Bunny Hop

Makeup Geek Bunny Hop Showstopper Creme Stain ($12.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is bright, medium-dark pink with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was hard to build up as the first layer pulled up and became very patchy and uneven when I tried to put on a second layer. The consistency was smooth, thin, but it spread decetnly across the lips and only had some streaking. It lasted for four and a half hours before fading strongly from the center first, and the formula was slightly drying.

The Showstopper Creme Stain formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” and “highly pigmented and offers effortless, buildable coverage.” Highly pigmented and buildable make it confusing what the coverage actually is, since something that is buildable means that it is less pigmented but can be layered for greater coverage. The majority of shades were medium to semi-opaque in coverage, hard to build as they often pulled up the first layer and shifted color around. The formula rarely applied well; it was streaky, dried so fast that there was no time for corrections (and attempts to correct just made it worse), and clingy. I found the applicator rougher, and the packaging made it seem that sometimes it was more like I wasn’t getting enough product on the wand to even coverage half of a lip (it seemed like the opening was wiping away too much product from the doefoot applicator). For every single swatch, I had to dip and pull the wand two to three times just to get enough product to cover my lips (it was impossible to stretch out the product very far as it dried as I was spreading it). It did dry to a transfer-resistant finish, but it did not survive eating well (most liquid lipstick formulas have survived better for me). Though transfer-resistant, it remained slightly tacky for one to two hours–and if you use more than one to one and a half layers, it often lifted and separated the color.

The brand’s swatches and lip swatches showcase a seemingly opaque product, but I could not achieve opaque coverage with several shades, even trying four or five layers, and the result after five layers of product was uneven, patchy, and cakey. The wear was average–four to six hours with significant fading from the center, which is more what I’d experience with a typical lipstick and a liquid lipstick–and surprisingly, little staining, even with deeper shades. So far, they have been slightly drying to somewhat drying. There are so many high-performing liquid lipsticks on the marketplace already, so I was caught off guard by the poor application and performance of this formula.

Moonwalk

Makeup Geek Moonwalk Showstopper Creme Stain ($12.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium, cotton candy pink with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color payoff that applied unevenly to the lips, and it was not buildable as the color did not layer well and often would lift parts of the first layer off (which made it look even worse). The consistency ran thinner, almost watery, and it was difficult to spread the product far on the lips as there was so little product on the applicator. On me, the color lasted for four and a half hours and was slightly drying.

Cha Cha

Makeup Geek Cha Cha Showstopper Creme Stain ($12.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. This was one of the more pigmented shades in the range–almost opaque!–and applied evenly with some streaking along the edges (even after it had dried down). The consistency was thin, dried down very quickly, and emphasized the natural texture of my lips. It wore well for four and a half hours and was somewhat drying.

An altogether bad bunch of lipsticks, some lovely colours but there are so many lip products you can’t just release an edition this bad, IMHO of course.
I just noticed that they are called Showstopper Creme Stain. It sounds so much better and more comfortable than all of the products seems to be.

It’s a really weird name – not really creamy nor do they stain that much (less so than most liquid lipsticks…).

Cha Cha is *alright*, but I’m still not going to buy any of these. Even Cha Cha looks uncomfortable. I will, however, buy a few of the Lip Foils and probably at least one highlighter eventually.

I would take a total pass on this formula unless you are a die-hard MUG/liquid lipstick fan… As soon as I’m done with these, out they go!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
