Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

 

  

@TeamBIC  generously gave me the option of any Haus Beauty Product to try for review and I received the HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA Hy-Power Eye, Cheek & Lip Pigment Paint Copper Shimmer  this morning so decided to give it a go!  Thank you so much for the opportunity to try something new and exciting out.  I chose wrong 🫣 but oh boy I have a shopping list of other Haus Beauty products I want to try now.  How does this happen?  

 

Eyes- it went on smoothly and blended well with a bullet and flat brush.  The edges were a bit patchy but I was able to smooth the transition by blending a sheer concealer into them.  The color applied well and dried down very quickly -like in 10-12 seconds so I had to work fast.  These would make great eyeliners!!!!  


Cheeks-  I applied this first to the back of my hand  and smeared it out before using a damp beauty blender to apply it to my cheeks.  It dries down sooo fast on both my hand and my cheeks and I didn’t work quickly enough so I ended up using a lot of force with a dense foundation brush to get a more even-ish blend.  Once dried it does not budge<I’ll get back to that.  It was hard to tell what was pigment and what was me flushed from the friction of trying to get even blending going on. 

Lips- I lined my lips with MUFE artist pencil and applied the pigment over top.   When I dried down my lips looked like raisins unless I smiled.  It felt a bit dry on but that was the least of my concerns. 

The back of my hand - I used my hand as a palette.  When I was finished applying I went to wash my hands with basic hand soap.  Not one but came off.  Cool cool.  I grabbed some Farmacy Green Clean and rubbed for a minute.  Panic began to sink in.  I used it again for another minute.  Omg.  Again.  🫣. Oh no!!  I scratched the remaining pigment off the back of my hand after the third attempt.  My hand was bright red for a bit from the friction.

You can see the panic in the photo, before starting the process of trying to gently remove it from my face after the struggle to get it off my hand.  I used the farmacy green clean gently rubbing and rinsing for a good while.  Switched to face oils.., More than the normal one minute of circular motions.  It didn’t want to come off my lips so I decided to pull out the Fresh Lip Scrub I was gifted earlier this summer.  A few minutes of scrubbing and my lips were freed and raw.  I then did a DDG extra strength face peel.  Omg don’t do these after scrubbing your face three times in a row. -but also it worked and I was able to get the rest of the copper pigment off my cheeks by removing the top layer of skin. My eyes are still stained and my lips are angry.  My cheeks have since calmed down after a soothing green tea mask.

Ha, the panic setting in.  Ugh the patchy cheeks are bothersome.

That DDG peel really revealed how much copper pigment held on.  
I’ll be skin barrier masking the next few days cause my skin is stripped.

 

On the bright side- if you are in need of makeup that absolutely WILL NOT BUDGE this is for you.  If you are a sweating performer absolutely I recommend! If you will be swimming and wanna look amazing when you get out of the water, this is for you;). Ha that’s all I’ve got, besides I really want to try the highlighter.  I am also considering how wonderful it would be to have a budge proof product like this for brows….

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyface Copper looks great on you! Good to know about the staying power. Thanks for your feedback

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

Thank you for the thorough review! Love your photos despite all the trouble you went through. I appreciate how helpful this was about the products used! @heartsmyface 

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyface the shade is gorgeous!! You look fabulous,,, do you think this product is a fail, or does it just need applied rather quickly?

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@lmaster  I’m waiting for reviews on the other shades cause pigments tend to all perform differently, but this copper shade is a no from me just cause its not the best blending wise and dried my lips out.  Plus I dont. Red this kind of makeup adherence in my life.  

i am willing to send it out to whoever wants to try it cause I’m done and not wanting to do the removal process again. 

Definitely move quickly and get that edge blending done right away.  I had ten to twelve seconds.  I’m  thinking a dense airbrush brush would work better than a beauty blender.  

 

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyface oh yikes!! That sounds like a major disaster 

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

Love your super-thorough review, @heartsmyface!  What a bummer that it caused some irritation for you, though, but that's good information to share.

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@CookieGirl1  Thanks.  I’m watching for other peoples experiences to determine if I should try a different shade.  

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyface I've seen/watched enough reviews to know that your difficulty with removal is "normal" but I haven't heard anyone else comment about eye irritation (yet).

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@CookieGirl1  My irritation was caused by me trying to get it off and not the product itself.  I like to think I have hardy skin cause it takes a lot of punishment but it really doesn’t like being triple washed followed by a peel.  And I made the mistake of trying to get the staining off my lids with the peel pads.  Don’t do that.  

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyface   Omg I don’t know what I would do if it wouldn’t come off 😬

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@ather  One of the things I learned dying my hair fun colors for years is that doing a face peel removes most skin staining.  It took me a while to remember that but it worked once I remembered.  

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyface  Good to know. I have a stack of those peel pads I’ve been thinking about using but I’ll save some in case of emergency!

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyface I must say that look is beauty on you, however it's shocking as to what is occurring with that blush. You're absolutely right... Green Clean removes everything so this is a very puzzling moment for me. Hope your cheeks are feeling better!

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@QueenMarceline The colour is gorgeous!  My cheeks are doing much better today.  Lips feel better too.  My lids are still slightly stained but it just looks like pink eyeshadow.  

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

Wow! What an ordeal @heartsmyface! I am so sad that it was so difficult to remove and that the quick drying time was not enough to work the product properly. It looks so beautiful though, and other than looking dry on your lips when you don’t smile, it is a shade that looks amazing on you! Have you tried to apply a balm on top? Would that soften it out and allow to remove? Would it make it comfortable on the lips and less drying looking? As you say, this is perfect for anyone looking for a water/sweat/balm/oil/and almost peel proof product! 

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@Saradestin  I feel like there was enough time to go in and blend with the eyes.  The cheeks on the other hand… my wrist palette was drying out as quickly as it was on my face.  You’d have to have an exact placement plan going in.  
I always prep with balm cause I feel all lip products look better on primed and moist lips, but I don’t plan to try this again to see if I can make things work better after yesterdays’ removal process.  This isn’t for me.  

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

Understood @heartsmyface That was painful enough...🙈

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

Your look is stunning still! @heartsmyface @Sorry to read that your face was a bit sore from all the scrubbing 

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@idanyd  I thought I made it work well even with the struggle to sheer it out- well, the cheeks were patchy… I looked like I had age spots. Pretty sure that flush was mostly my own and I just pushed the copper into lumps with fierce blending.  

Re: What are you wearing today Pt2

@heartsmyfaceThank you for the thorough review. It does look like a gorgeous color minus the not coming off till you scrub your face raw.
