Review: The Sola Look

Hi Glamifys

Recently, a group of us hauled at this new indie brand from USA that was probably unheard of by many of you.

The Sola Look has 6 lipstick shades specially catered for the Latina in all of us. Sexy, sultry and oh la la!

Each lipstick retails for USD 12 and there is a bundle pack called The Glamática Collection that includes 3 of their most popular shades.

International shipping is at a flat rate of USD 10 so pull together some of your friends to make this as affordable as possible 🙂

As a first purchase, I got hold of the 3 piece collection that includes Isabel, Carolina and Karla. This retails for USD 30.

Isabel is a creamy matte nude biege that is a little more brown than it is pink. It has a slight sheen and satin finish. Buildable coverage 🙂

Carolina is a creamy matte magenta which screams a berry hot pink. It has a cremesheen finish that glides on smoothly.

Karla is a creamy matte red that is sort off a more cooler shade of blood red. Cremesheen finish and does not bleed into the fine lines :p

Overall thoughts are that the lipsticks glide on easily without tugging. The texture is moisturizing and smooth as well. Does not bleed or rest in fine lines. Thumbs up!

Best part of it all? Not tested on animals and are paraben and lanolin free 🙂

I thought for the fun of it, I’d compare them to some of my MAC Cosmetics lipsticks. While none were exactly a match in terms of color tone or texture/finish, this should give you a slightly better idea of the lipsticks 🙂
