on the lips.

  • You want to be very careful about the experience you use on your lips.

  • Anything like an alfa hydroxy acid or a salad acid might be too intense.

  • Also, any tree nuts scrub a lot of body scrubs are not suitable for the lips.

  • Don't do it.

  • I want to be gentle.

  • So we have our lips scrubs.

  • I'm gonna do one on the top and one on the bottom so we can compare all scrubbed.

  • Gotta get all of this.

  • Okay, so my top lip was done with honey and sugar, and it looks moves in.

  • My bottom was done with that weird jelly exfoliate, and honestly, it also looks moved.

  • So it's the same.

  • It's whatever you want to do.

  • So before the exfoliate, we saw a couple of flakes to dry skin, which was super cute, and now it's like a fresh, clean surface.

  • But let's get to the fun stuff now we're gonna try out some lip gloss is we have some high end ones.

  • We have some drugstore.

  • Once I feel like look, loss is one of those things that you don't need a mirror to apply.

  • You just be running down the street and rubbing it all over your face, and it always looks good.

  • I'm gonna do this section with the drug store.

  • OK, We're not getting a lot of product on the dough foot applicator.

  • I think I could have licked my lips and got the same shine, but it feels nice.

  • It's like, Wait.

  • Now we have our high end much smoother.

  • And the applicator fits nicely right by the Cupid's bow right here, which I appreciate.

  • Let's get this.

  • Okay.

  • It's actually really cute.

  • It looks like a bunch of little bubbles.

  • I'm obsessed with bubbles, So that was the high end.

  • Now we're gonna look at the drugstore.

  • Okay, this one's bubbly, too.

  • I think there's a little bit of shimmer in comparison to what my actual lips look like.

  • There's zero texture, just lots of moisture, and almost like this bubbly texture on top, it makes everything super shiny and plump looking so that is a bonus.

  • Now we're gonna move to the lip plumping lip gloss.

  • I don't have a lot of experience with plumping lip gloss is because I don't really need to plant my lips.

  • This tingles okay, they're getting bigger.

  • We want to get in.

  • We want to get up close.

  • Let's see what's going on.

  • Okay, so it basically looks exactly the same.

  • But less surface area fits in the lens because my lips are like twice the size.

  • I want to talk to you guys about the different types of lip plumping ingredients.

  • The first type of lip plumping are Hugh mech tins, which plump your lips through moisture, using ingredients like ironic acid or glycerin.

  • So basically it's just adding more shit to your lips, and then they look bumper.

  • The next is an irritant.

  • Like its title, you're causing a tiny irritation on the skin to make your lips appear more plump, you're basically causing an allergic reaction on your face.

  • The shit we d'oh!

  • Some of their tents include peppermint, spearmint and capsicum.

  • That's the tingling that you're feeling and that I'm feeling now that my lips are now nice and juicy.

  • We're gonna try glitter lip gloss.

  • I mix my products at home all of the time we're gonna do this handmade glitter gloss on the bottom.

  • I got so excited.

  • I want to call this a foiling technique, which I don't know if that's really but I am wearing a lab coat, so I'm allowed to make stuff up and we're gonna call this boiling.

  • Wow, What a natural look here way.

  • I can't look at it.

  • Oh, uh uh yuk unbearably look at it cause it's so shiny and disco.

  • We But here looks great.

  • Moving on to the top.

  • Okay, so we have a little bit of transferring from the bottom, but this one is more socially acceptable to look at.

  • This one feels like you put on a layer off tinfoil and glitter on your face.

  • However, the payoff is totally worth it.

  • This looks so cool.

  • And the top one is fun.

  • Not as cool but easier toe wear.

  • But I'd wear this to the grocery store.

  • Three exact same thing.

  • Now we're going to move to lipsticks.

  • But first, a very important snack break.

  • Something I love about Cheetos is that they taste amazing, But sometimes they leave like tasty pigment on your lips.

  • So while we have a microscope here, I think it's very important we look at it up close.

  • Breaking news.

  • It's justice grosses I thought it would be.

  • There are things that we should never look at up close, and this is one of them, but they still taste good.

