Hi my loves!

I have finally swatched ALL of my “M.N ME NOW GENERATION-II “LONG LASTING LIP GLOSSES” that I had ordered a couple of weeks ago from:  http://www.buyincoins.com … I came across these matte lipsticks and was completely in awe at their CHEAP prices. I had heard they were dupes for the infamous Limecrime “Velvetines” and therefore I had to get my hands on them…. (pretty much all of them actually)


When you go to the website type in “WATERPROOF LIP GLOSS” in the search engine and you will automatically be linked to the lip glosses. You can even find them off of Ebay but the website I got them from (www.buyincoins.com) is great because it is free shipping! The lipsticks retail for an amazing $1.21 USD. Yes – I am serious. They’re THAT CHEAP! Now being so cheap you must wonder if the quality of them is actually good & pigmented & long lasting? Well you will see for yourself about the pigmentation with my lip swatches. They are almost ALL extremely pigmented except for 1 or 2 (#14 to be exact)


The colors range from peaches to pinks to reds – all shades in between. They have a fruity scent as well – nothing too strong but it’s definitely there. I personally like it.


They are mostly ALL matte with no shimmer but there are a couple of them with some shimmer – you will see in the swatches. They all dry COMPLETELY MATTE & DO NOT TRANSFER. (Think Limecrime Velvetine’s or the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks.


Now for the fun part: the Lip Swatches ❤ I have 18 colors in total. There are some similar shades but they all vary and a couple as I said have some shimmer.

NOTE: Some of the swatches may look “glossy” or “shinny” but that is only because since I had so many swatches to do I didn’t let them dry COMPLETELY. Once they are completely dry there will be no shine or gloss – just a completely matte color (except for the shimmer ones of course) ❤ They are labeled with #’s so I included their number next to each swatch.

 There they are! All 18 of them. (By the end my lips were literally soo sore & swollen because these things are no joke – they are waterproof & taking 18 of them off did a number to my lips! But I had to do them for you all <3) As you guys can see they are all mostly extremely pigmented! I am so in love. Compared to Limecrime & Kat Von D’s which are $20+ these for under $2 are such a STEAL! Which is why I pretty much ordered them all. So excited to share with you guys these amazing dupes.


There they all are without the numbers next to them. The only thing I wish they has is names instead of numbers – but hey I ain’t complaining! I forgot to mention – these were all done with 1-2 coats – so pigmented! xoxoxo hope you guys enjoyed these swatches & let me know if you order any! Once again I bought them from http://www.buyincoins.com (just type in WATERPROOF LIP GLOSS in the search engine and you will find them – free shipping also!!)

    1. Thanks julia for the swatch review! Im getting 6 of them and have no idea which colour to choose!!

  1. Great post! I’m intrigued and would be interested in buying some especially at that price but I do not se any ingredients list. Does it come with anything? I recently read an article about harmful stuff that is used in makeup that should be banned and isn’t regulated in most countries. So I am just a tad concerned.

      1. Sexy colour …I use no 28 and 08
        But No.25 & 27 sexy too…how can I order from you and u have limited order

      2. I enjoy you because of your whole hard work on this web page. My niece really likes doing research and it’s really obvious why. A number of us learn all about the powerful ways you deliver insightful things on this web site and even attract response from other indviiduals on this issue then our favorite daughter has been being taught a lot of things. Take pleasure in the rest of the new year. Your doing a pretty cool job.

    1. I’m not sure if this website is a reliable source, but according to it, these lipsticks contain:
      Isododecane, Acrylamides copolymer, Kaolin, Styrene-Ethylene/Propylene,
      -(Styrene)Block Copolymer ,Cetearyl alcohol ,Cera Microcristallina, Methylparaben,
      MAY CONTAIN: [±CI77491 / CI77492 / CI77499 / CI15850 / CI77019 / CI77891 ]

      Hope that helps 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on Makeup Crazy and commented:
    Ever wondered about these lip products? Well here’s some amazing swatches and a great review. Make sure to check out the original blogger! 😀

  3. I just ordered like 6 of these! I’m so excited! I was wondering are there any colors you weren’t fond of? We seem have similar skin tones and I was eyeing 24 and 14 maybe even 01 but they seem so light in the pics on the website. Do they deepen in color when they dry?

  4. Thanks for this blog, these are great! I have one, #36 (couldn’t remember where I ordered from, so you helped a lot with this link) – and I just ordered another, #32… they are just amazing, especially for the price!

    1. I have to edit this post – the store you put the link for claim to ship worldwide, but they cancelled my order 😦
      The good news, though, is that you can find the on Ebay for the same price and free shipping…

  5. This review was SO useful! I had bought #28 from eBay, and was very disappointed with the color (way brighter than the pictures show). Finding this review helped find a better swatch, thank you! ❤

    1. I ordered No. 28 off of Wish.com and I am very happy with the color. The only problem I’ve had with it is that its very very very hard to get off. My lips were cut and swollen by the time I got it off.

  6. I ordered few of these on ebay.. but i find it really really hard to remove them from lips, is that normal??? Also they feel kind of sticky on lips :/

  7. I’m not sure u said this but are they sticky? What do they feel like on your lips? Light weight or thick? Thanks they look gorgeous

    1. I have 12 of them, and I think they feel very dry. These definitely aren’t lip glosses you want to be kissing with! After awhile, they kind of flake too. But they’re really good for the price

    2. ‘yes… i think they are too sticky… BUT i think i solve it using a lip balm before aplying the MN lipstick 🙂

  8. There is a total of 36 colors, its better to find them on Aliexpress.com. you can get them individually and in bunk.

  9. I got 2 of these lip glosses and yes the pigment is great .. taking the product off my lips was literally me having to exfoliate it off with soap Vaseline and a rag… I may have gotten a bad batch but I agree that they are sticky it felt like I used elmers glue stick on my lips.. im sorry but this didn’t work for me

    1. I know this was a long time ago lol but i literally just got some today and i felt like i got a bad batch too cause when i smacked my lips together they would stay stuck i was getting a little scared until i read it happened to someone else too

  10. nice review. i live in Indonesia. can they send it here with a free shipping? or i should pay a fee? thankyou

  11. I love your reviews!! Super nice pictures 🙂
    I have already try the lipsticks and I have to say that I’m a person that like to use bright colors, but this are excellent, and for the price you can expect this, but they’re longlasting.

  12. i love how these look! but i’m a little bit worried cuz it’s so cheap and all that they might have some not-that-great ingredients in them that might get absorbed over time through the lips? like lead? does anyone know what the safety standards are like on the product?
