When I had the chance to try out and review these CIRCA Infinite Dimensions Lip Collection products, I jumped at the opportunity because there are few things better than drugstore products that are great quality. Each piece in this collection has the look and feel of a luxury beauty item without the steep price tag. CIRCA‘s creative director is actress Eva Mendes and the collection is sold exclusively at Walgreens. I have 2 lipsticks, 2 lip glosses, and 1 lip pencil to show you today from the collection.
The High Definition Lip Contouring Pencil is designed to enhance the shape of your lips and prevent your lip color from bleeding and feathering. I personally love the small size of the tip, because it is super precise and allows you to outline your lips no matter what size or shape you have. I also like that it has an automatic twist-up top, because I dislike sharpening lip pencils all the time. It has a matte finish that is super creamy and pigmented. My shade is 01 – Nude, which is a universally flattering nude-pink shade. I like that it’s very subtle and great for daily wear with a natural lipstick color.
The Lustrous Shine Lip Polish is a very special product, because it takes a lot for a lip gloss to impress me. Each gloss comes with a doe foot applicator and each gloss has gorgeous pigmentation. These have a slight sheerness to them, but only enough so that you can layer the product to be more or less intense in color. 08 – Boucle Crush looks like a berry red shade in the tube, but translates to a more berry pink shade on the lips. 07 – Cashmere Kiss is a nude-pink shade that looks very natural. Both are very lustrous and luminous, giving you a high gloss finish. Avocado oil keeps these from drying out your lips. I also love that they’re non-sticky and don’t have a weird scent to them.
The Color Absolute Velvet Luxe Lipsticks are the winners for me. I’m a huge lipstick junkie and I love that these have a velvet-matte finish. These were super opaque and rich in color in just two swipes. It’s difficult to find drugstore lipsticks that can put down great color like these. Every shade is named after a famous iconic actress from the past. 08 – Lana is a bright coral shade with a velvet finish. This is probably my favorite out of the entire collection. It’s so vibrant and flattering! It feels moisturizing and weightless. 05 – Audrey is also superb, putting down fantastically rich brown-pink color. This one is very natural looking and is definitely classified as a “your-lip-color-but-better” product. I think both of these shades are universally flattering on all skin tones, with Audrey being the more natural choice and Lana being the bolder choice.
The CIRCA Infinite Dimensions Lip Collection is chock full of lovely lip choices (and luxurious packaging) for everyone and anyone. Available at Walgreens stores exclusively nationwide, these are high-quality, inexpensive drugstore products that you won’t regret purchasing. Whether you’re a lipstick or lip gloss wearer, there is something for everyone. There are also plenty of other shades which you can check out online here. The best part? The price tag. Every single product retails for only $10.00USD!
