Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Hi all,

 

Wondering if the Lisa Eldridge lipsticks are worth hunting down? Thoughts?

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Ispend2much6, Vega is on my buy list for sure!

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@TraceyEB  I changed my mind to Myth. 🙂  I'll probably change it again.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Ispend2much6, Myth is very tempting! Sounds like you want two palettes for Christmas! 🎄

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@TraceyEB  You read me so well!

@Ispend2much6 😉 😂

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Now that I've (finally) watched Lisa's video and read details at her site, I'm kinda torn on the eyeshadows. A couple palettes (Sorcery and Myth) interest me, but: 

 

  1. Holy markup, Lisa! Pat McGrath's MTHRSHP 6-pans were less expensive. Sure, Pat's 6-pans came in cardboard casing vs. Lisa's fancy metal magnetic casing, but you got more product in a MTHRSHP. I can't fully attribute Lisa's palette price to the casing because 
  2. The single shadows are also pricey. Assuming each pan = 0.9 grams (total net weight of a palette ÷ 6 pans), $16 USD per single shadow is a bit steep. Natasha Denona's singles cost less per gram, and now they're even cheaper since Beautylish has 'em marked down. Viseart's singles cost even less per gram at their regular price. 
  3. I don't see where Lisa's selling an empty magnetic palette, but I'm curious about what it'd cost on its own. 

 

On a positive note: this isn't Hourglass-level eyeshadow markup. 😂 (I still don't understand why HG thinks their single shadow and loaded palette prices are reasonable.) So hey, pricing could be much worse. And I dunno, maybe Lisa's shadows perform well enough to justify the pricing. To find out, I'll probably order 2 or 3 single pans and put 'em in one of my spare MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Refillable Makeup Palette Extra Large . Curiosity will make me try at least 2 of Lisa's shadow formulas. 

 

Eye brushes: I'd love to try one but not for $50 USD. They're 100% synthetic and I want to see for myself how soft they are. Even for Japanese crafted synthetics—and I'm unclear on manufacturing method (Lisa mentions the bristles aren't cut but instead mold-shaped, but she doesn't state the brushes are actually handmade; if I missed that info in her video or on her site, lemme know)—$50 for a blender is too much. Chikuhodo's Z-11 blender costs significantly less, and it's a handmade grey squirrel brush. If anyone gets one of Lisa's brushes, I'll be interested in your feedback! 

 

Lipsticks: aaahhh, my weakness. 😅 I like some of the new shades but I don't need 'em. I'm surprised by how much I like Velvet Enchantment. And I love Velvet Duchess but that's gotta be one of the MatteTrance Elsons so I'll talk myself out of it. 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

They are quite pricey and even smaller than a typical standard eyeshadow, but yes not quite half of the cost of HG singles lol. When I was trying to calculate buying singles and trying to find an empty palette for buying one it was ending up that I wasn’t going to save much. I am surprised that the singles cost so much shouldn’t they be closer in price to what it would cost per palette like say $12 . If that’s the case and she ends up putting a bundle price where you could get the palette and six pans for the same cost of the premade ones, then what is the deal of having to re-purchase a refill if it cost more?!

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@WinglessOne, after Lisa talked about herself using a Z-palette, I was excited at the thought of singles until I saw the singles exceeded the cost of a palette. I've been putting eyeshadow and blush singles into customizable cases since my early makeup days using Aveda and, later, Bobbi Brown, and I purchased most of it on sale. So, I'll probably buy one palette to get a feel for the formulas. I find it odd that there isn't an empty palette for sale. I also looked at the brushes but it took a second seeing $50 to rule that out.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Admittedly I was really interested in the lip brush she was using to apply the lipstick but apparently that’s not going to be released until next year lol but yes the price made me choke a bit

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Good idea @WinglessOne . Tough to choose shades. I wondered on her brushes so I appreciate your thoughts. Will wait and see what others think. This is one line I’m also so frustrated to never see in person ahead of releases. Grr. Lol 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@WinglessOne @Thank you for sharing your thoughts! They are pretty but you’re right, quite pricey. Especially for something no one can swatch in store !! I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts - the brand is still on my list of ones to try, but I’ll probably stick to lipsticks ! 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

Agree @Kim888 ! Want to see in person always! 😭

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@WinglessOne  Oh, great idea to use the MUFE palette- thanks!  Good idea to try a shadow or two first.  But, the way I think (on the way to an empty wallet,) is buying a whole palette saves me $28 as compared to single shadows. 🙂

 

I immediately thought of HG's shadows too.  I still can't believe they haven't hit rock bottom prices yet; I can't imagine that many people are buying them at full price so that they don't need to get rid of some before their shelf life ends (although I do really like the palette I have from that line- cool grays and black and blue.)

 

Velvet Enchantment is on my list.  I hope there's a way to find out if it skews orange at all before it sells out.

 

 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Ispend2much6  Heh, I'd save $28 only if I planned to buy 6 singles vs. a pre-made 6-pan palette. And since I plan to buy only 2 or 3 singles, I'll save $20 or 36. 😉 I think I can dupe most of the shades in each palette... maybe not all the finishes per shade, but definitely the shades themselves. So this experiment will be more about testing Lisa's formulas than anything else. 

 

Even if Velvet Enchantment quickly sells out, it'll probably be restocked. That'll give you time to see other folks' reviews. 👍

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

There are also 5 velvet lipsticks and the eyeshadows will be available as refills, too.

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@Mochapj thanks for the stills. I am so torn., I don't really like any of the configurations of the palettes as they are. I see you can buy refills but I need an empty palette but she don't; seem to sell those 😞

 

I will be needing 3 of the new Velvets however!

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

I’m deceased @ChristalM 😭. Several lips and maybe an eye. Loving the lip shades! Same feelings on eyes as you guys . @aviscardi 

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

in comparison the singles are quite pricey, i wonder if thats why she is not selling the palette alone. As it would end up being more that the premade ones

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

@aviscardi Oh that is very true. If singles are offered tomorrow I think I will just get 1. I don't like the configurations as they are sadly 😞 BUT that taupey shade in Vega is lovely!

Re: Lisa Eldridge lipsticks

She has the singles up on her site now so they should be available tomorrow. I’m still tossing up on my order