  • Now, back on track to the lipsticks takes purple.

  • We have a ton to try.

  • This is just a tease.

  • First, we have your classic lipstick cream formula.

  • Bullet form.

  • Easy up.

  • Down.

  • Okay, we're gonna do the whole life here so you guys can really see the color payoff.

  • I love it.

  • It's nice and dry.

  • I did a couple of strokes just to get like coverage, but the pigment is amazing.

  • Like one stroke, you get a pretty solid color.

  • Oh, Ah, it looks like a traffic cone.

  • The color payoff is amazing.

  • A lot of pigment spreading across the lip, but it's not totally in every single crevice.

  • As you guys can see on the video, there could be a bit of a transfer or a bleed around the lip line, which is why, in those cases you want to add a lip liner to given nice, clean edge.

  • We have here a clear lip liner, which is one of my personal favorites, because they go with everything you have for the next lipstick I'm going to try on to prevent any bleeding.

  • I'm gonna put this clear lip liner underneath and something that I love about the clear of pencil to.

  • You don't have to be absolutely precise and perfect because it's clear okay onto our matte lipsticks to get the mat effect.

  • Matte lipsticks have less oil than your traditional clean lipsticks, which means that the last longer, but they might dry out your lips a little bit faster.

  • It's not totally map, but we'll compare it to this liquid math.

  • Neither one of these air that map.

  • We'll give him a second to dry.

  • I'm expecting to see the same thing we saw with the cream lipstick but less shy top lip.

  • First, my top lip looks like a leather car seat, which I love Not a shiny but great color pay off.

  • All of the color is like in the crevices, which I really appreciate.

  • Uh, okay, why?

  • Want, want want?

  • Wow, it really got in there and all like the crevices, just like the cream.

  • So I don't know, maybe some things are more similar than we think.

  • And as you guys can see on the video, the lip liner is doing a really good job of containing all the pigment on the lips.

  • And there's less feathering like we saw in the first lipstick.

  • Next, I'm gonna try on a color changing lip stick.

  • What's happening here is a pigment in the lipstick is reacting to the pH on your lips and turning to pink.

  • So this really feels like a cross between the lift glass in a chopstick.

  • It's slowly turning a little pink.

  • Fun fact.

  • A lot of these lipsticks say that it matches your skin tone, but as you can see, this product is pretty translucent.

  • So everyone skin tone is gonna show through, and it's gonna have a little bit of a pink day.

  • Let's take a look under the microscope.

  • I think of Cheeto dust left over.

  • It looks just like my skin, except a little bit more moisturized, with like slightly little bit more pink.

  • I like it, but what I think is really interesting is the change from green to pink.

  • As you can see here, it's nice and green, but there's nothing for the product to react to, so it's gonna stay green, but we're gonna watch it.

  • Change color.

  • Whoa.

  • It's like green slime like Ghostbusters, your lips of a Ph of five, which has a similar reaction that the water has, which has a Ph of seven you can see here are little glob of water is now a pretty pink, and that's the product reacting with the water and changing colors.

  • Next, we have a lip pigment, which is a pigment in powder form.

  • I have zero experience with this.

  • I'm interested to see how it goes.

  • I'm confused.

  • Why?

  • You would want to put a powder on your lips, but we're gonna try it.

  • We're gonna check it out, and we're gonna look at it underneath a microscope and it's gonna be cool.

  • I could barely see this product.

  • It's like putting your eye shadow your blush on your lips.

  • Why?

  • So just to compare it this side of my mouth has nothing on it, and this side of my mouth has nothing.

  • I mean, has the powder on it away.

  • plot twist.

  • I think I might like it once it's fully on its subtle.

  • I am a little concerned about its staying power because it's just a powder and it's not really a cream.

  • There's nothing to like, sink in and really cover, but let's check it out.

  • This is actually really nice, so you can still see my lips through the powder, but it leaves us like nice little dust across it, just like a little dust of glitter.

  • Really subtle.

  • I bet you would look really great, actually, on top of a matte lipstick or a cream lipstick for really cool layering effect So this might be worth the add on tastes awful.
