I was able to go to Lockwood Astoria's Ladies Who Brunch event on Saturday, March 25th. The event featured two pop up shops: one with Jolii Cosmetics and one with Lisa and Lucy NY. I was particularly interested in purchasing some goodies from Jolii Cosmetics. I came across the brand on Instagram and really wanted to buy a couple of their products. I was so excited to find out that the brand was having a pop up shop at one of my favorite local boutiques.
This event also coincided with Shop Small Astoria weekend so that just motivated me to go out there and check it out. When I got to the store, it was very easy to spot the display for Jolii Cosmetics. Although it was tempting to get every shade they had, I approached the transaction with caution. I picked up two liquid lipsticks: the shade Vita from their Matte Creme collection and the shade Amore from their Matte Velluto collection. I actually met the brand's founder, Sasha and she let me swatch all the shades I was interested in.
I've only worn both shades once or twice and I want to play around with them some more before I do a review. So far, I am liking my experiences with the two liquid lipsticks.
