Priscilla x Rincon Cosmetics Lip Color Review
Makeup stylist to the Bravolebs Priscilla DiStasio paired up with one of her go-to cosmetics lines, Rincón, to develop a line of long wear, matte lip color. Here’s a look at the colors we love and the scoop on what you can expect from “Pure” “Bella” and “Housewives”.
Keep It Real,
I want to tell you about the first lipstick to ever last a whole meal, and day. My obsession with Priscilla DiStasio began about a year ago when I caught a glimpse of her doing makeup on one of the housewives. I went on a deep dive into her Instagram and within months it seems like her amazing talent and skills launched her into makeup artist stardom (plus a cameo on Real Housewives of New Jersey!). She is the talent behind Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer, Tamra Judge, Teresa Giudice, Stephanie Hollman, and so many other iconic housewife looks at Watch What Happens Live, during testimonials and parties. Together with Julius Michael, her partner in crime, known for the best faux bob this side of the equator and the genius behind making all the long haired housewives chop their locks, they shave ten years off anyone they touch.
From foundation secrets, lush lashes, the glitteriest eyeshadow and basically erasing any imperfection, anything she touches turns to gold. Now, of course her canvasses of housewives certainly start out beautiful, but she elevates their looks to perfection. Every. Time.
But Priscilla picked the pout to focus on, with her amazing collaboration with one of her go-to brands, Rincón Cosmetics. Priscilla X Rincón teamed up to create three perfect matte velvet liquid lipsticks. Worn alone or layered (I’ve done both), the colors are vivid, the options are endless, and most importantly this stuff STICKS. I have never been a lipstick/gloss person because I eat so often that I find applying just to reapply a waste of time. I keep trying to be a lipstick person but I tend to be super lazy when it comes to beauty (don’t tell Julius I get 1-2 haircuts per year).
So when Priscilla’s three colors (a deep red perfect for any complexion, a casual nude perfect as a base or to layer, and a pretty perfect pink) arrived on my doorstep, I was excited for my package, thrilled for Priscilla, but pretty skeptical about how often I’d use it. Well fast forward almost a week and I have used it every day. I wore the beautiful deep red (‘Housewife’) to work, pink (‘Bella’) for date night, nude (‘Pure’) for the daytime, and then mixed layers and added gloss here and there. I have never had a lipstick last a meal, let alone a whole day, and I’m sold. This is not an ad people! I did an official “kiss test” on my wine glass—stayed on my lips and that’s it.
The moral of the story is that these three shades are incredible. I am so proud of Priscilla and her huge accomplishments, and I have high hopes for future products and collaborations!
Lauren’s Two Cents:
Okay, since Sally is the BBH Makeup expert I’m just riding the wave on this one, but of course have to add my two cents on a product I like! I agree with everything Sally said about the long wear and great matte look of the Priscilla x Rincón Lip Color collection. I’ve been wearing “Housewife” on repeat as you may have noted if you follow my personal Instagram, but also am into the way Bella looks! Housewife is most definitely a great red for anyone…Look at how it works on both Sally, Ariana and me! I used some liner to make it last extra long and loved the results.
Cheers to Priscilla and Rincón on a a fab collab, we look forward to what’s to come!
